brother let me tell you something for benefit of your sd card
PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT USE SWAP
it kills your sd card
my 16 gb sd ard class 10 died during swapping
so if you have more money to waste and think you can buy one then go for it otherwise not
please thinks twice before swapping and i dont think 1 gb ram of grand is less then why use this
good luck

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.

sir it may have worked good for you but my sd ard was sandisk 16 gb class 10 i can send you its photo if you dont believe
also swapping increases reading writing cycles of sd card which results in damage

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.

I think the stock kernel does support swap becz if you enter
Cat /proc/cpuinfo you will get the following result and it features it says swp
