Tweak Your Device Kernel Parameters with PACPerformance

Pretty much every large-scale, multi-device custom ROM that has gained a significant number of users has something that makes it unique. Some offer unique features, while others offer flawless performance, customizability, and stability–and a lucky few manage to accomplish all of the above handedly. One of the custom ROMs that many now call their default ROM is PAC ROM. For those who are unfamiliar, PAC ROM brings many of the goodies from Paranoid Android, AOKP, and CyanogenMod together, and packages them into one, multi-purpose ROM. However, not everything that makes PAC ROM good comes from the aforementioned components. There’s also quite a lot to the ROM that is good in its own right. One example is PACPerformance, the built-in kernel tweaker app offered by the amalgamation ROM.

Up until today, users had to install PAC ROM in order to give PACPerformance a try. However, it’s now been opened up for users of all ROMs to try. Created by XDA Recognized Developer Grarak, PACPerformance lets you tweak all of the relevant performance aspects of your device such as CPU speed and governor, to changing your I/O schedulers, and much more. In addition, the app offers quite a lot in terms of CPU, memory, kernel, and governor stats to keep track of how your device behaves over time.

If you’ve been wanting to give PACPerformance a try but are not a PAC ROM user, now’s your chance. Head over to the PACPerformance application thread to give this a whirl!

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea.
