    I blame my minor memory leak on BBM 5.0

    I had a few other issues (battery for one) so I switched to Lyrical's 5.0.0.238/287 hybrid http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/h...87-hybrid.html and now the issues are gone and memory is rock solid. Remember each device is different, so your experience could vary.

    ROCKS!
    I have never tried a Lyrical Hybrid before, only BBCM, so maybe it is time I branch out and see how that works. If a complete wipe and repload of the stock OS still gives me issues I just might try the Hybrid. Thanks for the info and the link - much appreciated.

    Here is a Meterberry screen shot from lastnight into today. When running the Precision Zen theme the memory doesn't move much at all. Where you see the 7.9 mb drop was when I gave one of my themes another try and memory started dropping. Deleted the theme went back to Precision Zen, rebooted and you can see memory sits stable.

    I'm willing to bet it is the BBAmped Blue Today theme by Natemz - great theme but not developed for the 5.0 platform currently. I'll live with the memory leak for now until the theme is updated to the 5.0 platform - love the theme too much to go back to the default Precision Zen theme. I'm still going to do a wipe, shrink and reload just to be sure it's not something else.

    Anyone have any idea when the Plazmic theme building software is going to be updated to support the 5.0 OS platform?

    perfect thread for me, just posted this in the .328 findings and fixes

    last battery pull was on monday night. not sure which program is causing this crazy memory leak, and unfortunately i use all the programs i have installed at the moment...just did a battery pull and rebooted with 25mb free. right now, i'd guess that google voice and sync are causing the leak since they are the 2 apps that weren't designed with the storm in mind.

    3rd party apps installed: google maps, google voice, google sync, google talk, facebook, opera mini, aim, pattern lock lite. i'm always connected to googletalk. all other apps i close out.

    other than this awful memory leak, i'm happy with .328 very much.

    Themes are a major player in memory loss for sure. I would stay away from them if you are on 5.0. At least until a new 5.0 theme developer comes out.

    I'm running the default theme and I still leak bad though. I have to reboot every day. I lose 20+MB a day on 328. But I would rather have the leak then to not have all my apps I like. It's a trade off. Is it really that bad if you have to reboot once a day? I don't think so. 5.0 makes up for it IMO.

    I agree with you completely. Hopefully there is a Plazmic update to the 5.0 platform sooner than later. I like your theme so I live w/the memory drain and have QuickPull set to reboot daily (but had to turn off the memory monitor from it because it popped up constantly).
