Angry Increase RAM Size by swapping your s6810 :) !
By default, Galaxy Fame only comes with 100MB for RAM swapping (545MB total RAM)... now it's time to change that !
Note: I installed PurePerformancesX on the phone, but you can try without installing that.

Changing RAM Swap size on s6810:

Install Swapper2 from the store, open it and press Ads Off button.
Press Left touch button on the phone to show Settings tab and change next options:
  • Run Swapper at Startup > must be turned on.
  • Swappiness > User preference (I set 100 and everything is going smooth & faster!)
Now choose only one of the following methods:

METHOD 1: Simple File Usage:
  • Type in Swap place: /storage/extSdCard/swapfile.swp (this will make a swap file on external SD Card).
  • Swap Size > User preference (I set 196MB, so my total RAM will be around 735MB... you can set more size!)
  • Safe Unmount > turn on.
  • Safe Remount > turn on.

METHOD 2: External SD Partition Usage:

You must have 2 primary partitions on your SD Card: [FAT][Linux Swap]
where [Linux Swap] partition will be your swap partition.

Go to Advanced Preferences and change next options:
  • Use Swap Partition: must be turned on.
  • Type in Swap Partition: /dev/block/mmcblk1p2
  • Recreate Swap: turn off
  • Reformat Swap: turn off

After finishing any method, go back to main screen and press ON button. Wait a few seconds to finish... magic is done!!!



If none of both methods worked for you, then try this method:

METHOD 3: Full ZRAM Usage & Swap Partition:

This method doesn't require Swapper2, but it requires both primary partitions [FAT]+[Linux Swap] on your SD Card.
It uses an advanced script to improve your Zram usage from 100MB to 140MB (max capacity) !
Personally, I use this method since it looks like it's the best one in terms of performance & speed.
  • Uninstall Swapper2 (if you already installed it) and reboot your phone.
  • Download & install SManager app.
  • Download the attached script from below or just press [HERE] and unzip it.
  • Open SManager and choose that script.
  • On script settings activate Android Pirate (SU) and Gear (Boot) icons & press Save.
  • Reboot, wait for boot changes & enjoy more RAM !

PS. Press "Thanks" button if you find this very useful !
