The N97 is known for having memory problems, the RAM that Nokia put on this device is just not enough for the capability this device has. However, Nokia is conscious that the lack of RAM is a problem and they have been trying to fix it with software updates, memory patches and now this app called ”Memory Reorganizer.”
Today I checked the ”SW Update” app in my Nokia N97 and a new ”Memory Reorganizer” update was available. I installed the app and then checked if the memory had increased. It didn’t, because this is an actual app that you have to run. After you download the Memory Reorganizer from the SW Update app, you will find the app in the Applications folder. When you run it, a warning tells you that you won’t be able to use the device while the memory is reorganizing. I thought it was going to be a long process; it just lasted like 5 seconds. I see that the memory increased a mere 2MB. After the app finishes ”reorganizing” it removes itself from the N97. How many Mbs did the Memory Reorganizer free on your Nokia N97?
Update: Some users are reporting up to 6MB freed by the Memory Reorganizer app, the normal memory freed, however, is around the 3-4MBs.
Update#2: I confused the RAM with the C: drive, the Memory Reorganizer doesn’t free RAM but C: drive. Thanks to those who commented and let me know!
