iwhat, I appreciate what you are trying to do, but this thread is pretty dangerous if not kept accurate, up to date, and to some degree administered.
I totally appreciate that other peoples mileage varies, BUT, both wifi sync and backgrounder work perfectly well for me. Dare I say flawlessly.
I am an experienced user and know what I am doing. I don't know if that puts me in the minority or majority...
BUT, this thread should list apps where there are fundamental compatibility issues, NOT where a user here or there has a problem with absolutely no evidence as to whether it is the user, device, or application that is at fault...
If I took the accuracy of this at face value I would avoid two of the best reasons for me to have my iPad jailbroken, and I see no evidence that either of these products is at fault...
I tried to explain that it is not backgrounder. Blaming backgrounder is like blaming the key to the liquor cabinet for getting drunk and sick. :)
Okay,I have limited this thread to simple non techie and total newbies only. I also stated in my first post that it's for "Simple people". So by that I meant it's not for those experts and super techies and people who know what they really are doing. Cydia is an extremely powerful hub for extremely powerful apps but often newbies try to go ahead and install stuff,but unlike expert people they often fail to resolve simple issues so I am just trying to help here,I am listing apps which might be giving some basic troubles which might be easy to solve but to newbies it can be a real pain. I was really curious to jailbreak but at later stage I have willfully restore my iPad to jailed state,don't get me wrong but i don't think any expert people would restore from jailbreak because they know how to maintain it properly and avoid and block the risks or threats that come with it. And about maintenance when I will be no longer available to update,I will request a mod to remove this thread all together.
Now if you will really inform about some potential harmful apps rather than echoing the greatness and good behavior of backgrouder and wifi app then I could replace those two,so please try to help.
I hope you understand.
The problem is the title of this thread makes it sound as if it is more official or technical than what it is. If it was for beginners or noobs it would have been better to include that in title.
There are apps that should be avoided in Cydia, usually due to conflicting with another app , outdated, not ready for current firmware, etc... But to include backgrounder in such a list to me makes the list more misleading than useful.
Well, yes and no. I'm not sure I do understand how to help effectively in the context of this thread, so I think I'll just bow out.

I wish you good luck with the thread though.
I don't think that this thread is "dangerous" or could be. iWhat is not stating that this thread is do or die ~
He just wants opinions and experiences. Besides, whomever reads these threads, performs whatever is stated in them, or not, they do so at their own risk.
Which are these great apps? Please list the conflicting combination,can be of great use :)

-winterboard n themes, great for customization of the user interface and sounds, my ipad looks and sounds nothing like stock. U would think my ipad is a robot when it talks. I used the chris something robotic voice add on. Cool as hell.
-SB Settings- like Tinman said, this is a great hidden menu. Just swile the top left of screen and a customizable menu pops up. Really handy plus opens up in just about any app.
-Unlimited Videos, allows u to download latest movies directly into ipad. Has built in downloader, plus watch movies straight from there or u can stream the movies, or just move the file to whever u want it usingggggg..
-Ifile, possibly the greatest and most powerful tool u can have on ur ipad. Its basically a full blown file explorer. Look deep inside the ipad files and folders. Cut, copy, paste, move files to wherever u want. With this, u dont need itunes for transfers of movies, music, pix, or whatever. Can be risky if u go messing around with system files and dont know what u doing. But for most stuff, it wrks great.
-Circuitous, goes great with backgrounder. Its like a task manager and allows u to switch thru different apps u have open or close them. Plus u can free up ram there also. Beware though if u try to free up too much ram ipad will reboot..lol or does for me at least. No apps running the most free around 130-140 mb
-adownloader, another movie downloader, free of course. ;-)
-mxtube, download youtube vids straight into ipad and watch anytime.
-dtunes, supposedly underground itunes type app. I havent used this much yet or really figured it out.lol
-Various Emulators such as Genesis AD, SNES AD, gps or the gameboyadvane one, NES, and i have the PSX one but havnt quite got that one wrkin yet. It dowesnt have the builtin downloader so u have to use ifiles to put file in the appropriate folder. Psx files arent as easy as the others. Ill figure it out soon.
-BT Stack, allows u to use bt mouse n more.
-ipodmovieinfo app...more free movies downloads n more.
Im sure i have more i cant think of or probaly system tweaks.
So thats what i have in my ipad at the moment running with no problems.:D
