The CyanogenMod 9 ROM for LG Optimus L3 E400 makes the device run pretty smooth and was loved by most of the Optimus L3 user, but not by those who bought the phone recently and had the new display drivers because they could see a blurry screen after they installed the ROM. Indeed this is an issue you can not live with and hence you rolled back to stock ROM. Well, you don’t need to do that anymore because a kernel with blurred screen fix has been created by developer Suxsem on Modaco forums.
Features of the Kernel
- added overclock up to 1 Ghz
- added smartassv2 governor
- added swap
- added tun/tap module
If you are a noob, you may not understand what these aforementioned features meant. Let me explain that to you. Overclocking the CPU means increasing the clocks per cycle. Optimus L3 comes with a clock speed of 800 MHz but with this kernel, you can increase it to 1 GHz which means, better multi-tasking on the phone. Governors help you save battery and adjust the clock speed as required by the device. Swapping is used to increase your device’s RAM. It is practically impossible because RAM is hardware but you can do it by swapping a part of your SD card’s memory and making it available as RAM. Too much of swapping affects the SD card because of the increased number of read/write cycles but you can give it a try using Swapit RAM expander app.
Download & Install
To install the ROM, copy the zip file to your device’s SD card, boot into CWM and wipe data, cache and dalvik cache. After that go to Install zip from SD card>Choose zip from SD card and select the kernel zip file. Flash it in the next screen. Go back and select “Reboot system now”.
When you flash this on CM9, you should not have any blurry screen. Let me know how it works. For more on this, you can join our Facebook group.
Thanks Boris for letting this in!
