    I have been keeping well up-to-date with this. Mine hasn't been very buggy at all (on Iphone 4g 4.0.1FW). I can't believe how smooth the JB has gone.
    Installous is working quicker than ever, as is Cydia. I even installed Flash using WinSCP so I could browse flash websites.
    The Iphone 4 finally feels complete! Very happy.
    Now just waiting for decent full HD themes.

    apparently it does it by using a specially formatted pdf file - there is a vulnerability in iOS that allows the pdf to execute code and gives complete control over the device.
    Ironically, the only fix is to jailbreak!
    BBC News - iPhone at risk from security flaw
    "In an ironic twist, the only way of preventing Mobile Safari from automatically opening PDF files is by jailbreaking a phone and installing an application, called PDF Loading Warner, that then asks for permission every time the browser tries to open a PDF file."

    "snaptap" on cydia. This app turns the volume button into a camera shutter button so you don't get shaky pics anymore. I am tempted to jailbreak just for this app. Oh that and "sbsettings"
