When third-party customization of your smartphone's OS isconcerned, it's usually Android, iOS' archrival, that gets the spotlight, with Apple's OS usually failing to get even an honorable mention...

Jailbreaking an iPhone is like installing airplane wigs on a car. Regardless of how aerodynamic the car will be - it will never fly as well as an actual plane will. The plane of course being Android.

I know - I JB my iPhone 4 up until 4.3.3. Then I got frustrated by waiting for JBs after iOS 5. And 1 day after "upgrading" to iOS 6 - I sold it and bought a GS3.

Planes crash, just like cars, no matter how aerodynamic the plane is. Bad analogy dude, very bad.

Actually his analogy was very good while your interpretation about his analogy was totally off topic...

Threes 40000 people that die in car crashes every year, the plane crash death average is around 200 per year because plane crashes are rare.

i hate it when people say that, "oh theres more car crashes then plane crashes every year" of course there are! how many cars are there on the roads vs the amount of airplanes in the sky!?

darkkjedii There are times when post thoughtful comments with good points of view and actual value to the article or the other comments you reply... and I usually upvote you even though my preference are with Android most of the time...

This wasn't the case

Desperate mis-interpretation sorry. :) Planes are built to fly, cars to travel on road. Different functions. But you can't make a car fly just by forcing on similar features of a plane.

And flying is still the most secure way of transportation, being only a few accidents among a lot of car crashes (A lot of them) so I can infer that Android is still way better in every aspect (This is me being like an Android fanboy although I am not one. I just don't like the way Apple say that they are better (when they are not) just for selling).

I always luagh on people comapring no of planes (fly in sky) incidents vs vehicles (on roads). Do you even know how many vahicles travel on road daily as compare to planes the difference is even in billions, similarly how wide and safe sky is compare to narrow and curving roads. Now I dont have to teach you how to calculate their ratios.

Btw I am not vouching iphone here (i just hate them).

Apart from getting a migraine reading your sentence. There are roughly estimated 1 billion cars worldwide. Even if there is 1 plane in the air, the difference can't be in the billions. Even taken in account the massive numbers of cars on the road, flying is still relatively more safer.

Take 1000 cars and compare this count of cars with 2000 planes and you will still get more crashes with cars than with planes.

I'm confused as to what iOS 7 gave us other than new icons and an animation-happy UI that's apparently causing severe vertigo in some users.

So what you're saying is that all you want is pretty colors and a couple of basic features from android? You being an iSh33p, i'm not really surprised.

Jailbtraling an iPhone has become a lot more common than before. More than half the iPhone owners I know had their device jail broken on iOS 6. It's just like rooting; if you can follow directions step by step, go ahead and try it.

Except jailbreaking lowers your battery life/performance and Cydia has more malware on it then the play store.

There is literally nobody checking the distros on Cydia. You can go think your iphone is safe but your not.

"Jailbtraling an iPhone has become a lot more common than before. More than half the iPhone owners I know had their device jail broken on iOS 6."

And then such people go to the various forums and lie that iPhone just works and you don't have nothing to do differently from Android users who are rooting their phones.
