What I like about iPhones and the main reason I switched was the "not required" to root my device to get important features (and apps). Go to XDA, some of the best developers are ing assholes and ignorant. XDA has turned into where as the iOS developers (jailbroken) are the total opposite (as I know). Keepin' it stock.

I had an iphone 4 jailbroken on 5.1.1 the tweaks were great, i never used themes, but running winterboard on a single processor phone took its toll after a while, i still miss some tweaks when i got my iphone 5 with ios 6 for the first week i kept trying to swipe my dock left due to the infinidock tweak, im not sure ill go back, i kind of like the way everything works well together with a stock ios but i still do miss quite a few tweaks!

I was JB but I recently went back to stock to get ios 6. I liked JB but for me, it got too overwhelming to always have a different theme or look for the next great tweak.. it drove me nuts :) Now I am much happier just going pure.. BUT, i really, really miss Bitesms...
Couldn't agree with this more. Exactly my situation.

i would actually enjoy being jailbroken right now but wait... I CAN'T. between Apple making it more difficult and hackers being lazy, people like myself only get to jailbreak every so often

it's not like it used to be that's for sure

Yeah, I'm guessing you have an iPhone on 6.1.3 or 6.1.4? I'm assuming you are because you say you can't jailbreak your device. You, along with many, have this problem. I even have it. It is not that the devs are being lazy and just not releasing a jailbreak for the software because they don't want to. They have no need to. The updates for 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 are so very minor that it doesn't make sense for them to make a jailbreak. So you have to wait a few months for iOS 7. Trust me, it'll be worth the wait. The devs will get right on a jailbreak for it and I feel like its going to be awesome.

So, with that being said. Patience is a virtue. The iPhone, it be 4, 4s, or the 5, is a great phone even without a jailbreak.

Just enjoy it for now. The newest jailbreak will be out before you know it.

I love untethered jailbreaks. Customizing my phone is fun. I don't mind stock, though. The iPhone improved so much since the first iPhone I used (3GS).

I had my 3gs Jailbroken. But my 4 and 5 have stayed pure. Only reason I didn't Jailbreak is because the 4 was my bro's and he'd never Jailbroken so I kept it that way.

I jailbreak all of my iDevices eventually, the 4S and my current iPhone 5 were no different. I could not stand all those months without a jailbreak for the iPhone 5. I thought For sure the wait would push me back to Android, now I'm glad I waited because this is my favorite jailbreak so far.

All of us with 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 have to wait for iOS 7. I have said it many times, I'm bummed that I have to wait. But I know once iOS 7 comes out the jailbreak for that will be amazing.

Jailbroken for me. But I don't go overboard with it. I mostly just want little tweaks such as having the keyboard show the case I'm typing in (upper/lower) or having folders close automatically after launching apps. I use maybe ten of these types of tweaks. No big customisations for me.

Pure. No reason to jailbreak since my iphone already does everything I need it too. :)
