    I have an iPhone 4S jailbroken with Absinthe 0.4.

    I got past the point where Cydia was installed. I started installing various utilities and such like SBSettings. Then I noticed Apps were crashing. I turned on the status bar RAM viewer in SBSettings and noticed the RAM is stedy dropping from ~300MB down to zero. Then whatever is open gets closed out and then it starts all over. It is draining my battery like crazy.

    I went into Cydia and removed everything I had installed except SBSettings. I disabled all Substrate addons, include Activator, PreferenceLoader, and libhide in SBSettings with no change.

    So now I'm basically on a time limit with all my Apps before they crash! Highly annoying when writing a text or something! What should I do? I don't see anybody else having these issues? Should I restore and JB?

    I really don't know what the problems is, but if that happen to me I'll restore and start all over again.

    I personally think there is a memory leak in iOS 5. But that's just me

    :D Sorry but that is very funny Bug... "go go hurry up i only got a few second left"

    Anyway,,, something obviously went wrong and some app went rouge and corrupted something, as mentioned before your best bet would be to restore and rejailbreak.

    Problem solved!

    I figured out the problem. I had my Mail settings to download 200 messages, and I have two different mail accounts. So it was sitting there constantly trying to download from two different Exchange servers until it ran out of RAM. I set it to 50 and now everything has leveled off. I've even added back some tweaks and everything runs just fine! I don't see the need to restore anymore!
