    Alright, I searched for about 15 pages for a good bundle-list of must-have Cydia apps. I haven't jailbroken in about two years so Im far out of date but I vaguely remember winterboard, springboard, various homescreen apps, etc. What are your must-haves?

    Doesn't Switchermod require Backgrounder? And Action Menu is the Cat's Meow ( my new best friend). Hope it works soon. Finally got 3gs JB on 4.3.1. iPad next and then - maybe - iPhone 4!

    Alright this ap is awesome! Try setting it to 1/10 and playing the inception themesong in the background--epic novelty!

    I use OpenSSH, VoiceActivator, MyWi, SBSettings, and FakeClockUp.
    However, my phone is SLOW after jailbreaking, even with fakeclockup, it's still almost painfully slow. I'm going to give it 24 hours. If it still feels too slow, I'm going back to stock.

    Yeah something's not right there, Hawk. My phone is fast as ever with less stuttering on the multitask bar and opening folders compared to 4.2.1.

    Same here. No lag noted after jailbreaking with redsn0w.

    What are your favorite UI downloads? Such as the homescreen weather ap, and invisible icon thingy, etc...

    I shy away from Winterboard tweaks, personally. I like Barrel and Parallax... combined they make a nice effect. I also use CleanStatus to remove carrier and other unnecessary items from my status bar. 5 Icon Springboard and Dock with Shrink (which isn't working right now with 4.3.1) is also a great combo.

    Having some issues with VoiceActivator, unless I'm just not using it correctly. It beeps twice as though its working, but just goes back to the home screen.

    What about Weather Icon? I like having the weather on my status board.

    This is from user iPhonewarrior, but I LOVE his layout! Anyone know what mods he's using other than the obvious (iblank, suave HD and iBlank)?

    in the process of restoring my Phone. There was definitely something wrong. It was just way too slow compared to stock 4.3.1

    Weather Icon is working fine (and so is the Wetter Icon theme).

    Awesome, thanks for the heads up! So much better than iBlank! Now I wish Suave HD didn't remove the shadow from icons!
