Everytime i get out of the jailbreaking world due to warranty I don't research it till I can do it again, so I have to go back and look up the repos I had. I know I ran DREAMBOARD that I could make multiple home screens(android, windows,etc etc etc... ) Can't wait to get back on a JB iphone, mostly just so I can get into my root files and drag and drop pics to my computer via usb.

Here are some other examples. Going to look great on the bigger 5 screen:

Most of those themes look like complete sh1t. Sorry.

The standard theme is already pretty nice. I just wish that iOS had the option for live wallpapers like android does.

AGREE!! I only used the LAST one I posted. I like to keep it simple.

Those ones that look "like sh1t" were the stock options for android and google or whatever at the time sooo... Yea I agree, they are crap lol

I'm hoping someone creates a lumina-like homescreen, I really like that look.

I like the lockscreen, not too much on the homescreen. Looks nice though, and making the iphone look like android was just to show android people we can have the same thing. I'd never want my iPhone to look like an android lol

Also, I guess you just don't care about your warranty?

lockscreen is called subtlelock

the homescreen is done with springtomize 2. i basically just removed the reflection, dock, labels, and made the icons smaller. really simple.

First off, hell no I don't pay for protection plans. I run a iPhone repair business so I repair my own screens, software issues are different... You do know they come with a year warranty without paying for that right?

ANYWAY...

You have another thing coming if you think they can't tell you jailbroke it, it depends on the "genius " you get, but some of them can dig through and see you have, which voids the warranty. Trust me, I've seen this happen many times. Honestly, I'd rather not risk it, it's only for a year and I'd rather not run into any issues if I have to take it back to Apple.

well i did replace my phone when i dropped it directly on the power button, genius bar didnt even question me a thing. they didnt even ask if i dropped my phone let alone if i jailbroke it. they just replaced it.

so to answer your question, i never worried about "voiding" my warranty.

I've had my htc one for a little under a month now...got it a few days after launch. I really like it so far. I was with iphone since iphone 1 so the switch from ios to android hasn't been super seamless, but I'm learning!

I actually really like the camera. Its pretty darn good in low light.

Not worse, just not as good? I'm still getting used to it.
I only say this, cause when there isnt sufficient lighting the camera gets a little but choppy.

You will not get any second glances from Apple fanboys, only Android fans, but what's new?

Beats are overpriced GARBAGE.

The 1 does look really nice, I just can't get away from the iOS simplicity... Mabye I'm just a simple man
Beats is just a finely tuned equalizer. Maybe some minor hardware, but that's really all it is. My HTC 8x has it. It's nice, but really not remotely close to a deal-breaker on a phone. It makes music seem a bit more rich, kinda like the audio button on our E46s. Try turning it off and then back next time you drive, it makes a difference.

Also, as a side note, I still concede that the audio button is the most useless button in our cars.

As a side note to your side note because have I have no shame in taking an already redundant off topic thread more off topic...

My two heated seats buttons, HK sound button, audio/phone buttons, and fog light button all do nothing cause I have recaros, an aftermarket head unit, and brake ducts instead of fogs.
