[ROOT] sEFix (lag reduction)

[ROOT] sEFix (lag reduction)


On some (older) versions of Android, the JVM (and other components) often read random data from the blocking /dev/random, which has a low entropy by default, causing that some processes block themselves waiting for new data generation with a greater entropy. On newer builds, this problem has been solved, yet depletion of the input entropy pool still seems to slow devices.

So this fix seems to reduce some lag in the Android OS (XDA thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1987032 )

However, the initial post makes some changes that are 'artificial' which probably affects battery duration, so I just created an app that applies a more natural method based on this post: ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=36093065#post36093065 )

It just modifies the system's wakeup threshold to update /dev/random values when the entropy is too low. And it's completely reversible :)

NOTE: To modify the threshold ROOT permissions are required.

Cyanogenmod This is probably the best app I've ever used. Works great with my Droid Razr Maxx. I swear my phone went from a Dual Core to a Quad Core. Very little to lag to none. As a matter fact, the app works so well that now I'm able to turn back on my screen animations. I give this app 10 stars. Great job on it and thanks a million times 2!!
