Trust me, this is the best! Have tested it repeatedly, and yet get the best performance on my Motorola XT502 and Motorola Cliq/Dext (MB200) phones.
What’s it? It’s a script from Juwe11 (XDA-developers member) that optimizes the memory based on the actual requirement; launching an app, multitasking or running background services. Now, I really don’t require a separate task manager app to free up memory!
How to install?
Downloadthe zip file ( link updated – 19 September 2011, it’s now an APP on the Android Market!)
- Extract the script file and copy it to the root of your SD card
- Use root explorer to move the file to /system/etc/init.d folder
- Set the file permissions to 777 (rwxrwxrwx)
If you have System Panel Lite, check the memory usage. Mine went from 43 M available to 75 M available on my Motorola XT502, and from 65 M available to 99 M on the Motorola Cliq/Dext. Not just that, I’m noticing an increase in overall performance!
Freeing up too much memory is not the goal here – if so, it will only slow down the phone. This script here provides the best balance!
Try it, you won’t regret!
NOTE: If you get ‘read only’ error while trying to paste inside init.d, make sure you’re mounted as R/W and not R/O (look at the top right corner of the root explorer screen).
