    In preparation for 6.1.3 I am getting my definitive list of tweaks that I want and only those that I want and then plan on doing a final restore and jb then put my stuff on and leave it alone...this got me wondering...does it slow down the phone or hurt it in any way to install a bunch of tweaks then uninstall them and try new stuff out etc...ive had a ton of stuff on my phone and have wasted a bunch of cash to try this stuff out...i own virtually all of the paid apps...but i always come back to my favorite 5 or 6....

    Yesterday, I did exactly what it is you are doing. Fresh restore/jailbreak and now leave it alone.

    In times past, sure enough I'd add some (lame) tweak that buggered up my iPhone to a point of needing a restore, thus my jailbreak was gone.

    Not this time!

    May I also inquire as to your go-to five or six Cydia tweaks/app are?

    I have,
    1- Tetherme
    Have paid for MyWi in the past, but really prefer tetherme as it is the closest in stock appeal.

    2- ResetAllKiller
    Just to prevent mistakes from happening!

    3- SoftwareUpdateKiller
    Same thing.

    4- 2X2 Folder Icons
    Sure makes folders more attractive.

    5- %Hook's Law
    Just for fun, but really miss it when I forget to add it back after a restore!

    6- No Lockscreen Camera and, NoNewsIsGoodNews along with, bolt
    Dresses up the homescreen a bit without the need for Springtomize or Winterboard.

    7- CameraTweak
    Able to dump a few camera apps as this one does nearly it all. (Couple this with Pro HDR found in the iTunes app store and my camera needs are totally set.)

    8- BiteSMS

    9- AskToCall
    No more accidents in calling when I didn't mean to.

    That's really it.
    Nothing, fingers-crossed to upset my iPhone5 into needing a restore in the future.

    Mine are (actually more than 5 or 6 lol)

    BiteSMS
    FolderEnhancer
    F.lux (probably my fave)
    3GUnrestricter
    MyWi
    KillBackground
    NCSettings
    Nitrous
    PandoraSkips
    Resetall Killer
    RespringCasheFix
    Software Update Killer
    Torch
    WeatherIcon 6

    some of those are very low overhead tweaks that keep things in order...With this current combo I have everything I wish were in stock iOS and everything is running smooth....I "plan" on leaving it alone now!
