    Do you feel a decrese in speed ? Worst battery life ?
    After 24 hours my iPhone 5 has no problem and I have installed a bunch of tweaks & apps (Zephyr, 3G Unrestricor, iFile, NCSettings, FastBlurredNotificationCenter, FiveIconDock).
    The performance is the same but I can't tell if the battery life is worst or the same.
    How is your i5 behaving ?

    How about stability in the 3g or wifi connections?

    Same here. No problems.
    It's nice to see that the A6 can handle tweaks...I remember my old iPhone 4 with A4 vas very slow after I installed a bunch of tweaks.

    Opening folders is slower. I have noticed that. Otherwise it seems to be pretty much the same... but it's always like this for awhile. Then the slowness slowly starts to creep in.

    Battery life can't be reported for at least a week. People are going ******* crazy downloading stuff and killing their battery.

    Does f.lux still drains the battery like it did 2 years ago ? I liked that tweak and I want to use it again.

    I have fully charged my device and i have NOT charged or plugged it in in after charging

    List of tweaks including stock ones from JB:
    Activator
    Animate
    AppList
    Auxo
    BigBoss Icon Set
    Cydia Installer
    Cydia Translations
    dba-tech Common
    Erica Utilities
    evasi0n 6.x Untether
    Five Icon Dock
    Gameboy AD+
    Maps Opener
    Mobile Substrate
    NCSettings
    NowNow
    Software Update Killer
    SpringBoardAccess
    Suave HD
    Substrate Safe Mode
    WeePreferenceLoader
    WinterBoard

    I noticed I had a problem like that too but I ended up running it down to 20% (just from overuse of the new features not really to drain it on purpose) and plugged it in while I did laundry came back and it works fine now. I don't quite know how jailbreaks work but if it clears the battery data it would need to re-calibrate everything like when you flash roms on a droid.

    Cant see usage stats either on my jailbroken 4S.

    When plugged in and fully charged, the usage shows 0 mins, but after unplugging and using, there are just lines through both stats.

    Is it just me or is anyone else having an issue with their icons just popping up on the home screen after unlocking? They're not falling into place like they should, I just slide to unlock, enter my PW, and they're right there. And I don't have anything like FakeClockUp on my phone either.

    I've realized that respringing your device resets the usage statistics and also doing a hard reboot (holding power and homebutton)
    I don't know if that helped you though, sorry
