Doesn't look like it. You could always gift him XDA ad-free to show your appreciation though.

I suppose I'll do that. This mod should be incorporated into all future rom builds.

You can just reflash the ROM and gapps without wiping data to uninstall. I'm wondering if replacing libart even gives a noticeable difference in performance.

It could actually more cleanly be incorporated as an 8-line(!) patch to ektf3k.c in the kernel, which is what it originally was, but I wanted it to be as compatible as possible.

Just installed this on both of my tablets.
One is running 5.1.1 with Xposed v80, the other 6.0.1 with Xposed v84.
This hack has indeed improved the touchscreen.
Awesome Mod

Version 0.9.1 released
(2015-05-13 build)
--------------------------

No longer specifically require TWRP (CWM works now)
Make wording in Xposed message less confusing
Make installation faster
Fix 1 second touch delay when turning on screen
Reduce disk space and zip size (no busybox)
Drop 4.3 support as a result of removing busybox (who cares?)

Same download link, as always.

Flashed and....
... stuck on a black screen after trying to reboot. Le sigh, should have made a twrp backup.

How can I uninstall this mod?

WTF? I just tested it!

delete /system/su.d, /system/addon.d/01parrotmod.sh and /system/etc/parrotmod using twrp's file manager
(don't forget to mount system first)

EDIT: do you have Xposed?
Edit 2: Xposed works for me! No black screen here.

I've noticed a good improvement in screen responsiveness.... Good work PG. However, can't confirm that there is better RAM management, its very hard to quantity...

Thanks again.

Dang, thanks for the quick response man. I ended up doing a reflash at the time, figured it needed it anyway with the slowdowns lately. I'm not sure what happened to make it blackscreen, I was using CleanROM with xposed and elementalx kernel. Nexus 7 2013 of course.

I will definitely test your mod again with the new rom, I'm just waiting to see first if its performance will degrade with the new rom (always is snappy on reinstall, then slows down big time after a few days to a week of usage.)

I read in your OP not to mess with io schedulers in kernel tweaking apps. What is the io scheduler your mod is made for? For instance if I was using the row io scheduler that comes with elementalx, would this conflict?
