WinterBoard or No WinterBoard?
Iíve been reading online that Winterboard is the main culprit for slowing down or lag time with a JB'n device.
Now I got to admit, ever since I jailbroke Iíve been tweaking like crazy
but Iím considering uninstalling it to see ďIFĒ that may solve some minor issues I may have had in the past & eliminate anything for the future.
will this help the navigation only?

I have Winterboard I use it only to have my wallpaper on my homescreens I don't notice any lag at all. When I get bored I apply a theme or two and I do get a tiny bit of lag. I think Winterboard will not cause lag but depending on how many things you apply and how many things the theme customizes you'll probably get respective lag.

I had a lot of problems with Winterboard on my jailbroken 3G. It would crash fairly often, but the main thing I noticed was that it would take 4-5 seconds after pushing the home button to exit an app whenever Winterboard was enabled. This drove me crazy, so I just stopped using Winterboard entirely and the problems went away.
I just got a 3GS a couple of days ago, and so far have had no problems with Winterboard whatsoever - it works great! I love being able to theme my phone again.

ive had winterboard on my 3gs since i jailbroke, it was one of the main reason i did. have used illumine and a few others currently have the carbon ovation. the theme is a b**** to set up but its great. alot of people complain abt lag while using this theme but i have experienced very little. and it is a pretty demanding theme
in fact i uninstalled winterboard earlier this week and yeah I may have gained a second or two in navigation time but it's a small price to pay to have a cool set up.
i am glad this had no affect on my web browsing.
so i went back to WB, the tweaking continues!
