I have a rom that supports swap, but the swap script is missing.
How would i make that swap script manually?
I.E: What code would be in the file /etc/init.d/07swapon?

How about this?
Open a console, navigate to the android SDK tools folder. Type "adb mount /system", without the quotes doh! Type "adb shell". At the shell copy paste the following commands one by one and press enter after pasting them. echo "#!/system/bin/sh" > /system/etc/init.d/05userinit echo "swapon -a" >> /system/etc/init.d/05userinit echo "/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 swap swap" >> /system/etc/fstab chmod +x /system/etc/init.d/05userinit chmod g-w /system/etc/init.d/05userinit chmod o-w /system/etc/init.d/05userinit chmod g-w /system/etc/fstab chmod o-w /system/etc/fstab exit Now you are back at the normal command prompt, type "adb reboot". Device will reboot, when its done open a terminal and type "free". It should show swap space allocated. And with some programs in memory you can see swap being used: adb shell free total used free shared buffers Mem: 407860 399940 7920 0 872 Swap: 249596 16596 233000 Total: 657456 416536 240920
