This kernel focuses on MAX USABLE RAM. As we know, the GNex has 1GB of RAM. A big part of it (300+ MB) is reserved for various things.
Is it really needed? No, it looks like that actual usable RAM can be much much more.
1) First kernel with the pioneering RAM reclaiming: from 693 --> 773 MB RAM.
2) Most available RAM: Still has the most RAM available.
3) Flexibility: Choose any of the 3 variations that suits you
4) Sophisticated ZRAM mechanism: zsmalloc from Linux kernel 3.11, enhanced zram mem operations
5) First and only kernel at the moment with huge 50%+ memory performance boost
As of v10, three (3) variations of Mpokang kernel for everyone to choose according to his needs.
Performance is the same, only the available RAM changes:
SuperRAM: 773 MB RAM -- Some rare video apps (or the gay CM video camera) may not work properly.
CM "gay" : 762 MB RAM -- All video apps work OK but still 720p, suitable for CM based roms.
1080p version: 751 MB RAM -- 1080p fully working, compatible with everything, even Android 4.2.2. Does not contain ramdisk. Clean rom installation required.
To sum up: For Android 4.3 all variations are applicable. For Android 4.2.2 ONLY the 1080p variation applies.
Note 2: Interactive gov from kernel 3.4, hyper gov and SIOPlus, deadline and row are the best out there. Maybe FIOPS on the future.
Note 3: In general .. more useless stuff removed equals more RAM. This does not apply to the SuperRAM variation, where many many features can be added as modules without reducing the available memory.

Q: When using SuperRAM version I have trouble running apps like Video editor, video calling in some apps.
A: Some rare apps don't like this extreme RAM reclaiming. Use another variation.
Q: My screen colors seem a bit changed. Even if I change them like I used to in TricksterMod...
A: It's because of Purple Tint Fix. Many users experience that ugly tint, and this kernel cures it. Slightly change your color settings in Trickster. If, whatever you do, the colors look bad, report it here and I will see what I can do.
Q: I want the full 1GB of RAM. Is this possible?
A: No, full 1GB is unachievable (with TI's ION code). But if someone is willing to drop all the media support (camera, video, media playback) close to 900MB is achievable.
