Now that the jailbreak is out for 7.1.1/7.1.2 I am have NO desire to upgrade to 8 unless the following 2 things happen:
1) IOS8 includes full screen caller ID (rumored to be part of 8's beta, but no guarantees until it happens)
2) Jailbreak for 8.
I will never again *EVER* run an apple product that I cannot jailbreak. I literally grew to hate my phone over the last several months of ios 7.1.
For anyone who detests the fugly design that Ive and Cook forced on us, check out the jailbeak and the tweaks Winterboard. ayeconios7, ClassicDock, ClassicLockScreen, HiddenSettings7(dock bounce)). I still need to find a good way to remove that horrible transparent blur from the control center, and a good 4x4 folder, but I no longer cringe when I look at my phone.
