Average available memory
I'm just trying to see (curious) what the average available memory is for people. I know it depends on what each person has installed in the iPhone. My average without re-springing or rebooting is around 100 MB at any given moment. Mine did seem to be higher like 140MB but lately not. I've tried turning one by one off in mobile substrate add ons but didn't seem to make a difference. Im just looking for jailbroke phones on 3GS not unlocked. Thanks for any replys.

I have an average of between 65-85 MB free, but I always have Phone, Mail, Safari, BeeJiveIM, & GV Voice running in the background. PLUS intelliscreen, and quite a few others.
And wen I respring, I go right back up to 144 MB free, every time.
Safari takes a LOT of memory, based on HOW MANY PAGES you have open IN safari, and how much code/HTML each page required.
Whenever I close Safari in Processes, I get an immediate 30-40MB additionally freed up.

I was wondering this, because my available memory seems to always hover around 20MB... honestly, it doesn't seem slow, but what gives? According to SBSettings, the only processes I have currently running are Phone and Mail (although I'm surprised LockInfo and Winterboard aren't listed), but I'm sitting on 27MB right now. I'm doing an update right now, but I'll do a reset in the morning and see if my number jumps up.

On my JB 3GS, with smartscreen having the weather widget on the lock screen and running a few themes on winterboard with a live calendar, weather, and clock widget on my springboard. I get about 145-155MB average. If I push the free memory on my SBSettings, I can squeeze up to 171MB of free memory.

On a side note, I got a xmas theme with animated snow falling in the backround...how much memory do you guys think the animation alone is consuming?

I'm on the older 3GS models if that helps. I just watch what I install on cydia and what's in winterboard. Alot of themes have their settings to the creaters standards. I just edit those settings what I feel is necessary like the intervals of the weather update for my lock and home screen. I had a rotating wallpaper in my previous them and didn't really take up that much memory. Maybe like 5 MB so an animation in the background shouldn't much either.
What I use to have before on average:
