    Huge memory leak problem

    I'm using a Curve 8320 with OS 4.5.0.81 on T-Mobile.

    Lately I have been having a massive memory leak issue. I go from 11MB to 8MB in just 30 minutes, and then to 6MB within 2 hours. It's ridiculous having to do battery pulls SEVERAL times a day.

    Is there an app that can detect what's doing this? Or something I can do to track apps using memory?

    Anything would be great, thanks for the help!
    -Rich

    Most accurate way to find a memory leak is to install your apps one by one or delete them one by one to find the culprit. I've requested some help from the other BBOS staff members, so sit tight and hopefully we can get you a more concrete answer!

    4.5.0.81 or 4.5.0.181?

    Thanks dbone. Unfortunately deleting all the apps one by one would take a while to sit and watch for memory leaks, although I could only do the ones that are detected by the "Switch Application" menu (which detects running apps) for apps that I haven't launched but run in the backround. I have a strong feeling that it is Google Maps. But it would be too much of a hassle to delete one by one and watch for leaks.

    Wow that's really sad that .81 is the official OS download T-Mobile offers for the 8320. I would recommend that you upgrade your OS to a newer version. AT&T has version 4.5.0.182 that you can load on your device, provided you removed the vendor.xml file.

    There is a pretty good chance it is Google Maps. That app is a memory hog. If you choose to upgrade your operating system, this link should help you out a lot.

    Is there any downside of upgrading? And is there any notable differences? Also, will it fix the memory leak?

    I'm using Shrink-A-OS on the new OS, and I can only get these sizes:

    Before: 49.04
    After: 22.39

    Compared to 19.96 after a OS shrink on my current OS.

    I'm going to upgrade anyways, it will be worth it if it can help my memory leak. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

    I can't upgrade. There is no option to upgrade when I run Loader.exe. Same with Desktop Manager, the new OS doesn't show on the list.

    What do I do? I think it's because it's AT&T and I'm using T-Mobile. And yes, I did delete Vendor.xml

    Search your computer for vendor.xml. Sometimes there's more than one copy of it. I've installed AT&T's OS's on my Tmobile Curve numerous times in the past so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Sunkast is correct. No way Loader.exe would not recognize it if you deleted the .vendor.xml file

    Searched, didn't find anything. When I run the loader.exe there is nowhere for it to upgrade the OS, because it doesn't recognize the newest OS installed...

    Do you have any other OS's installed? Open desktop manager. Go to Help > About. Change tot he last tab that says Device Software. What is listed?

    Delete everything but the one you want to install and try again. When installing an OS, you should always only have the OS on your computer that you want to install.

    Sorry to jump in, I also use Blackberry Curve 8320.
    I Already upgrade it into .188 claro panama update,
    but I inject a Hybrid OS in it, Is it the cause my Handheld become leaking in memory..?
    After installation I got 14MB memory free, but after a while (about 2 days) it becomes only 2 MB..
    The Hybrider said that it's optimum that after 2x24 hours, it should run on it's best perform, but I feel not like it..
    What should I do..? do I need to just use the Original OS..? or is there any way that I can use this Hybrid without uninstall it..?
    Please advice..
    Thanks

    Hello ega972,

    Memory leaks are always due to the OS you are using. Sometimes a memory leak can come from the apps you install. I would recommend performing a battery pull restart everyday to see if that is enough to sustain your memory.

    If you aren't satisfied you may want to do a clean install of a official OS.
