Winterboard and themes are resource hogs, get rid of 'em if you want speed.

It totally worked, I downloaded a terabyte of RAM to my iPhone, and it is insanley fast now, I can play Flappy Bird without any lag!

The iPod Touch 5th generation has a dual core A5 chip from 2011, and it is just not powerful enough to run modern games clearly, especially not on iOS 8. Your device's chip is just too outdated, there is no way to overcome this software-wise.

You can uninstall themes and tweaks you don't need to get a speed bost, but you will most likley keep lagging and crashing, just less often.
