    Is there a way?
    Winterboard slows down my iPhone too much, and it pisses me off. The dodgy black background is ugly, I know how to change the Dock without WinterBoard, but no idea about the Wallpaper...

    The answer is:

    NO, because Apple wants to keep the Apple Experience identical for everyone. You want to change the background? You'll have to use WinterBoard.

    I never said WinterBoard didn't run fine, I'm saying WinterBoard makes my iPhone slower than it should be, and a slow mobile means sh*t mobile, you can change the dock, icons, everything without WinterBoard, except for the Wallpaper, therefore, Apple are 'f***wits'

    It slows down the iPoT and the iPhone up to 40% and thats a hell of a speed to give up.

    40%? If that was true, more people would be saying Winterboard sucked because it was slow. Notice that isn't happening. It seems that either it's slow on your iPod due to resource allocation issues or it's all in your head.


    Beyond that, just because they lock down the ui doesn't make them f***wits. Paranoid, yes. f***wits, no.
