How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a iphone 4s with jailbroken ios5.1.1, i know, it is very unbelievably outdated at this time.

I got an iphone 6 but for the following reasons I decided to return it and keep using my 4s: 1. I have small hands(I'm a girl), the size of 6 still feels awkward on me. 2. Now I live on a budget, want to save some money, and don't need to worry about dropping or losing a big expensive new phone. 3. The iphone 4s with ios 5.1.1 still works smoothly with some convenient tweaks, although it's heavy and not able to install newer apps. To overcome the latter, I have to switch between my android devices and this phone for different apps. The jailbreak market helps a little as well.

So now in order to use this iphone 4s in the near future for a while, what are my best choices? Should I 1. upgrade to ios 8.4.1 2. wait for the jailbreak to be available probably after the ios9 came out 3. jailbreak it then 4. Use OdysseusOTA to downgrade to ios6


forget about upgrading and stuck in ios5.1.1 forever?

Thanks very much!
