Are any of you guys tempted by Apple now that iOS 7 jailbreak is out?

    I'm not really, but upgrading from my iPad 3 to an Air or rMini is more tempting admittedly, though iOS 6 jailbroken is still bliss.

    5S, meh. I had the 5 on ios 6 jb before selling it for a Nexus 5. Still enjoying mah nexus.

    Just bought a white 5S because of this. Was between the 5S and G2 for the battery life and when I heard the jailbreak was out it was an easy decision.

    Jailbroke my 5S. Nothing works yet so I popped my sim out and back into my Nexus 5.

    The iOS6 jailbreak was extremely unreliable on my 3GS so no. As useful as things like BiteSMS, Auxo and flux were it wasn't worth all the crashes and I feel like I can do more with my Nexus 5 using just the Play store.

    Besides, a jailbreak isn't going to fix the problem that Apple still don't have an unlocked phone for a competitive price which is the main reason I switched.

    You raise a good point for that last part.

    3GS not working well with iOS 6 jailbreak might have had more to do with 256mb of ram and taking up additional resources than anything. I've kept my 3gs that I use for music in the car on 5.1.1

    I might pick up a used iPod Touch to play around with the jailbreak. Still love Android for my daily driver.

    I already own an iPad Air so might jailbreak for fun later on when its more stable. As for the iPhone, still no interest whatsoever.

    My phone - hell no.

    If i had a tablet then yes I would be.

    Apple makes the best tablets so a jailbreak would be great for giving me the functionality apple should have

    Just used the iOS 7 jailbreak to get battery percentage on my iPod Touch 5.

    I've been a long term user of both OS....

    Actually, when I heard about the jailbreak I felt sad and angry.

    Sad that there's still need of a jailbreak because of Apple's stupid restrictions and angry because I remembered how disaster it was to have to wait months for it.

    Now that I'm on Android I can do much more without having to wait months and then losing everything when a new update comes.

    There's this new thing in Android called Xposed framework which is very similar to Cydia. You can customize any ROM without having to install custom ROMS.

    Xposed Framework is really designed for stock firmware, not ROMs already customized.
    And there is still a wait for things like Xposed to function after an update (aka KitKat), just not as long as iOS jailbreaks. But there is still a wait.

    I don't need to root my Android phone to get it configured the way I like. Why would a jailbreak for iOS tempt me?

    With the whole Chinese piracy situation, will definitely wait to jailbreak. Might not even bother.

    The Chinese piracy situation wouldn't bother me at all, I would be way, way more concerned about the Chinese malware situation. It's totally out of control for PCs, and iOS will be the next big playground.

    No. I havent had a temptation for an iPhone in the least for a couple years especially since i got my GS3.
    Android for me is just way better and the iPhone is just too tiny. Even if they go to a bigger screen i wont be interested because the OS will still be limited.
    Just really love what Android is doing and my Nexus 5 is just a great phone.

    Yes but you do need to be rooted and it says it is for the GS4.

    Nope. Even with a JB it's not as useful as my Note 3.

    Does the jailbreak increase the screen size 1-1.5" ?

    Does the jailbreak add wacom digitizer stylus support ?

    I don't care about icons, themes. If those two things aren't addressed ill be sticking wid da Note 3.

    Just be happy for a while. When 7.1 comes out it will be gone.
