    Are the improvements in 7.1 substantial enough for you to make the switch? I don't really see anything new except its improved stability but if you really don't have any problems is it worth losing your jailbreak? I know this is totally subjective but I just want to hear your opinions.

    Personally, no- not for me.
    I don't have many tweaks on my iPhone, but the ones I do, I wish not to give up.

    Will hold out for a (possible) 7.1 jailbreak.
    I didn't do this with iOS6 and didn't have a jailbreak for quite awhile. I missed the experience too much to go without again.

    (I wish you had created a poll. The results might be interesting. Although I suppose a poll here inquiring vs a poll on the iPhone forum would be quite different.)

    As of right now, no. I can see down the road maybe. I'm sure to loose it when I get my iPhone 6 though. It will be worth it for a bigger screen.

    Fisher Price and Playskool inspired iOS 7.0 was not worth losing my iOS 6.1 jailbreak over, so to bluntly answer the question about 7.1 - no.

    You do know with proper WinterBoard themes and a few tweaks you can have 6.1 on steroids with a 7.0.4 jailbreak.

    To OP, I wil keep my JB over 7.1:)

    Yeah…but I'm lazy. My iPhone has been set up pretty much exactly the way I want it since the middle of 2013. My contract is up in September 2014 and I'll be getting the iPhone 6. So, between now and then I don't particularly care to engage in rearranging things again to suit me just to get it all set and ready by the time I get my new iPhone.

    Since I have everything that iOS 7 has via either app or jailbreak tweak I'm content to just enjoy what I have until then. Once the iPhone 6 gets here I'll be doing this all over again then too, so I'd rather just wait.

    By Fisher Price and Playschool I assume you're talking about the Android interface, which sucks much balls?

    No…that would be Graco or Gerber inspired. Hmm…maybe Playtex inspired.

    Coincidentally I was asking thinking about creating one, but I don't know how to. If you know how, you can let me know and I'll do it. Yea I guess it doesn't matter too much to me because I'm getting the iPhone 6 but I was just curious about other opinions.

    iPhone or iPad ? there is way too many tweaks for iPhone and just a few for iPad I think is worth losing jailbreak on the iPad if you get better stability but not on the iPhone since it makes the whole experience way better

    Until its released and the official release notes are added i'll hold my judgement.

    However if its only stability and Uk Siri voice changes..... then nope.

    Hell no. No way I'm losing my JB for a stock 7.1 with barely anything different than a few bug fixes.

    But it will not return the iOS6.1 Dialer.

    I don't jailbreak myself but I always keep my phone on a jailbreakable firmware to make selling it much easier.

    Only way I would update to 7.1 is if there was a way to jailbreak it. So probably not.
