What are some of the features of jailbreaking?

What can be done with a jailbreaked iPhone? Not interested in stealing games :p more wondering about customisation etc

Basically all the stuff you can do on an Android device without voiding the warranty ;).

You can theme/skin every element of the iOS UI - up to icon size and position, swipe gestures (swipe lft/right to switch between apps, up to close etc)...
You can add features to built-in apps (email client, music player, appstore etc etc); you can add faux mass storage mode - so that you can connect your phone to computers and exchange files without iTunes... You can add widgets to the homescreen, lockscreen and the notification centreetc etc...

There's little you can't do... (And disregard matt's comment :p Android didn't invent any of that - they stole modding and custom ROMs from winmo and Symbian - but hey, bless the ignorance of a teen fanboy :D. )

How many people still have WinMo and Symbian devices? I think Android is a more relevant comparison in today's world. Also, did I ever say Android was the 1st customisable OS ;)?

Nah, OP - I was just teasing my fellow-mod. I love Android, the first, last and only :D
