Mechanical and mechatronics engineers may want a handy app to calculate data for drilling, milling and turning. If you're part of those, you might have searched the Play store only to give up after not finding anything useful. Fortunately, XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf found himself in that same situation, but decided to fix it by making an app to calculate what he needed. CutCalc is a simple calculator that makes tasks mechanical engineers need on a daily basis much easier,...
Supercharger and Kernelizer Scrips Available for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus
This is not the first time we’ve brought you news about the Supercharger script, as it has been around for quite some time. However, it is always exciting when users take matters into their own hands and see if it works on their devices.
XDA Senior Member diospada11 took that risk and got the Supercharger and Kernelizer scripts working on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus. The scripts appear to have pretty hefty effects on the humble tablet, says diospada11:
There are no launcher redraws and my tab sure feels a lot smoother. I also have 400 used RAM instead of 600 after a restart. Not to mention, i now have 6037 AnTuTu benchmark score as opposed to the 5700 that i got before supercharging.
After testing it out, diospada11 was kind enough to post an in depth tutorial on getting the script to work on the Galaxy Tab Plus and links to the original tutorial he used along with the original script. The process isn’t too difficult, but as always make sure you know what you’re doing before attempting.
As if that weren’t enough, diospada11 was also kind enough to do the very same with a second script called the Kick Ass Kernelizer (or KAK). When added together with the Supercharger script, the effects appear to be worth the effort.
For anyone who wants to try out the Supercharged and Kernelizer scripts on their Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus, you can find all the credits, the guide, the download links and the discussion in diospada’s thread found here. Don’t forget to make a backup just in case anything goes wrong.
