    Default iPhone 2G/3G RAM Increase
    Is there any SAFE ways to make an iPhone run faster (clear up RAM usage)? It bugs me that most of my apps take about 8 seconds (sometimes more) to load up on my shiny new 16GB iPhone 3G. Ive already removed/disabled launch daemons, deleted unneeded language files, but mp phone STILL runs slowly. Anybody know of a good way to increase RAM? Thanks in advance.

    8GB iPod Touch 1G: 1.1.1 > 1.1.2 > 1.2 > 2.0 > 2.0.1 > 2.1 > 2.2 > 2.2.1 > 3.0 > 3.0.1 GM RedSn0wed
    16GB iPhone 3G > Sold $375 > iPhone 4: 4.2.8 > 5.0
    32GB iPad: 3.2 > 3.2.1 > Traded For MacBook > Traded + $500 For MacBook Pro

    well, you apps don't take so long to load because of RAM but because of the processor speed. so clearing up RAM simply won't help you here. to get a really snappy iPhone experience I'm afraid you need to get a 3GS.

    sucks, but I think there is no way. maybe a restore of uninstalling some things like winterboard etc. will help. everything that doesn't run in the background is good.

    if you can afford it and your 3G slowness is bugging you, then why not. I didn't regret it, it's really much faster

    Hi, this is my first post and I'm not sure if I can talk about any other repos but I will give this a try. I went to cydia and added "vnmagic" repo. Then installed "free ram" off of cydia then rebooted my phone. After rebooting went to sbsettings/processes/free memory this takes about 30 secs after you free memory. But available memory went from about 60mb after respring to 80mb. Hope this helps

    Please disregard the post above
    THIS COULD DAMAGE YOUR PHONE BY CREATING A SWAP FILE. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
