It is a script that can help with lag & redraw due to memory issues...

Installed this but am not exactly sure what it does... Besides holds my launcher in place so it doesn't get dropped for memory... Anyone gave a "nutshell" explanation?

It helps manage RAM on the phone. Since android keeps many programs in memory, even when not being used, RAM gets tied up on the services. This frees up the RAM and keeps it available

We could add one to the thread, but we probably don't have enough folk on ssx to get meaningful results, but that's what discussions are for LOL. I was running #3, aggressive 2 for a day or so, but it seemed to hang when opening menus or windows, so I switched to #6 Balanced 3 and it seems better. Nothing concrete, just personal opinion right now, so hearing what everyone is using and seeing may help us all out

I know. I was curious about that one, but when I tried it I had issues with force closing. I was wondering if in trying to keep the ram up to that level was closing down apps, but at levels less than thirty in slot three I noticed lag so I've compromised and am trying the gaming settings(no. 8 or 9). I still have good multitasking and no fc's or lag so far. I was curious because when Zepplinrox created the settings it was for very a low ram phone the OG. I also wonder if you try to save too much ram you get in the way of android making efficient use of memory. So trying to see if there really are differences in best settings between the OG and the DX. But it most definitely helps the phone run smoother!

Based on my skill level (or lack thereof) I think this would be the next best thing for me to learn unless someone tell me to focus elsewhere. I will get on this after.....

My girlfriends daughter is in from Charleston for the 4th and she happens to have a dx! If it were not for you guys and girls. I would not be able to take her phone from .596 and root it again. Her boyfriend rooted it and she updated from .588 without knowing it would unroot. (Is that a word?)

Thanks again to those who contribute.

So I have done some testing with v6 update5, here's the Quadrant results. Now, before you jump all over the fact that qaud scores mean bupkiss, I agree, but there is no other test for performance, and I am just presenting these as relative to one another. There is no express or implied representation that one setting is better than the other, or that the scores have anything to do with real world performance

Methodology is to set a v6 profile, reboot and run quadrant. The full benchmark was run 6 times for each profile I tested and the scores recorded. The first score was dropped, as it is always signifigantly lower (600 to 800 points lower) than all subsequent scores. Subsequent tests do show a much tighter grouping of scores, usually within 200 or so points of each other.
I then added runs 2 through 6 and divided by 5 for the average score of 5 runs.

Once complete (6 profiles so far), I then re-ran the entire sequence again. First and second sequences listed in ranking

v6# -Name -avg 2-6
First sequence
9 -MegaMem -2585
7 -MultiTsk -2565
4 -Bal1 -2502
6- Bal 3 -2494
8 -Gaming -2466
3 -Agg2 -2374

Second sequence
9 -MegaMem -2536
7 -MultiTsk -2530
3 -Agg2 -2527
4 -Bal1 -2519
8 -Gaming -2495
6 -Bal 3 -2478

So what these mean is the higher the score the faster the setting makes it run? Sorry I'm just a lol cornfused

v6 menu item#6, called Balanced 3, I got average scores of 2494 and 2478
v6 menu item#7, called MultiTasking, I got average scores of 2565 and 2530
v6 menu item#9, called MegaMemory, I got average scores of 2585 and 2536

I'm using #9 Mega memory and OC'd at 1.3 ultra low voltage and am running very smooth not any force closes or random reboots. Haven't tried any of the other settings but I'm going to, to test them out.. I was using auto-killer memory optimizer and my custom settings I was using on it are the same as I'm using on V6. This does help make your phone smoother, great work to whoever created V6

This is my first time trying to run a script and i seem to be failing at it :( i downloaded script manager, have busybox 1.18.4, and downloaded the v6 supercharger script. I followed the tutorial over at xda and ran the script (i chose the megamemory option), it said it was successful or what-not, rebooted my phone and re-ran the script only to notice that my memory settings (if that's even what it is called) seems to be back at the default settings. It also doesn't mention "Launcher is... HARD TO KILL", it only says "Launcher is... BULLETPROOF".

Am i just horrible at following directions? :(

No, it's a known issue, here's the workaround

Open Script Manager
Navigate to, and load /system/etc/init.d/99SuperCharger
Set to "run as root" abd "run at boot"

BTW, "bulletproof" is better than "hard to kill", sorta means "impossible to kill", just means your ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=0 (not 1)

I can browse as root, but don't see the option of interactive. Also don't see a Mega memory option. But when I go to running services there's not much running, so aggressive 1 seems to do the trick, if I'm understanding what its supposed to do.

You'll only need to run it once, but if the values don't stick across a reboot, you'll need to put the fix in place.
It manages memory a bit better than android default, and gives you some control over that memory management

btw I really like SmartBench 2011 for benchmarking as well...
The results are tracked at the website and after awhile, if your average scores are high enough, you will find your phone in the list of top phones after running it.

I'm pretty sure I still have the highest scoring droid/milestone :D

OK,. keeping in mind it's not a completely valid comparison as I've SBFed and reinstalled a few times, but using the same methodology I just got 2431 and 2410 on the two averages after running unsupercharge.

@HarleyDude I ran version 7 today, this is my first supercharge btw and I am on DSlide X. I found .99 and selected run at boot and roo, however after reboot and re-run I don't believe the info i am getting back is 100% in sync with the feedback I have read. It does say Launcher is HARD TO KIll, and my current minfress are way they should be per MegaMem 1 (option 8)

However it also says, "1536,3072,10240,15360,20480,25600 unxepected operator SuperCharger min frees not found! Have fun!

Any idea what that means? Should I be concerned?

I did reboot once more, and can confirm the message is the same, albeit reflecting current and prior values as the same correct settings for MegMem 1

Thanks in advance

If I recall, that's the minfree in pages, and the numbers look correct for MM
