    I don't want to lose the quickness and stability of my new 4S. Everytime I jailbreak it immediately becomes a little bit slower, apps start to skip, and it becomes unstable. I know I can restore but even when I do it feels the exact same way. Are you guys getting slow down when you jailbreak or is there something that I'm not taking into consideration?

    Mine is fast as ever.

    One, stay away from deeply integrated Winterboard themes. It will bog down your memory like no other...but I'm talking really deep customization. Like animations and what not.

    Two, usually jailbreaks only start to slow down your phone when APPLE releases new updates for the phone. New updates bog up memory. So for example, lets say iOS 5.3.1 comes out and there is a jailbreak available...you run a higher chance of it bogging down.

    I want to drive fast, but I don't want to burn any gasoline.

    I've been jailbroken since Friday on my 64GB 4S and I haven't noticed any slowness or degradation in battery since. It's been the same. I say go for it :)

    You can always try it if you don't like it restore.

    I jailbroke for the first time. I too was paranoid because of the slowdowns and whatnot. Well, let me tell you. There hasn't been any difference. And call me crazy but I think my battery life has increased?

    No issues. I love the JB. The 4S can handle a lot. It is dual core. :cool:

    No speed issues on my 4S. I'm really picky and would definitely notice if there were.

    the absinthe jailbreak is amazing on the 4S. stable as can be for me. best jailbreak i've seen. ( i think the wait and the pay off account for this.)

    How many times have you JB your 4s?
    You don't want to lose the quickness, but everytime you JB it .......... ?

    Finding an exploit in a piece of code so you can aquire apps from other sources has nothing to do with battery life.
    It's the apps you have running that drain the batt, (not the ability to have apps).

    k so i guess I'll take the dive. So absinthe is the one to get huh?

    Same here. I prioritize speed and stability over everything that a jail break can offer. Sbsettings was too great not to get though :p haven't noticed any slowdown or apps crashing, etc. Only complaint I have is that the respring animation is so unappealing...other than that everything's the same.

    excellent battery life here. However, I am steering away from the tweaks that mod the standard IOS UI.

    Definitely avoid Winterboard. The speed on my 4S halved as soon as I installed it. Then I removed it straight away.

    Apart from that, I feel it is even faster after the Jailbreak :)

    If you are experiencing slowness after jailbreak and then after you remove it i'm thinking it's all just a placebo effect and nothing really changed speed-wise.

    But if it did for some reason slow down then go to cydia and uninstall whatever made it sluggish in the first place.

    I jailbroke last Saturday and I have been pleasantly surprised! I figured there was nothing to lose as I can always restore and start fresh if I need to. Battery life has been great and speed hasn't been an issue.. If it was I would have already went back to stock... JB!

    Dude, with the fakeclockup mod and with staying away from Winterboard and other useless cosmetic tweaks, my phone is wayyy faster with the JB, one reason why I JB. I showed my phone to a friend with the 4S and he was jealous how fast mine was. And with SBS gestures, I can double tap to my phone from any app, and tap-hold to my texting app in a sec...also way faster than stock phones.

    Agree with the majority. The 4S is as speedy as ever post jailbreak.

    i've had zero problems w/ jb affecting speed or battery. winterboard hasn't done a thing to the performance of my phone either.
