Problems Identified on the Transformer Infinity and Mods to Help

Development on the ASUS Transformer TF700, also known as the Infinity, has just begun to pick up speed. With bootloader unlock and root already possible, it’s just a matter of developers getting their digital claws into the tablet to see what it can do. To an extent, that’s happened already, as a few mods have already been posted for the newest non-Nexus ASUS tablet.

XDA Senior Member d14b0ll0s has released five modifications that users can make to their Infinity without requiring too much more than root and an unlocked bootloader. The mods cover a few specifics such as build.prop tweaks, minfree tweaks, and the customary root and unlock methods. The mods also include a fix for screen flickering when using Smart Dimmer.

One big issue it deals with, though, is yet another I/O speed throttling issue. Sadly, the Infinity has inherited the Transformer Prime I/O bottleneck problem. For those who aren’t on the latest from ASUS, the answer so far has been using the SIO I/O scheduler to try to squeeze a little more performance out of the tablet. However, ASUS seems to actually want to fix this problem, as the latest OTA actually has a slightly faster I/O scheduler than SIO. It doesn’t make the problem go away, but it’s a little more manageable until a more permanent fix can be found.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
