    Anyone tried it?
    Wish i hadnt. The reviews, even from s3 owners are good so i tried it even though i have zero lag.
    Ran a Quadrant and dropped about 1000 points so uninstalled.
    Now im still scoring less than the One X while o/clocked at 1.6ghz (quad core)
    Rebooted, wiped cache and devlik (probably spelled wrong) cache and still scoring in the 4k's (should be around 6+a half.
    Any idea what this apps done and how i can fix it?
    I know benchmarks dont matter much but that amount of a loss means somethings happened :(

    Phone was running beautifuly an hour ago with final Neat rom and Siyia..... :banghead:

    Usually these apps are useless. I would not suspect this one is any different

    Yeah it was just all the 5stars from s3 users sucked me in lol. I usualy trust fellow s3 users.
    Phones getn back to normal anyway. Ive no idea what it did but think its a root app so could have damaged anything

    The only app I have heard that actually improves speed within the OS is the app Seeder. Android goes through a random number generator for a lot of functions, but finding a random number that is 'Hanson's enough, is apparently difficult. So Android May go through 7 or 8 random number sequences before it finds one it likes and the function it is trying to do is allowed to happen. Seeder picks the first number generated, thus killing a lot of lag.
    Must be rooted for this though.

    Perseus kernel has its own implementation for "seeder". I'm unconvinced. Last time I checked, devs acknowledged it worked but no one knew why so for that reason, it didn't seem like a good idea

    So whats "Hensons" (in semi lamens terms). Im genuinely interested in this stuff.
    I dont actualy have any lag so would seeder make things faster (can only think of a couple of heavy apps like Go Dialer that could do with a kick up the bum)
    And if/when i uninstalled it, would everything be back to normal?

    neither Here nor There
    I think XDA actually issued a retraction saying Seeder didn't do anything after all. Placebo effect.

    Yeah its hard to imagine an app doing anything other than overclock.
    Lag Fix certainly screwed up my phone for a while even after uninstalling so i wouldnt recommend to anyone (especialy if your phones running beautifuly anyway)
