Obviously no one has the real answer but just based on speculation, will the A6 processor handle the jailbreak much better (as in speed + crashes?) or will it be the same as the 4S because of OS version.. Or am I totally missing the point here..? Please don't go ape **** on me as I really do not know haha

The additional muscle that the ip5 has will definitely expand on what is possible. I am excited to see what the great minds that write the programs/hacks we use can do with double the memory, better graphics, dual core processor. I'm sure that they are chomping at the bit to get going on the IP5.

Completely agree, I feel like the tweaks will be torn apart by A6

Tweaks like Dashboard X, Winterboard, or Dreamboard should run better because of additional RAM and faster/more efficient processor. Tweaks like Activator should have no difference. It just depends on what the tweaks do.

I've never had real issues with slowdown or anything on a 3gs or 4s, so I expect it to be good on 5 as well

You can never get too much speed! Actually, I have noticed that BiteSMS sometimes opens slowly (has a small amount of lag when I first open it from standby or when I use my Activator shortcut to open it), and I would be very excited it this were minimized by the additional speed of i5.
