    I just jailbroke my ipod without wallpaper. I read somewhere that the wallpaper had been buffed by apple to take up much more ram. And after disabling, it seemed ALOT faster.

    So as of now :
    Multi tasking = Apple > Backgrounder
    Wallpaper background = Winterboard > Apple

    Sad thing is, winterboard doesn't work. I tried using winterboard's user wallpaper but even after several re-springs it did not show the background.

    So yea, if your willing to be patient for it to be fixed its worth trading no wallpaper for the speed boost.

    I've been hearing that the wallpaper on iPod Touch 2g takes up a ton of ram truthfully it doesn't. I have multitasking and wallpaper on mine and it stayed around 40mb free with one app open. Now I use enhance ram to have around 80mb of ram. I never had a crach on ANY app besides 3rd party ones that are not supported right now.

    Download "Desktop/SMS wallpaper" off cydia. It allows you to change your wallpaper to whatever you want without the need of winterboar. Just choose a picture from your library and choose set as wallpaper, when adjusting don't click "set" but instead click in the 'i' that now appears on the top corner

    How do you enhance ram to have up to 80MB free?
    I've heard of this before but don't know what to do...

    I've not got round to upgrading just yet (I'm doing it now) but I'll let you know if I have anything similar.
