    iPhone 4s (6.1.3,bought used didn't restore it,cause didn't know if it is necessary and also didn't know how to,read below you will get my point)

    and my device configuration goes as follows

    Apps = 47 (,fb,viber,tango,messanger,soundcloud,espn cricinfo app,notes app from itunes,chrome,download manager,fileapp,Open office,Adobe reader,vlc,songza etc)

    Benchmarking tool: Battery app from itunes store


    Push notifications for:

    Mail app: 2 accounts on push,1 on fetch (minutes)

    Facebook messenger

    Whatsapp

    Espn Cricinfo app (live cricket score,though not so reliable push)

    Tapatalk: 3 forums

    Weather widget (lol :P)

    First the GENERAL LAG: I get sort of "low-framerate" type of lag while scrolling lists in adobe reader,in settings aswell at times,and in other apps with long lists or rich

    content,strangely no lag USually on safari,where it had to be,the only lag in safari is usually due to my weak connection where website is just loading and i tend to scroll down

    Kindly help me with this it really frusterates me,I bought this idevice (my first any-smart device) just for its efficiceny and this drives me crazy,i

    ditched android ONLY for this


    NOW: the Memory management issues and the resultant lag in heavy tasking apps/safari while multitasking


    When my device has no apps in switcher,whenever i check the memory status from battery app,it is above 50%...usually 50-68%...I don't know if this is normal or what,but fine

    for me..but as i open music and say,notes and fb messenger/songza/ etc. or even a low memory app (whatsapp etc) and check the battery app,the memory usage is 85-94% and here the lag creeps up a bit if i type longer in notes etc,and sometimes if i open 8-9 apps,it works for few minutes ,and then phone resprings..


    THe Strange bit is whenever i click free up memory,the memory usage goes back down to 74% or so..making everything quite slick

    typing in open office is Impossible for the kind of lag i get,songza + open office = impossible...typing gets stuttering and all,don't know what to do..


    as now i have jailbroken my device the memory issue crept up more,but i have deleted the apps and now it is less annoying (less than the tweaks applied,not the above mentioned frusterations :P)

    Kindly help needed????

    any solid suggestions? causes??? any more info you need i am ready to tell but i really want to make my device efficient,and want to use it jailbroken?

    do i need a restore? if yes,then can i restore to the same firmware (6.1.3) (NOTE: i have jailbroken it)...even if no? then how do i restore?

    Do you close the apps that are running in the background?

    while running what? what is the purpose of the device when i can't listen to songza while copying and formatting/editing from notes to open office (just an example)...as i said i rarely

    open 8-9 apps,and I DONT THINK this problem has to occur even if i open 8-9 apps in which 5 are stock apps,cause ios takes a bit of a time to launch apps then which is annoying

    a bit

    Since you are jailbroken try this tweak. It's called iCleaner Pro. This is the repo:http://exile90software.com/cydia . It gets rid of uneeded file space on the phone and could help speed it up.

    We spoke earlier Kashan and I know your happy with your current iOS version you also stated you bought your 4s used and never restored it I believe that's your main issue

    Try the iCleaner mentioned above if that doesn't clear up your issues I recommend you do an iCloud backup and restore to the current iOS 7.0.4 then you can restore from backup and re-jailbreak your device its really a simple process and you will not lose anything

    Actually i tried did try icleaner,also deleted some of the unused languages and voice command languages to free-up space,but it didn't help idk why...guess i have to upgrade

    then,hope it solves,kindly give me some hope D You know after posting many critical remarks (*frustrations),i still don't wanna lost this gem,it is awesome because ... i don't

    know but it just works and it is good...

    So here I am,going to upgrade it to 7.0 And I will not restore my backup just in case something faulty happens,happy to resettle my phone

    just some quick questions

    can I use iTunes restore method to upgrade to 7.0.4 (is it legit btw?) I have reasons for it because here we suffer from powerloss a lot,so maybe i can turn on my generator and upgrade from manually downloaded ipsw (no niggles)

    Also

    Would it wipe "everything from the device" ? and making it freshly-new ?

    And I suddenly found out i can place reminders on lockscreen/NC both in ios 7... HURRAYYY xD finally,adds up to a key reason to upgrade...

    Hope I don't get the lag on my device,hope hope hope


    and this time i really want to use it in "iOS" way,suspending reminders,notes,messages,phone,other 3-4 apps in background all the time,literally all the time,this really helps...but don't know well,Hope that it works,or i would have to migrate to android :| :|

    Yes. It would wipe the device completely and update you to iOS 7.0.4 but I think you need internet to restore. I hope it all works out for you in the end.

    Yes using iTunes is legal and until icloud it was the only way to update your OS


    A clean install is your best bet and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results

    Let us know how you make out 👍

    ahan

    btw I had an experience few weeks ago as i have a "gevey sim",my device was locked down due to me wrongly entering the ID (T-mobile Code 2343091) and it said "your device is

    not activated please activate" stuff like that,i had a wifi connected and as soon as i hit ok/activate,it activated and then i started to use my phone,IS IT THE one "signing apple" thing that you all talk about? if it is,then i passed it perfectly,means apple still signing 6.1.3 for iPhone 4s? ??

    Apple is not signing iOS 6.1.3 for the devices that can support the iOS 7 update.

    If you get any errors, simply google them. These occur mainly when the iPhone is not connected in DFU mode properly or the file you downloaded is not for the iPhone 4S. You can download the .0.4 for iPhone 4S from Felix Bruns. Next, you should seriously complete wipe and upgrade. I never had any such issue of low ram and lagging on my 4S which was running 6.1.3 and then updated to 7.0.4. Best of luck.

    Well i have updating my 4s to 7.0.4 and here are the observations,


    so far installed only facebook and battery doctor app

    The phone was sort of laggy in switching from landscape to potrait and viceversa,the animation stuttered a tinge,but annoyed me,so i turned off parallax from accessibilities and

    Now it is running fine,No System lag,facebook lags just a tinge due to network maybe (slow opening of sites so a bit of stutter,doesn't matter much)


    I have checked it with battery docter with Notes,reminders,calenders and messages opened along with facebook app and the usage sometimes still goes as high as 94%

    But the memory management is quite efficient by now and it frees up to 80% or 72% sometimes automatically

    BUT the thing which i am still noticiing is whenever i click on free-up memory,the memory frees,say from 94% to 68% and that DOES make a difference,i don't know what

    is happening which app is creating that memory bug (or if it is a bug xD),i have jailbroken now and it is running fine

    wanna ask any memory optimization apps on cydia/itunes?

    any general iOS 7 cydia tweak that can improve the performance of OS?

    any app which can free up memory automatically when it reaches a certain limit (say 90%)? ?? kindly help me?
