I have been using the Android platform for quite a while now, and while I love it I hate the fact that my 3-year old phone is not receiving updates anymore. I fixed this by installing custom roms, but those are sometimes a bit much for my old and slow phone. Overclocking works wonders for this, but to speed up Android even more, it is time to install a Android Supercharger Script!
What is an Android Supercharger Script
Speeding up a phone always sounds good, but running scripts? Android Supercharger? what in the world am I talking about and what are the downsides? I’ll explain it nice and simple. A supercharger script is a script that completely redo’s the way your Android phone handles it’s memory. It adjusts values for when to kill apps, and rearranges the priority and maximum load. I have to admit, I don’t know how it manages, but when running a supercharger script my Android phone become more stable and considerably snappier and faster!
The best part is that this android supercharger script will work for every Android based phone out there! And there are no downsides!
How to apply an Android supercharger script to speed up your phone
My phone becoming faster and snappier without any downsides? It must be immensely hard to install! False! It couldn’t be easier! When you have the proper files it just as simple as installing an app. Before we continue make sure you install the following apps and have root access:
And you should download this android supercharger.txt file and place it on your SD-card preferably in the root folder.
After that you should run busybox installer and install version 1.8.2 of busybox. After it installed run script manager. Select run as root and load your supercharger.txt file. Of course you need to allow the root access. If needed reselect run as root, but NEVER select run on boot. Save the settings and select run. After that you will get a screen that reminds of the old DOS with its black background and white text. First it asks you what scroll speed you want to use. it doesn’t really matter which you choose, but I usually go for 0 because this sets everything to instant. You can enable your onscreen keyboard by tapping the screen. on the next screen you get 19 options on which kind of memory optimalization you want for your phone. It is pretty much a trial and error for which ones work best for your phone. The aggressive ones make your phone even faster but may cause slight instability. I usually choose option 9 – MegaRAM 2 which keeps your phone stable but speeds it up by quite a lot.
After selecting the option you want it is needed to reboot your phone. Keep the script running in the background and reboot the phone. After it is booted back up again redo the entire cycle from when you first used script manager and this time it should say that it is ‘bulletproof’. Basically it is saying that it is working this time around. Close the screen but select ‘run in background’. You have to run this script every time you reboot your phone. Therefore I would suggest installing the Script Manager widget to enable quick activation of the script. You can do this after you completely installed the script and have it up and running. The widget is available in the market.
Make sure you remember to give the supercharger script root access and rerun it every time you reboot your Android phone. Find the official XDA-Forum topic here!
