In this case I suspect that you system has no init.d support. Can you check that ?

What ROM / Kernel are you using ?

Well in that case, forget about this mod, it's integrated in the kernel ;)

Flash the mod uninstaller and reflash the kernel and be sure to activate "Hardswap" in Aroma, that will do the trick.

And also, enable init.d support in the kernel Aroma menu.

To enable init.d support on the kernel, i need to select ramfs to take of it?

Nevermind, got it to work now. Seems that was the problem. Thanks for your help JP! :D

Also a quick question, which are your favorite setting for LMK using swap? For now, im using stock samsung, should i change it to something else? :P

Used to set it to Medium, but lately been on stock, avoids slight lags so far.

The size is determined by the size of the swap partition, if you want more swap, you need to increase the partition size.
