Jailbroken 3GS - Just as fast?
I could just be paranoid, but after I jailbroke my 3GS I feel like the phone isn't as fast and doesn't preform as smoothly. I also feel that my signal strength is not as good.
Let me say that I have been home the entire day and I never get that great of service at my house/in my yard- I'll be out all day tomorrow so I'll update ya then.

I was actually thinking about posting about this. Since jailbreaking I have definitely noticed a slow down; most notably when pressing the awake button and when trying to load the spring board after using a app. Wondering what it could be. Thinking about maybe re-jailbreaking it.

i think its the way it was jailbroken because on my 3GS it is perfectly fast and smooth and i jailbroke it.. maybe try re jailbreaking it!!?
also i installed haptic pro vibration and it definitely slowed the load times down dramatically but i uninstalled it and it is back to normal i would say rejailbreak for sure if you notice a big difference or uninstaall any apps that might slow it down like haptic or haptic pro and maybe others too.

No issues here at all. The 3GS is perfect for jailbreaking becUse it has loads of extra RAM and proccessor speed to use. I jailbroke via purplera1n RC 1. Everything is running just as smooth.
With that said, be careful what you install. Winterboard and mobile substrate were notorious for slowing down the 3G.

And about Winterboard... this is probably the worst app in terms of slowing down an iPhone. If you want a fast JB iPhone, then don't install Winterboard.

What is winterboard and what does it do? Is it a needed program for a jailbroken 3GS? Also, I'm thinking for jailbraking my 3GS but what are the benefits and pros/cons? Thanks all.
I love this phone, I'm a old BB Pearl and Storm user, never going back!
