    Has anyone used an app called MinFreeManager? I downloaded it from the Market yesterday. It's free but only works on rooted phones. Its function is to improve the task management and task killing feature of the Linux/Android OS thereby freeing-up more RAM. It also eliminates the need for a task killer app.

    Since installing it, I've noticed a significant increase in the Droid's speed. What I've also noticed is an increase in my battery life. So far, I'm getting an extra 1.5 hours of battery life.

    I highly recommend rooted users to give the app a try. Let me know what you think.

    The Droid doesn't slow down due to lack of ram. Its CPU hogging apps that take their toll, and it takes quite a few at that.

    If you are talking about the presets in the app, mines is set on "aggressive."

    It's not a task killer. The Android OS has a built in task manager/killer that shuts down apps to free up memory when needed. MinFreeManager simply runs the Android management system more efficiently.

    I downloaded it and tried it - failed. I am running Bugless Beast 7.7 at 1.2 Ghz with JIT enabled. I think the problem may be the JIT enabled. I think it changes the way ram is managed by the OS.

    I can't imagine any free program could make this droid faster. My lowest setcpu benchmark is a blistering 141. Stock droid is in the 500-600 range (think - that was a long time ago).

    It's one word: MinFreeManager. I just looked and it's still there.
