How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have been jailbreaking my phone since the 3GS and now the 5S. I am by no means code savvy. I understand what jailbreaking is, in theory. And I love to install tweaks on my phone. But I prefer to be in a state of 'set it and forget it'. With older jailbreaks, there used to be a tool, you jailbreak the phone and it's done. With the new one, I hear that if I reboot the phone I'll have to re jailbreak the phone using the app. And seems ike tere is some talk of some 'certificate'. I do not understand the intricacies of any of this.

So my question is, is the new jailbreak worth it to anyone who does not want the hassle of constantly tweaking files and who is not code/jailbreak savvy? I am currently on a jailbreak for ios 8. And would very much prefer to stay there if it means saving my sanity.

What is the verdict?

Semi-untethered/can be signed for only one year. Every time you you reboot you loose it. When tethered it goes into safe mode if your iDevice reboots. I'm anchored to iOS 9 right now, until there is an untethered iOS jailbreak.
