Smurfed Out Script Brings a Variety of Tweaks to EVO 4G and Others

Ever wondered what Papa Smurf is up to when he’s not foiling Gargamel’s latest evil plot or lusting after Smurfette? I know I have. Apparently he hangs around the EVO 4G forums helping people get the most out of their devices.

There are plenty of ways to maximize the performance of your device, but unfortunately it can be somewhat time consuming and awkward to make the necessary changes to implement things like build.prop and init.d tweaks, especially if you wish to implement several at once. However XDA Forum Moderator & Recognized Contributor PapaSmurf151 has created a script that will install a variety of  tweaks created by numerous developers, users and some of his own, to help you optimize performance from your device as easily as possible.

The script works by asking you a few questions relating to your needs and how you use your device before deciding on which tweaks are appropriate to install. It will seek out any duplicate entries in your build.prop, and remove them to prevent conflicts and also create backups in case you wish to roll back the changes made. Tweaks include battery, memory, WiFi/3G, speed, SD card and governor tweaks. The release thread also contains a huge amount of information relevant to the options available from running this script so you can be sure that you know exactly how this is benefiting your device.

The script can be run via ScriptManager or Terminal, and should work on the vast majority of devices including the HTC EVO 4G. Obviously you’ll want to back up first before making any changes though, just in case.

If you’d like to take this for a spin then head on over to the original thread.
