    I don't like the ios7 interface and was wondering if I jailbroke my iPhone 4, the ios7 would be required or not. I saw someone who had jailbroken iPhone 5 and it was blazing fast becaus he controlled some feature that came with the jailbreak. What's that function called? Would it make my iPhone4 fast too, because I like iPhone 4 better except for the fact that it is slow and heavy.

    I'll take a stab at your questions, although they are a bit unclear.

    For your iPhone 4 JB. No iOS7 is not required, as you cannot jailbreak iOS7 in the first place. As long as your phone isn't a 4S you can jailbreak it on version 6.1.3. However if have a 4S you have to be 6.1.2 or lower. Check your version.

    As far as speed? There is no real difference. There are tweaks that make opening and transition animations quicker. A tweak called %hook's law does it. There's another tweak that allows apps that use java access to Apple's nitro engine which speeds up those apps a bit.

    Other than that, I cannot think of anything else that would substantially speed up the phone under a jailbroken environment. Do some searching on here and google...

    I have 5.1.1. Is there a way I can update this to 6.1.3?

    I checked here. http://ih8sn0w.com/

    This only goes from 3.x.x I guess, not 5.x.x?

    3.x.x TO 6.1.3 so everything in between as well

    A tethered JB for iOS 7 is possible, ih8sn0w is updating sn0wbreeze and redsn0w should function with the 6.0 IPSW trick

    Try google or this forum on a tethered jailbreak

    If you want to jailbreak you need to do research.
    Beter to educate yourself and start reading than get it spoon fed and asking questions.

    Yea definitely. Plus I always see answers/responses that answer said specific question, but when you research on your own you walk away wayyy more educated on the subject. This helps immensely when you run into problems even if you're asking for help. Much easier to understand solutions when you understand the subject matter.
