    I was getting 15-1600 scores on Quadrant before upgrading to BB v.4. I have tried 1200, 1250 and 1000 speed kernels. WTF?? All the benchmark tests seem to fly through until I get to the videos tests, the fps seem a little lower than they once were.

    I noticed that too. When I ran BB v1.0 @600, I was getting scors of 960.

    Now, with BBv0.4 P3@600, I get scores of 854.

    This was with same number of apps & widgets.

    Go figure...

    does it really matter guys? is your phone actually running slower or are you obsessing over a number that has no real relevance?

    so you score 1500ish on the benchmark with all your crap loaded and running... now what? do you notice that 500ms increase in the amount of time your web browser opens (at which point it's waiting on the 3g or wifi network...) or do you really notice that music app opening up a whole split second faster? is it that important to get that twitter app opened up a half second faster to tell the world you stumped your toe? :)

    that benchmark is just an indicator of how your phone could run, not how it will run. there are dozens of other factors to take into consideration that a benchmark doesn't.

    Did you do the streaming audio fix???

    I found this in another thread that with the streaming audio fix it lowers your Quadrant benchmark substantially. I undid mine to test and went from 850 to 1693. BUT, I did reverse it then and re did the audio fix!!!

    THX bad4u, didn't realize that!!

    Here's the adb method

    1. Open Command Prompt
    2. Type cd [location of tools folder in android sdk] Example cd C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Nexus One\android-sdk-windows\tools
    3. Type adb pull /system/build.prop c:\build.prop [This will place build.prop in your C Drive]
    4. Using any text editor, open the file, make the necessary changes, then save.
    5. Type adb remount
    6. Type adb push c:\build.prop /system/build.prop
    7. Type adb reboot
    8. To verify that it is disabled, type adb shell getprop

    After a few scrolls, you will see the following:
    [media.stagefright.enable-player]: [false]

    Who cares? Its stable, quick, and has good battery life. That means more than any benchmark score that doesn't seem to be worth a damn anyway...

    Agreed I don't care much about quadrant scores. Give me a stable rom and I'm happy.
    Features and stability matter more to me.
