    I've have a lot of lag on my jailbroken 3G, mainly when exiting apps. I only have a minimum of things installed(SBSettings, Reflective dock, and a few custon SMS themes).
    I was wondering, with the 3GS' beefed up CPU and RAM, is jailbreak lag a thing of the past, or is it still present?

    I haven't noticed any. But I notice things are def faster (closing apps, Cydia, etc) given the 3GS' faster processor, etc. :)

    the 3gs jb does everything 3-4x faster than a jailbroken 3g.

    it puts the 3g to shame no doubt.

    Obviously not as fast as stock, but my JB 3GS is world's faster than my friend's JB 3G

    If have a 3g and 3gs. The jailbroken 3g is painful. The 3gs handles jb beautifully. Don't notice any lag and if I even think it's lagging I fire up the jailbroken 3g

    If you want to jailbreak and can find a way to upgrade to the 3GS, you will not be disappointed. It's like removing the 4 cylinder engine from your Civic and installing a V8. With a supercharger.

    I do notice slight choppiness here and there after jailbreaking, but it's very minimal and still no lag to speak of. Everything opens lickity split just like before. It's beautiful...sniff sniff...sorry getting a little choked up there. :)

    I'm running SBSettings, Intelliscreen, Backgrounder, 3G Unrestrictor, and 20 Second Lock Screen. Certainly enough going on here to challenge a 3G, but no sweat for the 3GS.

    On a side note, I did uninstall OpenSSH because for some reason it seemed to be impacting performance, reliability and RAM a little more than I'd like. It might have been my imagination, but taking it off did help. I also didn't like how toggling it off with SBsettings doesn't stick on a reboot. So I figure I'll just re-install it whenever I need to SSH, then take it off after.
