Hey Guys -
I've got an iPad 3 which I've had since around the time it came out. It's currently running 6.1.2 and is jailbroken. I have a few jailbroken apps installed, but not too many and none which should take up too many resources (no themes / winterboard)
The issue I'm having is that it has gotten incredibly slow at many tasks. Apps/Games launch and run fine - but installing them takes forever. I just installed a 12mb app via iFunBox (which is rare that I do it from there) but it took over 20 minutes. A full boot takes over 5. Obviously, a firmware restore would fix this, but I can't do that. I have my hash, but it's not possible, right?
My question is: how can I speed it back up without loosing my jailbreak?
A couple of months ago, I noted every Cydia app I had installed, uninstalled them all, then re-installed the ones I use. This helped a little bit - but - upon reinstall I found that all my old configurations for these apps were still there and had not been reset. Therefore, uninstalling apps doesn't really do a full uninstall.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
