A day back in iOS jail

It’s only been 1 day since I received my replacement iPhone 4, this one, dutifully, has a working lock button, but it also has the latest firmware (4.2.1 at the time of writing) and the only jailbreak currently is a ‘tethered’ jailbreak.

That means whenever the phone reboots you have to plug it in to a computer in order to get it to startup. That’s really not for me. I’d rather put up without jailbreaking than chance my phone crashing and not being able to use it until I can get to a computer.

So, I’m back to being a standard iPhone user — pretty immediately, there are a few simple little things that are bugging me. Most of these things are so minor that it’s stupid there isn’t an option to change them…. Then again, I suppose it is Apple I’m talking about.

Safari popping up the bookmarks screen when there aren’t any tabs open. I DON’T WANT THAT! — No Bookmarks fixed it.

The App Store closing itself whenever you download / update anything — “StayOpened”

Last.fm live scrobbling! — MobileScrobbler

There’s no quick way to change screen brightness. iOS4′s multitasking bar would be a great place for a brightness slider! The iPad gets one; what does the iPhone get? A fucking Volume slider. Volume. Yeah. Because those two buttons on the side of the phone are just there for show. — Oh SBSettings, I miss you the most.

Being able to turn the light on without opening an app — Spring Flash. That was really useful.

For some reason I like having 5 icons in my dock… you get the picture by now.

On a more geeky note, I need to find myself a SSH client app. Unbelievably there aren’t any good, free one’s in the app store. MobileTerminal did just fine whilst jailbroken. Hmph.

I so hope the dev team come up with an untethered jailbreak that doesn’t require a 4.1 SHSH :(
