We have a powerful device but some system tweaks can still bring a more enhanced experience.
I present you XperiatweakZ2 v3.2


S1lDZXR.jpg


Stock rom .167 rooted (deodexed or not) or eXistenZ v4.0.0 & v4.5.0 or MoonWalker Revolution v2.3 & v2.4 is an absolute requirement to use this mod. Stock kernel or Custom kernel.

Features:

1- build.prop add-ons:
- dalvik tweaks
- dns tweaks (removed - see 2nd post)
- 100% jpeg quality
- force 2D & 3D GPU rendering
- performance tweaks
- battery tweaks

2- Scripts :
- cleaner
- remount optimized
- eMMC readahead increased (optional)
- conservative governor (optional) for all cores, better performances than stock ondemand or interactive
- kill media server at boot
- darky zipalign of apps and system apps,
- databases optimized by sqlite3

Requirements:
- Stock rom 4.4.4 /.167 rooted or eXistenZ v4.0.0 / v4.5.0 or MoonWalker Revolution v2.3 / v2.4
- Busybox
- Smanager (if you have [NUT]'s XZDualRecovery (this is the case with rom eXistenZ), busybox is already installed and don't update it or you will lose recovery)

The mod is stable. But as said: it's at your own risk blablabla blabla...

Installation:
1- Do a backup in recovery first,
2- Flash XperiaTweakZ2_v3.2_Stock167.zip (stock .167) or XperiaTweakZ2_v3.2_eXistenZ_vxxx.zip or XperiaTweakZ2_v3.2_MoonWalker_Rev_vxxx.zip, and reboot
Only for MoonWalker Revolution: delete scripts 1 to 7 in /system/etc/init.d
3- Open SManager and select the scripts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 in /system/etc/XperiatweakZ2,
Set script 1 & 2 as "su" and "boot" and don't forget to save the configurations,
Script 3 (readahead): set as "su" and "boot", unless you already have your own readahead settings in Fauxclock (or another app),
Script 4 (conservative governor): set as "su" and "boot", unless you already have your own governor settings in another app,
Set script 5 as "su" and "boot" (only for Stock rom, script already present in eXistenZ rom),
For script 6 & 7 (zipalign & sqlite), set them as "su" but not "boot", it's better to schedule it to run once a week rather than at each boot (advanced settings in SManager).
4- Reboot and enjoy :)
If v3.1 was previously installed and configured in SManager: backup first and just flash v3.2

Note: do not use these scripts as init.d scripts, some of them won't work.

Future updates of the mod: I'll keep this mod updated with the next firmwares. Some tweaks may be added. Suggestions are welcome...

Updates:
- 03/03 (v3.2): support for rom MoonWalker Revolution v2.4
- 03/02 (v3.2): support for rom MoonWalker Revolution v2.3
- 19/01 (v3.2): support for rom MoonWalker Revolution v2.0
- 16/01 (v3.2): support for rom eXistenZ v4.5.0
- 30/12 (v3.2): conservative governor for all cores, various little fixes, support for eXistenZ v4.0.0
- 14/11 (v3.1): zipalign of priv-app apps fixed + support for rom eXistenZ v3.1.5
- 12/11 (v3): missing zipalign fixed, zipalign of priv-app apps, kill media server script added, new battery and performances tweaks
- 08/11 (v2): support for stock rom 4.4.4 / FW .167
- 14/10 (v2): support for rom eXistenZ v3.1.5
- 29/07 (v2): support for firmware .314 - eMMC readahead increased (optional) - conservative governor (optional)

Change your DNS with DNS Changer (Upd 13/10):

Using alternative nameservers like Google DNS or OpenDNS can dramatically speed up your browsing. You can also bypass local DNS filters.
A DNS tweak was included in XperiatweakZ2, but it does not longer work. I propose to use the app DNS changer, which works perfectly.

Instructions:
- Install DNS Changer,
- launch the app,
- select primary DNS: US - Google 1 (whatever your country), i.e. 8.8.8.8,
- select Alternate DNS: US - Google 2 (whatever your country), i.e. 8.8.4.4,
- Go to the app settings,
- Check Auto apply for Wifi and for 3G,
- Check Auto set primary DNS,
- Choose from available: US - Google 1,
- Check Auto set alternate DNS,
- Choose from available: US - Google 2,
- Enjoy :)

Now, browsing may be faster and the selected DNS will persit after reboot.

Hi Nreuge. Happy to see you here too with your mode's. :)

I try to install your mod, but after download, install Busybox and restart the phone, i loss the dualtouch recovery on Pilz.
How to flash this tweak, if i don't have recovery?
I reinstall it again /i mean recovery/ , but I do not risk again unless I miss something important.

I am on stock rooted 4.4.2.

Thanks for your work Nreuge.

Hi, happy to see you here too :)

I really can't figure out what's happened... quite weird!
Yes, reinstall recovery and flash my mod.
Anyway, your backup will be still here.

Hi! New to the rooting scene. I haven't rooted my Z2 yet but I'm planning to do so very soon. What do you mean by 100% jpeg quality and other performance tweaks? Plus, I don't have to unlock my bootloader, right? Just run towelroot?

Tried it out myself. Rooted using Easyroot, installed via recovery. Works like a charm! :D
