    Default Iphone 3gs 4.2.1 to update or not to update?
    Hello modmyi,


    I am currently using an iphone 3gs on 4.2.1 and i preserved the baseband. I plan on doing a fresh reformat and i was wondering if i should go to the latest firmware (custom bundle of course) or should i just stick with 4.2.1? just curious!! thanks everyone!

    Stay put. 4.3.3 (the latest fully jailbreakable) adds very little except more Apple jailbreaking restrictions. The main addition is personal hotspot.

    Yeah stay there!! 4.2.1 is best on 3GS....I always say...like Mes said,
    U dont get much more with 4.3.x except more restrictions, less flexibility and stuttery performance!! I know...I tried it. I had never jb before and updated from my wonderful beautifully smooth 4.2.1 3GS, to a broken stuttery scrolling and launching apps crappy 4.3 3GS. 4.3.1 didn't fix it. Fortunately, I took to apple store for unrelated issue and The girl there replaced it. It came with 4.2.1 still on it. I complained to her about 4.3 breaking my phone and 4.3.1 didn't help much. 4.3.2 was out at that time. Told her not to update it cuz I think that's whAt they usually do..anywAy, I got 4.2.1 back and will never go up! Not even to 5! It works great, and with warranty up I jb'd for first time..sbsettings, 5X5 man!!
