Does jailbreaking an iPhone 4 slow it down at all?
Any lag like a jailbroken 3G?
An iPhone 4 has plenty of ram and processor speed to handle the jailbreak just fine. In fact. a 3GS handles jailbroken iOS 4 just fine.
No it won't. iPhone 4 has reasonable resources to handle it.
I jailbroke my iPhone 4 the day it became available, and haven't noticed any change in battery, performance, etc.
It shouldn't change anything.
Mine performs wonderfully.
The act of jailbreaking in itself doesnt slow it down, its when you're running a theme on winterboard, video wallpaper, backgrounder, and multiple other mods going on that your phone COULD experience slowdown.
I say COULD bc the i4 with its powerful processor and 512mb of ram is able to handle much more than a 3G or 3GS.
i have noticed zero to marinal slowdown on my i4, but mileage may vary based on a persons setup.
I had a 3G before my i4 and unjailbroke bc of the weak specs and me backgrounding, theming it etc
The i4 has some very good hardware that can handle the JB tasks without even breaking a sweat.
99% of time, don't notice any difference. Some instances I do, like photo album doesn't scroll smoothly anymore and very slight faster battery drain. I'll take JB over the minor issues any day of week.
just jb does not slow down,but if you start installing lots of applications without doing research then it will surely have impact on the performance...
No issues here on JB'd iPhone or iPad.
I keep my jb apps to two (tetherMe & 3G unrestrictor) so it's pretty stable. The more you install & uninstall, the more chance of crashes and battery drain. Just my 2cents.
Yes it will slow ur iphone 4 down, and it is very noticeable when you are playing games especially racing games. the game will lag.
And all those people who say that JB wont slow things down are talking ********.
No matter how much things you install from cydia you will LAG for sure.
Mine is unaffected. I did notice quicker battery drain but after lowering brightness just a tad to compensate (I've never taken the iPhone 4 off of max. brightness) that's good again too. Of course I'm not playing Black Ops either, that's what PS3 is for.
Jailbreaking just adds the ability to add functions & non app store apps to the iPhone. Jailbreaking itself doesn't slow down the iPhone at all, it depends what you add to your iPhone after you jailbreak.
I myself have a ton of jailbroken apps & functions and it hasn't slowed my iP4 down at all, same when I had the 3GS.
Only problems you might encounter are compatibility crashes that will put you in safe mode after you install something. It's rare but it does happen. Only happened to me after I installed a NES game rom pack.
Also, battery life hasn't been a issue for me at all.
If it slows down then it's very likely to be users error.
I got all 8 replacements and they all lag after being jailbroken
What did you install?
I got 232 replacements and none of them lag after being jailbroken.
i didnt install anything, I was checking see if jailbreak is causing the lag, so I only have cydia that was all. But still lags
wow you sir is my hero
I did the jailbreakme option on my iPhone 4 this week and have noticed a degradation in battery life as well as some lag, most noticeably opening applications for the first time.
Not enough of either to make me go back, at least until iOS 5 is out.
DOes yours lag with playing games like Need for speed?? and other 3D racing games?
Does giving write access to a previously read-only drive make it slower? No, but putting a bunch of crap on the drive will.
That doesn't make sense at all.
