Trickster Mod for Galaxy Nexus Adds Number of Kernel Features

Most modifications that we see deal with a device’s ROM. Using popular build.prop tweaks and other methods, developers can coerce better performance out of a phone by changing a few parameters here and there. Now, Samsung Galaxy Nexus have a collection of kernel modifications.

Created by XDA Senior Member bigeyes0x0, the Trickster Mod utilizes a number of scripts and binaries to add a lot of under the hood tweaks that set it apart from traditional modifications. The full list of features include:

This CWM zip include the binaries and scripts I used for optimization in Trickster ROM. What it can do/set:
– Zipalign and sqlite DB optimization at boot
– Some android properties tweaks with mobile network speed tweak
– Screen state optimization for kernel task scheduler and virtual management (ch33kybutt)
– Set I/O scheduler, read ahead buffer, CPU scaling governor, min and max CPU speed
Following features are dependent on kernel features:
– Color (applied by default), contrast and gamma tweaks
– Generic hotplug
– CPU Temp limit
– Minimal SmartReflex voltage of Core, IVA, and MPU domains
– Nominal SmartReflex voltage for Core, IVA, and MPU domains
– Regulator voltages
– GLaDOS live OC of Core, GPU and MPU
– WIFI mode for screen off (power saving or full speed)
– Vibrator strength
– Headset volume boost
– High performance sound
– Force fast charge
– Battery live extender
– Touch wake and touch wake duration
– fsync control

The mod is flashable in from a custom recovery, making the installation process easy. Users who want to tweak the settings of the mod can navigate to the trickster.conf file with their favorite file explorer, and edit the values themselves.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
