Although certainly not everything is wrong, the vast amount of information is wrong. It's supposed to be a "simple" introduction to things but it severely veers off cliff on several things. The explanations seems to be actually copied, or may I say, "rewritten in OP's own words" (Probably why so much is wrong) from all over the place, with little actual knowledge on the topics. Some of the governor explanations really sticked out as painfully wrong and I corrected some of them.

I doubt OP can actually explain anything in this "guide", as I've said most of it is wrong and copied out of context. The zRam explanation is actually out of this world:
Disk paging doesn't even exist on a phone, unless you have a custom kernel which supports, and you yourself actually created a swap space. Fragmentation doesn't exist / doesn't matter on solid state memory.

This really shouldn't be a sticky, and people really would be better off following other guides.

I assume, in your own way, that you're trying to help. Thing is, your condescending tone makes no one want to listen to you. Instead of coming into this thread offering your criticisms, you could offer your assistance to edit the OP. Maybe you're not deliberately trying to be so abrasive, but that's the way you come across. To me, anyway.

MBQSniper is nothing if not helpful, patient, and kind when helping other users. None of us know everything. If we did, we wouldn't be here.

Actually you should care because you're posting mostly wrong information while others are blindly following.

I rember reading up on governors in the link Andrei posted and from another older source long ago and comparing what I understand from useing all those governors and reading up on each of them with what u wrote in your guide is totally different. I can see you're trying to simplify it for everyone to understand in your own way but its not exactly correct and can be confusing cause somethings you mention are unrelated.

This is the tone AndreiLux should have taken. You stated your criticism in a respectful and constructive way. Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestion on using lux for autobrightness, I didn't know this app, but it works nicely.

I know MBQsniper is trying to help people, and he does in many parts of the guide. But unfortunately the governor part is ridden with mistakes, and spreading wrong info is probably not the best way to help people as once you have learned something with a mistake, it's hard to forget it.

fsync section should probably be changed from
Code:
FSYNC:
Faster file reading/loading with a risk of crashing your files on your phone
to
Code:
FSYNC:
When disabled, provides faster writing (not reading) of files with the risk of data loss if the phone crashes or is shut down improperly.
