I think the custom ringtone hack is pretty safe if you follow the instructions specifically. If you're not good at reading instructions, then I wouldn't advise it.I wish they would hurry too but they don't wanna mess stuff up and have our phones even worse and we complain even more. besides they wont release an update that will say update at your own risk lol unlike the ringtone deal it could leave you with a dead iPhone.
Its just POC (proof of concept) Showing it can be done. Now its up to others to do all sorts of neat things with it. Like we are doing with the carrier logo change etc.fThat's pretty cool, but I think I'll keep my colors. =]
People can already change around the icons, I saw it on another forum. I didn't do it because I don't really care where my apps are right now. They are fine where they are at.Well that's just a start. What it means is that people will be changing the icons and eventually the choices of icons on the home screen.
