    so it's been a month now since the iphone 4s was released in the U.S, and I was just wondering how everyone else was holding up..

    i've been checking the forums everyday to see if something was released, and i'm also holding off the 5.0.1 update

    I understand things like this take time, and quite honestly I'm happy these jailbreaks aren't released until everything is 100% working as I love to use every feature the phone has to offer.

    Really the only thing that I miss is my homepage I used perpagehtml for a htc like weather/clock homescreen.

    You can just keep your Bluetooth on. I've never turned mine off.

    i haven't really tested it to know on the iPhone , but on my previous phones it would help save battery life whenever you turned off a radio when you weren't using it...

    does the iPhone handle it differently somehow?

    the iphone handles it the same really but most people get good enough battery life that it doesn't matter really also if you just want quick access to settings this app IconProject will allow you to place icons on your home screen for settings its 99 cents but it works

    I've jailbroken every iPhone I've ever owned...it's never messed up any of them.

    Im very anxious for a new jailbreak...if for no other reason than simply having my 5 icon dock back, lol!

    I love my iPhone and it's functionality. What it doesn't have I can live without.

    I know of three people in my personal life that jailbreaking messed there phone up beyond repair...

    BS...sorry, but simply jail breaking an iPhone will NEVER mess it up beyond repair. If a person gets into their sub system and starts tooling around with stuff they have no business messing with and they screw something up, that's entirely on them...not the jailbreak. The simple fact that 100% of jailbroken phones can be restored in iTunes back to factory default settings makes any story of the act of jail breaking a phone messing it up complete and total BS.

    It's always funny to hear people who do not jailbreak their iPhone try to make up these stories about how a jailbreak ruined an iOS device. You guys realize that you can literally jailbreak an iPhone and when you are done, it is IDENTICAL to what you had before the jailbreak...you can even do it now without installing Cydia (though god knows why someone would do that).

    I want the jailbreak experience. I'm not sure what Apple was thinking on some of their UI decisions. Its not a very pleasant OS to navigate around. I'm not even sure if jailbreaking will help solve some of my issue but I'd like to find out.

    I do have to say this and it has me curious.. when I made a genius bar appt, and they ran diagnostics on my phone... they were able to see everything from when i updated the software to apps that may have crashed, what apps were open, I wonder if they'll be able to see if it was ever jailbroken ???

    You can blame the jailbreak for the sake of blame.
    It was probably the three people who didn't research anything or actually read about the tweaks/downloads.
    I had a jailbreak from day one, never had a problem.

    My 4 was jailbroken for a couple of weeks but I didn't see the big deal? The apps are more expensive and I wasn't impressed.

    The only issue I've ever run into was a bad device beforehand.. I have friend who I've tried to jailbreak his 3GS twice and it's gone into just a logo screen until it comes out eventually but I do recall his phone did that once before .... But still you're talking about jailbreaking devices that are 3 and 4 years old now respectively .... All cannot be blamed on the jailbreak itself

    maybe not... Im not saying that all jailbroken devices fail... Theres plenty of people here and others that I know that have had no issues well besides for bugs that I have heard of. However the fact that the phones did get bricked scares me away from needing it.

    The fact that you used the term "bricked" proves you know nothing of the issues the people you are referring to had...considering its nearly impossible to legitimately "brick" an iPhone.

    and once again you think you know it all... an iPhone that doesn't respond to a computer or charge or reset is considered bricked...

    just because i dont have a high post count here doesnt mean I havent been around the block.. I have an education in IT so please if your not going to tell me something useful dont respond

    You're speaking mindlessly about jail breaking...claiming that 3 of your friends bricked their iPhones from jail breaking them, and i'm telling you that is BS. Did they do something that screwed up their iPhone AFTER jail breaking it? Who knows! It's certainly a possibility, there are a lot of things you can get into that the average joe shouldn't touch after jail breaking an iPhone.

    Here's the kicker though...jailbreaking the iPhone didn't make them do those things, it just gave them the ability to. Jailbreaking an i-device doesn't come with an automatic arm twist to customize things that could cause an iPhone to become unresponsive...and even in that scenario, the chance that a full restore would also not work is slim to none.

    Take your IT education and cram it if you're going to strut around speaking blindly about how jail breaking iPhones screws them up, because you make it plainly obvious that you haven't the first clue what you're talking about when it comes to such...your post count has nothing to do with it, your asinine comments about jail breaking an iPhone is what speaks worlds about your knowledge on the subject.

    And i repeat my comment again, so you can read it clearly...it is nearly impossible...if not FULLY impossible, to brick an iPhone because of the act of jail breaking it.
