Seems the limt of RAM for Aliendalvik is still something around 500 MB.

With JP 1 I didn't complain, but with the XA2 it's very painfull.

Especially the young future SFOS user are hard to convince to change their OS when they have a look in the native App-stores. They start to get really interested when I mention the Android support. But open several or RAM-intense Android apps (Photo-/Videoeditors, games, etc.) makes flickering or slow impressions and the feeling of going backwards 5 years ago. :(

Is there a way to get rid of that limit? Why is it there anyway?

Mine doesn't even start due to hitting a 256MB limit, so any info on this would be very welcome.

I think this issue is due to the non-optimization of aliendalvik. I think they're going to make it more robust in the future updates

@Sakke What you mean with non-optimization of aliendalvik?

"I think they're going to make it more robust in the future updates"

If "they" means the Jolla Sailors and "future" means during the lifetime of XA2, please share your method to get so optimistic! :-D

I don't experience this with Photoshop/Lightroom for instance. Do you have a Google account added on your XA2? (not in dalvik)
