I started looking at the logs and saw a slow drain pattern. So I started removing apps one at a time to see which one was draining the memory. Mind you my drain was not as drastic as some have reported, but it was there none the less. I would start out just over 40 megs and watch a slow drain down into the teens. Again, it would take awhile. So after removing almost all my apps I became concerned that it was going to be your theme. So I changed themes, drain stopped.

    The good news for me is that the drain is slow. Those who have faster drains my have some other program helping the drain go faster. I'm not sure, but this may just be a part of living with a theme in general, but there is a drain that I don't experience with other themes.

    I'm looking at a combination of programs to see if I can spot a link between the theme and a certain program, but so far nothing yet. The hard part is that the drain is so slow, so results take a while to see.

    Again, I absolutely love the theme, best out there in my opinion and I probably will live with the slow drain because it's that good. If I spot any detailed information that I think can help, I'll post it up. I just wanted to post my findings to help because I'm a fan of your work for sure and didn't want to just say it has a memory drain and leave it at that. I wanted to try and provide some insight on how I arrived at my conclusion. I could be wrong and have been before, but I believe a look wouldn't hurt.
    All 3rd party themes do have a memory leak. Although 151 seems to be pretty stable now. Maybe it's fixed? I have little to no memory leak right now.

    Maybe I'll try BBC v7 to see if I get similar results.

    You will like the new 151 leak. It really seems to shut down the leak in 3rd party themes. I'm running BBAmpd right now and the memory leak is pretty much non existent for me. All phones react differently, so it's hard to tell for sure.

    Ok, took your advice and upgraded to .151 and changed back to your theme and I actually gained +.4 of memory, WOW! Booted with the stock theme at 49.1 and by just changing to your theme I gain up to 49.5, so now I've got my eye on the leak.

    I really really like this theme, so I'm hoping you're right and the .151 has fixed the slow leak that was there. The stock theme didn't have it. I'll let you know how it goes.

    ***UPDATE***
    Been running your theme for two hours now and memory holding steady. Looks like .151 has fixed the leak. Now I can't decide between BBPro or BOSv2, great problem to have. Thanks for the hard work and great theme.

    This is the only theme I have come across that is worth the slight performance hit that comes with themes. It is the only theme that I feel improves greatly upon the default in terms of visual clarity and looks. I still used the default theme until now.

    For the record, I will port this theme to the tour almost immediately after the release of a Plazmic update. :fing02:
