    Hey I was wondering is there a setting in Backgrounder or maybe another sort of toggle that stops the Apple applications (like Music, Mail, and Safari) from running in the background by default? I hate having to go into SBSettings every time to manually close those apps when i'm in need of more RAM. I played around in Backgrounder's settings a bit but none of the changes I made seemed to work. Any suggestions?

    Actually, there is a way to stop Safari from running in the background. I've tried this on my iPod and it works like a charm.

    1) Download this .deb file.

    2) SSH the .deb file into the root (/) of your device.

    3) Open MobileTerminal (can be installed via Cydia) and type the following, hitting Enter after each line:

    Code:
    su root
    alpine (The letters won't show up when you type it, but it's there)
    cd /
    dpkg -i jp.ashikase.safariquitter-0.2-1.deb
    4) You should see a bunch of text scroll down the screen that describes the installation process.

    5) Once the text stops, respring.

    Voila! Safari will no longer run in the background when you close it.
