As far as I know (and according to the first post) this kernel (and all versions of it to date) is for stock/stock based ROMs only.

Yep, I am ignoring any questions about whether this works in CM..X now. It does not, but if you want to flash it, go for it, you probably won't get a hard brick, just a soft one requiring you to reinstall from recovery.

Release #7 does not have zram enabled. MemoryInfo sad that kernel doesn't have swap file enabled. Please can you check it?

You need to enable and set it up with a script. It will not be enabled just because it is in the kernel.

No problem. Let me know how it goes. I think this new one has less force closes and pretty good battery life. Seems to be working well on my phone.

Hi,

I have been doing some benchmarking using Infusion as my base. A question, has 1.19GHz OC been removed? I only have 1.15 & 1.228GHz.

1.228GHz gave me a freeze requiring a battery pull, then during a benchmark I got a reboot. I usually run @ 1.19GHz so I can't do a like-for-like comparison.

Initial benchmarking (@ 1.15GHz) was quite a bit lower than #19 Kernel, although after a reboot I think you need to let the phone settle for say 5mins as I think background tasks were still running?

So far we have (I did a number of tests on the same settings so there might be a couple of scores in some cases):

Kernel #19 @ 1.19GHz - Smart Ass2 - s/o = 4117 (notes - my original benchmark score)

Installed Kernel #11

Kernel #11 @ 1.228GHz - Interactive X - s/o = 3068 (notes - I ran benchmark quite quick after a reboot)

Kernel #11 @ 1.15GHz - Interactive X - s/o = 3226

Kernel #11 @ 1.228GHz - ondemand - s/o = forced a reboot during benchmark

Reinstalled Kernel #19

Kernel #19 @ 1.19GHz - Interactive X - s/o = 2780? (notes - I ran benchmark quite quick after a reboot)

Kernel #19 @ 1.19GHz - Smart Ass2 - s/o = 3908 / 3932

Kernel #19 @ 1.19GHz - Performance - s/o = 3870

Hope it helps? Because my phone does not like 1.228GHz and 1.15GHz is lower than 1.19, I have gone back to Kernel #19.

If 1.19GHz can be added to new Kernel then I can try more tests.

I can add 1.19 ghz back in for the next one. I can also doublecheck the smartass2 settings in the new kernel match the old settings. Geno changed a lot in the freq settings in his kernel so I can look at going back to my old freq settings too.

Could you provide a working script, because I can't get zRam enabled on #11 with mine ?

#!/system/bin/sh

echo 1 > /sys/block/zram0/reset

echo$(($DISK_SIZE*1024*1024)) > /sys/block/zram0/disksize

mknod /dev/zram0 b 253 0

mkswap /dev/zram0

swapon /dev/zram0

exit 0

and

echo 104857600 > /sys/block/zram0/disksize

mkswap /dev/block/zram0

swapon /dev/block/zram0

OK, #13 kernel is up now. Try out the same scripts as above. The scripts seem to be enabling a swap area compressed in ram (zram) and that side would have worked. I had not enabled swap though so it would not have enabled the kernel to make use of the swap area. I have enabled swap now as well as a couple of other small tweaks. Hopefully that should do it.

PaulM #13(@1,19Ghz) Kernel and Supremacy Trilogy Script.

Games now runs smooth as before. But now its lagfree (Got with old kernel and NO scripts hard lags sometimes (e.g Tempelrun 1+2)

Release 19 seems the quickest on My phone, can't get a stable overclock out of any of them.. Antutu 3684+- on 19...and only 2965+- on newer releases. Quite a difference there..
