Create a file local.prop in /data

Open it with text editor and add the following line :

For phone :-

Code:
sys.keep_app_1=com.android.contacts

for any other app

Code:
sys.keep_app_1=com.example.app

What about this kanpurite? If we need to set specific permissions which i haven't done, i am living with a placebo effect here. :silly::p But seriously now i kept my cell on standby for about an hour, and then tried opening phone, contacts and messaging apps.. BAM.... They open within a split second..

EDIT::)

when you create local.prop it already has the minimum permissions set (666).
so i don't think there is need to set any permissions.

It keeps your app's in memory all the time.
you can try it if your app's load slowly.

go to /data folder using any file explorer.
create a new file named 'local.prop'.

open it with text editor and add these lines :

sys.keep_app_1=com.android.contacts

sys.keep_app_2=com.android.mms




now save and reboot.

Thanks a lot!
Hope discussion in the main thread wil be over now.
I was in the ' camp' a phone is (still) a phone primarily (for me at least)....

Guys, the path is in the phone's memory. The / sign means the root of that file system.
To make it clear: if you put that file on the SD card the phone will EXPLODE :D.
