It seems that quite a few developers are busy converting, re-writing and tweaking apps to work on firmware 2.0. Even though we are still waiting for Installer to be ported to 2.0, Cydia is available and continues to have applications added. We know that the developer of some of our favorite apps (moleskine, TimeCapsule, WildEyes…) is working hard on getting the apps ported over to 2.0. BigBoss is also working hard on getting his apps ported to 2.0, below is what he has to say about a few of the apps that have been ported so far.
BossPrefs v2.0.2a (alpha). This is the first working version for 2.0 devices. There will be some issues but the major stuff should work. The airplane / phone toggles are not implemented, the add plugin GUI is not implemented, and there may be some other minor issues. I think double tap home needs some work. The bulk of it works. I put it out immediately because there was no other way to toggle SSH. Wil update it again very soon.
Poof is your app hider. This is also integrated into BossPrefs but, well, Poof was out a couple days earlier. For those that want to hide apps without BossPrefs, this is your app.
NES Emulator ported by Nervegas. This was the first app in our 2.0 Cydia repository. Enjoy your old NES games!!
The respring app is ported to 2.0. I used this during my development of poof and BossPrefs to reset the springboard. However, this functionality is now integrated into BossPrefs in the Power button so you can decide if you want it.
There are several flashlight apps in appstore right now. However they all suck because Apple would not allow the developers to make the screen brighter. I use the flashlight app, so I wrote this one. It properly brightens the screen when you load it. It also strobes when you tap it.
Gojonnyboy made a nice reboot/respring/power off app called Power Tool. It existed for 1.1.4 and now has been ported to 2.0.
Metronome has been released. It’s a full featured metronome app made with the SDK but in Cydia for free. Very nice! (Sorry, the icon seems to only be viewable on iPhone).
