    Does having multiple items enabled in Winterboard take up more memory? Like if I am using one theme, will that use less RAM than if I was using a theme, a UI, a lockscreen, a music theme, and a UI sound theme checked?

    I don't think so. You could run tests to check

    All right, I think I will test this. I'll report back when I get my results.

    EDIT:
    With one theme enabled, I had 167 mb of RAM. After activating EVERY theme in my winterboard, I dropped to 165 mb.

    I really don't think it uses any ram, and if it does, it is very subtle amount. Sorry for this useless thread, I guess I could have solved it on my own..

    winterboard doesn't continuously use the ram. It only uses it when it tells the springboard/app to change it images once.

    i think it's the widgets that can be enabled in winterboard that use all the memory. i normally have around 50 mb free, but when i enable the initsua theme with widgets, it drops to 35.
