Samsung Galaxy S :: How To Root To Make Phone Faster?
Aug 20, 2010
I am new to Android and rooting. I have a Galaxy S and love it! I didn't even know what rooting was. I just came across it after looking for ways to make my phone faster. After a while I realized my phone speed slowed down and was looking for the reason behind it. That's when I learned rooting is the answer. So I used the One Click method and everything is fine so far.
My Kernel is 2.6.29 root@SE-S602 #2 and Baseband is XXJF3 (2.1). So I went into my apps and saw the superuser permission app. But it doesn'thttp://android.bigresource.com/add/add.php work! It is just a blacked out screen. So I am not sure where to go from here. I have tried searching for an answer but couldn't find one, just guides how to root. How to make my phone faster from this point? I get confused with all these ROM things! Which is the best ROM? MoDaCo? Is there a Froyo version of it?
i have a 3-week old Galaxy S and i'm loving it. but i noticed that it seems to be "slower" in some ways (compared to the iPhone 4) in the way it open & closes an app, the way it loads an app sometimes, the way it animates in going back to previous screens or menus and in general really. don't get me wrong it's quick but having a 1GHz processor i'm kinda left feeling and wanting.
I have an unrooted motorola droid. I am considering rooting but my question to you is will rooting my phone give me the ability to make it faster? I see people talking about "overclocking" help me understand how this works. All my friends who have "jailbroken" their iphones have made their phones noticeably slower and laggier. I wont root my droid if this is the same case.
OK so i got this application because it says it can make phone faster or make it save battery, i dont know what settings to have it at or what presets for sleep/wake, etc. if someone can help me as to what settings it would help alot. currently its running at 800max and 66 min.
I have a HTC wildfire phone and even though i do enjoy it i find it to be very very slow and i have tried multiple things such as keeping my text messages to a maximum of 20 before deleting. Trying to delete unnesesary apps and junk off my phone. But it still runs slow, so i have joined this android forum seeking help. I can purchase a new phone an iphone 4 or HTC desire but i like my HTC wildfire and i enjoy the android operating system, the Wildfire's camera is amazing and the only thing i want to be able to do is make it faster. Will upgrading my SD card make the phone run faster?
now froyo has been released in the uk to most phones it was suppose to be a faster rom but its works and runs the same froyo they released last month and then got pulled by samsung..i did the kies reg hack last month to get it and can not see any diffrence
so i rooted my phone with oneclick lag fix. and it was fine and i installed the 3 apps set cpu etc etc...then when my phone sleeps for a while it wont wake up...i read around through it was setcpu, so i uninstalled that...and it happens again...can anyone help? asfor now im unrooted the phone with the unroot function in the OCLF
I just got the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate. Seems like a nice phone. Every phone I've had in the past (Nokia, Sony, etc...) has always allowed me to hide my number so that the call display on the receiver's phone shows my call as 'private'. This is useful for when you don't want certain people to have your number when you call. Is there a way to do this on the Galaxy S? I couldn't seem to find any setting how.
I downloaded the oclf, rooted and its all working nicely. Tested on quadrant and got this big sexy bar right at the top. Phone seems a little faster for sure. But if u use quadrant advanced u can see that CPU speed isn't really changing much if at all. Its i/o that is increasing and giving us these huge scores. Whatever that is. So are there further steps I can take to speed up my phone.
Is oclf actually overclocking my phone or just giving it another file system which speeds up processing slightly? I also use launcherpro which seems to help a bit for home screen navigating and such. But I am looking for a real noticeable boost. I know some of the ROMs out there are pretty fast as well but I am a little reluctant to remodel my phone much more with froyo supposedly on the horizon.
Buyed a samsung galaxy s a couple days ago and had no peoblems woth it except today noticed then when somebody calls me rhe phone rings quietly at first and then rongs normal, the sound gradualy increases from small volume to gighter , how can i .make it ring loudly from the start ?
I've had the phone for about 1.5 months now. I have about 70 or so apps. The phone is noticeably slow and lags a lot. Text messaging app crashes from time to time and I have to force close and loose all the texts. Should I upgrade the SD card? I've been reading about rooting the phone and about ROMs but I dont fully comprehend it.
Like every one here I want my phone to operate at it's optimal speed. But I really don't know what makes this phone fast. Why are there different quadrant scores on stock phones? Does running certain programs slow this phone down? I know that without rooting the phone the processer can't be over clocked, and when I had 2.1 rooted I had SetCPU installed, and you didn't have the ability to overclock the phone anyway. I guess I don't understand why someone reports a Quadrant score of 1450, and someone running the same platform reports 1350. Not that I think you would know the difference between the two.
I Got Open Home, and GDE. Used those for a while. and I like those. Sense is meh... But lately i've been noticing a lot of lag as well. I can barely finish a text without my phone lagging... >.< I would like to speed it up.... But I would also like to keep my warranty intact, I've seen some options. Updating to the Leak 2.1 v3 or Rooting. of these two I would prefer rooting... I like options lol like i said. and 2.1 v3 traps you on 2.1 v3 forever (as of now >.< )
Both of which seem to void warranty...... So my question Is... What should i do with my phone?? Is it worth it to say F*ck the warranty and root? is there something (BESIDES TASK KILLER!!!) that i can install to make the ENTIRE phone run faster? EDIT: OH!!! and i forgot. One of my big fears in rooting is the set up process after the root. Like will I have to call some Verizon number and re activate my phone like they did when i first got it??
I have done a simple game where I draw on a View and use invalidate() to force onDraw to be called. This however doesn't seem to scale at all since even for this little game it is quite slow. So what is the solution, to use openGL? that is what all games should? and then I should use frames rather than redrawing?
heres a method that I found at xda to add some more speed for the X10. Install an app called minfreemanager. Then change the last 3 values to 150, 200, and 250. Then save and reboot your phone. you should see an increase.
i just switched from my Devour To the Droid X. AMAZING CHOICE this phone is amazing but i see people with there linpack and quadrant scores and thats alot better then mine i have mine Over Clocked and Rooted is there any way to speed it up? Also i did install froyo leak but it didnt let me use my camera and the market not working right. I just went back to my original 2.1 with the sbf Sadly the market still isent working right.
The Android emulator is a bit sluggish. For some devices, like the Motorola Droid and the Nexus One, the app runs faster in the actual device than the emulator. This is a problem when testing games and visual effects.
How do you make the emulator run as fast as possible? I've been toying with its parameters but haven't found a configuration that shows a noticeable improvement yet.
In my android app i need to get 50,000 database entry(text) and compare them with a value when the activity started(in onCreate()).I am doing this with the simplest way : i get the whole table from db to a cursor.However this way is too laggy.Are there any other way to do it more effective?The app is "scrabble solver" that is why i am not using WHERE close in my query (Take the whole data annd compare it with combination of the input letters).At first i was using a big table which contains whole possible words.Now i am using 26 tables.This reduced the lag and i am making database call on a thread that solved a lot problems too.It is still little bit laggy but much better.

I've had an SGS for about 10 days now and I really do like it, but the battery thingy really kills the whole eperience :S I remember before I bought this phone I made a thread about the battery life and everyone said that I could easily fix it.
So how do I make my SGS not use 90% of my battery life?
PS. Got the brightness at 0 and the sound volume at 0 (Only on vibration atm)
i know you all gona say that i should have used forum search which actually i did and i still cant find the answer of how to root (most resent or best methods). today i decided to go the way most of you went and root my galaxy so i could enjoy some of the features or customise the devise for it to be either faster or better somehow (particularly im interested in fixing HW acceleration of openGL). but my main problem is still that ADB doesnt show my device in the devices list after adb_devices command... i think ive tried everything: reinstalling drivers and NPS, SDK 1.5 r1 putting in debbuging, restarting phone even using USBdeview soft to uninstall all android and samsung drivers and try to make it work but still nothing... all day wasted, many forums read, downloaded KAM187s drivers and still nothing im on H8 firmware how to make adb recognise my phone and list it) plus i want some info on how to push this openGL fix on my phone after i root it (if ever) by the way tried on Windows 7 and XP sorry for making a new thread but i think im not the only one whose phone is not listed by adb as i read it on other forums.
When connecting my Galaxy-S to the Samsung Kies software, my telephone shows up with an incorrect telephone number. I did change the sim-card (and subsequent number) since first using it, but I never logged intio Kies with the old sim-card.The phone is rooted.How do I get Kies (or my Samsung phone) to show my current telephone number?In the phone properties (Menu, Settings, About, Status) the same wrong number is shown.When calling, the receiver sees the correct telephone number. So the issue is not operator related but telephone related.
I'm new to android. and thinking to root my Samsung galaxy y 2.3.6. so when I'm searching over internet there are so many update.zip files, then where can I find reliable one that is 100% compatible for sgy. does every update.zip file differs from other? and what are the precautions to avoid bricking?does one click method works fine? I don't like to have any custom Rom but just simply want to root my phone.
