I am getting pretty mad at my baby, because it is extremely slow nowadays and is so limited in terms of the Android Market. I constantly run out of app space, things that start at boot are unnecessary, and I would like to further customize my Android experience.
Can rooting do these actions:
1. Overclock to over 1GHz
(a.)Yes with SetCPU on a stock, or UrukDroid customized kernels (The max is 1GHz but some people have stable devices with 1.2GHz kernels, (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1205134
2. Control what starts at boot
3. Change fingerprint (or whatever it's called) to an Android device for more compatibility
4. Change the partition for apps space
(d.)Yes with UrukDroid, you have a choice of 512mb, 1gb, and 1.5gb.
or with Harfainx's stock rom way. (viewtopic.php?f=76&t=54637
5. Other ways to use more RAM than what is provided (probably a pipe dream)
(e.)UrukDroid increases the free memory space, or memory swap but prefer you not to unless you have an sd card that you don't need. Memory Swap uses the external memory as virtual memory but since sd cards aren't built for read and writing like ram does it can kill your external memory device faster. Or with stock rom root you can use Swapper 2.
Also, do I need a new ROM or is it direct, or can I stick with my stock ROM?
(f.)Yes you can use a stock rom. I heard that Archangel still works after a few tries (which doesn't need SDE), but Archos gave a Dual-Boot support for Archos Gen-8 Devices. This is with SDE (http://www.archos.com/support/support_t ... us&lang=en
) that can be used to install stock Rom root (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=930197
). Also UrukDroid. (http://code.google.com/p/urukdroid/
BUT TO LET YOU KNOW ONCE SDE IS INSTALLED IT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY SO IF YOUR DEVICE BREAKS YOU WON'T BE GETTING A REPLACEMENT.
I know this is a lot to ask, but this needs some more life.
(g.)Juice Defender is the best I've known.
