    My friend at work has an iPhone 4(s) jailbroken and wow.. I never looked at one... the options.. the customization capabilities are amazing!

    He was able to turn on/off bluetooth with literally 2 clicks... which is very convenient instead of the Settings>general>bluetooth>on/off...

    The only complaint he had was that the battery seems to be drained easier...

    I wonder why Apple doesn't allow such customization or edits their own theme to make it more user "friendly" ?

    Yup, jailbroken is the only way to go for me. I'd be very dissapointed to if I could only use a stock iPhone.

    There is no 4S jailbreak. What is the point of this thread? Are you just trying to start a flamewar?

    I've recently jailbroken my iPod touch and am amazed at how much you can do. Every time I put it down and pick up my 4S I try to do some gestures and realise I don't have them on my 4S lol. Can't wait to jb it!

    Ya the Notification Bar itself is very limited and practically useless on its own. Jailbreak makes it so much better. Why it isn't officially there is beyond me.

    ANd its great to see such positive reaction to JB here in MR, I thought I'll see responses like 'its not the way Apple designed it' lol.

    Had to be a 4, as stated, there's no jailbreak for the 4S.

    lol yeah I did sorry..

    oh okay... even if there is a jailbreak I don't want to jailbreak my phone... I heard it voids your warranty and if it makes my battery life even shorter I can't deal lol..

    Sounds like a great reason to start this meaningless thread.

    I'm sorry but your comment is very rude. I didn't realize a thread needed "meaning" to be created on the internet.


    Go out more.

    Buy a battery case, there are some nice slim ones and then there's no need to worry.

    I jailbroke my iPod and installed a WP7 theme because I was hungry for Metro UI.

    The end

    Since your friend only has to click 2 times versus the normal 4 clicks, what does your friend do with all of his free time?

    When I had my iPhone 4 it was jailbroken and I had absolutely no battery issues.

    Same here.
    It all depends what you install on it.
    You want to put every cydia package there is out there then you will have problems,an unstable phone and terrible battery life.
    But again JB is not for everyone. People that dont research or dont even bother to learn the basics should stay away.

    I never installed stuff such as animated wallpapers or other trivialities that tended to drain the battery. I want to use my iPhone, not stare at it or try to impress my friends. :)

    very funny!


    When you use an in-car bluetooth device, you constantly need to switch bluetooh on/off to save the battery when you're not in your car. Those extra 2 "clicks" can save me some annoyance and is more convenient.

    I use BT in mu car and don't turn it off and on, I just leave it on.

    As for battery, I am JB'd and don't have any significant issues with it. It runs down a little faster but I do have some programs installed and running that would cause it.
