    I've been jailbroken for over a full year with no problems whatsoever.

    But for what it's worth I'm still on 4.0 and don't have it bogged down with a bunch of crap like backgrounds and whatnot. I just have 3G unrestrictor, iBlacklist, SBSettings, stuff like that.

    What do you mean by 'unstable'? Constant crashing? Apps not working?

    Phone restarting?

    :confused::confused:

    Lol, yep I'm literally still on 4.0

    I've actually been thinking lately of going to 4.2+ so I can get Find My iPhone and some other stuff but man, the thought of screwing with iTunes just turns me off. Everytime I do anything with iTunes it seems to erase a bunch of crap off my phone. I can't seem to manage to figure out how to make iTunes to just default to how my phone is CURRENTLY setup (and no, iTunes, I don't want to have to check every app one by one by one, etc.) so I just do without.

    I don't see why this isn't an option in iTunes (unless I'm missing something). There should just be a checkbox for this. iTunes is very un-intuitive.

    It depends on what JB items you installed on it.
    I keep about 6-8 JB addons that I really need and dont install every single thing on cydia.
    Stick with what works and mostly with the popular packages.
    Or install things slowly one by one to figure out the app that's causing the problems.

    It's all about what you put on your phone. I am running the below apps from Cydia and it is completely stable. Just don't put a ton of crap om the phone.

    Lockinfo
    Lockinfo Weather
    Mywi
    TvTube

    I believe that there is a Cydia app that allows you to sync your jb ip4 to iTunes apps and all I forgot the name of the app but it shouldn't be hard to find

    The act of Jailbreaking doesn't make your phone unstable. All it allows you to do is have root access to the system files. What could have been causing your phone to crash is some tweaks you've downloaded off Cydia. Make sure whatever tweak you want to install is compatible with the firmware you're on.

    I was jailbroken on 4.3.3 for a while. Seemed to be experiencing issues like bad battery life, crashing etc.

    I got 4.3.3 IPSW via iFaith upgraded to 4.3.5 and it's been alot better.

    I think I'm going to stay stock.

    I would've removed any Cydia apps one by one to find the app that was causing your problems.

    Shame to lose JB over 1 or2 errant apps.

    Exactly.

    You went to too much of an extreme, OP.

    You didn't have to lose your jailbreak. You could've tested to see which app/add-on it was.

    You should have just gone through Cydia and uninstalled all the crap.

    Not always. If you do it CORRECTLY you will get it right. Jailbreak=fun.
