although i have read through your posts, dont really get it..so my noob question:
this kernel should bring me more power or more juice ?
Sent from my Nexus 4 using xda app-developers app
Many of us P990 fellows have upgraded to Nexus 4 even after saying NO MORE LG
As it is UV kernel more battery is the thing you get. For me Nexus 4 is already very fast device.
And what I was talking about in previous post is different is each processor chips when manufactured even if they are all same Qualcomm S4 APQ8064, its same like we had in P990, some phones can OC higher but some can't. But good part in here is, manufacturer have an idea of which phone can OC/UV higher than other and its not as blind try and error as in tegra2 we suffered from.
You can identify you CPU chip by below command in terminal.
adb shell dmesg | grep PVS
It will give you some output as given example below
0.873920] acpuclk-8064 acpuclk-8064: ACPU PVS: 1
------ or -------
[ 0.873920] acpuclk-8064 acpuclk-8064: ACPU PVS: FAST
If you are on kernel of any other devs you will have it in strings SLOW, NOMINAL, FAST and FASTER
and if you have already flashed my kernel you will have it in numbers from 0 to 3 which indicate SLOW to FASTER.
