    OK, so maybe not the fastest, but just watch this video of my phone.

    N.B. I'm also running Live Wallapers.

    You can download LinPak from MarketPlace.

    LinPak Android Speed test benchmark

    and check your own score.

    My results are not a trick, there is a quick and easy way to speed up your Phone.

    The clue is, I've added a feature that will come as standard in Android 2.2.

    Enjoy the video, and I'll happily answer questions.

    Just downloaded this on my HTC desire and got 8, but seen others get 40 or so. On their site they also have the Samsung scoring 20.9! Such a wide range of scores that the app bust be sensitive to particular software setups as I can't believe the overall performance of the phone could vary by this magnitude

    You can see the full LinPak listings for each device here

    LinPak Results by device

    The defauly Galaxy Spica/Lite/Portal should get around 3.5 to 4 on Android 2.1

    I've just replaced 1 file on my phone, and jumped to 7.8.

    If you've got a Galaxy phone, download LinPak and post your results.

    What makes the Nexus One score so dramatic an improvement when running Froyo 2.2, is it's JIT (Just In Time) compiler.

    All I did was replace the libdvm.so file in /system/lib with one that implements JIT on the Spica.

    First of all, this is nothing new. Second, this is NOT the same JIT as in the 2.2 froyo. It's made by independent devs, not by google. Also, it's considered quite unstable, as many people reported reboots and fcs. Use it at your own risk. It might freeze your phone overnight, and your alarm clock wont wake you. In my opinion, arm11 optimized dalvikvm brings a nice improvement in speed, with very minimal risk so you should use only that without jit if you care about reliability.

    Stability problems are in early versions, as with everything. I had stability issues for a while, but after recent updates etc, stability has not been an issue. Some live wallpapers crashed. No big issues. I had to replace Calculator.apk, and update some lib files.

    The point is it, this process IS new. Especially if you haven't heard of it. It's an ongoing development. I am also using arm11 optimized dalvikvm, but I choose to also use JIT. No problems so far, and I likely push my Spica more than most.

    The point I think being made, although rather negatively is, any mod outside that reccommended by the manufacturer is done so at your own risk.

    So far, I am happy having used this mod, and will happily update for others to take advantage of, on further developments.

    I'm happy it works for you :) Many people report it does not work for them tho. And some of them were late from work etc, it can cause quite nasty real life situations. You should've mentioned in your post it's only for the brave :cool:

    @adbaby89 Use the zip from this thread JIT8-16

    I my attempts to get this working I had numerous freezes and hung bootups. I had to flash my firmware at least 4 - 5 times in getting this to work. Each time having to fix issues, and add/remove files from the flash firmware before moving on. I now have a fast and so far very stable and usable phone.

    This speed improvement is a combination of a few mods that exist for the Spica.

    No gimmick, no overclocking, just a software update. In this case system libraries.

    To install you will need a rooted phone. Once you have a rooted phone, it is much easier to install features. eg. JIT MOD, LiveWallpapers. Tethering etc. etc.

    To help root your phone, see this Samdroid Kitchen Mod thread for info creating a custom firmware. It also has info on how to apply the JIT MOD.

    After rooting and updating to kitchen mod, you will then need the JIT MOD zip. See this thread for info.

    ARM Optimised JITv8.12 MOD

    Becasue this mod replaces some system libraries, you will need to replace the Calculator.apk with this Calculator.zip

    And as devast quite rightly pointed out, you need to be brave to install this. Any mod you install you do so at your own risk. As this mod is still in development, you may experience problems.

    N.B. My experiences may be different from yours.

    Files that will be replaced, or added by the JITv8.12 MOD.

    /system/app
    Calculator.apk

    /system/lib
    libdvm.so
    libnativehelper.so

    /system/lib/egl
    egl.cfg
    libChunkAlloc.so
    libEGL_fimg.so
    libGLES_android.so
    libGLESv1_CM_fimg.so
    libGLESv2_fimg.so


    /system/lib/hw
    copybit.GT-I5700.so

    You can backup these files up with Android Commander.

    Disclaimer: Try this at your own risk, i won't be held responsible if anything happenst to your phone. Also, this voids your warranty, and you can not revert back to stock kernel(to get back your warranty) if you do not have an image of an official rom for your carrier that you can flash with odin.

    Imo only use arm11 optimized dalvikvm. JIT is way too unstable as for now, also there's a new version of it almost every day lol.
    Just a note it's only for 2.1. Assuming, that you have stock 2.1:
    Preparation:
    Starting from scratch, get the windows drivers to recognize your phone: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service unpack it, i think the swallowtail driver will be needed for us later, but im not sure. Get odin and the spica_jc3.ops file: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! and MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service . Next get the new kernel you'll be using: LK2.06.beta4 for original firmwares (Root etc) [10.06.2010] also, read the instructions there as well. You need to unzip this archive, and you'll get a .tar file you'll be using later. Now, go to SamdroidMod Kitchen v1.x.x All in One [EN] . You need to register there to use the kitchen. Select "without base package" at the top, and only "DVM ARM11 optimized (sdx) Linpack ~4,5MFlops" at the bottom, then hit generate and place that file you download to your SD card.
    Ok, seems preparations finished. Side note: your applications, settings etc will remain untouched.

    Flashing: put your phone into download mode(make sure its charged) by powering it up with vol down + power + camera. Connect it to your pc, and if windows asks for drivers, direct it to the swallowtail drivers location. There are at least two devices if i remember well, and both use swallowtail driver. Now to check if it's ok, open your device manager in windows, and make sure there are no unknown devices there. Now start odin. It should show your phone, and if the background is yellow, you're good to go. For the ops file use your spica_jc3.ops you downloaded earlier, and for PDA use the kernel you downloaded earlier: i5700_LK2-06_beta4_PDA.tar . Do NOT change any options in odin, the defaults are good for you. Hit start, and wait. If it hangs during (1) Setting up connection, then disconnect the phone, pull out your battery, and restart the process. You'll see a nice progess bar installing your kernel, it will finish pretty fast, and it will automatically reboot your phone. I don't remember if first boot will start at recovery or not, doesnt really matter, after the flashing finished the background in odin will switch to blue(i think). Now, you got your root, and samdroid recovery installed. Turn off your phone, and insert your SD card with the zip(do not unpack) you downloaded from the kitchen. Start the phone in recovery mode: vol down + accept call + power. Go to apply any zip from sd, and select Samdroidmod_update.zip. After that, reboot, and you're done.

    Basically. This is not a howto, just a basic walkthrough.
