    Default IPhone 5 and winterboard

    After upgrading from my 4 I have an iPhone 5 now. I was always jailbroken on my 4 and I am also jailbroken on my 5

    I only have tweaks that I really need installed. I want to install winterboard but I've heard that it can cause some issues. I just want winterboard so I cause use the Carla theme but I don't want to risk it and ruin my perfect battery life

    Does winterboard on the iPhone 5 cause any battery issues?

    No, it doesn't appear to do so on mine; i'm still getting epic battery life.

    That's not to say that others aren't experiencing issues of course.

    How long have you had your iPhone 5 now? Maybe you should get familiar with how your battery performs for you first.

    Winterboard hasn't really affected my battery life either. Then again, I tend to not use my phone during the day while I'm working.

    Winterboard has been flagged as causing apps not to background properly, per some users' experience, myself included.
