I've been running EaglesBlood ICS 4.0.3 which comes with 2.6.32.58-egb-faux kernel. Ill be honest my battery out lives all the other rom/kernel combos I've tried. However, I have noticed that if you dont reboot your phone every so often it will do so for you in the middle of an important phone call.

Cool Salute the Kernels

You won't find many people that understand kernels. "Just install and try it" means "I don't know what I'm doing"

I'm on CM7 #225 Nightly with Trinity ELP kernel and Pimp My CPU. Trinity permits undervolting and overclocking to 1.1GHz, but you can't take advantage of that unless you install Pimp My CPU. (I had SetCPU but it crashed with Trinity and the developer stopped answering my emails.)

Pimp My CPU has automatic profiles that vary your voltage with your CPU speed. So when your CPU chooses to run at 1GHz, Pimp My CPU sets the voltage to 925mV, and when the CPU drops down to 432 MMHz Trinity drops your voltage down to 775mV. This behavior boosted my battery life from from a day to over two days.

You can also set custom profiles for applications. I set profiles for video player MX Player and my camera LGCamera to 1.1GHz (You have to manually set 1.1GHz in Pimp My CPU).

I also set a profile for Screen Off, of Max=432MHz and Min=216MHz. Big improvement on battery life regardless of kernel. You can also set profiles for different battery levels (100%, 40%, 30%, 20%, 10%)

The kernel also includes camera drivers and my camera takes better photos with Trinity.

It's a good idea to reboot every time you charge to 100% or your phone may reboot for you, regardless of kernel.

SetCPU works fine for me with Trinity and so do the options in CM settings.
