Media Scanner is a process and just like any other process it either runs as a service, or invoked by some init.* startup script. I'm simply asking for guidance how to modify phone configuration to disable the startup of this process.
Contents of /sdcard are cached, so the only price you pay if it doesnt run is that it wont see any changes, occured since it was last active. If you dont add/remove files on your phone all that frequently - disabling it wont have much impact and it will noticeably improve startup performance
