I have LG Optimus 4X HD since 2012. It was good until I upgraded to JB 4.1.2 (official). Severe battery drain, game lags, heating etc forced me to install custom ROMs. First tried CM, better than stock but not as good as I wanted; then tried MIUI V5, much better than both stock & CM. Never tried custom kernels though. I even tried other Chinese ROMs (based on stock) to see if better. Battery, UI etc were more than satisfactory with MIUI but lags in games and sometimes hanging while opening apps were still frustrating. Then one day I saw "Performance Booster" somewhere & gave a try with free version first. It drastically changed the performance then I installed donate version which improved overall experience. As mentioned in the app it didn't improve benchmarks but improved phones performance for sure. In other words, it saved my money from buying a new phone. Now I don't need new one as I have 'Huawei Mediapad X1' for reading, games & watching videos, which I bought here in China for less than 300$ (it's 400 Euros outside China).

So what is it? I don't try to be rude, but at least you can share where we can find it or something. I know Google it's a good friend but I don't know what exactly. BTW thanks for share your experience

I think it's not allowed to post links to apps here in this forum so didn't post. You can search in play store, it's there, give a try & see yourself.

I don't think that it's forbidden to post links, as long as you don't earn money by doing so (for example adfly links). But I'm not absolutely sure.

I've also searched the app on the Play Store, couldn't find any app called "Performance Booster" though.

Im guessing hes talking about this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ormancebooster Which i would highly recommend not using.

This is from the description:

Quote:

Performance Booster will change the kernel process for managing all layers such Android Runtime in Core Libraries and Dalvik VM layers, User Libraries layer, Application Framework layer, and Applications layer.

This is gibberish, makes no sense. And thats the best description they give of what it does. All of this *developers* apps look fake and possibly/ quite likely are malicious in nature. All their apps are 86K in size

I have tested by curiosity, and my conclusion is "I haven't seen any clear effect"
So... immediately uninstalled

Got curious and decompiled the apk. Most of the stuff is license checking. Otherwise it sets a few process management properties and that's all.

Mostly yeah, which is why this thread is finally being moved into general section (where all shares are supposed to go into) as well as closed.
