Default Test your nand and sd card speed

Please do this test:

write in terminal emulator, not also (...):

(Write file 64MB (8k * 8192) bigger file is better)

busybox dd if=/dev/zero of=/data/out.img bs=8000 count=8192

(Read)

busybox dd of=/dev/null if=/data/out.img bs=8000

(to Remove out.img)

rm /data/out.img


If you don't have int2sd and let /data the phone writes in nand.
If you change / data in /sdcard or /sd-ext you can test your sd-card speed.

Report in this thread your results.
If the test is positive we can ask to our developer to try to include this NativeSD script in roms.

Edit: use androbench from market and try both /data and /system.

That's for nand.

Using nikez jb p0.9 with a2sd y/n/y.
Hope this helps as I ran out of space during the test


Below for sdcard . Using class 10 16GB Kingston (tested r/w speeds on PC they are of class 10).

Is nobody else interested in this to at least see how it works? Or it makes no sense on our desires.
I'm just wondering if our nands are faster than class 6/10 SD cards.

I am guessing the ext4 file system since it buffers returns immediately to write request. Therefore the wrong result in my test.

yes, this script test reports false results, it is better to use the app: ANDROBENCH.
you can try both sdcard and internal. When I will have time to try new Nikez's release (or another non-int2sd rom) I will write my results.

Unfortunately androbench crashes without completing the test. Will try to reinstall or fix permissions maybe that will help. I'm on nikez jb p0.9
