Not sure but I think maybe I was lucky to get one still on 9.1? Not sure whether to update or JB.

There are a few mods on JB that i miss, and i didn't use it for piracy of games, just mods.

Are the features of the newer firmware worth upgrading for? Ive been using a 5s for so long I'm a bit out of the loop with the more recent phones. I gave my 6plus to my mother and updated it ages ago.

So piracy aside, would you JB or update? Im aware this is down to personal preference due to how you use a JB. Personally for me i used something called Taige. Swiping up to close apps and on other side to open app selecter. Double tapping screen to lock. I got so used to this that using the home button now seems weird.

So, would you JB or update? Personal opinions please. Or have I answered my own question?

Just use it on 9.1. If you feel like you are missing the jb scene then jb it after a run on original firmware.

JB now, says activator not supported, which is a shame as that my main tweak. Installed anyway and says beta so will see how i get on!
[doublepost=1459643015][/doublepost]Cant be arsed with this, setup repos, security issues, cant be ****ed with themes anymore and all that ****.

I think if i was 14 again I would be bothered for games piracy but these days I have all the consoles and a huge TV, plus apple must. Not worth the agro anymore.

Restored backup and updated, **** it! restoring backup still shows cydia. I hope updating to latest firmware isn't slowed down or messed up by this messing with JB
[doublepost=1459643734][/doublepost]can an admin delete this post, its useless now. Cant find an option to delete it myself
