Default [ROM] CM7.1-final, Deodexed, 2.6.35 kernel

Putting this up for those who've been inquiring...I simply integrated bits & pieces for the legend to improve what is already an awesome rom. I take no credit for this. Doesn't hurt to hit the thanks button though if this helps .



How's this different from CM7?
  1. 2.6.35 kernel (boots by default to 768/256-interactive; max=806, min=120)
  2. smartass & smartass2 governors
  3. compache/swap
  4. deodexed & zip-aligned
  5. tweaks for deodexed rom and sd read-ahead (3072 by default)
  6. removed rom manager & some default themes/wallpapers
  7. moved file manager to /data/app
  8. modified lock screen icons
  9. flying-in menu animations
  10. TGF's notification bar (notbar) patch integrated

What doesn't work/untested?
  • wifi tethering - activating them produces an error & breaks wife, in which case, a reboot is required
  • gps

Is this faster than CM?
can't claim that as i don't see a big jump in quad/linpack scores, though there are improvements & it does feel snappier (I may be biased though). you decide...

full rom here: DOWNLOAD
flash attached:
drowningkernel-8-9-1_mod1.zip
kernel w/ the last three items above included for flashing unto cm7
drowningkernel-8-9-1_mod.zip
just the kernel

CAUTION
  • do backup before doing anything
  • see alex' comments, post #9
  • if you encounter reboots/freeze (not getting this myself though) & wanna revert to your original/stock kernel, simply advance restore boot only
  • usual liability disclaimer applies

feedback is/are most welcome! if you have questions on TGF's notbar patch, please post on that thread instead.

The drowningkernel-8-9-1_mod.zip works fine with CM7.1.0 for me. THX a lot!
I like your lockscreen-icons and the statusbar-patch, but not the flying-in-animation, so I flashed the non-modified one.

What governors do you prefer? I'm using interactive, but never had a smartass/smartass2 kernel on my phone. Does one of these two give me advantages over interactive?
Or can you give me some details about smartass/smartass2 Min-Max-values for the legend?

you could learn more about it here. i'm using 806/122-smartass2. if you try to underclock below stock 245, it seems only the smartass governors give a quick response from sleep.

Just a small comment regarding kernel 2.6.35:

In my tests 2.6.35 was not significantly (or at all) faster than .32, neither could I observe improved battery life.

What actually held us back implementing .35 were the crappy WLAN and missing access point drivers. The sources HTC released are significantly broken - even for their original target "Espresso", and this is still a clear violation of the GPL (the sources they used to compile tiwlan_drv for Espresso/Legend are not at all equivalent to what they released).

That being said, if you don't care about WLAN at all you can use 2.6.35. I seriously wouldn't recommend that kernel though and would request you to add a warning to your post to make sure people don't start to complain about random reboots in CyanogenMod.
.
I don't use the XDA forum regularly any more. Too much distraction, not enough fun. Coding is fun.

If you see me posting I'm most likely disoriented and intended to use G+ or write exceptionally great code in Visual Basic. My G+ profile is actually a good source for random nonsense, unlike this signature which solely exists to divide this post and the next one.
