Enter God Mode

How would you like to have an incredibly fast rom, based on the latest of the latest for your EVO? Sure, you can find a few roms that will fit this description and many will indeed offer some speed improvements and enhancements, but in order to make your device truly fly, people fall back on overclocking the processor. As a result of this, most tasks performed by the device become a considerable percentage faster and more responsive. Well, XDA member Virus. has made a major improvement to his already popular Kingdom rom for the EVO 4G. The newer versions of this rom come pre-loaded with what he called God Mode. But wait, what is this God Mode? Leaving all the technical aspects aside (as they are not 100% clear to me), God Mode in essence is a new yaffs2+ext2 partition made in the rom, which drastically improves the I/O performance on a device. While I understand that people don’t exactly believe in benchmark results, the EVO 4G (which need I remind you has a 1 GHz Snapdragon on it) yields Quadrant results of well over 1900 without it being overclocked.

If you are interested in learning more about this, the dev has a full wiki page where he clearly explains everything. Moreover, you can find a link to a PowerPoint presentation for the original concept behind this mod.

in a nutshell we are setting up a yaffs2+ext2 partition. The concept I based this mod on was was originally presented by Hansung Chun written up here This combines yaffs for wear leveling ontop of ext2 for performance.

You can find more information in the rom thread and in the wiki.
