Verizon Droid Charge Tweak and Script Pack

The newest flagship devices feature some pretty impressive specs: quad-core processors, over a gig of RAM, 16-32 GB of storage, and HD screens. However, that doesn’t mean that development work has halted on older devices. As devices get older, devs find new and fun ways of keeping them  working well. For Verizon Droid Charge users, there is a tweak and mod pack to help make the phone seem fast again.

XDA Senior Member dSlice released a tweak and mod pack that adds some flair to the Charge. Some of the features include:

I have scoured the vast online community, that is the great XDA and have researched and tested various scripts(init.d) and tweaks(build.prop and gps.conf) to help our greatly handicapped Droid Charge somewhat “compete” with the big boys.

Dwitherell has kindly uploaded them to Tweaktools.

You may ask init.d? But we have a stock kernel that doesn’t support init.d… Thanks to this post and Dwitherell’s genius we have working init.d baked right into our ROM, yes that’s right baked in!

RENICE Tutorial

Renice operates on the principal that the lower the value of the process (the scale is from -20 to +19), the higher the priority the process has on CPU time. In other words, a process that is nice to others, is +19. One that isn’t so nice is at -20. In function then, a process that requires lots of immediate CPU time such as a launcher, benefits from running at a higher priority (thus as a negative on the niceness scale) than, say, Google Maps.

While some of the tweaks may have marginal utility, users are reporting success and increased performance. So if you have a Verizon Droid Charge and are looking for a little boost, this could be for you.
