    Default 4.2.8 jailbreak worth it?
    is it worth doing this if you are jailbroken on 4.2.7?? or better to wait? and is it necessary to delete host file? cause i dont know how to do that at all lol... or is it only if thers ..... and to do this is it ok that im already jailbroken on 4.2.7 and just restore with custom firmware?

    When a worthwhile update comes out. 4.2.8 had literally nothing useful in it.

    Probably iOS 5

    Anything that has a more "major" update, like Simon said rather something useful, is worth the update.

    people are saying that 4.2.7 draining battery faster... anyone notice that? i wish greenpoison would release an easy jailbreak that doesnt involve restoring the phone and losing all the apps.... i guess ill wait it out till next upgrade

    I haven't heard much on that actually. It could be a number of things that could cause the drain but I wouldn't be surprised if 4.2.7 actually had something to do with it.

    if you're on iOS 4.2.6, i'd say to just stay there...if you don't like apple to save your location data, you can download a tweak on cydia to prevent it.
