Totally worth it! Maybe it's not really because of entropy (according to some reviewers and sites/blogs) but the results are instant and even an old phone will feel amazing. I love this app! Edit: Been using this app for at least a couple weeks and it just keeps getting better. I haven't noticed battery drain and I don't even use software for that (no task killers or such). People complaining are probably having other issues not related to this tweak. For reference, I am using a Samsung Galaxy Captivate using Slim Bean.
This definitely works to improve performance, mainly regarding IO and Memory Read/Write speed according to my benchmarks. My phone sure "feels" faster too. However, it does have a negative impact on graphics, with some tests showing a frame rate drop of nearly 48FPS (from 56 to 8-9). I don't know why this is, but I suspect that it could have to do with how Android allocates memory. TL;DR: Is it worth it? I'd say so. But there's some situations where I would want to turn Seeder off. (And you can do that quite easily in the app)
Wonderfully done! I was skeptical when I first installed this app especially because it's running constantly in the background. I thought for sure it would be a drain on the battery. I was wrong! No change in battery life and all my apps launch quicker and smoother. Absolutely the best thing I've ever put on my phone.
Bandaid for rebooting This app works sometimes but other times can actually cause more lag. When I first installed it, the app definitely seemed to give my Galaxy Nexus running CyanogenMod 10.1.2 a little boost. After leaving it on for a day or so, the phone was lagging up in a game that previously hadn't had any problems. I disabled it and the game sped right up. Perhaps the best use is to enable and then disable it to give your device the best of both worlds.
Wow! I don't know how this works, but it works! I've been trying for years to make my devices snappy and fast... To no avail. Tried everything: cache cleaners, memory cleaners, you name it. Until I found this by chance. Oh, boy, first time I see my note galaxy fly. And I only got 362 my left in my ram! It's amazing. Try it. You won't regret it.
Real boost! (Update. Causes my phone to freeze until rebooted now. Tested phone with and without Seeder on. Seeder is definitely the issue.) I definitely noticed an improvement in lag right away. Tested the phone with and without this app and there is a big difference. Just because we don't know why it works does not mean it doesn't work.
New RNG performance profiles: Light / Moderate / Aggressive (controls RNG seeding frequency). Moderate and aggressive modes may slightly increase battery usage if suspend-on-sleep is disabled.
I/O queue extension increases MMC request queue size and expiry period, which helps reduce lag under heavy I/O.
- NEW: I/O queue extension
- NEW: RNG power-saving control
- NEW: RNG service performance profiles
- FIXED: Root detection fails on some devices
