Now that I am able to monitor the ram on my iPad 3 with the new jailbreak, I can see it is delicious. After a fresh respring I get just over 800mb, with an average app running it stays between 6-700, still more than the total RAM on the iPad 2! Thank you apple, for doing something right. A cydia tweak I would recommend: Daemon Tool from the insanelyi repo. It gets rid of all safe daemons which Increases ram, battery life, and device performance to an extent.
