    What exactly are you trying to accomplish with Swapper that you cannot by formatting the SD card in CWM?

    No, it doesn't. It lets you edit swap space on your SD card. Unless you're on a kernal that allows for swap space on an external drive and you constantly run out of memory space on your phone (which really shouldn't happen even with the minimal memory space on the Admire), Swapper/Swapper2 are going to do nothing for your phone's speed. All it will do is shorten the life of your SD card.

    Right. At which point it's not even worth having the Swapper2 app on your phone as it wont be doing anything. Swap is already at 0mb.
