    So the lower the size, the greater the performance and risk?

    it's like an compression (as far as i know). If it's too low it will not work properly.

    Keep VM at 96 expecially with the new ROMs. You will notice a significant increase in speed over the 48

    Changing the heap size ALL depends on how many apps you run that use background services along with how much RAM it uses while running in foreground AND background... mine was set at and it 24 and it was RIDICULOUSLY quick. IDK why i set it so low considering i dont use background tasking app barely and I dont really have a need for the extra RAM but it helped me a LOT lowering it down that low in terms of opening and closing applications.
  18. you must be living in a cave...the eco has new phones sir...anda yes im bragging My phone is killer you need to check out My utube vid and learn some tweaks..lol
  19. 2mhz slow lol...you must don't know to much most phones only have 1mhz processor and 2 is 2000mhz OMG...LOL

    What he meant was that 2MHz is slow since we are running at 2GHz., it was meant to be a joke though i believe

    Download ROM Toolbox (Free Edition Will Do). Open app, scroll over to performance, select Kernel Tweaks. Depending on what apps you have running and hire much RAM they use will determine what you can set yours to. good ons to set it st are either 42 our the stock 96
