PopcornKernel for the Galaxy Nexus
For 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 ROMs


The philosophy of this kernel is to combine a stable, snappy (real-use wise, not benchmarks) kernel with great battery life. We (me and jdkoreclipse) feel we have achieved the best balance of these in PopcornKernel.

Now on to the goodies!

Features:
  • Optimized for Size
  • Lots of debugging disabled
  • Gallimaufry governor (modded ondemand, 2-stage ondemand plus speed tweaks)
  • Aggressive governor(modded conservative, lots of tweaks to increase snappiness while saving power)
  • NoHz
  • SLQB
  • TUN
  • Disabled fsync
  • Swap support
  • CFQ, Deadline, and noop i/o schedulers
  • PegasusQ Governor from Samsung
  • Screen-off hotplugging added to AgressiveX, GallimaufryX, and InteractiveX governors (imoseyon)
  • ARM RWSEM Algorithm
  • Battery Life Extender - Ezekeel
  • Color Control - Ezekeel and supercurio
  • Fast Charge - Chad0989
  • TempControl - Imoseyon and Ezekeel
  • GPU OC Control - Imoseyon (modified by me)
  • SoundControl - Greg White and Ezekeel
  • Wifi Screen-Off Power Management - Francisco Franco

Changelog (Go HERE for the full Changelog)

v11.4
  • evdev patch to hold less wakelocks
  • GCC graphite optimizations
  • Some SIO (Simple IO Scheduler) Optimizations
Tweaks:
See HERE for all the tweaks and how to use them.

I also recommend PopcornScripts, a set of scripts by me and jdk to change kernel settings: http://rootzwiki.com...y-team-vicious/

ON REPORTING BUGS:
Please provide me with:
  1. a detailed description of the bug
  2. when the bug occured
  3. a way of reproducing it, if possible
  4. Your ROM and ROM version
  5. Kernel version, frequencies, and governor (along with any other relevant settings)
  6. logcat, dmesg or /proc/last_kmsg, whichever is applicable
NOTE: I will not look at bugs if they do not include the above, you must also be on a stable version of your rom (no alphas or betas) and you must not have any SetCPU profiles active.

Enjoy!

Directions:
  1. Download .zip
  2. Reboot into recovery
  3. Flash .zip in recovery
  4. Reboot
We are not responsible for anything that might happen to your device.
And no, your device will not magically make popcorn now, unfortunately.

Wow. I've just gone down from 100 to 97% of battery with 21 minutes of screen time. Fresh install in gallimaufry governor, left as is. Going to bed, will report sleep performance.

This looks insane good though, phone is as snappy as ever.

You're up to something good here mate, thanks!!
