Yup, both 2/18's ran fine (although not at great as 2/15-C) then jumped over to 2/26 and my phone felt like it was only operating at 400MHz and only had 128MB of RAM total installed (slow, laggy, choppy in apps, games and in the app drawer... power button took 3-5 seconds to turn on and wake up). Just flashed back to 2/15-C and my phone is running awesomely smooth again.

Whatever it is, my phone just flat out does not like the 2/26 version.

I find it so weird that you have such big problems with it when I haven't had any symptom remotely like yours. I know to a certain extent all our phones are their own monster but still... way weird to me

I had no issues with 2/26, perhaps just a corrupted download or a bad flash.

Entropy,

I just got back from a cruise, I've read for the last hour still have some catching up to do, lots going on. As far as the Ashmem issue I'f its affecting other users negatively, take it out or whatever you'd like to do. I just put 2/15 on and will work my way up. Before I left I did a full wipe and put back on 1/30 with uckh7, had no issues at all while away.
Thanks for all your hardwork, I'll be sure.to document if I have any issues.

Im with red5 on this. No major issues with 2-20 but 2-15c runs smoother. Even with my 2d only games were noticeably laggy. Will run with 2-15c for a few days to compare
The best advice ever

If you still don't understand what you are reading - STAY STOCK, DON'T FLASH ANYTHING.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones, I haven't had any issues with any of entropy's kernels.

Well, to confirm it's the base - please perform the diagnostics (skip right to Shark captures) in the known battery drainers thread.

I saw BT-AMP happen once on XWKL1, but it was when I was janking around with some experimental settings in the wifi driver and never again.

I'm 90% certain I ran the arpdrain test against KL1 and it was immune. Will try again later this week.

Hmm, if charging via PC USB, and it happens again, try to ADB in and pull /proc/last_kmsg

On other topics:
I'm going to revert that ashmem patch. I have no idea why red5 is having performance issues with it, but since it's clear that things go badly when switching between 18B and 26 that there is a delta, I'm going to go with it.

For the patches in 18A and B - I need more info because too many people skipped A.

I'll be uploading shortly.

It also contains a bunch of small recovery fixes INCLUDING swapping internal/external SD to be consistent with Android standards (and with CWM labeling)

Touch recovery is not planned at this time - It is too prone to user error.
*so much sig updating needed*

That sucks. Maybe red pill then?

I'll look into it - I think the main improvement there was removing a bunch of the "nos" in the confirmation screen, which does make sense - there are a few too many...
