You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

z4mod Lagfix – An Alternative to OCLF
So, most Samsung device owners may have tried out the One-Click-Lag-Fix, and now here is another alternative. XDA forum member RyanZA has come up with the alternative z4mod Lag Fix.
