    Hi guys. I was just wondering how many tweaks can be installed before the phone starts suffering from performance issues. I don't know if it's an exact number but tell me about your experiences.

    Thanks!

    It's not "how many" tweaks you install, it's "what kind" of tweaks you install.

    You could install hundreds before noticing anything.

    Exactly.

    And OP, make sure you try not installing multiple tweaks with overlapping features otherwise they can start "competing" for resources and can potentially cause stability issues and crashes.

    All of the above points are valid. In addition, it can also depend on what device you are using. For example, a 5s will be able to handle more tweaks then a 4.

    You base this "no" on what evidence. My 4s could run more tweaks simultaneously with no slowdown than my iPhone 3G. The same goes for my iPhone 5s versus my iPhone 4s. The iPhone 4 has some slowdown issues just running stock iOS 7. Also, as was stated previously in the thread and I mentioned was valid, what type of tweaks you install will make a difference. However, there is no way you can say that an iPhone 4 will be able to run as many intensive tweaks as once as an iPhone 5s.

    The fact that tweaks have nothing to do with performance unless they are completely **** written OR have memory leaks (in and of the same issue)

    So a tweak that runs background processes on your device, using up system resources, could not possibly have an effect on lower end hardware? Total BS. As far as minor tweaks you are correct. If you read my posts again you will notice I stated intensive tweaks. Also you are correct, most performance issues related to tweaks do come from poor coding but even a properly coded intensive tweak will cause more of a hit, relatively, to system resources on a lower end device.

    except you didn't say that at all in the original post.

    hence: "no"

    While not explicitly stated in my original post on this thread, all of what I stated in that post applies to my original post. Hence the "no" not being valid. If you are referring to the fact that I did not include the word "intensive" in my original post, that is just nitpicking.

    the "no" precedes your post where you backpedal furiously, so it is indeed valid.

    Explain to me how I am backpedaling. The word you were looking for is clarify, as in I was clarifying my point. In all of my posts I referred to the fact that there is a possibility that tweaks, and in the context of this thread the number of tweaks, can cause a performance difference depending on your hardware.

    If you were referring to the fact that I stated that the type of tweaks that you install also matter, that is not backpedaling. I never stated that did not matter. I only stated that hardware could make a difference. No backpedaling.

    My experience is regular because I don't use many tweaks, but I know that the tweaks you could install for Winterboard or Activator make your iPhone slow, example: Intelliscreen.
    Cydia has an unlimited space for tweaks, for repo's no. I hope this information is helpful for you, and excuse my English hehe :)
