Default VZW GS3 Custom Kernel Experiences

Hey guys,

As many of us try out the various custom kernels for the various custom ROMs, we like to share our experiences, good or bad. However the problem with doing this is that we often clutter the ROM thread with unrelated kernel talk.

So here is the perfect thread to share your experience.


ALL THAT IS ASKED OF YOU IS THAT YOU LIST THE ROM AND KERNEL AND THEIR VERSIONS IN YOUR POST AND PLEASE DO NOT POST MIRRORS... JUST LINK TO DEVELOPERS THREAD IF LINKS ARE REQUESTED

THANK YOU

Awesome thanks for creating this page and since I am here has anyone used faux Kernel with clean rom and if so is it better than the stock kernel when it comes to battery life?

Never heard of Faux but LK 1.2.1 is giving me wonderful battery life. First discharge cycle and only used 4% in 1hr 5min! And that was with 15 minutes of Facebooking and a few texts =)

I actually used faux123 kernel over the past few days and my battery life seemed about the same, but the phone definitely ran smoother...I imagine that my battery life would have increased if I stayed on longer but I am currently testing the available kernels to see which I like better... I'm checking out KT747 now on CleanROM

Let me know how it turns out. I am currently running faux123 and also agree that the battery life is about the same when used with clean rom.

I'm at 15 hours and only down to 61%, running CleanROM 5.5.1 and Faux123 with optimized settings as mentioned in the CR thread.

I usually leave my phone charging overnight but I'm going to leave it unplugged to keep tracking the amazing battery life I'm getting from this combination of ROM and kernel.

Will post a snap later....

Default Kernel w/ CleanROM 5.5.2

I recently installed CleanROM 5.5.2 (has the patch). I had been running Synergy and, although I wasn't displeased with it, I just had some extra time - thought I'd look at something different for giggles. Anyway . . .

I was also looking for a kernel since I was putting the effort into flashing. I tried the latest Lean Kernel first. It seemed to work, but when I ran some of the speed test apps, it didn't give the best numbers. I know that the numbers don't tell the entire story, but at least it's a start.

I then flashed the stock kernel. It too didn't give great numbers. In fact, they were similar to the Lean Kernel tests.

I finally flashed the latest Ziggy kernel. It's working very well and I don't have it over clocked. I'm running it at the stock speeds and it's giving me better performance numbers than Lean Kernel and the stock kernel. It's giving me no reason to try anything else, right now.

I was going to provide the link to the Ziggy kernel, but since I don't ahve the requisit number of posts, I can't provide it. You'll have to look for it if you're interested . . . sorry.

I'm looking forward to hearing about other people's experiences - especially compared to Ziggy's kernel.

One minute was enough, Tyler said, a person had to work hard for it, but a minute of perfection was worth the effort. A moment was the most you could ever expect from perfection.

Been using Lean kernel by Imoseyon since the day I rooted. For me it's by far the best kernel. I'm at 1720/384mhz and voltages set to Imoseyons suggested settings.
