    Has anyone come accross problems with the facebook app on 3.3.1? I keep getting fc's when trying to view profiles. Looking through my contacts some have their profile pics but some dont. I tried clearing the cache and data, reinstalling facebook and even fix permissions under the command menu and nothing seems to fix it. I dont use the fb app much but i've always like that my contact pics sync with everyone profiles.

    The weather channel app closes on me sometimes too. I use the fancy widget and have it set to open the weather channel app when I tap on it. Sometimes it works just fine but other times once it loads the weather or if I click on the 10 day forcast it closes out comepletely.

    Yup just use Root explorer, & once pasted u may have to change the permissions, use root explorer to do that as well, if unsure what to change the permissions to, just set them the same as the other apps....

    Facebook is screwed up, I hope its the app, lots of negative comments listed in the market on it, though it seems to be working fine on the wifes incred.

    Must say, phone seems snappier with those settings using "autokiller" and so far "widget locker" has been cooperating.

    Only problem I have now is a lag with "launcher pro" Sux because it used to be so smooth but somewhere along these multiple UD updates it has started to be sluggish.

    I uzed to go back & forth between LP & ADW trying to decide on just one so.I could remove the other simply for the space, overall I just never found myself "impressed" with LP, so I splurged & went one step further & got ADW Ex & Ive never looked back, so far Ive been plenty happy wirh the additional features that Ex has.

    I just noticed in your signature that you have listed UD 3.3.1 & Sapphire kernel, with that kernel does your usb tethering work & is your droid able to connect via usb to yer pc & transfer files between the two?

    Low Memory Manager A Brief Explanation

    This in no way is meant to be a techincal description of how androids low memory manager operates, in fact I just wrote this up very quickly in as simple of terms to remind myself on how it works, so im sorry in advance for all the typos.

    In laymans terms the following is a brief introduction of what it does how android low memory manager works:

    All applications will fall into one of the following 6 catagories: Foreground Apps, Visible Apps, Secondary Server, Hidden Apps, Content Provider, Empty Apps.

    Each catagory is assigned a static threshold value and if and when memory levels fall below that value, starting with the least critical catagory "Empty Apps" the os will begin terminating those apps until enough memory becomes available.

    Then if memory levels continue to run out, the os will then move onto the next catagory down the line "Content Provider" and begin terminating apps the same way & so on & so until required memory levels are reached.

    So say we have the empty apps set at 42mb, content provider set at 32mb, hidden apps set at 28mb, secondary server set at 22mb, visible apps set at 10mb, & forground apps set at 6mb.

    So if & or when available memory levels fall below 42mb the os will begin killing apps in the empty app category, & if available memory falls below 32mb the os will begin terminating apps in the content provider, if available memory falls below 28mb hidden apps get killed, if available memory falls below 22mb secondary server apps get killed, if available memory falls below 10mb visible apps get killed & if memory falls below 6mb visible apps begin getting killed.

    So its very easy to see how having any of those values set to high can really affect things, not so much in the empty app category (but thats a double edge sword on its own) but if things get down to the bottom 3 is when the user will be most affected.

    Now, some say to keep the empty app category set higher, to keep things free which in theory would help to yor droid snappy, but on the flipside having it set to high can & will result in an over active minfree killer which in theory would have a negative affect on battery life.

    I had the same problem about a week or so ago on UD3.3. I tried everything I could think of to fix it but nothing worked. Finally I downloaded the zip again and flashed the new zip and I was able to mount again.

    The sig isn't accurate for the time being though. Been switching kernels all day trying to find one that helps with my launcher pro lag. But mounting via USB to PC was fine with the sapphire kernel.

    After further review of the auto killer app, I've opened up a can of worms for myself.

    1. I didn't realize how much ram my apps use.

    2. Widget locker is, in fact, closing all the time because of the little ram available.

    3. There's some apps I have that run in the background for no apparent reason. I stop them, they restart. What's up with that?

    4. Its a pain trying to configure the auto killer settings just right (I wish there was a way to choose what will close and what will keep running if space gets low.

    5. Last but not least...its time for a new phone with more ram. I have an upgrade available but nothing on the market that "wows" me

    On 3.1and 3.3 when I touched the phone icon it took me directly to the dialer every time, now on nightly #12 and 3.3.1 it takes me to contacts and then I have to select the dialer from there. Is there a way to fix this? I find it incredibly annoying.

    I agree with your 5th statement...I have an upgrade available but none of the phones are appealing now that 4g lte is becoming more available
