What's using up all my RAM?

Running siyah kernel, latest RR update

The task killers.

Why oh why do people still use them, stock android task killer is good enough.

Android knows how to manage running applications by itself. All you're doing by running 3rd party task killer is wasting your battery life... and RAM.

That much? taking me down to 67mb? Surely not. It's never been a problem before.

When you kill an app, you remove it from the memory. This is pointless as an app does not consume battery if kept in the memory. It consumes battery only if it consumes CPU cycles. Everytime you kill processes, you remove it from the memory and since the android OS launches them again there is battery spent in trying to load them again into the memory. Thats why never use task killers as it results in battery drain.

If you wanna see what is consuming your memory, use System Panel from the play store to monitor it.

Use SystemPanel app to check how much ram using each app and services. Inactive (cached) apps tend to eat a lot of ram but this does not affect performance as CPU is not used and the system automatically is freeing up memory when req.

I'm running 3.0.2 on siyah 3.5.2. I love the ROM . I have noticed that when I play flash video in the stock browser when my phone goes to sleep the video just stops dead and I need to unlock to continue watching. not a major issue but it would be cool if the phone would stay awake when watching video like on the stock ICS ROM

Try Dolphin. It seems that it's not sleeping during flash.

"find on page" instantly closes the browser, notifications don't turn on the screen when they come in, but the volume buttons do, there will be more bugs, ive only had the ROM for a day. Is it too much to ask for just a simple bug-fix release, no new features to go wrong, just every now and then!

Also on a side note, on the cm9/10 kernels (as in no ex tweaks) can touch-move sensitivity be changed? 6 is far too low for me, i end up scrolling instead of clicking far too often.

Ignore this post.....all I had to do was take a toothbrush to the earpiece and give it a good cleaning lol....lo-fi solution ftw!!!!

Hi,

I've recently updated from RR 2.6 to RR 3.0.2....

I noticed that my handset ear piece volume was quite low and it was difficult to hear conversations out in public ie traffic etc...

Updated to latest RR with Siyah 4 and still the volume is unbearably low, almost to the point of not being able to have a conversation with anyone unless i'm indoors and in a quiet enviroment....which kind of defeats the purpose of a mobile phone!

I've searched on here and other places for a solution and it seems that the service code *#*#197328640#*#* should allow me to adjust the volumes to an acceptable level....

however, if I press option 5, Audio, it reverts straight back to the original menu....if i press any of the other options ie 1,2,3,4,6 etc they all allow me to enter and carry on. it's just option 5 Audio that I need into and it refuses access....

Any ideas and or solutions to this at all??? Should I start a seperate thread for this or is this a RR specific issue??

Any help is much appreciated!

G

p.s RR is possibly the best ROM i've used on any phone in a long time!!! Keep up the excellent work!

    - Download the latest build
    - Download Gapps
    - Take a nandroid backup
    - Recommended - Full wipe and factory reset
    - Flash ROM using latest ClockworkMod recovery

    -OTA UPDATES-

    - You will get a notification on your phone when a new version of RR ROM is available. You can download the ROM on your phone through the OTA updater.
    - For now, I have made the link to open in a browser as direct links for the ROM zip on file host might not work at times. I might change this to direct downloading of zips in the future.
    - Full ROM will be downloaded, not a delta zip.
    - I haven't tested flashing the ROM using the automated scripts in the OTA updater. Use them at your own risk. I advice you to open recovery manually and flash the ROM manually. If you do decide to test the OTA updater scripts and it works, share with the community.




    IMPORTANT: If you come from another ROM, have some issues or want a really clean installation then follow the 'Extended steps to install the ROM' featured on the General FAQ

    ⊗ General Information ⊗

    « Extended steps to install the ROM

    The steps on the OP are very clear but apparently some users can't get a properly installation so, here are the extended steps for the installation (personally i'm always use this method and never experienced any problem with RR):

    Before of start please remember: If you have / wanna do a Titanium Backup the only safe things to restore when you flash a new version or the ROM are the non-system stuff and the user apps, the non-system stuff are write in Green text, but just restore the data not the app (Examples: SMS - APN - Bookmarks - Alarms). About the user apps, write on White text, you can restore the app+data. Never restore the system stuff, write in Red text, this can cause FC's and other bad behavior.

    After finish your restore reboot the phone.

    Another recordatory: It's recommended before of flash any ROM, made a backup of your EFS folder, this folder contains information about the IMEI, MAC, and other sensitive stuff of your phone, the suggestion it's use EFSPro or you can use KTool, remember that it's not enough with a copy/paste from the original folder. Information provided by raja.7k and Pigmachine

    Now, the steps:

    NOTE 02/10: If you want a really clean installation, check this tip provided by @THE RED BLUR

    1. Reboot into recovery (Turn off your phone then press and hold the keys: Volume Up + Power + Home)
    2. Wipe Data / Factory Reset
    3. Install the Main ROM file
    4. In AROMA installer select "Custom Installation"
    5. Choose depending of your taste
    6. When AROMA installer finish untick the "Reboot Now" option
    7. When you're back on the recovery go to Advanced
    8. Wipe Dalvik Cache
    9. Fix Permissions
    10. Wipe Cache Partition
    11. Reboot
    12. When you get the step for add your Google Account, if you don't have a WiFi enabled or you can' add it, skip it
    13. When you boot into the system, it's probably that you don't have data enabled (3g, H+) just reboot the phone
    14. When you boot again into the system, the data will be enabled and you can do the configuration of Google Account (if you don't do this step before)
    15. This is the moment for install all the extras like themes, mods, fixes, kernels, etc.
    16. ¡Enjoy!

    Just check this post by alex_sp

    « I'm have a several battery draining ¿Why?

    dave7802 give us a very good explanation in this post

    Of course that it's not everything, the kernel have a lot of "guilty" in this issue, after read the feedback of the users personally i think that the top for better battery is:

    1. CM10 Kernel
    2. DarkKnight Kernel
    3. Dorimanx Kernel
    4. Fluxi Kernel
    5. Siyah Kernel
    There are more kernels of course but, again, this it's my top five based on the feedback. Also, this is very subjective, all depends of the customization that you made over the kernel and the most important, every phone and installations are different so, everyone have different results.

    If you want more information about Governors, Kernels, Voltages, etc. please read this post

    If you want some suggestions of configuration for Siyah Kernel take a look here

    And if you want examples of configurations for various kernels go here

    « ¿Where are the Call Recording?

    Unfortunately Call Recording, until now, can't be ported to AOKP, but are alternatives, you can use the app Personal Call and Voice Recorder

    « ¿Where are the Radio FM?

    Resurrection Remix since the v1.2 it's based on AOKP and the radio can't be included, the most used option it's Spirit FM app, you can buy it on the Play Store or visit the original post of his creator here.

    « ¿Where are the files of my External SD?

    On Jelly Bean the external sd it's on the path /sdcard1, there are your files. You can access to this folder with any file explorer (even the stock one). Just open the file manager, select the "mnt" option on the top, the one between the Home icon and SD icon, inside you can find the /sdcard1 folder.

    « The lights of capacitive buttons (Menu and Back) doesn't work properly ¿What can i do?

    You can adjust the behavior if you are using any kernel compatible with the "BLN" function and the correspondant tweaker like: Siyah, Dorimanx or Dream-IRC Kernels + ExTweaks app or Fluxxi Kernel + xxTweaker.

    « The vibration intensity for pulsations it's too high ¿How can reduce that?

    By default it's not possible but, if you are user of Siyah, Dorimanx or Dream-IRC Kernels then you could reduce that via ExTweaks and, if you are using Fluxxi Kernel you can tweak this via xxTweaker app.

    Please remember, ExTweaks only works with Siyah, Dorimanx and Dream-IRC Kernels

    « My signal it's not the best / not work at all ¿What can i do?

    Change your modem, you have several options here, here or here.

    Just remember give it at least 2 days to settle down, then you can judge his performance.

    « My status bar clock frezze it ¿What can i do?

    Check this post, this is a very weird issue and that it's the most used solution.

    « I have duplicates on the files for my music and images ¿What can i do?

    Follow this or this posts.

    « ¿How can i change the bootanimation?

    First of all, i know that are many apps on Play Store that let us make this change but, in the same way that with DPI i prefer make the changes manually always that it's possible so, here are the steps:

    1. Make a backup of the original Bootanimation located on the path /system/media the file it's called bootanimation.zip
    2. Download the animation that you want, on the Mirrors Index we can have some animations made by the users of RR.
    3. Rename the file that you download to bootanimation.zip (in case that the name be different)
    4. Copy the bootanimation.zip to your SD card
    5. Copy the file to the path /system/media, this process need to be made with some file explorer that let you change the permissions from 'Read Only' to 'Read and Write', personally i'm always working with Root Explorer (paid) but if you want, you can use ES File Explorer (free)
    6. Replace the original bootanimation.zip with the one that you download
    7. Reboot and enjoy

    Also, in some of the bootanimations featured on the Mirrors Index i make flashable files through recovery so, this is another option to avoid the manual steps.

    « ¿How can i change the font of the ROM?

    There no are a default setting to make this change, but you can do it with the combo of ROM Toolbox and Font Installer

    If that apps don't work for you, then try the following steps (Steps only for ICS versions):

    1) If you like either of system fonts from Windows (C:\WINDOWS\Fonts) so just drag the selected font to the specific folder, e.g. desktop.
    or
    2) Download your favorite fonts from the website(http://www.fonts2u.com/)
    2-1) just copy the two types of font (especially font in bold is a must (e.g. Verdana.ttf and Verdana-Bold.ttf) to the device with path system/fonts using root explorer.
    2-2) Change Mount R/W as Mount R/O (as you know).
    2-3) Backup the Roboto-Regular.ttf and Roboto-Bold.ttf (because I believe default font in AOKP is Roboto which is a custom font in ICS version) to other folders, then go back to system/fonts to delete it directly.
    2-4) Long click on the selected fonts (verdana.ttf) that you copy from, rename it as Roboto-Regular.ttf and set its permissions as 3R1W.
    2-5) Then, just reboot the phone.

    « ¿How can i use the Theme Chooser?

    Just go to this thread, there you can find the links to some themes that exists for this feature, all with his own instructions, follow it.

    « I'm using Siyah / Dream-IRC kernel and i don't want to see the boot splash ¿How can i deactivate it? (Only if you are not dual booting)

    Just create a file named .nobootlogo in the 'root' of your SD Card with some file explorer like 'ES file explorer' or 'Root Explorer' Thanks to Pigmachine for the tip.

    « ¿How can i get a notification count on my dock icons?

    AOKP don't support this kind of notifications, but you have some alternatives:

    1.- If you are using Go Launcher you can install their app Go Launcher EX Notification

    2.- I know that it's not the same but you can activate the notification count on the status bar from Settings - R-ROM Control - Statusbar - General - Show Notification Count

    Thanks to KeithOYS for the tips.
