Boost Performance and Reduce Lag-Delays on Your Android Phone with Seeder App

posted by Rakesh Shukla

If you have an Android phone or tablet the lag issue must be a concerning thing for you. Lag-delays are one of the biggest issues that we face on our Android device. Though the Google claimed to significantly reduce this issue with what they call the Project Butter that was introduced with the Jelly Bean upgrade of the OS but the issue seems to be in so close a relation with Android that it did not leave it.

It’s really a very irritating experience when you see lag-delays that make launching apps and returning to the home screen take a little longer than they probably should. All of us go through this issue hundreds of time everyday but have you ever wondered what causes this lag and how to fix or reduce it on your Android phone? Hardly any! Thanks to the thriving nature of the Android community, that does not let any OS related problem stick with us for a longer time by offering an effective solution.

All props and credits to XDA member lambgx02 for taking the lag-delays issue seriously and working hard for finding out its root cause and, also, developing a wonderful app that any Android device user can install and fix lag-delays just by tapping a single button. The new app is called Seeder and it significantly reduces the lag-delays and thus boosts the performance of your Android device, making apps launch faster, home screens scroll faster, and your phone more responsive.

So, what does Seeder do to achieve this goal? During his probe into the problem, lambgx0 noticed that Android draws from a predefined entropy pool—or set of random data—for almost all of its operations. When that limited pool of random data dries up, it has to rebuild itself, which results in delays while apps and services wait for the data they need. To fix this problem he prepared a script that generates the RNG (random number generator) every second. It then supplies the newly generated random data to the pool that constantly keeps refreshing.

Thus with the Seeder app installed, your phone does not need to wait for the RNG data to be generated as it has that data always available through this app. The result is awesome! You phone becomes noticeably responsive and several times faster. I tested this app on my Galaxy S3 with the leaked 4.2.1 ROM and believe me, it really works! All you need is a rooted Android phone to give it a shot.

The app is available in two versions on free and donate version. In fact, the free version of the app is as functional as the paid one, the difference being the the automatic update feature that is available only with the donate version. Download the app from below and install it as a normal APK by copying it your phone. And, if you feel the difference, please appreciate the developer by buying the paid version of the app from the Google Play Store.

    Hi, the speeder app works great. However I am not sure if it works on Gingerbread or not. You should try formatting you phone too to see if it helps.

    Lag-delay is one of the reasons why most people hate TW. Samsung has significantly improved over it on S4, however.
    As for UI memory-loss issue, it is common to Android, whether you delete an item from file manager or return to Play Store app menu after downloading or viewing an app details. This is really an irritating experience and according to reports Google will solve it in the next version of the OS, Key Lime Pie.
    Anyways, nothing is perfect and so is our dear Android :(

    My phone always has some lag especially with TW launcher. I tried different stock based custom roms but the lag always be there when closing an app. The only solution is using another launchers.
    Also i’ve an annoying problem all the time that my phone can not multitask. For example: when i open facebook app, then hit a link in it, browser starts… then i close browser, phone returns facebook app but its not where i my left, restarts or refreshes the page. Same situations always on my phone when i backing apps all the time. Browser, facebook, games even phone app and other apps doesnt remember where i left them. Phone remembers what app i left but not where i left… I read some post about this situation but there is no solution for it.

    As a professional, any opinion about it?

    Hi Onder, this might be due to the clash of apps. As I remember FoxHound already has the Seeder Entropy preinstalled. Just check your app drawer.

  • Onder Peker

    I’m using SGS3 with FoxHound 2.4 rom.
    I’ve installed the seeder apk without any problem but after app starts and i hit the ON button, i receive that message: “RGND startup failed. Seeder was unable to start the RNG service. This usually happens if your device is not rooted, or if Seeder has been denied root privileges. Check your superuser and/or su binary installation, or try restarting your device” .
    SU app can see the SEEDER app and i reboot my phone several times but the message you read above always recieves.
    Any idea??? Thank you…

    I have Android 4.1.2. Will it work on my tablet? (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 P3110)

  • anshu

    admin my new pob is dat wenever i connect my 3g my system getn slow .. mi already hv seeder … .. y its hapng

    Agree! You know when this question was asked to official Android Devs, they just rejected the idea that this app can help reducing lag, but it does. They also said that such apps can pose security threats.

  • Mogwai

    Seriously we need an app that requires root privledges for this ? Surely Samsung could just deploy this in their stock firmware. I’m stuck on stock because i need work apps and they will block our email if we have jailbreak.

  • anshu

    yea improve my lag pob.. now m using 4.1.2.. thnku admin..:)
