Default RAM EXPANDER will damage Phone?

Yesterday, i just try this app.
my sd card class 4 only... so i change the sd card directory to usb stroage / sd card 0
i don't use that space at all.

What i want to know is, will it damage internal space? or we so called usb stroage.

I'm not that an expert but I don't recommend you try the SWAP SD kind of APP because it may brick your phone !

CyanogenMod 10 Alpha 5 XD

iv been using that app since the last 1 1/2 month.didnt hv any problem.but im using class 10 external sd.in my opinion dont swap memory from your internal sd card nor the phone memory.the swap memory is recommended only for class 6 n above.some said 8 and above.the internal sd card has a class below the requirement n if the internal sd card damages i really didnt know how to get it repaired since it mounted(CMIIW).just make swap from your external sd with class 10 or 8.if your external sd breaks u can easily replaced it.

Please DON'T use your internal storage for this. This type of storage has a limited read/write cycle life span. By using it this way you ARE prematurely "ageing" this storage partition, and WHEN it fails, the repair won't be cheap.....it will definitely be cheaper to buy the correct class of extSD card and use that instead......

I have used this app, and there is some noticeable improvement, but only on class 10 cards. Anything below there will be little to no noticeable performance increase.

But you can always try.
