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!
Sounds bizarre, and the only idea I can think of would be to wipe/reload.

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 --

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.
