    Default The "ptpd" process causes my iPod to crash!
    Another edit:After i terminated ptpd it automatically relaunches, but this time only using 0,79mb RAM! But there is still one quite strange thing. My iPod crashed after 3 hours of general use because of low RAM! What is happening?

    EDIT:I removed ptpd from the MemTool blacklist and terminated it. Now my iPod works like a charm! But i have to terminate the process every time my iPod starts up. Any ideas how to get a permanent fix? If you ever get this problem, AS SOON AS YOUR IPOD STARTS UP DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL MemTool FROM CYDIA. The iPod will probably crash again after the installation. Boot it up again and this time go to iFile(Download it if you haven't got it in the same way as you downloaded MemTool). In iFile, go to root/applications/MemTool.app and edit the ProcList.XML. COMPLETELY REMOVE THE ROW WITH THE WORD "ptpd". You can now terminate this process in MemTool! And voila, you can now use your iPod again!

    Hi guys!
    Yesterday I was in my bed playing with my iPod Touch 3rd Generation 32GB Jailbroken(With Blackra1n)because i had a terrible headache. I was browsing Failblog. I didn't really notice that the battery level was critically low, so my iPod Touch shut down; automatically.
    3 hours later I tried to start my iPod Touch again using Blackra1n. I did notice that it took a quite long time to boot it up, normally blackra1n would make my iPod Touch boot in 1 minute, but this time it took 5 minutes or so.
    Well, my iPod Touch booted. As soon as my iPod Touch booted i saw that the RAM was decreasing rapidly, from 120 MB to 10 MB. When it reached 10 MB my iPod Touch just freeze and rebooted ending up in the "connect to iTunes screen". So i opened Blackra1n again and the same thing happened. So i decided to check MemTool. It showed that the ptpd process was draining ALL the RAM memory causing my iPod to crash. I cannot terminate the process. And what IS ptpd? And how do i fix this?

    Thanks for taking your time reading this! And please answer, because im going on a loooooong road trip this saturday!

    Took a picture of the process:

    When i boot my iPhone up it says that the RAM memory is @ 150 MB and the ptpd process is using 20 MB. But after 1 minute the ptpd-process causes my iPod to crash because it has eaten all the RAM-memory!

    Nothing. I really can't figure out what this process does.
    But my iPod is running just fine, i have tried browsing the web, playing 3D games and things like that. Everything seems to work! And a didn't find much information about the ptpd process on google. But ptpd is a system process, so it should be important.
