How to Speed up your Jailbroken iPhone 3G

As much as I love my iPhone 3G, the latest 2.1 firmware is still not the smoothest and stable yet. Apple has released a couple firmware updates so far and we have seen some improvements, but anticipation for 2.2 firmware can’t come any sooner. If you have jailbroken your iPhone, you’ve probably run into some more lag and just horrendous system speed.

The choice to jailbreak or not is entirely up to you. For myself, access to PDAnet, QIK, and some of the must have jailbroken apps is something that I enjoy. However, for some reason my iPhone 3G was at its slowest point ever and it was driving me insane. Wait times to launch apps such as the Phone, SMS, Mail, and just navigating around resulted in frustration and neverending pauses.

Are you also experiencing laggy wait times and just general slowness? Well, here’s one simple solution to your problems. All you have to do is…

uninstall Winterboard.

Yep, after doing some research and testing of uninstalling other apps, Winterboard is a major culprit. Sure, I love customizing my iPhone themes as much as the next person, but after uninstalling Winterboard I noticed the navigation and speed increased by 50%. So there you go, that’s my advice for the day. Uninstall Winterboard and I guarantee you’ll notice a difference in your iPhone. I would rather have a speedy iPhone instead of a laggy, customized theme installed. Let’s hope that 2.2 firmware will bring some more bug fixes our way!
