    I am currently running helix launcher on my eris. In spare parts, there is a setting to switch to memory management to 'aggressive' to kill apps faster. I have read that because this is a function from the droid, it is not good to use on the eris because it will continually kill off sense, which will then reboot itself. HOWEVER, since I am using HelixLauncher instead of sense, is it ok to set this to aggressive?

    I know that sense will come back after some time if it is killed with a task manager, but what if I force stop it right after a reboot, would this keep sense off and allow me to have aggressive/faster memory management?

    Also, I currently do not use a task manager.

    how do you force close sense at reboot? I too use Helixlauncher and don't use sense, and if there is potential to free up memory i want to try!

    Settings, applications, manage applications. Wait for the list to load, go to htc sense, select or and scroll down to force close. It kept out off for a few hours for me.

    Edit: It has nothing to do with the reboot really, I just did it right after to see how long it would last. Since it started coming back more often. I wish I had root!
