In the 5 years I have owned an iPhone I have only run a stock iOS once. I LOVE my JB I love the things it enables me to do with my phone, to my phone(man that sounds so wrong). I know that everyone puts up the "What I want in the next iOS" which most times are things we all know Apple would never do. So I'm asking a different question out of curiousity. I feel like two of the biggest pulls of Jailbreaking is 1. Theming and 2. BiteSMS. So my question is

If in iOS 7 Apple were to impliment a Bite SMS like solution would you ditch JB?
-So you would be able to answer Texts and iMessages from the Lockscreen, it would have the exact functionality of BiteSMS just with the Apple polish.

the next question is

If in iOS 7 Apple put in an Apple created "Themes app" that allowed you to apply 1 of 10 Apple created iOS themes that were available for all iOS device would you ditch JB?
- The themes would becreated by Apple so they would work on the devices with very little hit to the OS, they wouldn't have the nagging issues of missing icons, black shadows on some icons and all the other fun stuff themers have to put up with. There would be 1-10 themes only and maybe extra themes added every now and then for holidays etc.

If Apple did implement those things into iOS 7 I may have to stay "Pure". I'm with u, I've never ran stock for more than a few days because I love to customize and tweek my phone too much. But I'd have to really consider not JB'ing if those things were in the next OS. And if not, JB it is 😁

There are two other major groups of jailbreak users: unlockers and (as much as we don't like it) pirates.

To answer your question though, I don't use BiteSMS and neither do I theme my iOS devices.

What I love doing is adding and changing default behaviors for different aspects of the OS - extensive gesture systems, UI and UX tweaks like Springtomize, additional voice commands for Siri, Synergy and notification porting to my MacBook.

Bottom line: I wouldn't give up my jailbreak even Apple paid me!... well, depends on the amount :)

I don't Really care about theming . What I would really like to see and believe that Apple will put in ios 7 is bite SMS. I'm Pretty sure that Apple has seen the popularity bite SMS has gained and will put it into ios !

I know the two reasons I listed aren't the only reasons people JB I just think those are two of the biggest reasons. What I mean by that is there are a couple of really big reasons like you said Unlockers that would be one of them. Out of all of them I know the two reasons I listed are included and those are the people I was wondering if they would give it up for the stock version.

Even if apple did allow bitesms into iOS I'd still jailbreak my device. Until the day comes where JB devs are allowed to post tweaks to app store, il stick to JB. There are hundreds of additional features I use even if BIteSMS is the most used. LockInfo and IntelliscreenX are 2 big ones. If apple wants to make the "best mobile platform in the world" then they need to work with these JB devs because honestly speaking they know iOS better than most.

Protube, Nitrous, PushTone, SwipeShiftCarat, iCaughtU, Copic, CallBar, Delete World, Adblock, SBsettings make jailbroken iOS the best iOS.

Implenting a bitesms-like feature + themeing feature is not enough for me. There's far to many other restriction by apple so I would still JB it.

Honestly no. I love my iPhone and while I can run it stock, I will always jailbreak because I love to tinker. Some things like biteSMS, lockinfo and zephyr were so integrated into my workflow that I miss them constantly.
So when there is a jailbreak, I'm on it.
