View Full Version : Deodexed .602, is it actually faster?

Hey all - I just deodexed my .602 install (I was waiting for a liberty .602, contemplating shuji, but just decided to deodex for now) and it seems to me that it runs substantially faster. Granted, my original install seemed a bit buggy. I'm just curious if there's something that would happen in the course of deodexing that would result in a snappier system afterwards (although the boot might take longer). Either the deodexed rom is faster on its own or there was something borked in my install that deodexing fixed. Either way, I'm quite happy with it now, I'm just curious about what may have changed.

Deodexing is only needed if the services.jar needs altering. It actually slows things down, but not noticeably.

Yeah, I deodexed so that I could install crt/lock-bypass/blue battery. I'm coming from running liberty 2x then 0.(7,8,9) after I jumped to GB. I've been shying away from the 2nd-init world because battery life is one of the most important variables for me. So, lacking a new liberty for 0.602, I'm looking around at the other blurry-rom/skin options to change things up a bit.

So, long story short, services.jar wanted some altering as far as I was concerned. Seems like the process may have corrected some flaws in my previous install. Maybe something went just a little wrong in the last sbf/update/root that I did, I was getting sluggish behavior and occasional hangs (not usually resulting in fcs)
