Are you *absolutely* sure you wrote it here *exactly* like TB shows you? Can you attach a screenshot of it?
Yeah pretty sure Titanium says the following:
System ROM: 440MB
SD Card 27.8GB
Ext SD Card 31.4GB
The reason that I'm pretty sure is that I just ran it on my device and read it.
In simple terms:
System ROM is the space on the device's internal card that stores the ROM image you just flashed.
Internal is the space for you to install applications.
SD Card (and Ext SD) is the space for you to install data for your apps.
All of these are storage areas, like a hard disk (actually a type of solid state drive), they are persistent storage (so data stays without power) but are slow compared to...
RAM is the working memory of the device - it's what these apps run in, and it's totally different (it's volatile, dies with no power and is typically fast). When this runs out, the processor in your device gets very busy swapping things around to make sure the app you're running has enough space to do its thing.
Thing is, apps you install (like Amazon MP3, Facebook, etc) run even when you don't start them! This takes up more of your RAM than you would really like, making your device sad.
Install ES Task Manager, run it, and when it starts, hit the Hamburger Menu (top left, 3 parallel lines) and choose 'About Device'. 2nd line shows memory.
You have 2 GB - I promise.
Rather helpfully, you have now installed an app that can clean the crap out, and block those 'self running' apps from trashing your device. Go to the menu and click 'Task Manager' to see all those 300+ apps running and killing your device. You can kill them from here, or put a ES Task Manager widget on the desktop to kill all running apps. You can also block certain apps from running, or set them to be automatically killed (I think).
This will make your Device (and hopefully you) happy
Hope this helps.

Indeed, there was a problem. What I wrote and tried to post simply disappeared into the ether.I have now edited the original post to say what it was that I originally posted (which is that Titanium Backup says nothing about RAM, and asking for a screenshot).

@ twart ,Darth Jabba you are correct ES appears RAM 2 GB.
Now with 323 apps my free RAM was 648 MB then I kill all apps with ES and appears 920 MB.
Is it correct ? What is yours free RAM in a clean installation??
I have done the same in my other Tablet Onda V812 1 GB RAM 16 GB internal SD and with all my application was 680 MB Free and after killing all apps with ES goes to 990 MB .
What is yours opinion concerning that 2 GB Tablet frees 920 MB and 1 GB tablet frees 990 MB????
I thing that somewhere 1 GB RAM in Cube U30GT2 is lost!!!!
You think very much like a Windows user. But there's a difference in memory management between Android and Windows OS. Android also uses a caching mechanism, but compared to Windows, it actualy shows cached memory as allocated. Long story short, the free ram you see in not correct. It aslo includes cached app data, so when you start an app which was recently started, then it will load faster. If there's no ram for starting others apps, the cached memory will be deallocated first, and only after that you'll get hangs, FC's and such. So, ultimately, don't be worried about this free ram information. The tablet has 2GB, of which Android uses about 500MB, and the rest is for your pleasure. Note also than Android "stretches" its appetite for memory when more ram is installed. So, on tablets with 1GB of ram with the same Android version, you'll get the information that less ram is used for the same set of apps. This is again in close connection with the caching mechanism, where not so many apps are cached because of the less ram, so that's why it only appears that the OS is using less ram for its needs. So, relax, no one's stealing your precious ram

kart12, the advice given was to reduce the number of apps you have on one android device, to investigate if any remaining apps are misbehaving and to get minimize widgets/apps that continually auto run or update. These are the first things to do in trying to solve your performance problems.
As stated, the OS and apps are running in only 2GB! Too many or misbehaving apps/widgets will bring android devices to their knees including the pitiful u30gt2.
How the u30gt2 and android work is a great discussion ... but time spent reducing apps and getting rid of misbehaving apps/widgets may help you resolve your issues quicker.
Just found a test version of 4.4 from original forum.
