I forgot to add. That I set freqs for second core in manner that both cores are always running at slightest load using trym's OC app for better score and more objective comparsment. Due to differences in stock core ramping between kernels.

Yeah I know how to attain more. But for this test both environments were same fresh installed DM 1.3Beta.

The next thing... I could also put up quadrant score, there the 200Mhz gain gives the lead to spica. Quadrant is way to unstable for benches anyways...
But for now perfomance crown is yours, let us see about power department in the morning. And thanks for your work Stefan, and Spica too... competition is always welcome.

According to your screenshots, the 1.4 kernel is slightly faster at everything except floating point math, where gustekrnL wins by a lot. Could have been a fluke of course, but I guess different compilation flags can account for this. (If dalvik-apps even use anything of the kernel when doing math, I honestly don't know.)

In the screenshots spica kernel is running at 1,4 GHz and still 350 points lower than mine @1,2 GHz. This has to be a bug in HP kernel, as @1,4 GHz you should usually be able to score around 7000 points and not around 6000.

However, comparing scores run at different freqs makes no sense anyway and honestly what I care most about is smoothness not benchmarks.

Edit: But of couse still thx for comparing as this can be helpful to other users

Yeah, I know, I noted that the 1.4Ghz kernel was slightly faster than the 1.2Ghz kernel, which you would expect, in everything except floating point math. That result sticks out, and is also attached a lot of weight-points in Antutu.

Agreed.

Good work on the latest, no sign of scaling bug. (Even at a polling interval of 10ms there's no sign of it, so I think we can safely say it's gone.)

Haven't had a chance to test it much yet, but as of now it looks like this is the kernel you wanted to make. Congrats.

Thank you Trym Hopefully it is, I really hope so... Then I could upload it as final (with latest GuesteOC and OC up to 1,3, 1,4 or 1,5 GHz -- not decided yet) and finally find some time to update my two ROMs (GoodBye 1.1 and gueste2x v3.2).

Cool
Hi Dev, your kernel is a good alternative to the stock one..I noticed the stock kernel has a bug with the cpu/touch screen interacions (high usage ~70% just when hold the finger in the screen).

Your kernel Don't have that bug, and provide me a very responsive cellphone, butttt...I have a doubt with the embebbed GuesteOC (2.0.3 by Myrt). When I change the values from "Led brightness, Min/Max freq, etc" that values never applied in my 2.3.4 GB (v20H Indian), and when I configure it and then restart the app, that show me only the defaults values.

SetCPU is not present in my O2x so, why can't I change and tweak your kernel in my p990?.

Best regards,
asrhael

This is because you don't have working init.d - in other words support for startup-scripts. They not only restore the values, but also set the permissions for various files so that the app can work.

You can solve this by 1) First installing guestekrnL 1.6, which came with init.d support, and 2) install guestekrnL 1.6.2 again - OR - install Spica PowerPack, which also enables init.d. 1) and 2) is the cleaner option, it will not install anything you don't need.

(Stefaaaaan: Why the heck did you stop making a boot-image with init.d? ;))

Dude...you're a genius man!, install 1st the 1.6 version then 1.6.1 solved my problem, the init.d was successfully created (not necessary to reboot between zip flash).

Thanks man...now everything is configurable.
