    I've noticed that the new way Cydia updates the springboard is very slow. Am I the only one that notices it. It almost takes 5 mins, and the whole time my ipod is un-responsize. I think they should go back to the original unless if they figure out how to make it faster.

    If you do that, you're going to get a spinning wheel of death.

    Cydia installs slowly now because it has to Install applications now. It works the same way as AppStore needs to install applications. So bear with it, and let it install. Else, you run a very strong risk of getting a SWoD.

    Not the installation, the respringing process.
    It happens also when i respring manually through ssh.

    Respringing in general takes longer on 2.0. Try the "Respring", "iReboot", or "Power Tool" app and you'll see it takes longer than 1.1.x.

    After exiting Cydia, just let it sit for a minute until you can change pages. If you want to know exactly when you can use it again, after exiting, swipe once or twice (it won't work), and wait. When it's finished respringing, it will flash to a different page by itself.

    well i definitely don't want the spinning wheel of death to happen to me. i suppose waiting for my ipod to unfreeze will have to do..
