Possible sms fix for hero roms (also ringing speed)
taken from this thread
in the dream forum, might be best contributing to that but I thought I'd start a new thread to draw attention to the 'fixing sms issues' aspect of this.
basically, renice is a linux utility for changing the priority of applications.
you run it like this:
renice PRIORITY `pidof APPNAME`
appname is the name of an application (duh!), priority is -20 to 20, -20 being highest priority.
I'm running this at the moment:
renice -20 `pidof com.android.mms`
renice -19 `pidof com.android.phone`
renice -18 `pidof mediaserver`
renice 0 `com.google.process.gapps`
on drizzy's full v3, and I think I see an improvement in phone pickup speed and I haven't lost an sms yet.
YMMV, but it's certainly worth playing with.
