    Has anyone ever made their ipod touch faster by putting more RAM inside it? If so, a link to the thread would be nice. Thanks.

    I don't think thats possible... You can do a virtual memory (VM) mod.

    Yeah... these things are made so that you can't physically modify them. Just like Macs have been since forever. And the iPhone. And the iPad. And everything electronic with an Apple stuck to it.

    Hey u cant add inside it but u can free up more 30MB ram with all my respect to the owner of this i will put i cant find his post anymore but i have saved the his post before to my ipod so here is the way
    INCREASESE RAM
    If you think that iMemoryEnhancer is too risky and unstable to use (causes boot loop, brick device...) then creating a swap file to use as a virtual memory is a perfect solution. What it does is that it simply is a daemon that will use a portion of your flash drive as virtual ram. Unlike swap file, iMemoryEnhancer not only use flash drive but it also does other stuff (that idk) that can cause boot loop and other damages.
    Ok here are the steps:

    1) Navigate to /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ using iFile.

    2) Create a new file and name it 'com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist', set the 'owner' as 'root' and the 'group' as 'wheel', the rest leave them at default.

    3) SSH into that plist file u just created, open it with notepad and add the following code then save it:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Label</key>
    <string>com.apple.dynamic_pager</string>
    <key>KeepAlive</key>
    <true/>
    <key>OnDemand</key>
    <false/>
    <key>ProgramArguments</key>
    <array>
    <string>/sbin/dynamic_pager</string>
    <string>-F</string>
    <string>/private/var/vm/iphone_swap</string>
    </array>
    <key>RunAtLoad</key>
    <true/>
    <key>UseEncryptedSwap</key>
    <false/>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    4) SSH into "/private/var/preferences/" and create a file named "com.apple.virtualMemory.plist" with he same properties as the other one.

    5) Copy and paste this into the new file, then save it:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
    "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>UseEncryptedSwap</key>
    <false/>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    6) Reboot ur ipod touch IMMEDIATELY.

    7) Use "Free Memory" function in SBSSettings. At first, u'll see that the amount of free memory will drop to 29-30MB, but then after 5-6 seconds it will go back up to 75-85 MB.

    8) Enjoy new speed

    It's dangerous, but you can give Virtual Memory methods a try.
