So, I do enjoy winterboard, but as you know, winterboard eats tons of ram. My solution: make a modded version of one of the dependencies, pincrush, and viola! I have 45 mb ram with a theme on, compared to my usual 30mb. The secret: pincrush just optimizes images. It isn't used most of the time unless you tell it to in winterboard, and most themers optomize their themes anyway, so I changed the files. :) It can't optomize images anymore, but I have lots of ram, and everything still works! Here's the .deb I compiled of the version, make sure you have winterboard and pincrush removed before you install this, then you can install winterboard. Thier is a tiny bug, it says that theres a pincrush update in cydia now, but DON'T UPDATE! Then it will eat your ram again. Hope you enjoy.

If you want to fix that "bug" where cydia asks you to upgrade pngcrush all the time just set the version number in the control file of your .deb higher than the one from the telesphero source in cydia. If you set it to 9 or 10 it should not bug you until a version of the original pngcrush comes our with version higher than that. and i think thatll be a while.
