    I am a new iPhone user, and this is my first iphone4. I want to know what is the benefit of jailbreaking versus the standard. If I jailbreak what is this Winterboard you all are talking about, and what is Cydia?
    Is there a Post on the forum that gives me the rundown of what is what with jailbreaking? I appreciate every comment and assistance that you all give me...

    I will try to explain, please keep in mind Im new at the iPhone gig. Cydia is an open developer site where independant developers contribute themes, apps, etc. It is not associated with iTunes. Winterboard allows you to choose and install what themes, lockscreens, etc you have downloaded from cydia. I had cydia on my 3G and now have it on my i4, working really well.

    Beeshabo, were you connected to wifi when you did the DL? It takes a while for this JB to "settle" in. Sometimes the cydia homepage takes a few tries to load, but the "sections" part where the themes are will load right up, and the selected themes you want will DL from there no problem.

    chokem - Yeah, it works now.....it was just sluggish I guess, so when trying to download Winterboard, it timed out, thus crashing (and restarting) on me. Thanks!!

    Do you get the little colorful pixels up top (by the status bar) when restarting or respringing? I do, they go away once the phone is booted, no biggie, just curious

    Lol, thanks! It's all good now....Cydia seems to be loading faster, was able to install Winterboard (and a theme), working GREAT! That's all I wanted, that, plus Statusbar notifications and Safari Downloader

    Thank you for explaining it to me.. I might hold off on doing it, unless I can tether my iPhone with my Macbook Pro when I'm on the road for my job?? Is that possible too?
