    Why do you have a task killer? They shouldn't help much at all.

    Anyways, here's mine.

    I just like to free as much RAM as I can.

    More RAM used = more power consumed n what not.

    Not true. With Android it uses more power to cold launch a program than it does to restore it from memory. Android is actually a bit decent at its memory management.

    As Sicklyboy has stated, coldbooting an application uses more power, since the CPU has to work harder to launch it. You should be more concerned about CPU usage rather than RAM consumption.

    Well the only applications I use frequently I dun kill.
    But things like solitaire and such, which I usually only play when I'm in bed dun have to be stored in memory a whole day.

    Yeah but you shouldn't have to do it manually. Just leave it to the OS.

    If you press back instead of home, most games and such will actually close instead of staying in memory. Pressing home makes it think you are going to come back to it, so it keeps your place in the app and stays in memory.

    That's what I always do, pressing back that is.

    Like I said, most games do that, some don't and yeah they might stay in memory. Just saying. :)
    In that case yeah a task killer is alright. The launcher I use lets me go to the app settings when I hold on an icon, so I can force stop things right from there for the rogue apps.

    Simpsons stays in memory, since I use it pretty much every hour ;p
    But things like solitaire I only play when I can't sleep, seeing that takes up unneeded RAM, I'd rather free it

    Unused RAM is useless RAM. Android will automatically suspend software when it needs more RAM for another application.

    Exactly. It's like having a big warehouse and only ever using one small corner because you don't want to run out of space, which won't happen anyway.

    That said, I was somewhat intrigued by the sideways battery icon but knowing what DinohScene is like I didn't dare scroll beyond the status bar.

    Anyone of you guys have an Acer e2 (V370)? It's the one i'm using now I would like to put CM on it but if it bricks I don't have a phone anymore so :/

    -Custom beige theme (made it myself.)
    -White battery bar
    -etc.

    Damien Rice playing. Damien Rice notification menu theme. Beige theme matches the Damien Rice theme.


    Overall my phone's just a giant tribute to Damien Rice.

    On another note... why can't I resize these...? Can moderators do that for you? I'm lazy.
