I noticed that RAM used is always more than 90%! Without opened applications... In 850 Mb of RAM used are 820 Mb and free only 40 Mb instead SWAP used are 0,03 Mb of 520 Mb!!! When I kill android's service I have 75%! But always without no applications opened.. System needs 75% of RAM is too crazy I think

How do you check the amount of RAM used exactly?

I think it's just Linux doing its magic on borrowing unused memory for disk caching. You can check your caching by "free -m" on command line. Have a look at the row that says "-/+ buffers/cache" in the "free" column.

Wow, this is the correct answer?! Please guys, learn some Linux basics before enabling the developer-mode... :/

@Sthocs - Yes, I assumed based on his description that he didn't know this, which seemed to be the case. Is it such a big deal?
