    Biggest issue I had with multitasking is a couple of time when several things were open and I pressed multitasking button to see what was there once I slide up to apps the other apps that were there the icon either didn't show up or it was something else like maps had no icon gmail had phone icon pressed multitasking button again and once more to jump back in and it was fine

    Well I just don't like when my sense reloads just cause it did it all the time on my 3D but on this phone since I've had it only a few times recently. So I thought maybe not backing out and going right to home had something to do with it I don't really know. But I'm still having trouble with text not sending sometimes and I am trying to send a picture now and it won't send. At work on my 3D there were always 2 spots i could go to to make my text send and I got text to come through on this phone they won't send and last night all at once after I had just gotten home all my text came through at once. My friend said maybe it's my phone I should trade it in for a new one. I hate to do that since I have everything on it already. But I don't know if an update will fix it or once we get LTE it will be better I don't know what to do.

    Texts ought not be affected by any multitasking. To narrow in on that, please if you can, hold down your power button for a good ten seconds - eventually, the capacitive buttons will flash and then your phone will reboot - that's the same thing as a battery pull on this phone. Then, go a day using only the phone and sms, nothing else, see if you can find any change in how texts are working out for you. Let us know what you find.

    Meanwhile - news from the root multitasking trenches after hours under the hood on my phone monitoring everything -

    As it turns out, it seems one dev is making a mistake on how his settings are for multitasking (his mods are not actually taking hold), and other devs have seem to have some settings that are in conflict with one another on this.

    I've contacted those involved, so with a little luck, we may have some solutions to those issues pretty quickly.

    I'm testing what I hope could be the final, simple cookbook now.

    So here's my relative finds so far.

    I've set the android auto memory thresholds to the following, and it's improved multitasking a bit.

    Foreground Application : 10MB
    Visible Application: 12MB
    Secondary Server : 20 MB
    Content Provider : 40MB
    Empty Application: 64MB

    I've also lowered the VM Heap to 96MB from 128MB. (Considered the default VM Heap on my Shift was only 32MB, 96MB is still HUGE.)

    There are a variety of ways you can tweak these settings, and if this stays consistent for the next week or so I'll write a batch zip that can apply these settings permanently. If that works, I'll post it on AF.

    Comparison when we're both at final will prove interesting. :)

    By the way - when we talk about multitasking, we're talking about what's apparent to the user.

    Android multitasks, and it's often surprising for those unaware of how much is going on under the hood.

    At the moment, I'm running a set of tests that involve streaming video with audio on headset, Talk session mirrored from my desktop to see if Talk notifications come in (yep, they do :)), two system monitors running, a browser, and another streaming vid from another app all queued up and ready to go. Those are my apps, in addition to the messaging, time, weather and phone services running, as well as the launcher, of course.

    Here's the list of processes that that really shakes out to -

    So, I took the Evo 3D settings and tweaked the last two, kept the others, not terrible.

    I'm able to leave and re-enter video streams without losing my place and also keep 7 web pages open without my browser losing its mind.

    Did you try restarting the phone? I did that and it fixed my reloading issues. I know to do that now when sense starts to act all wonky.

    Also from another thread on AF:

    It's very frustrating expescially when I'm trying to show off my new phone and getting the loading screen. What gives? I have done a factory reset, cleared the google wallet, just in case. But it happens just about everytime I browse a few pages on dolphin, looking through pulse etc.

    I have rebooted my phone but I just checked my developer settings and they were what they were suppose to be. I also didn't know about holding the power button down for 10 seconds and seeing the buttons flash was like a battery pull so I did that. I am still getting an occasional sense reload not sure if I got any today maybe once I forget but all my text have been sending today so that's good.

    I still love this phone. I was at a concert last night inside of Belterra casino and I had no signal at all couldn't upload a pic or anything but once it was over and I got to the slot machines it was working fine good 3G. But if I have no 3G signal shouldn't I roam and be able to do stuff? That confuses me I know we roam on Verizon so maybe Verizon people didn't have a signal too I don't know. At my work AT&T people have signals where mine don't. But I love Sprint and there unlimited data so I'll with Sprint. This phone is great!

    I think you're in a poor signal area and that's all there is.

    I hope I'm not going over ground already covered or using the wrong thread, but exactly what happens when you "toss" a card from the multitasking "deck"? It doesn't seem to kill the task like task manager.
  14. EarlyMon

    EarlyMon The PearlyMon Moderator

    In some ways, it works better. It will completely remove a fresh app from memory, and it will remove the stub of one sleeping. The HTC Task Manager doesn't accurately display running apps, and the multitasking deck only shows apps you've opened.

    Hm. Well for example, there is a glitch I get with the facebook app. When I take a photo and upload it to facebook using the facebook app (not facebook for sense), it sometimes will show two progress bars in notifications, of which only one will move. It will complete and erase, but the second progress bar will remain indefinitely in notifications. The only way I have found to remove that dead notification is to kill the facebook app with task manager. Flicking it out of the multitasking deck doesn't do it.

    Yeah I know that especially in my house and at work. I use wifi always when I can though. But out of town at this casino with no free wifi it really sucked in one spot. But another concert here in town last week it worked better than my 3D and was uploading pics to FB and doing good so it varied I guess. But I am not giving up this phone or Sprint's unlimited data just for a not so good signal in a few spots. LOL! I love this phone. We never got 4G here but it worked in one or two spots by my house it was weird. I really hope LTE gets here at least by next year like they say. Now I know this has been asked but if you don't have LTE your phone should be on CDMA only right? Someone said 3G is better with that on but I think I had it on and then put it back. I do have my NFC still on though was messing with Android Beam and knew I was gonna try the tags here soon so I left it on and haven't noticed a difference in battery drain with it on.

    EarlyMon The PearlyMon Moderator

    Rose - the CDMA with LTE on/off has some discussion about which speed is better, but those results are anecdotal - and connectivity ought not be affected, but if you find a setting that works better, go for it because we don't know exactly what's going on the hood for radio management. Use what works for you.

    I think that's part of a known Facebook bug that is addressed in the viperROM for rooted users - sorry, I don't use FB, just passing on my understanding from reading others comments.

    I have now seen a couple other glitches that left notifications and required task termination, which tossing from the multitask deck did not solve while killing in task manager did. In particular, I ran into the issue with a Jetcet print task earlier, which glitched out with my printer and was unable to print.

    Speaking of which, now I'm on the lookout for a fix there. I like the Jetcet integration.

    Rose4uKy Well-Known Member

    Yeah I've noticed that too when uploading a pic to FB I see it up top and it says on going and I usually just reboot my phone and it's gone. I also see the one that moves and says 100% and the one stays at the top and it says ongoing.

    You should be able to get rid of it by killing facebook with the task manager.

    Thanks, I saw you wrote that. I was restarting phone where it closed all apps and rebooted. But I guess that's quicker and easier.

    Cool. Does anyone have any links to provide so I get learn how you guys are able to mess with these settings? I'm very intrigued.

    Wouldn't lowering the heap in the VM cause garbage collection to occur more frequently?
  23. IOWA

    IOWA Mr. Logic Pants Moderator

    The VM heap is what each 'sandbox' is allowed to take up as a maximum.

    So by lowering the heap, (in theory anyway) Android will move RAM around inside that application to accommodate that VM heap instead of killing other applications.

    This allows more RAM to be left over for other applications by limiting how much RAM an application can have. This is very useful for memory hungry apps like the browsers or games.

    The default VM Heap of 128Meg is the largest I've ever seen, and I'm still playing with VM heap sizes to determine the best fit.

    Given the VM Heap used on my three phones with 512mb RAM(Epic, OG Evo, and Shift) was between 32 and 48 mb, a VM Heap size of 96mb is still huge by comparison.

    With this being said, I have noticed improved multitasking performance with these settings(actually tweaked them a bit more).

    Between EarlyMon and I we should be able to find the 'sweet spot' as he's doing his own experiments using his own values. FWIW our current values are very similar, and we're both getting better results than before.

    Lowering the VM heapsize can increase the number of smaller apps running at once and provide faster response switching between them, but can lead to crashes on memory intensive apps. For those, a larger heapsize is needed to prevent crashing.

    Again, it's part of the necessary balancing act.

    If you are rooted, make frequent nandroid backups, and don't care about driving your rom to crashing and you're using the stock rom, then you can try Rom Toolbox. If you don't know what you're doing and don't make nandroid backups then you ought not even consider experimenting.

    I just wanted to let people know that i have not had this issue much at all after removing the stock widgets from all the home screens.

    Also, the stock browser doesn't always reload open tabs, now. It still does occasionaly, though.

    I only have friendstream, gmail, and google search widgets on 3 different screens. One other good thing since doing this is the gmail widget actually updates now. It used to show the same emails from when I first loaded it and would only update when Sense had to redraw, which was getting quite annoying.

    I ticked the 2D option and will let you know of anything different that I notice.
