    Default Did you ditch your JB for iOS7? What do you miss, if anything?

    I have an iP5 on 6.1.2 with JB and really like things like CallBar, SBS, BiteSMS, LockInfo, AnyAttach and others. I know iOS7 sorta offers a handful of these features (or some version thereof) but I'm not convinced yet. Wondering if anyone had a JB with lots of the usual Cydia apps, ditched it for iOS7 and is feeling the love (or hate) since permanently giving up your JB???

    I ditched my JB on my iPad mini to test the waters of the new iOS before upgrading my iPhone 4. Although having a jailbroken iPad was never a big deal to me, unlike my phone, I miss the ability to force close all apps with Auxo, infinidock, customization of icon layouts, and small tweaks like swipe selection. There are a few things I don't like about iOS 7: Podcasts are no longer in the music app, airdrop is only between iOS devices, and iBooks was not redesigned, making it look out of place.

    Oh, yeah...iFile and VLC

    I can definitely see missing BiteSMS. Of all the JB stuff they "borrowed" for iOS7, I am still confused why this seemingly wildly popular feature was omitted. Very disappointing.

    Yeah, I forgot about that Auxo feature, but it is my default method of fixing things when the device gets wonky :-) I thought Podcasts was a separate app in iOS6?

    Not sure. I was on 6.1, so it may have changed sometime during the later iterations. All I know is that before upgrading to iOS 7 on my iPad mini, I listened to podcasts through the music app, and now I'm using Apple's podcast app. And boy what an ugly icon.

    I miss BiteSMS, Zephyr and some Auxo features, like the ability to close multiple apps at once. I also miss the ability to lose OEM apps using SBSettings. I also miss some of the stuff on IntelliscreenX, though the ios7 notification screen is pretty good .

    I miss nothing. Also will the JB be safe if you have 5S with Finger ID enabled?

    I really don't miss my jaibreak at all! Bite SMS so when I got iMessage on lock screen swipe and that's my quick reply!

    There are a couple of thing they were nice but now is just a good iOS that Apple made before the next jailbreak is out we see

    Thanks for all the replies. I was a bit surprised by all the positive response from those who relinquished their JB. Perhaps all the additions that Apple added, which mirror some of the more popular JB tweaks, are finally getting iOS to a place where jailbreaking isn't as necessary. I'm still gonna hold out awhile because I have a very stable JB with iP5 and iOS 6.1.2 right now and just not feeling the itch to upgrade at present. I think BiteSMS will be a huge loss if I gave up the JB, which seems to be the most common one mentioned by others as well :-( Much appreciate all the feedback.

    I will not ditch my Jailbreak for iOS 7, mainly cause I don't like it but watcha gonna do about it :shrug: , don't get me wrong those features are really cool and all but the icons feel too childish to me as we'll as the interface, it reminds me too much about android and it makes me feel like they ripped it off, but that's just my opinion, it wasn't meant to influence anyone.

    I actually felt much like this until I actually used iOS 7 on my wife's phone and my iPad Mini--it looks and feels very different when it's in your hand, for what that's worth. But to each their own!

    I don't miss anything.

    Bite SMS?
    Never understood why people make a fuss over it, maybe because I don't do a lot of messaging.

    I had a really good iOS 7 theme which I obviously don't need any more.

    Quick Toggles?
    Notification Center has everything I access most frequently except for location services.
    (Used everyday for my traffic app). For that, I was using...

    Activator.
    Now I get Siri to open it while I'm driving. It's not as fast as a 3 finger pinch, but I can live with it.
    Wut?

    The main reason I jailbroke my 4S was to enable the personal hotspot (since I'm still on the original AT&T unlimited data plan. Just got a 5S, and although I rarely used the hotspot, I do miss having that option. Def miss the ability to customize my icon layout, and to move multiple apps into a folder at once. Love the 5S though, and iOS 7 is growing on me.

    Yep. They added so much of my lock screen needs that it made sense, and I wouldn't be happy skipping such a major iOS revision for long anyway.

    My only real concern is not being able to create/test any new Cydia packages of my own.

    I'm still on 6.1.2 jailbroken. Am running a bunch of iOS 7 themes so it looks like iOS 7 so I'm used to the look when I upgrade. I'm looking forward to upgrading but honestly want to wait till the first few 7.X.X updated go down as history has shown.

    I love my ifile abilities. It's such a compelling feature to be able to maintain/send/save files/media/documents from the file system not app specific. The only other thing I love on my Jailbreak is having my old arcade and console roms. Nothing like a quick game of Mario World or Donkey Kong Country to make me smile

    Plus living in Australia and knowing iTunes radio is not available yet on IOS7 as a paid iTunes match subscriber is disappointing ATM so I'm in no rush to lose my Jailbreak yet.

    I have 2 iPad mini's (one of them I won from iMore) so I may upgrade one of them to IOS7 to check it out

    the lockscreen situation still kind of sucks from a privacy standpoint. i wish you could hide alerts on the LS but still see them when you pull down the NC (via LS)

    I really only miss lock screen options that came with ISX. Nice to be able to collapse items and messages + was great for quick reply. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with stock iOS 7 and I'm definitely happy with better stability. My camera would sometimes become unusable with the JB. I only hope Apple spends some time really turning NC into a much more powerful feature than it currently is. The appearance overhaul was nice though.
