    Nothing visual or option wise, as I see it.It does seem to load up quicker & be a bit more responsive to input. Downloads seem to be smoother & quicker as well,but,all of this can vary from each individuals phone & data signal strength.

    Has anyone else installed Aces Cribbage on their Ascend? Is so, did it work? When I run it on mine, I just get a black screen and nothing else.

    I just installed it and it will display... but it flickers alot... I'm OC@710mhz I'm betting it needs a faster processor and a seperate GPU

    EDIT... dropped cpu back to 600mhz, and it still ran the same way... so I'm gonna say seperate GPU android needed...

    It won't run on my Huawei at all, just the blank screen. Oh well. I have Cribbage Pro which does just fine.

    I do have a huawei ascend and I don't use a battery saving app because it causes the phone to freeze for a second or two. I use android assistance(17 features) for my battery monitoring, but the android assistance(17 features) helps out more than just monitoring the battery. Check out android assitance(17 features). It might help you out.

    They all suck to be honest.That one app will waste more battery life trying to kill apps and services that will restart on their own then the apps and services running on their own.

    I've always had good luck with Juice Defender, but not everyone has.

    I feel the same about battery savers, they use more then save.

    Searched this in the android forum and did not find it...

    This is a file mod, not an app, but I think it still belongs here... if not please move it to the proper forum... Thanks...

    I did this to my M860 and it worked like a dream!! I edited the gps.conf file from my phone, I did not download it from the provided link that is below...

    Here is what is contained in mine... it does not contain as much data as the one provided in the quoted post below, but it was from my phone and all that needed editing was at the top...

    These days, the only apps I really use for flashing are CWM (Bootstrap on the X2) and AppExtractor. ROM Toolbox is truly cool, too, but I don't need it. As far as I'm concerned, those 3, along with rooting apps, are the greatest things since sliced bread.

    I'll be serious now. What are some apps that look cool that also run smooth? I know UberMusic is a good one.

    It is a black market with lots of pirated apps, which we don't recommend using due to possibilities of getting infected with malware, as well as cheating devs out of their hard earned money.
