theres always been this question in the back of my head when im studying over modes... should i memorize all of those intervals? because i've heard that just memorizing the finger patterns on the fretboard is a bad habit, so how should i go about memorizing them?

memorizing intervals =/= memorizing finger patterns, CC.

When you memorize the patterns, you end up depending on them and forget you are playing in a scale, you are playing in that one pattern you practised once. By learning the intervals, it allows you to be more creative, and it's not really a finger pattern as such that with the intervals you can play a mode anywhere, with any note per string combination, pretty much instantly.

Start with the major scale - seeing as the modes are just the major scale viewed in a different way. If you know the major scale intervals inside out you can "see" the modes a lot easier.

Do you know it all over the fretboard? Do you know the intervals that it is made of?

I only really know the finger positions of all the modes, but i found i played alot better when i realised how all the modes go together. Like, if a begin playing in D Aeolian, I soon realised that the Locrian position is right next to it, the Major and Dorian and everything, so by learning the positions, you kind of can learn the scales all up the neck, but I've never tried memorizing all the intervals so I dont know which is better...

Knowing the intervals will help a lot for soloing/improvising. Knowing how scales will bring out certain flavors over different chords because of the intervals is pretty useful.
