Features/what this includes
Latest kernel
Methods of flashing
Recommended apps
Locating cpu% Eaters && other negative items towards battery life

Intro: I'm pwnyourace, this is only my second kernel to be released to the public, i made the umph kernel for the motorola triumph. I'm really still getting my feet wet with making kernels so yea, alot of my stuff will be based on others work, but credit is always given if it can be found.

What this includes
  • Based on Tiamats 8x60 branch, ill try to get the main points of the tiamat kernel also for those that arent familiar with it
  • OC up to 1944MHZ (tiamat)
  • SQLB (tiamat)
  • Simple IO, BFQ, V(R) I/O schedulers (tiamat)
  • Smartassv2, Lagfree govs (tiamat)
  • Tun, Cifs (tiamat)
  • Expose the vdd_sc values to the sysfs userspace (tiamat)
  • Snapdragon opts (ziggy)
  • Toasts updated GPU drivers (toastcfh duh)
  • Toasts new touchscreen drivers (toastcfh duh again)
  • 3D and 2D overclocked
  • ZRAM
  • ZCache
  • Swap support enabled

Disclaimer: What everyone else puts in kernel threads, about me not being responsible, ect.

Latest kernel

Methods of flashing
Joeykrim's "flashimage gui" app on the market using one of the zImage files from the zips
(To be added soon) Teamwin's "Kernel manager" app on the market.
Flashing via recovery using one of the zips here.

Recommended apps =)
CPU Master (personally what I use)
Nofrills - App to manage I/O scheduler, clock speeds & governors.
Adw ex or go launcher ex
Colorize widgets - Great widgets to replace the lpp ones for those converting to other launchers.
AppMonster(pro or free) - Great backup utility, automatically backs up all apps.(I like it better than TB)
GPS Status - Great application for finding satalites near you and helping get a quick lock.
Any go dev team app - Great dev team, all their apps are worth looking at.

Locating cpu% eating applications.

When in ADB shell type the following

top |grep app

or if your rom supports it htop is much better(Without grep, so just "htop")

Then look for items with high amounts of cpu% while the phone is idle.

v1 Initial Release

Will most likely stop mooching off tiamat and base this off the cm kernel when it get merged

My github may be a few days behind or few commits behind sometimes

Toastcfh for his amazing work with CM on the evo3d
Scaryghoul for being an inspiration and for the rubric for this thread
Tiamat for the base kernel
Josephmother for his help and answering my questions (before he retired)
Cyanogenmod for the amazing work they do period. lol
