For those of you have either heard of, or are using the Seeder entropy generator, then you well like this; because that is what it is based off of. There are two versions, one includes the rngd-tool binary for entropy generator, and the other is for use with VM670_kernel_MiRaGe_01272013 or OM-Mandylion kernel.
The problem is the Seeder.apk is that it feeds /dev/urandom into /dev/random and this can cause problems with security issues with the kernel.
What this does:
- Starts rngd-tool binary at boot (only on if the binary is present).
- Treaks write wakeup threshold allowing for quicker respond time of sleep and wake timing.
- Treaks read wakeup threshold allowing for better read of wake and sleep state.
Battery life is not effected.

Place zip on root of sdcard, booting into recovery wipe cache and dalvik-cashe, then flash zip.
reboot system and enjoy.
If using VM670_kernel_MiRaGe_01272013 or OM-Mandylion kernel.

Linux-Kernel Archive: [RFC][PATCH] Entropy generator with 100 kB/s throughput
faster randomness that should still be secure. trying to get it working on the raspberry pi, then I'll be putting together a kernel for the ov that uses it by default
