First I want to thank you for putting this guide together.

I had a few questions about this guide, though.

1) Which of the partitions it's actually the swap? The reason I ask is that The one labeled swap in the directions you recommended 256 MB, which seems awfully low?

2) What are recommended settings for a balance between utility and gaming?

Doubt regarding swapping memory
Should we keep the swap memory always active or we should use it for a particular purpose and delete it when not needed 🤔
Guide me developers‽

I am using Pixel Experience Rom on Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with 64 GB ROM and 4 GB RAM. I wanted to run heavy games like PUBG on HD Graphics with High Frame rate on this device.
As obvious the game was lagging with that setting. So I installed Roehsoft Ram expander to get additional 4 GB of Virtual RAM. When I chose the option to create a Swap File of 4 GB in Roehsoft RAM expander it said "Kernel Swap Space Limit detected! Please reduce the Swapfile Size lower 1GB! and try
again! " I thought flashing a custom kernel like Franco Kernel would solve this problem but it didn't changed anything .

Anyone have any idea to Bypass this Swap Space limit ?
