    Rejailbreak, restore and setup as new and don’t load as much crap on from Cydia.

    Turn it off, then back on. Should fix your problem. If not, then just back-up, restore, rejailbreak.

    I have the same problem on jb 3.12 3g.

    Should I shift click restore and then restore from backup?

    Once a week or so mine will start doing that. I completely power it down by holding down the sleep/wake button and then restart. It clears the...ram (?) or something. It's always fine after that.

    I suggest anyone jailbreaking set show memory on status bar via SBSettings, so you know when you’re getting low on memory. You can use Kirikae to choose to shut down stuff that’s running in the background and clear some memory or use a memory clearing app.

    LOL...what's really awesome is not providing ANY information on your phone model. Not to mention, what jailbroken software you installed.

    if it is a 3G phone, don't put winterboard on it. i had that on my 3G and everything I did was lagging. as soon as i took it off it worked much better.

    Yup, don't try to put Winterboard on anything other than a 3GS. It lags the hell out of the phone.

    I can confirm the restarting option. I use SBSettings to know how much free memory the phone is running. I highly recommend installing this first after a jailbreak to see how much free memory your phone has with nothing running, ie winterboard or backgrounder. I also use it to restart my device every night, which has also helped.

    You should generally restart your phone once a day if its jailbroken.

    Does sbsettings use much battery or memory? I'm thinking about downloading it after reading this thread.

    Not that I’ve noticed. It’s more Winterboard that runs the battery down, but even then it’s not much.

    Thanks! I went "winterboard free" last month and have been happy with the decision. I like all of these toggles with sbsettings though and I would like to monitor memory usage. I think I'll go ahead and download it :)

    But you lose so much without Winterboard. For one thing, I hate the slide to unlock, and with Winterboard I can tap to unlock.

    I use lockinfo so luckily I can use his slide to unlock subs (or none, which is what I use). And I theme lockinfo manually which isn't too much work. I do, however, really really miss having custom app icons. I got so used to having the suave smaller icons that I hate the way the default icons look now!

    I was using Backgrounder and ProSwitcher and it was making every app close a second or two longer than it should, take a second or two longer to be accessible from Springboard, and other things. And I didn't find enough use out of it to really make it worth it. Removed Pro Switcher then Backgrounder, nice and peppy as it used to be.

    I never understood how winterboard can drain battery?
