Hello,

i released version 1.5.0 of my SD-Booster app on the market right now.

Changelog:

- New: Native Android 3.x (Honeycomb) support
- New: MMC detection framework to support any SD-Card
- New: Display current used cache size with colored terms. (red = small size, yellow = medium size, green = optimal size)

- Include some minor bugfixes in previous versions

More user options (settings) will be shipped with the next version!
Coming soon: New features will be released with version 2.0.

App description:

SD-Booster speeds up your SD-Card (external memory-card) up to 40 times! Enjoy a new feeling of speed on your Android smartphone anytime and everywhere you are. 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!

For experts only: App works with read_ahead_kb value

Some few words about this version. Well, this release 1.5.0 feels more or less like version 2.0 "light". I'm currently on the way to version 2.0. At a special point i noticed that my predecessor version 1.02 include some nasty bugs, but i didn't like the idea of a small update (1.0.3).
So, i took my current developer version and removed a lot of stuff (unstable or just not ready code) and version 1.5.0 was born. The number "5" tells you i'm on the half way to version 2.0 ;)
However, the most interesting fact is that this release is shipped with my own MMC-Detect-Framework. What does it means for you? Well, this framework should support any internal and external SD-Card out there. No more "static coded paths" should be used.

A special thank you goes to androidnews.de! Without this german online magazine SD-Booster would never exist.


Regards
Akusari

PS: If the app shows any error, please post a catlog. Thanks!

Just downloaded and trying out your app. Getting alot of good reviews on the market and if the performance difference I have seen in the last few remains I will be adding one more. Great work and thanks for the app.

BTW: If someone could create a better SD-Booster logo (SD-Card image at the top (160x160)) i would be pretty happy. I'm a poor graphic designer

I´ve tested on my Galaxy SII with a Kingston 16GB Class 10 SD and it slowed down the system.

The most significant problem was in reading 1080p videos from my SD where before the App were runing smooth and after the App (Configured with a 2048K Cache size) started to chopp and freeze the video.

Just to let you know, maybe is a device especifics and could help to understands why this happens.

Thank You,

Can you describe in more detail how exactly your app is doing this? Are you increasing the read-ahead cache size, or somehow changing the I/O block size? Does it cache writes or enable write clustering? How would this affect large sequential transfers vs. small random access? Does it affect reads differently than writes?

I'm already using AutoKiller Memory Optimizer, which has it's own "SD card tweak" (increases the read-ahead cache), so I want to make sure both apps aren't fighting for the controls.
