    Is it really worth it going over 4.1 as I have right now on the i4?

    Is 4.2.1 better with:
    Proximity Sensor?
    Jailbroken Apps?

    I don't have apple TV so.. Is airplay all that useful?

    Just wondering...

    Everything is pretty much the same IMO.
    The only thing usefull to me was the free find my iphone feature.
    Other than that not much of a difference.

    Are you still having trouble with your proximity sensor? I was in the beginning, but haven't in ages. It must have been fixed in one of the software updates. I haven't had my iPhone 4 jail broken at all so I've been with the newest firmware at all times. My guess is that it would fix your issue with the proximity sensor. This is purely a guess though.

    Are others still experiencing problems with the proximity sensor?

    Oh, and I'm never going to pretend to know more than Applejuiced. He is like the jailbreak god around here.

    Honestly I'd wait for 4.3

    Features in 4.2.1 really aren't worth it.

    But Personal Hotspot will be more than worth it! ;)

    Yes.. that is precisely what I was thinking...

    I use mywi.. and with w7 oyu have to manually connect to the network as it will NOT auto connect... No matter what I do...

    So having the ability to have the chip in infrastructure mode will work wonders and worth the hassle.

    But now.. still.. not so sure...

    Thank you for your kind words bro, Im just keeping up with the scene learning and helping others in the process also.
    About the prox issue I still had probs with 4.1 and 4.2.1 but I since then I installed callock from cydia and all is good now. Its a workaround but does what its supposed to with no probs:)

    I hear you on that, I cant wait for the wifi hotspot feature in 4.3 with multiple devices connected.
    Its going to be sweet.:D

    Yeah I bought TetherMe for the sole reason that it supports this natively for any carrier. That, and I need tethering for when I'm in class.

    But yeah, can't wait for Personal Hotspot. :D
