vorkKernel-OC/UV Kernel for CM
Hi. The following kernel is presented to you by
This kernel is for Cyanogenmod and Miui. *Could* be incompatible with latest kangs or nightlies (after a kernel update from CM team). No support for stock or mcr...
It's incompatible with MIUI and CM Builds before #177
New vorkKernel Twitter Bot: Here
First I want to make clear that all credit goes to aremcee/arcee/rmcc (man so many nicks
). He did an awesome job with the kernel.
I just tweaked it a little bit to my needs.
- uv/oc support. OC up to 1,5GHz (With E-Peen version)
- AVP/System/RAM/GPU OC with E-Peen version
- 1,2 Ghz for batt safe version.
- Special tweaked (working!) Performance and Powersave Govenors which don't lock the freq to one level (they choose between 3-4 Freq steps)
- It's even possible to set max/min clock via setcpu or CMSettings!
- Voodoo sound. Thanks supercurio! So awesome
- Default IO-Sched is Deadline with a special flash storage tweak
- Slub allocator
- tweaked CFS cpu sched (Low latency)
- compiled with a tweaked toolchain (base linaro gcc - optimized for tegra2)
- VFP optimizations (vfpv3-d16) and overall compiler optimizations
- flags! (more below in the flag section)
- A App for easy downloading and configuring. Credits to kiljacken!
And the source code here.
The standard part:
I'm not responsible for melted phones or something like that...
The camera is unstable with E-Peen mode (due to AVP OC). After a reboot it needs to stabilize a few minutes (so you break it with every reboot again). Same for Bluetooth. Please don't report a problem regarding this. It's known and can't be fixed.
Credits to kiljacken for this awesome app! You need OI File Manager for the app (Comes with CM)!
(and if you refuse to use the app - or the app is refusing to work with you: here)
Only change something, if you want to enable OC - No need to touch anything else (like govenors, schedulers)
What are flags and how can I use them?
I recommend to use the App kiljacken made, because it's super easy for you guys. If you not want to use the app *sadpanda* then you can click this link. This is the file the app is fetching to generate the UI.
The layout is following:
Available for following device/Element style (more below)/the flag you need to add/Flag name in App/Description for general Flag/Choice name in app/actual value you need to add after flag name
If the last two points are added you first enter the flag name and than the value. For example: density230
You connect the flags with a: -
Example: -camera-ring ...
The script is configured to detect flags after vorkKernel-VERSIONNUMBER. So you can add some flags after this.
c = Checkbox
l = List you can choose things from
e = you can enter your own value
Error Reporting Guide
Start with rebooting, if that doesn't help, reflash CM and then the kernel, and check again. If you're using the updater app (make sure you have the latest version), use the error report function (and describe what you're problem is). If you're not using the app, then post what flags you are using, along with what your problem is.
Additionally I just want to point out that I'm not doing this as a fulltime job, so don't expect daily updates or something like that. I will try to fix a problem as fast as possible but in some cases it can take a while.
If you want to support me you can sign up on dropbox via my referral link or just push this nice thanks button .. If you want to donate you can donate to aremcee/arcee/rmcc something. I'm learning C and linux and vorkKernel is my learning project and it is a hobby for me. Anyway if you still want to support a poor student, I have a link in my signature
