So I've been battling with the famous "redraw" problem on Android OS. Maybe I'm a little impatient but I hate having to wait 5 secs for my home screen to redraw every time I get out of a "heavy" app. I thought It was a TouchWiz problem but it turns out it's Android's bad coding. I've been modding the phone and trying a lot of stuff and it seems I might be getting there. I know I'm not alone with this problem and I promise that as soon as I find out a REAL solution to the problem I will post it here.


So far I've installed mods and none of them have worked.


I'm modding the build.prop file via Terminal ADB and it seems to be working, I will continue to post more about this when I find a working solution.


I've read that the phone needs to LOCK the Home App to it's memory so it doesn't redraw, but I haven't been able to do this just yet.


If you're also suffering from slow redraw post below your experience so we can all work together towards improving the OS performance.


Cheers! :angel:

Hey, it's me again. I've been trying a lot of mods on the phone. Which lead to a really unstable phone, bootloops, and almost every problem in the book, but hey that's the price you have to pay for playing around with Android and I gotta say I love every little bit of it, I enjoy every bit of stress of ending up with a boot loop, to messing around the build.prop file and then messing up the system
It's great.


After a LOT of messing around and a lot of boot loops, I finally got the result I was looking for, and I'm gonna explain everything I did to the phone.


For the SpeedBoost you'll need :


- Xposed Framework


- BusyBox


- Init.d support


- App Settings (from Xposed Framework)


- Greenify (Play Store + Xposed Module)


- Seeder 2.0


- Init.d Toggler (if you don't have Init.d support)


and that's it!


WARNING: I can not be held responsible for anything that happens to your phone, remember to do a full ROM backup before messing around with ANYTHING. You can do a complete ROM backup with MTK Droid Tools or with ROM Manager (provided you have installed a CWM Recovery on your device)*


*there's a thread in here explaning how to install a CWM Recovery on your device*


Okay let's begin:


First things first


I guess this doesn't have to be stated but you NEED to have a ROOTED phone, if it's not rooted then you're not gonna be able to do any of the steps.


2. INSTALLING XPOSED FRAMEWORK


DOWNLOAD THE APK: http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk


For the framework:


Download the Xposed Installer APK and install it


Launch the Xposed Installer, go to the "Framework" section and click on "Install/Update"


In case you get a Segmentation Fault error, please install this additional app (not needed if the installation worked fine).


Reboot


Done!


3. INSTALL APP SETTINGS MODULE FOR XPOSED FRAMEWORK


Inside the Xposed App, go the the Downloads section and look for App Settings.


Download the latest version


Go to the Modules section and activate the App Settings Module


Reboot


4. GREENIFY


Go to the Google Play Store and look for the GREENIFY APP.


Download and Install


Go to the Xposed App again, go to the modules section and activate the Greenify Module.


Reboot


5. Init.d Toggler + BusyBox


Go to the Google Play Store and look for BusyBox


Download and Install


Open the BusyBox App


And Select Install


Reboot


Go to the Google Play Store and look for Init.d Toggler App


Download and Install


Open App


Push "Enable Init.d"


Reboot


7. Seeder 2.0


Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1666675&d=1358857894


Download and Install


Don't do anything with the app yet.


8. CONGRATULATIONS you've got everything you need install but nothing is running, I know it was a long way to install everything but it WILL be worth it.


9. ACTIVATING EVERYTHING.


1. Decide what your main launcher will be


2. Go to App Settings and look for your launcher


3. Select it and "turn on" settings for the app


4. Look for the option "Resident" , check it and click save.


5. The launcher will redraw


6. Go to the Greenify app and select all apps you don't use regularly and put them on hibernation mode (follow on screen instructions) You should go back to "Greenify" apps every once in a while so they don't chew up on your RAM.


7. Go to the Seeder App


8. Turn the script on


9. Check all boxes and select the Aggressive performance profile.


10. Go to your App Manager and look for any other launcher running, and stop them.


11. YOU ARE DONE!


Congrats! You've got everything up and running and your device should feel a lot smoother + faster.


It took me a while to find this "mod" but it's really worth it.


If you found this usefull please hit the thanks button!



Please post your experience and enjoy your brand new Speedy Android.


R.P.


*I'd stay away from any CPU Overclocking app because it will make your CPU unstable + with this config you won't need any overcloking.


CHEERS!

Wow what an amazing guide ! I´ll take a look at it tomorrow because it´s already late now.


but just to the last sentence, overclocking is not possible due to the lack of custom kernels.


But you can use set cpu , or nothrillscpu to set your cpu to max and shut off downscaling. But needs alot of battery

i have something to add, check out performance profile in xposed. its a very good app that you can set priorities in every app in foreground and background and at the same time set the cpu speed and governor per app basis
