How to fix some mysterious problems.

I've jailbroken my iPod Touch 5G with Pangu8 1.1 and updated the untether package and cydia installer. The untether update was about fixing the Launchd process "Spin" which would cause low RAM memory and overheating. I've installed the update but my iPod still has low RAM memory. I can't even open a webpage in safari properly. I've done everything Pangu said like enabling airplane mode and restoring via iTunes. I haven't installed any tweaks, even not Mobile Substrate. Does anybody have the same problem and does anybody know the solution?

What are you using to check the RAM?

Have you ever checked how much RAM is being used on iOS 8 before jailbreaking because its miles more than iOS 7.

iPhone 6 Memory Wired : 179 MB Active : 481 MB Inactive : 133 MB Free : 82 MB

I only ever get about 300mb free at most after rebooting and this was the same as before JB but on iOS 7 I'd have 500 free on my iPhone 5, so there's a huge difference but doesn't affect performance.

So what I'm getting at if your figures are like mine then it's not the cause of the issue you are having.

I did. Before jailbreaking i had 250 MB free and After jailbreaking i had 150 MB free. I'm using an app called Xcleaner to clean the RAM. Without cleaning it's usually 150 before jailbreaking with all background apps closed and 50 after jailbreaking with all background apps closed.

Have you tried updating Pangu to 0.4 in Cydia? it might fix the issues as it states. I have an iPT 5 and 8.1 and after getting 0.4 no apps have crashed the springboard and its been much faster. I haven't checked RAM use though. Maybe you could test it for me by seeing how much is available in 0.3 and the how much is free in 0.4?

sorry my earlier comment came out as an answer - newbie here. the full comment is as below i have the same issue of low ram on IPAD 4. the free ram on reboot is about 100 mb. once i clean it with some software this goes upto 500 odd but reuses the full ram very shortly. i have used Pangu 1.2.1 (latest version) and therefore it seems that this is not solved by the new version. so unless this is a IOS 8.1 issue (can somebody please confirm this on a non JB ipad) this extra space is being used somehow by the jailbreak active files is what i am guessing

Pangu Untether 0.4 worked for me. Safari and apps still crash sometimes, though. I guess that's just common.
