    Question Maximizing application memory & minimizing OS lags

    hi.
    i guess this is what we all look for... in all hybrids... in all OS versions...
    - stable performance (no lags)
    - super fast performance & optimized memory usage

    This seems to be the present scenario:
    - we all use few or many applications which take up some amount of application memory
    - applications running in the background or for a longer period seems to deplete application memory & battery faster
    - there's this huge event log.... which keeps track of all events

    Now... in order to match what we want with what we have... we need to come up with solutions...
    some of the "so called" solutions are:
    - logmaid
    - memory up
    - meterberry
    and so on....

    we need a single app that can do the following:
    - close idle apps (this will help to free a lot of memory) and help minimize apps running in the background
    - clears event logs after regular intervals
    - defragments & releases application memory
    - optimizes process queue/cache for optimal performance of OS and apps

    is there any such app available for blackberry storm??
    or is there any other alternative solution to this??

    I've used meterberry and even bought memoryup pro. Neither of them are worth having on your phone, they just end up using more battery and memory. My phone has been on for 3 days straight without a QuickPull and my memory is sitting at 46.2 and that is with BerryWeather and AIM constantly open. I found that there really is no need to use apps that clean or try to clean at least your phone. Also for your event log you can either disable it or completely remove it from your phone using Shrink-a-OS...

    I was reading some where about disableing the event log.. you can only actually 'hide' events. That means its still logging them just not showing it. You have to remove it from what i understand

    ahh ok, I found it on a old post I didn't know it only hid the events, in that case yeah removing the event logger using shrink-a-os is not a bad idea

    Is there a way to remove it without having to re-install the OS?

    Yes there is. Use ShrinkOS to remove the log viewer, then run DM. Run Application Loader and choose Update Software. It will remove the log event viewer files and keep the OS and your data intact. However, I would make sure to back up my data prior to doing this anyway.

    DM doesn't find the OS I have installed on my computer. At first it brought up 4 different ones. .65, .75, and two different versions of .148. I disconnected
    my internet connection and it couldn't find any. Why don't it see the version
    I have installed and shrunk?

    Dm will not always find it I would suggest using either crack util or crack mem to remove a single file...you would need to find all .cod involved with that program though...maybe pm lyricidal.. the best and safest way is to reinstall the hybrid with out it....

    If you removed that already go to c: program files/common files/research in motion/applications loader/ and run the loader.exe (small phone icon), it will do the same as updating with DM

    Exclamation

    to all those who are eager to have the "event log viewer" removed... via Shrink-A-OS or any other way...
    please note that it will simply remove the viewer through which we could see the logs .... and not disable event logging...
    disabling the ability to view event logs do not necessarily mean disabling event logging...
    my understanding so far is... event log cannot be disabled... it is part of the radio functionality...

    my request to all would therefore be... to look for alternatives... such as: how to clear event logs more frequently than using "logmaid" or "meterberry"... also... the same app should have the capability to defragment & optimize process queueing... and thus make the overall system faster and more stable...
    can anyone recall any such app...?? if not... i guess this is an opportunity for the developers to explore...

    You are correct, this process only removes the event log viewer and does not disable event logging. If you want to show this, remove the viewer and then using CrackUtil, view the event log. It will be quite full. Also, if you delete the viewer, you will not be able to clear the event log from your device.

    From home screen, turn your phone to landscape....click bb key, show keyboard...on keyboard, type "/"/" and it will come up

    If you shrunk the OS, then it will not come up

    Thanks, but my phone did not react well. It went a little haywire. I had to do a battery pull. I hate to reinstall meterberry, but it did allow me to clear the event log daily.

    Your phone went haywire after you cleared the event log?

    No, it went haywire before. I was in the event log and different events started popping up without pressing anything. Then I tried to exit and some of the apps started doing the same thing. I pulled the battery and waited a minute and rebooted. Everything is fine now.

    The event log is a place where apps use to communicate with another. It's sort of a dump for everything your phone is doing. Over time this fills up taking away from your available memory. Nonetheless glad to see things are working normally again.
