Picked up the iPhone4 on launch day 2 years ago this summer, finally got around to jailbreaking it last week (tethered iOS5.1) and have been pretty happy with what I've been able to do so far.

Still no updates or anything regarding the poor battery life on the 4s? Ex girlfriend had a 4 and could go days on end without charging it. I can get maybe 7 hours with my 4s before it's dead. Know they released an update to "fix" it but didn't work. Any tips?

Turn off location based services for everything you don't actually need. Close apps that are running in the background (double tap the home button, when the apps show up across the bottom hold your finger on one till they wiggle, then X out of everything you don't need open), adjust the brightness to be "auto" and set the slider somewhere to the left of dead center. Lastly, turn off push notifications for things you don't actually use, each time you get one it lights up your phone / vibrates / rings, that all wastes battery.

Photo apps don't do anything great regarding things like fisheye.

My cousin copped an Olloclip. Has a couple of different lenses. Hella legit. Check it.

I have a few friends with it, they all love it. It's cool, I just hate taking my case off to use it and I'd never want to carry around that little pouch. photojojo.com also has a bunch of interesting lenses.

Redsn0w doesn't unlock devices, it jailbreaks them. There is a big difference.
If you want to unlock your phone, head over to http://www.applenberry.com/gevey-ultra/
buy one of those with the code "25offgevey." and follow installation and you should be ready to go.

Be aware there is a 5.1.1 update now - but I don't understand the big problem with a tethered jailbreak? I mean, how often do you let your phone actually die?

The ability to reboot is a nice feature. Never had a 4/4S, but I remember being able to freeze my 3GS up from overworking it by running too many apps at once, switching back and forth, etc..

Nope, but it's a lot closer than you think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWnL7v6Pofk

I use FaceBreak and it works fine. You can find it on Cydia for a few bucks but it's worth it if you use FaceTime often

I have a feeling the satin-esque backplate may be used as some sort of induction charger. Apple finally abandons the 30 pin charger only to make it 3/4 smaller? Doubt it. There's a bigger reason behind ditching the sexy glass backpanel for this ugly patch. I really hope they drop the inch of glass at the top and bottom and make it all one solid material. Could the port on the bottom where the power was located be a mini-hdmi port to upload photos etc?

I really don't think Apple would sacrifice sex appeal for functionality but post-Jobs who knows? I just know I've got a free upgrade and can't wait to see what they will be dropping this August.

my first thoughts when i saw the back were that it looked like the middle area was rubberish for grip (?) and potentially wraps around the sides too (hard to tell from the pics), but everyone is talking about it being straight aluminum. idk

i like your thoughts on the "drop and charge" function and i think that would be a great game changer. youre right about sex appeal vs functionality though. the back is not very cool looking, but again this is all just rumor, speculation, and probably even prototype.

NEWS:
- WWDC is June 11th ... hopefully we'll get to see some iPhone stuff, like iOS6 previews perhaps.
- Facebook reportedly being integrated into iOS6
- iOS 6 to have a new silver look (pics below)
- Will the 3D maps in iOS 6 look like this? (pics below)

i dont get all the hate for the headphone jack on the bottom... for me, i like it.

for instance, when the headphones are in and you have to put your phone in your pocket it's a lot easier and more convenient to put it in upside down with the screen against your thigh. this way you can go straight from holding it, to in your pocket, and when you wanna take it out, you just reach in and its already right side up when you take it out of your pocket. and this way the wires are out of the way and coming out of your pocket perfectly.

even if it's not going in your pocket, the wires will naturally be out of the way if the headphone jack is on the bottom, instead of having to drape the wires over top and behind your phone and hand.
