r1 is r1a. I just copied to Sorry for the confusion.


What is KSM?

Kernel Samepage Merging. In layman's terms it combines duplicate chunks of memory freeing up space for even more stuff to be loaded in RAM. To try it out, open a terminal and run:
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run
After some time the kernel will check memory pages that have been marked as merge-able and do it's thing. See /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_* files for stats.

Voltage control is not (currently) in CM9. I will be "working on it soon"(tm), in the meantime try one of these 3rd party apps: Antutu CPU Master, SetCPU

This necessary for stock, and possibly some AOSP roms. I will be including a fixed liblights in the next update.
To take advantage of BLN, you'll need to install an app (unless you're on my CM9, it's built-in - Settings->Advanced->Sensors).
BLN control - Free

Coming soon.

Sounds like FJ_mod is not reading the settings directly from the kernel, but instead always using values internal to FJ_mod which end up blowing away your settings on wakeup . I'm sure he will update FJ_mod soon to fix the issue.

OK so i think I figured it out. For those on fjs roms. You have to disable andrev oc so it disables the CPU profiles set in fj-tools. I did this by using rom toolbox. Go into root explorer and browse to system/xbin and find the andrev oc file and rename it to andrev oc.bak then set a CPU profile with which ever app you are using and reboot. I'm using system tuner to both overclock and undervolt. This is working for me so far. You can check by going into settings ans clicking on CPU tweak. If it force closes then its disabled. I was checking logcats and it is no longer changing the CPU back to default settings on screen lock. Flap feel free to chime in if this is gonna break something else. Other wise no issues yet.

Thanks for sharing the work-around to FJ's roms!

This is a kernel update only. You will need a 3rd party app to manage the settings and make sure it has the option to "apply settings on reboot".

I thought I would be waiting weeks for a dev to release an ICS OC kernel. Thanks for the quick and wonderful work!!
