    My iphone 5 started rebooting this weekend. I installed "ncRam for Notification Center" to be able to see my free memory and if it was going down before the reboots. I have put the phone into safe mode to see if that would stop the reboots but they keep happening. The phone starts with about 690 MB after a reboot and will go down until it crashes. There are low memory crash logs in the /var/logs/crashreporter folder that say that springboard was the largest process. I don't know how to interpret the data after that in the crash log, so I don't know if it can tell me the culprit or not. I've attached one of the most recent low memory crash reports, any help in interpreting it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Or are there other crash logs I should be looking at to help figure out what is causing this?

    Is there anyway to free up memory on iOS 6.1 WITHOUT installing SBSettings or a respring? I have no need for it.

    Do you have Auxo installed? I find that it uses 30-100 MB extra (leak?)

    I installed Clean Memory from cydia to free up RAM as I didn't like installing SBS. it's not in full English but I navigated my way through it easily.

    Do you by chance have Auxo installed? I have been having a similar problem since the latest update a few days ago. The devs are aware of the problem and are working on a fix.

    I have one of those in BatteryDoctorPro actually but it doesn't free up memory, just kills the open apps.

    ----------

    What repo can I find that in?

    I don't have auxo installed. Was there a mobile substrate update this weekend?

    ----------

    I might be incorrect in saying that it happens in safe mode. It happens even when I boot up with the volume up button held, which i think disables mobile substrate, but I could be wrong about that. Was that the update that allowed notifications to be seen on customized lock screens?

    I also forgot to mention that right before the crash happens the icons for apps that are in folders will be missing. I will open the folder and all the app names will be there with no icons above them, if that info helps anyone in pinpointing the issue.

    I've narrowed it down to mobilesubstrate. Anytime a tweak is installed that uses mobilesubstrate, the low memory crash happens. Unfortunately I'm probably going to have to restore as new and rejailbreak to see if that fixes it since most tweaks depend on mobilesubstrate.

    well it's still doing it with a fresh jailbreak and no apps installed and a couple tweaks that require mobile substrate!

    Yes. The dev of iCleaner has the same "free memory" function of sbsettings as a standalone app. It's on his personal repo. You just set an activator action to use it. Careful though. It's the same as sbsettings in that if you use it too many times in a row you'll crash the springboard. So don't use it 3 times in a row.

    I have never used it. I'm in the "free memory is wasted memory" camp. I also don't kill my apps. The only exceptions to this is when I'm about to play a huge graphics intense game like infinity blade. In this case, I'll close all my apps to quickly free up the memory for infinity blade. The only other time ill close an app is if its frozen or has a bug. But outside of that I don't ever really free up memory or close apps.

    If you want his repo just let me know.
