2100 with new setup will post pic in a little bit
After you shop it up a bit?
Which setup would that be?
Looks like I'm gonna have to post a video later to shut your ******ed ass up
Running stock 2.1 firmware (rooted, Busybox 1.17.1), Touchwiz interface... *BUT* utilizing the simple lag fix batch file fix from XDA Developers Galaxy i9000 forums (located here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=749495 )
1899 Quadrant Score. Read the original thread for the ups/downs to this lag fix (you lose 1GB of "/data" storage for an EXT2 cache essentially) , but it's super easy to do.
Note: others are getting even higher Quadrant benchmark scores, but those people probably did more tweaks than lazy me. I just ran a .bat file and ate potato chips...mmm...tasty potato chips!
yup exactly the same setup im using too, but im getting 2100+ on quadrant, and got a video uploading to prove it.
EDIT: While I wait for the video to process on youtube, enjoy
Update for the non believers.....
A Fresh Reboot....and now I'm out of potato chips!
Elaborate as to how to get that score and what benefits you see as opposed to stock.
YouTube - ‪2100 on Quadrant - Samsung Vibrant - Android 2.1‬‎
see my post a few spots up where I link to the XDA Developer Forum Thread in regards to the lag fix. It's literally as simple as running a .bat file.
The lag fix uses a 1GB EXT2 virtual partition within the phone's existing 2gb of internal RFS storage for caching data and dalvik-cache. You do lose 1GB of app storage with this "fix", but to be quite honest our phones have a ridiculously huge amount of app storage space relative to other Android OS phone. I'm on my 7th page of apps in the Twiz app drawer and probably have enough app storage to double that amount still.
The benefits are less apparent than the monstrous increase in Quadrant benchmark score would indicate, but the phone is overall far smoother with no home screen, app drawer, or app launch lag whatsoever now.
It's easy to do, and just as easy to undo. Batch files for a simple one-click do/un-do are included in the XDA Dev post I linked. Though it is a painfully simple fix for the lag issues, PLEASE be sure to read the entire OP post and the thread in total before you do this, just to avoid any gotchas you may encounter if you have done any other mods to your phone.
I myself am basically stock, merely rooted. Best of luck!
love how i/o part is instant mine hangs there for a while especially in 3/4 I get 890 - 895 stock
So your score just score by three hundred for no reason? Why is yours so much higher? How high will this score get with froyo in your opinion? 3,000+?
After running the benchmark numerous times I'm averaging around the high ~1900 range once I'm long past a fresh boot and have been launching numerous apps. I would assume that as the phone task manager has to juggle background tasks benchmarks would tend to be lower than a fresh boot where no 3rd party apps were yet running.
That's merely the nature of benchmarking. I did enough of that over the years as a journalist with PC tech sites to know there is often (nearly always) a difference between a set standard bench environment, and just running a benchmark whenever you feel like it. The latter is always slower.
I would guess that Froyo will gain us a good bit more ground owing to the JIT compiler, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for a 3000+ score just yet. This little lag-fix is basically getting rid of a pseudo-intentional slowdown native to Samsung devices and their nasty habit of using RFS file-system (at least as I understand the situation...correct me if I am mistaken). From what I know about scores commonly gained from the Droid X and The Nexus1 running 2.2, these phones aren't suffering from the I/O bottleneck we are. So I think perhaps this little fix is slightly-better-than-leveling the playing field relative to those devices. Given that likelihood I do believe we have a few hundred more points of headroom to gain in this benchmark suite once we have a proper factory retail Froyo rom.
My two cents...
Have you tried running PSX emulator before and after? I wonder how much it would help that.
I've ran a few games (Kwaak3, Combat Operations Sandstorm, various SNES roms) and haven't noticed anything major apart from faster app starting and ending. Most games and emulators are going to be processor-bound (given whatever efficiency or lack thereof exists within it's interpreter), and not I/O bound, so this doesn't surprise me.
Samsung Captivate benchmarked with ext2 hack and 1.2 GHz overclock.
yup just about what I get with the new OC kernel on my Vibrant
This has to kill your battery life. I already get poor battery life.
No it doesn't kill your battery life. Please get your information straight before spreading false ones. Samsung is blowing everything else out of the water even before Froyo lol.
I am confused on how overclocking the processor wouldn't cause your battery life to be worse. It logically makes sense that the more power consumption the faster the battery dies.
2248 running One click lag fix. Was 916 prior to that.
I really think a class 4 is more than enough and that is only if you run a lot of ROM's. The avatar card that came with the phone isnt a rated class and it has an HD movie on it. If you are just doing apps and music, hec a class 2 is fine.
From what i understand, the speed of the class is write speed.
I havent got a Micro card yet but i want at least a 16 GB and a class 2. Ill get a class 4 if i can find one for the same price or if it isnt much more.
The copy of Avatar isn't in HD sadly. I was using a class 2 card and it was "more than enough" . As I had said if I was going for best possible score a class 6 would have been my best hope.
It's pointless now tho, since the new "fix" uses the internal storage which appears to be much faster.
I am running the lag fix. I am now getting 2250 on Quadrant. That is without a CPU overclock. Which is not even necessary since this phone is already so friggin fast.
wow, you guys are getting high scores.
