It's alot more stable. I'm sick of 7.1.X problems. It's a junk OS. Joining the beta crowd. Seems like a very stable release so far (beta 4).

Any bugs or glitches that are bad enough to make me go back?

1. There are less problems in 7.1.x than the beta- so your comment makes no sense. You will experience more bugs in the betas than a public release.
2. If you are using iOS 8 beta already you could see the bugs for yourself that would make you want to go back. So why are you asking??
3. It's the same, as you so elequently say, "junk" OS as ios 7- so maybe you should change to Android if you feel so strongly and do us all a favour.

I agree. He junked it himself when he did the jailbreak and then he blames it on the OS. He could junk it again if he jailbreaks ios 8.

I understand not all jailbreaks have problems though, but when it does you can't blame it on the OS.

7.1 is more stable, iOS 8 is okay but it does get glitchy at times and some apps may not work. If it works for you though good luck.

I left the beta game after updating to beta 2 and seeing it was still too unstable to use on a daily basis (for me). Skipped beta three and installed beta 4 yesterday. Reverted to 7.1.2 jailbroken after a few minutes after seeing that one of my daily use apps still crashes on launch.

If it wasn't for the app incompatibilities, it would probably be an usable OS. Everybody's experience is going to be different but for me it's probably going to be GM or public release before I can install for good.

7.1.2 is rock solid. Did you ever think about the fact you were having issues because you were jailbroken and had a bunch of random, probably useless crap installed?

Lol no. 7.1.1, and 7.1.2 are very glitchy and laggy even vanilla. First of all, the lock screen should not take 10 seconds to show up. And second of all, if my device is locked and i press the home button to wake it up. It should wake it up. Not access siri. And also... It shouldnt get stuck between homescreen pages. I had these problems using vanilla, so no its not due to the jailbreak its just that 7.1.1-7.1.2 is crap.

Sounds like you have a bad phone, maybe you should return it?

My lock screen appears instantly if I push the power/sleep button

I usually use the home button to wake my phone however, and have NEVER accidentally activated siri. Don't hold it down too long.. Push and let go or keep your thumb on the button without depressing it to use Touch ID unlock

What gets stuck between home screen pages? What does that even mean?

dont mean to be offensive, but I'm not stupid... i know how long to press the button. And the pages freeze when trying to page through icons. the phone has a screen issue, so its going back anyways but the last phone i had (same model) worked completely fine on 7.0.4, then when i restored to 7.1.2, it became very laggy, and had the issues i mentioned above. so it's probably both the phone itself, and the software.

My first car was an MG Midget. I ignored a low oil pressure warning and the engine seized, so all MG Midgets are crap. Hmmm... Wait, that's true. Give me some time to think of a different analogy.

If it was the software, I imagine there would be a lot more complaints from users on this. Are you doing a new install with 7.1.2 or restoring a backup? Try setting up as a new one when you get your replacement.

i've had 2 different phones on 7.1.2, and both were terrible. so, don't waste your time.

Let's see... What's common between both of those phones...

But seriously (folks), your position is laughable. Go to an Apple store and see how many display phones take 10 seconds for the lock screen to appear. Unless, of course, you went to planet Scalos on the Enterprise or some other means and drank the local water.

I don't know what to tell you OP. My wife has an iPhone 4s, I'm using a 5, both run fine with the latest version of iOS 7. The whole 10 seconds thing you claim, something is wrong there. You should have taken the phones to an Apple store if that is legitimately happening.

I think you are deluded

beta 4 is stable but it has tons of iCloud bugs which drain the battery big time... can't see that as a benefit over 7.1.2

I understand not all jailbreaks have problems though, but when it does you can't blame it on the OS.
Oh wait ... there ain't no jailbreak for iOS 8 ... but ... assuming the jailbreak is perfect and iOS 7 must be buggy is definitely a reason for installing an iOS 8 beta

well... i guess i'll have it replaced again. getting sick of this, and btw, i had all the same tweaks installed on 7.0.4, and my phone ran flawlessly. now 7.1.2 screws it up.

Oh wait, it is surprising that we who presumably possess the intellectual capacity for hypothetical thought needs to make this irrelevant point.

"If I buy the Ford Explorer 2018, I will wash it once in a while." One can make this statement while the 2018 does not yet exist.

"If I jailbreak iOS 60, I will tell this forum about it." This is a legitimate statement even when iOS 60 does not exist yet and even when I do not know if there will be a iOS 60 or if this forum will still exist by then.

If he indeed junked iOS 7 by the jailbreak then he might junk iOS 8 too if he jailbreaks it (when and if a jailbreak for iOS 8 becomes available, a point that is assumed but does not need to be stated explicitly). The principle or hypothetical scenario applies fully even when there is no jailbreak available for iOS 8.

Agreed that for the majority of people this post was not needed but you can bet that if the post wasn't posted then there would be someone asking where the IOS 8 jailbreak was and how they could get it. :)

atituuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

jeez louise.

first of all, there are many threads on the bugs in iOS beta 4. There are also release notes that detail them.

Secondly, if you search around you'll see that no one has the problems you described in iOS 7.1. It's likely bad hardware, and although unlikely, it's possible you got two lemons in a row.

telling people to not waste their time telling you that 7.1 works great on their phones is 1) immature 2) rude 3) unproductive and 4) goes against what you said this place is all about... discussion!
