Rooting a device isn’t just about flashing the snazzy ROMs with fun themes and uninstalling the dreaded bloatware. Some users root their devices to get access to the tweaks and mods that improve the overall performance. For many devices there are quite a few options including mods that increase signal strength, GPS accuracy and some tweaks that just make the phone faster and smoother. For many users, making their phone run as smooth as possible is a number one priority.
For HTC Sensation users, there is now an opportunity to do just that. XDA Recognized Developer memnoc has developed a few tweaks that were originally for a ROM, but it was soon discovered that the mods can be applied to any base, and therefore any ROM. This allowed the tweaks to be released independently of any ROMs and users are free to add it to theirs.
The best part? Users will be making the tweaks to the files themselves with the tutorial memnoc released along with the tweaks. It comes as a 3 stage process. First users will apply the build.prop tweaks. Then they will modify lines in init.qcom.post_boot.sh from their services.jar. The process may sound difficult to new users, but as long as the directions are followed closely, it won’t be too intimidating. As we here at XDA have been promoting learning how to develop on Android, this is a very good way to get your hands dirty doing what these modders do every day.
