    I jailbroke my iPad 1G earlyer and have pretty much installed no apps except for retina pad, full force and folder enhancer and sb settings but yet i'm still noticing slowdowns.

    I have multi touch gestures enabled and when i switch between the apps, its unusable it takes almost 3-4 seconds for the app to respond even if its a simple app like iPod.

    So is this behaviour normal for the old iPad? Is there perhaps something I have which is slowing it down or do the multitouch gestures just work like that anyway.

    Thanks in advance,

    I don't use installous or appsync.... My apps are bought.
    EDIT: Reason i dont use appsync is i had some issues with it and gamecenter before. Plus dont like my free apps mixing with paid apps on itunes. I would prefer to get regular updates as well and not to rely on jailbreak for my apps.

    I had the same as above, and I finally gave up and restored my ipad 1 to an unjailbroken state.

    I still keep my iphone 4 jailbroken and I love it, but like the OP the performance slowdown on my ipad 1 was so noticeable (even with a minimal amount of jb tweaks installed) it just became not worth it anymore.

    I don't have a iPad 1, but on my old iPhone 3G i had a similar experience as well. After upgrading to the iPhone 4 I have had no slowdowns whatsoever.

    What did help somewhat was running sbsettings and occasionally force shutting down apps to free up memory.
