3GS very slow after 4.0 jailbreak
I finally was able to get the snowbreeze jailbreak to install on my 3GS tonight with 4.0.
After the phone rebooted, I am having issues.
Cydia is installed, but I cant find ROCK when I search.
Can not find my installed jailbreak apps
Trying to sync my music library and it is extremely slow. It has been syncing for about an hour and has only installed 39 songs. I unplugged my phone, hooked up my wifes 3GS with 4.0 and not jailbroken. Her phone syncs songs as it should. about 2 seconds per song. My jailbroked 3GS is doing about 1 song per 2 mins

The 3G and 3GS have slower processors. How much memory does your 3GS have? As I mentioned in another post, I SSH'd iPhoneVM into my 3G 8G OS4. This Helped tremendously with the "slow" issue and so far after running VM now for about a week I have had no issues.

Redo putting on 4.0 on the phone, this time dont restore data, setup as new. You'll have to organize and put stuff back into folders and let itunes sync apps to get em all back, but something in the restore data carries old settings or something.
I had the same issue. Setup as new, and no problems since

I'm aware of being a "stepchild". With iPhoneVM I can do what I need. I just couldn't see dishing out for the i-4 at this time. Let 'em get "ALL" the kinks out. The Antenna thing is a hardware design flaw. It's been in the hands of the tester's for less than a month. Give it a few more months of "Street" testing, then I'll be a cautiously optimistic owner. By then the i-5 will have been released... LOL

I'm fully aware of that. OS 4.0 was intended to be the OS for the iphone 4. It was not released as an upgrade for 3.1.3 or anything lower. That's why Apple released their disclaimers in effect saying so. OS 4 is capable of running on these iphone's. Apple'd be foolish not to have it backward compatible to this hardware. But, it has numerous flaws. One major being the memory issue. Moreso on the 3G than 3GS. What I'm offering is a fix for both iPhone's using iPhoneVM. If one is happy with their 3GS on 4.0 running slower... so be it... This (Memory/Slowness) is only an issue when multitasking. If your iphone is only used for calls, playing one game at a time or one app or using the ipad side for music, then there should not be an issue.
