    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'm about to.
    But since I heard the 4S jb is coming out soon I'm just going to wait another week.
    Stock sucks:)

    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.

    Had I known it would take 3 months, I would have waited to buy a 4S! Now I know better ...

    Lol :D Me too.
    I love Siri and other things the 4S has but my JB stuff are worth more to me.

    Amen.

    F Siri. The camera and enhanced specs are nice, but I would NEVER buy it for Siri alone.

    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.

    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 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!
