Tired of using numerous separate scripts and applications to tweak your N900 and make it run faster?

MaeModder is an application which allows you to carry out the most important mods available in Maemo in one place, from within one application and display.

MaeModder for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5

This application provides the following tweaks:

  • Swappiness: famous value that changes the tendency to use swap like the Swappolube package... the less it is, more the real RAM will be used. The value of 30 is adviced.
  • Page cluster: see
  • Camera Mod: It is said to provide benefits to the photo quality. It changes some values of the file /etc/gdigicam/gdigicam-camerabin.conf, activating the ipp filter and increasing the jpeg quality from 95 to 100.
  • Change kernel profile: as the name suggests, it verifies if the power kernel is installed (the test is made using the package of the kernel settings) and allows you to load the default profiles and set one of them as default one after the reboot.
  • Frequency manager: changes the limits (both min and max) of the kernel profile in use. The selection menu shows the frequencies currently used.
  • MAG Hildon-desktop: installs the latest version of hildon-desktop released by MohammadAG. It improves the kinetic scrolling, many shortcuts and the possibility to have 9 desktops.
  • Portrait status-bar: installs the latest version of the modified status bar released by MAG. Only the portrait mode works.
  • Custom transitions: allows you to install the custom transitions.ini files.
  • Multidesktop: allows you to set the number of the desktops and their background.
  • Change LED Colors: allows you to modify LED patterns.
  • Wifi-Switcher popup: the popup of the program doesn't need the tap to disappear anymore. After several seconds it disappears automatically.
  • Wifi Autostart off: this mod disables the autoloading of the WiFi modules on Maemo sturtup, just like WiFi Switcher does (but the WiFi-switcher small icon won't appear at the startup even if it is "activated"). Don't install this mod if you don't have Wifi-Switcher (or Advanced Interface Switcher) installed or you won't be able to connect to the network anymore.
  • Update notifications: this mod disables the update notifications - useful if you only use Faster Application Manager.
  • MyDocs executable: changes the mounting options of MyDocs, allowing you to execute every program without changing the permissions with chmod. Useful to install PreEnv games in MyDocs.
  • Hildon acceleration: this mod modifies the /etc/powervr.d/hildon-desktop.ini file, setting the value to 1 and activating the hardware acceleration. In some devices this mod can cause instability, so if you note some strange reboots disable this mod.

All the tweaks are fully reversible with the Restore option.

switching on the acceleration makes my N900 unstable; four to five crashes a day. the other settings are nice but do lead to lousy battery live. [Rate: 6/10]

@fw190 The app is aimed at newcomers... If you follow you'd probably have performed all of the mods manually! Kind Regards, D4rKlar [Rate: 10/10]

This app is since a while on but strangely people with a lot of skills don't say a word about it. In the topic you can find only newcomers. It sounds great, looks great but since I don't know a thing about linux I will wait with the installation until some more experienced users will check it out. [Rate: 7/10]
