    If you are one of the many people that experience lag after installing WB onto their ios5 device try this;

    Install Barrel through cydia.
    This tweak costs money but it is a guaranteed fix, even setting it on normal settings fixes the lag

    Did the opposite for me lol.. I noticed switching between pages cause bad lag right after downloading winterboard, even after disabling summer board mode. Barrel made a very noticeable difference

    It works coz barrel installs icon support. The result is nil lag.

    I actually stayed away from winterboard because of this slight lag. I know it doesn't bother everyone, but it definitely bothered me enough to not use it. And I know it bothers some people to the point where they won't even upgrade to ios 5 because they can't use a lagless winterboard. But I'm so glad I ran into this solution! Who would've thought this backwards solution would work? :P Now I can enjoy using winterboard on ios 5. THANK YOU! And yes, I hope the word spreads around.

    Does this fix the slight lag when swiping down the notification menu also? I had winterboard and my phone was silky smooth but I had to restore now i get lag from notification menu even with barrel installed.

    EDIT: Okay I went into winterboard Advanced (for themers) then turned off debug logging and record uIimages. Are those suppose to be on.

    My notification center only lags when I tweak it or use a theme on it. I am now using custom nc wallpaper to theme it and it doesn't lag at all.

    All u have to do is have ssh or ifunbox on the computer to access ur ipods raw files then download WinterBoard 0.9.3901 | iWatcher.net
    then drag it into private/var/tmp then go on ur ipod and open ifile (download it if u dont have it) and go to the private/var/tmp and press ur file then click installer then press done on top right when its finished and reboot ur ipod and u will have a working winterboard with no lag! hope this helps!!
