Nexus 7 LTEのモッサリ解消は簡単だった…

ずっと気になっていたNexus 7 LTEのモッサリ感。Chromeをずっと使い続けているとドンドンひどくなる。いろいろkernelを調整したり、L Speed modを使って調整したり、CM13や他のカスタムROMを試してみたけれど、システム自体が大きいのでたくさんgappsを/systemに入れられない。そこでstockに戻した。

これでは解決しないので、open gappsの20151219版のコアに入れ替えてみた。このままではrootが取れないので、kernelはElementalXに変えて、SuperSUをインストール。(今流行のsystemless rootは、まだ不安定なところもあり、互換性のないアプリもあるので、今のところSuperSU2.54を使用。)

あら不思議。Chromeでの引っ掛かりが全くなくなった。コアのみ20151219版で、他のgappsは最新版なので内部ストレージの節約にもなる。
