    SORRY FOR THE LENGTHY POST! the first day i got the phone i rooted it. ive always been a fan of the auto killer app which manages the memory and requires root. my phone has not shut it self off once in the month ive had this. i believe the cpu combined with the ram getting over loaded from keeping too many apps in the background could be the cause. of course i am by no means an expert (so my explanation for this could be wrong for the shutting off) but i love the phone and want other people who have it be able to enjoy it too. so give autokiller a try and try the optimum setting and see how things run. there is an option in development to set the amount of apps to keep in the background to 4 but i thought it wasnt doing a good enough job.

    There is no need to auto kill apps anymore. The OS will purge ram as a foreground process needs it, ics is pretty good at this. The only reason to kill an app is if it is problematic. Auto killing is just killing apps and then they have to use CPU cycles/power and ram as they restart again by themselves. Especially if you multitask a lot.

    The best option, IMO. Is if your rooted, get 'app quarantine' and freeze any bloatware or apps you don't use. Along with 'es task manger' and the start up manager to turn off apps you don't want to start on boot. I do however do a low level app kill at the end of the day, but keeping most used apps in the ram is what makes the phone snappy and smooth. The best thing to do to save battery is to toggle 3g data off when you don't need it and use WiFi instead when available.

    Hey man, I was just giving my opinion and how I run it, same as you. If you like apps or scripts to manage memory, it's cool. Sorry if it came off as being a turd. Happy new year.

    I'm going to put my 2 cents in real quick, I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything so you know.

    Since the release of Gingerbread, the android OS has a built-in auto killer process. It does the same thing as auto killer apps you download from the play store, albeit to the specifications that Google set. Whereas the apps you download use their own boundaries for when to kill apps. Google kills them as needed, and keeps apps in the background to allow for quick launching of your apps. This is why people recommend you to install apps that manage which apps launch at boot and similar apps, rather than auto killers. Auto killers you download will kill apps however you set them up, but the OS will still be killing apps at the same time. This is why it is common knowledge that installing auto killers on Gingerbread and beyond is redundant. Auto killers were needed on Froyo and versions before that, because the android OS had no app killing process until Gingerbread.

    As far as using scripts like the v6/v8 supercharger, I have no idea. I've never personally used them and have no idea what they do or how they work.
