?? PagePool ??

i want to further my understanding of what exactly it is that the page pool does when cooking your own rom. how high, how low, those sort of things. ive been hunting around and cant seem to pull anything explaining exactly what it does. can anyone help break this down for me.

7 is the default for the current kitchen.

Pagepool is a cache for executing programs (the ones that are actually running). Think of it as additional memory for your running programs.

The larger pagepool is, the more crap you can have actively running. The smaller pagepool is, the more storage memory you have (storage is the area where programs are installed).

The general idea is to make it as small as you can without having any problems (slowness or crashing), because too big is a waste of valuable storage memory. Unfortunately, that magic sweet spot is dependent on how you use your PPC. If you have tons of storage space, feel free to use some of it as pagepool.

Maybe I'm just missing something, but I wanted to know how to chage the pagepool in the AKU 3.5 kitchen from helmi_c. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

If you're using the old BuildOS (AKU 3.5 1.04 kitchen and earlier), you have to use a hex editor to change the page pool in the ROM.

Re: ?? PagePool ??

I just wanted to bump this great explanation back to the top. I keep finding myself running low on memory and since almost everything I use is built into my ROM, I can afford to lose some storage space. Just so I'm understanding correctly, if I increase my pagepool when creating my ROM, that basically moves space from my storage memory to my program memory (RAM), right? And is it possible to change the page pool without re-flashing a ROM? My phone is SO PERFECT right now, but I could definitely use more memory.

Re: ?? PagePool ??

id like to chime in on this as well..are you suggestin that adjusting the page pool is allocating storage memory to program memory?? that doesnt seem right, if we could do that, our RAM worries would be non-existent..and thats definately NOT how it currently is..

Re: ?? PagePool ??

oh naw... it definitely worked for me lol but i lost space to install programs in the process tho. i think the lower i made it, the more ram i had to run my programs so that my ppc would run a whole lot more stable. i might have to double check tho.
