Today I’m going to explain how to increase your RAM with a rooted device. The trick involves creating a partition on your SD card, which will act as a secondary source of RAM. To do this, we will be using the ROEHSOFT RAM Expander (SWAP) app.
Download Roehsoft RAM Expander from HERE
Before you proceed please check if Roehsoft RAM Expander is compatible with your device :
Before using ROEHSOFT RAM Expander, you will need to check that your device is compatible. Download MemoryInfo & Swapfile Check. Start the app and give it SuperUser rights. Click ‘start ramexpander test here’ at the bottom of the screen. Select the SD-card or Ext SD-card. Then press ‘Click for result’. If ‘Congratulations’ appears, your device is compatible with the RAM expander app!
INSTALL THE SWAP :
If you have a compatible handset, download and start the ROEHSOFT RAM-EXPANDER (SWAP) app and start the application. Give it root permissions and select your language (you can choose English, German or French).
Use the slider to select the amount of space you want to allocate to your SWAP partition. Tap ‘optimal value’ to automatically adjust the settings for the best performance, and ‘autorun’ should also be enabled. The last thing you need to do is tap ‘Swap Activ’ to complete the process.
Tap optimal value, and make sure autorun is enabled, before tapping Swap Activ
Your system should now have more RAM, and thus better performance, thanks to the support of your SD-card. (Note that this process will mean that the SD card is no longer accessible from a computer.)
