Good performance always lies at the core of our mobile experience. It is our concern for fast performance out of our phone or tablet that adds to our curiosity about the hardware specifications of a device before buying it. You might own a high-end device with pretty handsome features and might even be happy with its performance, but the desire to enjoy even more speed, more free RAM, more battery backup and better performance always remains at the back of our mind.

It is this desire to get the best possible performance out of our phone or tablet device that makes us root it and keep trying different apps, mods, tweaks and custom ROMs. Just as you do, we also keep looking for anything that could be of some use to you. Today, we are going to share a performance mod for Android devices running an AOSP or CyanogenMod based ROM.

The PurePerformances™X mod for Android devices is not just a single mod but a collection of modified scripts that tweak and optimize the system properties of your phone to improve its performance and battery backup. The mod has been packaged by jameseytickner from XDA who has compiled various mod scripts by different modders into one.

  1. Sir,after flashing this in my cm11 rom camera has stopped working……how to fix it or how to delete this file

  2. If you expect Samsung to send a software update to make the Galaxy S3 faster, just leave it. If you want really fast performance root your phone, install a custom recovery and flash ROMs like CM 11, Carbon or ParanoidAndroid.

    TouchWiz is very bad. We hate it for being the slowest UI on Android.

  3. so it’s mean that there is no such things as upgrading software to get same performance as PurePerfomance do without rooting the phone first?

    May i know any other guide from your post that i can follow to make my phone. Galaxy s3 become more faster without rooting. i’ve read and applied the setting in Developer Option and surprisingly works =)

    If there is any other way to make my phone better, kindly let me know soon ya.

    TQ so much for your good guides in this website.

  4. That local guy might have befooled you with some pirated app. To make your phone faster, rooted or not, always use Google Play store.

  5. Hi Rakesh,

    Is it possible to use this PurePerformance on Galaxy s3 that is never rooted?

    May i ask you some question, a handphone shop here at my place offered to “make new software which will do the same thing as PurePerformance do” when i ask him whether he root my phone or not, he said no. He charge alot for the software, so i want to find one without have to pay for it.

    Do u know anything about installing new software to increase the performance of the handphone without rooting??

    Hope you can answer my question. TQ

  6. Hi Rakesh, Thank you so much for sharing the useful info. I have 2 questions though –

    1. Can I use this mod on Micromax Canvas 4 – A210?
    2. Did you experienced so called “3G-like experience even in 2G” with this mod?

    I am highly interested in getting “3G experience in 2G” and thats the reason I am here. Can you suggest any other mods/Roms/apps for the same?


  7. Wipe dalvik cache in recovery and reboot, If that doesn’t work, restore your backup and try again. Do not forget to wipe dalvik cache and fix permissions when you install it next time.

  8. The phone goes into boot loop after the apps are updated.. Using cm 10.2 on gs3.. Any suggestions???

  9. Hello Rakesh, i’ve been using PurePerformance since 23 days, and i do see a good difference regarding the performance.
    I’m not really sure if this is the right place to ask this but, i’m tired of googling and youtubing about this

    i’ve N7000 Galaxy Note, CM9 (which is the least freezing OS so far among cm9-cm10-miui5-or anything)

    over a year ago, i bricked my phone (super brick) had to replace the mobo , but i didn’t
    I got it fixed (J-Tag) method. (he also said he replaced few components on my phone to fix it)
    i paid 4K (or i had to pay 9.5k for the whole new mobo)

    after getting my phone fixed from superbrick state, now it freezes a lot, random freeze ,
    sometimes bootfreeze,
    sometimes chrome use-freeze,
    sometimes usb data transfer freeze.

    i’ve changed more than 10+ types of ROMs, everything freezes.

    Do you have any ideas how I can fix this issue without changing the mobo?
    I feel depressed and embarrassed while showing something to friends in public or private and phone freezes all of the sudden.

  16. Hello Rakesh, its been almost 3 days. And i’m in love with my phone ever since i got ‘pure performance’ onto my phone.
    I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask this but,
    i’ve googled, youtubed a lot about it, never could find the right solution
    my problem is, im running a ROM which is ICS. And the status bar doesn’t have drop down technique ( 2 finger / full read notification feature)
    Is there any patch or file which i flash and i get 2 finger notification like JB on my ICS?

    Thank you once again ^^

  17. Hi Siddhant, I liked the term “black magic” that you used for PurePerformances™X Mod. Actually, the performance of a device depends on how it has been configured to perform. Our OEMs keeps things at moderate level and that is why we often see that the speed of the system, volume loudness and battery life gets better with a custom ROM.

    PurePerformances™X Mod does not use any spell to achieve the effect. It is a collection of scripts coded by different developers. The reason why it’s small is that it just contains system configuration files with custom coding to get the best possible results. Just hope I was able to explain things appropriately. 🙂

  18. i had bricked my n7000 note once (super bricked) and fixed it with jtag method. after that i installed

    -CM9 , good perfromance , good battery, lack features but freeze sometimes

    -CM10, medium performance, bad battery, too many features, but always freezes

    – PA2 , good performance, very bad battery, too many features, freezes sometimes

    and finally installed CARBON ROM 1.7, very good performance, very good battery, too many features, freezes sometimes..

    later i found this article, i thought its some stupid shit. but since i’ve a freezy phone, i tried this.
    ever since i installed PurePerformances™X Mod on my CARBON 1.7 ROM

    Best Performance – Best Battery – Amazing ROM. i’ve no ideas what kinda black magic this 2.14mb piece of god did.

    If you know, please feel free and let me know What is pure performance and how it works.
    Thank you.
