    i prefer stock, runs better and faster
    i dont really need any of the jailbroken apps, but getting the free app store apps is nice if you are jailbroken

    there are no cons to jailbreaking... there's no way to completely brick an iPhone, you'll always be able to restore original firmware, it doesn't slow performance at all. You can download cracked versions of apps (that are in the app store) and install them on the phone for free....

    You're right, it doesn't. It's when you install other stuff after that where you hit the performance issues. Winterboard definitely slows things down.

    i have had absolutely no performance issues after jailbreak at all. i ran stock 2.1 for a few days before the jb and its been the exact same. winterboard doesnt even slow stuff down for me at all, i dont even see why it would.
