SpeedMod Kernel for Samsung Captivate now Available

SpeedMod, probably the most popular kernel originally developed for the Samsung Galaxy S, is now available for the AT&T Captivate too. XDA member hardcore, the developer of SpeedMod, decided to create the same kind of kernel for the Captivate.
The developer’s aim is to have a kernel that is fast, compatible, stable, and with good battery life. It contains many custom features:

Originally posted by hardcore

– Based on JPX Android 2.2.1 kernel source
– Works on all stock Froyo 2.2 and 2.2.1 ROMs and popular custom ROMs
– 339MB RAM and all features should work
– Enhanced version of sztupy’s Universal Lagfix
– Includes neldar’s BackLightNotification 2.3 from https://github.com/project-voodoo/ba…ernel_patches/
– Sharpness & color fix for UI, inspired by supercurio’s work on Voodoo
– SpeedMod: Replaced kernel jhash2 with jhash3
– Includes my Startup Tweaks from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=813309
– Adjusted kernel HZ value to (hopefully) balance battery life & smoothness
– Uses BFQ IO scheduler by default, from http://algo.ing.unimo.it/people/paol…ed/sources.php
– Updated ext4 code in kernel from http://www2.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker…/ext4-patches/
– Properly working Tiny RCU patch for better speed and efficiency from http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=ker…90160a18caf95d
– Optimized compiler flags: -O3 -mcpu=cortex-a8 -mfpu=neon -mfloat-abi=softfp

Don’t worry if you don’t understand most of this – we can tell you now that the kernel is really good.
Yet, be sure that you know how to flash kernels to your phone. Otherwise, it would be a good idea to investigate further before doing things that could brick your phone.
Check out the thread for more information and download the kernel.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
