Default [KERNEL] 2.6.32.61-nAa-jb-06 [6/7/2013] [NEW WIFI/USB] - Unified kernel+CWM Recovery


Before unlocking your bootloader, read this thread
If you brick your device, you are the sole responsible.



Preface:
  • Read through this post. Don't rush into flashing. Be sure you understand the process before you start or you risk damaging your device
  • This is a custom 2.6.32 kernel developed for Android Jellybean 4.x. However, as of nAa-06 Android gingerbread is also supported. This kernel only works for robyn, a.k.a. X10mini
  • Do NOT try this kernel on other Android versions or phones - you are totally unsupported
  • This kernel uses a custom mtd partitioning with larger /system partition to hold the extra JB calories. If you are moving from another custom kernel, EXCEPT 2.6.29-nAa-jb to this one, you MUST first format /system /data and /cache via the embedded CWM recovery
  • If you want to flash another kernel after having flashed this one, you MUST first format /system /data and /cache via the embedded CWM recovery



Features:
  • Based on SEMC 2011 ICS sources, re-based on Linux kernel 2.6.32.61
  • Built with arm-eabi-4.4.3 toolchain
  • CWM-v6.0.2.8
  • Idiot-proof feature: will boot into recovery if an unsupported or no android version is found
  • Custom mtd partitioning scheme suitable for JB
  • Modular recovery flashing support
  • Much more RAM than stock for improved multitasking experience (shakira: 186MB, robyn/mimmi: 187MB)
  • Patched to latest 2.6.32.61 release
  • kgsl: SEMC 2011
  • ARM: many backported fixes and optimizations from CAF 3.x
  • Netfilter: many backported fixes and optimizations from CAF 3.x.
  • net/iptables: Fully working networking and iptables support. Fully working traffic control via data limits menu of JB
  • Backported tiny-rcu
  • Superior AHB overclocking - improved responsiveness and performance. 'Buttery-smooth' experience
  • improvements: memcpy, kmalloc, jhash, sha1, scheduler, optimized CRC32, LZO, vmalloc, pm_suspend
  • Two-way call recording
  • binder, lowmemorykiller fixes backported from CAF 3.x
  • WEXT tiwlan
  • pmem: backported from CAF 2.6.35
  • modular undervolting
  • tripple buffering support
  • Supported IO Schedulers: NOOP, BFQ, AS, DEADLINE, CFQ, VR, SIO
  • net: Stochastic Fair Blue scheduler
  • ZRAM + google snappy compression backported from CAF 3.x
  • ZCACHE backported from CAF 3.x
  • Cleancache backported from CAF 3.x
  • Kernel compression: LZO for best kernel booting times
  • Makefile: optimization flags
  • dcache: vfs_cache_pressure -> 25
  • Proportional Rate Reduction for TCP
  • fsync enable/disable toggle at: /sys/module/sync/parameters/fsync_enabled (enabled by default)
  • Many many more fixes and improvements available @ github


Defaults:
  • Scheduler: CFS
  • RCU: Tiny RCU
  • Memory Manager: SLQB
  • IO scheduler: Deadline
  • CPU governor: smartassV2
  • CPU_FREQ_MAX=604800
  • CPU_FREQ_MIN=245760

FAQ:
If you have any issues, please read the FAQ thread first: TODO

Requirements:
Install:
Uninstall:
  • Flash back to stock using SEUS

    OR
  • Format /system /data and /cache via CWM and THEN flash another kernel via Flashtool
    Any other way is completely unsupported, don't ask how to unbrick if you can't read the instructions

Notes:

Dualtouch (for synaptics):
By default dual touch is disabled for improved touch accuracy and avoidance of the 'ghost touch' side-effect.
  • If you want to enable the fake DT by andrej456, you have to insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
    Quote:
    echo "1" > /sys/module/synaptics_i2c_rmi4/parameters/cfg_dt
  • If you want to enable the fake DT by dx, you have to insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
    Quote:
    insmod /system/lib/modules/synaptics_i2c_rmi4_dt.ko

Sources:
  • The linux kernel is GPL'ed, everyone who does modifications should make them publicly available.
  • Making a kernel thread for posting a difference in the ramdisk or for a so-called 'improved governor / io scheduler' is legal, but plain stupid, disrespectful and wasteful
  • I accept patches any way possible. Basically I only read pms if they contain some suggestion or patch Credits go to the author obviously

Disclaimer:
I can't be held responsible if this Kernel bricks your device or makes it explode in your hands! Use it at your own risk!

VDD levels

From 03 onwards, I've ported the vddlevels functionality from msm7x30 so that we can variably change the voltage level of the frequency we want without the need for external modules.
The current voltage information is available at:
Quote:
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/vdd_levels
E.g. the defaults after flashing the kernel should be:
Quote:
root@android:/ # cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/vdd_levels
122880: 3
245760: 4
320000: 5
480000: 6
604800: 7
614400: 7
633600: 7
652800: 7
672000: 7
691200: 7
710400: 7
729600: 7
748800: 7
768000: 7
787200: 7
806400: 7
825600: 7
844800: 7
864000: 7
To change for example the voltage level of the 122880 frequency, you could do:

Quote:
echo '122880 0' > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/vdd_levels
If you cat this file again, you should see that the voltage level is picked up. The new voltage level is picked up when the CPU will scale to the particular frequency level.

The undervolting tickbox in the 'Performance Settings' of the latest MiniCM10 nightlies already uses the new interface. The values that are set there are the same ones as those passed by the old undervolting module:

Quote:
root@android:/ # cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/vdd_levels
122880: 0
245760: 2
320000: 3
480000: 5
604800: 6
614400: 7
633600: 7
652800: 7
672000: 7
691200: 7
710400: 7
729600: 7
748800: 7
768000: 7
787200: 7
806400: 7
825600: 7
844800: 7
864000: 7
Do I need undervolting?
You dont NEED undervolting. It can save though hours of some battery life during the day.

Overvolting?
Even though the interface allows you to overvolt, I don't suggest doing so. It will result to instabilities or crashes and is totally unsupported.

Performance?
Undervolting decreases the performance results - this is to be expected.


Performance comparison vs .29 kernel
+20%-30%



Bugs confirmed:

- Cypress is not as smooth as with .29
- Bluetooth is not pairing sometimes

kernel boot preview :



and some charts to show you perf

i'll will explain a little more the charts later, but have not much time now...

some raw data first :

all has been done at 729MHz

on RC .32 :
antutu :
fps2D:


just to have an overview of perf on .29 (reference), .32-alpha1 and .32-RC (that you can say it is the released kernel)


as you can see, .32-RC is about to be as good as .29 (if not better!) but alpha1 was not that efficient... some long work has been done in between
most of the work has been perform on IO optimising and 2D/3D that where extremely poor on the first .32 builds


__________________________________


now some other charts and explanations:
.32-RC is much more efficient on 2D/3D than .29 :

this chart shows the improvement on 3D mostly


__________________________________

on that second chart, the results are (.32 perf / .29 perf)*100 :
so these results are percentages compared to .29

noticeable points:
alpha was extremely poor on IO (45% of what did .29) and 3D (35% of the reference)
whereas .32-RC has higher 3D perf than .29 and so is more than 100% (133%)[/B] which is really cool and promising




many thanks to nAa for the great work done !!! and many thanks to D_d for that awesome kernel boot-animation !

For a external rev, is see this 2 bugs is not for degrade is for help,

1., the lights don't work, is only in higher light and I can turn down is a minimal but I report it

2., the governors of cpu don't work is always on ondemand this is cause to consume to much the battery

3., mmm no for the moment
