    I think it's a great app but I won't buy anything that is .deb related. I don't mind paying through cydia via paypal but don't want to do anything via terminal.
    Don't forget to hit the thanks button if you liked what I said or did

    Im with you, the last time I SSH into my phone I messed it up and had to do a restore. If I could download it and let it install I would have bought this already.

    First off, excellent service, received file within a couple of minutes

    Did what stated, increased my available memory, in fact on my 3G it almost doubled it LOL

    but

    A lot of apps seem to crash a lot, splash screen will load, hang and then go back to springboard (tomtom, angry birds are the worst).

    I've also found that the phone has hung when receiving calls!

    I've uninstalled SC and everything working fine now and that's with lower available memory.

    Weird, can't fault the service from ibnyaffa but just didn't play ball on my device

    Looking at around 35-40 without SC and 70 with.

    I've just disabled intelliscreen and reinstalled SC, seems to be playing ball a bit better

    I had the same problems as Todd, but I don't have intelliscreen. Especially with angry birds, very glitchy. So I had to uninstall. I'll have to try it again after I restore next time

    For the record, I use IntelliScreen and have with the VM mod, Vroom and now Super(dooper)charged without issues at all. Just an fyi.

    ok.. so here is my thoughts about the glebo rmf

    i downloaded the deb yesterday at 6:15pm, everything went smooth in the download i must say.

    so i started to give the tweak a push like i usually do with any tweak that i hear is competing with supercharged.
    i push it as much as i push supercharged...

    heres what happened with me.
    at 6:44 i decided to start the mem freeing proccess after i plaied with the settings of the app..

    phone crashed twice after i ran freeing up mem..

    phone crashed twice after it came back on and was inside safari.

    mail did not and wont quit at all.. even after turning push off..

    the most that ive gotten was 156mb after freeing up mem.. so i decided to change the values in the SH file and delted the # from 220 and now the phone started to crash when its in standby mod.. i mean the phone was seting on the desk and it will restart on it own.

    i tried to free mem twice in a row like i would do with SuperCharged and the phone crashed.

    phone would crash when i leave safari...

    now i know this is not the case with most phones.. and it could be my phone only.. but i didnt not like going through all that just from 6:44 to 7:23 thats too much stuff with in that small time period.

    but i did find some nice things around the net about thr RMF and SuperCharged that i would like to share with ya'll


    here is a nice comment and review from hotstuff2 a member at X**** about VM mods that should clear any thoughts about it...


    Quote
    irst of all, before I say anything else, allow me to cite my experience and certifications. I'm a Computer Systems Engineer with a specialty in Security, and have done programming as well. My certifications include:
    (ISC)˛ SSCP & CISSP®-ISSEP certified
    CompTIA A+®, Network+®, Server+™, and Security+™
    Microsoft MOUS, MOS Master, MCP+I, MCDST, MCSA Security, MCSE Security
    Granted, none of those are explicitly hardware or programming, but it gives you an idea that I might have experience and know something about what I'm going to say. I've worked for several Fortune 100 companies, alongside some of the best and brightest hardware engineers out there, and have had many, many discussions with them on flash RAM *and* hard drive platters, and the lifecycle of writes both are capable of. One thing I like to tell people (when they ask me how long a given hard drive or flash device will last) is something an engineer at Seagate once told me:

    "A hard drive (or flash drive) has an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of 5 years, give or take 5 years."

    I (and I'm sure many of you as well) have had hard drives/flash drives/phones die within 3 months of breaking the seal on a brand-new one, without any mods. I also have several phones (notably the Motorola Razr) that have lasted me several years, with heavy use (and mods, in my case.) I even have a few (SCSI) hard drives that are over 15 years old, still running strong 24x7 in my server tower.

    Now, as for this (or Vroom, or any other mod like this) "shortening" the lifespan of your device, that's BS. Yes, the chip manufacturers say that each one can be written to, say, something like 150,000 to 250,000 times. However, that's an average capability, not an absolute number. Some chips will fail after 10,000 writes. Others will last beyond 1,000,000. Furthermore, the "failure" doesn't mean it will stop working entirely, just that at least one write didn't work properly. It will continue to work beyond that (I've seen it happen, as described below.) How long does yours have? Good guess. The way the manufacturers test the chips (and I also worked for Jabil Circuit, back in 1999; they make a majority of circuit boards and chips for a major portion of the sector), is that they run a batch of somewhere around 15,000 - 25,000 chips. At a random point in the process, they'll pull 100-250 chips off the line, and run them through the testing procedure. If 80% of the chips can be written to 200,000 times without a write failure, they're stamped as "pass", and given the "150,000 - 250,000 MTBF capability" (margin of error being ~25% generalized.) They're not tested beyond that many writes. Seriously. I've actually participated in the testing procedure and watched it be done - and yes, I've seen an entire run of chips be destroyed because only 79% of the chips passed the MTBF test. Just an FYI, computer CPUs are done the same way - which is why some CPUs can be overclocked more than others, although it's a slightly different testing process; just as a side point, I'll explain: if the CPU is rated for, say, 2.4GHz, and the test run fails at that speed, the CPU is clocked to the next-lowest number, say, 2.2GHz, and tested again. If they pass, the entire run is stamped as 2.2GHz, even though they were originally 2.4GHz, or even higher. I once say a run of 3.2GHz Intel P4 processors get stamped as 1.8GHz speeds because of this. AMD is worse at quality control than Intel, which is also why AMD processors are typically capable of higher overclock speeds than Intel chips.)

    Will this mod "kill" your device? Will it make it "shitty for the buyer" if you sell your iPhone in a year? For 99.8% of you, absolutely, positively not. Will your iPhone die within 4-5 years? Probably, even without this mod. Will it last 10 years? Probably. Your iPhone/iPod device really isn't any different than the laptop I'm typing on now. Trust me when I say that not only is my laptop on 24x6.99, it's in use a good 18 hours a day, every day. It's about a year old, but it'll last several more years (I won't have it, of course - I upgrade frequently - but my kids or someone else will be using it, just as they're using my other hand-me-down devices.) I have an iRiver iHP-120 (later called the H20, because Hewlett-Packard, aka HP, actually sued iRiver over the "iHP" name - even though iRiver was using it LONG before HP was doing anything involving music.) I should have gotten the 140gb model, but I bought it on clearance at Best Buy back in the day for $130 + tax. Mine's still pristine, not a single scratch on it, kept in a nice rubberized case. I use it as my "master storage" for MP3 files (I don't have more than 20gb of music anyway), and it's used frequently to copy music between my computers and my iPhones. It's one of the best MP3 players ever made, notable because it has digital audio out - have you seen that option on an MP3 player? Lots of DJs and other people (karaoke guys mostly) snatch these up on eBay whenever they can, and it still commands a premium price because of the digital audio out. It's working perfectly fine, and it's 5+ years old. I have two iRiver H20 players (also bought on clearance, but from Staples); those were the "upgrade" to the H20, but lacked digital audio out. Both of them died within months of buying them brand-new; turns out there was a problem with the hard drives used (and it was a common problem.) I'm looking at one of them right now, and plan to work on it today to give to my son (who's already lost one iPhone 2G, had another 2G stolen, and this was his old MP3 player.) See my point? (edit: Just cranked the H20 up, which hasn't been turned on in probably ~3 years, and it's working fine, even though the last time I turned it on, it was throwing errors with the hard drive. Go figure. My son's happy, now he has a working MP3 player at least.)

    Whew, 49! That's a whole bunch'a Mobile Substrate Addons, eh?

    I checked my available memory before installing this mod (I ran MemTool and had it clean first as well); ~131mb:



    I installed it and rebooted, and had 190mb (which then dropped to 188mb, then to 189mb):



    However, sitting here helping my son install Windows 7 on a spare laptop, my phone hard rebooted on it's own. After it rebooted, I did the same process; after MemTool, I have 113mb free RAM (why there's 18mb less than before I don't know.) Ran this script again, and it shows 173mb (then dropped to 172mb, where it stayed.) The iPhone has been sitting here for ~20 minutes now and hasn't rebooted on it's own again, so maybe just a fluke before...I don't notice any lag in typing, but I'm also not seeing a huge gain in anything, either. I'll let my son play some games on it (something heavy-duty, I have several installed.) I'll test it out over the next few days, see if I notice anything more zippy.

    -------------------
    I just ran the mod again, after respringing; 192mb free. And the phone hasn't rebooted on it's own again, so yeah, I'm going with "fluke" on that single time it did.

    Anyway, if you read all this, sorry for the book. But my point is: don't be afraid to install this; it's not going to do anything your device isn't already capable of. Think of it as running a marathon; you're capable of it, but most of you just haven't done it, right? Some of you can't, because maybe you've had a heart attack, are overweight, or some other reason, but most of you probably could, correct? Same analogy applies to this mod.

    Have fun. .
    ^^^ in regard of this post guys btw... the fluke hes talking about will happen when and if u have memtool installed.. just an fyi.

    In my experience, despite all the excellent hard work that has gone into RFM..Its just not stable and ultimately, can result in having to remove and/or restore your phone. The contributors have a great idea, but its seems like so much stuff has been incorporated/added into it, that its become an unstable mess. Have to admit, in its simplified state.. version 2.6.6 (I think) it was actually looking like it would become something stable and useful. However, since having too many problems to mention with v2.6.6, I have stayed away from this entirely. The last version I attempted to use was 3.2.0/1 (I think that was it) and it too was a nightmare. The constant re-springs, overabundance of features and overall lack of a truly experienced development team, have rendered this unusable. Once again, I consider this a great idea, but its just not a usable mod at this point. Not trying to offend the guys that worked so diligently on this and remember, this is just my experience.. I could have not done something right or misunderstood the practical application for this... If you do install this, make sure you are prepared to fix your phone; either removing this completely or restore and please report your back with your experience.

    I would have to say that the recent VM mod Supercharged is really quite the opposite from what I've seen with other VM mods. It's stable, reliable and truly works on my 3G. It combines Dave Ashman's MemTap and really sets this mod apart from the previous VM mods I've tried/seen. I've seen my availble free Memeory shoot from 20MB to 60MB+ consistently since installing!
    now i must add that aberkanobee was asked to try the glebo rmf, i havint read anything from him yet... but will post his thoughts as soon as he does.

    ^Thats gotta be the longest post I've ever read lol. Really helps with understanding all this stuff and even though I didnt need any more convincing this is like expert testimonial evidence to prove that the life of your iphone will not be affected signifigently having this mod. But I still got this guy beat with my 72 mobile substrates still running at 180-190 after freeing the mem on my 3gs

    It was intended yo convence any one about supercharged as much it was an experts testimonial about how vm mods work and how the disk writes work.

    And just my Input about alot of poeple asking me to try rmf tweak.
