    I noticed the heapsize is set at 32. This is not stable for the nexus. Just wanted to point this out.

    Is not stable? Why?
    I thought 32mb is standard value.
    My one is 64mb, no problems with it

    Is there an option to change it in miui? When I had cyanogen, 24 was the most stable for me.

    Sent from my Nexus One using the miui-dev.com Forums App

    This might be why some of you are having FC issues. Point me to a link which states a dalvik vm heap size of 32M is bad for Nexus One please.

    Also Cyanogen ships with a dalvik.vm.heapsize of 32m so I'd love to know where you get your info from :)


    Thanks,

    Mark

    32 was very unstable when 2.2 first came out, but maybe this was fixed? I was hoping it would fix my launcher FC from folders/themes(I think from these?), but it has definitely not helped with the Launcher.

    Eitherway, there is an easy way to fix it.

    Open a terminal app, type su, then, a2sd largeheap (largeheap is 1 word) It will set you to 24. a2sd help for the commands to get back to 32 (megaheap I believe)
     
  7. u can change the VM Heapsize wtih this APP : VM Heap Tool (root only)

    I never read anywhere that a Heapsize of 32MB are bad for a Nexus One also.. but make ur changes...

    Nice app my logcats says E/dalvikvm-heap(11019): 218880-byte external allocation too large for this process.

    Trying adjusting heap to 24 and it got worst.

    I have posted most of my log in the bugs section in hopes to eliminate the fc problem with folders and editing.

    Btw. I fixed my launcher problems by wiping and applying no themes. So themes have an issue. Heap size was not a problem though.
