I always knew this phone had some pretty good hardware, I always wondered why it felt so sluggish though. I feel like the second core is off most of the time though. I used kernel tuner and changed the scheduler to deadline and turned cpu1 on, I left the governor as is. You guys might wanna try it. Swype for me is now lag free, and opening up gallery is buttery now. I can't wait for this custom kernel to be released and see what this phone can really do! ^ original post ^ setting cpu1 on and changing scheduler Remember, you need to be rooted! As for setting the scheduler, I made an init.d script with these two lines: [HIGH]echo "scheduler-name" > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler; echo "scheduler-name" > /sys/block/mmcblk1/queue/scheduler;[/HIGH] This sets the scheduler both for internal memory and the sdcard. As for which scheduler you should use, refer to this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=23616564&postcount=4 :I went with deadline, but it's all personal preference.
