I have said several times that I don't really need to jailbreak any longer, but now that I have, and now that I've paid for a few things, I'll probably do the same as you and stay on 6.1.2 as long as necessary.

It's working fine, and once you get used to Accelerate an iPhone seems slow.

Both are significant enough quality of life issues for me that I refuse to buy another Apple phone unless there's an untethered jailbreak for it.

You are so colossally full of shіt.

This isn't a dichotomy between ZOMGPIRACY and "Things Apple hasn't thought of yet".

Are you really saying Apple hasn't thought of putting WiFI/3G toggles in the notification center, or allowing apps to change copy-paste functionality?

I jailbreak not because I want things Apple hasn't included "yet", I jailbreak because I want things Apple categorically refuses to support them.

You know what? Screw you, and screw Apple. I've slowly come to realize the only thing I've ever liked about Apple was Jony Ive's hardware design. The Jobs/Forstall/Cue philosophy on forcing opaque, designed-for-dummies software down our throats has always been garbage of the highest order.

This is a company who refused to introduce right-clicking for decades, out of spite, and even when absolutely forced to by customer demand, they couldn't make a functional device, but instead made the most ridiculously over-engineered piece of crap ever, the Mighty Mouse, which require you to LIFT your index finger so the device wouldn't have two physical buttons.

The straw that's breaking this camel's back is the fact that this company attracts fanboys like yourself and iGrip, who are by Louis CK's terminology, truly fаggots of the highest order. Your willful myopia and cult-like defense of OBVIOUSLY bad moves by Apple makes me physically ill.

(yes, I'm fishing for a ban, thanks for asking!)

Let me rephrase that:

- Jailbreakers whine ad nauseam while strenuously avoiding the update

There. I think the revised wording more accurately reflects reality, no?

If you're not jailbreaking to save money by stealing apps, music, video, etc.
then you're jailbreaking for some other (irrational, emotional) reason.
Hence the whining and lashing out. Pitiful, really.

I'd normally think the moderators should be called in for the thing that guy said in the post, but I kind of agree with the guy about so-called fanboys because of replies like yours.

But even if there were an untethered jailbreak available, wouldn't Apple just screw it up with their next iOS update?

WiFi doesn't work very well for me any more, there's really no longer any need for My3G, and if necessary the combination of DND and Youmail can eliminate the need for iBlacklist.

iBlacklist + Youmail is marginally better than doing without it, but not by much.

I've never been into Winterboard stuff, fancy themes and things. I can see how you'd still want to champion jailbreaking if you want to do that.

"Accelerate" is kind of neat if you don't push it too far. :-)

Really can't speak for anyone else but I jailbreak because I am a font snob. If Apple gave me the ability to change fonts I wouldn't JB.
So, do you think that will be in IOS7? Me, neither. So i guess i'll continue to JB.

Glad to hear that someone out there is JB-ing for the aesthetic value.
And yeah, I doubt Apple will let you mess with the system font. Ever.
I expect it to be Helvetica ad nauseam.
