    I admittedly quit checking the JB community when I got the iPhone 5, and since have turned my old iPhone 4 into my dedicated music player for the house. I had non-media apps hidden so only Spotify, Music, etc. can be used.

    Since there's a tether-jailbreak available, and the phone will most likely never be leaving the house, I was thinking about upgrading it to 6.0.1 and re-JB'ing it.

    I was wondering if there are any advantages to doing that that I'd otherwise be missing out on? I mostly wanna do it for the Podcast app, but can live without it and stick with the Music app if doing this would be more painful than beneficial.



    tl:dr is it worth upgrading my iPhone 4 from 5.1.1 to 6.0.1 and rejailbreaking it?

    I would wait for the dream jailbreak that is coming out in a few days.

    don't think it's happening http://www.geek.com/articles/mobile/dream-jailbreak-turns-out-to-be-fake-20121213/

    anyways, i forgot the podcasts app could be downloaded separately, so i think i'm going to stick with the iphone running 5.1.1 until an untethered 6.x jailbreak comes out and i jailbreak all my devices at once.

    There is no reason to go to iOS 6 to be honest, unless you are stuck with it because you bought an iPhone 5.

    As I've said many times before, the main "improvements" and features of iOS 6 revolve around Apple Maps, which while are "pretty" in terms of UI, are surpassed by Google Maps which is available in the app store.

    iOS 5 jailbroken >>> iOS 6 stock

    Where have you been? It's FAKE

    Since it's Christmas tommorow the Chroniv Dev Team will most likely surprise us anyway with an untethered jailbreak.

    iOS 6 sped up my device a bit. Everything seems much smoother than before. Scrolling, opening and quitting apps, safari is faster, installing apps no longer makes the phone run like crap.

    I like iOS 6. It works really well on my old iPhone 4.
