Does Jailbreak ( just Cydia with no tweaks etc. installed ) occupy any amount of RAM on the device? I don't know I was just curious about that and I asked . And when these tweaks and packages begin to heap out what might happen ? I haven't heard any kind of lag on iPhone but just curious. I thought that might affect Gaming experience . Maybe . -.-

No it does not. Jailbreaking gives you root access to your device along with Cydia. What matters is what you install AFTER that. Too many and/or bad (poorly coded + pirated) tweaks can slow your device down. Generally, tweaks that rely heavily on Cydia Substrate will use more RAM. Otherwise, jailbreaking alone doesn't do anything. Also, iOS manages RAM efficiently. Remember,free RAM is wasted RAM.

I got all the point :) Thank you for comprehensive reply like this.I don't know much about mobile devices and how they work , I mean we don't know what's happening inside anyway :D I realize these devices ;they call them hard-end phones (Note3 , Galaxies ,Sony's etc. ) and have a giant amount of RAM , 2GBytes , 3 or 4 maybe in futuretime .
