Hello Folks! After the huge success of my project "PROJECT DARK BOOSTER" I have decided to make it more unique, more powerful, more eligent. So I decided to rebuild everything from A to Z & I done this. I rebuild the whole ArkayNine. In this version I have added lot of features, modes & tweaks which will make your device smooth like hell. We have now our own terminal menu with a lot of features. I have also renamed the tweak from "ArkayNine Boost Script" to "ABS Tweaks". Where ABS stands for ArkayNine Boost Script. I renamed this just to short the name. So take a look at all the features of NeW ABS Tweaks.


1. Make a backup of your current ROM before flashing it. If something goes wrong than, I will not responsible for anything.
2. After Installing Or Uninstalling This Tweak Your Device Will Take 2-3 Minutes To Boot At First Time. It can also take 5-6 minutes in some devices.


ArkayNine Boost Script is a Tweak that combines many scripts and tweaks in one package which is aimed to improve performance, reduce lags and expand battery life, improve stability, improve sound quality.
This mod will work on any device.
All you need to ensure is that your phone is running android!
It doesn't matter which ROM, which version, which device etc.
It will work from Android 2.3 GingerBread to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

An Amazing & Helpful Note From An User @Pheno1992

not to offend anyone who is experiencing bootloops after installing this tweak..
for stock kernels, it is rare that you will experience bootloops, and besides the tweak works.
just make sure that you have installed the correct busybox and enabled init.d support, there are apps that can create an init.d folder like universal init.d support app by ryuinferno ..the tweaks really supports 2.2 upto recent android os versions..
i tried it in stock kernel, this tweak works but not on all devices, there are some dont support swap..some tweaks works, some are not, meaning device dependent..
all you have to put in mind is that you know what you are doing on your phone...
for custom kernel users, you might experince something like there are some small issues, yes its normal, it is because init.d tweaks for kernels might have different values on some scripts.. on governor tweaks, your custom kernel must have that governor in order to make the scripts work, coz some might experienced force close issues on apps after installing the tweak package while using a custom kernel or bootloops (minor), or hang ups, it is normal.. just reset your kernel (if you set it up in an app like kernel aduitor) then reboot so that the scripts will do their job.
hope it helped..

Hit my highest benchmark score (antutu 70,766) on a sprint s6 edge. That is right, i'll say it onnce more... a sprint s6 edge. Due to low kernel developement, we can't do much in that erea. I was averaging between 63,000 and 67,000. UI lags and all. I enabled 90% of the tweaks in PDB terminal to get some great improvements. The one with the swap, didnt work well. Slowed my device down, but that is only my device and experience. Regular arm64 no swap... gets 2 thumbs way up

Both have many common features but still they works differently. And I think I shouldn't say that which one is better. Give it a try. Hope it will work better than any tweak.
