Android 2.1 JIT compiler a waste of time

So I have been experimenting with a JIT compiler in Android, and I have to say, it is really frustrating when the HTC Hero runs out of internal memory because of the memory requirements of JIT, and Android 2.1 automatically reboots itself. Besides that "feature", it works great.

I have read that Android 3 will have built-in support for JIT, and I imagine that phones newer than the HTC Hero will come with more built-in memory, so until then I think I will switch back to the standard Dalvik VM and get my geeky kicks elsewhere. (Such as with OC'ed kernels.) For now.

    for us, android 2.1 phones owners, in a day by day intensive use, the things just don't works like the theory. sorry about my english.
