Proceed with caution!


    ok so i found a whole page with all the known tweaks to said files above. some of these may not work most of them will and make the phone soo much more responsive!

    if you find any that dont work please post them so others wont go trying to use them.
    include the phone model your using and the rom version please.

    list is super long so im only posting the link to the source for now till we can narrow down which ones do and dont work.

    okay im trying to work this out i want to test these setting, just to clearify all i have to do is add the settings that arent there yet and restart to take affect?   some of these i wouldnt mind having so ill see how well they work or dont

    i rather ask the question and look stupid than mess it up trying to guess

    This is how I do it as far as editing build prop. I use es file explorer to open build prop and change whatever I want then save it and reboot

    this is prolly the best method to take if you dont have experiance in building or editing roms! download and root file manager programe (i.e. root explorer, es file explorer) edit the build.prop (found in /system) save and reboot.

    so far i have found that for LG Optimus Q users the internet speed tweak works VERY WELL!
    also testing the signal tweaks and wifey now gets signal in areas of the house that she would drop the calls the most!

    the only ones im hesitant to use on any phone are the ones that affect the kernal

    a) removes journalism
    tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/system
    tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/system
    tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/cache
    tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/cache
    tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/data
    tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/data

    b) perfect mount options
    busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nodiratime,barrier =0,nobh /system
    busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nosuid,nodev,nodir atime,barrier=0,nobh /data
    busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nosuid,nodev,nodir atime,barrier=0,nobh /cache

    7. Flags blocks as non-rotational and increases cache size
    LOOP=`ls -d /sys/block/loop*`;
    RAM=`ls -d /sys/block/ram*`;
    MMC=`ls -d /sys/block/mmc*`;
    for j in $LOOP $RAM
    do
    echo "0" > $j/queue/rotational;
    echo "2048" > $j/queue/read_ahead_kb;
    done

    9. Defrags database files
    for i in \
    `find /data -iname "*.db"`
    do \
    sqlite3 $i 'VACUUM;';
    done

    10. Ondemand governor tweaks
    SAMPLING_RATE=$(busybox expr `cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_transition_latency` \* 750 / 1000)
    echo 95 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
    echo $SAMPLING_RATE > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate

    11. Auto change governor and I/O Scheduler

    a) I/O Scheduler (Best: MTD devices - VR; EMMC devices - SIO) - needs kernel with these
    echo "vr" > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler
    or
    echo "sio" > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler

    b) Governor (Best: Minmax > SavagedZen > Smoothass > Smartass > Interactive) - needs kernel with these
    echo "governor-name-here" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

    just to name a few... aside from that i've impressed myself with this find and am wondering why more devs dont not only have most of these implemented but use them in every build.prop!

    Thoughts ones go in build.prop but idk if they'll cause. Issues or not was waiting. To see. If Dh could shed. Some. Light on them.

    Would like to use the signal tweak. Saw there wasn't a property for it already, so I just added the tweaks in. I'm assuming it doesn't matter where you add the in the text file? Amidoinitrite?

    Best to add it into the bottom in the "additional configs"  section
