You're welcome, and thanks for the compliment! I pretty much wasted the whole day futzing and posting...but it was sucky outside anyway! :rofl3: Nice today, so a trip outdoors is in order.
Maris: I'll look into the RAM a bit more, but I suspect the Linux quirk applied to accessing the RAM for running apps, and that is what we gained with the change.
I noticed - not sure if it was there in 2.1 but in Settings, Wireless & networks, Mobile networks there is an option Data Enabled. Enable data access over Mobile network.
I unchecked it thinking that syncing and emails would come over the WiFi - NOPE, no emails came in until I put the check mark back.
Any ideas as to why this is an option?
This morning I had 22 MB free space for apps internally, and now, without deleting anything, I have 34 MB free. I wonder if it did some built-in housekeeping for me? Anyway, I do see quite an improvement in speed and no real problems. Just had to trash and re-make a couple of my home screen app shortcuts.
The extra memory is coming from the new Linux kernel used in FroYo. The previous kernel didn't allow the addressing (using) of all RAM banks.
DiskCache files just hold frequently accessed data so it loads up more quickly. I always had them (more than one), but maybe because I was using Cyanogen rom. I'm not sure "what" data it's holding, but I've deleted mine on Cyanogen lots of times. They just keep being re-created
