JailBreaking seems "dead" but really isn't. That is huge compared to how many people still can JailBreak right now. I mean that is most of the people who still can JailBreak so that's a whole lot. And it'll have a huge spike with the untethered 6.1 JailBreak coming soon and again with the BootRom coming within the year as well.

Yeah, there's definitely no news of a bootrom exploit coming out at this point in time.

I'm curious to know how much RAM you have free after a reboot &/or respring on your device. My phone runs fine most of the time, but admittedly I use KillBackground along with a RAM-freeing tweak ALL THE TIME.
I'd like to know just how much memory all this junk uses and I'm too lazy to uninstall it all for a test
I've got 270MB free after a respring and that jumps to ~300 when I run my FreeMemory tweak. For comparison.

iOS is built to recycle your memory so when you need more than what's available it will shut down the older apps.
Keeping things stored in memory can help gain battery life. Because your device does not have to do as much as it does when it actually has to load things from scratch.
Think of it this way. Your brain stores information in your memory. Think about how difficult life would be if you kept wiping your memory. Lol.
As long as there are minimal active processes stored memory is really doing other other than temporarily storing information

This is one of the biggest features of iPhones that set them apart from the "others". Why on earth would you want to inhibit its functioning? Just so you can see a larger number? I guess some people don't realize how these phones really work. They just apply some kind of old school knowledge to it.
Well said SubyWidget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

As a base of comparison so everyone can see. Below is a screen shot of my available memory on my iPhone 5.
The way memory works on an iPhone is when you open a program and close it out it saves the apps "state" in your memory. This is literally just stored information so your device can "remember" where you left off.
These are not active processes. Now there are apps that are poorly coded and can keep draining you in the background, but again it has nothing to do with the memory being used and everything to do with that its an active process using processing power.
As you can see from my screen shot I only have 34mb free on my iPhone 5. It's obviously not jailbroken and I get around 9 hours of usage out of the battery and it runs just as fast as it does on a fresh boot.
Just like king said. This is why iOS back grounding process is awesome. Because you really don't need full processes running in the background on an phone. Some would fully disagree with me but this is my opinion and its not going to change. Your all welcome to have your own
Also apple is really smart when it comes to music. Rather than keep the full app running in the background. When you exit out it only keeps what it needs to play music going. This helps minimize battery drain and also helps not waste processing power so it can be used else where.

Hey guys, will there be a tethered ios 6.1 as soon as the fw comes out ( for iphone 4 ) or will we have to wait for limera1n to update there botroom exploit?

Thanks for the feedback folks. I'll keep it in mind and slow down on the freeing the RAM. It's become a habit because I was of the understanding the battery drained quicker if too much was stored in the memory.
I'll leave it be and see how it goes

I do believe that the ability to jailbreak is quickly coming to an end. As newer more secure iOS's and devices are released the older devices will fall off apples supported list and then all they'll have are what I like to call Commi phones (apple tells you how, what, where, and when you can use it).
