Important: Use cleanRAM at your own risk!!! NO WARRANTY!!!
Although running this application does not seem to make any damage, I take no responsibility for any kind of damage caused to the device or data due to this application.

Installation Instructions:

1. Download the latest attached ZIP file from htcAddicts website or from this post (click on "Download" button).
2. Extract the ZIP file into some temporary folder on your PC.
3. Copy the "" file (from the ZIP file) into some temporary folder on your device (use ActiveSync).
4. Execute "" from your device (use file explorer), recommend you install cleanRAM to device memory.
  • .cab is the zipped file along with the Readme and License text files.
  • After installation completed you find two links created, one called: "cleanRAM Config" (configuration tool) in the "Start Menu -> Programs" and the second called: "cleanRAM" (is the actual memory reclaimer) in the "Start Menu".
  • cleanRAM will be installed into /Program files/htcAddicts folder.

Uninstall Instructions:

1. Run cleanRAM Configuration.
2. Menu -> Schedule.
3. Uncheck the Enabled button (if checked).
4. Close.
5. "Start" -> "Settings" -> "System" -> "Remove Programs".
6. Select and Uninstall "htcAddicts cleanRAM".

The Settings Screen with Geneal, Advanced, GUI/Shell and Language Tabs

  • I want more RAM cleaning, what can I do?
    • You can give more power for RAM cleaning by settings: "Close All Applications" + "Launch Startup Programs" (this option is for advanced users).
    • You need to define your device's GUI. Menu -> "Settings" -> "GUI" (see "Backup / Restore & GUI support" section).
  • Do you need more speed? To get higher cleaning speed you will need unchecked (disabled) the settings: "Show RAM Status Notification" (quiet mode).
  • your device crashes or getting stuck after clean-up is done? This issue happens because when cleanRAM trying to clean some share applications from device's memory them stuck your device. You can avoid this by using "Exceptions List" feature (note that, you can also use exceptions.ini file to add exceptions). For more information, read post #622.
  • You have issues with the scheduler feature (like error #139)? Check maybe you have a wrong date/time format (under regional settings), please read post #663.
  • How to load settings (from "Backup / Restore" feature)? Follow these instructions from post #798.
  • What are the best & recommended settings for HTC HD2 (HTC Sense)? Post #724.
  • Where can I learn more? For more informations and introductions please read the manual on this post. After cleanRAM installed for the first time on your device you will get the default settings (like safe mode settings), it's good but for some users is not good enough, it will work only on 60% of cleanRAM power. if you want to learn how to make cleanRAM more effective and more powerfully (like the features: "Close All Applications", "Launch Startup Programs" and "Exceptions List") you will need to read the manual and please before asking question, make a quick search on this thread.


Windows Mobile Pocket PC 5.0+

Post How to translating a new language file?

Here is the english translation file, now you can change the text values to your language.

Add New Language:

1. Download the latest translation file - []
2. Extract the file to temporary folder
3. Rename english.ini file to <your language>.ini file
4. Edit and Translate your new language ini file
5. Finally, copy the new language ini file into "\Program Files\cleanRAM\Lang" folder on your device.
  • Please! when you translate the text strings, please make sure for fit the size of the characters like in my example (english) lang file.

Edit Translation File (ini file):

1. [English] = [<your language>]
2. ConfigurationMenu = <your new translation text> -->> please fit your words size (string length) like mine.
  • The language file and the section name need to be the same name!
  • Please, when you translate the text strings, please make sure for fit the size of the characters like in my example (english) lang file.
  • Save the file in UTF-8 format (notepad -> save as... -> Encoding).
  • If you can, upload your translation language file to this thread and if you already did so in the past and you want to upload a new translation language file just make sure to upload/update to your previous post.

Thanks for the new 1.3.0!

All the previous versions worked fine, but while the configuration also works fine in 1.3.0, starting a level 2 clean gives me the following error on my Diamond running 6.1..


Aside from that, what do you mean with "save battery"? Will Wake Up Device Before CleanUp actually save battery? And if so, can you explain how?
