Well if you dig though the furom there tons of threads about this. But there are many problems with doing it. e.g. bricking your phone.

Also all that happens if you try to expand your RAM is it just put a page file on a SD card. Like a computer or Laptop.

Eg this one: http://www.modaco.co...2276-RAM-Expand

Personally, I haven't found it useful. Better to reduce the number of apps that want to run in the background

Use Greenify and put the apps you dont use in to hibernation gives you more RAM over all - As George109 recommend ...

I've found Maps to be too resistant to Greenify's hibernation so I use App Quarantine https://play.google....d.appquarantine to freeze it on demand.

I recommended you to try a few tweaks that helps you phone feel much more responsive by using AOKP Performance Control

Here is my settings I've collect from trusted source with reason behind settings i.e. Red Hat, IBM, XDA, etc. and currently using with my phone without any problem.

CPU Govenor: smartass v2 - balance between performance and battery drain.
I/O Scheduler: NOOP or SIO
Reference: [REF] CPU Governors and I/O Schedulers

Thanks for the replies. It seems the ram expanding is a dud.... :( .Thought I could free up loads of ram If I used greenify with this and get a smoother feel on the phone with OC.
