    Every time I've used a 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2 jailbreak (iPT gen 1, iPhone, iPhone 3G) the entire device slows down. A fresh jailbreak (as in no apps installed) makes everything 10x slower. I tried restoring, then straight after restoring going to jailbreak, and everything slows down. Cydia takes 1 min. 45 sec. (Oh yes, I timed it on every device and averaged it) to start up, and another 30 sec. to refresh sources. Settings takes 20 more seconds to load than it did non-jb'd. Everything is slower. I love jb, but it's sooooo slow! I don't remember it being this slow back in the 1.1.4 days. Anybody else have this?

    Stop using 2.0. Upgrade to 2.1/2.2.

    ... By 2.0 he obviously meant 2.x, just look at his device, it's a jailbroken 2.2 iPhone 3G.

    Umm, I just timed and after a fresh reboot my Settings.app takes 3 seconds (no joke) to load up. Cydia takes 14 seconds to open up, and the "and another 30 sec. to refresh sources" relies on your internet connection. Refreshing sources for me takes < 10 seconds.

    Wow. Well I have a fast Internet connection, 50 mb/s according to speedtest.net. I don't know why everything is so slow. Rebooting doesn't help. It's not just the 3G, it's all the devices I've tried. Kind of makes me want to go back to 1.1.4... which I can't do.

    Thats strange. I recently jailbroke mine and it appears to run at the same speed it did before.
