Support for new devices
If a feature of kernel tuner isn't working on you device and you know that your kernel supports it send me following information and I will do my best to add it
  • Use option in kernel tuner to dump a log on SD card
  • List off all frequency steps for GPU
  • sys fs entries(paths) and available options for changing it(for example 0 for off, 1 for on)
  • Code name for your device(eg. shooter is for evo 3d)

Recommended settings for HTC Evo 3D users(and basically all msm8x60 users)

CPU: 384-1512Mhz, Ondemand, Xondemand Governor(Lagfree if you don care about battery)
Voltage: -50mV,-75mV - (385Mhz-740mV, 1512Mhz-1125mV)
GPU: 2D: 266Mhz, 3D: 320Mhz
Idle Frequency: 486Mhz - lower frequencies can cause lag when unlocking
Screen-Off Frequency: 384Mhz
Buttons Backlight: As low as possible(for battery save) - 3%
Fastcharge: ON
Vsync: ON - (There is no use of setting it off, you will only get higher benchmark scores, nothing else, and it will drain more battery)
Scheduler: noop, row, deadline(personally noop but some say row is best)
SD Card Cache size: 2048-4096

This are my daily settings

Nice!
This is what I need
Will it work also for example with XxXPachaXxX TakeControl tweak?

Yes, it should work just fine
I didn't test it but it should work

Well,this is just an app that echoes 1 to a file in /sys/ so shouldn't break any other app,assuming the other apps don't chmod this file..

Anyone got an increase in performance? How does this MOD affect battery life? I'm assuming it increases battery drain as both cores are enabled permanently.

Would the on-demand scheme not suffice? I mean the system kicks in the 2nd core if the load gets high right? So what is the point in force-enabling them?

I am noob and therefore please don't flame me. I just want to know if there is a difference.

that's right, battery drain will increase

two reasons:
first, by forcing both cores online you get a permanent increase in performance, as opposed to increased performance on high cpu load. Because the second cpu only kicks in after the first one has processed a certain load, you will most likely get lag in case of a sudden increase in cpu load

second, and this is a common problem in custom kernels/governors, the second core tends to go in a deep sleep, which means it won't wake up at all. This mostly happens when you set minfreq to 192MHz, which is why most people set their minfreq to 384MHz
