    Hi All,

    Can someone help me understand the memory info that is shown in the running services menu ? ?

    It says Available : X + Y in (#) Other Z in (#)

    So I wanna know what these X , Y and Z mean . .. ..

    Also when i close a service the freed memory gets added into the Y . .so it becomes

    Avail: X + (Y+freed memory) in (#) Other: Z in (#)

    I saw a post which explains a bit. .but its not clear enough .. .



  2. I believe the X is how much is completely free, Y is how much can be freed by clearing inactive activities (e.g., if you had an app opened and pressed home while it wasn't doing anything). Not sure on Z, might be the higher-priority stuff.
