Hello everyone

i have a jailbroken iPod Touch 4th. Gen. with Cydia 1.1.8 and an untethered JB via p0sixspwn. Today I wanted to see a film on the YT app, but the app crashed after 1 Minute. I tried it again, but it was the same. But if I shade the screen, it won´t crash. I think it´s because of the RAM, I just have 8-9 MB free RAM. Is there a Cydia Tweak or App, that frees RAM?

You can do this with SBSettings, open the dropdown window, click processes and then free up memory, it freed 100mb for me!

How to get more RAM on A4 devices:

1)Delete all apps and media you dont need.Have at least 30% of storage free.

2)If you have a lot of tweaks,uninstall some

3)If you have Winterboard,delete it(will increase RAM)

4)Use SBSettings Free Ram feature

5)Kill all apps in multitask

You don't even need to be jailbroken to free up RAM. Download SYS-activity app from Apple's store (there is a free version and a $0.99 version, I'm not sure if the free version has the capability to free RAM but I know the $0.99 version can). Go to the memory tab, and then click on the double arrows in a circle button on the left side, midway up the screen. It will start freeing up memory, and the memory display on the bottom will start increasing.

But a jailbreak will provide more options

True, I wouldn't argue against jailbreaking, it's just that for this purpose alone it isn't strictly necessary. Heck, I jailbreak everyone of my devices going back to the original iPod Touch!
