  1. help me…bro…I’m recently root my phones becoz of low ram…after rooting I’m install rheosoft ram expander but it can work…properly…how can i solve this prblm

  2. hey i have rooted my xioami redmi 2 with help of king root bt now i want to install xposed firmware bt i am scared that if my phone get bricked,??
    My friends suggested me not to install expose firmware that it has more chances of bricking my phone??
    Suggest me what to do

  3. Hello, so if I will do it my phone will be able to run apps that requires bigger ram? I mean in part of installation etc.. it will increase also the mirror of Ram totally?

  4. I think it’s very irresponsible not to warn users that creating swap space on an SD card will significantly reduce the potential lifespan of any SD card.

    All SD cards have a limited number of read/write cycles, and RAM access chews these up much more quickly than just reading and writing the occasional file (as most users do).

  5. I followed the instructions and I think it was all successfully. …since I rooted my android I used the root version. …now how do I know it worked or not? Can I the change I made? Im noticing some speed but im wounderind if its just a Plusibo effect

  6. Thanks for this useful info. I have Samsung Galaxy Quattro gti-8552. It does not have swap-compatible / swap-enabled kernel. So, I cannot use apps to expand RAM. Is there any other way to expand RAM? I mean, can I get swap-enabled/swap-compatible kernel for my phone, which can be used without damaging the phone?
