will try this in a bit,but I'm curious, how many people see high Os usage?
Mine hasn't gone over 1O% since I' ve had the note.

is there some pattern of use that causes it ?

Can't wait to get my phone to test this promising kernel!

You should flash it via the CWM Manager from Chainfire. See here:

Been playing with it, pretty decent start

I'm wondering about 3.01 now in preparation for ics... not sure of any major differences between .35 and 3 as there is with the fun I've had porting 32 to 36 on tegra.

Hmm, stay tuned!
It is starting to look that way. I had really high android os usage thqt drained the bat in 6hrs with only a moderate load.

If the bat drain was all the aos with such a big drop in the percentage aos uses, i should see a corresponding increase in bat life.

I'll monitor it and report back on anything interesting.

The way I understand the AOS usage is that it represents % of battery drain.

Say you charge your phone to 100 and start using it non stop for 2 Hrs.
The main drain will be screen cpu and maybe network or the app you are using.
In that case, AOS will be almost nothing, like 5%. But your battery will have dropped to , say, 70%
Now charge your phone again, and leave it on standby for as many hours requested to get 70% of battery left. This would need many hours.
Obvioulsy, because you did nothing with the phone, the main drain there is the OS itself!

So to compare the old and the new kernel, they have to be tested the same way.

Say start with a full charge before going to bed and set an alarm in 8hrs after you unplug the phone.
Leave the phone on standby for 8Hrs and check the AOS usage after those 8Hrs.
Next night, repeat the process with the new kernel and see if there is any difference.

Looking good so far. I noticed that BetterBatteryStats wake lock stats now give me "Event Log Service" as the highest wakelock, 6 minutes in 6 hours. Is this due to disabling logs, and should we freeze that service so it would stop trying to log?
