    Cydia has always been slow. Try removing some sources. Having too many can make it slower. If you added a lot of sources yourself, then that could be the problem

    Removing ringtones/ themes and other misc crap that I never use from cydia REALLY speeds it up. Useful if u don't use themes or download from somewhere other than cydia...

    Also wondering if they're going to incorporate native multitasking? Would be a great feature..

    I doubt it. Cydia already disables all MobileSubstrate addons so that nothing interferes with installing new packages, and I'm guessing that's why the native multitasking wasn't implemented either.

    Before iOS 4 you were able to use SB Settings though, I think it would be an awesome feature that cydia + rock are probably thinking about..

    Is there a speedy replacement for cydia, it is so slow at starting, then you have to wait for it to update. It's just crazy.
    It's a shame that so many people have worked so hard on all those jail break apps, yet cydia makes it such a chore to get hold of them.

    I'm sure windows 95 use to start up faster than this

    disclaimer : I know the jb community works hard for little pay off, but when items start to become almost unusable it's worth mentioning?

    Cydia was having some problems along with a couple of repos. Should be fixed now. Works great for me.

    I realize I'm a bit late in the forum.
