    I just noticed something weird. After a reboot .... I generally show 50-55MB .. then 1-2 seconds later, down to 32.

    Load Safari .. check SB, down to 24. So Safari takes 8MB.

    Terminate Safari from SB processes --- now 41MB. Hmmm

    I gained 9MB just by loading & terminating Safari. Weird stuff

    Reload Safari ... now @ 28MB, terminate Safafi, back to 40-41MB.

    Reload Safari (leave window open) ... now @ 33MB, terminate .. back to 40-41MB.

    I noticed a long time ago that if I didn't respring my phone after using Safari, my battery would run down faster. Same thing for the music player and mail which I have push turned off and manual fetch set. My most used app is probably Respring.

    Everything seems stable now at 44MB with nothing else running.

    Edit:

    Just checked this out on my 14 year old's 2G iphone. Hes got 2.2 and almost the same setup I have. Winterboard, same theme, etc... SB settings shows 77MB when it opens then pops down to 44Mb.

    I'm using an 8GB 3G version running stock jailbroken 2.2FW using quickpwn.

    I took some screenshots:
    Image 002 is after a fresh respring (no winterboard)
    Image 003 is after running memstatus (shows less then the sbsettings)
    Image 006 is Sbsettings running on top of memstatus
    Image 007 and 008 show the processes in memstatus (it shows hidden processes which sbsettings doesn't).

    It seems to me that Sbsettings and Memstatus don't show the same free memory readout.

    Also I have noticed that if I start Safari and shut it down using the long press (or terminating the process using sbsettings) then the free memory does not come back to where it was before I started Safari (example: before starting safari I have 40MB memory - then after closing safari down I have 36MB).

    FWIW, I noticed that when I had SSH and mobileTerminal installed I was seeing a hit of a few MB's. Since I'm not really pushing the unwieldy envelope nor prefer to use an iPhone for remote admin, I decided to remove them. I can still use DiskAid to get into the iPhone.

    2G 8GB with PwnageTool JB 2.2 Firmware
    Cydia, SBSettings (w/ Process, Fastnotes, LocationServies toggles and about 11 apps on the dock and a couple pages poofed), FiveIconDock
    ~35-37 MB free

    The operation of the iPhone after the PwnageTool JB does seem a little smoother compared to QuickPwn.

    well i went down to 33mb for no apparent reason what so ever, no new apps, nothing running...

    but i did notice it did a slight jump after i went to sbsettings and killed mobilemail and phone apps...

    the memory usage is very strange, sometimes its up, sometimes its down for no apparent reason - makes me question the accuracy

    go figure...i just crashed cydia and i ended up with 10 mbs more ram than i had befor i even started cydia..
    makes alot of sense huh?

    I get like 12 MB Free. Apps crash like no tomorrow. Im gonna figure out how to lighten the Mobile Substrate.

    In the meantime could someone help a guy on windows get a GOOD LEAN Custom IPSW. I dont care about startup screens.

    The thing is I almost NEVER have anything running in PROCESSES except for Phone which even after removing runs again as a default process.

    Which is why I was not happy and confused as to what was RUNNING in the background that was causing this MEMORY LOSS?

    I have a 2G iPhone 2.2 QuickPwn. This LACK of MEMORY did not exist earlier but I am guessing came in to play as I went trigger happy installing a whole bunch of Apps.

    I figured I could somehow CHOOSE to enable / disable which apps would ALWAYS RUN.. in MEMORY at Startup. Is there a nicer way to make that choice?

    I just did a REBOOT and I show the following in SBSettings:

    AVAILABLE MEMORY:
    For a couple of moments after startup it showed 51MB and then in a bit it went to 20 MB > 21 MB and the only PROCESS running is Phone.

    I am trying to maximize available Memory. I'd like to see some step by step guidelines on HOW TO do this and figure out which of the items that SHOW UP in the Memory we choose to keep or remove.

    I've got only 15 MB RAM to 20 MB at times.

    EDIT: I tried to do the REMOVE and it shows tons of items on the list before CONFIRM. Can I selectively remove some of these apps? How do I assess how much RAM each is eating?

    You can selectively remove apps without removing lots of others PROVIDING you remove one that does NOT depend upon others. IE: It's OK to remove Notifier alone, or Backgrounder alone. But removing MobileSubstrate will remove everything that depends up it (like Notifier, Backgrounder, Winterboard, and a long list of others)

    There is no credible information about memory usage / app. Best advise, use a little common sense with what you choose, and only install what you need. Keep the non-essentials to a minimum.

    ssh into your phone and run the following:

    ps aux | awk '{print $4"\t"$11}' | sort | uniq -c | awk '{print $2" "$3}' | sort -nr

    This will show you the percentage of memory used (first column) by each running process on your phone, sorted highest to lowest.

    Mine looks like this.

    root# ps aux | awk '{print $4"\t"$11}' | sort | uniq -c | awk '{print $2" "$3}' | sort -nr
