Jailbroken again, yeah!

Last night ran a jailbreak on my iPhone 4. I had expected to wait a few months before being able to do this. Anyway, this was the easiest jailbreak I've run so far - simply pointing the Safari browser on the iPhone to a website and sliding a button (nice touch that!). The jailbreak had been out for several days, so I had no problem getting onto the website, and there was enough info about what to expect, and the jailbreak tools had been updated. The first thing I downloaded was SBSettings - that had been the thing I'd missed the most on my iPhone 4. It makes it so quick to toggle Wi-Fi on or off, and also shutting down my iPhone at night is a swipe and two taps - no pressing down a hardware button then swiping. Okay, now the downside. My iPhone was taking about 35 seconds to boot up (From turned off to the login screen). Now it takes about 55 seconds. Apart from Cydia and SBSettings, the only other Jailbroken Apps I've installed are Rock (because I have a few Apps licensed from them) and My3G, which I'm not sure is even working properly. Oh well, the slower boot time is a small price to pay for the freedom of having a jailbroken iPhone again.
