Make ICS even faster!
I just received ICS on my moto xoom yesterday. I was excited because I kept hearing about how much faster and smoother it was. After installing it and playing around with it for a while, I was able to say that it was faster and smoother, but not as much as I was expecting. I did a little research and found this.
Under setting > developer options > force GPU rendering - I made sure this was checked
I set the Background process limit to 3 processes.
WOW! It made a difference with many things. I mostly use my xoom to view PDF files for work. Many of them have hundreds of bookmarks in the PDF's. Before I made these changes, my bookmarks were very slow to scroll, lots of hesitations when scrolling the bookmarks, and very slow to respond. Now they are smooth as I could ever want without hesitation.
It really is like having a brand new tablet.
