    Minfree refers to the minimum free memory value, e.g. the threshold of free RAM below which idle tasks are killed. You can tweak these values (I beleive there are five or six different ones) to change how the system's build in task killer responds in different situations. Can you gain some free RAM doing this? Sure you can, at the cost of possibly making things more unstable. Personally, I prefer to allow the system to use its default (and most compatible) settings for this to keep things as stable as possible.

    V6 adjusts minfree amongst other things, and it's 3g tweaks break data for us. Using loopysmoothness and other init.d tweaks can result in the same tweaks without the 3g data issues. That's why I've been looking for a way to incorporate minfree tweaks via init.d, and I think I have a good alternative way to do it.

    Ok, so the thing is that your minfree settings are one part, the other part is what we call the oom adj values, out of memory adjustment parameters.

    Tinkering with those can get dicey, especially if changing init scripts without full knowledge of the boot sequence and the implications of memory adjustments.

    I worked extensively with V6 SuperCharger - great tool - especially if you know what it's really doing.

    At this point, on my phone with 680 MB user ram, I have found a simpler solution that serves me very well, please note that the specifics here are for an HTC phone, not yours, but this can give you the mechanics to develop your own strategy -

    Note that you can test first before committing it to override your setup as a post boot process.

    Here is the meaning of what you are adjusting -

    But try the more modern tool that I recommend, ROM Toolkit is another great one (but maybe a little more complicated for the same thing - anyway, you decide on that).

    Don't know if this has already been discussed, apologies if so, otherwise, hope this helps. :)

    Can you post a link to the v6 script you got? I've been looking for one without the 3g supercharger.

    I was looking at a similar option, different app but same effect. Just tinkering with settings now.

    End result will be similar to setting your parameters in V6 without the complexity and without the baggage that you're looking to avoid that destroys your 3G.

    Other thing that V6 does is a SQLITE defragmentation. So few apps use it that the good done is really for a super minority of users.

    You can get that as a stand alone here -

    Some people swear by that, it works differently for each model.

    It does exactly zero on a Droid Razr, it totally borked my phone, and others swear by it.

    So if you're going to guinea pig that, there is a risk and a nandroid backup is your friend - don't even try sql cleaning without a nandroid. :eek:

    Been running it since we got init.d working way back when, works well on warp. You have a way to bullet proof launcher without v6?

    Sorry, only other way is built-in as a developer option on my phone so I haven't had to look. :(

    I'll definitely ask around for you though. :)

    If you find tthe original v6 thread thats posted in my help request form now labeled cant mount as r/o i believe and theres a link to older scripts and youll see the one labeled v6 with 3g (obviously not the full name lol) and just get the one version older cuz itll be just v6 and then get just the kernalizer
