    Memory Leak with .151 & BBC V8.5

    I am running BBC 8.5 with .151 of course and I have a significant memory leak...daily. When installing the new hybrid I did all the correct steps on the phone and my PC so it cant be that. I used Shrink. I dunno, I have been reading the exact opposite about .151 w/BBC V8.5 -- no mem leak so help!
    I'll start off at around 40.5 mb and it will go down gradually -- got down to 22 mb yesterday. I dont get this--- During the week I use my media player to listen to music all day at work, thats it.

    I have 2 themes installed and these are my apps:

    Vigo, Flight Path, Tiltris, BB App Center, B of A Mobile, Quick Pull Lite, BB Maps, Google Maps, Opera Mini, Facebook, Storm Slider, BB OS, BBM 5.0


    Let em know guys---I am thinking about just wiping then doing a clean install of .151 again and then re-installing BBC V8.5 (which is awesome btw!), however, Id like to avoid doing this! :laugh2::laugh2::laugh2:

    Appreciate any ideas guys!

    Tried BP 4X. Using Nates Blak-n-Grey theme but I've also tried it with the standard theme. No love. Everything else in the options menu is "selectable/clickable". Anyone else have this issue?
    Sounds bizarre, and the only idea I can think of would be to wipe/reload.

    Delete Vigo and one or both of your themes and the leak will go away. I'd put money on it. V8 and 8.5 have awesome memory management but apps and themes can still cause some leakage - I doubt there is any way to get around that no matter what OS you have or how many times you wipe.

    Edit: Even better advice- if its not slowing your phone down then just ignore it. As far as the themes go, you can only use one at a time so why have 2?

    Yeah, I have always had a feeling that Vigo was the culprit, however, I havent opened vigo in over a week and I am still leaking memory --

    Can an app that isnt open and NOT running in the background still leak memory?
    And also, can an inactive theme leak memory?

    The answer is yes and yes. Themes that are inactive cause problems so you want to get rid of any that you are not using. My experience with Viigo has been a disaster in terms of memory. Great app murderous on phone performance and memory at least on my phone. Even though Viigo is not running actively it is still using some system resources. You can check this in the event log.

    As a rule of thumb, get rid of apps and themes you don't plan on using. This will help memory life.
