    I'm not 100% sure what you're talking about but have u tried SBSettings? there is a icon in SBSettings that allows you to see processes of applications (not internal stuff like winterboard and sbsettings and stuff), and you can end them. using that method.

    Also, make sure if you use winterboard you're not using too much skins. That will drain your battery faster than it should be.

    You can try running Activity Monitor in your utilities folder. It will show all running processes on your system.

    I think he meant on the iPhone since this is the iPhone hacks section. Although if it is on the computer, Activity Monitor is the way to go.

    Install SBsetting from cydia, and then install processes for SBsetting

    Only problem with processes is that it doesn't show every process running. Only applications

    You can dl 'top', should be able to get it on Cydia(I think), then SSH into your phone and run it.

    There's a difference between hacking and stealing, at least to some people, but apparently not to you. L

    I dont steal always was able to get anything i want be it from my parents and now by myself.

    But if you are going to get all righteous about something being done wrong then don't do it in a section of the forum where people are doing something that constitutes breaking an agreement. wrong is wrong, sure there are different levels of wrong like killing someone is not as bad as stealing and so on. But its a bit hypocritical to condone one wrong and condem another.

    Your reasoning is bizarre but whatever makes you feel better. Not to mention talking about stealing apps violates forum rules. Oh, wait a minute, I can't condemn violating forum rules in a forum about hacking. What a conundrum.

    Ok, let's nip this one right in the bud:

    Software "piracy" is copyright infringement. It's not theft.

    "Stealing an application" is an absurd concept: unless you physically take the disk(s) that the sole copy of a piece of software is stored on, you can't "steal" software. You *can* copy it without authorization to do so, but that's not theft.

    On a related note: hacking a device isn't at all illegal. Copyright infringement (at least in the US), is. The two have little to no relation to one another.

    Oh, and to answer the OP: SBSettings if you like overly-fancy graphical software, or 'top' or 'ps' if you just want info on what's running.
