About

Following the popular franco.Kernel series I present you the new .35 tree based kernel for the 2.3.3 from LG and for the CM testing releases from mik.

(Because people keep flashing this **** with the wrong roms and come here crying "HALP" enjoy the big letter warning)
This kernel is not for 2.2 roms and I will laugh at you if you flash it together with 2.2. Not either will it work on miks 6.5.8 nor void forever...

Features & Changelog

Quote:


#4
* Added 652, 672, 691, 710 cpu frequencies
* Doubled busses frequencies - system will go faster but you'll possible lose some overclocking capabilities. Busses frequency OC > cpu OC.
* Added and tweaked Simple IO scheduler as it proved to be the fastest one for this device
* Added tun.ko and cifs.ko
* Added camera flicker bug fix
* Cleaned up some more debug ****
* One or two small tweaks

#3
* Completely rebased kernel
* No more blackscreen
* Based on CM's source
* All the tweaks and ****s you've been known about from me
* Franco magic?
* POWER
* BATTERY
* Well...I'll write a more detailed post later, too busy at the moment =)

08122011
- Touchscreen driver improved
- Same changes as the 27/11 release but now with wifi working


27112011
- Major speed up because fsyncs are not disabled
- SLUB memory allocator tweaked and made default
- Wifi Tethering fix attempt
- One or two other small tweaks and optimizations
- This release is labeled as a testing version


22112011
- Bye vsync toggle, it's not possible to change vsync without a kernel recompile
- Blackscreen bug fix attempt
- Touchscreen drivers optimized with the axis inversion workaround - changes by paolo, fserve, and me

12112011
- Vsync on/off toggle added. This is what I need be checked, I don't know if it's working: run this command via terminal or init.d script

Code:
echo "0" > /sys/module/mddi_hitachi_hvga/parameters/vsync_on
Echoing 0 it will disable vsync, echoing 1 will enable it.

- FSB/BUS overclock is lower, it will lower benchmarks a bit, but you won't notice any difference during normal usage and it will increase stability
- Obviously all the changes from the latest testing version are included
- This release is labeled as a testing version

02102011
- Smartass2 tuning
- Ck2 patch - system more responsive and noticeably faster
- Compiled with the latest Linaro 4.5.4 2011.09 toolchain
- Fix camera flicker - thanks Turducken
- Add Simple I/O scheduler and made the default - should fix the slow USB transfer bug
- net: Reorder incoming packets in PPPoLAC and PPPoPNS
- Misc fixes
- Should provide some extra battery power

19092011
- A lot of reverts to increase overall stability
- Smartass2 improvements
- BFQ i/o scheduler added and made default. VR scheduler makes the USB transfers slow
- Wifi change to drain less battery
- Clear RAM feature in Andy's rom works now
- Add Jhash3
- vfs_cache from 100 to 25
- init/calibrate backported from 2.6.39
- Some other improvements that can be seen in my github

29082011
- Reducing VM_READAHEAD from 4096 to 512. Should fix the occasional music stutter
- Some .config changes from fserve to increase battery life
- Tweaks and code cleanups from CAF to increase stability, battery and performance
- Cleaned up some governors
- Add SmartassV2 added yesterday from the original Smartass creator
- Re-written InteractiveX
- Vsync enabled by popular demand
- dirty_writeback_interval = 1500 centisecs
- Some reverts that should fix the reboots or random crashes
- Thanks across for the testing
- This release is labeled as a testing version

24082011
- Strange behavior with ext3/ext4 fixed
- More ARM architecture specific code
- Internet/data speed majorly increased
- **** legacy drivers removed
- Dunno what else
- This release is labeled as a testing version

21082011
- Filesystem tweaks from Code Aurora. Mainly ext3 and ext4 improved code
- Power management tweaks from Code Aurora
- Two Power management patches from Arco's kernel
- A lot of ARM architecture specific tweaks and improved code
- Some other small ****s
- This release is labeled as a testing version


16082011
- Battery display bug is fixed
- Terminal ****ting itself when closing fixed
- Headset button should work now too
- Some reverts to provide some extra stability


03082011

- Tweaks in the touchscreen driver
- Lots of reverts from backported code to improve stability
- USB should be fixed
- CFS scheduler updates
- Wi-fi should be finally fine (I hope because I haven't touched wi-fi **** code)
- Camera should work fine now too


01082011
This is a complete re-written kernel from scratch featuring all the performance and battery patches from the last version plus a lot of new code.
The changes are all in my github so I don't need to list them here. I need you guys to test the kernel and tell me what is working and what is not working, which bugs do you find, if the performance is good, if battery is good etc etc. I don't want posts like "BLUETOOH HANDS FREE DOESN'T WORK FIX PLX" or "WAHT IS THE BAST GOVERNOR AND OC HALP PLOX" I want informative posts about your conclusions, if it kernel paniced what is your environment, your OC, your governor... stupid and non helpful posts will be ignored. If you want a good kernel, do you job as an user and help me too.

Take note of this, I don't care nor will pay attention if you say you're having battery drain if: you flashed the kernel sooner than 24hours of your complain post, if you didn't wipe your cache partition before or after flashing it, or if you didn't wipe your battery stats. If any of these three conditions are met at the time of your posting I will simply ignore it.

People remember this is a pre-release, it's a gift for you all to test and play in the next days while I make it better, faster, more stable and the likes. Now I'll retire for a nice beach day after a hard nights work

Flashed it, seems stable at 710Mhz (which is the maximum my phone can get). Neocore 43.6@710Mhz/Smartass running on official 2.3.3. That is 10FPS higher than stock kernel and 2 fps higher than stock OC'd@710 stock kernel.

Will test further and post.
