    use any file explorer with root access (root explorer) and navigate to the system folder.
    you'll see on the top right of this program's interface there will be a little tab that you can press, you want it to go from r/o to r/w (read only to read/write).
    in the system folder will be a file 'build.prop'. long press it and scroll down through options to open in text editor. you'll have to do some looking around but there should be a part that says vm heapsize=32mb or something like that. shouldn't be too hard to find. change it, save and exit and remount to r/o. changes are applied on reboot.

    hope that was helpful.

    Added that or modified every .prop file. And the system isn't reflecting the change after rebooting. I also tried modifying then deleting davlik cache, and no luck.

    Before you modify it, check out this thread over at XDA. They say bigger doesn't mean better.
