After installing all the essential tweaks in Cydia....How much free RAM does everyone have after a fresh reboot and before launching any apps? I'm getting around 260-270MB. Just wanted to see what the norm was.

I have never bothered checking it but to answer you question, ~265MB free!

I'm on an i4 and after a reboot, I get around 315mb. If I hit free memory after some usage, I get around 350 with 371 as the highest I've gotten.

Why do you wish to get that number?
Dont be OCD, stop worrying about free memory and enjoy your phone.
Unused memory is wasted memory.
Oh i agree. I am not really worried about it. I dont/haven't noticed any slow down of my device since the JB. I just saw i could check where i was at with intelliscreenx.

At the iPhone hacks section.
Jailbroken phones aren't very good with memory management.
They're not?
First time I heard that.
The iOS doesnt manage the memory any longer when the phone is JB?
Offcourse it also depends on what JB packages you install, buggy or resource hog ones will slow it down.
But like I said I wouldnt sit there and worry about that number all the time.

Fresh respring, 269MB but I do have a bunch of plugins running.

If anyone is worried about speed, you should try FakeClockUp. I have it set at 40%, soooo much better than stock!

Is it like FakeClockUp?

Edit: never mind. You used a different name like Speed boost or something then edited it before I quoted you :p

Ya sorry about that. Last time I had a jailbreak was on the 3G and I used one called SpeedIntensifier back then. Got confused :p

I don't feel like they are. It seems the OS doesn't release memory as well in a jailbroken state.

Restore it, choose set up as new then re-jailbreak.
Keep your Cydia hacks to a reasonable number.
An iPhone4 has plenty or RAM and processor speed to run newest firmware jailbroken.
