Deodex or Odex; Use the Best of Both Worlds for Eee Pad Transformer

The deodex vs odex debate is nearly as old as Android itself. While deodex allows for customization, odex typically wins the performance race and no one can be really sure which one is better. So why not use both?

This is the challenge being tackled by XDA Senior Member Danzano, who’s posted about a tweak that users carrying the Asus Eee Pad Transformer can use to give their deodexed systems all the speed of odex without actually making it odex.

The process is a little complicated, and requires using Terminal Emulator, so be sure you pay careful attention to the instructions if you plan on trying it. It involves a number of commands in the terminal emulator as well as some build.prop changes. Of course, be sure to back up your build.prop file before attempting just in case something goes wrong.

The features of the tweak include:

[*]More free RAM.
[*]Faster launch for system & user apps during the second launch.
[*]Gives as much as of a performance boost as ODEX without odexing. Themer friendly.
[*]Smoother app switching.

The only disadvantage is that it has the potential to break some applications, although there have been no reported broken applications yet.

If this looks like something you’d be interested in doing, then by all means check out the original thread for all the terminal commands and list of build.prop changes. Also, at the end of the first post is the terminal commands to reverse all the changes made, so if something isn’t working properly, the method to reverse the changes are easily accessible.

When Google announced its wearables initiative around this time last year with LG and Motorola being the frontrunning hardware partners, many were skeptical about the endeavor.
