NOOBY, add this link for general public so they would understand how Android works...

http://lwn.net/images/pdf/suspend_blockers.pdf

It tackles about "suspend blockers" or what we call "wakelocks". Android's Power Management.

Take time to read whenever you have time, I'll quote...

Quote:
The Google's Android operating system has been designed with mobile devices, like cell phones or tablets, in mind. Such devices are generally not expected to be able to carry out CPU-intensive computations or do very I/O-intensive kind of work like workstations or servers. Thus, although they are supposed to allow their users to preform some tasks that can also be done on a desktop computer, like browsing the Web, reading and sending e-mail, listening to music or playing simple video games, they generally need not support extensive multitasking and they are inherently single-user. Generally speaking, their performance requirements are quite dierent from the performance requirements of other Linux-based systems.

On the other hand, it is essential that these devices can be used for as much time as possible without connecting to any external power sources (e.g. AC power). In other words, their battery life has to be as long as reasonably possible, even at the expense of performance.
I also posted some references about Governors in general, and Tweaks (for advanced users) in CyanogenMod discussion.

Updated post #2 with how to make a logcat for noobs. READ IT pls, the developers around here will be thankful for them.

And all devs, simply link your consumers here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...84&postcount=2

This will help both sides. Devs get information of whats going wrong and the consumers will get better/faster/more stable ROMs

If you see anything I missed, PM me pls and I ll fix it. The problem I have is, that I dont know, if you need adb SDK as well, cause I had QtADB installed already.

Have fun

Default Procedure to uninstall patches...

Hello NOOBY,

I've read a lot of your posts and I salute you for being too helpful to everyone here who seek advices.

For this very informative thread of yours, would you mind if I request for you to add the procedure how to uninstall patches?

Say for example I have installed a theme and it's working and for certain reason I want to revert back to the previous state, how am I gonna do it.

A big thank in advance!

When you say installed you mean flashed a .zip from recovery?

Yes he does and I might add something about it, but there is no general way, how to do it, since it depends, on what you flashed... It is possible, you only have to remove/replace one file (libsqlit) or something like Beats Audio, where you need to remove like 20 files by hand... Thats pretty hard, so the easiert way, is to make a nandroid and if you dont like the new version after the flash, you can restore the backup.
Hope that's what you meant, but this is NO discussion thread...

N00BY, just suggestion

how about adding info about button combo shortcut (especially in stock rom)
ex :
  • Home + power = screenshot
  • hold G button then power on = enter safe mode
  • hold power button for 5-6 second = reboot (really usefull when screen freeze and some SOD, no need to pull out the battery)
  • etc

Of course there is a way. Maybe I ll add a rooted version of it, as soon, as i got time. But there already is a general way. Will link it, as soon as I got time again

Here you go:
DO IT YOURSELF
Wanna make your own rooted software? It's quite simple, due to navossoc! Thanks for this guide and the tool.
[TOOL] Lg Extract Tool
Follow the guide, and first extract the kdz file into a cab file. Extract this cab file, then you ll get a v00y.wbd file and a LGP970.dll. 00 represents your SW version, e.g. 10 or 20 and y stands for a letter like B,N,...
So you e.g. get a file called v20N.wdb file.
Then again open the programm in cmd and extract the wdb file (see in the link above). Be sure it is in the same folder as the lgextract.exe file, or add the patch of the file. Copying it to the same folder is the easier solution
Now you ll get a new folder and in it a few bin files and one fls file.
First cd ti the new bin folder.
You need to add up all the files with this command:
copy /b "LGP970_AP[*].bin" "LGP970_AP.bin"
Now you have a flashable bin and fls file for Smartflashtool.
If you wanna root it, you need Ubuntu or another linux distribution, which supports the dd command.
Then follow THIS
It's really easy, so dont ask for rooted software anymore, but make it on your own.
To flash and actually root the SW, you need to follow THIS guide, from Step 2 on, and it will be perfectly rooted and you can be sure, that noone patched anything else in your software, cause you made it on your own
