Apple Over the weekend, Pangu released their iOS jailbreak for the Mac, which is the capstone on a weeks-long journey of incremental releases that brought the wonders of non-Apple-approved software to iDevice users bit by bit according to their level of tinkering devotion. Last week, after an aborted attempt, I managed to jailbreak my iPhone 5S, and though I'm still dealing with some of my favorite tweaks not having been updated to work with the new OS, I'm pretty happy with the update, and I can recommend it for most users. Read more, for the rest.

RE: What do you do with Jailbreak?

Tried it once and didn't find anything compelling, but did get a lot of stability issues so I went back to stock.

Found the same, unfortunately. I jailbroke my iPad 4th gen to get a few applications Apple still doesn't allow, only to find that said applications hadn't been updated and were unstable as a result. The stability issues weren't worth it on top of the apps I wanted not working. Note: if I used an iPhone, tethering alone would be a reason to jailbreak as the MVNO i'm on permits it but iOS has AT&T policies hard-baked into the os and won't allow me to tether because of that.
