Default Speedier Storm By Disabling Event Log

Please Login to Remove!

I have disabled all event logs and noticed the Storm is much more responsive. The reason why I decided to do this is because I was thinking every time your Storm does something, it writes to the event log. So now by disabling it, it is doing one less less task in the background.

Anybody notice any difference? Also, any harm in disabling the event log?

an event log is always just "for your info" so you won't have any problems disabling it, offcourse it might be more tricky to find out about a certain problem, but once again, if you notice a strange problem just turn on the eventlog again

With your Storm in landscape mode:

BlackBerry Menu --> Show Keyboard --> Press and hold !?123 to put phone on Num Lock --> Press the following keys " / " /

This will open Event Log

Now press the menu key and select options
Press Menu Key again and select Hide all types

Close Application.

Also since you have disabled it, you should also clear the log since there is no need for it anymore.

The way I figure, if I can't figure it out on my own, and Verizon can't fix it, I have insurance and will have my phone replaced.

But I also I want to know if anybody noticed a difference with it disabled?

Wow... I disabled event logging... cleared the log... did a battery pull to reset the storm...

And now... switching from landscape to portrait mode is almost instantaneous! Holy cow! Switching from portrait to landscape is a bit quicker too...

when viewing messages/menus, it seems like the scrolling is a big smoother/quicker as well.

All other functions seem just a bit faster too. Not too much faster... but faster

+1 for you! Thanks!

Does this really disable event logging? I don't believe so - all it does is filter the displaying of the event log.

I had the same thought as I was doing it... as "hide" doesn't necessarily mean "disable".

However... whatever I did.... whether it was just hiding the log (hiding or disabling)... or clearing the log... it definitely made my Storm faster.

It does not seem to make much difference for me. Hum... I went back to make sure I cleared and hid everything, and I did. I pulled the battery, and still the storm is about the same as before.

I didn't notice much of a difference after disabling the log, but maybe it will get better.

A little faster here, but nothing too crazy, for whatever reason.

I went in and changed it back, and I noticed I was only hiding the log, not disabling it.

Correct! The battery pull is probably the reason anyone has seen an increase in speed.

No speed differences noticed here... maybe there is just a placebo effect going on here.
