A swap file is a special file that can be used as memory replacement. It allows inactive apps still running to consume less "real" memory.Pierre[quote author=D-Tronic link=topic=41.msg293#msg293 date=1273841588][quote author=KingDani link=topic=41.msg292#msg292 date=1273841283]at the expense of being tagged as a complete noob , what is Swap exactly?[/quote]I'll share the title, because I don't know what Swap is either. lol[/quote]

"swap" is a way of implementing virtual memory, using disk space as extra main memory. If you are familiar with Windows, swap is like pagefile.sys. Unlike Windows, which just uses a file on disk, Linux/Unix/OSX/Android use a special partition of disk -- a whole drive letter of its own, sorta.

that way you would have an OS similar to iphone , with no true multi tasking.also , Anrdoi 2+ always asks for a lot of RAM, like in N1 , they gave it half a gigabyte , so that all programs be able to use whatever RAM they want. that's another erason that i don't think we'll ever see 2.1 on this baby
