Info 2 [Q] Fsync default status?

I have a TF101 and am installing KatKiss on it, but I don't know if I should enable fsync or not. I read that it improves data integrity at the expense of a large speed drop. Is it enabled in the official Asus ROM, and most other custom ROMs for TF101, and ROMs in general?

As stated in the OP fsync is off by default. if you want it flash fsync=on.zip - I believe after the ROM .. maybe after GAPPS. BTW I always flash it whenever I flash a ROM and I keep my overclock to 1200. I know others go to 1400 but I keep it down.
good luck whatever you decide.

Default asdf

So fsync is off by default in all roms, not just this one?

I tried it on / off.
I prefer off. No problems so far.
