Frustation with a non-jailbreak iPhone

I upgraded my iPhone 3GS to iOS 4.2.1 following the day it was released last week. In my previous post, I mentioned how I jailbroke the iPhone 3GS and what my opinion was about the whole jailbreak process. During the few months of using the jailbroken iPhone, I found the whole experience lot positive than expected, contrary to what I wrote in my last post. Most importantly, Cydia worked seamlessly without a hitch. I also found a few apps that weren't on the native iPhone Appstore that were very good. One of them is TVOut. TVOut is an app that allows anything on the iPhone to be displayed onto a TV screen via a component cable. It just needn't be the videos on Youtube or the photographs/videos on your iPhone.

I personally feel  TVOut app needs to make its way onto the Appstore. Period. I don't mind if it is a paid app. I would gladly pay to use it. TVOut gave me the freedom to connect my iPhone to a TV and watch the output from apps like TVU player, Skyfire and MXTube to name a few.

With the upgrade to iOS 4.2.1, I lost the jailbreak apps and with it the option to connect the iPhone to a TV. It is one of those frustations I need to endure with a non-jailbreak iPhone.
