    I was wondering if iMemoryEnhancer is really bad for the iPod or iPhone it's self. I am asking this because I only have about 33-40 mb of ram and my games lag and I don't have anything else open and I have the thing where the multitasking only saves app in it that are running to cut down on usage and the no shadows under the apps.

    It is bad and it will do damgage. It's basically the same thing as iPhone VM (virtual memory)

    Don't listen to this guy.It's perfect safe.Many people believe it causes damage but it doesn't.

    It's only a rumor that it degrades your iPod/iPhone.

    Those that say it damages it though say at least 5-10 years life expectancy "if" there true.

    So theres really nothing to worry about it.

    Trust me it's well worth it.You'll get an increase from 40 RAM to 90 RAM.

    it corrupts a sector every 10K or so rewrites
    which should take a while to do any significant damage

    Okay, you people are f***ing retarded, listen up.

    This is the same thing as using a Solid State Drive as RAM, it'll f***ing fly, but it's not the original intention. Flash memory isn't meant to be writen too tens of thousands of times, but it'll do it regardless.

    YES, your wearing it down, but your not going to instantanously kill it. After a year or two of heavy use, you'll notice that things will begin to slow down and begin to become buggier. It'll happen to your iPod if you don't use the virtual RAM regardless, but it'll take years more.

    Think about it as an investment; speed up your ipod and take a year off of it, or leave it stock and keep it slow as balls.

    Thank you, but I'll have my cigarette.
