Faster Boot Times and Making the Overall OS Faster?
I just recently started playing around with my RPi 3B again and I wanted to make a Carputer. I have everything I need (Emteria has been a huge help with this project and I'm very pleased so far, even with the Evaluation version) and I'm ready to mount it in my car. I have two questions before I do so.
1.) Is it possible to change the time it takes for the power to be received by the RPi up until the main Android UI? (For example: Possibly speed past the Emteria logo upon boot and jump straight to the Android UI?) It isn't a huge deal at all since I usually get in my car and take a minute or two to connect my phone to my current head unit and begin driving, and it only takes about 40 seconds for my RPi to boot to the Android UI. It would be amazing to turn on my car and, within 10 - 20 seconds, have the Android UI already up and ready to go. If not, I'm guessing picking up a faster Micro SD card would work better? (I currently have a MicroSDXC Class 10 [I think?] by PNY, 64GB. It's the one with a green and grey border)
2.) Can I change some of the Android UI Animations to speed up the OS and decrease the amount of CPU, GPU, and RAM usage? I know you can do it on official Android devices but I would like to make the UI more snappy so I can quickly switch songs, look up a song, change the destination on Waze, or do more when I'm stopped in my car. I have already changed the background to a straight up black background, however, that barely does anything. I know you can change the screen resolution to a lower resolution to make everything run a lot faster, but, I haven't been able to properly test something like that in my car. (I don't want to have to see only one song on my Spotify playlist per scroll if you know what I mean.)
Anyway, thank you so much for the development of Emteria and I'm sure I'm going to put the OS to good use with more things I'm going to add later on down the road. (Pick up a USB microphone and attach it somewhere in my car for hands-free phone calls and possibly Discord calls...OOOO There's a suggestion. An Emteria Discord server would be cool to have to quickly share ideas and get in touch with the Devs for support a bit quicker hehe.)
Looking forward to a response,
