Default [modification] Speed up your Rise while improving battery life at the same time

So, you paid a buck and a half for some app to seed /dev/random because $FOO and can't admit you're experiencing confirmation bias? No problem.

Edit /system/lib/egl/egl.cfg and remove only the line "0 0 android" from it. Save. Reboot.

You can pretend it was the $1.50 magic app if you want to.

What it does: Disable default CPU rendering in effect by only leaving GPU rendering as an option. Our GPU is actually pretty decent but it's not used to the fullest by default. But moreover, by offloading the rendering to the GPU where it belongs it frees up processor time, making the whole phone itself effectively faster and more responsive because that freed processor time can be put toward your apps!

I played a couple rounds of Speedx 3D and several levels of Angry Birds Rio and lost a whopping 1% of battery in that whole time. Additionally they both played much smoother, beyond just the interface. Previously simply checking email made the battery go down that far.

We've all concluded the Rise isn't very good about battery life, and compared to some it probably isn't. We've also concluded that it's on the low end, and again compared to some... But with this it doesn't appear to be as bad as we thought, the hardware is solid but the software config just kinda sucks.

Faster more responsive interface AND faster phone AND better battery life, with no incantations or dead chickens? What are you waiting for get editing!

Source is XDA, there are dozens of threads about it and as far as I can tell they all reference each other in an infinite loop so I'm not sure which to credit! Some contain BS information about build.prop too, telling you to add CM-specific entries to stock roms... derp.

This should also work for the Hydro but I don't have one to test. They're basically the same under the hood though.


Edit: You will need to make sure the permissions of egl.cfg stay the same as before, the permissions should look like "rw-r--r--", either use your root file browser to set it or the shell command to do it is "chmod 644 egl.cfg"

Another way to speed things up:

Edit /system/build.prop to add the following:

Quote:
dalvik.vm.dexopt-flags=v=n,o=a,u=y
Tip: don't waste time with dalvik.vm.execution-mode because it's pointless, in 4.0+ JIT is on by default.

That's not quite enough though, now you need to open a terminal and do this:

Quote:
su
cd /data/dalvik-cache
rm *
After that reboot your phone. Startup will take longer because the Dalvik cache will be rebuilt, this time according to the flags you had just added in build.prop in the beginning. After that you should notice it's a bit snappier. It won't be like night and day but it's noticeable.

That's one of the first things I do on a CM based rom, force gpu rendering. Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind what I posted, it was my faulty way of modifying the egl.cfg what caused my phone to lag and go crazy. Turns out that the permissions of the egl.cfg file were messed up and that caused my phone's behavior.

So it turns out that I did the modification of the egl.cfg file properly and it does work, I can clearly tell that my performance has been increased, draw something doesn't lag anymore for me. I am actually impressed because this is the first time that a tweak works for me.

So just an FYI, this did not worked for me, and needless to say it did the opposite decreasing the performance of my phone greatly.
Whatever you do, make sure you don't tell us what you actually did. Better you stay upset than accomplish the original goal.

Part of the problem i've seen with this phone, is that whenever changes are made in/to /system, the phone starts flipping out for a reboot or two.

lol, my not so subtle hint was to say what happened so it can be fixed. Something's screwy, because these two things I posted do work. If it didn't then I'd like to figure out why and make your device fast too.

Some Android devices flip their shit if /system isn't set back to read only before rebooting.

Well, what I did first was to make a copy of the egl.cfg into my sd card, then I erased the "0 0 android", saved, deleted my original egl.cfg that was on my /egl/ folder and pasted the modified egl.cfg from my sd card into the /egl/ folder (I did all this because it wouldn't let me edit the egl.cfg file right away)
Then I restarted my phone and it was lagging like hell, after noticing that the lag wouldn't go away and seeing that my settings wasn't working I proceeded to add the "0 0 android" line back to my egl.cfg file. I restarted my phone once again, with the egl.cfg file fixed, but everything is still the same, my settings are not working and the phone is lagging.
Thanks for your help

EDIT: I think I got it, I just noticed that the permissions were changed, luckily I remember how the permissions were arranged so I am working on it right now

EDIT 2: Yep, that was the problem, my phone is back to normal now. The permissions must have got changed when I copied the file over to my sd card

Yep, sdcard is fat32 so permissions get lost. Try the edit again now with the permissions set.

Yeah I did and my it really works, I can see the difference and I have a lot less lag in games and apps, I already edited my post above so I don't mislead people.

Glad to help.

I'm going to edit the OP to include a note about permissions, I really should have done that in the first place anyway.

Curious... is doing this different from the 'Force GPU Rendering' option that can be accessed by going to Settings > Developer options ?

That option is for apps only, this is for everything. Not sure if there's any effective difference, but checking the box didn't have as much impact as this did for me.

1.024 GHz max
245 MHz min
Conservative governor
noop scheduler

The governor is the only change, it works like Ondemand (default) but opposite. Ondemand will jump right to max when under load and step down to min when idle. Conservative steps up to max under load and drops right to min when idle. Conservative should be better on battery and it's unlikely you'll really notice any speed changes.

I'd prefer the deadline scheduler, but Kyocera didn't build it in so it's not available right now.

Thanks, man. These both seem to work excellently for me.


EDIT: IF I may, what does the Dalvik adjustment do?

EDIT 2: The Google is strong with this one. Answered my question, I did.

V = Verify, n = none, so its not verifying.
O = Optimize all
U = send to unprocessor, recommended on single-core devices.

hi. thanks for your great insight. i've done the first tweak and works great, now i need to make sure i did the second tweak right lol.

after i type "rm *" and press enter/execute inside terminal, the prompt moves to the next line & nothing happens.

is this how it went for you? I reboot phone and it does take slower to boot up since it was updating the apps.

Yep, that's how it works. Should only take a long time to reboot once.

Just came here to second the fact that these tweaks also work great for the Hydro! TY to you all and whomever else contributed to these epic tweaks. You're great!

I was a few days away from returning this phone before rooting it.

edit: also, I bootlooped my phone a couple of days ago and expected to have to re-enter these commands. However, it seems that these are permanent modifications so long as your permissions remain! Awesomeness!

That they are, it's a system mod so only an upgrade or full factory restore (meaning the factory does it) could remove it without you doing it. There was some question as to whether these and other changes breaks the OTA updates, which appeared to be some weird form of binary diff, not sure if that was ever determined to be the case.

Honestly, I would recommend seeking help from someone in person to do it for you in that case. Just to be safer.

Sounds like some good stuff fellas! I will have to recommend my roommate letting me do these tweaks to his phone if he wants me to root and tweak it for him... too bad there are no devs wanting to port or kang a ROM to this phone for you guys... That is the main reason why before buying a phone now a days... if it isn't very popular or having a lot of potential for being one... I just won't buy it... because I am definitely into getting the best bang for my buck on a device...

Maybe someone could take these tweaks and make a fast one click deal for the newbies? Just saying...

Go easy on the poster. I realize it seems long winded and full of some grammatical errors, but sometimes that's necessary! (The long winded part, that is. I personally hate tl;dr freaks. )

Basically, he (or she's) saying that if you use the particular app presented, it's okay to use the one touch optimization option, but with the Kernel Tweak left UNCHECKED.

Does that help you out?

I hear you. I can tell you from personal experience that doing Kernel Tweaks on this phone (and perhaps similar Kyocera models like my Event... or any phone without a custom ROM for that matter) will most likely brick it. If you look at what kritter888 checked on the app, those are all system tweaks. They don't touch the kernel at all, as far as I can tell.

If anyone else with more knowledge about this would chime in, a lot of us would highly appreciate any meaningful input. I'm sort of on the fence about applying these tweaks to my Kyocera Event. Anyone?
