    My jailbreak went fine haven't been able to use bite since it's not updated for 5S yet . Pretty much the only thing I jail broke for that and color keyboard.

    Got 5s for a Christmas gift, was stock for all of the time it took me to activate the phone then switch lines…
    Jailbreak has been pretty rocky since then. Only had F.lux working for a while. Did the plist editing and creation for hidden system settings, Then saurik released cydia substrate and my mail and Safari stopped working so I had to restore. Bite is still a no go. I have it installed but it doesn't appear anywhere. I know it's not updated for 64 bit yet, but I figured I would try.
    Remembering what I remember about you, you should jailbreak for the month until 7.1 is released… then go back to stock!
    For the week I was jailbroken but tweakless I didn't miss much. (iOS 7 is real good)
    I REALLY miss bite though, can't wait for that.

    Bite is working rather stable on the 5. I have no idea what phone you're on to tell you how it'd be for you.

    It's supposed to be updated for the 5s within a week. They've put out a few updates over the past few days. I'd imagine he's working on getting things stable for iOS7 before adding the extra fun of modifying it for the 5s. But, the frequent updates show he's keeping busy with it.

    JB is interesting me I eventually got to try it. Logic tells me you don't need it but curiosity tells me different

    I'm super excited now cause I saw on twitter there is a tweak coming out called BioProtect that's going to let us use TouchID for apps and the task switcher.

    i hear ya. it's the potential battery drain and little glitches that get me every time.. it will happen. AND of course the fact that once the new OS is out we cannot restore back to the desired OS to JB again (correct?)

    i think i am starting to talk myself out of it now

    That happens to me all the time. I decide "ok I'm gonna jailbreak" and 5 minutes later I think of the pros and cons and talk myself out :/

    Just my two cents but battery drain is non-existent for me. The status bar issue is fixed by downloading tweak statusbarfix. Only have had two reboots in a week. That's very normal.

    my OCD is far more sinister than this.. i will actually jailbreak and get all of my favorite tweaks set up and all will be good

    until... boom "that's strange, i used 5% battery in the last 2 minutes??".. "why did my screen just flash for no reason?" THATS IT. IM GOING BACK TO STOCK! ... a week later i'll be reading iDB and see an awesome tweak that just came out.. "i gotta JB and get that on my phone!"
