    I sent my iPhone 5 out for modification awhile back and used my iP4 during the duration.

    Fast forward a couple of weeks and with my iP5 returned was happy to pop my SIM back into it and go about my business. Sure, it is sleeker/faster/brighter/whatever but in all honesty- I missed the iP4 jailbroken to such a remarkable degree, went back a couple of days later and placed the SIM back in.

    I have my iP4 set up perfectly, for me. I ran iCleaner Pro and it runs like a charm.
    I have %Hook installed so the feel is faster (even more so than the 5).

    My theme suits me just fine and little additions like "Fast Photo" and other tweaks that customize the full experience of using my iPhone make using it a joy, even over that of the iPhone5!

    Anyone else simply shrug at the suggestion that although the iP5 is sure enough a 'better iPhone' the simple joy of using a jailbroken 4 is sublime?

    Any jailbroken device trumps stock for me--even if the stock device is newer. I've held onto my iPhone 4 as a "just in case" device for that reason; if something happened to kill the jailbreak on my 5, I'd probably go back to the 4 until the next JB came available.

    Nice theme, what is it?

    That's why I haven't updated to a 4S or 5. That bottom exploit means I will ALWAYS have at least a tethered jailbreak. That insurance isn't there with a newer device.

    And with SemiTether installed, even if my iP4 goes into a boot, it functions mostly outside of Cydia and a few apps...

    The theme is Laguna HD.
    There is also a version designed specifically for the iP5 and another for the iPad.

    Couple more screen shots with this theme:

    I made the (I realize now, absolutely TERRIBLE) mistake of trying iOS 7 on my iPhone 5, and giving up my jailbreak. I'm now back on iOS 6.1.4 on iPhone 5 and missing the jailbreak VERY much. I've been seriously considering going back to my iPhone 4 as my daily so I can have a jailbreak again.
    You really say the speed decrease isn't painfully bad and any other features you miss from the 5?

    Not painful whatsoever, but please keep in mind: I have terrific AT&T reception here- four bars, sometimes five on a regular basis.

    Make no mistake, LTE is lightening quick but after a day I don't notice it much and even to a lesser degree, care.

    I'm so happy to hear this. Is your 4 running iOS 6? I'm also up in the air between going WAY back to iOS 5 or just sticking w/ 6 if I go through with it.

    After having used my iPhone 5 for a couple of days (stock, before the jailbreak was released) I could never go back to my iPhone 4 since it was so S-L-O-W compared to iPhone 5.

    The Font is Neutraface, comes with the theme and is applied via Bytafont.

    My iPhone4 is running 6.1.3

    Just realized this: how did you put the SIM card from the 5 to the 4?

    I have a jailbroken iPad Mini, a iPhone 5 on iOS 7 beta, and a iPod Touch running stock, I think I have the best of 3 worlds.

    I agree with everything the OP said, except that it applies to my jailbroken iPhone 5.

    I have nothing to go back to except an HTC Touch Pro. :rolleyes:

    The only thing that would keep me from going back is LTE. 3G performance has never been that great in my area and LTE made a world of a difference.

    Welp, tried it tonight and immediately back to the 5. The 4 was just way too slow at what I'm now used to being fast, basic tasks. Why did iOS 7 have to be so tempting for me... :(
