Is there a tweak for making any app multitasking friendly?
I have a radio app i often times use and when i close the app to use another app, it stops working... is there any tweak out there i can use to make it still work in the background?

You need the libstatusbar package from Cydia. If you can't find it with a Search you might need to change your User settings to developer in order for it to show up in the results.
Bigger picture though: this is kind of using a boulder to swat a fly. You might be better off trying to get the app developer to issue an update.

You made a theme for your black on white status bar...(which I'm
Now using! Thanks)
Backgrounder is great!!! Everyone should use it. It literally let's you have better control of the iOS...
Nothing really needs to be in the background... Except music playing applications... This is the solution... It's my second most needed tweak.
I didn't update my ip4 until this was released for ios5!!!

You need to install the right version
Also this is great for controlling what gets backgrounder.... Example, you have words with friends, and hanging with friends... Both open is 170 bits of your ram.... Then you get a message... More ram, then listen to some music ... More ram....

But doesn't Backgrounder itself eat up system resources too? I guess I just never had a problem with the way iOS handles backgrounding and RAM allotment. What is it that you're trying to avoid? Just high RAM usage?
There's a really interesting explanation of ios multitasking and backgrounding here: Fraser Speirs - Blog - Misconceptions About iOS*Multitasking

Well I start with 220 or so mb of ram, after each respring / restart. THen I Do a free mem and get anywhere between 274 and 315 depending on...(wish I knew)... Then i watch my ram Junp around depending on what I open... And I have it setup to not multitask, it always stays above 225...
I've never experienced a battery problem, and I think the starting ram should be around 350-375, but that's optimal and without winterboard...

To each his own I guess...I've never had a battery problem and I just let iOS handle background tasks and multitasking. I don't think it really makes a difference to have an extra 100MB unused, myself, but if you feel that you get better battery that way who am I to argue?
