Absinthe makes the farts blow longer
Not the easiest JB ever. Took four goes before I got it to complete and that involved restoring my iPad to factory settings and running Absinthe from the command line. Still seems a bit flaky though. Couldn't get the BigBoss repo to load in Cydia and, although I've installed SBSsettings, it's not showing up.
My 'reasons to JB' apps:
SBSsettings –Use it all the time on my iPhone to toggle wifi and 3G without digging into System Preferences. Might actually sack it off on my iPad, as that's wifi only and I don't toggle that too often. The other reason for originally installing SBSettings was for RotationInhibitor, back when Apple's rotation lock was retarded beyond belief.
Firewall IP –Bye bye apps phoning home and making connections to shitty advertising sites
ContactPrivacy –Warns when apps try to sneakily access your contact data and allows you to block this
PrivaCy –Likwise block any apps from sending tracking data to twats like Flurry, Pinch Media, Moboclik...etc.
Netatalk –FOSS implementation of AppleTalk. Allows you to mount your iOS gadget in the Finder like a normal OSX volume
Truprint –The only printer software I've found [tried most of the ones on the App Store] which works with my Canon MX870
Apart from the apps, there's the geek stuff you can do after a JB:
–Connect to 'localhost' with iSSH and explore the fiesystem
– Install Ruby [or your preferred 'idle tinkering language']
–Setup SSH key pairing, so I can SSH into my iGadget without a password.
–Vim /User/Library/Safari/SearchEngies.plist and change default search engine to DuckDuckGo
Of course, if I wasn't a such a mindless, posing, Starbucks frequenting, Fashion-following, Kool-aid drinking Crapple fanboi, I could probably do something even more useful. But that lot keeps me happy enough, while I wait for my latte to cool.
