Hi guys, i was watching Arc's forum and i found an interesting flashable zip for improve arc's performances and stabily; Here the link to the original thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1249387

When i saw "Render UI with GPU", i was surprised cause i know that gingerbread does not support GPU acceleration. So, i took a look at the content of the package and i found an interesting line added in build.prop:

video.accelerate.hw=1


So, I tried to add this line to my build.prop (wolf v5 rom) and after reboot seems that my touch responsiveness is changed..touch quality is not better but seems that scrolling speed is increased!! Maybe it is just a placebo effect but i notice some improvment expecially in:

-SE home menu scrolling
-SE home widgets overview (try to shake the phone and watch widgets movement)

So..Seems very strange that a so simple modify can be increase performance and nobody here ( great devs and modder) find it yet!! So this is just a test..so who want can try and report if this tweak work or not!!

Procedure:

-Open your build.prop with an explorer (rot explorer for ex.) (root required)
-Add this line:

video.accelerate.hw=1

-Save and close
-Reboot

Let's know me what do you think.

All credits and thanks to W1000i that share this files in Arc forum

Cheers
Francesco

Do I insert that line at the bottom of the build prop.
Because mine last line = ro.ril.disable.power.collapse=1

Can I put it under there?
