    Hi everyone, I own an iPad 2 jailbroken with absinthe ios 5.1.1. I got some tweaks installed and apps as well. My iPad is really really slow when respring, not tLking about reboot that I never do. I used to think that it was due to tweaks and apps but my friend that has a lot too and loves surfing in cydia and downloading tweaks can respring really faster than me. I really wouldn't want to restore the iPad as everytime I restore from backup a few icons are in the right place and most of them aren't so I have to place all of the icons back into folders and that takes me really a lot of time and if the probl3m is in tweaks and apps theI'm not sure it would solve it. I'll really appreciate any help, thanks everyone in advance.

    Is your switcher (recent bottom icons) contain a lot? If so, try ending some tasks. What tweaks do you have?

    A long respring is an indication that you have a tweak installed which is not fully compatible with the iPad or the version of IOS you are running 5.1.1. (yof - removing apps from the switcher will not help in this particular case, since a respring removes all running apps from memory, so the switcher just becomes a list of previous apps which takes up no RAM of any significance at all).

    The only way to find out which one it is is by doing your research. You can disable tweaks individually using SBSettings > More > Mobile Substrate Addons, and turn tweaks OFF one by one (or in a group). When you exit SBSetting the device will respring. Keep turning things OFF until you get a normal length respring, then you know you have found the culprit...

    I tried doing as you suggest, I've actually disabled all tweaks and it still takes a very very long time, something between 2 mins without all tweaks and around 3 and a half-4 mins with them.

    Yes, and since it persists when all mobile substrate tweaks are disabled, make sure you list everything you installed from Cydia including any apps... It must be something which runs outside of MS, so won't be a simple tweak...

    I see that you eddited your post before you had,

    "Yeah sure. Absolution ipad (winterboard theme),
    Sbsetings (so all tweaks that come with it such as activator),
    Atube video downlader,
    Barrel,
    Change carrier,
    Colorbkeyboard he,
    Cyde's sbsetings theme,
    Fastr respring & resprng (i have to delete one of ttem because i downloaded them to try and solve the problem),
    Infinidock,
    Inifiniboard,
    Infinifolder,
    Killbackground,
    Ifile,
    Quasar,
    That's it, I don't really have lots of winterboard themes since they get expensive."


    Barrel, Winterboard, & Quasar would be the cuprit for my guess. Delete winterboard if you can find alternatives, because it uses a lot of ram. Barrel uses the most out of all of them. Quasar I didn't try for long because it was so buggy and laggy. Springtomize 2 makes a great alternative to simple tweaks that winterboard builds up, and isn't as bad as Winterboard.

    Unless you removed them all and those are the ones you have atm. Consider downloading iCleaner from Cydia and use it once to remove those clogged file system.

    Take a look at those Infini-series tweaks. They make your iPad's springboard different than the stock programming or cache files were built for. Maybe the long respring times are because of them.

    I recommend you remove those three and see if that helps the long respring problem. Just a guess, though...

    If that method works then I'll be darn! Well clogged as in, left over undeleted files. It might not change anything, but it will improve your speed every once in a while its used.

    I removed them and the respring is way faster now, around 1:03 secs now, is that good? Or should it be even faster normally?

    I'm surprised the infini apps speeded things up when you removed them. I've been a long time owner of those and never had any problems, although I'm only using dock at the moment...

    1 minute is still slow, but at least it is going in the right direction. My respring take about 15 seconds normally.

    Yeah. Try the other tweaks as well and re install and see the difference. Respring does yeah take around 15 secs. or 5-10, with iPad 2.

    Solution to your icon problem

    I know this is an old thread, but thought I would reply anyway as I used to have the same problem that you mention in your first post with icons being removed from folders and taking forever to put things back the way they were.

    I solved the problem by downloading Backupit from Cydia. It will cost you the grand sum of $1 and can save and restore your folder / icon layout.
