READ ENTIRE OP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took ASXIX, ASv15, added parts from Thunderbolt and a few tweaks from a Cappy ROM (Fasty III), edited a few things here and there, combined them together and flashed them. I got INSANE battery life, super fast performance, shorter boot times, smooth transitions, faster sdcard read/write speed, and higher quad scores (I know most people say those don't matter, but it does account for something).

DO NOT USE THIS WITH RAVERX3X'S OCTANE 3.0
ONLY USE v5 Upgrade if you are currently using any other version of Lightning Zap

Made 3 version
v5 for all ROMs
v5 Upgrade if you are currently on an older version of Lightning Zap
v5 MIUI is for MIUI ONLY

v5
Now adjusts filesystem with tune2fs (still ext4fs) to disable journaling, improve responsiveness, smoothness, and overall performance
Contains newest build.prop tweaks from dsexton702
Now uses Aroma installer by FBis251
Removed duplicate scripts
Added newest FUGU (Actually did that on v3, but failed to mention it)
Reformatted governor tweak a bit (easier to follow instructions to change values)
Decided NOT to add the journaling script and data2ext... for now
Quads hit 2432 on first run and averaged 2696 out of 3 runs, Not OC'd

v5 takes quite a while to install (about 20 to 30 minutes...maybe longer). If you experience FC's, fix permissions and reboot. As we all know, or should know, backups don't always like to play right when restored.

On v5 quads are hitting 3100+ average...

Must be rooted, on Gingerbread build that supports init.d, and have a kernel with voodoo. this has been tested on SG4G and Captivate but it may work on other devices (if you have flashing issues push manually or PM me for help)

DISCLAIMER
I am not responsible for any damage this may cause to your device.


Don't forget to make a backup! Just in case...

INSTRUCTIONS
Download zip and place on sdcard, reboot to recovery, install zip, follow prompts in Aroma installer (No options to change in custom install so use Quick Install), reboot phone, let sit for at least 10 minutes, REBOOT, enjoy!
This can be flashed directly over older versions of Lightning Zap.

If you are not getting the battery life/performance others are getting, refer here:
Gremlin Remover


To see what tune2fs does (and verify journaling is disabled) type:
Code:
tune2fs -l /dev/block/stl9
tune2fs -l /dev/block/stl10
tune2fs -l /dev/block/stl11
For an example of results refer to this post:
tune2fs results on /system partition

OC'd. The original score was 1301. Mind you, for battery life purposes, the tweak I added LIGHTLY overclocks the phone. If you want to increase the oc, use tegrak overclock (preferably paid so changes will stay after boot). I just tried the free version, and it shot my quad score to 2604.

Well, the tweaks definately work... I ran stock on aosp kj1 kernel and scored 1718.
Then installed and ran again, scored 1943 stock. Then Installed new kj6 kernel and ran again and scored 2149 stock no oc. Rebooted phone a couple of times and played around with some programs to let sink in. Now I ran quadrant again stock and got my highest score yet for a stock rom 2408.. added image

Should we delete the init.d scripts that are on the phone before flashing?

No, thanks to dsexton's script, we don't have to do that... Just flash and enjoy.

Hi Thomas

I'm currently testing it.
Are you sure there are no duplications? I see 2 SDCard speedfixes in init.d...

The S77-sdcard-speedfix raises the read ahead from 3072 to 4096. I tried running it without it (just raised the threshold in 02speedcardfix) and the performance was good (17.28 mb/s), but I got much higher readings (22.13 mb/s) when I changed the 02sdcardspeedfix back to 3072 and added the S77-sdcard-speedfix back into it. (These numbers are referenced from DeviceMark app).
