    You can always just hide it with SBSettings.

    Nope. Just as fast as before.

    I tried jailbreaking my 3g s, but it didn't work... do you have to use at&t sim card for jailbreaking? Because I got my phone through EBay and it doesn't come with the sim card...

    Is there anyway to do it without at&t sim?

    Worked great for me. Only app I've installed was Cydelete to delete freeze. But all phone functions work fine

    sooo, if you're on a PPC Mac (like me) you're just S.O.L? Maybe Pwnagetool 3.1 will be PPC friendly?

    im actually restoring back to factory. i might re-jailbreak when winterboard is working properly maybe. i guess i got to spoiled by the speed of the 3GS. initially when i first installed cydia things were still snappy but after i installed five icon dock and five column springboard. i totally noticed a bit of a slowdown. kinda felt like a 3g factory. i noticed the reboot took as long as the 3g and loading up games took a little longer. not a big deal just not worth it for someone like me who only used it before to background my IM applications. now with push i dont need it. i do like some other things but i can do without it for now... just thought i would share my experience if your like me and the 3GS has fulfilled all your needs than skip this unless you need ultrasn0w.

    wow that was ridiculously quick!... backed up my iPhone 3GS, made it ra1n, and DONE in about a minute...pretty hot...installing Cydia through Freeze now...rebooted the phone...and there's Cydia...perfect! I didn't trust Purplera1n at first since it wasn't the Dev Team's work but damn, Geohot did a great job!

    So the only method to "hacktivate" for tmobile is still to pop in an at$t prepaid card?

    Default Skype Works Fine In Rain

Our only hope right now is either the Kernel patches come out, or the Dev Team's JB (which will more then likely already include these patches). Hope this helps.
    I have a purplerain JB 3GS, and Skype runs ON WI_FI just fine. When I launch Skype, I do get a "Doesn't work on modified 2.2 or 3.0" message. But I just ignore the message, which goes away when I start using Skype. Other than the alert, Skype functions ON WI-FI just like it did before JB. However, it does NOT work using Edge. :-(

    I installed Cydelete but stopped short of deleting Freeze. Now I've just figured out the CyDelete settings business. The route is Settings > CyDelete > Non-Cydia Detection > ON. D'oh.

    Below is a very short list of what I've discovered so far. I think the best advice I've heard is to wait until the dust settles before using too many Cydia apps. That said, I couldn't wait to see if Categories works, which it does!

    WORKS
    APT 0.7 HTTPS Method
    AptBackup
    AT&T Carrier Logo
    Call Clear
    Categories [thank heavens!!]
    Categories v1 Icons
    CyDelete
    Cydia Installer
    FindMyI
    Flashlight
    iPixel
    MakeItMine [yea!]
    Moon Phase
    OpenSSH
    OpenTTD

    THROWS INTO SAFE MODE
    WinterBoard [reported by others; I haven't felt the need to test it]
    qTweeter
    tricker3g
    voipover3g
    Tether
    Veency
