Description

A simple entropy fixer for ROOT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_rooting) devices (non-root devices can also check their entropy).
******************************************************************************************************

On some (older) versions of Android, the JVM (and other components) often read random data from the blocking /dev/random, which has a low entropy by default, causing that some processes block themselves waiting for new data generation with a greater entropy. On newer builds, this problem has been solved, yet depletion of the input entropy pool still seems to slow devices.

So this fix seems to reduce some lag in the Android OS (XDA thread:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1987032)

However, the initial post makes some changes that are a little 'artificial', so I just created an app that applies a more 'natural' method based on this post: (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=36093065#post36093065)

It just modifies the system's wakeup threshold to update /dev/random values when the entropy is too low and it's completely reversible.

Permissions explanation:

android.permission.INTERNET
and
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE -> for ad banner.



android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED -> for applying the fix on boot if the user want.

Permissions
android.permission.INTERNET
Allows applications to open network sockets.
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE
Allows applications to access information about networks
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED
Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
