    Cydia- list of what not to install.[Only for complete iPad newbies]

    [Only for faint hearted people and total newbies to apple iPad and jailbreaks]
    Hello there.

    I was wondering if we could list here apps or things that we shouldn't install after the jail breaking to keep our ipads safe from being screwedup. Some expert people please give your hands of help here.

    Could be really useful for us simple people. :)

    Thanks

    1.The one thing to not install is that app that allows you to sync over Wifi. Complete garbage as every time it is installed my iPad needs to be restored.

    All apps on Cydia are often great apps to what Is made for If you know what It does and how to handle It.

    Not the best answer, but still, It's my answer

    Backgrounder fails sometimes and closes everything.

    Well if you can't handle Backgrounder don't even bother jailbreaking. That was my number two reason for jailbreaking, right behind SBSettings.

    Backgrounder IS inconsistent. That inconsistency was *my* main reason for trying out the 4.2 beta 3. Drives me nuts how sometimes Backgrounder works and sometimes it doesn't and just closes the app out. But I also don't like how Apple leaves mail, Safari and iPod/video running in the background using resources. With a JB'n device I can use Circuitous's override option to disable that.

    I think you misunderstand what backgrounder does. Essentially NOTHING. If something crashes it is not due to backgrounder, it is due to iOS or the app.

    All backgrounder does is fool the OS into letting an app run in the backgrounder. And the OS has had that capability since day-one when the iPhone was released in 2007.

    That doesn't mean backgrounder can suddenly add the RAM needed if someone tries to run 12 apps at the same time. It cannot. So if you are trying to do too much, the OS will have to start pulling the plug on apps. But all backgrounder did was tell the OS to let the app run in the background. As the RAM gets critical the OS can and will terminate an app if it needs memory for something else. But again it is the OS doing it not backgrounder.

    I have no problems with backgrounder, but I use it very judiciously at least on my iPad. I have more leeway on my iPhone 4.

    That's great you've never had a problem with it. Obviously me and the other poster have had. Just stating experiences. For the record I've *never* backgrounded more than 2 apps at a time. Drives me nuts to have resources being used for no reason. I'm not foolish enough to try to run 12 apps in the background without something crashing. Perhaps it *is the particular app causing it (iCab comes to mind). I don't know, I just stated that I agreed it's inconsistent.
