    Do any of you guys jailbreak your iPhone 6s plus. When I had an iPhone 4 I jailbroke it. Is it still pretty easy to do and is there a lot of good apps and tweaks still?

    I have my 6S+ jailbroken. The current version that can be jailbroken is 9.0.2. If you have anything newer than this, you can't jailbreak it yet and you can't downgrade to an earlier iOS version. It's rumored that the JB for 9.2 will be out any day now if it happens at all.

    There's a lot of the same mods out today that were out for the iPhone 4 and many have either been updated or equivalent mods are out. Pangu is the name of the current JB app to JB your devices.

    It's very easy to perform the jailbreak, but the latest iOS at present is not yet jailbreakable. If you happen to be on iOS 9.0.2 like me, you can get pangu software, install it on your computer and follow the pangu onscreen instruction to perform the jailbreak, it's very easy and straight forward process.

    OK cool I have had android for the past like 5 years and have been rooting them but now Verizon phones pretty much can't be rooted so I never get the newest firmware so I'm excited to go to iPhone and get firmware updates fast and have jailbreak easy.

    iPhones have added so much in recent years that not as many people jailbreak anymore. I'm fine without it. I just want it to work! Lol

    True, the OS has evolve a lot these recent years. But I still found the need to jailbreak these iPhone as without jailbreak, I can't actually like using an iPhone. Bioprotect, equalizereverywhere, forcegoodfit, littlebrother, springtomize, photoalbum+, virtualhome, and datameter are deal breaker for me.
    One thing is that it doesn't hurt to have the choice and jailbreak scene give that option to those like me who love to have choices.

    I mostly jailbreak these days to block ads in apps as well as in my browser without needing content blockers. Many apps are getting ridiculous these days with all the ads.

    I'm scared to switch like I said it's been forever since I had iPhone. I have bad a Motorola Droid, note 2 and note 4. I rooted all except the note 4 because you can't. I'm so used to Android that I hope I don't regret it. I read the iphone 6s plus has great battery life and a really good camera. I also think I'll like the live photos and 3d touch

    At the beginning, I guess you will miss a lot of your daily use application on android phones. But it's just a matter of time, short time before you will wonder why did you took so long before switching to iPhone. At least that was my case back to the time iPhone was still lacking a lot of features. And beside, you will easily find better alternatives to your frequently use android applications.

    I currently have a Note 4 and a Note Edge. Both of these are rooted for the same purpose that I jailbreak my iPhones, to block ads in apps. I also have a Nexus 4 and 7 which are rooted too.

    I've had every iPhone except for the 5 and I have jailbroken each and every iPhone since the original in 2007.

    I switched back to an Apple iPhone after having Android devices for years and was easy. For me though I had an iPad Air 2 for around 6 months at the time and did have an iPad Air for a bit before that. Most apps are on both platforms so the only "issue" is just getting used to the OS really which just takes time.

    Don't think of it as an upgrade since each phones can do things that the other can't do.

    That's true. But it might have a better battery. Probably better camera. Gets updates faster. Maybe less lag.

    And relax with the posts. For newbies, posts tend to end up in the moderation que for a few minutes till a mod reviews it and approves it.

    I think the Note 4 takes brighter pictures in low light conditions because of the way the sensors processing works. The iPhones camera tends to show the actual lighting conditions and sometimes may appear to be a bit worse. There's always the flash to improve things.

    I always liked being able to swap out the battery on the Note 4 each day and not have to be tied to the charger for a few hours. The battery on the 6S+ makes up for that. Some days I can go between 2-3 days standby on mine with at least 10 hrs usage. Sometimes the Note 4 wouldn't last me a day with about 18 hrs standby and barely 3 hrs usage.

    The Note 4 has a pen to draw with but I never used it for that. Instead, I used it to capture screen shots by drawing a square or rectangle around the part of the screen I wanted to capture. You then get the immediate option to share it any manner you want whether it's through Twitter, Facebook, email, whatever. The iPhone makes it harder by capturing the entire screen and then you have to crop it in an app and then share it.

    The 6S+ haas 3D touch which saves a lot of steps in trying to use some apps. This will likely come along for Android eventually and Samsung is already working on their version.

    I like buying music in iTunes because it automatically downloads to my Macs and my other iPhones/iPad, same with apps.

    I can go on but as I said, there are pluses for each device and so I won't call the iPhone an upgrade though I prefer it. I still use both devices.

    We've kind of strayed from the original topic of this thread.

    I agree somewhat. I was jailbroken on my 6S+ but got tired of the random resprings. I upgraded to 9.2 now to at least be able to have a stable phone.

    I was jailbreaking mainly to block ads in apps and to actually block calls with iBlacklist instead of sending them to voicemail like blocking currently works in iOS. I still have my iPad jailbroken and any annoying apps that over do it with ads, I will use the iPad for those to get around the ads.

    The only other thing I will miss is 3G Unrestrictor which allowed me to download apps bigger then 100MB on cellular and fool other apps into thinking I was using WiFi instead.
