Hey peoples,

Just thought I'd make a quick guide to how to make your Android phone boot up faster without hibernation and 3rd party apps (which don't really help much!)

This is super easy and quick to do.

#################
# Requirements! #
################

  • A rooted Android phone with root browser or similar app

###############
# Instructions! #
##############

Using root browser, navigate to system -> build.prop. Scroll down to the bottom and enter this line:

Code:
ro.config.hw_quickpoweron=true

Save build.prop and next time you turn your device on it should be considerably faster!




GOOD LUCK!

Here =)
However my line is rare.
I bet I'm not the only one who knew exactly what this was before even opening the thread. ;)
Darn it - didn't work for me on my SGH-T999 (S3 on t-mobile)
The thing to remember with build.prop edits is that they can be hit and miss and as shown in the past some don't seem to do anything at all, they can even have an adverse effect if you don't know what you're doing.

I didn't put that in because its common knowledge. However my line is rare.

Your line will help but i personally love boot animations :eek:

Not to be funny but your line is not rare, pimp my rom has been out for some time and it add the hardware line to build.prop and that line is found in a lot of tweaks I came by ijs.

you can also disable the boot animation .... this will help a little bit to gain speed....

put this line in build.prop:

debug.sf.nobootanimation=1

I tried the other one but I didn't see a significance in boot speed. I'm going to try this one too. I notice my boot animation is the main thing consuming boot time. SO maybe this and the other it should show a difference.

Thanks for the tip!

I tried it and although I miss the boot animation, there was a difference in boot time. Thanks Buddy!:good:

Neither worked for me

Both of those changes didn't work. The boot animation still occurred and my time got slower on the first change.

I have a Galaxy Tab 3 7"
