[Q] CPU Governors
Like most people I've been trying to find that optimum balance between performance and battery life in my Aria. I'm running CM7.0.3 and the latest version of drowningchild's kernel. With that kernel I switched setCPU from ondemand to smartass, and I can already see the CPU spending most of it's time in either 400 or 480 MHz, but when playing a graphic intensive game it'll go up to 806 MHz and run great.
But, here's the problem. With things like less graphic intensive games, or playing videos, smartass doesn't want to scale up to a useful clock speed, and things get choppy. I switch back to ondemand and everything smoothes out again. I don't want to keep it in ondemand all the time though, because then it's spending half the time in 806 MHz and eating up battery unnecessarily.
So, is there a better governor option for me? Or maybe a way to "whitelist" apps within setCPU, to designate apps that always get the max clock speed?
tl;dr: smartass isn't that smart in certain situations. Is there a better way?
