    CPU rendering is when the CPU does the "work" in graphics, ui, effects 2d rendering etc etc.

    Your cpu is working with programs and also rendering things. the CPU is acting like a GPU if you will...


    A GPU handles all of this on its own. With this MOD it should make the GPU do the work and let the CPU cycle less and work less with U,I and 2d , rendering .. etc etc thus better performance and hopefully better battery.

    Not all phones have a GPU, and even though ours is not extravagant.. the OV still has one and it does a good job if i say so myself.

    feel free to google for more info. this is what i understand. anyone else feel free to correct me if im wrong, im not here to misinform but to participate.
    No your exactly right about that.

    So I understand what happened before. Without this mod, was the CPU doing all the work and the gpu wasn't doing anything? No wonder why our phones were slower an this improves things.
    An no, if your not rendering images you may not notice much difference doing this..simple web browsing and text won't change.

    The most noticeable improvement is the UI in general, the OV wasn't the first phone I tested this on, my E739 was my guinea pig for this tweak before any of my other devices. I just knew the OV had a decent GPU this whole time but to be honest I accidentally came across this tweak while looking for a loopy smoothness tweak that wouldn't bootloop CM9 on my E739. Everything seems to have worked out for the best

    I overclocked mines to Performance governor at 806 for a day while on Airplane mode, still at 60% after heavy usage.

    I was having some issues with Holo Launcher prior to using this tweek, felt laggy to me (and it really shouldn't have). After the tweek, runs smooth and I love it.

    Thanks for figuring this out.

    P.S. was this an issue with stock as well? Or just custom ROMs?

    Not sure to be honest, I haven't even thought about trying this on Froyo.

    Tried it on NC Stock Rom which is Froyo, didn't work, stuck on Boot Screen, now even when I replace it back with it's Original Files it doesn't boot up. So does this mean I need to redo my "WHOLE" Dual Partition Setup?

    Did you make a backup? Just reflash the rom and you should be fine.

    I do too, but only in the first few seconds when the PLAY button comes up with the birds flying across the screen. After that, it's fairly smooth during game play. There are some scenes that might run a little slowly because of extra visual elements. Without the software drivers, game play is usually less choppy for me. I overclock my V's CPU at 806 MHz.

    Nope, didn't make a backup for the Stock Rom, so ended up in doing the Dual Partition setup again, well lesson learned for me.

    BTW please do update the OP that this tweak only works for GB and above. Don't want people to end up like me.

    Is it the ad-free version? The version with ads would always lag for me no matter what.

    I installed it on top of Aeneas ROM (a stock based Froyo ROM from Leslie Ann). I am able to use it. Although I do not know whether there is any improvement. I flashed the zip from mirage from the OP.

    Any idea if this would react with the amphetamines update?

    Trying to tweek for the fastest performance that I can.

    I actually found a performance DECREASE. I restored a backup before I flashed this and the phone is a lot smoother now.

    I have to do a little more testing and let it settle in a bit, but I got the same impression. I'm on Quattrimus AOKP nightly at the moment.

    So that means stock rom is the only one negatively effected?

    Alright, it's been a few hours since I flashed it (and I did use the flashable zip from mrg666). Here's what I've noticed. Somethings do indeed seem faster or smoother, including image rendering in the browser, live wallpaper (AOKP Unicorn Porn [yeah, that's right!]). I didn't try any games (don't have any installed), but if there was a difference in anything else, I didn't notice it. Strangely, my keyboard seems slower than it was before (ICS stock keyboard at the moment). There was a considerably longer lag between each keypress and the character indicator popping up above it. That's all I've noticed so far, and it may just be a system process slowing it down in the background, and it may clear up in a few. I'll report back if anything changes.

    And thanks for making the effort to improve our phones. Your work is appreciated.

    I just found the tweak, I wish I knew how to fix lags and issues with it. This is the best I could do, I'm glad it helps somehow.

    The lag I was experiencing with the keyboard is no longer present, so I guess it was related to something else.

    Like mrg666 said, at bare minimum, you've reduced the need for an unnecessary library, and that's always good!

    Thanks again for the time you've put into this project!

    Does this need to be flashed after a new rom install? It works great for me on Quattrimus. My Antutu Benchmark was 1864. I am going to flash over to Vanilla Bean to try it out and definitely want to keep this tweak running!!
    Thanks for the great work.
