I use to JB much more before iOS 4.0 as I wanted to change my wallpapers. Now, I really dont care. I dont run themes and I hardly ever used any of the JB apps. Also, my iPhone has always performed better running pure so I just dont see the point anymore.

I jailbroke my iPhone 4 on 4.2.1 using greenpois0n. It became really unstable, with the battery draining at almost a percent per minute. It would freeze, and once it even shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I had to put it into DFU mode to restore it. After that, I went pure again. I'm sure those were just freak occurrences, but the jailbreak didn't really offer me any functionality that I felt I really needed.

chirmer I would comment but I'll do that in the other AT&T vs MyWi thread since I don't want to hijack my own thread.

I rooted a lot of android phones, and I jailbroke my iphone.. I just went back to stock this morning. I'll need some convincing to jailbreak. I didn't do any themes or anything, just some basic stuff. It seems like everytime I jailbreak, I read a bad jailbreak story.

When I've restored my phone for a new OS update, is when I've really realized how bad it is, I don't think I could own an Iphone if I couldn't JB it. Same thing goes for text messages, it's nice not to be kicked out of your game, or whatever you might happen to be doing to reply to a text.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg, devs are constantly coming out with new tweaks that Apple won't allow in the app store.
Hopefully they fix the notifications and the lack of quick reply in iOS5.

My reasons for staying pure on my iPhone is just that, with one exception (notifications), iOS 4 already does everything I want it to.
I am not opposed to jailbreaking. My first gen iPod touch was jailbroken around the iOS 3 launch. The only thing I did was add multitasking, which made my battery suffer.
My palm pre I homebrewed on day two. Pretty much just to make it look/behave more iOS like.
That said, I wouldn't jailbreak if SJ said to tomorrow. I love the phone the was it is, and the lockinfo and other notification mods I've seen don't appeal to me. Really, that is one thing I miss from my pre. It wasn't perfect (would at times jumble the display, the swipes wouldn't always clear correctly) but was much better than what we have on iOS.
Since the lead designer os the webOS notification system now works for Apple, I think this will be addressed in iOS 5. And I fully expect Apple to improve upon the webOS way.
