SlaidyBoost Brings Better Performance and Battery Life to Galaxy Ace

Not all phones are at their optimal performance and battery life out of the box. Even with a heavily tweaked ROM or kernel, some phones require just a little extra boost. This is why users install various scripts, tweaks, and mods—to get that little extra jolt and make their phones everything they can be. As a follow up to his work on the Nexus S, XDA Recognized Contributor slaid480 has developed another script for the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

The tweak features what you’d expect from a high quality script. Not only does it bring better performance. but it also boasts better battery life and even a few build.prop and other tweaks to help enhance and increase 3G network speeds. The only catch is that the script doesn’t come in an easy to flash update.zip file, users will have to manually place the files where they belong and set the permissions correctly. After that, and a reboot, the script should be firmly in place and giving the Galaxy Ace a new breath of life. There are a few requirements, as users need to be running Gingerbread, a kernel that allows init.d scripts, and at least 1MB of free space in their /system.

For additional details, a more complete list of features, requirements and instructions as well as a hefty thank-you list and more, check out the scipt thread. As per the norm, make a backup before flashing.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
