    Your Mobile Substrate tweaks play a role in it too, so make sure you're not using anything that hogs too much. Process killer in SBSettings is another good one as well.

    Lol.

    On topic: If you've got all that stuff on there you can expect to run at such low RAM. The 4g iPT just doesn't have as much free RAM as an iPhone will, so you're looking at limiting your mobilesubstrate tweaks (and themes as well if you theme) if you want more free RAM.

    I reccomend you remove all the Siri addons you have, but other than that I don't really see much that could be causing it.


    Removing Siri will free up your RAM by quite a bit though.

    What about winter board themes? Hmm Siri addons I can try. Is it also based on how much space I have left on here? I have 935 mb left and I dont know if that has to do something with it as well.

    That wasn't parroting. Simon said remove Siri itself, I said remove the Siri addons like SiriSports and stuff.

    Try disabling or getting rid of the ones you don't use. WinterBoard can take up some memory too.

    Also try going under the advanced options in WinterBoard and doing the Optimize Themes (1.0) option and it'll hopefully free a bit more as well.

    They stay on the device even if you un-install Siri itself...

    Even if they do not uninstall automatically like winterboard themes do when uninstalling winterboard what would be the point of keeping the siri add ons if Siri is removed? Removing Siri obviously implies removing the add ons as well.

    I would definitely recommend removing Winterboard and themes to free up some RAM. I'm on an iPhone 4 with a lot of mobile substrate tweaks that I can't seem to live without lol, so I try not to theme. Theming bogs my phone down in conjunction with the tweaks. If it's down to tweaks vs themes I choose tweaks to stay

    Basically I'm saying kill the themes. Although getting rid of Siri should give you the best results.

    Well I was just saying that in case he didn't think about removing them with Siri. My point is, I didn't parrot your original post in the first place.

    There's nothing wrong with it....
