JIT Enabled for HTC Hero

XDA forum member Jus10o has managed to get JIT enabled and working on his HTC Hero (CDMA).

Android 2.0 code includes the source code for a Just In Time (JIT) compiler for Dalvik. It detects hot code and then compiles that code as needed providing a performance boost which of course needs to to be balanced against the cost in battery life and memory.

Originally from the Motorola Milestone,  JIT works on HTC Sense but is unstable and force closes a lot. However without HTC Sense, and using HelixLauncher by XDA forum member arctu, Jus100 has confirmed that it runs very smooth. He particularly noticed a significant improvement in speed between opening and closing multiple apps.

Currently, the HTC lock screen does not work – the menu button must be used. Other non HTC slide programs appear to be fine.  Requires Android 2.0 (Eclair) or higher.

For more information check out the forum thread.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
