    Hey guys, I stumbled upon something which may be of use to you all. Found it just wandering around XDA. It's a Seeder Entropy zip which many claim reduces the amount of lag on their device. I don't have my Marquee anymore so I'm unable to test it.
    Again this is not mine. I did not create it. I just found it and thought you guys might want to try it out. I can't imagine this effing your phone up but if it does I'm not responsible. If you're comfortable using Terminal Emulator you can check to see if it's working after flashing.

    Enjoy! Let me know if it works for you!

    Just adding this: after reading the whole thread, it seems like this may be a simpler solution (and better on battery life)

    To give my input, at first I thought I was a placebo effect, than I realized that apps that normally lag very much, had no lag. I first found this app when I was scouring the nexus 7 threads, I tried it on the 7 but to be honest this tab is a beast ( especially when oc'ed) so it had little to no effect. I then tried it on the marquee and to my amazement there is absolutely no lag where I have come accustomed to seeing it. Also I have this coupled with pimp my ROM with the only change being that I turned off vsync. So yes this does work. And it is much much simpler than messing around with all the internal settings and files. Not everyone wants to spend all day messing with files, they just want something to work, and this accomplishes just that.

    Thanks for your feedback K28! I'm glad this thing is working for you guys. I agree about not wanting to mess with too many settings. I just wanna flash a zip and be done with it. Anyway, glad you like it.

    Trust me, this app is only a placebo, I did a bunch of benchmark tests only too find out it makes no difference and that this quote below is true on some phones (happened on his Motion and my Optimus M):

    I have been running this on my marquee with CTMod 3.75 for the last to days and performance wise I haven't noticed much of a difference, but I have noticed that my phone seems to wake up and unlock faster.

    This is really making something, but on my marquee isn't anything good, whit seeder i got more noticeable lags, bot: the zip file and the apk, even lowers values on benchmarks.

    Maybe the pimp my rom teaks affect it, i dont know, but cant see anything good with seeder.

    That could be. I'm only using the scripts that come with CTMod with Zram enabled with 128mb compression on my Zram.

    Ok, so I haven't experienced Amy lag. But my phone has completely locked up a few times. Good thing I made a back up before I added that. Restored my backup and all is fine now. I'm not going to try this again until I do some more research.

    You use the zip file from the post or the apk from xda?
    The zipfile on that link is v3, there's a v6 version and apk 1.1, y think both are the same, the zip should be a more "direct effect" or something like that, and there's a uninstaller zip file too.

    i think here's everything to be a little more clear: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36252773&postcount=738

    Yeah, I used the zip. I have it uninstalled now via restoring my backup.

    Had it installed 24 hours and haven't experienced no issues. I can report better performance with some apps that were having some lag such as Gmail go launcher mega jump and others
