    I really hate the Samsung media scanner.

    Hate isn't even a strong enough word. If you have ever noticed, it scans the READ ONLY system on every boot. Then it scans SD card. Scanning the system is where the phone gets most sluggish though.

    Well, I tried my best to hack that feature out and still haven't been able to.

    I did find a workaround though:

    D/MediaScanner( 2798): prescan return
    D/MediaScanner( 2798): Start Original /system/media/
    D/MediaScanner( 2798): found .nomedia, skipping directory

    Its a dirty way of fixing it, but hey, it works.

    The only thing you want to watch for is that you don't wipe.

    If you wipe, you lose your ringtone index. Easily fixed by removing the file or reflashing a rom though.

    fast_media --disables media scanning of system
    default_media --enables media scanning of system.

    Sorry Adrynalyne, got to bug you for a question about these. Do we need to use both of these or just the new scripts one you posted? And for everyone's sake since the second one is script we would run it in terminal emulator, correct?

    Yeah, scripts enable/disable, then reboot you. They stick through a wipe, too.

    You only need one. The scripts are more versatile. Run via terminal emulator or adb shell.

    Flash it through cwm, then open up terminal emulator, next to the $ type su, hit the enter key, wait for super user permission, then a # will appear and next to that type fast_media, hit the enter key. Done. I still haven't figured out adb, so I don't know if it is the same exact method for adb.

    Looks good, flashed it and ran scripts through terminal emulator then rebooted. Safe mode appeared on the home screen along with widgets not working. I did another reboot and its gone, looked like a small hiccup other than that loving the faster startup!

    I am going to email it to myself then go to TE and run the script. Any objections?

    If you don't understand ADB best to just flash through CWM Red as Landshark stated.

    Put the .zip anywhere on your SD card. Boot to Recovery and when you get to the option for apply .zip from SDCard you will see all your folders. If it is in a folder go there if it is on the root of your SDCard use the vol up and down keys to scroll to it. Power key to select it.

    It wasn't a zip file or I would have tried that first. Looks like I DLed a script. Where do I get the zip file from?

    Edit: The file I DLed was a zip but the two files in it had no extension.

    So far I have not had an issue with SC 2.9.1. But when I ran fast_media I think it put the .nomedia file on the root of the SD card. Then the media scanner deleted all the image files off my the SD Card. From what I found out there is a bug in Google Froyo media scanner.

    Yes the SD card will still get scanned. What doesn't get scanned are the read only files on your phone which don't need to be scanned according to what Adrynalyne said when he first posted the script.

    I have placed the media_scanner_fast.zip file on the root of my sd card, but when I flash into recovery mode (3-finger method) and choose that zip file, I'm getting a "E:can't open /sdcard/media_scanner_fast.zip(bad)" message. I've erased and re-downloaded the file a second time and tried it again only to get the same result. I love the idea of a truncated media scanner process so I'd love some advice.
