Want Faster Android On Your HD2? Data Successfully Moved To EXT Partition
Well, the beloved (and becoming) venerable HTC Leo (aka HD2) still has lots of fight left in it thanks to members developing on it left and right. Every single update to Android devices has gone, one way or another, through the HD2 as well. We have seen advancements of this WM native device excel in the field of Android like no other device (even native Android devices) have seen. In one of his latest roms, XDA member dorimanx has been able to take this on going development to the next step by being able to have data installed on an EXT partition. This has two main advantages: larger sized data partition and more speed as EXT is inherently faster for I/O purposes. As a result of this, the dev decided to run a few Quadrant tests to see how it compared to the previous versions of his rom and the scores with up to somewhere around the 3000 point mark!
It looks like the dev has temporarily pulled the latest nighty rom due to issues, but rest assured that fixes are on the way. Please try it out and leave feedback so that this can be further improved.
Now if you have Any EXT 2/3/4 and you have 250MB free on EXT! All DATA files will be moved from DATA to EXT and ROM will use it as usual!
What we get is much bigger DATA partition! no longer we have to suffer from 250mb only for non tmobile phones!
If you HAVE T-MOBILE phone with 768MB DATA! and it’s full! then please check that you have also 800MB free on EXT!

This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups. But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
