there aren't many apps right now, but you're not going to lose any functionality either... so i say go for it.

if are a good learner and are good a researching different functions of the iPhone. It is a big plus. Like mentioned there aren't that many apps but new ones seem to be popping up almost every day and supposedly in about a week installer will be available. But there are a lot of things you can do to set yourself apart from everyone else with cydia. Using OpenSSH will help and there are a lot of youtube videos on it and what part does what.
I currently have changed my icons, sounds, dock, dialer, 3g icons, changed my carrier name to my name, my charging logos, and sliders. and find new stuff everyday. And I am a total noob when it comes to the iPhone but thanks to this site and just researching I have figured out a lot. So do it. And if you need help jailbreaking just let me know I will be glad to help you

I would wait till the bugs (if any) are worked out, and new apps are developed. I want to J/B too, but I'ma wait.

Wait until Apple releases an update first.

All I want to do is change the background on the phone (not the locked screen image)....can you do that with the jailbreak? I like the icons as they are....I just want a pretty pic instead of black in the background!

yes, you can change that if you jailbreak.

Wait another week for Installer version 4.0 to come out. The layout is BEAUTIFUL and it blows Cydia away. Installer rules.

what's the point in waiting? When installer comes out, you can install it then.

Apple will most likely release a new firmware update very soon so the DevTeam will have to work on another jailbreak (won't probably require too much work). This plus the fact there is virtually no app available makes it very easy for me to make a decision of NOT jailbreaking yet.

Apple has historically gone months between iPhone updates... no reason to think that's going to change. And if there is an update it won't be for the sole purpose of making the dev team re-crack the software.

iPwning takes MAYBE 10 minutes, so again i say there's no reason not to do it.

You can tether your laptop to 3g with 3proxy. Nes emulator, terminal, bossprefs, unlock all monkeyball levels with openssh, html bookreader, and bosstool.

I like it so far. Openssh and the tethering are great.

I have many themes and wallpapers that I can change now in a matter of seconds. I would loose the ability to do that if I upgraded and jailbroke now. I don't need Installer, but I do need SummerBoard. I'll wait.

oh, i see. i was looking at it with the point of view that the person had already upgraded to 2.0, or has a 3g iPhone.
