    I am currently on 4.0.1 with an iPhone 4 and am stuck deciding whether its worth even upgrading now for Game Center and HDR or if I should just wait for 4.2 with AirPlay and whatever other improvements.. What are your opinions, did you update or are you waiting?

    What's this got to do with iphone hacks? The only reason people around here wait is waiting for the tools to JB our phones and since 4.1 is JB there's really no not to upgrade.

    I just talked to my brother about this - he has done a ton to his phone after jb and doesnt want to redo it now jsut to redo it again in a month

    its all based on usage - i use HDR pretty often but never touch gamcenter, 4.1 was a good update for me.

    he never uses his camera and wouldnt use gamecenter anyway, and he has no issues with the proximity sensor, etc etc so there is no need to update

    he isnt even sure he will update to 4.2 bc the features arent super special for iphone unless you plan to spend extra for new peripherals.

    Waiting at least until the Pwnagetool update, and possibly longer. My phone is stable on 4.0 with the Star JB, doesn't make sense to put myself through the aggravation of buggy tools and packages that haven't yet been updated to 4.1. There aren't enough new features in 4.1 to make it all that tempting.

    I think my phone runs better on 4.1 than 4.0.1.

    limera1n+unlock today over the jailbreakme+unlock.

    Might not even bother with 4.2 -- airplay is cool but I don't do productivity stuff on my phone so I don't think I'll need to print stuff out from my phone.

    4.1 for HDR and proximity sensor fix (seems a lot better, no glitches yet knock on wood -- can see its stronger because if you put your hand in front of it an inch away it still turns the screen off :))

    It took me forever to download my JB apps and set everything up exactly the way I wanted. Not giving that up for Game Center.. HDR seems neat but I don't take enough photos update (could always purchase Pro HDR). My phone is running PERFECTLY, I'm still waiting to see what 4.2 has to offer before I even decide to update then.
