Default ICS free ram

I've tried both miui v4 and aurora. I pretty much have less than 10mb free ram all the time. This seems to make multitasking impossible. My music never populates all my tracks.

Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to monitor or fix it?

I pretty much had a fresh install. Plus only a few apps...battery defender, set CPU, rom toolbox. Any free ram just got slowly eaten up until I had none left.

Ahm, i have around 190mb free ram.. so i think your problem is with some app you have installed.. try installing one by one app to see what app eats your ram.. always with no app running in backround...

So I ended up wiping and reflashing - problem still there, no apps installed. Weird.

Back to elite rom - over 100mb free.

if your phone will need more RAM for some programs.. it gonna kills himself unnecessary applications to get more memory.
For example in my CM 7.2 sometimes i got only 20-40mb of free memory, when I launch some game and after few sec I close it, I got about 140-180mb free :]
Android automatically manages the memory... don't worry

I don't even have enough ram to multitask - I listen to music and play games at the same time on other roms no problems, but ICS roms I've tried don't even keep the media scanner open to populate my music player. I have to open it and wait for ages for each artist to slowly appear in the list.

I guess this is becuase it needs ram to do other things so stops the scanning process.
