So, for those keeping their current devices that are currently jail broken, are you upgrading now, or waiting for a new Jailbreak?

I have an iPhone 4S which I will be passing on to my daughter or selling on eBay after u get a gold 32GB 5s. I also have an iPad 2. While I like my JB tweaks, I'm leaning toward upgrading both devices to iOS 7 tonight.

What are you doing?

It depends on what you are going to do with it. You could manually remove your data and sell it as a jailbroken phone. You'll get more for it than if it's stock. I'm keeping my iPhone 5 on 6.1 and jailbroken because I want one iOS device that's jailbroken. I'm getting a gold 32 GB 5S on Friday hopefully. I have a 4S that's on the beta, but I'll probably sell that soon.

I mistakenly updated awhile back so I lost my jailbreak when that happened. If I were you I would wait it out. I miss my jailbreak!

I am keeping my iPhone 5 jailbroken until a jailbreak program is released. If that's not for a while, then so be it.

I am updating iTunes now. I decided to install iOS7 from scratch. I can appreciate iOS, and i'll appreciate the jailbreak tweaks even more when we finally get one.
I have a family member that is getting a 5s and I want to be able to know the ins and outs so I can be her tech support.
So long Evasi0n...we will meet soon.

Ill be updating dad once I have a strong handle on this thing in the next few days.

Can anyone tell me what the latest iOS Version that has a jailbreak available is? I have iOS 6.1.3 on my iPad 2.

iOS 6.1.2 is jailbreakable. I have been reading about 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 possibly being able to be jailbreakable untethered now, but usually I wait until the forum here starts talking about a jailbreak program until I do anything. Of course, I'll be waiting for the iOS 7 jailbreak program of course. :)

I restored last night. So far I am enjoying iOS7, although I do miss a few tweaks like JellyLock and Bite SMS.

I love both of those! BiteSMS is awesome! JellyLock I just love having it there, but I actually do not really use it unless I have a message or notification on one of the apps, then I will click it, enter lock password, and then app will open.

I use PDANet on the road all over the world on my 4S too much to be able to upgrade to ios7 at this time. Since this is a Sprint phone I also need it unlockable so I can use the various sim cards so I'm sticking to 6.1.2 for now. As soon as ios7 is JB'd and unlockable then I'll go out and buy a "new to me" iPhone 5 from someone and wait for next year's iPhone 6 or whatever they call it at that time.
