    I have an iPod Touch 2G and was wondering how fast would
    - Stock Jailbroken iOS 4 (without Multitasking and Wallpapers)
    or
    - Jailbroken iOS 4 with only multitasking enabled


    Which one would be faster? If the speed is negligible then I would enable multitasking. If the difference is alot I would disable multitasking during the jailbrek.

    It will make it it much slower if you apples multitasker, if you really want to, use backgrounder.

    i agree with dude 254, i've heard wallpapers is supposed to make your ipod really slow on a 2g so i'd go for the stock jailbroken and then get backgrounder and something like proswitcher. You get more much control over what you want backgrounded this way as well.

    Your iPod Touch will run a whole lot slower if you don't do the proper steps to enable multitasking. I have a 2G and multitasking runs smoothly on my end. My sig has the link to multitasking if you're still interested.

    Actually it only makes it alot slower if you don't close apps out of the background.

    That's easily manageable with the process kill that SBsettings comes with. I really feel that it's foolish to run around with a jailbroken 2G iPod with no multitasking/backgrounder.

    so is it better to disable the native multitasking on my iPod Touch 2G, and just get proswitcher or just don't have multitasking at all

    Keep the native multitasking, you need to delete some core files if you can SSH into your iPod.
