    You know the one that shows processes and what it is taking up much memory and CPU because I want to see what I can quit to lengthen my battery but want to remain jailbroken.

    Thanks

    Look like iStat will do what you want, doesn't even require a JB. Though I can't see from the screenshots whether or not it lists how much RAM processes are using.

    All i want is a app that tells me my system processes and whats raping my CPU/battery. And it can quit them like force quit them from the app.

    I guess you know about sbsettings and the Processes button which shows the running Apps. It doesn't show the actual processes but you can quit the running apps and there's the "Free up memory" button...

    Maybe that's a start...

    'Mobile Terminal' and the top command may show you the memory hogs.

    I'm also interested in an Activity Monitor like App. So if there's something like that...

    Install top in cydia and then run it in terminal.
