    I am running SholesMod 145 (2.0.2) I am running the cpu at between 800 and 1000 (just lowered to 800 to see if it helped (no). Is there a particular app i have below or anything in all the 2.1 stuff that is hard on RAM. How can I increase the RAM on the phone. Twice in the last week it has told me my RAM is low. I have run ATK right before I took the picture so most every app was closed and jumped from 32 free to 42 free.
    Anybody have any suggestions or an i just being an*l about it.
    If interested this app is Android System Info on the market and has way more info than I should ba allowed to have... :icon_ banana:[​IMG]

    the RAM is hardwired inside on the phone, and cannot be altered... unless you are a very skilled engineer that can handle a microscope

    So I'm assuming then it's ok for it to run at (15-18%) and not to worry about it.
    I was thinking i had something loaded that I could delete that may be hogging up a lot of the RAM.
    Everything switches very fast on Sholes in and out of apps, I was just concerned by how low it was percentage wise

    basically it doesn't matter if you have 1mb free or 100mb free... there is a saying: "Free RAM is wasted RAM"... it should run at the same speed either way... however it is disappointing that the Droid has only 256mb... but i have never ran out of RAM yet

    When the system runs out of memory, it forces a background application to close and frees up memory. Works well most of the time, except when it kills my IM client or something else I want open when I am switching between the web browser and VNC, or some other memory intensive apps. I really wish this phone had 512mb.
