I just did a restore with iTunes and completely reinstalled everything just because my iPad takes so long to boot. It would take at least 5 minutes and it would boot into safe mode. Then I would have to respring and then i had a working iPad. Also it was just soooooooo slow.
But now it is great. Anybody else had to do this?

It definitely means you had something installed that was not iPad / 4.3.3 compatible. Usually it is a tweak which messes with springboard, hence the reason it boots to safe mode.

But, before i restored, i took screen-shots of the stuff i had installed and reinstalled everything. So maybe something internal was getting slow?

IOS doesn't "get slow" like windows does. I promise you I've seen it dozens of times. There is always a culprit. It could easily have been a bad dependency from something you tried out and then deleted, so that's why you don't have it this time...

I already know that. I have found that iLock is the culprit. It works, springhboard just doesnt like it. :)

I have to agree that apps from the "other repos" can be a usual culprit to crashing of the springboard. I do use them sometimes to trial an app out to see if I like it (granted they don't offer a free trial, which most do) but most of them are unreliable and buggy. Glad you got everything fixed though.
