doesn't matter if your not using Connectify Slightly smiling Face

Do you get problems with WiFi? or Mobile Data?

Re: [Full Tutorial] How to make Xperia Go ICS Super smooth and fast.

bonesnatch, Well, I use Connectify Pro too when I'm not at home and if I can't find any Wifi zone out. Wifi works fine. But It disconnects at times, like two times in two hours. Then I've to turn off and on the wifi of my phone to reconnect. Weeks ago, I've had to restart the hotspot, I thought it was the phone's fault, but after the Connectify update, this problem was solved. Slightly smiling Face

And I didn't face ANY trouble with Mobile Data, too.

I think you can upgrade your phone, you see, everyone's using Samsung are using JB and we are still stuck with ICS. Dizzy Face You can update your phone. Thanks. Slightly smiling Face

Re: [Full Tutorial] How to make Xperia Go ICS Super smooth and fast.

kenzkee, I have issues with Fast capture too. it takes almost 3/4 seconds to take a shot. Slightly frowning Face Also, I dont't see any difference in image quality, Yeah, 1ghz won't fix the camera.

Anyway, I'm not lucky. My GPS don't work at all. :|

Re: [Full Tutorial] How to make Xperia Go ICS Super smooth and fast.

@xfahim

yoh, hehe i updated my xGO to ICS without rooting it, i'm not having too much problems with my phone at all

The only difference is

1. Fast Capture takes like 2 to 4 seconds

2. Maybe a little laggy but not so much that you'd notice it right away, its mostly on the settings page tho ( i wonder if i should root it )

3. I hate the ICS email client, i can't refresh the combined view of all email addresses

( or i just don't know how to)

Still playing with settings for better performance,

and too bad, still can't install apps to EXT_CRD ( external card ).

If i root my phone what advantages do i get?

I hear lots of good reviews about rooting but they're from Other phones or models,

but not much on xGO

well i want to try those cenogen( or was it xenogen? ) mods that gives cool themes, other than limited themes of Xperia

Best Regards,

Bones

Re: [Full Tutorial] How to make Xperia Go ICS Super smooth and fast.

bonesnatch, Okey. fast capture is SLOW in ICS. By powering up your CPU the time might reduce.

If you root your phone, you can get the full performance of your phone. Slightly smiling Face

And you can uninstall the mail client too. Slightly smiling Face

One thing, have you tried playing Gameloft HD games in ICS? Let me know how that went.

Well, rooted phone is no bad. and if you think about the warrenty, you can easilt unroot the phone using the same tool I mentioned above. There's a lot of app that needs root access. (I mostly use AdAway, which one removes ALL the annoying ad's in Frerware apps. :smileygrinSlightly smiling Face

oh, and thats Cynogen Mod. Dizzy Face Sorry but they hasn't released any mod for our Go, we have too wait. Slightly smiling Face

Fahim.
