    Default Seeder app

    Has anyone tried this out yet? It's on the XDA site.

    Hm?? What's it for? Seed to me sounds like a torrent.

    Suppose to reduce lag (though, for me, that really isn't a problem on my S3).

    I happened to stumble across that thread over at XDA a few days ago. I've read through 25 pages so far and while I was interested at first, I've concluded from reading that it helps some phones (mostly older phones) but would be of little or no benefit for the S3.

    There's another thread on here somewhere. Apparently all it does is force the phone to run at maximum clock speed all the time. Sounds like a battery killer to me.
    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.

    My battery acts like it normally does

    I see no current defect from this app at all

    What "lag" are people taking about? My phone runs great... Unless maybe it runs even better with this tweak/fix?

    If xda wrote a retraction article then it's for good reason. I'm an adviser, so I'm advising people to read up.

    I'm not saying not to advise others, im just saying I haven't seen any negative battery life, or anything in my cpu reading app that detects anything out of the ordinary

    From what I read about this on Google code is that it may be a total fluke on the app devs part lol his methodology behind it makes no sense but may in fact affect certain flaws in certain versions of the android fork kernel. Its uncertain if it affects Linux mainline kernel. The biggest issue is Google lacks proper testing tools for performance or baselines. These guys have no way to get accurate measurements.

    Quick testing showed me no change in responsiveness although I doubt anybody would take my word for it lol. I may do an extended run to see what my monitors pull up I have stuff a bit more accurate than CPU spy. So I will monitor on a clean slate my CPU status as well as the app itself and try to measure usage to give decent data. It will likely be inconclusive but who knows.
