[TWEAK] Gain Up To 20MB Of Ram With This Cab

Hey guys. Im always looking for ways to free up RAM and program memory on my tp2. i stumbled across a way to free up to 20mb of RAM by disabling PreLoadRes.exe.

What is PreLoadRes.exe and what does it do?
PreLoadRes.exe stands for Preload Resources. This exe loads up to 20mb of files at startup so that certain apps load faster. This PreLoadRes.exe doesnt seem to make anything load any faster, and we all know we could use the extra 20mb of free ram. This tweak has also been used in custom roms such as Mighty Mike and NRG's roms. Disabling PreLoadRes.exe has had no negative effects on my Sprint tp2 on stock 6.5 rom. There is a cab file attached, thanks to dunebuggydude11 for making the cab. This is fully uninstallable if you decide you no longer want to use it. All the cab file does is remove the following registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\BootLauncher\Apps\P reLoadRes]

This stops PreLoadRes.exe from loading


ENJOY!

Re: [tweak] save 20mb of ram with this simple tweak

What does this key actually do that causes it to use that much memory? What does changing it turn off?

do you remember the resproxy tweak for wm 6.1? well it doesnt work for wm 6.5. it seems that 6.5+ uses preloadres.exe instead of resproxy like the older roms. From my understanding, it preloads stuff at startup. maybe someone else can give more info. im about to google a little more and see what i can find.

yea mighty mike probably cooked this tweak into his roms already. from what ive read, many custom roms already use this tweak. i made a reg backup of the preloadres key, but have no idea where my phone saved it. i will post it when i find it so that this tweak is fully reversible

im pretty sure if mightymike precooked this into his rom, its a good tweak
