    I installed a free memory app and noticed that winterboard was taking up around 20 megs of ram. This probably explains why my apps crash until I reboot. In cydia I uninstalled Winterboard, rebooted and ran the memory app again. Springboard shows up as taking almost 20 megs of ram. Springboard does not show up in cydia so I can uninstall it. How is this possible? Does jailbreaking auto install springboard?

    You can't Uninstall it.

    Springboard is the ipod/iphones 'desktop'

    LOL at the thread maker. Yeah the SpringBoard is the main interface of the iPod Touch/iPhone you get rid of that (somehow) and you would be forced to restore.

    So if I restored then Springboard is not there? Sounds almost like Springboard is installed when its jailbroken.

    LOL did you not read the other posts. ITS THE DEFAULT SCREEN, MAIN PAGE, WITH ALL THE ICONS, YES. There is no way to get rid of it. You wouldnt be able to use your iPod if you did get rid of it.

    SpringBoard is always there, whether you restore or not. So there is nothing you can do about that. You want it out then just delete this simple directory.
    "/System/"
    It is (Highly) Not Recommended at all to do that. If you did that then you chose to do that. I am not responsible for your actions.

    So yeah there you go.
