In other words: It is your choice to use this software,
I am not responsible for any damage or problems!


Futures:
- under voltage support
- gamma control (to use it you need to run insmod /system/lib/modules/msm_kcal_ctrl.ko or add such file in init.d:
Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
insmod /system/lib/modules/msm_kcal_ctrl.ko
- sound control (faux code)
- gpu oc to 450Mhz
- gpu voltage control (you can access it via /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/vdd_table/gpu_mv_table default values are 945 mV, 1050 mV, 1150 mV to change the voltage run for example
Code:
echo "935 950 1150" >  /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/vdd_table/gpu_mv_table
- cpuquiet for best cpu hotplug policy, I suggest to use load_stats for best balance between battery live and performance
- cpu governors (default preservative): - LoUIS cache
- kernel runs in NEON mode
- optimized ARM RWSEM algorithm
- memutils optimization
- uksm - optimized RAM usage, using only a little bit of cpu power for that
- dynamic writeback - dynamically manage the dirty page writebacks with two different intervals, one when the screen is on and another when the screen is off. more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0#post42354290
- interactive gpu governor
- Linaro and compile optimization -Ofast
- other small changes, to read in github commits

Big thanks goes to:
- rebelos for SlimKat (base source for this kernel)
- DooMLoRD, alnikki25k, jeroenqui, aidfarh for they kernel for yuga, often explored they repos for interesting things and changes
- faux123, ak and francisfranco for they kernel for other devices, I have taken much from they work
- And others with I not remember now!
-

FAQ:
- this kernel should run on most AOSP 4.4 based ROM's but I am testing it only on SlimKAT, report on with ROM's it works too
- for now no OC support - Z is fast enough phone, but is is getting hot on high usage and eats the battery fast so I don't think OC is really usefully
- on default settings you will got lower benchmark score in for example Antutu it got ~17k instant 20k - this is because we are using preservative cpu governor as default but since they are no lags in every day usage I don't care about it! Change to inteliactive if you want higher benchmark scores

- Vanir
- DU
- Pabx
- OmniROM

Changelog:
v0.3.1
- fixed wakeup gestures - now they should work

v0.3
- gpu voltage control
- force run all cores on one freq when user sets other min/max freq
- small gpu code cleanup form xzaosp
- gamma control
- true cd-rom emulation mode
- doubletap2wake and sweep2wake via generic sysfs files
- fixed wifi speed (I had some problem to get my full network speed on wifi)

Excellent, will give it a shot on Vanir 4.4.2.

EDIT:

Doesnt work with Vanir, get past boot logo, during boot animation, it then goes into a boot loop, without the kernel logo being displayed again, screen gets lit (although still black)and just loops on and off like this,

Cheers

Does other kernels like MOEW works on it? Could you give me a logcat?

Very Nice. Tested on Pabx rom and it boots but serious issue when you hit the power button screen goes black but is still on Baseband unknown so wifi and cellular radio dont work

Thumbs up That is exactly the best kernel, in my opinion.

I tested it on SlimKat 4.9 weekly build.

Kernel confug with TricksterMOD:

CPU Governour: Preservative

FSync: On

SOC Temperaturlimt: On

CPU Clock 384-1512 mhz

GPU Clock: 400 mhz

Undervolt on all Frequencies: -37,5 mV

CPU Quiet: load stats

CPU powersave: very agressive


Soooo...this kernel is in beta stage ? are you kidding, @dragonnn ?

This is the best and fastest working kernel i have had for my Device and i will surely stick with it

Keep up the very good and hard work


Best Regard's
