Getting more out of my Evo Shift (Already OC'd, custom kernel, set governor, I/O scheduler, etc.)
Alright, so I'm running Cyanogenmod 7.2, which works wonders for me and was a huge step up from the stock ROM. I have my phone overclocked to 1.3GHz using the SmartAss governor, so it mostly ramps up to 1.1GHz until it's really needed, which then it goes up to the 1.3GHz, and not only is it completely stable, the performance is phenomenal and my battery is much longer than even on the stock frequency somehow...
I changed my I/O scheduler to Simple I/O and that helped even more, much better than CFQ or BFQ, and even noop. I set my SD cache to 1024KB, so a full megabyte of cache, and that also increased read/write speeds quite a bit in conjunction with SIO.
I flashed a custom kernel, Sparksco's stable kernel, and apparently it ported ZRAM from Linux 3.*, but unfortunately I don't think it happens to be running because the 'free' command doesn't show any swap available. If anyone knows how to check if it is working, and if not, how to activate it, it'd be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately the kernel does not have SmartAss V2, but it's no deal breaker.
I used Android Tuner, a trustworthy system tweaking suite for a nice price on the market, to do some kernel tweaks, and even have it to zipalign or whatever it's called on boot, or as it calls it "Optimizing Applications & Databases". Decided to skip on entrophy since I've heard it doesn't do much.
I use JuiceDefender Ultimate to further extend my battery life, as it controls my WiFi (via location, when I get close to a spot, it'll enable WiFi, and doesn't use GPS, and if I leave disable it). It controls the brightness sensors to detect when to brighten or darken the screen. Turns off 3G when screen is off, although I've a toggle that will disable it when I don't need it, but WiFi will remain on (set by me since WiFi uses less power and I normally keep it on when needing quick access or downloading).
So, yeah... I may have missed a bit, but that's the gist of it. Any other tweaks you guys recommend?
