    Default Say goodbye to lag (rooted users)

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...om.lcis.seeder

    Check out this all called seeder guys, I didn't believe it would actually work, but it does, im not even sure how, but everything runs smoother, images from apps like instaagram load quickly, no lag when going back to your launcher after exiting an app, even removing apps from your task manager feels smoother

    Even the slowest thing on my phone, the go launcher app drawer, is much smoother

    All for 1.40$

    Check it out, it's well worth it

    I got it. Never really had lag in the first place. Idk though. I'll keep it but i think it's just the placebo affect

    Really? I'll run one myself later

    I don't think it's meant to boost ur score but overall performance wise, I feel most things on my phone are much much much smoother and a lot less lag especially with go launcher, which is usually slow as crap, especially they're app drawer which might as well have been a slide show prior to getting this app

    This app causes a placebo effect and in most cases could cause more problems then it does good. There was an article about it recently let me see if i can find it.

    Its because it keeps your CPU awake and running at higher clock rates. If you have something to log CPU speeds and times you could test an average day with and without it.

    A few days back I read 40+ pages on XDA on this. While I was excited at first I came away concluding that this probably will help older phones, but not your S3. If you read the whole thread you will understand why.

    It won't "help" any phone. All it does is effectively disable CPU throttling causing the CPU to run at full rated speed all the time giving the illusion of a faster phone. The only other outcome that will come from this is lowered battery life. This is nothing more than a 'registry tweak' from Win95 days.

    I'm using the Ktoonservative governor so I shld be fine

    But I do notice one thing, I believe seeder is preventing ktweaker from locking the clock speed, but is using the gouvenour still

    Edit: Nvm, i fixed the issue, stupid ktweaker wasn't saving applying my settings correctly, lol

    Now I'm back to 1242

    Let me google that for you
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    But this is no placebo effect, it clearly does something because prior to it, my go launcher app drawer would be soo slow and laggy, and now it's not

    I have an app that makes my screen turn off once I put my device face down, and now it works faster

    Loading people's instagram pictures pages now loads the images faster

    These things are legit. I don't feel it affects every app but it does indeed work

    Still not sure. I have felt like a couple apps were opening faster but i still don't know. I asked for a refund. If he gives the refund to me then I'll take it. If he doesn't then oh well

    I wouldn't say you open apps faster, i haven't particularly seen that, I've just seen situations that previously had lag or little hitches, no longer having it and images rendering faster in certain apps

    It's well worth the 1$

    What lag are people talking about? My phone runs great from what I can tell... Or does it run even better after this tweak/fix?

    Don't know how to describe it, but in most situations, it just makes things smoother

    Only certain things lagged for me in the past, specifically the go launcher app drawer, now it's fixed.

    Let's just say this makes ur phone smoother

    I've been running Seeder V6 since last week. I've noticed some things may seem a bit faster but I also feel I'm using battery faster. No two days are exactly the same for me usage wise so I don't have empirical evidence to back up my feelings. There's always a cost.

    I plan on running my own testing I have some tools to measure CPU usage and loads as well as monitoring the app itself to see how it affects my system overall. I'm not expecting much usable data but I can hope.

    There are literally thousands of posts talking about this on XDA. The consensus seems to be equally divided on good/bad. Some claim enormous gains (no pills involved), and others say it ruined their lives. Most seem somewhere near the middle, like me, and can't see much in either direction.
