    If you have tried to download full force from Cydia it will give you some kind of wildcat error. I used file to add wildcat to springboard's k4ap plist and it KILLED my iPad. It wouldn't boot. Springboard crashed and it just sat there for 30 minutes mocking me with the greenpoison fancy boot logo. DO NOT DO THE WILDCAT HACK!!!! I had to do a restore with iTunes. :(

    gsc.wildcat a flag/register that tells iOS 4.0 an later devices how to handle opengles-2 graphics

    On an iPhone 3G/s it’s disabled an this sets the Power VR chipset to do fullscreen antialiasing with a lower texture resolution

    On an iPad an iPhone 4 it’s enabled an this disables the fullscreen antialiasing an sharpens textures for the higher res displays.

    If u enable it on a 3G it does nothing as the Power VR chipset only supports opengles-1 an wildcat is a opengles-2 extension

    If u enable it on a 3Gs it makes the textures look sharper on some games but does real bad mip mapping in the distance an also disables full screen antialiasing.

    If u disable it on an iPad or iPhone 4 it does the opposite it adds fullscreen antialiasing bit lowers texture sharpness.
