Every "RAM Expander" app out there will require a swap-enabled kernel. This is because the app needs to leverage the kernel to transfer data out of memory and into the swap space. You will need to search and see if a swap-enabled custom kernel exists for your tablet. If the manufacturer provides source files for the kernel, a developer can make such a kernel.

What about it? I don't use these apps on my current devices so I'm not familiar with the various apps. The one device that would have derived any benefit from it used zRAM instead.

You're simply going to have to try the app you named for yourself. Just don't be surprised if it doesn't work because of the kernel.

Modifying a compiled kernel is very difficult, so you should have the source files. The manufacturers are supposed to provide them as the kernel falls under the GPL, but Chinese tablet makers usually don't bother.
