    This is normal behavior. Using SBSettings to monitor ram usage doesn't tell the whole story. Multitasking allows currently-non-running apps to use that otherwise unused and wasted ram. iOS will discard those and free memory when needed.

    If ram decreases over time when nothing else is going on ... you have a problem. Maybe a winterboard theme ?!?

    i understood the first time you said it! so youre saying 10mb ram is normal, programs shutting down by themselves too untill the what every system reboots?

    is there a way to see which process uses all the ram??
