Tired of iPad lagging and freezing on 5.0.1. Is there a reliable backward path?
I couldn't wait to get the split keyboard option, and upgraded to 5.0.1 as soon as it came out. Since then, my iPad has been a dog. Everything runs slower, the keyboard is less responsive, when running a search, it can take several seconds before anything actually types on the screen, and apps seem to quit much more randomly. I'm sure there's more, but that's what comes to mind.
I also hate that, unlike Android (sorry for the comparison) background apps in 5.0.1 don't EVER quit (I once had to kill around 30 apps), so you have to go through and kill them. I seem to remember 4.3.3, 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 having some kind of built in, timed, app killer.
I know that Apple doesn't have a path for downgrading but there are jailbreaking solutions that do.
What are the best, most reliable ones (that produce the least amount of side effects such as freezing, lagging and apps quitting)?
- Should I be paying for a solution or should it be free?
- Is there a hack for 4.3.X that lets me keep the split keyboard option?
- Is there a safe overclocking solution?
- Anything I'm not thinking of?
