    I'm having a similar problem, when i'm "multitasking", sometimes one (or both) of the apps im using crashes, and then all apps crass when I open them until I reboot the iPod or restart the springboard from smbprefs...

    When you press the home button to launch another app, sometimes it helps if you hold the button for at least 5 seconds so that it can properly close entirely otherwise it will still take more system resources as if it were still running.

    I'm having the same problem. Usually, it closes 3 programs on me, then restarts itself. After that its fine for a while. I find that if I reset springboard after the first app crashes, it prevents the restart. That's the only solution I have for the time being.

    The best way to determine why you have random hangs is to figure out what applications you all have in common. I think we can pretty much agree that for the most part (I'm not saying 100%) that without a jailbreak, there are fewer hangs/restarts. So most likely something installed is causing the problems...

    I'm not having any hangs myself - but I also haven't installed Summerboard (which many people seem to) and I'm not using any themes (although I have rearranged my icons with Customize). If you guys want to figure this out, start posting your list of apps/hacks so that maybe you can track down the commonalities...

    hmmm i dont have this problem im im typing this in safari, listening to music with gba emu minimized aka icon indicating so in taskbar also have isolitaire in the background with a saved game and downloading a couple mb file from the installer couple minutes ago it finished just now and i have mailapp in the background with the pushemail app loaded with it and my ipod hasnt crashed i havnt rebooted it in a good while i got 61mb free memory for more apps and everything to load everything is running smooth no lag.

    A suggestion that has helped many people i the only appn the past and me aswell is to uninstall summerboard. i still use it, the only app that crashes for me is apollo but i dont use it i use meebo use to use jivetalk but its too slow.

    hope u guys can find a solution to your prob try my suggestion and see if that works
