    I think you have "themers phone". Typical with all the file mods/widgets/ and respringing. I'll bet a fresh restore would move that number way up.
    I restore my phone about once a month it seems now just to clean it up.

    Haha, i am planning to get iphone 5 and paying full price at apple store as i don't want a contract.
    I noticed with Contract for the same amount you pay on your bill, you do get less data usage as compared without a contract.
    Is apple selling factory unlocked iphones in the states ?

    I keep all my original phones, have sold others that my family has, I even still have my original first iPhone 2G on 1.1.4 with Installer, no Cydia yet then.

    regarding this daemon, i would like some clarifying. does this daemon affecting appz such as remote wipe for example from "Find My iPhone"? or not? thanks

    com.apple.mobile.obliteration.plist - This daemon wipes the data
    partition of your device. (Source) This will be used if you remotely wipe your
    phone via Exchange, or if you use Settings > General > Reset, or if you set your
    device to wipe itself after a certain number of failed passcode entries. If you
    don't use these features, you can delete this daemon.

    At what point does RAM become a problem ?

    I mean I have a 4S and without removing anything I have about 250mb left, so is that ok ? Or should I have more and would my phone work faster the more RAM that is free.

    Confused

    With a 4s, currently I don't think u have much to worry about on that...processor super fast and mem to spare...as long as u don't have tons of huge gaming apps open running in background while playing angry birds and streaming video all at the same time...I think you'll be okfor a bit...

    250MB is around the average amount of RAM the 4S should have without any apps running in the background, during this "idle" time particular processes are constantly running the processor is also constantly fetching data from RAM

    But just after a short while, it lessen, is that normal? or it must stay as what it is after killing all processes.. Now, im lucky to get 312 mb max after some new tweaks installation..

    But i just want to know why when i reboot (turning off & on) my iDevice, it taking too long before it fully opens, apple logo then theres spinning wheel like its loading, sometimes it repeats, and then it will fully open. But when i respring, im not having any problems.. what would be the problem?

    I start at about 125 since I have so many tweaks, then I dip to about 75, and it keeps getting lower with whatever I do. Spire permanently screwed my firmware, which explains a lot of it. I just haven't decided to restore it.

    If i want to restore, is there a way that i can save all my cydia tweaks installed? So that i will not start all over again. what about the other apps?

    I have my old 2g (lovely hairline crack on glass and wifi is dodgy), my 3G (home button dodgy), my 3GS (mute switch dodgy) and my iPhone 4 (battery is poo - replacing this myself). All have Cydia as I arrived onto the jailbreak scene post installer! Intend to buy iPhone 5 straight out also as I don't want a contract.

    As for RAM I notice slow down and crashes under 50mb. If I stop all processes then > 300mb free running sbsettings / weekillapps / gridlock / activator / barrel / multi-icon mover. Need to restore as I get general slow down since iv been on 5.0.1 for ever!
