    Everyone knows SBSettings has the "Free memory" thing it does..

    Any way to run this say, "Every 5 minutes" on its own?

    And any reason not to?

    You dont need to free the memory every 5 minutes.
    The OS handles that part on its own fine.
    If you want to do it once in a while try the removeBG toggle.

    I see.

    What I'm trying to get at though is just not lagging up as soon as I unlock my phone due to a lot of .. Anything.

    I'm really dumb.. I think.

    The removeBG toggle and this are not the same. Idk what it is but i frequently have to Remove BG and free memory to get back up to 340~.

    I know this ^^
    I just dont like leaving my phone to sleep with all the stuff sitting in RAM. yeah its a useless pet peeve I have :D

    Sometimes when my ram gets low using apples "multitasking" i have noticed basic phone function slow down a lil bit.

    Everything in moderation right? But your right, free RAM is technically wasted RAM.

    You would be better served just hitting the 'Remove Background' toggle every so often.

    Sigh. This is a two-year old thread bumped by a link spammer.

    Actually I recommend, just as APJ says, it's very easy to enter a evil circle..

    I have a diagnosed OCD and it's so bad that I need to free memory every 5 minutes. It's like there is some voice telling me to do it.
    DO IT .. DO IT ... DO IT.... DO IT NOW.. DO IT.. Ye it keeps telling me.


    I mean, it's not bad it's REALLY bad. Like the word bad isn't enough.
    Miraculusley Bad.


    Jesus christ stay away from this.

    Didn't even realize that. To be fair, with the new JB out I'm sure this is still relevant.
