More RAM usage doesn't necessarily mean more battery drain - it all boils down what the elevated RAM usage relates and what the apps using the RAM do. If it is "hogged" by lots of apps then you need to sort out what the apps are actually doing ... if they sync data or perform other tasks that keep you phone "busy" while sleeping you better expect a higher bat drain. Same goes for a large app (i.e. Skype) in case it keeps the WiFi going.

In short ... a higher RAM usage doesn't automatically leads to a faster battery drain, it only leads to it when the app(s) are keeping the CPU busy.

So it is confirmed. Thanks for the great answer. Just last question. There is this service on facebook called Upload Manager that runs as service. Is that a resource hog that can lead to drain(CPU USAGE) and ram hog?

Sorry, I don't use Facebook, or any other social networks for that matter.

If the Facebook app causes battery drain for you then uninstall and observe the discharge without it being installed.

I have mentioned this before in this thread. When I was trying out GDX V23. GPS doesn't give proper location on Google maps. Same prob with GDX V25. Now you might say it has nothing to do with the ROM as you guys said before, but how come the same modded Google map Works properly and gives the correct location in other ROMS I've tried?

I really don't know what damn happened but after a reboot... 80% of my downloaded apps are magically disapperead!
They apperead only in "manage application" without their own icons..

And more, but this is another problem, after changing my modem because the old one was broken, my phone refuses to connect (except rare times but it stays up few seconds) to the wifi network and in this way I'm not even able to download my apps manually!

I would break my head against my room wall... believe me!
I'm really sorry for this post but I don't know what to do...

That has happened to me to and it is because your sdcard if you check /mnt/asec Where the moved apps are located you will see that they arent there But if you check /data/data you will se the app data there so when you download the apps again the data will be there

Thanks mate.
I'll try to do that...

That's incredible. My wifi now works but when I try to (re)install one of my lost apps from play store, my phone freezes or reboot itself...
So, is this last thing I can do before full-wipe?

If you're using a modded GMaps version then you're on your own, buddy.

Google Maps (the GENUINE one) on GingerDX v025 (on Stock Kernel) pin-points my EXACT location within a 15m error margin - no matter where I fire it up to have it tell me where I am. EDIT: Actually Maps ALWAYS worked reliable for me from GingerDX v009 (first version I used) up to the current one.

I've no idea why it doesn't work for some, but it sure IS connected to some odd problems caused by star constellation, moon phase and humidity. In other words: Logfiles or figure it out yourself what causes the problem.
