    I know there's plenty of threads discussing the differences, expiration removal, etc but NOW IS POLL TIME

    Was on 7.1 beta 2, but went back to 7.0.4 about a week ago. Was worried about losing the JB. It seems they got that covered now.

    7.1b2

    7.0.x anything is dismal compared to 7.1b2.

    7.0.4 on iPad Mini retina and iPhone 5. Would have been nice if they kept it until 7.1 was out. I don't know if perhaps they had to rush it out because the exploits were leaked or what since it was a sudden release.

    I agree 100%. 7.1 beta 2 is the most stable beta release I ever recall using.

    Yeah it wonder if even beta3 will be as stable, assuming its exploitable

    After carefully benchmarking (see THIS for some REAL results) both OS versions and finding out the beta is significantly better on 32-bit iPhones than 7.0.4, I've decided to stay with 7.1b2 on most of my iOS7-capable, JB'n devices. (Some, like my iPad2, stay at 6.1.2 JB'n for development purposes.)

    ----------

    Then, we would have ended up waiting until around March... the pre-Christmas release was just fine as Apple couldn't make all their iOS folks work on the new, JB-less iOS version and we, devs, also had a lot of free time to test / upgrade our stuff.

    I could care less about beta 3. I used iFile to modify beta 2 so it won't expire, and I don't mind staying on this for quite some time. This is honestly the best iPad experience I've ever had, especially after 7.0.4 on the Air left such a bad taste in my mouth.

    The only problem is the biteSMS issue with the URL not supported error. Does not happen in 7.0.4. Hopefully it is fixed when BiteSMS is past its beta stage.

    Yep same here, finger crossed it won't be any problem.
    Apple seeded beta 3 around 23rd December to testing partners (http://news.yahoo.com/apple-ios-7-1...lYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2dxMQR2dGlkA1ZJUDIyN18x). But i think it got pulled, since we haven't see it until now. My guess, they are fixing the exploit. So there won't be any improvement on performance, even maybe it would be less stable than 7.1 b2.
    7.0.4 imo feels like android-ish. Safari crash all the friggin time, bad memory leaks leads to slow down in performance over time. I think that is why they forced the developer activation on beta 2, it is so stable it's magical.

    Do you see a huge difference on the beta? How so? 7.0.4 doesn't seem bad on either a7 device.

    I hope 7.1b3 won't patch the JB, but unfortunately Apple will probably will close the b2 signing when it comes out, forcing people to stay with 7.0.4. We'll see, though.

    I was on 7.1b2, but Bytafont 2 and some other tweaks didn't work at release time so I downgraded to 7.0.4. No considerable difference, since I can speed animations up.

    Do you have a bootloop problem with your 5s? Mine takes forever to restart even occasionally requiring a hard reboot. Plus it seems that some tweaks won't work and we don't know about the expiration date either.

    Yea sometimes, but it's booted fine so i just need to wait more i put my phone down and tolerate more because i don't need to boot that often anymore.
    True some tweaks won't work. But i have past that trying all phase so now i just install what i really need.
    Biggest concern 2014 indeed, we still don't know if the expiration hack really works or not. But since beta 1 almost expire and some are testing it, we should hear some news about it being local expiration only or serverside.

    Yeah the only thing is I'm not sure that will matter as that's 10 days away and I feel like they'll probably have released the next version of the regular and beta.

    Yep hopefully we'll know definitively by then.

    Has that ever been the case with iOS betas that they stop working even after beta string removed and version # and build # changed? I can't believe this hasn't been tried before.

    I know iOS has a master kill switch as well, but has that ever been exercised either publicly?

    How reasonably confident are you guys on the beta this will work out?

    Ya think if by jan13 beta 1 expires even after plist changes 7.0.4 will still be signed or they'll have a 7.0.5 released around same time as potentially patched b3?

    Not to be a Debbie downer just covering the bases
