    After some research i've come up with a combination of iPhone 3G tweaks, that make the phone totally usable with iOS 4.1, plus the ability to use multitasking as it was meant to be.

    Jailbreak,
    Remove Launch Daemons (boosts boot-time a lot)
    install SBSettings

    install MultiCleaner (the best part)

    My device is setup as follows.

    for the Launch Daemons check this thread and delete whatever isn't necessary for you:
    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=224341



    for SBSettings:
    * show the free memory right next to the clock on the status bar so you know what's going on at any time.
    * and make it show the processes button, so you can free up memory when needed.



    MultiCleaner:
    * make it close the terminated apps.
    * icons should not shake.
    * icons should show the delete button always.
    * quit app by holding the home button a little longer.



    This way your iPhone3G will terminate the apps, and only keep the multitasking ones open if you press the home button shortly. For example you might not want all the recent apps in your multitask bar, or some that do nothing for you (memory hog!), BUT you might want for instance to listen to music while you play Solitaire, or while you browse the internet.

    Minimalistic multitasking as it was meant to be for the iPhone 3G.

    Hope this was helpful to some

    Ok.. Your telling people to delete things from there device that they might as well need. The LaunchDaemons actually do something like enabling different functions to run...

    And we have TONS of threads about this.

    Would be nice if you wrote what each plist did so people wouldn't delete stuff they actully need.

    Did you all have to be so harsh? he's trying to help and you all tell him to close the thread!

    They have a point, there are threads that say this already, and you didn't specify what deleting them does, for the ones wary of having to restore.

    Guys you have a point, just corrected the post.
    But no one would have to restore by deleting these launch daemons. All checked here.

    iPod touches don't need launch daemons that utilise sim cards, phone and SMS, Internet tethering. So in reality, iPhone users need most daemons, iPod touch users have many daemons that do nothing for their device and can be safely (at their own risk of course)

    Yes, but some of them do nothing or do things some people will never need. Then they are just unnecessary.

    Oh, that's real helpful. Everything makes sense now. But did you type enough explanation points? I think if you added more it would be easier to understand.
    Yes. Sort of.
    iPhone users can kill services like VOIP, mobileme, other things they don't do. A few daemons appear to do nothing and can be removed with no side effects. iPhone users can delete around half the daemons that iPT users can. Still makes a good difference.

    Also not mentioned in this thread is removing old/unnecessary mobile substrate addons or winterboard tweaks. I'll briefly go over that.
    Mobile substrate takes up memory, cpu, and battery. If it's a small tweak you can find a .plist edit or something to, get rid of it. Remove or disable all mobile substrate addons you don't use more than once a week.
    Uncheck winterboard themes you don't use. If there is something you can do to get the tweak effect without setting the theme, do that. For the things you don't, try to combine all your themes into one. It should speed things up a bit. When done, backup this theme onto your computer or a separate, new folder in root somewhere, then go to winterboard and tap "Optimize themes" to make things go a bit quicker.

    If you use backgrounder and only enable at launch certain apps, multitasking is useful. Or just have thing multitask on command.

    Or do it Apples genius way, multitasking every single app until your RAM explodes.
