Hi, some constructive criticism from a noob... if you don't mind!

I don't like the 30% reduction in the lowest brightness level. Yes, I know that the highest brightness level remains unchanged, so I can simply increase my default brightness to match the level I used before I flashed the kernel.

BUT... when the battery level is <10%, the phone automatically reduces the brightness to its lowest level. I know that I can manually reset the brightness again by going to Settings > Display but this is extremely troublesome, and the phone automatically adjusts it back to lowest when the screen goes off.

Can I humbly suggest that this tweak become optional in the next version of the kernel? Many thanks!

IIRC it is optional through recovery menu. So you can turn this feature off...
I am now @JVB, so can't verify

thats not the case because i dont use the force analog volume keys mode.
and it didnt do this in ,9,1, voodoo and 13d version.. i have reverted back to that now.

Yes that's correct.
You can turn off speedmod min brightness setting in cwm. Hardcore addressed this at k13c if I remember correctly.

I don't think so. The option at recovery is only if you use Auto Brightness:

I had it disabled, but since I use manual brightness, the option doesn't affect me.

Just to be sure, I'll reboot into recovery now and see if the option is available. In the CWM menu you say?

Edit:

I'm in recovery now, specifically in the SpeedMod ULK > Color & Brightness options.

There are four options here: Neutral, Cold and Warm Colors, and "Disable darkest auto-brightness level". I already selected the last one. At the bottom of my screen this is confirmed by the line "Selected options: AUTOBRIGHTNESS_NO_DARKEST".

I don't think that's what I'm talking about. As far as I can tell, that option only affects the auto-brightness setting, not the manual settings. Which means there is still a 30% reduction in the minimum brightness even if I select this.

@hardcore

check supercurio's initiative about the GIT HUB for gingerbread kernel

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1040291

maybe that could bring faster / easier development

Hardcore's kernel has always been one of my favorites. I hope he can work with the new unified github that supercurio and many other guys are participating in so that we can all benefit! I'm looking forward to a Hardcore Gingerbread kernel!

OK, then its description is little bit confusing.
