This is a cgroups mod to make N9 less laggy that requires some testing.

This version is very different from the 0.0.2, it is not a memory mod anymore. Now the app modify a configuration file in the phone to change the priorities the processes have in using the CPU.

My experience is that all lags are gone (except shortly after reboot). Please use it at least for a day before taking any conclusions.

Do REBOOT after installing.

PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING. THIS IS A TESTING VERSION, THERE MAY BE PROBLEMS (tough I've been using it for a week and had no problems so far). ANYWAY, BE AWARE YOU MAY EVEN LOOSE DATA AND I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE.

DO NOT INSTALL IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO REFLASH YOUR PHONE. THIS IS A TESTING VERSION, ONLY BRAVE PEOPLE SHOULD INSTALL.

For installing, download the package and click it.
For uninstalling, open settings, then applications, the Applications Manager: Settings->Applications->Applications manager

If this app made you happy, please remember to donate. I lost some weeks and some money while developing this mod, as I didn't know I had limited downloads for the apps I bought in the store (reflashed my phone many times and now have to pay again for the apps).

Thank you all for your feedback, it helped a lot.
