    Hello,
    I could not find the answer to my question anywhere on the internet so I guess I will make a new post on here and hope someone helps.

    So my question is... Do Cydia mods/tweaks (eg. Infiniboard) use any RAM or CPU? Also things like winterboard themes and modifications.

    I want to know if I am better off removing these things to have a better iPhone experience. I am using a iPhone 3G so every bit of RAM and CPU helps.

    Thanks to anyone who can answer my question!

    Some do, yes. Mainly the ones that latch to MobileSubstrate.

    I have noticed some lag after installing some cydia apps... It was bad after I enabled multitasking, I couldn't even play a game and listen to music without my phone freezing up.

    Yes. I think winterboard is the reason for it actually.
