 *New optimized kernel and libs by antibyte*
Samdroid Turbo

This release adds a set of optimized libraries and DVM, that
has to be installed with the recovery menu ( apply any zip )
A JIT enabled version will come later.

Changelog :


   - * Rebalanced reniceing of some processes*
   - * Set default powersave governor to "ondemand"*
   - * Applied the VOIP and volume patches*
   - * Added a first set of optimized Android libraries, more to come later.
   - * Added a slightly faster Dalvik Virtual Machine*

*Please dont use Linpack to judge this, its senseless.
Just do some normal tasks and maybe play "Raging Thunder" if you played it
before, to see if its faster
Please install both parts (PDA via Odin and ZIP via recovery) to enjoy the
full perfomance madness.
Please note that the package will clear the dalvik cache,
so the first boot will take longer. None of your apps or data will be

Just if installing this should trigger a nearby factory to explode :
You try this at your own risk, this is


stuff, and it is even partly untested.

Kernel : 

TurboLibs : 

Remove TurboLibs:

Not done yet. A package to remove TurboLibs will be at this placeholder
later. *

1. MapView and Zoom Control in 0.9 SDK


I am trying to show the zoom controls over a MapView in the new 0.9

I have been able to show the zoom Control View using the following
         // Zoom View
        View zoomView = mMapView.getZoomControls();
        zoomView.setLayoutParams(new ViewGroup.LayoutParams

Using this code, I have been able to show the Zoom Control View at the
top-left edge the screen (over the map).
 However, I will want it to be a the bottom of the screen, and I do
not know how to move it to that position.

I have tried to use de ViewGroup method requestChildRectangleOnScreen,
in order to move the zoomView to the position I want, but I have been
not able to make it work.

Can anyone help me with this issue?


2. ContentHandler.startElement(..) and ContentHandler.endElement(..) won't be called in 1.0 rc1

I am also having a problem with the SAXParser that I believe is
similar to your problem. I had a parser for a basic XML document that
contained only nodes and text. This was working find for weeks with
0.9. But after the change to 1.0 RC1 it no longer works properly.

Now, when it hits a node that contains the text, for instance "test &
text", it will separate it into three records, "test", "&", "text".
With 0.9 this would return "test & text" as you would assume. Using
other special characters, such as % and *, work as expected. Anyone
else see behavior like this?

Any suggestions?
