    True, False?
    EDIT: Will primarily use themes, modification of UI through WinSCP, etc.

    False: It's not the jailbreak. It's what you install AFTER the jailbreak.

    this is why you only install as little as you can.

    I've noticed no change in my battery life since jailbreaking.

    As soon as you install mobile substrate or anything like that you can kiss your battery life goodbye.

    False. Mobile Substrate itself won't make it any slower or reduce battery life, it's what you choose to install and what you choose to enable.

    Nope. Running multiple Mobile Substrate addons as I type and it's perfectly fine.
