Going to try this app for some more lag reduction on my nook color CM 10.1. Just came across this app last week and hesitated on applying it to my nook color, kind of looks like a defragger app in-disguise, and as we know, we should NEVER run a defrag app on a SDD (Solid-state drive) or your flash memory on your internal memory, or eMMC.

Here is the source code for this app here on sourceforge.net. http://sourceforge.n...ects/fstrim/  .

This app is just as controversial as the "enropgy seeder" app, using dark magic programming techniques I covered in my other thread *follow along with me trying to learn how to code* here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is the link up in XDA forums for this app. http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2116225

And this link here is for the app on the playstore. It is a free app. https://play.google....ey.lagfix&hl=en

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So add your comments and opinions on this app guys. And don't be shy. :)  I will give this app a try here in a day or two and report back on whether it works on the nook color on Cyanogenmod 10.1 nightlies and our recent RC (release candidiate.) here in this thread.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some are also reporting this app is also more snake-oil and/or a placebo effect so you will have to be the ultimate judge on whether this app does indeed reduce lag. Here is a page on <fstrimming> on-line here to research over. http://blog.neutrino...vm-and-dmcrypt/

I changed my mind on applying this app. WAY too much discredit in the XDA forums on that above link I gave for this app after reading through the WHOLE thread. I suggest to others not to bother. Most are saying the speed gain is very modest at best. The app probably would not hurt anything but just not going to fiddle around with it and hose something out.

Did not read the whole thread over before starting this thread or I would not have bothered posting it in here. LOL. Seriously not trolling guys, Sry.
