Hello,

I'm using an app called RAM EXpander to increase swap in order to unlag my phone wich is running many many apps...

IM using an Xperia S and it doesnt have much ram, and this was the only solution to keep everything running and to not make lag in my phone..

So the question is, how safe can be the use of this kind of apps in relation of the flash memory usage (readings/writings)..

AFAIK it'll do some harm in the long term, but what long term means?? 2 years? 1 month and it'll kill my phone flash memory?? 10 years??

I've seen in XDA and all over the web, people that comment on how bad is using flash as a swap because of the writing limitations in flash memory, but still havent seen an actual case of a dead flash memory... LOL

thank you in advance
