Increase Your VM Heap Size With VM Heap Tool

Increase Your VM Heap Size With VM Heap Tool

If you’re the sort of Android device owner who like to make a few mods to your phone such as giving more demanding applications more heap space, then take a look at VM Heap Tool.

A tweak designed by XDA forum member martino2k6, VM Heap Tool allows you to change the VM heap size, decreasing the frequency of garbage collection and giving apps more heap space.

The app lets you easily change the heap size without having to adb pull, edit and adb push files from and to your phone. Note that since VM Heap Tool modifies a variable that can affect the stability of the system, you should be careful how you use the tool.

Requires root access and busybox.

VM Heap Tool is available to download free from the Market, but for more information, visit the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
