    What do you wanna know? For me, it's the vast majority of homebrew apps available on Cydia that enable those little features that really should be enabled by default.

    Does it still work with exchange, apps store, iTunes. What about old apps I already have?
    Backups within iTunes?

    Yes to all of these. No issues for me so far.

    Is SSH turned installed by default or do you have to install it yourself?

    Benifits: Pay nothing for apps that cost £££. Able to do a lot more with your phone.
    Disadvantages: When I find one I will let you know!

    It's turned on by default.

    I used to run my iPhone jailbroken but I found it was much slower at responding e.g. laggy keyboard, slow to load apps etc.

    Mine was fine. Just to make sure i am 100% PwnageTool installs SSH and enables it by default.

    I am currently in Australia have no access to WIFI or 3G. Would you know a way on how to change the SSH password under these conditions? As far as i am aware you need to download mobile terminal and do it in there.

    I use mac as my OS is there a way to do it down the USB cable?

    Cheers

    By slowing down I should have stated over time it got worse.

    I don't have a Mac (yet) so don't know how to do it any other way.

    i seem to remember installing ssh from cydia but i could be wrong. and yes i also downloaded mobile terminal to change the root password of the device. as far as i know there is no way to do this via usb.

    as for reports of the phone slowing down, yes mine did too, but no worse than a lot of people i know who didn't jailbreak, some of apple's updates were the culprit from what i could tell, the latest one works fine for the most part.

    .
    True(ish)

    I don't know of a way to change the root password via USB, but I did mine by SSH'ing into the device over Wifi. Seemed much easier than typing all of the commands in the strange mobile version of terminal!
