    Any ideas to make my device efficent/faster at the same time.

    My current mods include:
    Apex 2.0, brightness all the way down, hard buttons lights off, extended batt, deleted non used daily apps, undervolted, beautiful wiidgets updates eveey hr, use wifi when i can, and i do a reboot every few days.

    How do i change gmails fetch schedule?
    Also how do i make gmail show pics in email by default?

    Any other ideas for better batt life or is this as good as it gets?
    Thanks!

    I used the imoseyon patch and it seemed to help my battery life.

    Does this work similar to the battery calibrator on the market?

    I used it too. That's why I was asking if this is different in some way. Maybe more efficient?

    Gmail doesn't fetch. Mail gets pushed, which happens close to immediately and is the most efficient way to get your email since no communication happens until you actually need it.

    The imoseyon patch doesn't recalibrate the battery. It changes some of the attributes such as swap file attributes, minimum memory free, etc. Click the link I posted and scroll down to read some of the information (or Google Imoseyon).

    It does help a little bit, just don't expect drastic improvement.

    I flashed this and checked terminal emulator to verify the tweaks and this is what I get,

    Minfree tweaks are not enabled!
    expr: syntax error
    Sysct1 tweaks are not enabled!
    crond is not enabled!
    ---
    ash: 4 unknown operand
    Everything is good!

    Can someone clarify this for me? I just want to be sure this is normal or not.

    Remove busybox that P3 included in /system/bin if it's there.

    Had the same problem and found that in the comments thread for imoseyon and it worked for me.

    Yup, Imoseyon tweaks comes with it's own busybox compiled by Imoseyon.

    That did it. Thanks LaZeR. Now to let it run for a few days and see what difference it makes. Will it be necessary to remove the battery calibrator now? Also, how the hell do i turn terminal emulator off? This is my first time using it.....lol

    Will do. I switched back to using ADW with the blue ADW theme in an attempt to increase performance. SPB shell 3d is nice but ADW has some nice themes.....:D

    I like the widgets. They are really cool but they don't have enough of them. And of course the 3d environment was a nice touch.

    Not necessary to remove the battery calibrator, it's a completely different thing than the imoseyon tweak.

    I just use Menu/ Reset Term to turn the terminal emulator off.
