just a small follow-up: Instead of telling people to stop UV because it can cause instabilities better try to explain them why a previous stable UV setting became instable after a kernel update suddenly. That's what confuses them, that's the reaso...

It's sad that Franco wants to remove the UV just becuase a few people don't understand how to use it. A lot of people also unlock their device and install a custom kernel and don't know what they're doing, they complain that something is broken a...

By using the apps Usemon and FPS meter to get an overlay of active cores, per core frequency and frame rate, I did a few tests on some games (Re-Volt and NOVA 3) and observed: All four cores were running constantly, most often only at 960 MHz bec...

Thus my conclusion: Four cores are not need to run most games, but they get online and cause increased temp and power consumption. To foster my assumption and the suggestion, I ran Antutu benchmark. One time with the default hotplug set...

No, mako_hotplug is not aware of temperature. The frequency gets thermally throttled below the cpufreq_unplug_limit which most likely keeps core #3 and #4 disabled. I haven't taken a look at the algorithm, but at you can check it yourself with t...
