anyone knows why net_rim_bb_smime_lib.cod is 188.8.131.52 in this hybrid? I swapped it out for a more recent version but I was curious.

Could be due to possible memory leak with newer versions, or might be one that BBC finds is the best for its application.

Meterberry memory cleaner can actually cause decrease of device memory. If you go to their website, you will see this noted in the developer's notes @ meterberry.com (FAQ). But, for those who want instant gratification, here's a segment of what you'll find.

The Recover Memory button initiates the garbage collector programmatically. This corresponds with "System.GC() invocation" in the table below. As the table reveals, garbage collection is rather complex, and there is much more involved in the process than simply increasing the amount of free application memory. Initiating the garbage collector programmatically has different effects for different users depending on operating system version, third party applications, and settings. Some users benefit from doing so and some do not.
If the amount of free application memory decreases after pressing the Recover Memory button, it most likely is due to the "auto-commit" operation in the table below. This takes objects that were going to be moved from RAM to flash some time in the future and moves them immediately. The benefit of doing so is that this makes more RAM available for use by the system, which is much faster than flash. Remember that application memory is flash.
Also, even if the amount of free application memory stays the same after the garbage collector us run, it still most likely freed up RAM behind the scenes which should make the phone operate more smoothly.
Note: MeterBerry does not currently display RAM statistics because the amount of free RAM fluctuates up and down much more significantly than application memory as the phone is running, and doesn't give any real measure of what is going on in the system.
Note: It is recommended that the Recover Memory feature is used sparingly, as initiating the garbage collector excessively will not provide any added benefit and only consume battery life.
Q: How is MeterBerry's Recover Memory feature different than the operating system's Memory Cleaning feature?
MeterBerry's Recover Memory feature initiates the garbage collector programmatically. See the question above for details.
The operating system's Memory Cleaning feature is for security purposes. When it is enabled, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) overwrites memory with zeros before it is released to be recovered by the garbage collector. This prevents sensitive data from being retrieved from memory later. The Memory Cleaner also clears various caches on the phone including the temporary key store, content protection caches, address book caches, and more. This is why the amount of free application memory sometimes increases after it is run.

Slacker Radio Findings- revised

Contrary to my previous report, I can now state that Slacker radio has only a minimal effect on memory mangement when used with this hybrid. HOWEVER, in combination with my Gemblock Iberry today Plus theme, the effect on memory is HUGE! Even though the IBerry theme appears to work perfectly with this hybrid, it is draining significant memory and seems to be even worse when Slacker is loaded on the device. I have no rational explanation...just the way it appears to be. I deleted this theme and went back to the stock verizon Zen theme, reloaded Slacker and over 24 hours, it has little to no negative impact on device memory...so, as always, get those unused themes off your device, even though they may not be active.

After my reload, i am now up to 18h 21m runtime. In that time I have gone from 43.4 Meg to 36.3 Meg. Gonna keep running and see how it does at 24 hours and so on.
Now, when I charge at night, I do turn the unit off (use the "turn off" button on screen), does that affect these stats?

Not too certain about what effect , if any at all, turning off while charging will have....I suspect very little although you may be conserving a lot of device memory while the unit is "turned off". The memory decrease you report seems quite respectable but I can tell you that others report nearly none at all and I am also seeing only a two MB drop after 36 hours. I'm suspecting, as previously discussed, your themes and applications that reside on the phone. But the key is---Is everything runny smoothly and quickly? If the answer is yes, ignore the actual memory "number"...it makes no real difference unless it's interfering with the operation of your device.

Oh still smooth and great.

sry for the late reply,

as i said even with all these apps, when i was on CRACKMAN's v7.4.1 hybrid
my memory was stable and it ALWAYS stood above 20mb, the only problem i had with that hybrid was the MMS issue.
So i updated hybrid with v8, MMS issue was fix but now im getting memory leaks.
