Hello!

I bring to your attention a small script to change the size of PagePool directly on the device.

The script allows to replace the size PagePool From 2.00 to 16.00th mbyte without a reflash of the device and loss of data.
After work of a script it is enough to make a soft reset to the device.

In a script is implemented the algorithm of automatic search of the address of offset and check result of search with use of check value on algorithm MD5 . In this mode every possible checks are made so much what kill the device practically not possible.

Also there is a possibility of instructions of own displacement of value of the size PagePool In a case when automatic search cannot find out it. In this mode value to the specified address is checked only. And if it not in the range of values of the size PagePool from 2 to 16, script also refuses to make changes to a device insertion.

The script is checked up with several firmwares and devices.

If program can't autodetect offset value of PagePool, generate "dev info"
and provide it to me. Im add your device in autodetection feature.

Thankful in advance for responses about work of a script and the help in perfection of this.

Screenshots and script are applied

P.S. Sorry for bad english

latest version available at ftp://intruder.spb.ru/PPSmartChanger.exe

If I correctly have understood you, I answer :)
PagePool it is area which it is used by system for caching various information. The size of accessible RAM depends on the size of this area for. As a rule this value selects everyone under itself individually. Someone uses the big programs which is necessary a lot of memory, and someone a much small programms.
As the program allows to change this value without loss of data, it is possible to experiment.
If has worked address autodetection that all it should be good.
If has not worked, I need info about your device and firmware to try add your device to autodetection.

You can change the size of PagePool as many times as you need without any limits.

Version updated:
1. Improved method of info retrival from device.
2. Added multidevices support.
3. EXPERIMENTAL: Added support of WM6 on FS LOOX C550 (can't test on device, my device HTC Touch)

So, what would be the best size for the Touch? I know it should be smaller, I've read 4MB somewhere but is that best or at least better than original?

I'm using BatteryStatus with enabled CPUScaler and I noticed when I change the PagePool size to 4 Mb, TCPMP player works on higher frequency (299 MHz, Boost) instead of 247 MHz (Max) with 8 Mb PagePool size.
So if PagePool size is 4 Mb and less we have low productivity.
I found that 6 Mb is good size. The productivity is the same as with 8 Mb and free memory bigger for 2 Mb.

It did work on mind.

It said Dump size mis-matched.

Try built Development Information.

It also failed and sais Some **** happened!

Don't know what is next. ROM I used is the 55Meg Big Storage ROM without Extended ROM found in this forum.

Size of dump is mismatch

Press any key to continue . . .

But building of debug info worked.
Don't know how to contact you at 4PDA.ru since my russian is very rusty (cannot even read any of these words).
So I post the log here

My ROM is1.11.407.1B.GER (original german HTC Touch)
