    Killing tasks

    How do you "kill tasks without an additional app"?

    CyanogenMod7 (at least, the version I use) has an option in applications > dev to force-kill an app by long pressing the back button. I never need a task killer for unresponsive apps

    This is the never ending thread. Maybe we have have found perpetual motion. Attach an engine to this thread and it will never stop.

    I like your train (no pun intended) of thought.

    ... this thread should never end. To this day wireless techs still load ATK or other task killers immediately onto a new phone... which is still, years later, WRONG!

    the native OS can be used to kill unresponsive apps... auto killers are still working against the design of the OS, and wasting our oh-so-precious battery life.

    Its funny because the reason i was worried on my ram on my og Droid had been negated on later handsets, the 256 ram really hurt, but the 512 was way better on my droid2global, and the 1gig on my razr maxx is even better. Makes me wonder of techs still do it on galaxy s3s, with 2 gigs of ram.

    I've been reading a lot of the posts in here. Very interesting stuff. I'm very new to the whole smart phone thing. I have NQ android booster. I'm wondering if this is a good app? And is it "fighting", as its been said against the OS?

    I looked at the stock task manager and it says with the apps that are running there's 1 process and 1 service. What do these mean?

    I wouldn't recommend any booster or task manager. They fight with the OS. Android is designed to allocate memory to active processes and end processes when it needs to free up memory. I've learned to let the OS do what it was built to do

    Another question, is it a bad thing if I were to stop a process for example, in my apps under the "running" section it says mobile instant messaging service has 1 process going. I don't use the mim so does it necessarily need to be running?
