Attention: This guide is for an older version of the V6 SuperCharger.
This doesn't mean that you can not use this guide as a reference or interesting read, but the new script has some more options which aren't covered here. You have to read the instructions within V6 carefully.











I did a lot of testing some weeks ago and now that I finally have some time I'd like to share what I got so far.
The V6 Supercharger is a tweak skript by zeppelinrox which works really great on my 2x. It feels smoother and snappier than ever - and multitasking is damn fast (and I never felt that CM7.2 was unsnappy.. but there is a difference now).

I won't talk a lot about what it is and how it does work - read the original thread. It has an even better effect on low spec phones, but it does improve the snappyness on high-end phones, too (and is even used on Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus phones!)
[Script][MOD][U9RC6.1] Sticky 'n Smooth ISCream-=V6 SUPERCHARGER!=-The ONLY RAM Fixer
All credits go to zeppelinrox for this great script!

Here's a quote for what it does:

It rearranges and fixes the OOM Groupings and Priorites and lowmemorykiller values.

So basically, it's a COMPLETE MEMORY MANAGEMENT FIX!

It's the ONLY one of it's kind

NO LAUNCHER REDRAWS, faster than ever, multitasking is better... why?
Because it works with the lowmemorykiller and letting it work the way it's meant to work.

Warnings:

  • This is not for ICS! Go to the 2nd post in the thread linked above - there are instructions for ICS (CM9) - I don't use CM9 yet and don't want to include instructions here, which I haven't tested thoroughly.
  • You shouldn't use this with custom kernels (like vadonkas) I guess - it might break some tweaks from the kernel devs.
  • I tested this with CM7.2 (temasek KANG) with the stock CM-kernel and it is working GREAT! It should make an even greater difference on Stock - please report!
  • I tested lots of options and never had a single problem.. but you should do a nandroid backup! There is always a slight chance that something goes wrong.

Instructions:
(type all options without quotes.. I hope that's obvious)..

  • Go to Settings - Cyanogenmod - Performance and make sure that "Lock home in memory" is not checked. If it is: uncheck it and restart (don't worry, the tweak will take over with a better solution than a permanent lock in memory).
  • Download the "V6_SuperCharger_for_Android-update9_RC6.1.sh.txt" from the original thread or from the attachments here and put it to the root directory of your SD card.
  • Open "Terminal Emulator"
  • Type "su" (and approve the Superuser request)
  • Type "cd /sdcard"
  • Type "sh V6*" (this is cAsE-sensitive)
  • The first time "wizard" will guide you through the installation process.
  • for the scrolling speed "2" is a good choice for the first time
  • type "b" for the build.prop option
  • type "y" to integrate /init.rc
  • I disabled the "AWESOME" animation (type "y") because it would get annoying after waiting for it to finish after the 3rd time.. sorry for that zeppelinrox
  • press the enter key
  • now type "10" (Quick V6 Custo-OOMizer option)
  • type "y" to use the calculated values
  • press enter twice
  • type "29" to reboot and wipe dalvik cache. The restart will take a while, be patient, that's normal!
  • that's it!


There's a "quick walkthrough" in the second post - together with the best options (at least for me) for the older update 8.

Instructions for the "older" update 8:

  • Go to Settings - Cyanogenmod - Performance and make sure that "Lock home in memory" is not checked. If it is uncheck it, restart the device and recheck
    (don't worry, the tweak will take over - I didn't have a single launcher redraw).
  • Download the "V6_SuperCharger_for_Android-update8.sh.txt" from the original thread or from the attachments here and put it to the root directory of your SD card.
  • Open "Terminal Emulator"
  • Type "su" (and approve the Superuser request) (without quotes.. I hope that's obvious)
  • Type "cd /sdcard"
  • Type "sh V6*" (this is cAsE-sensitive)
  • Type "0", "1", "2", or "3" to set how fast the text will scrool. "2" is a good selection for the first time.
  • Choose "9"
  • Type "16" (your device will restart without further warning!)

there is already a update 9, which works perfect on the speed, but I don't see great improvements between Chuck Norris Edition with and without V6. Think Chuck Norris is already so awesome.

P.S: really easy to set up, just download Script Manager from the Market, open it, click on SU and open up this Script, everything else will be explained through the MENU

I know it's not ready yet, but I'm already psyched about it :D
I already have a question about it.

If I run this skript is it suggested to change minfree values?

I have mine set on 16-24-32-90-100-110 right now. Thats pretty heavy I think, but Setiron suggested those values.

Hey, can you tell us how long you've been using this?
And can you tell us where you actually saw the improvement?

Yup but update 9 is still a RC. I know it's pretty stable but haven't tested it yet, will do that over the weekend and update the instructions if everything works fine.

You're correct - the Chuck Norris ROM does use a lot of tweaks, too - this is mainly focused to non-tweaked CM7 and Stock ROMs

this script only advantage the bulletproof/hard to kill launcher for as, but since the o2x is a highend phone the launcher reload fast, probably dont even noticed that and if you have a memory hungry launcher probably not a bad thing if this is not stuck in the memory, so its not really necessary this. bulletproof the launcher is good thing in an old phone like moto milestone (this script originally made for that phone by the way)

the memory management is not so good, the autokiller memory optimizer app do a much better memory management and its user friendly.

also this script minfree values is not optimized for the o2x.

I'd rather not use overall, but its your choice guys
