*Note to moderators: Please do not close this thread, I am aware that there is already thread called "Anroid 5.1.1 memory leak still present. Incredible!" but this thread will focus on solving this issue as quick as possible and getting attention of highly good developers and people which can give information for solving this issue ASAP

This thread will be official thread for all Nexus 5 advanced (developers) users which got affected by this issue.
First of all please do not spam and post useless information about how you also have memory leak and asking how to fix it. Post only useful stuff, like logcat and such stuff which can help google developers solve this annoying bug.

I reported this issue to google with good amount of information and I am willing to keep that report updated with latest highly detailed information, link:
https://code.google.com/p/android/is...&ts=1430506443
Please star this so we can get quick attention from google and assign it as high priority bug. You can star it by clicking on star top-left on the page.

- For users which seem not to have this issue please Download Farm Heroes Saga from play store. Run it until game loads, then remove it from multitasking menu completely and then run game until it loads, remove it from multitasking menu again and do that about 10-15 times. If your ram doesn't go up to 900 and higher please post logcat if you know how to and also screenshot of default memory and cached memory.

If this is only happening with one piece of software, that means it's down to the software not Android

What else is there? it seems a lot of people confuse memory leaking with RAM caching, RAM is much faster than eMMC therefore it's cached to RAM.
I'm personally not seeing a leak with 5.1.1

Not to the degree of 5.1 which does have a leak, Applications can leak memory too.

I installed CM 12.1 latest nightly CAF and AOSP and tried doing farm heroes saga method. My ram went to 1.4 by repeating it 10 times. And also by using phone 3-4 days, system memory goes up to 1 GB and I'm not talking about cached memory

But the OS is at fault for not clearing that memory allocation it uses for X app when it's long gone and not in use/closed.

Have anyone tried to hunt memory leaks with kmemleak? I would do that if I had enough time, maybe next week.
