    Linaro Android - with some impressive video improvements over stock Android

    Hi,

    I spotted this news in a couple of places:

    Linaro Android is up to twice as fast as stock Android

    Linaro Android Puts Stock Android To Shame on TI Pandaboard (OMAP4430) | CNXSoft – Embedded Software Development

    The twice as fast - seems to be on certain types of video performance - not overall speed .... but still makes interesting reading.

    Seems like the improvements were made in the way the thing is built/compiled - not source code changes (if I interpreted this correctly).

    The Developers are open to sharing with other teams .... so Borkata / MrDL - can you use this to tweak our ICS a bit more ?

    It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers.

    This looks like a very promising upgrade to ARM and the linux kernel. I hope Cyanogen does start using their optimizations in CM9, it would be great for devices that aren't the most powerful and newest.

    Looks very interesting. Will take a look maybe, although there is already myth-busted topic here [R&D] MYTHBUSTER Optimized compiler toolchains - xda-developers
    For tegra2 here is interesting link Linaro for nVidia Tegra2 - Ask Linaro

    IMHO, XDA guys have been concentrated on pure kernel builds, while Linaro says they could get the speedup due to building Android parts with special flags. So, I tend to believe the video
