That RAM swapper will not work for our grand duos, mainly because we currently do not have a custom kernel (you need a custom kernel has SWAP support) for this application to work.
I can go into detail and explain how it works anyway if you like but the basic thing is, that application will not work on our sgg.
Try their second application - Memory Swap checker, to confirm what I'm telling you - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ehsoft.meminfo
I disagree with @aditya rathee about the dying sd card due to swap, if done right it works like a charm. I have used swap on several of my phones as well as this particular application on my Xperia J. It simply uses the empty space from your sd card to create swap file and uses it as virtual RAM for your applications to run in the background. Usually it is adviced to use Class 6+ SD card for these kind of things, but minimum requirement is Class 4. Personally I have tested it on Class 6 and currently using it on Class 10 SD card.
I'm not disagreeing with you on the fact that swapping decreases the life of the sd card. Yes, sd cards are made in a way that they have only so many read/write cycles, and using them for swap will essentially allow your system and applications to use that swap file/partition over and over again which would decrease the life of your sd card in the long term but NOT right away. You definitely would need to replace your sd card after a year maybe two depending on your usage but that's the cost you have to pay if you need more virtual RAM.
In your previous post you mentioned that your sd card died "during" swapping. That happening is very very unlikely, unless you had really bad luck or you were using an old SD card that had already been used a lot.
