  10. I have Samsung S Duos (s7562) having 768 MB RAM, 2 GB internal SD Card and one 16 GB External SD Card. My question is thay since internal memory of my phone is also low can I use external memory card as RAM..

  11. Hi

    I am using Huawei G610 and have done all except, using FAT32 partition for swapper as, on doing Ext.2 partition, Link2S gives unmount error and tells to Fat partition. swapper has made the swap file using the same single partition but RAM seems to be the same size… :

    Can anyone please help me!

  12. Hi Dharmesh. I am using HTC Desire 310. It came with inbuilt 512mb RAM. I want to increase it RAM by adding adding another 512MB. Is it possible in my handset and if yes how to do it? i have 16gb class 6 sd card.

  13. Hello I just want to know that after making some part of sd card as ram. The sd card will work as external storage for saving videos, pictures n etc.???

  14. HI,
    I’ve got an android wifi tablet from Croma (non calling) which has only 512MB ram and processor clocked at 1GHZ, internal memory of 2 GB and an external SD card of 4GB class 6. Its obvious due to low cost this has less RAM hence hangs in multi-tasking.
    Can I actually increase the RAM to 1GB or more and boost its performance? I am actually shocked to see this video that we can actually increase RAM in an android device as all I knew so far was RAM is a hardware thing and increasing may require another physical RAM to be installed.
    Anyways, you said the device needs rooting first but I believe it will void the device warranty so shall I take the risk of doing it?
    Pls advice as my tablet is new, not even a month old! 🙁

  15. I have an Xperia S with 32 GB internal memory.. Can I install either of the application on it??

    What about the performance of SD card, I think the RAM (Virtual) will keep the memory’s process busy and the performance you try to increase by adding virtual RAM of 4GB will actually deteriorate the performance while running itself..

    One more, If I am adding a RAM of 2 GB, will that whole space of adding 2GB will be occupied on my memory card too? which means i will have 2 GB lesser space for data storage??

  16. Sir I have got a chinese tablet with 512 mb ram present can I increase my ram using class 4 16 gb memory card how much can I increase ? Is there any problem ido this or is there any problem if I root it .my tablets name is genx tab .hoping for answer

    • That’s the general prcaution you have to take before partition, you must create backup for your data. Well there are many recovery software you can use to recover your lost data.

    • for rooting there are lots of one click rooting tools, one of that link is given in this article as rooting guide. You can use them to root most of the android phones.
      As such this method is tested but there is always a risk as i can not teat them with all devices
