    They are also using these on the XV6800 and Cody has made it so there is a Remove Program option in the Remove programs in settings.

    installed it tonight. haven't had it installed long enough to see if the battery life is any better, but it certainly seems to have made the i760 a little more peppy.

    The "battery" tweaks are for protocols, and one in particular is for the wired serial port and one for the infrared serial. There are none on the i760. Then the l2tp is for vpn. The third one PPTP (point to point) might have an effect, I'd have to measure to know for sure.

    Regarding the performance tweaks, I would do 1 and 3, but I would be careful about caching FAT. If you do, make sure you always power off the phone before you swap microSD cards. I still wouldn't do it.

    So could this be considered a danger to the phone in any way, and are the effects reversible? And would those of you who've tried it consider it worth it?

    Thanks.

    bumping an old thread.....


    i'm completely new to this... was noticing my 760 was a bit slow at times... looks like this may speed it up...

    now i don't know how to hack... do i just need to install the cab file for this?
