I hope you know any time you install a theme on a iPhone it slows it down slightly but being older than the 4S but with newer n newer software your iPhone is going to slow down. Also Siriport....there is currently no way to get siri to work on iPhone 4 with firmware version 5.1.1

Define lag?
Did you restore before applying your jailbreak?

This question I think will have a pretty obvious 'No' to answer it but here goes... If I jailbreak my iphone 4 and only install maybe 3-4 small tweaks from cydia, it isnt likely to lag much correct? I'm really talking only minor things here, not even full out themes.

When I jailbroke my iphone 4, it was too slow. I eventually restored back to the original software. Jailbreaking your iPhone will naturally make it slower than before.

It does slow it down, i have about 130 Cydia packages installed, it lags a bit but not annoyingly.

The 4S with the A5 processor has less lag.

Siri does cause considerable lag though, i tried it on my IP4 under 5.01 but it has very little value for me.
Themes are also known to cause lag, i don't use them.

It's an individual choice what to install and how much lag you want to accept.

Depending on what you install (tweak wise) you may have little or absolutely no lag.

Quite honestly i love the SiriPort, but it lags... ALLOT. But i have also noticed that at first it does not slow down at first, but instead over time. My theory on this is that Siri will begin to write permanent scripts in your iOS system, and over time, Siri will continue to use those scripts/ files along with the ones it is creating. I have not found where it could be potentually storing these files, but i am curios.

My iPhone 4 is just as fast as it was before I jailbroke it, then again I am only running NCSettings, Springtomize 2, TetherMe, WiFi Booster, and ProTube 2.

Hey guys, sorry for hijacking this thread, but it's relative to the subject. I'm on an iPhone 4 right now, jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 and am trying to find the culprit to what's slowing me down. After a couple of days or so, I end up having to respring in order to get my speed back again. Basically I'm having lag switching between apps, unlocking the screen (especially when locked while in the music app for some unknown reason), and it takes a good 5-10 seconds to be able to use the camera. I have the following tweaks, does anyone from past experience possibly know if any of these cause the lag?

DashboardX
Intelliscreen X / Messages+
Siriport
StayOpen (keeps app store open when downloading)
Don'tBotherMe(disables update option/notification for iOS6)
