I've been having some issues with my verizon 6.1.1 jailbroken phone. It seems about once a day I have to respring it because apps will crash after I open them. I noticed yesterday that when this happens I only have about 30MB of memory available, says SBsettings and after I respring it says that i have about 190MB. So I'm assuming something is wrong here. Battery doctor pro says I'm using 388MB of memory and 3% of CPU. Sbsettings says I have 172MB of available memory.
Here are the tweaks I have installed. I have a 64gb iphone with 4.4 gb free.
Airplane SBSettings toggle
Ask to call
Ask to send
Lockscreen Clock Hide
Low Power Banner
Protube for youtube
Pull to refresh safari
I also recently uninstalled in thoughts a tweak was causing crashes:
Five Icon Switcher
So i think i have a memory issue. after writing this post with no apps open, i have 133MB free says sbsettings and Batterydoctorpro says i'm using 443MB. After free up memory on sbsettings I went to 227MB free.
Any insight from anyone?

Sbsettings has a memory leak maybe gitting rid of that will help. It helped on my iPhone 5

When a tweak has a bug. Just uses more and more ram till the phone or tweak crashes

A new thing I noticed is that sometimes the camera will crash when the shutter opens. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does, i just respring and its fine. This is when I'm taking a picture through the camera app or through a text or what have you. Any thoughts?
A theme could be the issue?

I also have the same problem with my Verizon's iPhone 4s on 6.1.2. I jailbroken and once awhile it would crash for no reason. I removed sbsetting and it still doing it again. I think it best to remove all cydia stuff and try again one at a time to see what is causing it to crash.

I seem to have exactly the same problem on my iPod touch 5G running iOS 6.1. What is strange is that the device started crashing due to low memory out of sudden and not after altering a setting or installing a tweak. What is more, all of the crashes logs starting with "LowMemory" list SpringBoard as the largest process and it must be right - even after closing all processes in SBSettings every few seconds I can't keep my iPod "alive" for more than about 12 minutes without it respringing. To make matters even worse, I've uninstalled basically every tweak I had installed (Without SBSettings to check the RAM; problem persists without it as well though) and it didn't solve the issue at all.
I am now puzzled about what to do and I really do not want to restore my device - I have way too many apps installed. :/

Kevhrof I was experiencing some memory loss as well and we have some similar tweaks installed. It looks like Low Power Banner was the culprit for me so you may want to try disabling that. Losing that tweak wasn't a big deal for me since it isn't that important
