Unfortunately not, to fix that you'd need to find the source of the leak and correct it

No problem The thing is, we have a certain amount of RAM at our disposal, plus our devices are getting faster and faster, getting more and more cores, but not that much RAM increase.

Let me illustrate my point :

htc HD2 (my frist device to run Android) - 2009

RAM : 448 MB usable
CPU : 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon (single core)

SGS3 - 2012

RAM : 778 MB usable
CPU : 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9

So CPU speed is up by way much more than RAM, and I'm not taking GPU into consideration, plus storage speed increase etc...

Now those devices tend to be used in multitasking, having many apps running at the same time.

What those need is :

- CPU power to run on (we have plenty !)
- RAM to fit in (we have little)

Now even though an APP is running, not every bit of it is really needed, so those parts can be swapped out (put into swap) freeing these memory blocks and making room for more apps to fit in RAM.

So what will this mod do for you : Allow for more multitasking

Keep more apps running in RAM at the same time, making the device snappier when switching from one app to the other.

One app won't run faster !

If now you don't have swap, Android will have to gently ask the least used app to please close (save data, and quit) to free up RAM. Now when you get back to that app, Android will have to reload it, the app will start and reload it's data.

You can see, this will take more time.

Hope this isn't too confusing

I have a question before i attempt setting this up.

How do we identify which partition on the card is supposed to be for swap?
I have a 64gb sandisk card and say i make two partitions, one massive one for data and a 2gb one on the end for swap, how do i identify to android that the 2gb one is for swap? Also, what format should the partition be?

Cheers.

The script handles finding the partition

All you need to do is partition your card and be sure the swap partition is :

- a primary partition
- of type "Linux Swap"
