I'm no Android expert so can't comment on "LargeHeap=true", but, I would advise you to be sure that your app's memory usage is legitimate and check that you don't have a memory leak. If you have a memory leak, then increasing the heap size is just putting off the inevitable.

Instead of increasing heap you should investigate why your app use so much memory.
Are you using large Bitmaps?
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
