Could jailbreaking my iPad slow it down?

    I've been very impressed with the iPad's speed and I would hate to suffer through lag time. Could jailbreaking cause this? And if it does happen, would a restore be able to fix the problem? This is all that's holding me back from doing it.

    The jailbreak itself will not decrease performance in any way. What you download from Cydia/Rock could possibly.

    Don't install Winterboard and there will be no speed impact. But if your imagination gets the better of you and you think there's a slow down, or you read threads by other people who claim a slowdown, then yes, a restore will get you back to stock.

    The only thing I am interested in is the Frash app to watch flash videos.

    Just don't clog up Mobile Substrate, and you will be fine. Applications/extensions like Locktopus and SBSetting will impact performance a bit, but themes from Winterboard can really slow things down. But, once again, it completely depends on the theme.

    That will probably make Safari quite a bit slower.

    Frash doesn't support flash video playback anyways right now (if ever).. seems like the Dev of Frash doesn't have any intentions on further work on Frash to get more funcationality.. I believe it was more proof of concept than anything.
