Mod Pack for TouchPad Delivers Better Performance

Development for the HP TouchPad has always been impressive, especially considering the degree to which it was a commercial flop. Despite being discontinued a number of times, the device still gets more than its fair share of development.

XDA Forum Member rohan32 has released a mod pack aimed at increasing everything from performance and battery life to even faster media streaming.

The feature list is pretty extensive and includes:

-wifi speed increases
-changed bluetooth name to “Touchpad”
-changed build id to “IML74K” so that it is compatible with the Chrome Beta
-increased quality of photos and videos
-added initial dalvik heapsize for better start up
-changed the wifi scan interval to 180 (save battery when not connected to wifi)
-kernel tweaks for less debugging/more RAM
-higher events per second for the window manager (smoother scrolling)
-overall performance boost and responsiveness increase with higher cache values
-disable sending usage data (not sure if functional but it was a property listed in the documentation)
-deeper sleep during the night hours for better battery life
-disables error checking
-faster media streaming
-changed device info to that of a SGH-T989 from Samsung so most Gameloft games are compatible to download the SD files
-270 degree rotation
-uses image dithering for faster performance
-keeps launcher in memory for faster launcher performance
-better battery management in terms of percentage and associated kernel actions

Installation of the mod is pretty simple and requires flashing in ClockworkMod Recovery. The mod has been tested for CyanogenMod 7.2, but could also work for other ROMs. Be sure to make a backup before installing, just in case.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want.
