I moved your thread to the Galaxy S2 (International) root section where the folks familiar with your device can offer you the help you need.

If you do not have the international version let me know and I can move it to the correct forum.

Shame that you did not root it while you were on Gingerbread. Here is a method for rooting on ICS...

That's normal. There is a lot more RAM needed for ICS than Gingerbread. Don't worry about it. The system is designed to handle it. "Unused RAM, is wasted RAM".

Once you are rooted you can remove some of the bloatware by following the instructions in the Bloatware: Stock app removal guide
