DX/D2 tweaks new version (man it's been a while)

Sorry guys, I've been pretty busy developing kernels for thunderbolt in the recent weeks in my spare time. Which i don't have a lot of due to a full time job (in case someone from work is reading this). ;)

Here's an updated zip for DX/D2 users.  If you're already on thunderbolt, you shouldn't have to flash this zip (although it won't fail) - you should be flashing my kernels instead!  If you're on someone else's kernel and flashing this zip to get my tweaks shame on you! :-)

v7.1 (download)

To verify that all the tweaks are in place:
  1. Open Terminal Emulator
  2. su
  3. checktweak.sh
 CHANGELOGS
v7.1
  1. Latest busybox compiled by yours truly.
  2. Modified enable scripts to work on GB ROMs.
  3. Easier to run check script (see above).
  4. SD card speed boost.
NOTE: the latest version has been tested on Gingerbread only.  Should work fine on Froyo but hasn't been tested. Also, if you're running ZombieStomped there's no need to flash.

NOTE to D1 users: Been working with Liquid to develop kernels for D1 as well.  Still work in progress.

  3. Thanks man! Installing now on Liberty .5. I'll post back if I run into issues.

  4. Tried installing on Liberty 0.5 (GB .591) and got the following errors:

    Sysctl tweaks are not enabled!
    /data/imoseyon/checkimosy.sh: line 20: pgrep: not found
    Crond is not enabled!
    ---
    One ore more mods are not enabled. I suggest that you....

    When I run the suggested script, it gives me errors about grep not found, can't create files because they already exist and read-only file system errors.

  5. Brady,

    Run this script in the terminal:

    sh /data/imoseyon/enable.sh

    Reboot.

    That's what I did on my DX Liberty GB v0.5 and then everything worked.

  6. Hi Bradley,

    I tried that and when I do I get errors about grep not found, can't create files because they already exist and read-only file system errors.

  7. This really fixes all the sluggishness in GB with 6.21! Just taking a quick look I'm guessing it's due to the change in minfree.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah i believe the former values were too aggressive for GB.

  9. Just installed ZombieStomp 1.7 over GB .595. Will installing the latest busybox or Market Fix affect the Imoseyon scripts that are included with that ROM?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Market Fix? no. Busybox, possibly but i doubt it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The only reason I ask about the Market Fix (for Gingerbread) is it modifies the Build.prop file.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks so much the tweaks kick a★*! Can you overclock or will overwrite the tweaks?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I noticed on ZombieStomp 1.7, prior to installing the tweak (because the instructions say there's no need to flash it), I ran su > checktweak.sh and the file was not found. So I decided to flash the zip and run the command again, receiving the everything is ok notice.

    I look forward to testing this over the long weekend!

  14. I can't get these tweaks to stick, I have flashed them, manual install everything is fine until I reboot any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  15. after installing GB .596 on my DX I get this after install....

    / # checktweak.sh
    Minfree tweaks are not enabled!
    expr: syntax error
    Sysctl tweaks are not enabled!
    Crond is not enabled!
    ---
    ash: 4: unknown operand
    Everything is good!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I believe it is the busybox that P3 included in /system/bin. Removed it and now everything works great...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Does the remove /etc/init.d/99imoseyon and reboot method work for disabling these tweaks? Also, will milestone overclock have any effect after flashing this?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I updated to GB .596 yesterday on my DX. I used Busybox Installer and installed 1.19 to system/xbin(time stamped Aug 2008???) and I also have another Busybox in system/bin(time stamped today). Now according to JRummy's busybox Installer I have version 1.19 in /xbin. Does it matter having both since i ran the check for imoseyon(su>checktweaks.sh>and it said Everything is good? Im not having any issues. All my root apps are working properly. Should I delete one of these? How can i tell which version is in /bin?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'd just delete them both as the tweak will install busybox anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  20. A Big Thank You to STIK! That was the ticket!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm getting the same thing

    after installing GB .596 on my DX I get this after install....

    / # checktweak.sh
    Minfree tweaks are not enabled!
    expr: syntax error
    Sysctl tweaks are not enabled!
    Crond is not enabled!

    ash: 4: unknown operand
    Everything is good!

  22. You guys need to mount System and Sd Card in recovery on the DX for it to install properly! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. No issues installing or running in Broodcomb 4.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Is there any reason NOT to install this over Liberty 0.8? I know it already includes some Imoseyon scripts, but are those scripts tweaked particularly for Liberty, or can I get some extra mileage with the tweaks on this page?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've installed with mounting the sd card and system and without, deleted busybox from /bin and installed the .zip, and installed busybox .19 in /xbin,too. No matter what I do I get "minfree tweaks not enabled ash: 4: unknown operand
    Everything is good!" cron appears to be working.

    ReplyDelete
  26. brady, i don't think it will hurt, but if the rom has built in support for some of my tweaks the benefits will be hardly noticeable.

    9wire, try running this command (as su):

    busybox --install -s /system/xbin

    ReplyDelete
  27. K, did that, then when I ran checktweak it said syscontrol not enabled cron not enabled, suggested I manually enable and gave the script. Did that, rebooted, all good now.
    Appreciate your hard work, and personally following up. I deal with all kinds of not nice people, and what amounts to total strangers in the modding community go out of their way to help. Thank you, sir.

  28. Pkill zygote command doesn't do anything from the scheduled time but does in emulator. Can I change the time to the evening and what would be the format.

    ReplyDelete
  29. any idea if these tweaks work or are needed on cm4dx???

    ReplyDelete
  30. How do you disable these tweaks if need be?

    ReplyDelete
  31. joshua, the 2nd number is what you need to change. 24 hour format.

    shaun, i think they should work fine on cm

    thomas, remove /etc/init.d/99imoseyon

    ReplyDelete
  32. how the og droid kernels coming along?

    ReplyDelete
  33. what is the benefit for having this? does it have to do with the ram mentioned earlier?

    ReplyDelete
  34. No matter what I do I can't get checktweak.sh to work. I get the same error as db306. I tried installing it with /system and the sdcard mounted, tried the busybox command, and still no dice. I'm running Darkslide X (a .596 rom).

    ReplyDelete
  35. I cannot get this either, says minfree isn't enabled and sysctl isn't enabled.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Does these tweaks work for the new .602 update for the DX? If not, is there anyway that we can get tweaks for this new version? It's the only thing holding me back from updating.

    ReplyDelete
  37. EDIT: I can confirm that "Everything is Good" in terminal emulator after flashing the tweaks and running checktweak.sh.

  39. Running Gingerbread .602 on my DX, I was unable to get crond to work...seems to be an issue with your compiled busybox v1.19??

    ReplyDelete
  40. Actually now I am having trouble. I updated naturally to the newest .602 update and rooted using the new one click DROID 3 method, deleted any old busybox file and flashed the tweaks CWM, no luck after check in terminal. I'm thinking it might also be an issue with the compiled busybox, dont know for sure tho.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Agreed, it is a busybox issue for sure....running version 1.17.2 with no problems...I hope he can make a new working .zip for .602 :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Will.this play well with cyanogenmod 7: cm4dx (nightly 96)

    Still kernel 32

    Or would the dev flavor of cm4dx be a better playtime match?

    ReplyDelete
  43. It would be grand if something akin to

    Sysctl Config

    Would provide a gui to allow users a fine range to fiddle with your tweaks

    Yes?

    ReplyDelete
  44. List of ALL tweaks? And description / explanation

    ReplyDelete
  45. Awesome tweak. I've had it on my phone for a couple minutes and I'm already noticing smoother performance. My homescreen scrolling got a little laggy with live wallpapers, no longer have that issue. My unlocking at the lock screen is also smoother.

    DX running LibertyGB v0.9.
