[KERNEL] TheOCv1.7.19 kernel for Motorola Triumph CM7
Disclaimer: By downloading and installing this kernel, you are assuming all risk. There are no implied warranties of any kind.
It seems to be working for me but try this at your own risk... Don't come crying to anyone here if you fry your phone... Don't overclock if you don't feel comfortable taking the risk!
This kernel is based on Tickerguy's latest kernel in the 11-19 build with the OC tables and the minmax and smartassv2 makefiles from Isaac merged in.
Flash Zip file in CWM.
File (see changelog at end of post):
- the oc kernel
- the original boot.img from the cm7 11-19 build in case you bootloop and want to restore the original
Here's a link to a pretty good description of what seems to be most or all of the known available governors and IO schedulers in use in Android kernels by knzo at xda:
[REF] Quasar kernel governors and I/O schedulers manual - xda-developers
(in my (knzo's) humble opinion)
- Battery: 1st place - InteractiveX | 2nd place - Smartass | 3rd place - SavagedZen
- Performance: 1st place - Minmax | 2nd place - Smartass2 | 3rd place - SavagedZen
To sum up:
(in my (knzo's) humble opinion)
- Performance: 1st place - VR
- Reliability: 1st place - Simple
Just a small update
-kernel patched to version 18.104.22.168
-includes most of Whyzor's kernel updates
-uses Whyzor's latest touchscreen driver
-changed default io scheduler to sio
-changed default goveror to interactive
-using same gpu drivers as in cm9
- Fixed Interactive governor. SHOULD work now.
- reduced Interactive governor transition latency so it will transition faster.
- added Whyzor's wakelock fix to try and prevent times when deep sleep mode is never entered.
- disabled 184 MHz frequency.
- added 2way calling patch. Thanks to avs333 for the patch and DoomLord for the port of the patch.
Need to use CallRecorder app from skvalex or rVoix.apk from avs333. More info can be found on this thread on xda:
Here's the post by skvalex listing his latest trial version of CallRecorder:
Here's the market link for CallRecorder:
I tested the CallRecorder app and the sound quality was excellent for a recording--if you're into that sort of thing. I did not test the rVoix.apk yet at this time.
- enabled 61 MHz and 184 MHz clock frequencies.
- updated Interactive governor with all of the latest updates from CM.
- Added lower voltage regulator settings down to 600. It looks like 600 is the min that our boards can go from what the specs look like.
- changed default IO scheduler to NOOP.
- reverted memcopy update.
- added Isaac's updated touchscreen driver
- enabled swap file support
- added memcopy update and memory management tweak
- Updated for Tickerguy CM7 11-19 build, WIFI AP now works properly
- added a few more governors: InteractiveX, Scary, smartass, SavagedZen
- Added I/O schedulers cfq, vr, and sio. Go ahead and try them out if you want. I was able to set them using No Frills CPU control -- available free on the market. I tested running lots of quadrants and deadline still seemed the fastest on average than the rest but ymmv.
- Enabled detailed frequency translation statistics just so I can see the detailed stats of frequency usage.
-Added SVS for voltage control. You can set the voltage in one of 3 ways:
1. manually edit the vdd_levels file in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ using either adb or a file manager.
2. Set up a script and put it into init.d to set the file upon boot.
3. The simplest way - use the IncrediControl app to set the voltage. You can read about it from this post on xda and a download link is also provided there or download it from the Market:
[MOD] IncrediControl - Easy GUI Undervolting - xda-developers
Thanks to b_randon14, chad0989, DoomLord, and Napstar whose code, posts, links and info helped a lot as well as the million posts from everyone that I read over the last few days...
- I'm using the following undervolt table on my phone in IncrediControl and it seems pretty stable; try out your own settings and see. The higher frequencies > 1.7 GHz would not undervolt for me without locking up and rebooting but your phone might fare better. I suggest that you DO NOT APPLY the settings on Boot until you are sure your phone is stable.
***If you undervolt too much and hose your phone, you can download this flashable zip in CWM to reset the Incredicontrol settings. Zip was provided by Incredicontrol site that is linked and I updated the script for the Triumph.
more aggressive undervolting table:
-set default max freq to 1024 MHz - hopefully oddball phones will now boot - thanks to b_randon and pwnyourace for the advice
-added 2 GHz frequency line - thanks to b_randon14, DooMLoRD, Napstar and FPX
-Changed default governor to OnDemand
-turned off kernel debugging
Thanks goes to: Issacj87, Tickerguy, DooMLoRD, Napstar, b_randon14, FPX, pwnyourace, avs333, and the Tiamat devs.
