"What the hell bro,
you spilled mayonnaise on my new kicks yo!"


Team SOLO aka The.Emilio presents
The.Emilio Unchained featuring the Seeder Entropy Generator

Prerequisite: So basically, I made this little ROM that is based on the latest CM7.2 Nightly (1/1/2013) and wanted pure speed out of this. I had came across a little mod called Seeder that I shared in the General thread and everyone seems to be having great performance increase, and that was on Jelly Bean based ROMs. I personally experienced this on a Jelly Bean based ROM and actually underclocked with a MIN setting of 384 and MAX of 652 with no lag at all. On Jelly Bean!!! So I said to myself, self, how awesome would this be on a Gingerbread ROM? Well, here it is. The.Emilio Unchained.



Whats in it?!?!:
Code:
Android version 2.3.7 CM7.2 Nightly 1/1/2013
Gapps - Most updated including Gmail
Mason v0.14 sbc-fso kernel
Jelly Bean/ICS modded framework and SystemUI (makes it look like JB/ICS)
Seeder 2.0 entropy generator (what makes this ROM special)
Ice10 Theme for Theme Chooser
ADW Launcher version 1.3.3.8
DSP Manager
Kernel optimization
Init.d tweaks for improved performance
Specific and modified battery tweaks for improved CPU sleep and battery saving
MegaBassBeats by DeHuMaNiZeD
Sony XLoud Audio by XxXPachaXxX
Nexus 4 wallpaper chooser




Changelog:
Code:
2/23/2013
-----------
Added inverted gapps



2/7/2013
-----------
Removed Seeder script and replaced with the actual app that
can be enabled and disabled based on user preference
Changed kernel to stable Mason G v0.14
Few modified tweaks here and there
Added Jelly Bean/ICS modded framework and SystemUI (makes it look like JB/ICS)
Added Ice10 theme to complete the look (see install instructions and screenshots)
Removed A2SD so all can enjoy (you can still flash in recovery if you want A2SD)
Much more that I can't think of right now



1/12/2013
-----------
Updated Seeder scripts to latest (includes suspend mode while sleeping)


1/6/2013
-----------
Added MegaBassBeats by DeHuMaNiZeD (better and clearer audio with great bass)
Added Sony XLoud Audio by XxXPachaXxX
Added Nexus 4 wallpaper chooser
Fine tuned battery tweaks for sleep with low power mode (decreases CPU power)


1/5/2013 v1.1
-----------
init.d scripts created for better battery performance, kernel improvements
vm management tweaks
Kernel tweaks implemented
build.prop tweaks (too many to list) added for performance, image quality,battery, RAM utilization for apps
sysctl tweaks for improve battery and kernel performance
EXT 4 tweaks for improved I/O
Data speed improvements on 3G, WiMax and WiFi


1/5/2013 v1.0
-----------
Initial Release - Expect more to come! This is just the tip of the ice berg for this. Over time, I will include kernel tweals, build.prop tweaks, init.d and other tweaks to make this faster and more stable.



What does/doesn't work:
Code:
Everything that usually works on CM7




What do I need to run this beast? (preferred but not required):
Code:
Suggested SmelkusMod recovery to ensure proper flashing
Partitioned SD to EXT 4 - I include A2SD which is baked in as well as EXT 4 tweaks for improved I/O which leads to better performance for A2SD. This helps apps open faster and makes everything seamless.

Looks like the EVO is picking up,not losing ground,you guys are killing it,nice work brother.Great to see more keeping the EVO alive.

Looks like i got first on this one guys,hahahaha.

If you guys would like to know about this seeder tweak app,read what the dev wrote about it...

On some (older) versions of Android, the JVM (and other components) read large amounts of random data from the blocking /dev/random device. On newer builds, this problem has been solved, yet depletion of the input entropy pool still seems to slow devices.

So, I cross-compiled rngd, and used it to feed /dev/urandom into /dev/random at 1 second intervals.

Result? Significant lag reduction!

Chrome, maps, and other heavy applications switch instantaneously, and map tiles populate as fast as I can scroll. You know how sometimes when you hit the home button, it takes 5-10 seconds for the home screen to repopulate? Yeah. Blocking on read of /dev/random. Problem solved. But don't take my word for it .. give it a shot!

This version fixes the issue some users were seeing on later Jellybean ROMs, where the UI would misreport the RNG service status.

Note that this APK is actually compatible with all Android versions, and all (armel) devices. It's not at all specific to the Captivate Glide.

Caveats

There is a (theoretical) security risk, in that seeding /dev/random with /dev/urandom decreases the quality of the random data. In practice, the odds of this being cryptographically exploited are far lower than the odds of someone attacking the OS itself (a much simpler challenge).
This may adversely affect battery life, since it wakes every second. It does not hold a wakelock, so it shouldn't have a big impact, but let me know if you think it's causing problems. I can add a blocking read to the code so that it only executes while the screen is on. On the other hand, many of us attribute lag to lacking CPU power. Since this hack eliminates almost all lag, there is less of a need to overclock, potentially reducing battery consumption.
There has been a large amount of speculation on why/if this actually improves performance on ICS+ devices.

Its amazing. My thread in General is a testament to that. Mind you as of now there are no additional battery tweaks other than the Mason kernel and user ability to uc. I wanted to get this out as stock first so we can get a good impression on how well this runs without addition build.prop and init.d tweaks. I will be adding battery tweaks for better sleep states, kernel optimization tweaks such as COD and more in the future.

Everyone please leave feedback on how this is running. As I am typing this I am in awe of how responsive it is.

This rom rips, seriously! Underclocked to 245-768 and the phone still felt overclocked. Looks good and looking forward to whatever tweaks you decide to use.

It is. It's a widget that I included called one clock widget. Long hold on the home screen, add widget, its the one named ocw. There are many skins you can choose from. The one I am using is chrome rings I believe. But there is a vast amount of other nice skins as well.
