Hello

I am new to this forum and am a long time CM user which I am using on my phone at the moment. However, having discovered the aggressive thermal throttling on this phone (CPU-intensive tasks seem to throttle the max CPU speed down to 1190 MHz very very quickly, before the phone even gets warm), I'm trying to find a custom kernel that will work with CM. I don't care about any fancy features such as S2W or DT2W and if the kernel allows these to be disabled then that would be even better. Basically looking for a reliable, stable kernel that can be configured to be as close to stock as possible, but which would stop the aggressive thermal throttling.

Thanks

Hi, and Welcome!

I'm afraid that your post likely will be considered a "Best ROM or kernel" thread which is not allowed. It's usually suggested that you go over to the development forum and try out kernels for yourself because everybody's needs are different, and so on.

Only Chaos kernel is compatiblewith CM atm afaik because its a CAF based kernel.

I probably will do that, but I thought this might not fall in the realm of "best kernel" because I have listed some specific criteria...

I'll give that a try. From browsing earlier I noticed that n30Hammer and ElementalX have separate links for CM11, I figured they would be compatible.

Oh, believe me, I think your post is fine. I just wanted to give you a polite heads-up before the more zealous members started chiming in.

Hi,

Yes they are compatible too, for ElementalX choose the right version. Both have thermal settings.

There is also: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2649458 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2633955 (almost the same kernels apart the Toolchain), compatible with CM/CM based rom with thermal control too.

All you do is make it "best kernel for specific criteria" then. Mods see it all as the same thing.

I'm giving ElementalX a try for now. The mods can feel free to close this thread if they see fit.

Thanks for all the replies.

before this gets locked you need a CAF kernel, Chaos kernel comes to mind, they do nice work. Comes with NXT tweaks which allows you to customize almost everything including temp.

I tried all possible CM11 kernels and Chaos kernel has in my opinion a very nice CPU load management.
Other kernels will stay for several seconds in max frequency after a power demand which result in higher CPU battery drain.

Bricked kernel was also excellent in that field and super responsive but the developer takes a break at the moment so the kernel is not usable for the CAF Version of CM after 25.01.14 without further modding and the AOSP mod for CM CAF is producing some weird behavior on my phone so I go for Chaos and CM at the moment.

I found Elemental would keep upping the minimum CPU to 1267 instead of 300, so at the moment I'm trying out NexXxt as @viking37 linked above, and using Trickster to configure the temps it seems to be working pretty good.
