    Forget the jailbreak, I just miss having iOS work properly. :p

    But if you're enjoying being jailbroken on iOS 6, there's really nothing compelling about upgrading to 7.

    Not really since the only tweak I used was nc settings and ios 7 has that built in, although it will be nice when a ios 7 jailbreak comes out.

    Nope never looked back. This is not to say I won't JB when it's out ;).

    Yea, but only because I had updated to iOS 6.1.4 and lost my previous jailbreak before, so it didn't really matter for me.:(

    I loved being jailbroken, I've been jailbreaking since my iPod touch 4th gen, so I was very used to it and familiar.

    But ever since iOS7 I don't miss it AS much. The control panel really helps, makes me miss SBSettings less and SBSettings was one of my favorites.

    One thing I really miss are the tweaks I had installed. Loved using activator a lot, Pandora skip tweak, Adblocker, I can't even remember all the tweaks because I had so many. A couple keyboard tweaks, notification/status bar tweaks.

    I also really miss Zephyr. I think Zephyr is the biggest thing I hated losing when I upgraded to 7.

    But I am definitely going to jailbreak my 5S as soon as it's available and stable. iPhones are even better when you can tinker with them.

    I'm happy with ios7. With my jb I had too many conflicts, hence instability. Ios7 is fast and much more stable than my jb. Only thing I miss is tethering.

    When I had my iPhone 5 I updated to the iOS 7 beta first day it came out and never looked back. But there was one thing I really miss and that's quick reply for text with bitesms.

    I have an iPhone 4 running 6.1.2 and Jailbroken and I love it! I bought an iPad4 few months ago it was also running 6.1.3 but no JB and it was a quite boring device.
    I returned it back today due to a software issue (here's my thread for it: and I requested the IOS to be kept in 6.1.3 but they said they might have to restore to IOS7. I hope it stays as it is fingers x
    I wouldn't upgrade to 7 unless there's a IOS7 JB and revert back to 6

    Can never leave activator, zephyr, and sb.

    Until you can customize control center toggles...pointless

    You will be dialing in the pain if you attempt to follow the instructions and download it.

    I finally updated my jb ipad3 a couple of days ago. I do miss XBMC, file, and bitesms. However, more and more of my installed apps were becoming incompatible with 6.1, and required ios7. I will certainly consider re-jb if one becomes avail for ios7.

    Oops...still on iOS 5!? Guess I should join 2013/14 when I can run MyWi on iOS 7.

    Miss but not necessarily regret. Using stock iOS 7 has been fairly painless compared to other versions. However, there are plenty of tweaks I wouldn't mind having and I'm sure there will be some exciting new ones. I had quite a few tweaks on ios6 but if I could pick a few that I actually miss due to their core functions they would be Zephyr, IntelliscreenX, quick reply (any app would do), Swipe Selection.

    BTW, what happens with all the apps that are updated for iOS7 on ios6 devices? One thing I'm enjoying is my favorite apps being refreshed, some with much improved redesigns.

    BTW, over at the iOS7 forum, we're discussing f.lux quite extensively (and heatedly):


    Many redesigns run just fine on iOS6 - for example, the latest versions of AVPlayer(HD), which has received a complete iOS7-like makeup.

    I miss biteSMS's quick reply feature, but I don't regret upgrading.
