What do you believe is better? I'm asking your opinions cause I got into a fight with my brother about which is better :p

FYI: Im staying jailbroken

(PS: Im asking here and on the iOS hacks forum because I want it to be seen by 2 different main audiences)

Being jailbroken rocks but, sooner or later, I end up giving in and upgrading. With the new iPhone and iOS 6, things that I jailbroke for are leveling out into the core OS like Facetime over cellular, call blocks, and turn-by-turn navigation.

I will be upgrading from my JB iP4 soon and will miss winterboard, Activator, SBSettings, and BiteSMS but I can live for a few months until an untethered JB is released. As far as I know, it should be soon.

Jailbreak is more valuable than any sort of new iPhone coming out.

Emulators
BiteSMS
GVextension
Zephyr
Spotlock
Nonewsisgoodnews
Folder enhancer
Springtomize
Protube
Bridge
Nitrous
Adblocker
Safari download manager

The list goes on and on...

Not a chance in hell that spotty LTE, letterboxed applications, and scuff marks could even come close to the above.

I'm recommending that you stay jailbroken because that's what I'm doing on my 4S. iOS6 didn't bring that many new and useful features (for me) so upgrading would actually be a downgrade from the functionality I get for jailbreak tweaks.

Hahahahaha... Those were the days :eek:

Anyway, I'm staying with a jailbroken iOS5, as all the iOS6 improvements I can either get via jailbreak, don't care about or aren't really improvements at all (maps).

Some of you talk as if I can't choose. I already know I'm staying jailbroken until it's released for the 5.

After treading in 5's hardware waters, it's hard to go back. LTE, 4", A6, battery life, 5 ghz N wifi.

I do miss a handful of jailbreak tweaks that were on my 4S.

I dunno, if you're that inclined maybe get it and, if you don't like, return?

I'm using Assistive Touch as a poor substitute for Zephyr because I hate hitting the home button a million times every day.

If I didn't upgrade to the 5 & still had 4s you bet I'd be jb. If & when jb comes to iOS 6 I will definitely be jb! Zephyr and bitesms is what I miss most. For the 1st week on the 5 I did nothing but swipe up...

lol... I catch myself doing this when playing with other people's iDevices.

Zephyr is very useful.

I feel the same. I love being jailbroken but I only miss a few apps (sb setting being a huge one) but having the speed and beauty of the 5, I'm not sweating it too much. I will keep my 4s jb'd and am waiting for the i5 to get the treatment.
