    Default Thinking about going pure?

    My iPhone 4 is Jailbroken on 4.2.1. I have been jailbroken on all of my devices for some time now and I am thinking about restoring fresh to 4.3.1 and running pure for a little while. I am running pure on my iPad 2 and it's not horrible.

    I am going to miss BiteSMS and lockinfo, but I think I want to run the way Apple intended for a little while.

    I know this is the Team JB forum, but should I put my iPhone in jail for awhile? Ugggghhh I hate making these decisions.

    well the good part is soon there will be a untethered jailbreak so if you change your mind you can go back

    i did go to 4.3.1 for a little while and it was nice not having to micro-manage but it did get "boring" haha. the funny part is i have been jailbroken longer than not ever since owning an iPhone. it appears you have as well

    i say go for it to help ease any curiosity you are having now.. you'll be back

    I'll go 'pure' when the stock OS gives me blackberry-esque profiles/manner modes with the 'bedside' one, and an ability to use whatever I want as a sound for notification of new mail.

    I reloaded 4.2.1 on Saturday to clear out a massive "other" build up in storage space. I was going to only JB for biteSMS but I've had elite pro hd installed for so long I just can't stand looking at the "stock" theme anymore. Guess I'll have to re load everything again tonight haha!

    Well last night I removed all of my JB apps and extensions. It was not horrible to run pure, not saying I like it, but it wasn't so bad.

    I updated to 4.3.1 this morning and just getting used to not having my custom SMS tones At least 4.3.1 lets me use separate tones per contact

    For the record I am still Team JB. Just because I am not JB'd right now does not mean I like the way the MAN locks down the OS

    Well it's been a week and I have to say I am ok. I miss BiteSMS and Lockinfo, but I am managing. Maybe there is something to this team pure thing

    have you found that you can actually put your device down for a little bit and concentrate on other things.. like.. life??

    I feel exactly as you do! I have licenses for ToneFX and Lockinfo, but if they both were available in the App Store, i'd go "pure" in a heartbeat.

    You guys all make iPheuria sad I will NEVER EVER go pure! Apple will never allow the level of customization that I love and have become acustomed to on a JB device. It's like driving a Ferrari and then going back to a Pinto, aint gonna happen.

    Honestly it is not that bad. Really the only thing I am missing A LOT is BiteSMS. I am a big txt'r and the stock messaging app leaves much to be desired.

    The push notifications are annoying too, but not as much as the txt'g. I think I am going to stay pure until 4.3.2 comes out. I still have all my blobs so if it gets too bad I can go back.

    Go Team Jailbreak!!! (See I am still one of you)

    I'm with you on this. It's really difficult to live without BiteSMS and LockInfo. I will NEVER go pure.

    although i completely agree with the "difficult to live without bite & LI".. IF Apple were to ever pull their head out of their A$$ and come up with something similar in 5.0, i might go 'pure'

    yeah.. i said it

    the only way I would ever go pure is if Apple made their firmware as customizable and I mean 100% as customizable as the JB version.
