Caution:
Please read the thread carefully before you flash it into your system.
Adrenaline Boost may terminate your app like alarm ! One have reported to me that Adrenaline Boost terminated his alarm and almost make him lose his job because of woke up late
Proceed with your own risk ! :eek:

For those who have already use my Adrenaline™ CPU Control, this is already included in the flashable zip package , so no need flash this again !



Description
This script act like an nitrous boost for your Ace.
It helps you to clear your system cache, get more free ram for you and gravely boosts your phone's performance ! :eek:

*Best use before gaming/benchmark ! :D




How it works?
Your phone's ram usage will get higher and higher everyday then you will find your ace become an @SS because it's turtle speed and only reboot fix this problem.
Our android os create system cache everyday, but after one day or so, those old caches are not longer in use but the os continuously create newer cache that's why the ram get heavier and heavier everyday !
Adrenaline Boost help you to clear those caches ! So you won't have to reboot again ! :D




For those who have sharp eyes may find your battery life decreased. WHY?:confused:
Adrenaline Boost clear your system cache and your cpu will work harder to build back needed cache.
Some have reported to me that the Opera browser crash after boost when open over 3 tabs.
You system need caches to work , this boost is intended to clear old cache that are no longer using and let the system to build new cache, so if u boost it too often , your cpu will be very busy building needed caches and may consume more battery than normal ! :rolleyes:
Boost it only when it's needed then there will be no problem ! :D

yea i found out that after zeppelinrox told me he also have include this in his v6
but i think this is more convenient to use for those who want this feature only but not the whole v6 ;)

The new Supercharger allows to make a separate Fast_Engine_Flush.sh but meh , I'd use Adrenaline

Herpderp Defy.

i don't quite like the v6 because it nags alot :p
i check my version of v6 (probably too old) last time , it's clear cache function only got
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

so at that time , i decided to make a new one with
Code:
sync;
echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches;
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches;

anyway , thanks for your support :D

You will get lag 9 times out of 10

awesome script but after using does anybody else also feels lags while using some apps and typing in sms and whatsapp ?

Yes of course, you've just flushed your cache! This script will harm performance in most cases except in extreme situations where you will only use one app loaded freshly into memory.

Memory "optimisation" was all the rage on Windows back in the day, and it was a hoax (fully debunked by Mark Russinovitch in his excellent article "The memory optimization hoax"[1]), because 9 times out of 10 the kernel was a better estimator of reused binary data and memory page handling than the clueless user. Now we have the same "optimiser" for android, and I'm pretty sure 9/10 the same logic applies.

Recently these "optimisers" have started hitting the Mac app store, and they have been thoroughly discredited except in very rare use cases, yet naive users write they see more FREE memory (no they don't, they just see the result of readjustment of memory pages that the OS calls free but are no more FREE than they were before...).

Even the article he links to, many comments say this tuneable is for benchmarking, and doesn't help in optimisation in 99% of the cases.

No one has yet proved that flushing clean memory cache magically works better on android than it does on linux/os x/windows. I asked imbawind back in the old thread and his answer showed he "thinks" it works, but has no evidence it does.

Anyway, apart from getting lagginess as the android kernel repopulates useful cache data, nothing gets harmed so if you like the ⚡boosting⚡ placebo™®©℗ then enjoy...

thanks for the loooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnng comment you have typed but all sources you have saw, make you feeeel like a pro are for pc/laptop, arent they?:rolleyes:

yes, you may say 'Android is based on Linux, so if linux blah blah blah , Android are similar blah blah blah'

you asked me, now i ask you: how many ram do we have and how many ram do a pc/laptop have?

are u gonna to tell me that your phone are smoooooth when you have only 60/50/40/30/20/10/5/1 (mb) available left?

but how about pc/laptop? are u gonna to tell me they lag when they used 278mb of ram too ? :)

cache is meant for smoothness in higher spec machines because they may have 2/4gb of ram
like what i have said in first post:
Boost it only when it's needed
only boost when u feel lag then there wont be a problem ! ;)

always remember smartphone isn't exactly same with pc, especially low end smartphone :p

this tuneable is for benchmarking
this is bull**** for SGA, benchmark get even lower score after boost ,why ? benchmark a test for overall system performance, including CPU. we have cleared the ram so the cpu will work hard to create them back, in the other hand, cpu still need to handle the benchmark, thus you won't get higher score in benchmark cuz we only have 800mhz, single core ;)

No one has yet proved that flushing clean memory cache magically works better on android than it does on linux/os x/windows. I asked imbawind back in the old thread and his answer showed he "thinks" it works, but has no evidence it does.
where :confused:
btw, i'm not gonna to bluff you, you can see users' feedback (but sadly many threads have been deleted by moderator, this is a new thread thus u cant see many comment here:( )
anyway, i accept criticism, but at least, you should try urself before leaving a negative comment here ;)

many users(Ace,Fit,Gio,X10,X10 Mini,X10Mini Pro,X8 and many more) who have tried the Arenaline Boost told me that it really work, like more smooth when scrolling :rolleyes:
here are some users' feedback
just shot my ace with themyth rom! its awesome! and i am sure that's not placebo effect! Good one bro!
Worked Perfect :) Thanks alot.

i dont need to say too much, users' review represent everything :D


last, thank for your time to type the long comment, it increase my knowledge cause it make me to google :D

sorry for my english as it's not my primary language :p

it's normal
sometimes u will feel lag when using some apps because it's caches are still in use
after boost, u cleared all in use and not in use cache, cpu need to create it back therefore u will notice some feel lag but it will be much better after a few minutes, then u will notice the overall performance increase :D

Hi imbawind, my comment certainly wasn't personal, thank you for taking the trouble to contribute to these forums. :beer:

I am not a kernel engineer specialised in low-memory systems, and I think neither are you. I do know that a lot of work goes into building the virtual memory system and read/write caches in OSes and people much more knowledgeable and talented than us tune, patch and rewrite the kernel to maximise its use. Google doesn't employ monkeys to slap any old kernel into an OS it has invested a lot of resources into, engineers work on this stuff day and night.

Obviously a smartphone has less memory, but that doesn't mean the relative scale of resource demand to supply is not similar to desktop (smartphone apps don't request huge chunks of memory like desktop apps, so perhaps the % demand isn't so different). But my major conceptual issue is in flushing data from caches applies to smartphones and desktops equally. If the kernel uses that data again (and it has lots of optimisations to manage disk / memory caches), you get a performance hit if you flush.

Regarding what users say -- sorry that certainly doesn't mean it actually "works". A couple of years back I was engaged in a dialog with the developer of a memory optimiser for OS X and he told me lots of users said it worked great, yet when he tried to show me measured evidence, he never could show anything other than negative performance. Lots of people are led by what they are told, it is human psychology and works for advertising since the beginning of time; SuperDuper Product X™ will make your computer better -- then it tells you you have "freed" memory and they don't understand it never freed memory, it just renamed inactive memory pages to free ones so the OS reports more free memory. That is why on the desktop it is called a hoax. It would take a clever computer scientist many iterations of benchmarks to tell us whether /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches really helps or harms smartphone performance and neither you or I or anyone else have that data.

But anyway, as I said above, apart from losing cached data the kernel may have to reread back and slow you down a bit, if people enjoy typing the command and feeling they've done something with this script, then that is great. Remember that placebo medicine is very good medicine, it has a measurable positive effect, and is cheap and invariably harmless ;-)

Yes, I have because this was built-in to Engengis which I used since I first got my Ace, and actually made this command alias in my bashrc file some time ago when I first started playing with terminal:

Code:
alias flush='sync;sleep 1;echo "3" > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches;echo "1" >  proc/sys/vm/drop_caches;sleep 1;echo "==> Cache Flushed <==";'
