    Default Low Ram with 4.2.1

    I was using xenon HD with Franko 361 and his lean kernel. I noticed my ram was getting down to about 160mb so I switched to cm 10 and left the kernel alone. Same thing is still happening. Are you guys getting the same thing or do I have something eating my ram up.

    Android manages ram for you. You shouldn't worry about it being high or low. The operating system is designed to keep things in ram for easy access.
    In android, unused team is a waste. This isn't windows.
    Working as expected.

    The less ram the better, that means it's being used, if it's all free then what's the point of having it since it's not being used for anything? Now if it gets down to the 70's or below that might be a reason to ask about it but my Gnex generally sits between 210 and 180mb of ram, I am using Paranoidandroid 2.99 BetaNINE.9+. I have no lag and everything works great!

    My GNex usually sits between 180-250MB of RAM free with a fair amount of multitasking. Maybe 150MB free when I'm pushing things. Normal. I wouldn't worry too much about it, as long as everything still feels relatively fluid.
