    Hi all,

    I was recently reading that winterboard is known to slow down the iPhone slightly (though I don't know how much of an issue this is on a 3GS). Since I'm not wanting to change the look of the iPhone OS much right now (I mostly want to install the 5 icon dock, categories, and profiles jailbreak apps -- do these work with 3GS?), I was wondering to what extent I can customize the look of things without winterboard. Is it as simple as dragging a few images over into certain folders with SSH? I'm mostly just wanting to put an image behind my icons on the springboard for now.

    Thanks!

    Thanks jmann; I'd thought that might be the case. It makes sense that app icons can be changed fairly easily, but I guess putting an image somewhere it wasn't originally intended to go is a little more involved. Guess I'll be trying WinterBorad then...

    The alleged lag is subjective. What one person considers acceptable another won't.

    For me its a non-issue on my GS and I'm running the full Matte UI theme along with regular themes.

    Regardless, you can't add a wallpaper behind your icons without WB.

    So suck it up and try for yourself. Uninstall if you don't like the results.
