The following awesome mod was created by XDA Member danutzz.

Donations can be made to him for his work by clicking this link: DONATE TO DANUTZZ

To thank him on xda simply click this!: Thank You Danutzz!

This is a flashable build.prop script, that he thought he'd share with everyone. This script will take your phone to the extreme, and make it feel like new. Everything is faster, even web browsing. Also, some minor battery tweaks are included, which might allow you to see some increase in battery life!

The script will add various tweaks that he's found while scouring the interwebs. Most of those tweaks included in this mod can be found here.

Some developers may have already added these tweaks into their roms, but he has not seen a rom that had them all. The script will not duplicate any lines in the build.prop file to avoid confusion/issues.

**Please note: testing is limited, as he'd only run this using Amon Ra recovery.
That said, a backup of the build.prop file will be created in the "/system/" directory called "build.prop.old". If you have any issues, you can always revert back with a simple adb command or using root explorer app.

**This should work on any rom that has busybox

**v2 can be flashed over v1, it will not overwrite your original build.prop(.old)

**might have to turn off data then turn back on after flashing v2

**added busybox symlink fix script found here. Need someone having issues to test this and confirm.

PRO's (may be different, on a per rom basis)
- overall smoothness of launcher (sense,nova,golauncher, etc.)
- faster internet speeds (speedtest.net app)
- better touch response (this was downgraded in v2 because of battery life complaints, but he set his back up (see changelog, post 2))
- faster application load times ("where's my water" takes about 1/10th of load time for him than prior to tweaks)

CON's (may be different, on a per rom basis)
- system becomes un-responsive after a while, must reboot to run fine again. (his hypothesis is that some roms are not setting minfree handlers, and the system runs out of memory.)
- system may be unresponsive for GB rom users (remove the line "video.accelerate.hw=1" from the system/build.prop file [near the end of file])

Disclaimer:
As always, use at your own risk. He and Android Revolutions are not responsible for anything that might happen to your phone.

Requirements before install:
- Must be rooted
- Rom must have busybox

Installation
- download zip onto phone
- reboot into recovery
- (do not wipe anything! this is not a rom!)
- flash the zip
- reboot
- ????
- profit!

If you have any additional tweaks, or if you see that he has some settings that may be incorrect, please let me or him know! We're always trying to take our phones to the extreme!

Un-Installation
- use root explorer:
- go to "/system/" folder
- delete "build.prop"
- rename "build.prop.old" to "build.prop"
- reboot

Change log:

v2 (6/2) -
- added 4g network tweaks
- modified "windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec" to 150 (try to save some battery life)
this change might reduce performance a little, if you want you can modify the value back to 240

v1 (6/1) -
- initial

Thanks danutzz!
