anyone planning on jailbreaking iOS 5?
i have been Pure for a while now and i am not so sure what i would do it for
i have gotten used to the native SMS and do not really care about themes anymore..
i'm sure there will be something i "think" i will need but if it comes with a cost of compromising my battery or overall performance it will be easier to NOT

There is no wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy in hell I would ever, EVER go pure. If ever there is a day where no JB exists for the iPhone I will switch to a different platform. I used my phone on 4.3.5 and I lasted half a day on the horrible OS, JB enables too much customization I can't live without it. I'm now on the 4.3.5 tethered JB and I'm trying to kill my battery just to have to DFU and reboot. I have no battery issues whatsoever, so yeah no JB means I aint updating.

Hell yes, even with some of the things Apple is adding for OS5 there are still many huge holes, we STILL cannot quickreply to a text without leaving whatever we're doing (ridiculous), there's still no easy access to settings (SB settings), you still won't know if you have any notifications pending (no statusbar icons), no widgets, and many many other tweaks jailbreaking allows.
Not to mention we still can't theme anything on the phone without jailbreaking, it's nice to be able to change out ugly icons (especially those STILL not retina quality), and change the ugly dull grayscale hell Apple forces onto us.

Oh yes I will be jailbreaking my iPhone 4. Just for the multitasking tweak for notification centre because my home button is a bit dodgy. So it would be a nice solution for me. plus some of the new widgets like Facebook and twitter for notification centre look really cool.

I've been pure since the beta version of iOS 5 came out. I can say that I'm quite happy with it. I do miss the features of biteSMS but can do without for now.
Once new jailbreak apps are available for iOS 5 I may jailbreak again if something looks really cool and functional. But for now I'm happy without the jailbreak.

I'm not sure if I'll jailbreak again. The main reason I did was because of the themes. I found myself hoping my iPhone wouldn't just stop working every time I touched it. I just don't know enough to be comfortable with it. Seemed like every time I tried to learn a little something on it, I found 10 more things I needed to know before I changed what i wanted to. Confusing for me. So, I'll probably just stay pure, but I did try and I did LOVE it (what I felt comfortable doing at least).
