    Oh ok, thank you. I was looking around for the key combo, and that brought me back into recovery. Thanks, I'm pretty new at this

    Thank you mrg666, I'll try it out and if it works I'll mention it on the first post.

    Even though I got a newer phone on a different carrier I'm still using my OV. It's not too much of a distraction to be honest, the OV is excellent, don't doubt your devs either

    I didn't really see any differences in benchmark either, but the weird thing is that the performance boost is still noticeable in general.

    Placebo effect or?? All I know is it really does feel smoother!

    EDIT: I should have probably mentioned that I am running Joyfully Optimus Rom, just in case others also using it are wondering if this works for them.

    Actually no. I'm on bobzhome, so it has the VM boot splash. After the splash, I got nothing. Blank screen. But setting the permissions works. It runs great

    Just reflash the rom over top, don't wipe. You will have to reflash gapps.

    No wonder, if you want the best results set your governor to performance. Is that the higest you could overclock your device? I was able to run my benchmark tests at 864 MHz max. I'll try again and see what score I get this time around.

    Wouldn't the Force check in Developer Options on ICS/JB do the same thing, or am I missing something?

    cant really confirm this but I was having issues with netflix audio going out of sync. I decided to try it after this and it looks like its fixed.The rotating animation seems to have gotten faster as well. I know me posting this is useless but it might help

    I think that tweak only applies to apps and not the whole UI, I may be wrong tho but that's my guess.

    That's weird, I'm pretty sure it had something to do with Netflix. How was your connection at the time? I had issues like that with Netflix at some point, but only when I had a bad connection. Either it took a while to buffer or it was choppy with video and/or audio. I'm glad it wasn't a permanent problem tho.

    Try listening to music and see how the audio has been effected by the tweak. I noticed a significant increase in quality, bass sounds better now.

    I just grabbed the zip, wiped cache and dalvik and flashed it. Just poking around a bit, I did find that Facebook and Words seem much snappier after. Anytime you can use hardware rather than software, that's goodness.

    I did the manual version before mrg posted the zip to flash. it does "seem" faster. Im on AOKP right now...

    Only issue Im having right now that I didnt have before, Im trying to update to tdm's newest nightly and it wont boot to recover with the power menu. Im going to do a battery pull and see if I can get into it with keypress.

    Nope, I usually run it at least 806 but I'm going for longer battery life.

    Edit: running benchmark on 864 and performance, gave me a reboot, it also reset the cpu settings to default

    Thumbs up Re: [GUIDE] Disable CPU rendering

    Works really well for me. Ran a 3d game on my phone, along with Skyfire video (converted from flash). Flash video at 240p fullscreen (youtube) runs more steadily, but of course running from app using HTML5 video is better. Speaking of which, HQ video from youtube app is smoother without the software driver.

    Updated my phone with mrg666's latest ROM and kernel, then applied his egl fix. Phone doesn't seem to heat up as much, as far as I can sense, after this fix. I've played around with it for a few hours.

    No problems yet!
