    Yeah seriously. And to think, Google could have packaged this from the very beginning. Java man. I swear. Some things are good about it, some other things really hamstringing us.

    Haha, right. I can't wait.

    I don't think so. This Dalvik is a fairly new release. But man, how sweet would it be if we found out that the reason 2.1 was being held up was because they had to work the deal with Myriad on incorporating Dalvik Turbo. I'm drooling just thinking about it. :p

    It is a new release, but you can't believe that this tweaking is novel! I don't think cutting edge finds itself in phones all the time. I'm sure someone will get their hands on a version and we'll be able to port it. But until then, it's probably a pipe dream to think it'll be in the 2.1 release. But hey, Motorola can create a huge coup if they package it in their 2.1 release. That'll be one way to tell Google/HTC to suck it!

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    I know you want it, as we all do. But I don't think it happening any time soon. They have clearly stated that Dalvik Turbo isn't going to be contributed to the Android trunk. They intend to develop relationships with hardware and carrier partners to put Turbo on their phones. This disturbs the crap out of me. I hope there is a change of heart.

    The video from my first post is a benchmark video comparing two phones ... one with the Dalvik Turbo installed, and a stock Android phone. The different is incredible.

    In layman's terms...

    There are several ways to increase the overall speed and/or performance of our DROID. Probably the Top 2 on the list would be a better/faster "Kernel", and an optimized "Dalvik Virtual Machine". See the pic below.

    The kernel is the code that runs between the hardware and the core of the operating system. We are currently over-clocking the DROID with edited kernels that tell the cpu to run faster. That's the simplest way to get a kernel to improve overall speed, but certainly not the "best" or "safest" way.

    The Dalvik engine (or Dalvik Virtual Machine) is the software that basically links the core of the operating system to your applications. Optimize this, and your whole DROID becomes a heck of a lot zippier.

    However, it sounds like (at least I've read speculation anyways) this is roughly the same thing at a glance as JIT. So more likely we will see Google's JIT move from alpha to beta someday and then Dalvik turbo would be kinda useless, no?

    All I know is that we need to get that and/or JIT stable on our Droid's and ASAP! ... At least let's get JIT stable and on it! We have to be close, right? :cool:

    Competition is always good for the consumer.

    Google, work on your JIT

    Myriad work on this

    ;)
