    I have a JB 3G using redsn0w, and it is kinda slow, sometimes takes two tries to launch apps. Maybe i am used to my old ipt 2g, but i would think that it could be faster. I am wondering if Jailbreakme would make my 3g faster and more responsive than jailbroken with redsn0w. I even tried deleting some launch daemons, and that didn't seem to help. And you should also know that it takes what seems to be 5 minutes to boot. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I'd try installing something called virtual memory. I'd do a google search, you'll learn all you need to know about it.

    Ok. I tried that and that still doesn't seem to help the really laggy feeling.

    P.S. should i use backgrounder or now that i have more memory should i use multitasking?

    redsn0w would be better, but the issue would be that its older. If i were u id remove launch daemons and try to manage memory better, also the virtual memory would help. Dont expect a 3gs out of it or anything but it could possibly help.

    I think turning off spotlight search might help. Settings - General - Home Button - Spotlight Search (I think) - Uncheck all you don't want
