    Very interesting, LoBatt!

    Thank you for sharing :).

    (the XDA thead is unavailable ATM 'cause of system maintenance--can't wait to read the other details there)

    edit: it's back now...reading! :)

    Just seat of the pants "feel." There's been some discussion whether there is a "placebo effect" caused by simply decreasing animation transitions but I think Chrome is definitely faster. Google Maps on the way home today felt faster with new map tiles, screen updates, etc. Google Now launches faster too.

    So I flashed this, and at first it seemed a little quicker, but after awhile of playing with it, nothing seems too much quicker. Maybe just placebo? I'm on Xenon 1.5 btw

    Okay, just got done reading (or scanning / skimming) all 82 pages of that thread on XDA :eek:.

    Yeah, don't bother...there's only about 100 useful posts in there...although there are some very savvy folks in there trying to dissect if this is real or placebo.

    Of note: OP hasn't posted since 11/21 ??? (very curious).

    Here's a few posts that I also found noteworthy:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36234571&postcount=444

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36235699&postcount=462

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36237428&postcount=497

    Best post of all :)p):

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=36252798&postcount=740

    So, I'm guessing it does have some effect / impact on some people's devices--just not everyone's. There probably is a cost (battery) but no one has adequately measured it yet.

    No one has reported any "bad" things happening as a result of using this (or other similar methods described).

    Anyway, thanks again for bringing this to our attention. I learned a lot of other interesting things tonight in that thread.

    Cheers!

    Mods: Maybe this should be in the general forum? Root is required but it's not specific to the Verizon Gnex.

    Yeah, that's a good point, LoBatt, but I'm also thinking that since it's not device-specific either, it probably belongs in the Android Lounge...

    Hang on while I move us...:)

    Can we keep it in the Gnex general forum? People are reporting different effects on different devices. This could be a discussion of the effect specifically on the Galaxy Nexus.

    Well, I think that since it involves root it wouldn't be appropriate to place in the main GNex area.

    You could update the OP to say this is a discussion about how this would work specifically for the VZW GNex and it would be okay to move it back to the VZW GNex ATR area...unfortunately, there's no common ATR area for things like this.

    Let me know what you think :).

    What is interesting to me are the number of people saying that they have not been able to replicate the improvements they have seen using seeder by scaling/locking the CPU. Nor does there seem to be a significant battery hit.
