Hello,

i released version 1.0.2 of my SD-Booster app on the market right now.

Changelog:

This version fix a root permission bug found by Andreas and include tweaks for some devices (e.g LG Optimus Speed, Motorola Milestone).

Coming soon: New features will be released with version 2.0.

Market-Link: https://market.android.com/details?i...mann.sdbooster
AppBrain-Link: http://www.appbrain.com/app/sd-boost...mann.sdbooster

App description:

Starting apps, listing to your favorite music or just swapping data with your PC ? Whatever you do, the SD-Booster improve your phone speed!

SD-Booster needs root permission to run, otherwhise SD-Booster can't do anything!

correct me if i'm wrong, but this app changes your read_ahead_kb value in your sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0 right? what values does it sets it to? 2048 or 3069?

All it does is increase how fast it reads your SD card. so yes, it can speed up a lot of your casual activity's. harmless also.

Yes all it does is change your read ahead cache. You can also use this script. Place it in your system\etc\init.d folder and change permissions to rwxr-x--
You can change the value to what ever you want by editing the ''768'' Ive found 768 to be best balance. anything above 1028 is overkill, it may speed up your Really large files but will slow down small ones and most files you want fast access to are relatively small. IE. music, pic's, text files ect. after you change values and reboot you can check to see if your changes have stuck, simply go to sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0\read ahead cache and open file as text and it will display the running value. You can also change the value directly from there and test your phones performance with each change untill you find the best for you. You will loose your settings after reboot if you just change values from here: sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read ahead cache. This is not intended to knock this cool app in no way. just trying to help ppl understand who didnt and to the people who would like this mod but dont want to have another app running in the background.
*** You will have to remove the ".txt" extension before using this file****

Well, you're right with this path, but there are some more possibilities to set the values (diffferent paths). It depends on the hardware. However, the app set the value received by the GUI.
