I've tried my cm11 roms on my sola but i couldnt find a way to increase virtual ram.
on stock based roms i was using rheosoft ram expander which really helped me but its not working on any cm11 rom.
it says invalid argument.

Hello

CM11 has a kernel that works a little differently compared to others (ICS/JB): The "virtual memory" (swap space) created by your app is stored in a file in the SD card.
The new CM11 kernel has not allowed to use files as virtual memory (it's unstable and dangerous).
If you insist and want to swap memory, creates the virtual memory space on a partition of the SD card (a little complicated), or use loop files (not recommended, unstable & dangerous).
Anyway, not sure if the program you are using will allow you to do that.
