If you’re an Android ROM-flashing junkie (in other words, if you have ORD) and you own a Galaxy S, just skip the intro and jump immediately to the third paragraph. To make it easy for Android novices, we have some extra -well explained – information to help you learn more about the possibilities of hacking your Galaxy S.
There have been several fixes around that are supposed to reduce the lag on the Galaxy S, and many of them work great. The amount of hacks and tweaks for the Galaxy S has been increasing over time, and XDA developer sztupy found it was time to create a kernel with universal capabilities – but more about that later. He gathered multiple hacks by various developers and has put them into a kernel, which gives your phone much more consistent speed and overall improved experience.
What this kernel lets you do is basically switch between several “schemes”, each scheme containing a different set of fixes and hacks. These schemes can be controlled in the tweaked clockworkmod, where you can also switch between various startup tweaks, but let’s talk more about the schemes. According to the developer, these schemes are “ways on how to format and bind the various filesystems. You can chose how you want to format the partitions (data,dbdata and cache), whether you want to use an extra loop device or not, and whether you want to bind some directories from /data to /dbdata.” In other words, you can make your own combination of formats and other partitions to your own needs.
Everything is explained much more in the thread though, so it’s worth checking it out if you want to know more. Please bear in mind that this is an alpha build, so there may be some unstable behavior and bugs. If you’re new to all of this, we highly recommend to first read as much as possible before flashing any kernels and ROMs to your phone._________
