z4mod Lagfix – An Alternative to OCLF

Other differences include using /etc/fstab for filesystem mounting as well as keeping the convert scripts outside of the kernel (compared to other lagfixes which are kernels compiled from GPL source for specific devices and hence lose out on bug fixes specific to later Samsung kernels).
The app should work across all Samsung devices without changes but still requires testing for different devices, hence you must check the compatibility table in the thread.
For more information and to download the apk, head on over to the application thread.
