    On Hero, do the apps reside in RAM? If so, how do they survive reboot?

    Appreciate your help...

    thanx

    It's NV(Non Volatile)RAM which retains the data when power is switched off, rather than the normal S/DRAM which 'forgets' it as soon as it loses power. It's basically the same stuff used in flash memory cards such as the SDHCs used for expansion in the Hero.

    A follow up question, if I may...

    What is the I/O speed difference between the onboard RAM and the fastest SD (Class 6 ??)

    TIA
