iOS 7 will become way better after a jailbreak

    First off, I think iOS 7 has grown to a point where it can be used as a daily driver. Beta 3 was too unstable, though very usable, and I ended up reverting to 6.1.4. However, since b4, I have not felt the need to downgrade. Battery life is a little worse (I expect this), but overall it feels fresh.

    However, once/if a jailbreak is released, it will make things way better. I understand this thread is way, way ahead of even the final release of iOS.

    Things I'm looking forward to are:

    - Changing those awful stock icons to some made on dribbble
    - f.lux so that white doesn't burn my eyes at night
    - Changing the font to Boxii (love this font on iOS 6 using Bytafont)
    - Springtomize to give those app labels some drop shadows
    - BiteSMS quick reply
    - NCSettings for quick toggles that are more than just those Apple gives us in CC (come on, no cellular or location services toggle? gotta be kidding me)
    - Zephyr. This is hands down my favorite tweak ever in iOS 6. It saves my home button from crapping out after 2 years like my iPod 4th gen did. I hope they find a way to tie it into the new multitasking screen, because that slide up gesture now triggers CC.
    - Activator for changing a track by simply holding down volume buttons

    So yes, I miss my jailbreak, and using stock iOS 7 is definitely a very different experience. However, I like where Apple is headed with this new version of iOS, although once customization is available, iOS 7 will definitely be a fantastic OS. Tweaks will probably need a massive overhaul, because the new design probably messed up a lot of existing tweaks.

    What are you looking forward to doing once a jailbreak is released/what do you miss from jailbroken iOS 6?

    The only reason I would jailbreak iOS 7 is to get some Siri improvements, to get more Moto X type hands-free functionality.

    I'll add Mail Enhancer Pro. This is my single most missed feature. The rest I could live without.

    The only two reasons I ever wanted to jailbreak were to have NC-like settings, and to cheat the tethering system. With NC I couldn't care less about jailbreaking.

    Actually, I'm hoping for the opposite in that iOS 7 will hopefully give me no reason to have jailbreak anymore. I originally JB my iPhone 5 just for fun to tweak it, nothing really functional I'd miss too much. Then, I bought a pebble watch and found I need my phone JB to get any notification other than iMessage/SMS... So I'm hoping that iOS 7 fixes the issue with limited notifications over Bluetooth and therefore removes my need to JB.

    iOS 7 will become way better after a jailbreak

    Same with iOS8, 9, and 10.

    Only question is how long will it take to be released.
