Here it is the thread you all been waiting for, these simple tools and freely avaliable software will turbo charge your X1 into the stratosphere, safely, consistantly and error free, upto 8 X faster !!!

To check these wild claims use SKTools 5 supplied here, within there is a benchmark program to test key paramenters like Video speed and Memory Card speeds, run benchmark a few times to get a consistant reading.

SKTools5.CAB

To find the Bench mark Program: Click Catagory at the bottom, then Information, then you will find the benchmark program.

1) Turbo charge your micro SD card.

tnyynt SD TuneUP.cab

This simple program written by XDA developers will increase the read speed of your micro SD card by a facter of 8 !

Benchmark before program: Read Speed: 2,000 approx
Benchmark after program: Read Speed: 16,000 approx

2) Turbo charge your graphics

Within SkTools5 there is a program called Optimize, it is under the first catagory : Standard. It will automatically pick 3 settings that can be adjusted, tick Font Cache Size and TCP window size. Then click the Action button at the bottom, make sure Performance is ticked and then click Optimize. The program will then do a soft reset.

Using Benchmark: Draw bitmaps: before Optimize: around 180, pathetic ! a 5 year old can draw faster than that.
Using benchmark: Draw bitmaps: after Optimize : around 780 - wow ! i-robot speed ha ha

Thats 4 X graphics - its smokin !

3) General performace tweaks

Schaps_AdvancedConfig_v2.0.2.0.CAB

Using Advanced Configuration settings, under performances check these settings.

File System Cache: Enabled
File System cache size: 8mb
File system filter cache: 16384 sectors
Glyph cache: 32 kb

The effect of all these tweaks and enhancements means I can play 800 x 480 video perfectly just like TV, and Touch 3D is silky smooth and fast.

These are not idle claims, my X1 has vastly improved performance all round, I am finally happy with my X1, it rocks, bring on that iphone and our 'cuz' the Touch HD.

With this site.
And a bit of insight.
Through our will.
And XDA Developer skill.
The X1 is...the king of the hill

Don't see much of a difference but then again i had most of these tweaks already in with the exception of the sd card read/write speed increase.

I did these tweaks and like Bxsteez only the SD card read speed increased.. from around 2000kb to 15-16k kb... However the bitmat draw speed was already 781 from the start.. perhaps there are ways to evern further increase it?
And what more can we do?

Thank you so much!

Increasing the filesystem cache improved my file navigation. The Windows folder used to take a long time to display, now it's faster.

Can't see much improvement on the display though. BTW, any trade offs in terms of battery life with the tweaks?

Thanks for the tnyynt SD TuneUP.cab and it indeed make the Micro SD Card reading faster.

However, the Advanced Config program is not so good compared to another version I have as I cannot find many section like the calendars etc.

Thanks for your effort anyway.

Can anyone say what the dispaly/graphics tweaks do? Are they modifying certain registry entries?

Could someone tell us what is exactly changed, so we don't need to download that program, and can manually edit the registry entries?

Same for the SD Card tweak, what exactly is being changed here?

For learning for us all, I think it is much more interesting and important to know what is being done and being applied so we can learn from it and improve further, than just blindly install .CAB files!

I believe you can use advanced config to do all of those tweaks with the exception of the sd card tweak. I have no idea what is being done there.

Cool The fastest X1 in the west !
After all your tweaking and performance enhancements, its time to put your X1's on the track. Tick all 6 benchmark catagories in SKTools5 and run the test, if anyone consistantly gets higher than any of these results please post your results, and any explanation or tools you may have to help us all improve.

Rules, there are none, may the fastest X1 win !

Custom Roms entries are welcome , any smokin hot rods out there ?

I have a stock Rom with a 16 gb sd card
Phone and wifi ( traction control ) off

Integer: 329
Floating point :7.47
Ram access:1519
Draw Bitmaps:797
Main storage (write):11070
Main storage (read):17066
Storage card (write): 483
Storage card (read): 16832

Can you brake the 800 barrier on Bitmaps ?
Can your SD card out run the 17,000 sound barrier
