LG Connect Optimizer V1.0 :thrasher:

**ONLY FOR ROOTED PHONES**
**ON SALE 1.99 FIRST WEEK ONLY!, REG 2.99**
SUPPORTED PHONE MODELS:
-LG CONNECT
-Other phones may work, but try at your own risk!

It's time to show your LG Connect where the plug goes! :) This little phone is great but suffers from short battery life, overheating problems and a few other things. This app was made to pick up where LG left off and finish polishing it into a great phone.

Description: :deal:

Features so far:
-Improve battery life, so far the longest I've had with normal use is 19hours but that varies with usage. Typical is around 12-14.
-Speeds up responsiveness so that everything is pretty much instant.
-Smoother scrolling (Still not perfect, but better)
-Reduces heat when playing 3D games (helps with the overheating problem, and prolongs battery)
-faster SDCard speeds *coming in ver 1.1* :listen:
-Remove Built in Junk apps individually (you can choose)
-Not exactly an app feature, but I help users out via email in a timely manner, and I'm very active on Android Forums. I understand some people may not understand exactly what root is and things like that. You can expect a response without attitude or judgement. I'm also open to feedback and actively look for new content to include in my apps.

New features coming soon!, All tweaks added only after passing 24 hour torture tests.



FAQ:
Q) What is root/rooted, what does this mean?
A) Root=God as far as your phone goes. When you buy it you are not God, you are a mere mortal who can do limited things decided upon by the evil LG and MetroPCS corporations. The man!. When you root your phone, you say: Down with the man. Then you can pretty much do as you please with it. It's pretty much a computer in case you weren't aware.

As is tradition, the first week is a buck off :) If anyone runs into any issues, please let me know and I'll take care of them right away.

Thank Les, for the artwork! I'll have a little credits section in there soon!


5/8/2012 V1.1.3
New Tweaks:
-Browser Proxy Settings
-Audio Subsystem Calibration
-Tether Settings (Wifi not working yet)
-Battery Info (temp/health/charge)
-4G Toggle/APN Settings


5/3/2012 V1.1.2
-Added a "Sweet Spot" Setting. This one is what I personally use, if I find something better i'll keep this setting updated. That's what presets are for after all :)

-Added support for the su command being located in /system/xbin as opposed to /system/bin. This should help some advanced users with different phone models that want to try it out, but my app had been telling them their device was not rooted.

-New app Icon, Les- thanx for doing the gfx! Credits coming soon :)

4/23/2011 V1.1.1
-Fixed cpu governor not being set

4/22/2011 V1.1
-Fixed a small start-up bug. I was trying to read a setting that didn't exist yet :)

4/22/2011 V1.0
-The first release!, This is just like the LG Esteem Optimizer except tailored for this phone's needs :)
 
will i be able to overclock my phone

That's dependent on the kernel you use. The stock one doesn't allow overclocking but my app will support choosing speeds that a kernel allows. Knowing PlayfulGod, he'll have the one he's working on finished pretty soon then you can use my app to control the cpu speeds above stock. :)

Kanaida is there a way to set that it runs both cores when the screen is on and 1 core when is off? Let me know if is possible. Also I just got it and I'm getting when I reboot my phone a force closed on the app for some reason.

What does the chuck norris sensor delay cover lol?

The Auto setting does this. Usually the second processor turns on and off as needed, when they screen is not on it's not needed so it gets turned off.
The single core = Forced: 1ON, 1OFF (Trades speed for battery life, maybe use when you're sleeping)
Both = Forced 2ON, 2ON (Used for bragging in benchmarks and wasting battery lol)

As for the force close, try opening the app, changing the cpu preset to anything and then try rebooting to see if it still happens. I think I may be trying to read a setting that does not exist yet. It's 1.0 so i'm sure there's gotta be a minor bug in there somewhere. luckily the google market gives me these reports if people submit them so I can get a more specific cause.

UPDATE: I found the crash report. I'm looking into it, it looks like the start-up service didn't start for some reason. Using any task killers by any chance? The good news is that the service is only to apply CPU settings at boot, same as you clicking on a cpu preset. They stay set while the phone is on.

UPDATE 2: I published v1.1 with a bugfix that should remedy it. Turns out I was trying to read from a settings file that didn't exist yet. Ah, the paradoxes of programming :), also updated the tweaks section with another button for the brightness, forgot to pop that in there before.

Okay i just bought the app in the market, are there any preferred setting to make the best of use for this app, maximizing the phones battery life? Thanks

The CPU Setction:
Battery Preset or 3d Gaming preset

Tweaks Section:
All things checked, for buttons read what's under them. It's things I haven't been able to directly change in my app but can open the right screen for users.
In the display settings button i forgot to write, but click brightness and 'Power Saving'. I will be adding some more of these as soon too.

Bloatware:
Unchecking/Uninstalling all this stuff extends the battery life quite a bit. The only thing I kept was polaris office because it opens excel files etc...

I also wanna add that when i used the bloat ware remover, the apps remained in my app drawer, even after restarting phone

This part shouldn't happen, when you opened the app did you click on "Allow" when the superuser prompt came up? You can open up the superuser app itself to see if it accidentally ended up on the "Deny" list. Or was it just one specific app?

Yea i clicked allow on the super use popup. Its just rhapsody and books

Rhapsody should be able to get uninstalled. If you updated it, you may need to uninstall the updates in Settings\Applications\Manage Applications\Rapsody before it lets you though. I just tried restoring and removing it and it worked ok.

Books I'm not sure if you can get rid of it anymore because it's bundled as part of the new Google Play Market app. It was possible before this upgrade happened across the board. Same applies to Play Musc, Play Movies etc...

forgive me for asking. kind of new to rooting. but what exactly does the chuck norris setting do?...... what settings do you recommend I use.... also out of the ball park. is there really any need for clockwork if you dont plan on putting a custom rom?


Chuck is an easter egg :) from my first app. Not sure if it makes a difference on this phone but i thought id be funny. It does apply the same sensor trick tho.

Clockwork mod is always a good idea. Its like system restore in windows. A clean backup can save you from experiments or trouble later.

I wdote the recommended settings above in a previous post.

It serves the same function pretty much. I have a manual/advanced mode in case you like any 3rd party app for cpu better. It plays nice, whatever you decide. Its hard to say without some experiments. With mine nothing has to be running to work though. I set things at a very low level.

Well for me I love performance, but also like to save battery when idle
