    Well I have had some friends tell me about this scrip but I don't fully understand it, what I do understand is that it makes your phone "faster" but I also understand there's like 14 or 19 profiles so witch does witch and with one will help the triumph the most?

    Trial and error, find which one suites you most. I believe I used balanced 2

    Yeah it helped for sure, I used it with CM7. Not with MIUI though, as it was always smooth enough for me

    You don't really need this with tickerguys cm7 as he already made tweaks in the rom that do most of what this script does already.

    The only real change that matters is the minfree tuning and not only have I done it for you I've exposed it so you can play with it if you'd like manually.

    It's contained in the CM7 thread, first page instructions:

    Memory Tuning
    This series of ROMs in B.05 and later have a reasonably easy to change memory allocation feature allowing you, the user, to select how low memory can get before the kernel starts killing things off. The file is in /system/etc/init.d/99memory. You will need to mount the /system directory read/write to be able to change this file. If you know how to use "vi" you can edit the file directly on the phone, edit it using something like ES File Explorer in "root" mode, or use "adb pull" and "adb push" to obtain and then re-write it (after re-mounting the /system area for writes.)

    Do not alter the top of this shell script! The top portion causes the file to be loop-executed exactly once; when the phone boots this file runs quite early in the boot sequence, and the base command to set memory allocations in the init runs after this file does. To prevent this from being un-done immediately the code intentionally backgrounds a copy of itself, waits 2 minutes, and then executes the memory settings.

    The second-to-last line sets the parameters. The defaults are reasonable but may allow the system to get lower on memory than you'd like. It is strongly recommended that you not tamper with the first three values. The last three are in pages (4,096 bytes each) and set the parameters for most ordinary applications, backgrounded things and un-attached data providers. A reasonable "more aggressive" setting from the default is 10000,25000,32000 for these three numbers. If you get too aggressive (too large) the phone will shut down virtually anything you background, obviating most multi-tasking. If you get too "open" then the phone will get slow as it runs low on RAM. The defaults are reasonable but you should consider tuning this to suit your particular mix of things you do. The values should always be in ascending order as well. This table is likely to change fairly regularly with new releases of the code, so if you have a particular personal preference do check it on each new load if you've changed it from the defaults (or like the present defaults!) Reboot to activate your changes.
