Is this sucking the juice out of anyone else's battery on their 3g S? Ever since I installed this jailbreak it has sucked the juice out of my battery, even if i'm not touching it and it's just sitting there. Does anyone know how to fix this issue...any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The jailbreak works well in windows XP but in Vista ultimate 64 it stops at running and is stuck in restore

To be quite honest, I really can understand why Dev-Team decided not to release their's, but also I see why Geohotz decided to release his. Well I did have a bit of a headache brewing when jailbreaking with this. BUT, to be quite honest, just knowing that my phone is no longer bound by apple limitation that it was a few ago, makes me actually feel better. I have been testing all of the apps that I used to use on my 3g on 2.2.1. and they work. Except for winterboard. But to be quite honest, for me, winterboard was just a huge headache. Themes upon themes that are awesome come out and I want them all. So screw that for now, it just causes me to take up space on the system. Cracked IPAs work almost flawlessly. Actually, they do. The only one I had problems with was the actually IPA installer. Not the IPAs. They still sink to itunes. Works great. Overall this jailbreak means different things to different people. And to keep the 'honesty' and respectiveness in the jailbreaking world, I don't think that anyone that is thanking GeoHotz while bashing the Dev-Team and vis a vis, Should. We are all thankful to all of them, and we very much so should be because we damn sure weren't going to sit down for 20hrs out of the day just to find these possibilities. Each side has their purpose for what they are doing, let them do it in peace and be thankful for when we do get the jailbreaks. And besides, THIS IS BETA!!!! Hint Hint! Testing! The ones using it are testing it, so lay off the bashin'. We are lucky they don't want to make us pay for their hard ass work. Thanks to both the Dev-Team for their continued intellectual in making my phone FUN, which all of them should be. And thanks to GeoHotz for letting me be able to see a glimpse of what this new hardware can do.
