Just got a 6 and it's been like two days.. am I crazy for not jailbreaking it? I jailbroke my 5S and I have an iPod Touch that's jailbroken, and judge all you want but I kinda like using stock for a bit.. it's a nice change. But I'm sure I'm going to want to JB again come 8.2. LOL

If you find nothing you want different, then there is no need to jailbreak.

I was very content on iOS6, so I didn't jailbreak. But I can't stand the stock icons on this new iOS, themes are a must for me not to hate my phone :p So its not crazy if you're liking what you see.

I see no issue with wanting to sample stock iOS again.

I've jail broken my past iPhones too and have just Jb my iP6+ a couple of weeks ago ,after running it as stock for a couple of months.

Unfortunately after using a Jb iPhone and realising how powerful this handset is and then using it sandboxed feels restricted.

What is the best way to clear up space on a non JB phone? I am so used to using iCleaner.

I jailbroke my apple tv2 yesterday, after I did it.. I was like I don't get it. Put flash black on it and was still like... this is not what I expected. I don't really download movies to watch and all. So now I have one Jailbroken, I did years ago jail-brake my iPhone 4 and loved it. Have also thought about doing that to my 6s, but I'm waiting to see how the watch shakes out.

Delete old emails , texts, MMS, calendar entries, notes , apps , videos and music.

Restore via iTunes after a back up.

Unfortunately the space will be eaten over time again.

Ahhhh that old trick. Yeah, it would be nice if there was an iCleaner type app to download.

I use iCleaner and although I agree it's a good app on my iPhone it doesn't clear out the 'other' files.

i moved from ios 6 to ios 8 when i got my new iphone. for a few weeks, i was content; the new os was so much better, i felt i did not need to JB this time.

then...the pangu JB became available. and i ran it, and now... would not go back. just having some control over the GUI, some features that make my life better...seems essential.

you can always JB and run the most minimal of tweaks. but it's great to have options that, mostly, should have been there in the first place.

Agreed! I have other devices that's jailbroken, but seeing that my 5S has recently had a huge battery drain and it's gotten super hot that it could be caused by something running from being jailbroken.. I could be wrong though.

I would suggest jail breaking while you can. You can still use the device as stock, just don't install any tweaks.

Jailbreaking is the best thing. No ads on Youtube nor Twitch, free unlimited Spotify listen, Gif's on photos app, black keyboard, free paid apps, list goes on and on

My jailbreak is pissing me off, my phone keeps freezing, also I'm constantly getting signal loss about 3-4 times a day, I might just restore.
