    Hi,

    I have an iPod touch 8GB 3rd generation jailbroken but when I compare it to my friends' ipod touch which are 2nd gen and jailbroken aswell my one is slower. Does anyone know why it is so and how can I make it faster?

    Thank you

    It may be the amount of things you have installed or if you have themes and they dont or you have backgrounder and they dont.

    Compared to themes, backgrounder and proswitcher and other things of that nature take up more memory. Thats probably why your iPod is slower.

    In addition to what bobby681 said, running things in the background causes your iPod to run slower. You may have some things pre-set to run in the background. That can seriously slow down your iPod.

    Pointing out, the 8GB 3rd 3rd gen is really the 2nd gen. It just is branded as 3rd. But has the same features and specs as the 2G. So there would not be a massive speed difference due to the same processes and RAM. But as others said. Due to amount of apps in background etc.
