Can anyone open a terminal real quick and type "free"?
What is total, used, and free?
I'll do it if you tell me how to open a terminal.
I grabbed a terminal emulator and typed free, but the response was permission denied
Ohhh yeah, needs root. Forgot about that.
Ok, what about running TasKiller (from Market) and killing all running applications. How much memory is left over? On my G1, the most I've ever had is 48, but usually around 36-42.
Get an app called "Read-System" with that you can see the meminfo.
well on my setup (moto droid) i have at startup about 110 Mb of ram free then viz various mem leaks for some of my apps it rounds down to about 83-85 and levels out there
If you aren't having performance issues with your Droid, I wouldn't worry about how much free memory you have free. The Android OS is built to pull more memory as needed.
My moto assuming no memory leaks is "Memory Used = Time Saved" since active swap/cache helps apps load and respond faster.
