Tell your story here if you Jailbroke and your back to Stock 4S
I have really missed having my iphone jailbroken, I started with the 3GS and i loved it
but somehow after jailbreaking my iPhone 4S the only app i missed from cydia was SBSettings and it did not feel right anymore, I still have unlimited data but don't really want to get MyWI 5 or any of the other tethering apps
So i decided to go back to stock iphone

jailbreaking made all my text messages disappear, I can send any text messages, phone (dialer icon) has disappeared and my wallpaper is stuck as unrelenting black. So... I'm in the process of restoring. Will probably jailbreak again tho just because of the fact that I love love love being able to change the font on the phone. At this point that's like the main thing I want/like about jailbreaking.

i must say i did jailbreak. But i am sick of screwing with phones after all my androids. So i took it back stock b/c the only real benefit for me was free apps. I figure if i cant afford it I dont need it so i took it back to stock. The phone works so well unjailbroken that i dont need to lol. there were always reasons with android to make something work better but really no need. Again this is just for me not everyone obviously. I jailbroke then my screen did the small screen in the corner issue. So i restored then rejailbroke, played for a few hours, then took ti back to stock.

havent gone back to stock just yet, but if i cant find an answer to getting my onboard itunes synced music to play thru the music app, i'll restore and just roll with it stock i guess. Sad, since there has been so much work put into the jailbreak and then having to give it up for some heavily used but stock functions.
so if anyone has a solution as to why the music i have on the phone wont play, id love to hear about it.

I just went back to stock, because everything that I REALLY use was on stock and there was nothing that I did jailbroken that I really took advantage of or that I potentially really needed. Also there were issues that came about being jailbroken that I was not fond of. The functionality of stock is MORE than enough for me.

Back to stock. Which is a shame. I really like having a jailbreak. But there was a battery issue. And I had
a really, really bad radio issue where my signal just dropped out way too much in low coverage areas. It
was very noticeable. Places where I get signal.

Ok, I have an iPhone 4S on 5.0.1 9A406 build and I jailbroken 40 minutes after Absinthe was released on my Mac.
1)videos are working fine
2)iMessages works on 3G and on wifi
3)I downloaded a tweak on Cydia called Battery Fix iOS5 and it has helped greatly.
I am wondering what happened to your jailbroken A5 devices where everyone on this thread has had awful experiences.

I also had missed my JB, mainly because of the minor tweaks, the themes, and the free apps of course. The only reason I am back to stock is because for whatever reason, my iPhone kept getting stuck in safe mode. I JB it and restored it twice. It would load up fine and then I would have to respring and itd go into safe mode until eventually no matter how many times I resprung it or rebooted it, it would load safe mode EVERY TIME so I went back to factory. Ill try again later and see if I can figure it out
