    My iphone has become rather 'unstable' (I hope I have used the correct term there, what I mean is apps crashing often, OS occasional crash).

    I am running a jailbroken iphone 4s. 5.0.1.

    Has it become more unstable because a) its jailbroken and b) because its an old OS & as I update apps it doesn't run as smoothly?

    My question is, what is my best option to correct this unstable behaviour?

    Many thanks for taking the time to read.

    Reboot... and if you're still having issues - update to iOS 5.1.1 and keep the jailbreak, or iOS6 - and go stock.

    Thank you very much. Yes, I've tried rebooting a few times. No better.

    So I can update to 5.1.1 and keep my jailbreak can I? I've only every jailbreaked the once so don't have much experience on this issue.

    Thank you very much for your help

    Don't think you can upgrade to 5.1.1 as Apples servers have stopped validating 5.1.1. It will deny it or ask you to upgrade to 6.0 on a 4 or 4s

    You can't upgrade to 5.1.1 because u never had that OS therefor u don't have the shsh blobs saved. If u restore, ur only option is to go to iOS 6.

    There is NO jailbreak available for the 4S in iOS 6 yet. Still probably a few months away.

    >Has it become more unstable because a) its jailbroken and b) because its an old OS & as I update apps it doesn't run as smoothly?

    Are my suspicions correct? or is it hard to say why an Iphone may become unstable over time?

    Thank you very much.

    Jailbreaks can (but not necessarily) make the iPhone more unstable.

    Number of apps or the OS version shouldn't make a difference.

    Consider saving your SHSH blobs (if you haven't done already) and restore to 5.0.1, set the phone up as new and start fresh.
