    Alright, so I am bored on this Sunday afternoon so I'm thinking about jailbreaking my iPhone 4 just to mix things up. What apps and tweaks do you recommend me starting out with if I do. Thanks!

    If you are on 6.1.3, you're too late. That update breaks the Evasi0n jailbreak. But if you are on 6.1.2 or earlier then you're good.

    I jailbroke specifically for f.lux which is a tweak that reduces the blue light of your iPhone (and thus glare) over time. It gives your iPhone a softer, warmer screen at night that makes it much easier to use on the eyes.

    Others that people like: BiteSMS, Callbar, Auxo, Barrel, Zephyr, Dashboard X, Intelliscreen X, LockInfo, Forecast, etc, etc.

    It may be easier to just let us know what it is you want to do.

    Depends if your someone who wants to tweak their phone into oblivion or whether you just want a few useful tweaks. I prefer just the useful tweaks that make my phone more efficient.

    These are the tweaks I have installed.

    SwipeAway (Closes all open apps by swiping)
    f.lux (Changes screen temperature according to the time of day)
    WinterBoard (Set different themes and make some UI changes)
    AdBlocker (Block ads in Safari)
    iFile (Browse iPhone file system)
    NCSettings (Add useful toggles to Notification Centre)

    I'm thinking of JBing too on my 4S as I'm getting bored of iOS and starting to get tempted with android. I'm on 6.0.1 and will try Evasion when I get home.

    Given your broad request, you should look at sites such as iDownloadBlog, or even grab a book on the topic that was just published on Amazon.

    You can try jailbreaking softwares like redsn0w or green poison.

    There's no untethered jailbreak for 5.1, I believe there's a tethered jailbreak ( but who wants that?) you're stuck with 5.1 or 6.1.3

    If you don't mind upgrading to iOS 6, then you can upgrade to 6.1.2 and then JB with evasi0n. You can find a 6.1.2 IPSW for your iDevice at iClarified. Have fun.

    Yes you are !

    And theres a lot of us current jail-breakers treading on egg shells when downloading new tweaks too in view of no iOS 6.1.2 to fall back on ! :)
