    Which model of iPod Touch is it? Which firmware do you currently have installed?

    Have a look at Speed Intensifier or FakeClockUp on Cydia. Both of these Cydia tweaks accelerate your devices GUI, I personally use FakeCLockUp.

    Uninstall unused Cydia packages to speed it up

    Well, what HAVE you installed?
    Any Winterboard themes? Backgrounds?
    Even if you only loaded a few of these- they can (potentially) cause serious speed and memory issues.

    Also, there are a few tweaks and mods that are designed to improve responsiveness and cut down on lag; though they don't always work terrifically well.

    You could try overclocking it

    It's better to figure out the problem on why it's slow rather than over clocking it

    True

    Does it run faster in Safemode?
    It should cause safemode means no addons running


    FakeClockUp works great

    "fake clock up" and similar mods just shorten the built-in animation delays. Despite the name, has nothing to do with overclocking. Still, it makes your iOS device appear to be noticeably quicker and more responsive.
    ....

    Last I'd heard, actual overclocking was thought to be possible by kernel hackers, but would require dinking around with kernel flags in the very early bootloader, which hasn't been really practical to test since iOS 2.0. Even if some genius did find a way to enable it (and write an LKM (if the hardware actually supported it)), given the tight margins for heat dissipation and battery life, overclocking would be more likely to ruin your machine than help.

    We can't tell you how to speed it up until you give us a list of all the apps you have installed from Cydia. Things that have the most affect will be widgets, animated themes, too many mobile substrate plug-ins.

    umm, when I say almost nothing installed, I mean almost LITERALLY nothing installed except for the basic Cydia components/dependencies. I haven't installed any extra applications from Cydia. If you want a list then here.

    - APR (/usr/lib)
    - APT 0.7 (apt-key)
    - APT 0.7 Strict (lib)
    -Base Structure
    - Bourne-Again SHell
    - bzip2
    - Core Utilities (/bin)
    - Cydia Installer
    - Cydia Translations
    - Darwin Tools
    - Debian Packager
    - Diff Utilities
    - Mobile Substrate
    - Pam (Apple)
    - Pam Modules
    - Profile Directory
    - readline
    - shell-cds
    - system-cmds
    - UIKit Tools
    - zip
    - 7-zip (POSIX)
    - iFile

    And yes, it is laggy. Takes like 5-6 seconds to startup anything. Hangs. Lagging between app switching.

    I have a jailbroken iPad 1 on 4.3.1. It has the same CPU as the touch 4 and I've got 20+ tweaks installed. The only bad slowdowns I get are when opening an app, where the zoom in animation just doesn't show at all, it just jumps to the app, and when I use the ModMyi app while Twitter's in the background. Multitasking gestures, the SpringBoard and other stock apps work just fine, so I'm thinking you might have had something wrong happen while your touch was being jailbroken.
    You can try these tips:

    - restore and rejailbreak
    - use a pagefile. I think the tweak that does this is called “iPhoneVMM,” but keep in mind it will reduce your disk drive's life
    - remove unneeded launchdaemons. There's a thread about it on MMi
    - remove unneeded language packs. Also on MMi
    - open the app switcher every now and then and exit any apps you're not using
    - use Bossprefs or UISettings (iOS 5) rather than SBSettings
    - use MobileSubstrate safe mode when it gets too slow and you don't mind not having your tweaks
    - attempt a downgrade to 4.1, if you don't mind missing out on the new features in 4.2.1 and 4.3

    If all that fails, you're either going to have to learn to live with the slowness or restore and just don't jailbreak it.

    i want to overclock it... that seems like my most favorable option. Has anybody tried overclocking before?
