Init.d Script Collection Now Available for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II

Scripts are always fun to add to a phone. The versatility of a script can be staggering and can do anything from increasing performance to increasing battery life and sometimes even both. There isn’t much about a phone that can’t be changed with a script.

XDA Developers Senior Member stevehkim has release about half a dozen scripts for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II that range from performance tweaks to battery life and a couple of other fun tweaks.

The installation instructions are pretty simple, as stevehkim explains:

The scripts are pretty self explantory and you can adjust these values using root explorer and using the menu in root explorer to “open in text editor”. Or you can you wordpad or notepad++ on your pc and adjust them. Save the scripts to your phone. Using root explorer copy the init.d scripts to /etc/init.d. Paste in this directory and set permissions as rwx,rwx,rwx and reboot.

So if you’re toting an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II and want to get your script on, you can check out the modest collection in its thread here along with information, further instructions and discussions about them. Also, make sure you exercise the proper caution and back up your device first.
