    I want to try out 4.3 but I'm afraid that if I do, I will be completely stuck with it until a jb.

    I'm currently running 4.2.1 on an iPhone 4.

    Is it safe for me to update just to try it out? I plan on restoring back to 4.2.1 again if it is.

    I have shshs backed up apparently for 4.3 somehow, and also 4.1, 4.2.1, and a bunch if betas.

    I thought the same but will just stick with 4.2

    too risky with all the moaning about battery life and all the extra features don't apply to me anyway like airplay and hotspot which i wouldn't use.

    faster internet? nah, the speed is already very good as it is.

    If you don't mind loosing your jailbreak, go right ahead. Only you can answer if the 4.3 additions would be worth loosing your JB.

    The fervor over a 4.3 jailbreak seems to have died down a lot amongst the JB community. I don't think too many people give a crap anymore and are just staying with 4.2.1.

    I know, but I want to know that if I upgrade to 4.3 (and obviously lose my jb) can I restore back to 4.2.1?

    Or will I be stuck with 4.3 and not be able to restore to 4.2.1
