    Well, the V6 Supercharger Script is an excellent tool created by zeppelinrox to fix memory management of the Cyanogen 7.x.x by Mur4ik which is based on Android 2.3, just because the Gingerbread is very aggressive in memory management.

    Original V6 Thread by zeppelinrox


    ATTENTION (For more detailed changes, visit Original Thread):

    July 21, 2011 (Sorry for the delay on updating this thread, I'm go off the vacation today)

    Update 8 Launched, Improved code and Tweaked Current Status functionality. It will tell you if your current and prior minfrees match but if you apply a setting, it won't update the "prior minfrees" with the values you just installed. It will update the prior minfrees the next time you run the script.

    July 18, 2011 (Important for who Installed the Update 6 Version!)

    Update 7 Launched, sorry for the delay on updating this post: Tweaked Status Checker and fixed the possible issue on update 6 that sometimes gave wrong launcher status.

    July 16, 2011

    Update 6 Launched, Added Second MegaRAM device setting, Added installation to system option - for easy use with Terminal Emulator, Added UnSuperCharger verification, and much more (see original post for detailed changes!).

    June 29, 2011 (Important for who Installed the Update 4 Version!)

    Update 5 Launched, removed the 2 minutes delay on boot (like bootloop). Now the Settings STICK any out the delay.

    June 26, 2011

    Update 4 Launched

    June 25, 2011

    Updated to Version 3b. NOW THE SETTINGS ARE STICK AND RUN AUTOMATICALLY AFTER BOOT; Added Error Check and Tweaked OOM grouping/priorities and much more!

    June 20, 2011

    Updated to Version 2. Now you can select the scrolling speed and more fixes.

    June 19, 2011

    The V6 Script has been updated! Works even better than before. I recommend to run the Script again with Balanced 3 option. Is fixed long press back button kill.


    NOW PAY ATTENTION TO DO THE TUTORIAL CORRECTLY!

    Why I recommend that we users of the GT540, the use of this script?
    Because we have only 156MB of RAM, and Android 2.3 is very aggressive on memory management, closing any application that is in the background, such as music player, streaming music, to let free RAM. But in practice this does not happen very well.

    With this script running on the GT540, you will be able to browse the Internet using any browser with multiple tabs opened and listening to music (I use the PowerAMP) or play Angry Birds listening to your favorite music, without closing the applications and Widgets in the background.

    This is also good for those with Widgets that need to be running in the background to be refreshed, such as Gmail Notifier, Digital Clock Widget and Extended Controls.

    And another important thing, is that the Home Launcher is not closed (NO MORE LAUNCHER REDRAWS), even after you've played Angry Birds listening to PowerAMP, if you need, you're back to Home Launcher without waiting to it being restarted or to load the items and Widgets again!! (IMPORTANT NOTE: UNCHECK THE "LOCK HOME IN MEMORY" on Settings> CyanogenMod settings> Performance)

    You don't need to kill your process and apps anymore. Its NOT recommended to use Task Killers!

    Here are some Screens. Note that applications are running since they were started without having closed, since Android 2.3 (Cyanogen 7) was restarted.




    INSTRUCTIONS


    You must be root of course!
    Using CyanogenMod 7.x.x!
    Root Explorer Installed (Come's with CyanogenMod!)
    P.S. When Installing Programs, MAKE SURE Script Manager are installed on PHONE and NOT in the MicroSD Card!


    Step 1: Download and Install Busybox Installer

    Run the Installer Busybox
    Select the version 1.18.2, the Version 1.18.3 or newer are VERY much a hassle with errors that should NOT be errors! (From Original Zeppelin Thread)



    Step 2: Download and Install Script Manager



    After installing, run the app, press the MENU button and go to MORE and then in ADVANCED OPTIONS and now in CONFIG and leave the options marked exactly as shown in the screen below:



    Step 3: Download the Script V6 SuperCharger Update 7 HERE (From Original zeppelinrox V6 SuperCharger thread)

    Put it in the root of MicroSD card.



    Step 4: Run the Script Manager



    Open the "V6-SuperCharger_for_Android-update3b.sh.txt" and check the option "Run as root" ONLY


    Now, run the script!



    Firstly, choose the Scrolling text Speed, from 1 to 3
    Touch the screen and tap the number 6, Balanced 3, the best choice for GT540, and hit ENTER .... The script will work .... after finished, touch the screen again and tap the number 16, to exit, and press the HOME button.



    NO NEED TO DO STEP 5 AND STEP 6 ANYMORE.
    ZEPPELIN FIXED, AND NOW THE SCRIPT RUN AUTOMATICALLY AFTER THE BOOT!!

    Step 7: REBOOT YOUR PHONE!

    Step 8: Now let's take the test, if it worked or not:

    Run the Script Manager again;
    Run the script "V6-SuperCharger_for_Android-update3b.sh.txt". Do not forget, "Run as ROOT"
    And see if it is exactly as picture below, if written "Launcher is .... HARD TO KILL!" and just above "NOTE: Current Minfrees = 6, 8, 26, 28, 30, 32 mb" its WORKING!



    Now, just enjoy the new GT540! LOL!

    Thanks to zeppelin, for creating this wonderful and excellent script!

    Any questions post here I we will try to resolve it in the best way possible.

    Download the attachments from original site!! :):) (its at the bottom)

    after reading the oringal thread it sounds like it keeps more things in memory rather than freeing it up. that bein the case idk if its 4 me since i'm tryin to run as lean as possible so i can have more ram for single resource intensive programs at a time. I have little need for multitasking.

    Busybox Installer wont work, nothing happens when i press the install button half the time, the outher half its covered by an internet add

    edit: workaround for that is tern off internet start app then tern it back on

    edit2: ok I tryed the scrips with option 9, I think I would have been happyer with option 8 I'll probley redo it. phone seems to be starting up faster not sure if any ram is actually freed up edit3: I dont like how option 8 and 9 it forced hard to kill launcher on me, I do not want that. i'll probley uninstall it don't need the laucher stuck in memory waisting space, i'll try some differint options first

    edit number dont remember: I think I'll use with megaram 2, option 9 although some things bother me.

    I still want more ways of squeezing more free space in memory out of this phone if possible.
