    yes i have sbs and it says i have hdd free:57 mb on/11408 mb on var
    available memory: 19 mb

    19 is pretty low. better apps use about 10mb of memory which would put you under 10mb while running an app. that is grounds for crashing. sounds like you need to free up some memory. thats my opinion

    uninstall themes you no longer need.
    or little tweaks you dont use.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    what kinds of stuff do you have installed that would use memory? weather widgets (liveweather) clock widgets, html wallpapers, video wallpapers etc are all common things that use memory as well as daemons and apps you dont need running

    19MB should be more than enough. It's when you get down below 10 that your phone becomes unstable. You need to me a lot more specific about which apps are crashing to try and help. Cydia has gotten MUCH better with the last update. Installer is worthless.

    ^^^ i love how everyone uses the same word for installer...worthless, it really is. 19 is enough if thats where you stand while running the app but alot of nicer apps use more memory. then if you have ireal and you get a message while in an app while low on memory that will kill it sometimes too

    Not since the cleanup. I'm sure I'll get em every now and then, but it's worth it to be able to mess around and customize my iPhone.

    I'll watch what apps specifically have issues.

    Please post what you had RUNNING / INSTALLED before and what you REMOVED and what you have RUNNING NOW.

    Does generally installing a lot of apps slow down the iPhone or only if the apps are active in memory / mobile substrate all the time?

    Is there any other way that something can remain in Memory undetected?

    Is there any other way to Watch Memory / Processes that is better than the SBSettings "Processes" Viewer & Terminator? Are there things INVISIBLE to the Viewer and how to find out and tweak them?

    (MS = Mobile Substrate)
    Apps with keyword 'substrate' in Cydia Search:

    iKeyEx - MS based keyboard
    Mobile Substrate
    PreferenceLoader
    SBCustomIcon
    SkrewCommon
    VoIPover3G
    20 Second Lock Screen

    Currently my Mobile Substrate has the following items listed when attempting to remove: A lot of these were installed assuming that they would not CLOG memory. I havent gotten to evaluate all but I'd rather be LEAN than trigger happy on every new APP to try.

    Can you please suggest which ones to keep and which ones to not?

    Short keys:

    ?? - How can this help? Do I really need it? Should I keep it? Whats the benefit v/s one of the other similar apps?
    NYU - Not Yet Used - Was installed but doesnt come in use as yet.
    Y - Yes. I use it. YY - More. YYY - More More.. etc
    S - Sometimes used
    AED - Aesthetic Element Disabled - Were installed but now disabled to save memory - Is it worth having? If I like one theme can I / should I keep only one installed at a time? Uninstall all? Or are they never loaded into memory?
    ODO - On Demand Only - Might be needed on demand only. Not needed in memory / startup all the time. Your thoughts/ comments?
    NTH - Nice to Have.. Not too heavy I hope?

    Backward Compatability - ?? Helps with older apps but not sure if I still need it.
    Chronus - ?? - ODO ??
    Clippy - YY
