Original Thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1709836

I've been collecting some tweaks and scripts and seems to me it's now time to share it. While some values in terms of optimization might be different from device to device, I've found these pretty consistent throughout many.

I didn't tested all of them, and i don't assume any risk!!! Use them at you own risk!!!

Some useful tips on how to use them at the end of the post

This thread will be updated when new/better things come out

Superuser, Busybox install/update

1. Easily install Busybox (YOU NEED ROOT FIRST)
Code:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bnN0YWxsZXIiXQ..
2. UPDATE SuperUser (root app)
Code:
http://goo.im/superuser/


Build.prop
(edit your /system/build.prop with a file manager with root access)

Careful for already existing settings. In this case, just change the values.

1. Force launcher into memory

Init.d
(needs ROM with init.d access and busybox, open empty file, insert header #!/system/bin/sh and put these there, save in /system/etc/init.d and name it something like 77tweaks)

1. strict minfree handler tweak
Code:
echo "2048,3072,6144,15360,17920,20480" > /sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/minfree
2. internet speed tweaks
Code:
echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps;
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_tw_reuse;
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack;
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_tw_recycle;
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling;
echo "5" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_probes;
echo "30" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_keepalive_intvl;
echo "30" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_fin_timeout;
echo "404480" > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max;
echo "404480" > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max;
echo "256960" > /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default;
echo "256960" > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_default;
echo "4096,16384,404480" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem;
echo "4096,87380,404480" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem;
3. vm management tweaks
Code:
echo "4096" > /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes
echo "0" > /proc/sys/vm/oom_kill_allocating_task;
echo "0" > /proc/sys/vm/panic_on_oom;
echo "0" > /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode;
echo "0" > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
echo "50" > /proc/sys/vm/vfs_cache_pressure
echo "90" > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_ratio
echo "70" > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio
4. misc kernel tweaks
Code:
echo "8" > /proc/sys/vm/page-cluster;
echo "64000" > /proc/sys/kernel/msgmni;
echo "64000" > /proc/sys/kernel/msgmax;
echo "10" > /proc/sys/fs/lease-break-time;
echo "500,512000,64,2048" > /proc/sys/kernel/sem;
5. battery tweaks
Code:
echo "500" > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_expire_centisecs
echo "1000" > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs
6. EXT4 tweaks (greatly increase I/O)
(needs /system, /cache, /data partitions formatted to EXT4)

a) removes journalism
Code:
tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/system
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/system
tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/cache
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/cache
tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /block/path/to/data
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /block/path/to/data
b) perfect mount options
Code:
busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nodiratime,barrier =0,nobh /system
busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nosuid,nodev,nodir atime,barrier=0,nobh /data
busybox mount -o remount,noatime,noauto_da_alloc,nosuid,nodev,nodir atime,barrier=0,nobh /cache
7. Flags blocks as non-rotational and increases cache size
Code:
LOOP=`ls -d /sys/block/loop*`;
RAM=`ls -d /sys/block/ram*`;
MMC=`ls -d /sys/block/mmc*`;
for j in $LOOP $RAM
do
echo "0" > $j/queue/rotational;
echo "2048" > $j/queue/read_ahead_kb;
done
8. microSD card speed tweak
Code:
echo "2048" > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb;
9. Defrags database files
Code:
for i in \
`find /data -iname "*.db"`
do \
sqlite3 $i 'VACUUM;';
done
9. Remove logger
Code:
rm /dev/log/main
10. Ondemand governor tweaks
Code:
SAMPLING_RATE=$(busybox expr `cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_transition_latency` \* 750 / 1000)
echo 95 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
echo $SAMPLING_RATE > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate
11. Auto change governor and I/O Scheduler

a) I/O Scheduler (Best: MTD devices - VR; EMMC devices - SIO) - needs kernel with these
Code:
echo "vr" > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler
or
echo "sio" > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler
b) Governor (Best: Minmax > SavagedZen > Smoothass > Smartass > Interactive) - needs kernel with these
Code:
echo "governor-name-here" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
12. Auto-zipalign on boot
(needs zipalign bin)
Code:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=860586
13. Loopy Smoothness tweak
Code:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1137554
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1205744
14. Move dalvik-cache to cache partition (if it's big enough) to free up data partition space
Code:
CACHESIZE=$(df -k /cache | tail -n1 | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f2)
if [ $CACHESIZE -gt 80000 ]
then
echo "Large cache detected, moving dalvik-cache to /cache"
if [ ! -d /cache/dalvik-cache ]
then
busybox rm -rf /cache/dalvik-cache /data/dalvik-cache
mkdir /cache/dalvik-cache /data/dalvik-cache
fi

busybox chown 1000:1000 /cache/dalvik-cache
busybox chmod 0771 /cache/dalvik-cache

# bind mount dalvik-cache so we can still boot without the sdcard
busybox mount -o bind /cache/dalvik-cache /data/dalvik-cache
busybox chown 1000:1000 /data/dalvik-cache
busybox chmod 0771 /data/dalvik-cache
else
echo "Small cache detected, dalvik-cache will remain on /data"
fi
15. Disable normalize sleeper
Code:
mount -t debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug
echo NO_NORMALIZED_SLEEPER > /sys/kernel/debug/sched_features
16. OOM groupings and priorities tweaks - SuperCharger
Code:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276

GPS.conf
(create or edit your /system/etc/gps.conf with a file manager with root access)

For improving GPS lock time and signal.

a) European NTP server (replace for america or asia in your case)
Code:
NTP_SERVER=europe.pool.ntp.org
XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
b) SE supl for A-GPS (better than Nokia's or Google's)
Code:
SUPL_HOST=supl.sonyericsson.com
SUPL_PORT=7275

Other tweaks or guidelines

1. Patch your hosts file for blocking Ads
(please think before doing this; many developers are supported through this way)
Code:
You can use AdFree application for this or changing manually your hosts file.

Here are some databases:
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt
http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/server...stformat=hosts
2. Use CyanogenMOD's APN list file - it's one of the most complete.
Code:
It's located in /system/etc/apns-conf.xml
3. Use UOT kitchen for basic theming on your device.
Code:
http://uot.dakra.lt/
4. Use Google's dns servers
Code:
Create an empty file, name it resolv.conf and put there these 2 lines:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

Save to /system/etc/.
5. Update Superuser and su binary to latest version (3.0 beta)
Code:
http://goo-inside.me/superuser/
6. Disable sync feature in sqlite
(author: ownhere - needs a source for your device so you can compile the /system/lib/libsqlite.so)
Code:
Patch file here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=903507
7. Do not use task killers.

sysctl_tweaks and sysctl.conf tweaks
added by krabappel2548 Thank him

To make them work:
1. make a new file in /system/etc/init.d, name it sysctl_tweaks
2. make a new file in /system/etc, name it sysctl.conf
3. Paste the right code in the right file

1. sysctl_tweaks
Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
# grep sysctl /etc/init.d/*
/etc/init.d/02vm:# Load /sys/etc/sysctl.conf
/etc/init.d/02vm:sysctl -p
2. sysctl.conf
Code:
#sysctl.conf file

it would be helpfull know which improove and which deprove specific Rom.
Im using JS 6.1 and for example i dont know if for example this random row:
- wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=180
could improove this rom or it has some better settings somehow

ro.ril.htcmaskw1=14449
ro.ril.hsupa.category=5"

but without the two lines of "htcmaskw1.bitmask=...."
so what the different ??

Actually htcmaskw1 command sets the perbit mask tranfer means that when u r on ur data conncetion in no wifi u get the max speed by the value
so the most optimized value has to be said there
