Default How to disable media scanner( Increase boot time )

*Must Be Rooted*

Download an app named rescan media root from the market. This allows you to disable media scan which takes forever to scan big sd cards like mine from boot and when u take new pics etc... There is a version for nonroot users but I did not test it nor do I take any credit for the app. Just a good find.

Good find, but if you turn off media scanner and you have apps installed on your sd card, next time you reboot the phone you won't be able to run those apps...they won't even appear on your apps menu and their icons won't come up on your home screen either. What size is your card? Mine's 16gb and the boot is a little bit slow but not too terrible.

Everytime I take a picture and such the media scanner slows down the phone and we have almost 2gb of internal storage so its no need for apps to sd when we have root and titanium Backup, space is not a need for me..........

Ahhhh, gentlemen! check the speed of your SD cards. No all cards are created equal.

Beware of cheapos and ebay deals (if its too good to be true it usually is) I myself use a high speed card for this particular reason.
