    This is one instance where I agree with Apple not giving the choice. Idiots who don't know better will complain and their tech support will be flooded with "my 3G crashed while multitasking". The problem with making an ultra easy to use UI and product is it attracts people who don't know wtf they are doing.

    won't the iPhones 4.0 multitasking be more efficiant than proswitcher or other multitasking apps?

    if so then I don't get the issue

    my 3g is no speed deamon but withno winterboard installed all useless deamons and langpacks deleted it runs proswitcher just fine, never crashes and mem sits just above 50m, so if this is the case I'll be looking forward to proswitcher being ported to 4.0

    I agree with sziklassy completely, their genius bar would be flooded by non-tech savvy customers.

    And I don't really see what the big deal is, the iPhone 3G is 2 years old, that's an eternity when it comes to technology, just be happy they're even giving you 4.0 when most (all?) android phones released 2 years ago don't have eclair

    Not recommended for iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G. Mainly due to RAM issues which will cause some applications to lag and battery consumption.

    i heavily multitask on my 16Gb 3G and i never have any issues with lag. im 3.1.3 jailbroken (sadly got 3.1.3 after i had to warantee return my phone) and use backrounder with proswitcher. After deleting unneeded launch daemons and language packs, i hit about 70mb free and can easily backround mail, safari, TomTom, ipod, and be playing a game like fat-a-pult with no lag at all. Yes im 100% sure i have a 3g, not 3gs.

    i see no issues with multitasking on older devices especially if the 4.0 MT is supposed to be better than backrounder.

    It sounds to me like you modified your OS. This is fine, but Apple of course will not do this. Hence, your statements are largely irrelevant.

    I suppose we must consider ourselves lucky iPhones are powered by flash memory. If it was magnetic hard drive then we wouldn't ever dream about multitasking.
    No need to thank me, I'm not a helpful person.

    You'll want to upgrade, the lag will be annoying on a 2G/3G iPhone. The new phone will kick trash anyway

    are you stupid why would you let this out so early! now i bet they will patch it so the underclass devices have a seperate download. im really hoping for this not to be found and eventually get a package in cydia for many users to easily use. i know i could do this myself and blah blah blah, but it takes about a week of knowledge to be able to navigate your iphone/ipods directory and succesfully change things without messing something up. and many users would rather just download something.

    also, i really think cydia could run faster and i'm really disappointed cydia still runs like a dinosaur.

    well, thats debatable, obviously apple most likely refined multitasking so it runs much lighter than current multitasking apps in cydia, and those run pretty smooth on simple apps. as long as you don't have to many apps at once or have really big ones open at the same time. I think they just don't want it for the weaker devices because they don't want you to open a bunch of stuff at the same time and run the risk of a springboard crash.
