The title explains it all, I just want to know if there is any way to speed up my iPod 4. I have iCleaner Pro and I have cleaned all my iPad images, iTunesArtwork files, 4" display images, all the languages, keyboards, and voice control languages except English, and that still only gives me about 30-45 MB of RAM on my home screen. If possible, please don't tell me that WinterBoard slows down the device with heavy theming, I already know that, and I have some themes that I do not want to remove.

In your seconds question,you explained that you installed various themes that imitate iOS 7.These themes and tweaks take a lot of memory.

The iPod Touch 4th generation by it self has only 128MB of RAM,and combined with these various themes,the A4 chip just can't handle the performance.

You have 2 options:Dont erase your themes that imitate iOS 7,but give up your memory,or delete all Winterboard themes to regain your memory.From experience I can tell you that winterboard took a lot of my RAM,but tweaks like Auxo didn't.

If you don't want any of these options,get a new device-even the older iPhone 4 on iOS 5 or 6 can preform better

Instead of erasing any of my themes, do you think I should get rid of SBSettings? The only reason I use it is for iOS 7 like Control Center toggles and displaying the device RAM at the top of the screen. I have heard that SBSettings eats away at a lot of memory.

I don't think deleting SBSettings will improve your devices memory.The main reason for the RAM drop is winterboard.

However,try to delete SBSettings,and tell me if there is any performance boost.

I did delete SBSetttings and I had a noticeable boost in RAM, however now I'm bummed that I can't see the amount of RAM on the status bar. :P That's just about it though.
