Does jailbreaking slow down YOUR ipad?
I was a bit unsure of wether this should be in this forum or the discussion. Maybe a mod can help me out later if I've made a mistake.
But I'm asking for your personal opinion. When you jail broke your device, did you notice a significant change in speed? For my iPad 1, I noticed. I've updated and jail broke it for every iOS upgrade released, and I have noticed it was slow. Now I don't know if it's because it's the iPad 1 and is progressively getting slower with each iOS update, or if it is the tweaks I install just require too much ram or CPU which the iPad 1 can't handle. But now my iPad 1 is running stock 5.1.1, and is running at a regular pace, quicker than any time I've jail broken it.
So before I go ahead and try to jailbreak my new iPad, I would like to get some feedback first of whether or not you personally have experienced a loss in speed after you've jailbroken. I am currently away from my home computer, and I have 1 shot to jailbreak it, without having to go through all that restore the stock iOS and restore from backup. I'd rather avoid that for now. So any and all feedback is welcome.
Thanks in advance for your input!
Jailbreaking doesn't slow down your iPad
I am new to this forum and I assume this is in the correct section but please correct me if I am wrong.
Anyway I have seen a few people wondering if they should jailbreak their iPad 2 or 3 because they are worried about it slowing down their device. This is false. The process of jailbreaking will not slow down your iPad what so ever. How it works is Apple has designed the iPads where the the ram can handle everything that is native like app store apps and the starting apps perfectly. But when you open up the OS, which is what jailbreaking does, Apple has no control over that so it's all under your control.
What actually slows it down your device is if it have a lot of stuff in winterboard at once or you have a ton of tweaks etc. this is going to eat up your ram really fast. And that is what is actually going to slow down your device. Now I'm not saying you can't download anything just be aware the more tweaks and stuff that runs all the time the slower your device will end up being.
So basically just watch what you download and you will be just fine.
