F.A.Q:

1. Will this kernel drain my battery faster?

It depends on usage. In most cases you will however see a faster battery drain unless you change the frequency settings using an application such as SetCPU or Voltage Control.

2. Where did the name Triangulum come from?

The name Triangulum comes from the name of a galaxy within our local group. You can read more about it here.

3. What settings do you recommend in <insert cpu control app here>?

It really depends on what you find works best for you, it is a balance between battery life, responsiveness and how much heat it is going to produce on your wrist. Personally I have set the device to use the powersave governor which is more conservative on when it steps up the frequencies, but also bumped up the minimum frequency to 400MHz as to aid in response times, but have full clock at 1.60GHz.

4. Before installing I had adb enabled, why isn't it now?

I don't believe in enabling adb by default, for the same reason I will not run the kernel in insecure mode. As part of the process to enable MTP the system forgets if you have enabled adb.

This is great !

I cant wait to see what you whip up in the future..

EDIT: Perhaps init.d support ? MTP being the default storage mount ? SWAP support ?

Nice work! Will be interesting to see how it behaves if you are actually able to unlock the second core

init.d support is definitely possible, as is MTP. SWAP I'm a little more hesitant about, I'm not fond of swap on mmc devices due to wear cycles, but also the limited available memory (4GB) means it would be a sacrifice.

I agree with swap although it would be nice to experiment with.


MTP on the other hand tho I think would be a excellent idea pre-enabled.. Make life easier for more novice users who are not very confident with adb.
