    BBM 5.0 has no effect on the Tour.

It's when a user loses like 22 mb in a day that it's an actual leak. The issue with this is that it impedes phone speed once you get low enough, causes messages to be deleted without your control, and can stop you from being able to install more apps if it gets low enough.

    Now, those concerns aren't that big for me - I use MeterBerry with scheduled resets every morning. But, I support a lot of theme users who DON'T use MeterBerry and don't do regular battery pulls (nor should they be expected to). So, if they're getting a huge leak, I need to know if I'm responsible for it - so I can fix the problem

    My hunch is that it's not my theme though, and it's actually the new BBM 5.0 leak. As I said before, losing a few mb here and there isn't horrible - but losing 10+ mb is kind of an issue, and it can spiral into something more serious... It's something that a lot of developers ignore and let users fend for themselves - but I'm trying my best to take care of my users and make sure that my themes are stable/safe for them to use without fear of losing valuable data (messages) due to memory leaks

    On top of that, I'm just curious if the bbm 5.0 leak is leaking memory for other people or just for me!
    Meterberry is a known leaker of memory just for starters, and a few lost MBs here and there are not too serious. I was just showing that I am running BBM 5.0 with no loss of memory.

    I gotcha! Thanks for letting me know. Yeah, I had absolutely no leak in .151... until installing the BBM leak and my theme beta. I was unaware that anyone ever had an issue with MeterBerry leaking. Never gave me any trouble (been through 7 of these Storms and only God knows how many OSs lol)

    Thanks again for the info
