Does it cause more wear?
How does this actually change the writing and reading?
Does it only improve sequential? or does it also improve random?
Does it hurt random because of the larger block write?
i think these are some important questions to answer. Also it seems this only affect internal memory and not the SD card. Because i found a boost when using membench which tests internal only i guess and i found no improvement using sd tool testing my micro sd card. Does anyone have any input on this? I think there are a lot of questions needing to be answered here.
Okay to somewhat answer this persons posts. and to inform unawares.
1st read the research post referenced in the OP.
the block size is the same, it only affects how it reads and not how it writes. therefore additional "wear" would be neglible at the most.
since its read ahead, its not going to have much of an effect on random/small files.
also its not an internal android setting. judging by the location of the setting its actually a kernel setting.
please feel free to correct me if im wrong, and provide a legit link i can learn off of.
Yet another drop link, yea help me and it will help you. or sooo they say
