    So what tweaks do you have then? Some tweaks just eat ram. Could also be a JB bug.

    Try anothe restore from new jailbreak it and see how much ram ya got. Something isn't working right and draining ya memory. Guy at work has a 2nd gen touch and he had 45 to 50 memory free at times and has more tweaks than that.

    You'll want to restore and set up as new. This certainly sounds like a JB bug.

    I have never heard of such a bug.

    However, in SBSettings try this:

    Processes -> Close individual apps -> Free Up Memory
    wait a few moments (10 seconds after it shows "Freeing (5 seconds)" ),
    try again:
    Processes -> Close individual apps -> Free Up Memory
    wait a bit.

    Some times it takes a few tries to get the max ram showing.
    If you don't have anything crazy like Winterboard, you should see 140+.
    It may fluctuate a bit, but that's normal.
