    Does multitasking on the iPod Touch 2G hold on well despite the lack of RAM?

    I'm deciding to take out multitasking and just go with the stock jailbroken iOS 4 (without wallpapers and multitasking)

    Works just as fast if I didn't have iOS 4

    Oh, if you want peak performance, then leave them off and buy a 4G

    I have multitasking and wallpapers enabled on my 8gig, and it runs just fine. But i don't multitask often, and i have the multitasking set so things will multitask only if i manually do it

    how do you choose when to send apps to multitask? i though the native apple multitask sends everything to multitask which gets annoying

    There was a guide up on here on how to do it, but I'm to lazy to wait for it all to load up.

    1. Go into backgrounder
    2. Go into Global (Top of the page)
    3. Scroll to the bottom to Miscellaneous, and turn "Fall Back to Native" off.
    4. Respring the device and there you go

    Apple doesn't really background everything. The apps that aren't updated for 4.0 will just go into the multitasking bar like a dock icon. It's not really in the background, it will restart from the beginning when you open it.

    The apps that are updated for multitasking will multitask, but most will just freeze and load from where you left off. This shouldn't take up much RAM. A VERY small amount. There shouldn't be lag.

    The only reason wallpapers cause laggage, is the shadows behind the text. There's a tutorial to get rid of those. After you rid those shadows, everything should be fast.

    Apple told us it would be slow so they could move on and put bigger and better stuff on the new devices, and so they could have US unlucky ones upgrade. Which is what I will be doing after I pay my mom off for my laptop and save up and buy a keyboard piano. Then, I can save up for my iPod touch 4 because it will be awesome. Guarenteed.
