With the iPhone i5 jailbreak necessary?

Ok so I've jailbroken ever single iPhone I've owned up until the 5. Besides from cosmetic differences is there any reason to jailbreak now? I do miss MyWi but besides that I feel that the combination of hardware and software is more than sufficient now.

Woops, can't believe I forgot the emulators too. Loved getting to play Pokemon without having to whip out my DS.

Stock iOS is dull and lacking.

If you truly did JB all your other phones and used the JBs to their fullest ability, you wouldn't be asking this question.

A bit off topic, but are these Pokemon games something a 15 year old (like my son) should still be into? I mean, I always thought those were for younger kids.

I'm not exactly up on the topic...haven't really played video games since the mid 80s.

I think you might be overestimating the age of many who post on this forum.

Thats true i didnt do much with my jailbroken iphones. sbssettings for the toggles mywi and fullscreen safari was what i used mostly and most of these are not built in. Im sure once a jailbreak comes out i'll jailbreak again but I hated waiting to update

If Apple spent just a fraction of the time they do blocking jailbreaks and put it into implementing some of the popular jailbreak features, iOS would be a lot further along now.

Then people would whine saying Apple stole their idea. Look at WiFi Sync (nor say the creator whined)

I'm waiting for Tether Me among other Cydia applications. Also agree that Apple blocking JB's is a big waste of time and effort, there will always be a way to break the IOS

We can't answer that for you. For me, none of the tweaks I use are incorporated in IOS6 so there are plenty of reasons for me to JB IOS 6. It's a subjective matter. If you want feedback then you'll need to be very clear on what you've been using.

Seems like you answered your own question then.

Pokémon has this nostalgia attached to it, and I used to love it when I was younger. I don't have a Nintendo DS or game much at all really anymore, but it's fun to casually play on my iPhone once in a while. I'm 20 years old so I guess I'm not too old to still enjoy it aha.

People say they go with a cheaply made android because of the freedom.

So why not get the best designed hardware around AND the freedom of doing what you want?
