Any iPhone jailbreakers on here?

I love my jailbroken iPhone, I cant imagine not having it this way, but everyone I talk to with an iPhone acts like jailbreaking is the work of the devil. This is why none of the other phones seem attractive to me, a jailbroken iPhone does freakin everything. I am currently on a 3gS jailbroken with purplera1n, running Cydia and Installous for apps plus a ton of other utilities.

Whats everyone's setup and favorite Cydia apps?

Never jailbroke mine, and too lazy to go read on what you can do with a jailbroken phone.

I was reluctant to jailbreak my iPhone at first but I can't imagine having a regular iPhone now.

jailbroke mine and I guess I havent found any apps that I cant live without because the only thing I use that I got by jailbreaking it is winterboard, allowing me to use a backgroup picture behind my icons. Other than that, I just use regular apps.

Before 3.0 I did use PDAnet to tether my laptop but now I unlocked the official tethering program and it does a far better job than PDAnet ever did.

Here is a list of my must have jailbroken iPhone app's for v3.

Installous by Appulous allows you to download any "real" iTunes Appstore app for free, and they are legit, they have thousands.

GV Mobile (which recently got yanked from the appstore) is only good for JB'd phones.

Categories lets you make folders so you dont have apps all over.

FiveRowDock lets you have 5 icons in the dock.

Five-Column SB lets you have 5x5 grid of apps.

MIM lets you replace AT&T with whatever you want.

APTBackup lets you back up your Cydia apps.

MPlayer lets you play unconverted .wmv .avi etc. files

OpenSSH lets you have file access to your iPhone to edit/add/remove files.

CyDelete makes it easy to delete Cydia apps.

SBSettings - Allows easy access to turn on and off 3g, Edge, Wifi, SSH, Reload Springboard, shut down, etc.

iMobileCinema - Allows you to play some (not all) flash within Safari

Stack - Allows your last docked app to be a stack of apps that pops out so you can have multiple things in it.

MxTube - Allows you to download Youtube videos for later playback.

Reminder - Allows you to see if you have email, voicemail, missed calls, ect. on your locked screen.

xGPS - Free turn by turn spoken GPS

dTunes - allows you to download and play music/torrents through your iPhone

Backgrounder - allows you to run applications in the background, for example, if you like to listen to Pandora radio you know that you cant have anything else open while listening. With this application you can open Pandora, then minimize it while it is still running in the background and then open another application while still listening to Pandora.

Winterboard - allows full customization of the GUI and allows you to download pre-made themes to your iPhone from Cydia (I currently use Glasklart).

Emulators - I have the psx4iphone and they have NES and Gameboy Advance, I am still tweakin mine to get Grand Turismo 2 to work properly, but it loads, just lagging right now.

Mines not jailbroke but Ive had one done before, got old redoing it after updates. But I also liked the pics and different looking icons on the stringboard stuff... or whatever it was..

TETHERING is kick ass. got mine hooked up a few weeks ago and I love it...

Those sound like good ones there. Why do I get the feeling that if I somehow try to unlock my phone I will break it and can't repair it? The fear of something new? Can you repair it?
