It's obviuos that no OS could give preference to cache an old application over the continuos working of basic OS apps, like bluetooh service, keyboard application, default Samsung Launcher (I mean TouchWiz), etc...
Not productive to discuss or fight among users instead of helping and solving problems. I highly appreciate your effort and ideas, sad they didn't drive me to sucess.
Bash version present in S3 is very reduced. Very few commands work, and with very few options. I don't get to where is the memory black hole.
Any other ideas?
I have the same problem and even I have updated all the versions through Kies or OTA. Someone suggested in a thread on another forum that disabling the Swipe pattern ripple effect unlock would help. I tried this and it did work to some extent. However, the RAM that increased to 90-95% in 3-4 hours earlier now increases in 10-12 hours. That was the only difference that it made.
I am no RAM expert so can't really comment on the usage pattern and stuff, but is it possible that TouchWiz is actually eating up the RAM. Because I happened to see the Battery Usage service on the phone and it showed TouchWiz eating up most battery after the Screen and Chrome.
Maybe custom launchers will help? Any ideas?
