Did any of you have any experience with OOM groupings in Android?
It would be interesting to discuss it here and find a perfect tweak for our Infinity/ies.

Out of memory grouping is Androids way of saving ram by killing applications, when your ram is getting full. When setting prioritys, you can prevent this happening for certain applications.

Oh, that's interesting. I didn't think that this tablet could really have a hard time with memory though, I don't have it on my Bionic.

For now I'm only using apps from the market to change the minfree values (could be done from commandline, but I like to have GUI for that, as it's less likely I'll mess it up). I followed the values proposed by the author of SuperCharge (which are also not his, but use some minfree calculator) for 1GB RAM and set it to 8,16,200,220,240,275 (explanation here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=622666)
But there are other tweaks that can be done with it, I believe, that's why I asked..
