    Yes. They use memory, which leads to some amount of lag (only a little, unless you have an animated wallpaper, then a lot)
    However, you have an ipt3, so why do you care?

    Well the themes themselves don't cause the lag, the actual Winterboard app does, as does the use of blank apps (for iNavs etc) but not the actual themes.

    Keyboards still aren't themeable in a convenient way as far as i know.

    yup animated wallpapers and blank icons take up alot of memory. i remember using an iNav theme which needed only 3 apps per page with everything else blank icons and it was so damn slow. i wish keyboard themes worked.

    agreed... some of the 12 year olds in here need to ask Santa for a dictionary this Xmas. And read it.

    The "gay tethered gay jailbreak" worked great for my iPt 3G. Sure, it's a hassle to gay tether when ever i have to reboot, but i don't need to reboot as often as i thought. This gay jailbreak works fine, even if it is gay tethered. LOL

    Try it out flexxx ...

    yeah, about all of that, none of my keyboard themes work with winterboard on 3.1.1. they worked on 2.2.1. can i still use keyboard themes? i can see what u said about lag ( i lost a WHOLE FPS on the cube shooter on an ipt 3G. It went down from 30 to 28-29. :<. dont even mention my 1g. i lost 5-6 fps on that thing. i have an animated wallpaper. the wallpaper keeps fading between two images every 10 sec. How does winterboard itself cause lag? can i install a theme and them uninstall winterboard, yet keep the theme?
