[How To] Boost Your N900 with Speed & Battery Patch !?

Posted on 6:09 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

Hello folks,

It's been a long time i wished to post about it, and here i am with some free time to do it :

- The first tweak (speed) improves the hildon-desktop : faster multitasking , faster contacts scrolling , faster images scroling and basically every thing will be improved

- The second tweak (battery) will change The VFS Cache Pressure value :
To 10 when locked the screen or the system is inactive and 100 when the screen is unlocked or the brightness is on, this will make us have a long standby usage because of vfs=10 and a long continues usage because of vfs=100
 


- Download speedpatch.tar.gz and speedpatch-install.sh.txt 

- Paste Both Files in /home/user/MyDocs

NOTE : MyDocs is Not Documents it is the default root folder of N900 like : Nokia N900/

- Open xterminal and write:

sudo gainroot

apt-get install bash

cd /home/user/MyDocs

bash speedpatch-install.sh.txt


- Then REBOOT when finished everything

PS : Ignore Any Errors appear about device resource busy or any others

********

* To check if Speedpatch was installed :

cd /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/

if no problem appeared about (no such file or directory) then you are fine


********

* Uninstalling speed patch

- Download speedpatch-uninstall.sh.txt

- Save it in /home/user/MyDocs

- Open xterminal and write:

sudo gainroot

cd /home/user/MyDocs

bash speedpatch-uninstall.sh.txt

- Then Reboot


********



- Download betterypatch.tar.gz  and batterypatch-install.sh.txt

- Paste Both Files in /home/user/MyDocs

NOTE : MyDocs is Not Documents it is the default root folder of N900 like : Nokia N900/

- Open xterminal and write:
sudo gainroot

apt-get install dbus-scripts kernel-power-settings

cp /home/user/MyDocs/batterypatch-install.sh.txt /home/user/batterypatch-install.sh.txt

chmod +rwx /home/user/batterypatch-install.sh.txt /home/user/batterypatch-install.sh.txt


********


* To check if Battery Patch was applied :

sudo gainroot

echo 1000 >> /proc/sys/vm/vfs_cache_pressure

Then lock the phone and unlock it

Then

cat /proc/sys/vm/vfs_cache_pressure

you should see 100

If so then the patch is applied !

rm /opt/scripts/cpu_sleep.sh
rm /opt/scripts/cpu_normal.sh
rmdir /opt/scripts
kernel-config load default
kernel-config default default
