    Default Help - any hack to increase scrolling speed?

    Hello to everyone. Long time AC user, but first post in the Optimus S forums.

    I have an Optimus S, stock ROM. It does everything well except 1 thing: laggy browser scrolling. I've been getting this a lot, and it's surprisingly frustrating.

    I intend to root eventually, but I don't have a desktop PC so I can't right now. Is there any way or hack to increase the browser scrolling speed? Should I be looking at other browsers to optimize performance?

    I think the Optimus S lacks a GPU. Maybe the problem lies there?

    Thanks for any help.

    The Optimus S has a gpu, Adreno 200 I think. And to answer your question. Best bet for lag reduction in general is to root, rom, and overclock it. You wouldn't believe how much better the customs roms are.

    Edit: reread your post and realized I missed the part about no pc, what baseband are you on? It's in the about phone screen. LS670ZVD can be rooted easily without a pc using gingerbreak.apk

    It can also be noted that once you root on zvd baseband, you can install a custom recovery via terminal emulator (do not use rom manager!!!). And also if you are on the ZVJ baseband there are easy methods to roll back to the zvd baseband for that no PC root method.

    My phone is ZVJ. I wanted to root my phone and I thought (or hoped) that rooting the S would be like rooting the V. But I was reading the forums and the most official threads said I needed to roll back the firmware first to ZVD for my phone.

    Yep lol, I think that's my bad luck .

    I'm curious about the firmware, was ZVD updated to ZVJ to stop rooting or something?

    Each time they make a new version they close the old root exploit.

    Np, you know since your not rooted you can just flash the official zvd update.zip to get to zvd right? No pc needed to revert.

    I'm not following you. I have: ZVJ firmware, stock recovery and I'm not rooted. Therefore I'm supposed to follow these instructions, right? http://shop2.sprint.com/en/software_...ptimus_s.shtml.

    From what I see, I have to hook the Optimus up to a PC. Are you saying you can do the ZVD downgrade WITHOUT a PC???

    That's exactly what I'm saying there's an official update.zip that can be flashed from stock recovery to downgrade to ZVD.

    Official Sprint ZVD / Froyo downgrade now available

    Edit: took a look at the link you posted and that's the update.zip I'm talking about and those directions are correct if you download it via a pc. If you can get on a decent wifi connection you can download it directly via your phone and place it on the top level of your sdcard with a file manager from the play store, then follow the non pc related directions

    Awwww yeah, this is awesome! I'm going to install the downgrade in recovery then since I have stock recovery. This will allow me to get rooted w/o a PC. I guess I was following the directions TOO closely, I didn't realize the PC part was really just putting the zip file on SD card!

    Damn I love you now!!

    *edit* I just did some research, seems I have to have a PC to root anyways. Ah well. Rooting is much simpler on the V than the S.

    You dont need a pc to root zvd, it can be done with gingerbreak the same as an OV

    That's what I was thinking. But I wanted to do some research, just to make sure. does the Gingerbreak apk work with 2.3 optimus s
    Check post #15. It's dated 2011 though - outdated?

    Hey, I have one more question. You've been so helpful catching me up with the S, I really and truly appreciate it. If the Gingerbreak APK does work, and I'm rooted, I can use the ZVJ radio patch and then run ZVJ ROMs. Is that right? I don't need to go through all that ZVJ update and manual root again.

    You seem like you've experience with these issues, I can tell. Lol

    Never saw that post but i definitely rooted zvd with gingerbreak before and had no issues. And yes you can run zvj roms on zvd radio with the zvj-zvd patch.

    Once you are restored to zvd and you use the gingerbread exploit to gain root, then you are going to need to get a custom recovery in place. You want xionia ([Custom Recovery] Xionia Clockwork (CWMA v1.2518.6) ) and you will use an app called flash image GUI from the play store to install it. Just download the recovery image from the thread and use the flash image GUI to install it.

    Edit: thewraith does know his stuff, and likely one of the most knowledgable for the Optimus v/s around that still offers help!! I will be honest I have never rooted without a PC so I am glad he was here to help you out.

    I'd recommend Cannibal Open Touch, ZenGarden Touch Recovery or, TWRP all are more up to date then the aging xionia and their developers can be contacted for support.

    Thank you my friend. In fact, I was just installed the Xionia recovery, looking for a custom ROM. Do you have any suggestions? I'm on ZVD patching to ZVJ is possible if necessary ...

    My personal favorite is OM-Mandylion

    He supports the OS and OV
    Really though it'll come to personal choice, make a backup with your recovery and try a few out.

    Just note that Mandylion requires sd-ext so you'll have to partition your sd-card. Also it's good to have sd-ext if you want to try some of the newer ics and jb roms out

    Default Re: Help - any hack to increase scrolling speed?

    I tried a few of the ICS ROMs on this device, found that they take up significantly more internal memory and it just seems like a dev crux to get it to fit and play nice. I found the best performance, feature set, and customizability on this device came using CM7-based ROMs.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.
