    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.

    Just got it, fails, I have BB 7.7 and can't seem to get wifi to work for me, though I did use the droidrootpro 1.1ghz clock setting, and the wifi fix isn't fixing it =(.

    I'm running BB 8.7 @ 950mhz, works great. Good find OP. For those on BB 7.7... look out, JIT is not stable.

    I couldn't get wifi tethering to work for my until I went to this page: Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code and downloaded the "pre4" file (second from the top). When I looked up the page, I now see there is an even newer version that referenced the Droid. I'm going to download and install it. I'll test it tomorrow.

    JIT appears to be totally stable on 7.7. I would draw the conclusion that MinFreeManager is not stable. Not really. I have a hunch that JIT changes the way Android manages ram and it doesn't jive with MinWhatEver. :)

    Until apps are coded to actually take advantage of JIT, I won't be messing with it. I don't play the benchmarking game ;)

    Just downloaded this app and set it too aggressive and all I can say is wow! I can tell a huge difference even with my phone already OC'ed to 1ghz.

    Ok I was not a believer in this, but it used to take FOREVER for Dolphin Browser to load up, after installing this it loaded in about 1/8th the previous time it took just to open Google.

    I'm seriously impressed, Advanced Task Manager might be out the window if it stays like this and is completely stable.

    ATM has been uninstalled. Hard to believe something that works this well is free.
