    So, most of you must be knowing, http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...mia-920-a.html



    Those live tiles look amazing, and that's the main reason why i probably will be jail breaking my lumia 925
    What about you guys?

    I have been satisfied with the overall experience in my Lumia 1520... I will just keep it stock and wait for WP 8.1 upgrade.

    Depends for me. If this will lead to let's say downclocking of cpu for power savings I'll give it a go.

    I want to customize my phone's accent by color wheel, and maybe add backgrounds to the homescreen. So I'll jailbreak when its available.

    Don't know if it's just me, but my main reason for jailbreaking will be the extra row (or column) of tiles. After living with the 1520 for a couple weeks, that's probably the #1 thing I miss on my 925. :)

    Why mess with success? My Lumia 521 is great just the way it is. Unless someone can come up with a fix for the multiple song listings, I'll stay with an unhacked phone.

    Then again, if I can pick up another 521 for $50 or so, I might buy one to fool around with while keeping my present phone as my T-Mobile phone ( I could connect through my WI-Fi network on the hacked phone and see where it takes me.

    Me, i really want the 3rd live tile on my 920. Also if i can disable the lights on the capacitive touch screen.

    Etc etc

    Its very easy to flash roms on Lumia's anyway.

    I am unlocking my 920 for sure when it's available. I can't stand a freaking carrier not allowing me to use my data however I see fit!!

    I don't see any reason not to, now that my warranty is void anyway. Looking forward to root access and stuff!

    If jailbreaking allows me to store and install apps/games on my SD card, then yes.
    If that happens my 820 with a 64GB SD card will laugh at those flagship 920/25 & 1020. :D

    Not going to do it if the jailbreak makes the OS unstable.

    Noway cuz one of the reasons that make wp better than other competitors is the jailbreak and trust me when it comes it kills the device life...personally I doubt and don't want it as well.

    the reason why PSP was bought so much was because of the functionality you had after jailbreaking it.
