Looking at the Chainfire root thread on xda ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1103399 ) about the SGSII.. Do I need to download the particular kernel version at the bottom of the 2nd post or so (ie the actual 'root')? The kernel version on my phone is i9100XWKE7, baseband is XXKE4.

jpanwala: tried quickpic and other app called reduce image size, neither have the ability to batch resize...


Any luck with the image upload/resize app? Did any of the suggestions fit your needs?


Na.. none does a batch resize.

have tried following apps until now. All free ones though obviously as I want to see whether they would do what I want it to!

Reduce file size
image shrink lite
quickpic

Tried another couple have now uninstalled them so don't remember what they were. What I am after is yes these apps allow sharing after resizing, BUT only for a single image. The moment you select two or more in that gallery/quickpic, options limit to email and picas and messaging. Yet it does not optimize file size for emails. It does for PXT, but i want to email them.

My iphone 3G on the other hand, allows you to select multiple images from photos, and select send via email. It automatically scales down images to lower resolution and sends quickly.

I use same yahoo mail account, max 3-4 photos are allowed to be sent over s2 as it lumbers around the 10mb (max email size) mark. Have sent 10+ from my iphone.. (normal image size 600-700 kb)

Options seem like I take pictures in lower res beforehand, or transfer to PC and then resize and send or email one by one. All killing productivity! There has to be a way... just need to find out what it is. :)

On another topic, this is supposedly the fastest phone (it is atlas for me!) but the gallery sometimes (intermittently) takes unto 25 seconds to show content, otherwise only loading... is this normal or could be linked to RAM and free memory management? If it si, should be it this slow? <100 images, no videos in 5 folders in the gallery. XWKE7 generic XEU f/w

valtam: What are you guys formatting your 32gb sd cards in, exFat, fat32?


I think I formatted it using my HTC Desire, I didnt do anything to it just threw it into the SGS2 and it works fine.



+1. Didn't format at all - just bought it, installed it, used it.

Bummer. If you do find a solution, be sure to post it. I'd be keen on something that can automate the process, especially batch functionality.

Cheers.

Kilack: also.. how is the battery life on the galaxy s2 now that you have the optimised roms going etc compared to the galaxy s? we at least getting through a day comfortably?


I'm currently on 22 hours use with 33% battery left. That's with about 20mins of phone call and a fair bit of tinkering. I've disabled all of the Samsung social-media apps which are known to be battery eaters though. They strike me as fairly useless, so no loss there.

Hopefully 2.3.4 won't be far off which is supposed to fix most of the battery issues. Not holding my breath though :)

can someone point me in the right direction on how to disable these hubs. ?? Ta?

I don't disable/freeze the hubs,i just don't use it

one thing i haven't seen mentioned before ...and it's the only real issue i have with the phone.

it's the over aggressive closing of music apps when using bluetooth headphones.

if i have google listen, or google music, or winamp .... after a wee while .. the app closes, right in the midst of playing back audio.


does it do the same thing for you wired guys?

The default Gallery app looks pretty, but has massive performance & quality issues, hence why I try to use QuickPic as an alternative whenever possible. It doesn't look anywhere near as pretty, but it's faster, more functional, and displays a higher quality image.

I also just found "JustPictures!" which integrates online accounts (Flickr, Picasa etc) into your gallery which could be handy - no resize option though. Looks like a handy app however.

Have you tried any alternative MMS applications? The popular ones seem to be GoSMS, Handcent and ChompSMS.  Maybe one/some of them will do batch resizing?

You might've found a niche requirement, maybe put a request into the Android apps sub-forum over on XDA?

Overclocking mine to 1300mHz made the gallery much faster to load, also made hi-def videos load instantly when there had been a noticeable delay before. It made no appreciable difference to battery life.

What O/C app did you use?

The Cognition 1.06 kernel update has made a noticeable difference in speed, and I only losy 4% overnight with 3g sync going.  As someone here suggested a while back (or maybe it was XDA), the performance gains through tweaking ROM's will be limited with this device - the real gains will come through kernel dev. work.

SetCPU is available for free via the XDA forums if you sign up. Cognition OC's to 1500Mhz which is pretty amazing. I underclock my SGS2 to 1Ghz for more battery life, I can't tell any difference in performance.

Cog v1.06 doesn't seem to be on the download page yet. Where'd you find it?

Do you have a link for SetCPU?
