    Default Top of the food chain, one more time
    In tradition, I decided to take on the 2.1 challenge. If you've followed my previous threads I have a nack for shoving over 100+ apps on any FW with no conflicts.

    I'm proud to say I have 2.1 cracked wide open with full jailbreak, all the plug ins, and over 400 apps tested, of which I kept 60 or so on the phone after testing.

    Here's a sample of apps that were installed in testing and worked perfectly. Lot's of Cydia stuff, lot's of app store stuff, the glory mainly in the plug ins that you can't see.


    So as an FYI, 2.1 is just as WIDE OPEN and stable as anything else. It's been done.

    I don't wanna hear any griping about 2.1 "sucking" it's just as stable as anything else and FAST.

    Fair effort, maybe you should go for a 16gb phone and get some tunes on there as well.

    Simple.

    (#1-) Pwnage CFW 2.1. Don't even bother loading stock FW in itunes first. I feel like that puts things in the phone that screws everybody up later. CFW only in the phone seems to work smoother. (JMO) Leave installer off, just Cydia.

    (2-) xs _ _ _ _ repo for 2.1 app sync (patch II). The patch was originally designed to make cracked apps work, but ironically help actual regular old paid apps work since some are buggy and have permissions issues being verified. The patch opens the gates up a bit so any apps load properly. For once hacker-ware benefits the straight and legal.

    (3-) Get'r done

    As I've said before too, I don't really use customize for anything, and try not to use it at all in most cases. I manually modify the springboard so it doesn't have to depend on anything else. I just replaced the dock manually on my 2.1 with no programs to depend on, no winterboard, no customize....... good old hand coding. It never fails you or conflicts. The wallpaper is a bit more tricky. That's worth using winterboard on, really.

    Here's my 2.1 phone after a few hours of work tonight.

    Thank you very much for your explanation. I am unfamiliar with the CFW abbreviation. Can you explain it to me? Does it mean "cracked firmware" referring to pwned firmwares?

    Thanx again
