[L9 II] Possible mediaserver memory leak?
This issue has been haunting me for a while now. I never really knew that it was the mediaserver but i found out like a week ago. Basically the mediaserver ram usage extends to maximum possible (it was 120mb once) and making multitasking or even general usage of the phone unusable
. Even if i open dialer and then close it right away, the home screen has to reload
. The ram is simply full because of this. It doesn't matter if i listen to music, watch videos or even TOUCH the phone
, it always happens after a while. When i restart the phone, the mediaserver memory goes back to normal (around 8mb). I've read somewhere that corrupt media can cause this and i can assure you that my sdcard doesn't have any. Plus the mediaserver uses some processor too. That results in stutters on the lg interface. Here is a screenshot (please note that it's 60mb on there but over time it climbs up to 100+ mb
filling the whole ram)
Oh and this is a stock KK 20a
One this that helps is the Mediaserver Killer
. Well.. not quite. After i kill the media server, i cannot hear anything in the earpiece while on call. This is resolved ONLY
if i restart the phone (which i've been doing quite a lot lately)
(Don't tell me to factory reset my phone. I've been doing this quite a lot lately and i'm tired of backing up my apps and data)
I'd really like to find out what could be causing it. I'll provide more resources if you need them.
Edit: I found a file called external.db
on my internal memory, what is it? (It's over 6mb big)
