Are any of you using the iPhone 4 jailbroken and have put aside the iPhone 4S until an A5 jailbreak is out? I'm just wondering if there are any others as crazy as I am.

I've been contemplating switching to the 4 that gf has. But with my luck as soon as I do she'll drop it and the next day the jb will come out... So no just patiently waiting.

biggest regret was selling my VIP4 jb on 4.2.8. for a 4S stock. and i have siri turned off...useless gimmick.
Maybe it's just me but my iPhone 4 seemed more... Stable... Than this 4S. iOS is buggy and Siri hardly works like she should. Stupid bitch.

I don't agree. I have no problems with my 4S and Siri works 99% of the time. I had the occasional Siri issue when it first came out which was server related.

I just bought my 4S today and sold my I4. I already miss my jb.. I keep swiping for sbsettings... One of the reasons I got it I was exciter to see what the jb community could do with siri.

i will never buy another phone w/o the ability to jailbreak upon purchase. as others have already mentioned ITT - stock iphone sucks. it isn't horrible, but wayyyyy different than a jb device.

My iP4S is a lot more stable and snappy than my jailbroken iP4. The only reasons I went back to my iP4 were for lockinfo and MyWi/3G. Other than that, swiping my SMS notifications on the iP4S lockscreen was so fast that I didn't care for biteSMS or quick replying anymore.

Just imagining a stable untethered jailbreak on the iP4S makes me so excited. That phone is so lightning quick, I miss it already.

i had both for a while (iphone 4 jailbroken, 4s obviously not) and didn't have much issue switching to the 4s. i just like the snappiness and response of the 4s way more. my iphone 4 was feeling bogged down and slow.

oh well, i just have a bad feeling about this A5 jb...won't be the same awesome stable one i had on my VIP4 4.2.8.


shhhh we already have enough problems since we are all dying 12-21-12! I do already like the snapper possessor. I really hoping the jb community can works wonders with siri.

I've always jailbroken. but with some of the upgrades in recent iOS i really have no need to JB. only thing i miss is exchange unlock.

i need folder enhancer, sb settings, lock info, tetherme, activator. i will not jump on the next iPhone until a jailbreak is available either. or maybe i will but not open the box.

Lockinfo. Why waste all that screen real estate on the lockscreen??? I need my phone to show me something informative lol.

I have. I have reboxed my 4s & got my 4 back out last week. My 4 is in mint condition & I've re jailbroken it. If there wasn't a glimmer of hope for an 4s jailbreak soon I probably would have sold it. I've really missed the jailbroken tweaks we took for granted on the 4

I still have and use my JB iP4 even though I bought the 4S at launch.
I switch between the two from time to time but I really need a JB for my personal usage and preferences.

I will sell the ip4 when the A5 JB comes out. Hopefully soon.

I've never done this. I always start using the new device as soon as it arrives (on launch day!). I love my jailbreak but I can survive until one comes out.

I did some research and from the dates I saw from the iPhone 4 release and geohot's jailbreak, it took 4 months. Am I right with this info? If that's true, I sure don't remember now how much I must have "suffered" during this time!
