    I really hate the Samsung media scanner.

    Hate isn't even a strong enough word. If you have ever noticed, it scans the READ ONLY system on every boot. Then it scans SD card. Scanning the system is where the phone gets most sluggish though.

    Well, I tried my best to hack that feature out and still haven't been able to.

    I did find a workaround though:

    D/MediaScanner( 2798): prescan return
    D/MediaScanner( 2798): Start Original /system/media/
    D/MediaScanner( 2798): found .nomedia, skipping directory

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2056318/upda...anner_fast.zip

    It skips system and immediately moves to sd card.

    Making your phone completely responsive, and halving the scan time.
    Its a dirty way of fixing it, but hey, it works.

    or try...

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2056318/upda...an_scripts.zip

    fast_media --disables media scanning of system
    default_media --enables media scanning of system.

    Flash zip in recovery then in Terminal Emulator run script

    When finding no media, does it fail to show files?

    why dont nobody talk about CPU and battery eating service DownloadManager?

    i also am used to engage whit DOWNLOADMANAGER service running in background taking pretty cpu and battery on both my phones this happens on boot or right after managing files(rename, cut, paste & etc...)it keeps running for even hours till phone gets warm!

    whats the relationship between file managing and DOWNLOADMANAGER while being offline ?what does trigger it and what is this sopposed to trigger?does it help or run the media scanning ?

    my phones both rooted:Xperia mini GB and Xperia go JB
    my cpu monitoring app is usage-timeline
    excuse my bad English
