    So Recently I have jailbroke my ipod touch 2g 8gb MC Model ios4. Since Apple doesn`t allow 2g models to have mulitasking, wallpaper, and battery percentage due to RAM and preformance. So when I jailbroke my ipod, I went on cydia and searched Features for (iPod Touch 2G). When I did that i got the full 4.0 function. But the last few days my ipods battery is decreasing fast than usuall. So What`s the problem?

    well according to steve jobs the reason the older devices couldn't have all te features was basically because the "device simply couldn't handle it" so all those features weren't really meant to be, per-say, on your device so installing them would most definitely make performance and battery level much lower as in your trying to use a new an enhanced operating system on an "older device"

    I don't really lose much battery life on my device, mine runs smooth as snow, occasionally textfree freezes and is slow, but everything else runs faster than ever. Make sure all your settings in Spotlight are off as well, that could help it.

    I don't experience any issues.

    Make sure you remove programs from the multitasking bar.

    That'll cause issues.Also if you need higher ram try using VM or Virtual Memory like iMemory Enhancer.

    Thanks for this. I just used it on my iPt. How do you do this on the iPad? I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

    @OP, The answer is in your question. Apple didn't allow those features on those devices because of RAM and performance issues. So if you activate those features on that device, you will most likely have a performance issue.

    I don't understand why they didnt allow battery percentages. I mean how is that going to impact performance.
