    I jailbroke and loaded up my bad boy to the gills and saw huge performance hit. so i am curious as to which apps you guys think are worth it for a "slimmed down" jailbreak device. currently i am thinking intellisync (i see a hit mostly in sms) and a direct swap of system sounds (replacing the stock sound files).

    if your really adventurous you can try to get some theme stuff working with SSH or a program like diskaid.. but that is long and slothenly. If you want to have an easy and more expansive customization, it is winterboard you'll be needin'

    For performance, avoid any springboard add-ons that are not essential. Most jailbreak apps are just like most app store apps, they only run when you open them. But springboard add-ons run constantly, and especially those with visual components (winterboard the biggest offender, but also 5 icon dock/row, reflective dock, etc) can really slow you down. My phone is totally loaded with this stuff because I can live with the hit in speed most times, and use Swap Mode to disable all of those things when I want the speed back. But when I re-jailbreak (after the next firmware update) I will probably just add SB Settings as my only springboard mod. It's the only one I can't live without, and by itself it shouldn't slow me down too much. The rest of the JB apps I use are just apps, not SB add-ons.

    I will miss my theme.... But the speed is just.. well... better.
