Low Memory jettisoning of apps
I have recently opened my iPhone 4S because my sleep and home button failed, I tried to fix as much as I could but its still broken. Now I'm waiting for the delivery of these two parts (I live in Germany and it takes about 2 weeks from the US...).
But another problem came up after I reassembled my phone, when I try to start an app or game it loads around 5 seconds - the screen goes black and it throws me back to the homescreen, not all apps but some - especially the Gmail app but clash of clans and fruit ninja crashed as well. The error message is "Low Memory", but there is more than enough space for the apps I'm trying to launch...
Then I woke up today and my iPhone constantly switched from (mobile substrate) normal mode to safe mode and back until I turned it off.
Turning it back on started this "procedure" again...
I already restarted it many times, after the "safe mode and back" thing I re-restored my iPhone to 5.1.1 and jailbroke it again, still some of my apps (atleast Gmail) is crashing upon launch giving me a low memory message.
I fear I may broke something when I tried to repair my home button, but I have no idea what I could have done wrong...?
I have an iPhone 4S on jailbroken 5.1.1.
Thank you very much in advance!
P.S.: I opened my phone and tried to repair it myself - can I still get a refurbished phone from Apple for 210€?
