Here are some favored apps as they are reported to or by us, (many require additional 'sources' to be added the the Installer program.)
(Please Note: 'BSD Subsystem' (UNIX code - available through the Installer**) is required by most third party apps.)
[ZiPhone 3.0 now installs the subsystem code by default.]
This is informational, install these programs through the Installer.app. (You may need to add more sources to see these appear.)
BossPrefs - Fix Dir permissions, toggle SSH / Edge / WiFi / Bluetooth / Phone / Airplane / AFP modes on and off. (configurable.)
Also fixes DIR permissions, uses a 'dock' to conceal (or group) other apps, shows avail 'disk' space, and allows running from the home button.
BossTool - Move fonts, ringtones, third party apps to larger memory partition, it can also 'wipe' your device, if desired. (Screenshots here.)
Categories - Group icons into folders. (Available through the "Community Sources" that come with Installer) (Screenshots here.)
Customize 2.0 - Manage and backup themes, change sounds, and system text strings. (Screenshots / walkthrough)
Note: Customize dropped the option to add extra icons to the dock. (Apple changed the file structure on 1.1.3 and above.)
