    I read this today on macworld http://www.macworld.com/article/164...titasking_really_works.html#lsrc.twt_Macworld

    I wanted to know if apps and tweaks like multifl0w actually keep apps running in the background or are they "suspended" and then in a "not running state" if the iOS device needs to reclaim the memory like they would be in a non-jailbroken device? Because if they are actually kept in running in the background that would mean less batter life, right?

    They work just like iOS multitasking. However, using the jailbreak tweak Backgrounder, it can be overridden so that they are never suspended.

    That's great to hear. I am really looking forward to the A5 jailbreak :D
