    Disabling live tiles helps.

    Any word on when an update might be coming. I love this theme but had to stop using it due to how sluggish it would get and not being able to run other programs. I would really like to start using it again.

    On my little iPod Touch 4g, I really don't experience the sluggish performance you guys are having with your iPhones.

    On my device with just Metroon and SBsettings installed on iOS 5.1.1, I can get pretty good free ram compared to other themes I have run.

    Here's a pic of the free ram on my device, keep in mind us iPod users have half the ram of the iPhone to start with.

    Metroon-imageuploadedbymodmyi1339624011.906897.jpg

    I think 147 mb free is pretty good for this device compared to just breaking the 100mb I have had with other themes before.

    Some things you can do to get better performance is to limit other tweaks. If you running a bunch of tweaks, of course that's gonna slow you down when running Metroon. So don't just blame the theme for bad performance.

    The other thing that would help is to turn off Live Tiles when your not using them. Keep in mind that each Live Tile is like a little App, and the more your running, the more your multitasking your device. Do you really need to have Iive Tiles running in the background when you want to play a game or run a big app. If you turn them on/off you are in control of your devices memory. Coupled with a lot of tweaks running I can see where bad performance would come in.

    A lot of people don't like SBsettings, but I thing the best part is the ability to Free Ram. It sure does help before you play a game because it frees up resources the game can then use.

    So a little memory management can go along way with the performance of this or any theme.

    Hope this helps

    Well that explains a little more When you leave OS7 or Metroon through dreamboard both themes will still be using resources because they are still running the dylib in the background.

    Use SBsettings or Springtomize and turn off the other dylib your not using. So if your running Metroon, turn off the OS7.dylib, and if your running OS7, turn off the Metroon.dylib.

    This way your not running 2 themes at once, even though only 1 is active in Dreamboard.

    Turn off both dylib's of you want to use default IOS.

    This should free up a lot more resources for you

    Remember to turn on the dylib's if you want to run OS7 or Metroon again or you will get a "plist not found" error when launching in Dreamboard.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, for the info.
    I uninstaller OS7 and rebooted the phone, hope this will solve the performance issues.

    It will

    OS7 used a lot more resources than Metroon, and if the dylib is still active while Metroon is running you will see resource issues

    Running Metroon by itself will allow the theme to free up the resources it uses because Endfinity uses a type of "dynamic memory management" with Metroon, so it will free up resources as you turn on/off tiles, etc...

    I knew the MobileSubstrates were selected but didn't turn them off when reverting to standard IOS or other DB themes. You saved my RAM

    I currently have very little free time, so all I was able to get done is an update for Metroon to improve performance and battery life. I sent it out to my testers and I'm waiting for their feedback, but I'm hoping that I can release it as soon as possible

    Thank you for the work you put in this theme. I bought it for the awesome possibilities this DreamBoard theme offers and so as to test its RAM-friendliness. I have to say I'm really happy with it already. The update is going to bring it to a level I'd not have thought possible :-)

    Here is a quick video showing all the Live HTML tiles I have posted for Metroon as well as a small preview of the Desktop "Hub" concept I am working on.

    Currently I only have the Hub titles enabled, but plan to add different backgrounds images or colors, and maybe HTML widgets like a Animated Xbox Avatar for the Games Hub and maybe RSS feeds for the People Hub and any other ideas people come up with.



    I am looking forward to any suggestions or ideas to help further the Desktop Hub concept

    Hopefully some of you Photoshop Gurus can make some "Hub" Background images that I can incorporate into this project to get that Metro or Custom Look

    640x960 should be the size if anyone is up to it

    Hint, Hint

    I find that activating the desktop (springboard) before switching themes removes the crashes. I have no idea why it happens though :P
