What's wrong with Tom G's kernel?

http://download.cyan...ly&device=blade

The new kernel/wifi uses more battery in sleep mode with wifi on than the old kernel/wifi. Sej's kernel is the old kernel/wifi - but with all of the tweaks added to the new kernel, added to it.

If you're a gamer, you'd also want the new Adreno libs if you're going to use the nightly: http://blade.windows98.co.uk/downloads/new-egl-libs.zip

On the contrary I've been on the 20 apr nightly with the original kernel for a week now and I've found battery to be exceptional with wifi on.

It's much better than the RC (cause it does actually sleep now!) but not as good as the old kernel as far as I can tell.

I have to agree, I'm getting much better performance now on the new nightly (20th Apr) with WIFI on and connected all day!

Wasn't the problem with that kernel that IF you turned wifi off at any point (even if you later turned it back on) then the phone wouldn't sleep? As long as you leave wifi on then you don't see that issue.

That issue is fixed in the nightly. But it's still more draining with wifi on for some - though apparently not others! But it doesn't really matter much because you have a choice and can use whichever you think works best. :)

I flashed sej's kernel and battery life was slightly worse. Didn't test it extensively.

Hi!

I have for the first time in my life installed Linux/Ubuntu and i just compiled my own CM7 after alote of confusions i got it work and i have done my first own CM7 =) all working great .

But i have wery little space in my computer so i wounder after i have compiled a ROM can i clear the "OUT" folder in android/home/system or? And second thing i want help with is how can i add the "new" EGL Libs that Targetbsp has so the are compiled in my ROM , i know i can flash them after but i just want them next time i make new rom so they come in . Hope some1 knows what i mean =) sry for bad english.

i am happy for all tips and help..

Best regards Juha

You can delete 'out' but if you can avoid doing so then your next compile will be much faster.

You can copy the new EGL libs into ~/android/system/vendor/zte/blade/

You have to delete build.prop between builds. I can't remember where it is though! Try a file search. :) If you can't find it I'll check later.

I also use 12.04 but i have 64bit system. I think read somewhere that compile GB must have 64bit system. But i maby have wrong.

I have to agree with you, for me the result is the same as yours (sej old kernel for some time)
