    I'm new to this forum/the admire, but when I used to hack my old Transform something that helped allot was Swap. Can anybody point me to a Kernel that enables our supports Swap. And a NON-OC one because my phone doesn't work well on EXT4/OC

    Unfortunately, we do not have a kernel that supports swap. There only 4 kernels here, the stock, spz0's oc kernel which is only in his rom OA, Req's oc kernel for the CM7 beta and stock++, and pressy5pie's kernel that is simply req's oc kernel with added frequencies to further overclock.
    I remember req making a flashable zip for the stock kernel which again is our only no-oc kernel. let me see if i can find it

    hope this works since i myself have never used it. i simply stay on the kernel thats provided in the rom as most of the time the oc kernel is need to run the rom and without it bootloops. I know from experience trying to run the stock rfs kernel on ext4 oc kernels roms.

    Thank you, and no need to bother yourself. Im already on the O.A ROM and was wondering if I could get swap support. But do you know anyway that I could get more memory on my device? I'm using the Apps2sd app, but after getting all the apps I want, I'm still down to like 16 mb

    well you could always delete any apps you dont plan on using on OA, when i was on it i erased a few such as the google sky maps app. cool app but never really used it. So you already partitioned your sd card through cwm to allow more apps onto your phone? casue thats really the only way how for us. There was a guy here who have 90+ apps on this Admire but I dont know howe many gigabytes his sd card was. The only way would be to get a bigger sd card and partition it through cwm. off the top of my head thats all i believe is available, could be wrong. on a simple 2gb sd card, a 512mb(.5gb) partition should be enough though. if it tells you to create a partition for swap put 0 as that would just end up wasting space seeing how we dont have swap support

    No I didnt partition my sdcard. I'm just using Apps2sd from the market that doesn't require a partition. And I'm also using a 2,gig card but I plan on chaging that soon.

    oh alright. man i feel like im forgetting something important to tell. but i cant seem to remember... been awhile since ive answered anything about on this topic. it doesnt help that the Admire has such minimal internal storage space. I saw my mothers's Transform Ultra and saw how much more it had and i was sitting there in awe considering she doesnt even know how to clear the notifications from apps all in one go.

    I have(had) Link2SD on my Admire and had dozens of apps. I have an 8Gb SD card and only 2Gb was used.

    I don't think you should've told me that, because it's all I'll be thinking about now lol. Its not like I need sleep or anything

    I'm supposed to be sleeping too. My schedule is all ****** up.

    If it's that important to you, what ROM (Stock, Stock++, CM, etc) do you want to use swap with? I can compile a kernel real quick, just need to know which ROM you are using so I can pack in the right ramdisk.

    That'll be highly appreciated if you could do that. Right now I'm on O.A 2.3 RFS (My phone doesn't work well with Ext4 & OC. I'm not sure the exact name of the kernel it uses though.

    For some reason everytime I turn the phone on, it either reboots or freezes. Can you make me a zip with the original kernel, so my phone can be functional while i wait for the second version?

    Just reflash oa without wiping.

    If you have an OA backup, go to advanced restore, and select restore boot.

    Weird that it's not working, but that means Spz0 changed more in his OA kernel than I thought.

    Sorry broseph. When I get some test results back from the new CM7 I'll integrate the Swap kernel changes and push out a new zip.
