    It is not working for my Itouch 3g. I install it but multitasking is still enabled. Any ideas?

    Worked, phone is instantly noticeably fastern (3GS 32MB IOS 4.01). Double-press home button now goes to favorites again.

    Doesn’t work.. if you open SBsettings and view processes..they are still there running.. all this does is change your double press to favorites.. actually it gives you back your control of double pressing of home.. but you can do what this does in activator.. this doesn’t stop multitasking by any means.
