    I have an iPhone 3GS and I have heard that jailbreaking slows it down and such. However, I need the jailbreak because I use several apps such as Winterboard, not for themes, but for just a different slider and the "User Wallpaper" function. (Not using unlock btw)

    Anyway, I wanted to know if things like CyDelete are significantly slowing down/eating up my battery? I use the Winterboard for the User Wallpaper and the SBSettings. I will keep Winterboard even if it slows it down, but I would consider removing SBSettings and CyDelete if they make a big impact. Do they?

    Thanks

    *By the way, after a respring/reboot, I usually have 160MB of free RAM.

    You will have plenty enough RAM to keep them going.

    No. CyDelete and, for the most part, SBSettings sit dormant until you explicitly trigger them.

    The rumour that jailbreaking slows iPhoneOS down is exactly that. A rumour. Fear, uncertainty and doubt spread by people who have no idea what they're talking about.

    The more you know!

    Jailbreaking itself doesnt slow it down but when you have a lot of extensions running such as SBSettings or CyDelete it will use more resources and there for slow down a little.. But not so much on the 3GS.. That was more of a problem on the 3G because of the low RAM and slower processor.. You wont find a big impact on the 3GS
    Battery neither
