I present you a flashable zip for Google's low ram booster. I flashed it over my current N ROM. Plainly, it works. My hammerhead felt like a near flagship again!

Downside; superduperglitchy

No system crashes. FC a couple gaps, some navbar issues. Not, however, unusable.

I tried flashing over my current ROM, flashing at different points during new ROM install, with and with without reboot to recovery at different points during install. With and without custom kernels.

... All to no avail.

So, I entrust my discovery (I hesitate to call it that) to my beloved Dev community.

Happy flashing.

All credit to those applicable as mentioned in the link provided.

So, basically, add ro.config.low_ram=true to build.prop.

Found this too;
"This will affect the multi-users disabled, Flat recent/multitasking UI, high-end graphics disabled,
multi-windows disabled, less recent apps cache, minor notification icons changes, no apps notifications access/zen access / VR listeners/picture in picture (PIP) accesses, less logger buffer sizes (devs)."
On;

I checked the script, it just adds that to build.prop.

What that does effectively, that's another story.

This setting has existed since kitkat, back then it was a few tweaks to low ram devices, but since Android 8.1, it's also called Android Go.

I'd read that too.
IMO aside from the battery life being so short, I've been finding more and more that ram is becoming an issue too. Be it by limitation or resource drain, CPU and by proxy battery. I don't see much anymore done in the way of zram or its still implemented and I'm missing it altogether.
At the moment I'm kicking out ideas.

Not sure why, but the link jumps to an off topic thread. 😒
Did find it though! Thank you!

Deleted additional rambling.

I didn't have issues with FC until I flashed the ram booster.

Edit
Looks like the link was pulled and the git was closed. Anyone have the swap torpedo module?

Found this researching on Google.
Using some of the buildprops now and its had the most impact above all else I've tried.
