    Hello there I am really torn b/w JB'ing my 4s(not on contract,don't have money for upgrading,kindly do not suggest that) running 6.1.3 or ditching it and go for 7.0.4 and then

    Jailbreaking,I have heard about some crazy wifi grey-out issues,lag while typing and

    heavy battery draining problems on 7.0.4..So not sure whether to update it or not...Also My iPhone has always memory filled up more than 50% always always (app: battery doctor)

    I am afraid it would bog-down my 4s...Kindly give me some suggestion...The reason to create this thread here is in my thinking 6.1.3 JB would be good and when 7.1's jb Would have

    come (why I stated it? cause it is SAID to be optimized and stable) i would ditch it and directly go to it,I know it would take approx 8-9 months to a year for a new jailbreak,I REALLY

    want to get 7.0.4 and every other person is telling me to go for 7.0.4 but bit afraid,keeping my self on a safe side so that My device doesn't lag MUCH or I do not encounter heavy issues...so what do you suggest???


    ALso tell me about your hands-on experience with 4s 7.0.4 JB

    The jailbreak itself doesn't slow down the device. It all depends on the tweaks you install.

    I think he's mainly referring to how well 7.0.4 runs on the 4S, jailbroken or not. I am also interested to know.

    It's pretty smooth for me. It doesn't lag a lot either.

    "Pretty" smooth? Doesn't lag "a lot?" I'm still on 6.1 JB on my 4S and lag is rare... How does it compare to 6.1?

    It has less lag, at least on my phone. I barely have any apps on my phone so that makes a difference.

    When I had my 4S, iOS 7.0.4 I didn't have any lag. I don't have my 4S anymore so I can't try jailbreaking it, but based on my iPod that has the same A5 chip, it will depend on what tweaks you install.

    So safe to say I wouldn't regret updating from 6.1?

    You won't unless you don't like the design of iOS 7 but there's a theme to get the iOS 6 look on iOS 7.

    I'm still struggling with myself whether to update my iPhone 4S (and iPad mini) or not.

    No problems with 7.0.4 + JB on my iPad 3 so far, but what will it be with (only) 512 MB RAM on the 4S / iPad mini?
    I've read a lot about iOS 7.x occupying more RAM than 6.x, leading to performance lags already on unmodified devices.

    I'm afraid that the JB + a reasonable number of tweaks (e.g., for me Winterboard would be a must as it is under iOS 6) eating up even more RAM, may lead to a disappointing result in comparison to iOS 6 currently running nice and smooth.

    My question to all running a 4S and/or iPad mini on 7.0.4 jailbroken:
    How's your experience regarding the performance of your device(s)?
    Is it advisable to upgrade or will I be better staying on iOS 6?

    Thanks for your helpful comments!
