I tried using SWAP if you mean the same. It's possible even on stock kernel. Boosted my RAM upto 3GB but hardly could notice any difference. 1080p videos still wasn't playing smooth.

Anyways, you can go ahead and try on stock kernel. I used that for 2 days didn't feel any notice so switched back as someone said (at facebook) that he also did that to his memory card and it got corrupt after using 2 months.

Expanding ram will not make phone play 1080p videos instantly...its merely CPU GPU stuff.....it can only provide some more space to run apps!!


XL has a 1GB of ram....out of which 800 MB is user acessible!!

Ya figured that! the reason 1080p videos doesn't work is because Sony underclocked the processor to 1ghz. As we have seen in custom kernels overclocking helps in 1080p video playback

Well I don't think playing a 1080p video on a non HD screen gives a better viewing experiance

ans: use thunderzap4.1 kernel which support zswap...by overclocking cpu 1080p video playback will support, but screen resolution will stay same as stock...no need for 1080p.
