What is everyone doing? Are you willing to give up your jailbreak to see iOS 5 or are you going to wait till it is jailbroke before you upgrade?

I ordered a new phone so it will have 5 on it from the start? i was just curious how many people are going to wait and not activate their new phones and use their old ones because they don't want to give up the jalbreak.

I'm giving up the JB for the new iOS. If it's what they promise I probably won't need JB anymore.

Thread moved to the iPhone Jailbreak section.

I've been stock since the release of the GM. I'm loving it! Miss SBSettings a lot, though.

I'll never give up the jailbreak. As great as iOS 5 is looking, there are still things that jailbreaking allows that iOS 5 doesn't.

However, iOS 5 is more tempting than any other previous update...

I'd have no problem loosing my jailbreak for ios 5....unfortunately, I can't even manage to update iTunes, so ios5 is out of the question for now.

I'm still debating this. My 4S comes on Friday and will be preloaded which is nice, but I also have the iPad 2, jailbroken. It would be nice to have both devices on iOS 5 so they can all sync via the cloud, but I'm not sure I am willing to give up the JB. I might just wait until a new JB is available.

I will probably give it up for a short time when the 4s first gets here just so I can check it out. But as soon as the JB is here will probably JB again. Good thing is that if 5 is everything they say it is that when I jailbreak I wont have to do as much. Defiantly sbsettings and bitesms. But hopefully not too many tweaks will be needed.

I'm debating.... I'll really miss SBSettings and my SMS Quick Reply (TLert.) Also I hate the stock tethering, so even though I have/pay for it, I still usually use MyWi.

I'm debating whether or not to put it on my 3gs, but it's jb already and was speaking to my brother last night. he just installed it on his 4. Apparently you lose everything, contacts and texts etc. And thats even AFTER a backup.

I'm not tethering my iPhone 4. I rely on it too much to worry about it. When the un-tethered jailbreak is released I'll jump on it :)

What don't you like about stock tethering?

my thoughts exactly.
i am REALLY tempted, but i can wait. once things settle down on the Apple servers, i'll reconsider.

Can't change the SSID? :D

But really, the SBSettings toggle for the tethering (on my phone at least) never worked.... but the MyWi one did, so it's easier to turn on/off. Plus the MyWi doesn't use the pulsating blue bar, and saves battery life.

I'm thinking of doing the same thing Joel. LOL, but you probably knew that already.
