Redsn0w 0.9.7b6 now available for consumption. People still jailbreak?

The sixth major beta release of redsn0w 0.9.7 is available and brings with it patches that cleanup some problems with Skype as well as a few other bugs. The patch is only available for the Mac, but a windows patch is forthcoming.

The redsn0w project aims to bring unthethered jailbreak access to the iPhone, instead of having to rely on a computer, and physically tether your iPhone to the device once the phone has been initially jailbroken. It’s pretty annoying having to tether your phone to a computer every single time you want to reboot it.

So out of curiosity, how many of you continue to jailbreak your iPhone? At this point I’ve given up on it, but there must be some pretty strong reasons for continuing to deal with the hassle. What’s the number one reason you jailbreak?
