View Full Version : Throttle and Optimization Hacks: Confusion Abounds

02-15-2011, 11:16 AM
Hi guys, Iím getting a bit confused about all the hacks that seem to be popping up recently (both throttle hacks and optimization hacks). There seems to be some overlap so Iím hoping someone can kinda explain where different hacks overlap and what my best option is. Iím going to use rubix 1.9.7 in this post b/c itís what Iím running right now, but just an fyi for others, similar hacks exist for liberty and apex (and probably others as well).

From the rubix 1.9.7 thread at droidforums (rubiX Focused 1.9.7, back and better than ever - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/drod2169-x/119552-rubix-focused-1-9-7-back-better-than-ever.html)) there is the throttle-removing hack for rubix 1.9.7 specifically listed right in the OP. It seems to be the least desirable, as it apparently is necessary to factory reset in order to apply it.

This thread over at droidforums (DXC's Throttle Modding Made Easy - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-roms/122783-dxcs-throttle-modding-made-easy.html)) offers a universal (aka not just rubix) method to remove the throttle. I have adb already installed so that isnít an obstacle for me, but might be for some.

Hereís this thread with a bunch of dedicated (rubix only) zip files to remove the throttle (and other stuff like the clock if so desired): http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/17159-mod-rubix-1-9-7-no-data-throttle-battery-icon-clock-debugging-icon.html

Finally, thereís this thing which Iím not even certain does remove the throttle (can anyone give a definitive y/n on this?): imoseyon: I Got a ZIP (http://www.imoseyon.com/2011/02/i-got-zip.html)

So those are the main links Iíve found pertaining to removing the throttleÖ Can anyone explain which of these throttle removing options is the best?

When it comes to battery and performance optimization, there are a number of threads around on how to diy, however instead of picking those out, Iíd like to put forth the conjecture that the above link to the ďI GOT ZIPĒ is most likely the easiest/best way to handle that type of modding. From what I can tell, it encompasses almost all of the hacks that youíd want to do yourself in one convenient zip. Is that a fair assessment?

Finally, will any of these measures conflict with one another in any way? (obviously Iím not referring to applying more than one throttle remover)

Moving per OP request...

Bump. Would love some feedback from some of you knowledgeable members! :)

They just put it into Apex 1.4 by default now. Can't speak to Rubix but basically a file is altered to allow the hack and you replace the default file with the altered one. Not sure if there is a "best" answer as they all do the same thing.

Thanks for the response. Do you know whether that imoseyon zip has the throttle hack? If not, can you tell if it would interfere with it? I'd like to apply both the optimizations and the throttle hack but I don't want to have anything conflicting....

The data throttling and imoseyons zip are seperate. Install both if need be.

Fyi, the imoseyon hack seems to break quickclick for rubix.... Not sure whether it would interfere with the paid version from the market or not...

Nope i use the paid version and apex has the settings buily in. I have no issues

It appears that he recently released a dedicated rubix version. I'm gonna try it and see if it resolves the issue.
