scored 2234 with stock I9000ZSJF7 on my Samsung Galaxy S I9000

after playing with Andriod for a month, I found a way to speed up the Android system by creating loop devices, no data2sd required
no more lags, smooth scrolling/zooming in and out in default browser with a web page contains more than 170 images, much faster cache for browser, market and other apps retrieval and listing

here's how:
- create an empty file with dd (i chose -b 4096 -m 1)
- mount it to loopx and format it with ext2 (busybox)
- create mount points and create links, eg
mount -o rw,noatime,nodiratime /dev/loop0 /dbdata/dbdataimage
then mv files and folders to /dbdata/dbdatimage
so, instead of reading /dbdata/databases/com.1.2.3, it will be linked to /dbdata/dbdataimage/databases/com.1.2.3
- finally write a script to mount them on boot by replacing playlogos1

simply speaking, is to run on an ext2 file block in rfs, and that's all for the trick!!


WARNING:
- i did it for /cache, /dbdata and /data only
- empty files, folders, and sym links will be deleted by the system under /cache
- dont reboot the phone when u've temporarily moved /dbdata/databases to a slow partition like /data


personally, i moved /data/data and /data/dalvik-cache to /dbdata and moved browser and market cache files to /cache

it's not for the benchmark only, instead, it has very good effects on ur phone's io

for the loop device:
busybox mknod /dev/loop0 b 7 0
busybox losetup /dev/loop0 /dbdata/dbdata.img
busybox mkfs.ext2 /dev/loop0
then mount it

and, here's my mount output:

- no need to deal with /data
- the major thing is /dbdata/databases
- it wont have impact when u connect it to ur pc/kies since kies only deal with /sdcard and /sdcard/sd only, which both r out of my concern
- to see the improvement, simply do a dd and u'll see the difference



what suprised me is that, i found in one of the taiwan's forum, ppl called it "Hong Kong's Lag Fix" (香港版卡三爽)
