I think it takes a while to actually swap anything; mine is 0 for awhile but it does creep up. It's at a whopping 76KB now =) I've gone battery crazy lately so I have very little running on the phone when it's idle; no widgets that poll, no temp monitoring, etc. so mine might just have a very small load on the phone requiring little caching/swapping.
I use the hell outta my phone and I am swapping pretty good. So far no performance issues either. I have been beating my phone to death today doing WAY more than I normally would. Flash videos, heavy 3D games, 7 or 8 windows open in the stock browser and Dolphin HD and still no hiccups. Hell if it can take this overly normal abuse and still go like nothing is happening then when I am done with my battery of abuse tests and go back to normal usage I should be even happier!
OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)
LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.
It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.
I added the /system/bin/compcache start to the end of the 01 file, and now it works, and keeps after reboot. It wouldn't even work at all, reboot or not without that.
Yeah, I gave it some time to see if it just wasn't using it and would creep up, but it wasn't using it at all.
Added that /system/bin/compache start to the 01 cpuia file in /etc/init.d. Works right away after reboot, and stays.
LGB 2.6 FTW
Ok, I was unclear; sorry.
- Nandroid backup!
- In root explorer, go to /etc/init.d directory.
- Mount that directory as r/w.
- Open the 01cpuod file in the text editor. (Or, if you've used Pete's "cpuia" script to run the interactive governor, open the "01cpuia" script.)
- Scroll to the bottom of the file.
- Add the line "/system/bin/compcache start" (no quotes!)
- Save the file and exit the editor
- Remove the 01cpuod.bak (or 01cpuia.bak) file, also in root explorer
- Exit root explorer
- reboot the phone
- Profit! (hopefully)
I will say this; those steps are what worked for me and what makes sense given my background in unix hacking. Comes with the usual caveats... backup first, I made my best attempt at correctness here, but I could be wrong, etc.
