With fsync off you are just measuring the write speed of your RAM.

As you can see they are approx the same as the external data setup gives the same benefits as internal + fsync without the dangers of disabling fsync.
its a 32GB card sir..

as for the external data setup vs internal.. i dont seem to comprehend.. does external mean the DATA2SD mod? im really sorry, but much of the terms are very new to me..

If you are using data2sd or rom2sd then /data is on your external sd card.

Run the same test as me what do you get?

would a reinstall possibly fix this?

how I plan to reinstall..
reboot to recovery, advance wipe everything (same options, will not do anything about fsync)
then reinstall cromi 5.3, go back to home
then flash 5.3a patch, then reboot

would that be okay? i am scared to brick my device.. or how should i go about it? i have copied my files to my computer and do not have many apps, i use my tablet solely really for studying.. so a total wipeout really wont bother me..

BTW I tried the benchmarks without fsync disabled and got very similar to yours so it looks like the card controller is rubbish on the transformer as well. But the rom should feel zippy even so.

If you want to wipe your data2sd partition you'll need to run the mount zip first.

Why don't you just try a nice clean install on internal first - let's get that up and running.

heres what i did..
factory reset, then wipe internal.. then flash mount zip, delete internal (just to make sure)
then flash cromi-x 5.3, home, flash 5.3a patch then reboot (this time i disabled fsync)

the tablet booted, runs

i did perform any backups but i still have androbench and google drive(i used it to transfer the screenshots)? isnt it suppose to be gone? even my pie shorcuts are still here..

i ran the test again, here are the results (even the screenshot shortcut settings remained the same, shouldnt it have been affected by the reset as well?

anyway, the numbers showed big imporvements on write speeds!

I would like to thank you alot sir! I simply cannot afford a new tablet. Your work has breathed new life to my. More power to you sir!

As a matter of fact, I am tying this from my tablet! There isn't a thanks button in sight though.. I will hit thanks as soon as I get on the computer! Currently slaving away in the library..
