| | Memory issues with Pearl 8130, and App Loader trouble
Please Login to Remove!
I know a lot of these threads get made, but reading through other ones is very confusing because almost no one makes the distinction between RAM and storage memory. I have a MicroSD card in my Pearl, so I figured that all this deleting themes and unwanted applications stuff would not help me as much because I already keep all my media on the card. However, because everyone everywhere just refers to 'memory' and not RAM or storage memory shortages, it is really hard to figure out what I can do to maximize RAM besides closing applications when I am done with them.
After I do a batter pull, I seem to have 12-13MB of 'File Free'. This is the RAM, correct? And is this normal? During normal usage, I seem to average 9-8MB of File Free, but recently it has been dropping ridiculously low; I am now averaging 5-3MB, and I even had .3MB at one point! It took a full 30 seconds for the Key Lock to turn on! What is causing this? The only 3rd party app I regularly use is Viigo, and I have Opera Mini and the Facebook app but have yet to do anything with them.
Also, I have the Memory Cleaner set to run after like 5 minutes idle, and I run it manually on occasion, but it seems to do pretty much nothing. Also, the Device Memory Limit is set to 5MB, and the Reserved Picture Memory is 0MB. Or maybe the Memory Cleaner would work better if it stayed enabled, and did not disable itself, seemingly after resets...
Also, I am having trouble with the Application Loader. When I open it, it only shows me the 3rd party apps that I have; Facebook, Opera, and Viigo. So, despite reading the sticky on how to maximize memory, I cant actually do much that involves the App loader because it will not show anything but these.
Anyone have any idea on what I can do? Any particular threads I should look at?
Will anything bad happen if I delete Japanese and Korean Characters and Font support?
