I have reviewed Jailbreak with Greenposi0n. I do have a question …after you install Cydia. What are you suppose to do?? This point seems to be missing in alot of the videos. Would you do a video on after the Cydia install? Thanks

Cydia is a package installer that is used to install 3rd party applications and tweaks. Once you have Cydia you are free to roam and download things to improve your device and make it a better expierence for you.

I am unable to do videos at the moment. But I do have a couple of videos on Apps to take a look at? (not the obvious ones like winterboard n' stuff) So if you are a first-time jailbreaker I can make a written list;

Winterboard; For themes (free) SBSettings; popular toggles accessed by swiping your status bar! (free) Activator; Open apps, do system actions and more with gestures! (free) VoiceActivator; custom Voice Control commands! (I don't remember the cost, but not free) BootLogo; Install custom bootlogos if jailbroken with greenpois0n.

Want more?

^ I hope I'm allowed to do this.

You sure are allowed. The more video guides and images posted in answers the better. As long as you're not spamming (e.g. "SUBSCRIBE ON YOUTUBE!!!11 LOLZ") it's fine with me. =)
