I can confirm:

After pushing this using flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img (as I had renamed the .img)

This works on the Commtiva N700 without ill effect - will report after 24 hours testing.

Well done TJ Style :D

Hi TJ,

Great work you have done on the kernel. Loaded it onto my Mi700 and it worked great. SetCPU showed overclocked but i couldn't get the figures you got in Quadrant. My score is only around 450. Any advice?

Thanks.

Thanks.

For Quadrant, you can't just see the overall score. but see the blue bar (cpu) score.

Are you've to activate the jit, hw accel and stagefright function?

does this enable you from having it rooted, with custom rom and now kernel to have flash player working?

Where to activate these functions?

To enable HW Acceleration, JIT and stagefright function you can modify the build.prop value.

open system/build.prop With root explorer or similiar tools.

set the debug.sf.hw from 0 to 1

set media.stagefright.enable-player from false to true

if the dalvik.vm.heapsize is less than 48m, you can set to 48m

and add the dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit parameter to build.prop

so the build.prop content is similiar like this:

# begin build properties

# autogenerated by buildinfo.sh

--------------------other value--------------------------------

debug.sf.hw=1

dalvik.vm.heapsize=48m

media.stagefright.enable-player=true

dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit

--------------------other value--------------------------------

I think the flash player still can't be working, because the problem is on the processor architecture.

FM6 is using MSM7227, the ARMV6 Family. and flash player until now is only working on ARMV7.

Quite right ... I use Skyfire to get the most possible from the web, and VitalPlayer to cope with onboard video - works a treat.

Thank you TJ for the tips on editing the build.prop ... it nearly doubled my benchmark in Quadrant!

Thanks for the tips. However, those lines above in my build.prop is located after "# end build properties" and located in "# system.prop for surf". So i copied those lines and placed them under "#begin build properties". Since then the Quadrant score more than doubled for CPU test.

Cheers.
