    Hey mods, is it typical to remove a thread with a link to a vid that I did showing my JB i vs non JB i? Esp seeing as I was called a liar by another MR member because I said mine was as fast or faster at times? How about a PM letting me know why it was removed. I did read the "forum rules" and other than calling out the guy that called me a liar (which IMHO didn't violate the rules) I in no way broke them.

    Any who...... sense I was called a liar for saying my i wasn't "slower" because of JB and adding apps, I made a vid to prove it.

    yep there was like a one second lag there, but not enough to make me unjailbreak.

    As I said in the first thread on this (which got deleted?):

    I noticed when you opened the photos app, you have a lot more albums than your mom does. It's therefore a bigger photos database which the iphone needs to load up compared to your moms phone, this would explain why it's taking longer to load.

    It might be similar for the SMS application, not sure how much of a heavy texter you and your mom are though!

    So based on this, I really don't think it makes much of a difference if you JB or not.

    Well ..this test would be a nice one to the statistical distortion department on an apple fanboy's head, here's why:

    1) You got about 5 photo albuns in Photos app on the jailbrake iphone and nothing in the original firmware iphone.
    2) You have a conversation going on in the jailbrake iphone vs the original firmware.
    3) The observer don't know how many times, you opened another apps OR what apps are open in booth phones;

    4) By consequence of 3 the remain show off of "delays" can't be a proof for anything.

    I do have 5 sms conversations on-going with about 800 or so text/month, mom for the most part does not text.

    I do have 473 photos on 5 albums + camera roll, mom maybe has 30

    Only thing I can think why the first one was deleted... I did call TS out in the title and I did have that a certain fan boy could "kiss my..... you know" (exactly how it was written) in the description of the video on youtube. Both of which I changed so other than that???

    Guess TS hasn't been on MR today to respond :rolleyes:

    I see the lag. Is there something else I'm supposed to be looking for?

    By the way.. Safari runs in the background, so you won't see any lag there because technically it's still running when you tap it. You basically proved my point there. I see about 1 second lag almost always. Nice video though. Thanks for proving that jailbreaking and installing winterboard causes lag.

    By the way, when you opened up the weather channel app, the unjailbroken iPhone was ready first... then it was just internet speed that slowed it down. That has nothing to do with WinterBoard. As we can see... the App started responding right away with the spinny wheel before the jailbroken iPhone did. Since the weather channel app doesn't have a default.png image, when the black screen goes away, technically the app is finished starting up.

    Jailbreak does not slow things down. Having more files on the device, and having certain Jailbroken Apps installed slow the phone down.

    If you had 2 phones with nothing on them (just the native apps), but one is running a custom firmware, there would be no difference.

    I've tried that... there is a *slight* difference. I didn't install Cydia or Installer either.

    There is NO difference. A "slight" difference? Give it up. My jailbroken iPhone is just as fast as a non-jailbroken iPhone. Period. :apple::apple:

    Now fanboy says when the app is not open its really "open" lol. An app is open when you can see what it has to offer and can "use" the app. TWC opened faster on the JB phone.... I know it's hard to be owned in front of all the other fan boys but ffs, at least admit it when you are. Anything else just makes you look stupid.

    guy: I'm not the one complaining about it
    girl: Who is
    guy: idiots on a website


    I agree with you that jailbreak vs non jailbroken phone are about the same speed though and just having winterboard alone does not slow down your phone.

    that said it's not that serious though

    LoL, not just a girl.... that was mom!

    TS, you said twc app was opened faster on the non jb.... ok Ill say sure as long as you admint that jb makes your internet faster seeing as my 3g was next to my mothers 3g, both on the same internet and mine was faster. I also noticed you said nothing about the amount of photos I had compared to the non jb and the number of sms compared to the non jb...... of course that would further prove you wrong and we know you can't admit that.

    Ok, I'm done with you now... just needed to put this issue to bed once and for all.

    Wow thanks for making the video! That's given me a better perspective, and yes, it is a VERY significant amount for load time for me. I really hope they add landscape texting so i don't need to jailbreak my iphone lol.

    The weather app opened and started running before the jailbroken one, but it was slower to DOWNLOAD the information from the Internet. Internet speeds vary, but the app itself started working before the jailbroken iPhone. All of your apps opened slower on the jailbroken phone so I have no idea how you still think it's the same.
