    Whats a reccomended SD Card Read Ahead (kb) for class 4 sd cards. I just bought a new 16gb sandisk class 4 and wondering if it should be increased rather than 3072 for my old class 2

    try this little tweak i know of, it usually helps out a lot with music skipping

    change sdcard buffer speed
    run in terminal emulator as superuser (su) or put #!/system/bin/sh as first line and put in /system/etc/init.d (you can change the value in the "echo 1024 > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb" line to suit your needs- (common values are 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 3072, 4096, 5120, 6144)


    for i in /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/*
    do
    echo 2 > $i/read_ahead_kb
    done
    echo 1024 > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb
    echo 2 > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/default/read_ahead_kb


    or you can try just simply using the simple version


    echo 1024 > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb

    do you know the full specs of the card or what exactly the classes mean? heres how it works for anyone that might not exactly know...the class number represents the slowest writing speed expected on that sdcard for example a class 2 card means you can expect a MINIMUM of 2 MB/s, a class 4 means you can expect a minimum write speed of 4 MB/s, a class 10 means you can expect a minimum write speed of 10+ MB/s...however the read speeds which is what the sdcard read-ahead buffer refers to the read speeds which varies upon the brand/model of sdcard

    now for the easy answer, considering the 3072 doesnt tend to work well on class 2 sdcards because its too high, it should work just fine for you, im pretty sure chevycam has a class 4 sdcard too so that setting may actually already be the best one for a class 4 sdcard

    Updated the OP with 2 new screenshots of my current work. Only updated the last two screenshots, not the first two yet. You will notice in the last two, that the clock has been changed to match the rest of the theme properly, the notification power widget area is much nicer, and has better contrast, and most notably, the settings area now has ICS-style indicators to show checked and unchecked. I had to make those icons by hand. I wanted to make them wider, to look better, but its not bad the way it is, and its good they stay as wide as they are, because when viewing permissions in Root Explorer for example, the icons fit perfectly, and dont oversize.

    Updated the OP with 2 new screenshots. Only updated the last two, not he first two.....yet. Changed the clock to match the rest of the status bar images, changed the notification power widget area for better contrast and color, and changed the settings checkboxes to something more ICS-style. What do you guys think?

    can you add in custom notification color settings? i hate it when this happens for apps that run via notification (i edited the one to hide my exact location but you get the idea) i am running a different ics theme that was more up to date than the original sd9 one but thats also another good reason to add in this feature in case anyone wants to run a theme chooser theme instead of stock theme

    Im not too well versed in exactly what you mean. You want to be able to change the color of the text for each apps notification? (per-app basis) Or something else?
