    Q Speed Hack

    1) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\GDI\GLYPHCACHE
    change limit from 16384 to 32768
    2) Navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\STORAGEMANAGER\FATFS
    change cachesize to 4096


    Has anyone done this? I'm being cautious and would like to know if any of you guys/gals have tried this hack yet be fore I try it myself. It's supposed to increase the responsiveness of the Q.:thumbup:

    Why not just try it, you can always undo it. Worse case, the phone is unusable and you have to throw it away......hehe.

    BTW:
    The GDI tweak: This tweak will improve the response time of Pocket Internet Explorer when opening large HTML documents. Taken from http://www.hpcfactor.com/support/cesd/s/0006.asp

    Well I just tried both of these. Actually I set GLYPHCACHE = 65535.

    My Q is definitely responding faster. Windows display almost instantly now, instead of drawing partially, then the rest drawing, etc. Going back is instantaneous also. I think this is all due to the second tweak. Nice.

    The first tweak seems to have no effect on web page loading time however. I will play with this some more.

    Speed Hack

    It works!! Q is much quicker. I have the game folder with like 12 games in it and it had taken usually 10-15 sec. to open. Now takes just over 5 sec. ;-) Also deleting the temporary intenet files is super fast now. Only takes approx. 20 sec. instead of the 1-2 minutes of sluggishness. Even menus are popping up quicker, though I've noticed a very brief split sec blank screen before the new page comes on screen. (still faster) Everyone one should do this hack !!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Thanks, I figured out late last night after a few hours of trying that I am in Canda and Telus seems to have locked this part of the phone.

    I'm getting an "Access Denied" error when I try to change the registry entries.

    Any suggestions? I'm using something called Mobile Registry Editor - is there a different program anyone could recommend?

    Give me some examples of noticible speed increases. Im on the fence with messing with the Registry (due to past experience) What does it speed up?[​IMG]

    I had the same problem and discovered this: Mobile Registry Editor will work.....but you have to do AEConfig first......read about it download it at http://www.breaksoft.com/Blog/Posts/2005/8/Mobile_Registry_Editor_FAQ.aspx

    Look for AEConfig.exe on the page....and follow instructions.....I did this a month ago and Mobile Registry Editor works like a charm for me now.

    Tag, don't sweat this one.. really.. I don't think there are speed benchmarks for mobile phones!! At least not yet.. Hehe.. I'd previously adjusted these cache settings but noticed very little "Real World" difference.. But read this guys serilously elavtaed tweaks and throught WTH.. Give it a try... The Q is much more responsive, opens and exits programs, open IE much more quickly.. But as always your mileage may vary.. Just write down specifically, the original Registry settings, and then then the changed default values and the paths in case you don't like it or want to revert.. No worries with this one..
