Universal Lagfix Tweak Kernel for Galaxy S

If you’re an Android ROM-flashing junkie (in other words, if you have ORD) and you own a Galaxy S, just skip the intro and jump immediately to the third paragraph. To make it easy for Android novices, we have some extra -well explained – information to help you learn more about the possibilities of hacking your Galaxy S.

There have been several fixes around that are supposed to reduce the lag on the Galaxy S, and many of them work great. The amount of hacks and tweaks for the Galaxy S has been increasing over time, and XDA developer sztupy found it was time to create a kernel with universal capabilities – but more about that later. He gathered multiple hacks by various developers and has put them into a kernel, which gives your phone much more consistent speed and overall improved experience.

What this kernel lets you do is basically switch between several “schemes”, each scheme containing a different set of fixes and hacks. These schemes can be controlled in the tweaked clockworkmod, where you can also switch between various startup tweaks, but let’s talk more about the schemes. According to the developer, these schemes are “ways on how to format and bind the various filesystems. You can chose how you want to format the partitions (data,dbdata and cache), whether you want to use an extra loop device or not, and whether you want to bind some directories from /data to /dbdata.” In other words, you can make your own combination of formats and other partitions to your own needs.

Everything is explained much more in the thread though, so it’s worth checking it out if you want to know more. Please bear in mind that this is an alpha build, so there may be some unstable behavior and bugs. If you’re new to all of this, we highly recommend to first read as much as possible before flashing any kernels and ROMs to your phone.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
