    Linaro Android Doubles ICS Performance

    Linaro
    New Android Build
    No ETA


    It takes stock Android 4.0.4 and makes it super-fast, and super-awesome(er). In fact, it can boost performance by up to 100 percent over stock. Considering how fast and fluid stock Android 4.0.x already is , that's quite impressive. Don't take word for it, though, here's one of the main Linaro guys, Bernhard Rosenkranzer, showing it off on a TI Pandaboard. The Pandaboard features the OMAP 4430 processor (the same one that's in the Droid RAZR), so this is definitely a real-world example of what Linaro is capable of:





    Linaro build finishes long before the stock Android build.
    That's not the best part though: the parts of Linaro that make is so efficient and fast are coming soon to CM9.


    The good news doesn't end there, though: Galaxy Nexus owners can already take an unofficial CM9 build with the Linaro bits for a whirl. From what we've read, this build is noticeably faster and more fluid right out of the gate. Awesome.


    We have no idea when we could start seeing builds show up with Linaro code, so for now, we'll all just have to take comfort in knowing that things in the CM9 world are getting ready to get a lot faster.

    But what Entro said about Linaro:

    Expect an increase in SoDs, crashes, and general instability as this merges.

    Also don't expect the performance improvements to be as great as they've been made out to be - they were highly synthetic, I believe a lot of stuff was in software rendering mode without hardware acceleration. hwaccel nullifies many of the software improvements.
    Great to have this speed for all roms
