The one and probably only thing I miss from my BB was BeWeather. I missed not being able to have the weather information for the Corn Patch on my home screen or lock screen. Since Apple doesn't allow you to do that, JB was the answer. I've found several weather widgets I like, but BeWeather was still the best and easiest to use. No SSHing.

I really have a tough time living without quick reply and gridlock. Yes JB is really time consuming. Certain tweaks kill battery and slow down the phone. But so much of it is a lot of fun to just try out!

I just JB'd my 4s a few days ago and the one tweak that I really dig is Brightness Plug. In the house I keep my screen at like 25-30%. When I get in the car and plug in while it's in the holder goes right to 100%. Take it off charger goes right back to 25-30%.
I like all the custom themes but I will miss Brightness Plug when iOS 6 comes out and I go back to stock.

I was on the fence for a while about JB. I purchased my 4S in order to have all my devices on the same OS. I do love my 4S but I truly missed the customization options I had with my HTC Evo. I've spent hours on the phone with Apple asking how to complete different task only to find out no dice. I was really tired of each customer service rep telling me to go the suggestion forum share my input. This past weekend I had a friend JD my 4S. I was happy, so happy that "I" JB my iPod Touch 4 G. I did encounter one problem with my Touch but that was b/c I had a bad source loaded. I wiped my Touch and re-JB again. Now I have learned not to load several sources back to back. I'm back up and running again.
My top JB reasons: Customization (I have being cookie cutter...like everyone else)....I refer to think outside the box. I like the tweaks, mods, addons, and themes. All the extra options are not just kool, they add simplicity and functionality to my life. I don't mind researching and learning about the latest options....everyone has hobbies and this is one of mine.
