TinyCFW Windows Fix Maximum Heap Size Error

For those using yesterday's TinyCFW release to downgrade iPad2 to 4.3.3 and are running into issues with the executable there is a fix you can try below. For me I got the error " jvm could not start-the maximum () might be too large or a antivirus is blocking the execution." Since i didn't have a firewall or running I knew that wasn't the problem. Below you can find the fix I used:

Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced system settings

Advanced (tab) and click on "Environment Variables"

Under "User variables.." click on "New"

Then add :

For Variable name = _JAVA_OPTIONS
For Variable value = -Xmx1g

For Mac users, you can just use the file, be sure to rename the file to tinycfw. and then run it normally.

    I’ve got an even easier way to fix this. I was looking at a tutorial for printmaster software to fix that sort of error. It occured to me that the spefic thing in the tutorial that this tinycfw lacks is a .VMOPTIONS file. So your Notepad…. and in it you will type -Xmx1000m. Now the “1000″ is the value of RAM I put in my file due to the fact that I have 16gb of ram in my computer. You all should check your RAM to see how much you have. So if you have 8 gb put 1000, 4gb = 1000, 2gb= 800, 1gb 500. These I would recommend for the amount of ram you might. if this does not work then decrease your RAM value in the file. If you need any help with this Comment. Now when you are done writing what you need in the file You need to save the file as tinycfw-0.1.VMOPTIONS. If you happened to change the name of the tinycfw executable file then make sure that the VMOPTIONS file has the same name so that it will recognize it.
