    Making the mercury better?

    Ok, so I've had my mercury for about 3 months now and i'm getting burnt out on it. Currently it is stock, not rooted . Nothing. And I was wondering if there was any mods that anyone has done that makes the phone considerably better. I've heard something about supercharger but not sure. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    The supercharger doesn't need a patch it's a script that works universally for any android phone.

    So what exactly do I need to do to make my mercury the best I can make it? I've rooted and put custom roms on my ascend 1 and 2 but a step by step of what you would recommend on the mercury would be very helpful.

    I too don't like the mercury much.... sure it may be crickets best phone but it's not even as smooth and error free as even the much older and only 1ghz processor evo........ my mercury freezes for several seconds or more when trying to make calls or dial numbers....... why? I'm on stock, non rooted.... have 1.6gb free still in main memory... have 32gb sd card which has 7gb free..... constantly using one click cleaner doesn't seem to help much either

    Not sure how you guys are running your mercury's but I did tons of side by side tests with my Merc and Bionic. Bionic 1ghz dual core 1 gb ram. Merc 1.4 ghz 512 mb ram. Aside from the mercs slightly slower load times this thing performs just as fast for me.

    Download the Superchargerv6.sh.pdf file from the attachment from its original posting. Youll have to "Right-click & save as" once its on the sdcard use a Terminal application to run the app.


    Type:

    cd /directory of the file you downloaded

    su

    ./name of file you downloaded

    #note: I usually rename it to simple names like "super.sh" ect so its faster to type.

    Once it runs itll check if your rooted & that you have busybox installed. If not it will open play store for you to download and install Busybox installer.

    Once the script runs again just follow the steps it gives.

    for ex. press 1 for fast scrolling speed,

    choose 500mb from the list [Range from option 5-7]

    and reboot when its finished.

    You can either install my Revokster Rom (simple,clean,fast), or Optimized Stock 2.3.6 rom. Of course youll need to be rooted and have Clockworkmod recovery aka cwm to install these roms. There are Guides on here to show you how.

    After you flashed my rom follow the tutorial on how to install the Superchargerv6 script using terminal. It will make you fall in love with your phone (at least i did lol), if you have any questions or problems post them here or on the threads where my rom is.

    Applications can vary from startup because not every app can run in the background. The more apps running, the more lag will happen, this happens on every android device. If too much ram is used it will start killing applications in the background and focus on the application thats currently running. There is a way to solve this, using a custom rom of course applications are optimized and tweaked to use less ram and start faster than stock. Give Revokster Rom a try and let me know if you like.
