    Hi all :)

    I want to try new looks & themes, so I am gonna install either DB or WB. I am on 4.3.3 jailbroken

    1. Just installing either of those (& not applying any theme) can make my phone slower or decrease battery ?

    2. After applying theme, any decrease on speed or battery ?

    3. Can it be completely removed if I am not happy ? After removing hoping that my battery & speed will be back like earlier ?

    4. which is good ? DB or WB and why.

    And anything I should know.

    I read somewhere that it will make phone very slow and even after uninstalling it's side effects will be there.

    Thanks in advance :)

    @mods - I couldn't find JB section from tapatalk, please move this thread to correct section.

    One more query :

    Now I moved many apps in one folder & organized them nicely. If I use Winterboard or DreamBoard, those icons arrange as earlier on springboard ?

    Please answer my questions guys !

    If you install Winterboard or Dreamboard without any themes applied you probably will notice a slight small lag, this is due to Mobile Substrate being installed. You probably won't even notice the lag. Depending on the complexity of the theme you probably will see a little lag, not so much on the iPhone 4. If there are widgets with the theme you will no doubt see a difference in battery life. Winterboard and Dreamboard both theme your devices, although DB is a little more complex.

    If you apply a Winterboard theme, yes your apps will remain in the same folders. However, applying a Dreamboard theme will move your apps until your configure them. FYI- After changing the default Dreamboard theme your phone will return to normal or to an applied Winterboard theme.
