iOS 4.0 iOS4 App opening animation - how smooth is it?

How is the 'app-opening' animation

  1. Smooth, continuous. Icons swell out at a constant speed.

  2. And initial swell; then a quick explosion.

    I'm trying to figure out if jailbreaking my 2nd generation iPod touch and enabling wallpapers/multitasking affected it's performance.

    I've noticed that when I open an app, the SpringBoard icons initially slowly swell out from the middle, and then quickly explode. I'm not sure if this is how the transition was meant to be, or if it is a result of lag. It's so jerky, it feels like whiplash.

    Can you guys tell me if your animation on iOS4 is like that, or is it a smooth, continuous flow? This would help me to tell if lag while running certain apps is due to the jailbreak or is natural. And it may be useful for other users to know before they jailbreak iOS4 on their device.

    Thanks.

    Well I just rebooted my iPhone after a Cydia update. The first time I opened an app, there was that explosion you're talking about. The next few times I opened an app it was smooth and all of the icons were at a constant speed.

    It's totally smooth on a 2G with Multitasking enabled, but not with the native wallpapers (though it's a little better without the shadows and a bunch of daemons removed). I'm not sure why Apple's method takes so much processing power when the shadows are gone. Nice optimization guys.

    Personally I disabled wallpapers. Waiting for BossPaper.

    How do I disable homescreen wallpapers? I want to compare the difference with them enabled and disabled.

    Edit /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N72AP.plist

    Change

    <key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>
    <true/>

    to

    <key>homescreen-wallpaper</key>
    <false/>

    I am in an iPod touch 3G, could not be smoother.
    I think when Apple said the 2G didn't have enough RAM to run it, they weren't kidding.
