iPhone Does anyone else routinely go back and fourth between jailbroken and being stock?

    When jailbroken I have the following tweaks installed:
    Activator
    Adblocker
    f.lux
    KillBackground
    NCSettings
    Spotlock
    Springtomize
    Zephyr

    With these installed my phone is pretty much perfect... yet every 3 weeks or so I either get bored or get the urge to go back to a pure stock iPhone experience and uninstall these tweaks (even though I keep my jailbreak).

    Does anyone else do this on a regular basis? Or am I just crazy? :confused:

    You're just crazy. Why jailbreak and not use it?

    whats the difference between uninstalling all them tweaks and themes and a "pure stock" experience? you'll just have the cydia icon to look at but other than that there isnt much difference.


    and ya OP, you should get out more.

    I ceased jail breaking my iPhones once Androids became more fun to root & modify. That's nothing against Apple just my preference.

    Besides I mainly use my iPhone as a secondary smartphone till they give us a larger display.

    I've always used Android & IOS enjoying them both. But since Jelly Bean is go good now, I'm having more fun with it. There's so much it can do, it's a great diversion as I wait for Apple to catch up.

    I'm crossing my fingers that I"ll only have one more year to wait for the iPhone 6 with the rumored "all new" design.

    How are u getting bored of those tweaks? When tweaks get installed it becomes 2nd nature.

    Heck no, I couldn't imagine my phone without activator and springtomize.

    I was going to mention f.lux as well, but felt like I've plugged enough for it lately, but I went back and read your original post again and realized you do already have f.lux installed. So I will add this.

    I couldn't imagine my phone without activator and springtomize, and I don't even want to begin to imagine it without f.lux!

    All I routinely do is change themes. Once jailbroken, my iPhone STAYS jailbroken.

    I normally go from jailbroken to stock because my workplace doesn't allow personal devices on the network, so I have to use the stock company iPhone.

    All the animations take FOREVER (hooks law spoiled me) and messaging is so horrible it makes me want to cry at times.
    Don't see how anyone can handle stock iOS after jailbreaking

    Until I actually started paying for jailbreak tweaks I would switch back and forth. I'd be jailbroken for a month or so, then a new iOS would come out and I'd update.

    Now that I've actually spent a little money and was able to setup my phone in the way I want it, I'm not going back!
