    I'm curious if anyone else has been checking their currently running processes after updating to .596, rooted or not. I know ever since I installed the rooted update, at least, Tasker has, at least once a day if not more, told me I'm running low on memory. I've got basically the same apps installed as before, but apparently they're using more memory? And Maps is constantly running; I tried stopping the process, and it won't. Google Services is taking up a chunk; so is Settings (at a freaking whopping 17 MB as I type). Social Sharing? What the hell is that, even?

    In any case, has anyone else noticed .596 consuming more memory as it runs?

    Moved this to support where it belongs.

    Memory not used is memory wasted. I've never used tasker, but maybe it thinks you need more reserve memory than GB leaves (by design). Unless you're having issues, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Regarding other stuff running, unless you're experiencing shortened battery life, I'd leave as-is.

    OTOH, if your battery life sucks, you might want to decide if a factory reset is worth the trouble. A few other users fixed battery life problems by that method. Of course you'll have set up your apps again, but they will download from Market on their own, assuming you have "Backup my data" checked in settings... privacy settings.
