Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (7.0) RAM

I'm asking this question for a friend that has this tablet:


Does anyone know if there's anyway to improve the RAM of the Tab 3 (7.0). Since this is a Linux type kernel can you do swap space like a normal Linux OS or is there something that can be done? I have already rooted the device for him and froze/deleted all the bloatware apps. He is attempting to play Shadowrun returns which requires 1 GB of ram to function properly. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. He is looking for something to do to prevent having to buy another tablet.

Along those lines I use two Apps.

SD Booster:

and Overclock Booster:

I have yet to play a game I can not play.

Not especially the pc version of that game is better anyway. There is swap2sd and other things to help but the cpu in the 7 inch tab 3 is going to limit how much you can help him.

Yeah that's pretty much what I thought. Told him to go swap it out for the new Asus Nexus Tablet which has 2 gig of ram or a similar model. He went and traded it in last night. Appreciate everyones help.

Yeah I wish I would have looked around before buying mine I would have picked up the Asus memo 7 inch for 50 less.

What do you put the over clock to? I can't find a happy medium (speed and safe temp)
