Use this magical app to get rid of all lag in your Android device
posted by Ray S. / Jan 23, 2013, 7:12 AM
LagFix (fstrim), as is the full name of this geeky piece of software, is based on the Fstrim Linux tool, which has the same purpose. Basically, when the user is trying to execute a task, the LagFix app attempts to inform the device's memory controller about the free storage blocks that can be used to write data on at the current moment. Alternatively, in the typical case (which is when you don't have LagFix installed), the memory controller has to "ask" the system about the free storage blocks, and the whole system stops responding for a while (usually less than a second) until the memory controller gets its "answer". So that's how the tool is supposed to work, but will it really work for you? Well, you'll really have to try it on your specific device in order to be sure, but as it seems most of the users who have tried it are very pleased with the results they have achieved.
If you are experiencing problems with the lag, and wish to give LagFix a try, you can download it here!

yes you can. my Droid Razr MAXX HD is rooted and it also has a bootstrap recovery so i can dual boot into the unofficial CM10.1 beta should i chose to. i've rooted all of the Motorola devices i've owned to date and all of them have had locked bootloaders. quit spreading such misinformed information troll.

No big deal. If you're concerned enough about your android phone. You should atleast have the knowledge of rooting it. I wanted to throw my GS2 and buy and iphone but cm10 changed my opinion completely. However, I agree with you.

You are clearly the most weak person here in PhoneArena.com. There are millions & millions of phones that were sold BEFORE Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was introduced. This app is clearly intended for those millions & millions of Android users who are running anything below Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Everyone who has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean knows Project Butter is wonderful. If you really have no clue then please spare us your ridiculous comments. You really hurt your cause when you open your petty little mouth. Educate yourself before you talk. lol

Funny...I didnt need it for my Droid X after the GB update. I didnt need it for my RAZR and Maxx HD. I didnt need it for the G Nex or Rezound either. Alot of what ppl complain about with Android is home screen scrolling. Changed the launcher on my Droid X1 before the GB update...and all was well. Lock screen too. Its a shame sometimes you have to do that for some phones.....but home screen scrolling and the lock screen does not equal the entire user experience. Also...Moto has been notoriously bad with a choppy gallery app. They finally got it better...something Samsung and HTC had right almost from day one.
