I have a brand new 3g that is not even activated yet. If i want to get these speeds. according to the theory, i should quickpwn from the get go(i have a mac) and then be fine ? i wont need to restore cause my phone is brand new right ?

First off, you're supposed to be using quickpwn for this method, not winpwn.
Secondly, if your battery life is that bad you might want to look into a replacement battery. (This is of course assuming that it does actually suck, and that you're not weighing it down with constantly running applications.)

We'll I have to say I have watched this thread over the past couple weeks and was a huge doubter that this was going to work. I have had horrible speed problems after upgrading and it got so bad that it would take me almost 10-20 seconds each time to open up the camera to take a picture or to respond to text messages and to load up my email took forever. I was sooo frustrated, so I almost went back to non-jailbroken but decided i would try this tonight and give it one last shot.
If you follow his instructions this FIXES THE SPEED PROBLEMS!!!!!!! WOW, its back to blazingly fast and I can't thank you enough. Everything loads up instantly like it was not even jailbroken before.
Thanks so much!
Now if I can only figure out why the battery doesn't last any longer then 6-7 hours simply sitting in my pocket with no wifi, location services, or 3g!! battery sucks, I will see if this helps any with the battery as well.

i'm going ot have to look into this.
I just refreshed my old 2G with a clean install of 2.1, i ran pwnage. unlocked (no sim card, but i was pleased to find out, if i can use the sim from my 3G on my 2G) nevermind that but
i did notice it was MUCH faster then my 3G which is also 2.1 jailbroken using winpwn.
so your suggesting that quickpwn will make it even faster? i might try it out later

I just did this today and I have noticeably faster apps. I still am fully themes with Winterboard, many ape installed, five icon dock and categories.

^clone phones, woahz. Jumped right into science fiction there.

att will kill both if the catch them on at the same time.
10-27-2008, 01:28 PM #29
yea you're probably right. the 2g sucks anyways lol.

Sprint also has a habit of deactivating entire accounts AND phones if you clone your phone and they catch both phones turned on (even at idle) at the same time.

Since you'd be setting it up as a new phone, how do you prevent iTunes from returning to default status, so you won't have to re-select from your entire library just the songs/videos you want to sync?

I had never jailbroke my 3g before and I recently did it with quickpwn about a week ago but I am already experiencing declining speed problems...I never used winpwn or anything. I dont see why trying this would make it faster if I basically did the same thing already but if you have any ideas let me know.
10-27-2008, 04:37 PM #33
I haven't noticed any significant speed increases through this.

Not to be disrespectful to the OP, but I got the slowdown problems even after restoring to stock, quickpwning the phone, and then setting up as a new phone (so not even bothering with my old data with SSH).
This means that the phone lags even with the minimum installed, in fact from my tests the phone lags even without jailbreaking.

i got a few issues maybe someone can help. first off quickpwn seems like it freezes, i run it for a littel bit and it doesn't progress.
also with pwnage, i keep getting error 2001 when trying to connect my iphone to itunes. Wtf.

How would one go about doing this with the 2.2 update out now?
11-23-2008, 09:19 PM #39
Thanks worked for 2.2, i noticed slight speed improvments including faster respring and general faster app launches
11-23-2008, 09:33 PM #40
Well, there is also a huge improvement to winterboard. Runs significantly faster than previous versions.
