    If I want to upgrade my JB iPhone and iPad from 6.1.2 to 7, should I uninstall my Cydia tweaks first? Once iOS 7 installs, I can't access them so they will just be wasting lots of space "reported as other" in iTunes.
    NO. I would wait until the IOS 7 jailbreak is out. Then you can install IOS 7 and then jailbreak.
    Keep in mind that any jailbroken apps may not run on IOS 7 if they haven't been updated yet.
    This is always the problem with a major IOS upgrade. However, if you can't wait (and I don't know why you would not wait), you can upgrade to IOS 7 thru Itunes 11.1 and that will erase all your jailbroken apps.

    Also Saurik, the creater of Cydia and Winterboard has said that Winterboard may not be available for IOS 7 unless he gets help from the devs who have created themes which run on Winterboard.

    I may not ever update to IOS 7. Most of the upgrades have been available for jailbroken devices for years.

    talk about the last second advice warning. ios7 released in a minute supposedly.
    Well...it's pretty common knowledge that you don't jailbreak your device - especially on the day the upgrade goes live - if you want a jailbreak. I don't think the warning was really needed...it was just nice of them to point it out.

    Lot of issues with some cydia tweaks slowed my 4s down until I took a hard look at what I had installed. Ripped out some major tweaks and replaced them with less memory needy ones. First to go was "SBsettings" replaced with "NCsettings". Next to go was "Winterboard" replaced with "Grayscale, iconrotater and a nice wallpaper" before Winterboard was replaced I was rocking the "Neogoth theme with tron icons (which where gray and semi transparent ). By far Winterboard was hardest for me to give up. Axo was replaced with instaLuncher). Definately the easiest switch. Instaluncher also pulls double duty by replacing "Zypher" for me. My phone runs just as fast now if not faster than any other iphone 4s jailbroken or not jailbroken. With that said. I definately will wait to update. Just way to many cool tweaks to name that I would miss. Queck, Check, Safari uploader, torch, video pane, open in app. Universal Video Downloader, lanscape lock, applocker, call bar, YFIselect bluetooth select, swipe nav, airblue, tempus, tapto widgets for notification, quickphoto for keyboard, Octopus...and on and on and on

    Agreed to all who say they'll take a pass on 7 for the moment.. iOS7 is cool as hell but its nowhere near a jail broken phone's capabilities.

    Is jb on the decline? If jb dies out I probably won't be dealing with apple anymore. I think a jb iPhone is the best phone on the market.

    Download it from the downloads section and hold the shift key and hit restore and browse to the .ispw file and you should be good. I don't think apple stopped signing 6.1.3/6.1.4 yet
    We would be without a jailbreak for a while right if we upgraded to 6.1.3/6.1.4? Are they advising we do this if we don't want to eventually upgrade to iOS 7? I also am still on 5.1.1. and missed the 6.0 train. Should I upgrade to 6.1.3?

    If you want to be on 6.. And don't mind waiting for the jailbreak for a little while - then yes. Upgrade before the window closes. If you like your JB on 5.1.1 - then don't.

    Yes.. I read that. But that's only 1 tweak of HUNDREDS we use daily - that are just as essential to us - that Apple has NOT addressed in 7

    This may be answered previously, but I am still running my 4s on 5.1.1. Is there an update out there to retain my jailbreak to upgrade my IOS or will there be ever?!? If so, what do I or can I do?!?

    That site is a cheap fake setup to take advantage of the evaders name. That is not their site. There is no iOS7 jailbreak tool yet.
    The evaders real site is: evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak - official website of the evad3rs
    Their real twitter is: https://twitter.com/evad3rs

    Any real information will come from them.

    Can anyone confirm, is iOS 7 really 1.2 GB? iOS is getting really bloated.

    How long will you wait? Have an iPhone5 with 6.1.4 and thinking I will wait a month then switch (after apple fixes the 20 plus bugs). Just like the idea of getting used to the new IOS structure.

    1) if a jailbreak was pending we would see more discussion. Hearing crickets.

    2) why no way to downgrade IOS to something that can jailbreak? Did apple really fix that with SHSH codes and remote server forever? Why no discussions ? Plus the new a7 processor locks? If apple can fix that am sure they will fix any jailbreak exploits.

    3) likely more and more app developers will switch to other less restrictive platforms. Is jailbreak worth it? I need a mouse for my iPad. But could get that on a cheap MS SURFACE device. Like to run XBMC but that has limited need.

    4) can switch and wait ios7 jailbreak in January. If ever.

    Bottom line is that for iPhone 4 and iPad 2 it's a good idea. Newer platforms. Not seeing it. Convince otherwise? I can be swayed.
