About the project
Low-RAM Property Patcher is made to give Android Oreo users an easy control
over the low-ram property from the Go configuration, responsible for the UI changes of Go.

Its purpose is to simply enable or disable the low-ram property from the build.prop,
but also to retain this user decision through the ROM upgrades (new releases, OTA)...

Users just need to flash the patcher to enable or disable the low-ram property on their system,
and to ensure the future ROM upgrades will retain this choice, just like GApps thanks to backuptool.

Developers should get less requests to compile with or without Go just because one user
wants to have a feature (multitasking for example) re-enabled or to force low-ram changes.

The target system is Oreo, but the low-ram property was introduced since Android KitKat 4.4,
therefore it should work on other versions, unless the ROM developers (official Stock OEM, custom ROMs, ...)
did not validate the low-RAM UI changes (recent apps UI mostly) against the additions they made.

Features affected by the low-ram property: Flat recent / multitasking UI,
multi-users disabled, high-end graphics disabled, less recent apps cache,
multi-windows disabled, minor notification icons changes, less logger buffer sizes (devs),
no apps notifications access / zen access / VR listeners / picture in picture (PIP) accesses.

Is there any use of flashing this on 3gb ram devices,or this is strictly for low ram devices?
Thanks for your work,though.
