IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT #2
REALLY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
Please read it!


We ( @patalao and me) have decided to create a new thread since the @op from the thread we were using seems to be inactive, so doing this will give us more freedom for editing the main post and providing you guys with more information.
I also need to thanks all the awesome people that have made this possible, therefore thanks to @soniCron and @Alcolawl for being the creators of the original guide and all the fantastic tweaks that you have made.
Thanks to @flar2 for his great app (EXKM) and his kernel and to @patalao for his superb tweaks and all the help he has provided me.

All that you are about to read is based on THIS THREAD so go there and thanks @soniCron for it.
I'll go ahead and copy and paste some of the firsts paragraphs so those who don't know what this all is about can understand a bit.

I'm about to tell you how to get buttery smooth, lag-free performance with insanely good battery life, using an old school governor featured in practically every kernel... This tweak is applicable to every phone with any ROM or kernel--stock or custom--that provides the Interactive Governor.
Yeah, yeah... everyone promises good battery with great performance, but who actually delivers? Maybe it isn't as smooth as you want, or maybe it requires something your kernel or ROM don't support. Or maybe the battery life promises just aren't what you expected. There's always some awful compromise. Not here!
This isn't a guide to get 36 hour battery life... provided you never use your phone. That's deep sleep optimization, which is lovely and all, but what good is the phone if you can never use it?! And with the new Marshmallow Doze feature, this strategy is becoming a thing of the past. What I'm talking about is 7-14 hour screen on, actual hands-on usage times! Without compromising anything, you can get 7-8 hour screen on usage with regular, no-compromise usage habits: daytime visible screen brightness, both radios on, sync on, network location on, all the regular usage features, the whole kit and kaboodle... all smooth as a baby's butt and snappy as a Slim Jim! (Up to 14+ hours if you can stand minimum brightness and WiFi-only with a custom ROM and other stuff turned off! And this is with stock voltages and full frequency range--you'll likely get even more if you choose to optimize those as well!)

However, it should be noted that this does not apply to gaming, heavy camera use, etc. Anything that is an automatic battery killer in and of itself. There's nothing that can be done about anything that forces the phone to utilize its maximum resources all the time. But you should know that by now. Further, this guide is about optimizing the CPU as much as possible. It does not cover things like eliminating wakelocks so your phone sleeps well, removing unnecessary and battery draining stock apps, keeping your screen brightness down*, and all that stuff that's been covered in other posts ad infinitum. Those optimizations are up to you.

If you really want to know the principles of this tweaks, please go to this thread since there everything is really well explained and I know you guys just want to apply the tweak and forget about everything behind it, so just keep scrolling!
  • Voltages and Frequencies:
So recently I have been investigating about the Voltages of our device (since that is a really useful information to know) before that we only have the Nominal frequencies (If you don't know what I am talking about go ahead and read @soniCron thread because I won't explain it) we could develop some tweaks with that, but we were pretty much making blind shots, guessing and hoping that all will be right. Well, now that we have all this information we can optimize our tweaks even more so expect new updates and rework for the current tweaks and of course new ones.

I have made a little spreadsheet with the Nominal and Efficient frequencies for you guys, so you can take a look and maybe modify our tweaks to your needs, since, all of them have been tested by @patalao, our tester and me, which involves that are tested without usage and not yours.



No much to say about frequencies so we move right away to the voltages



We have more to talk about this, as you can see OverClocking have NO down points since it will consume the same voltage as the maximum stock clock speed and it will give use more performance. UPDATE: It's true that the voltage it's the same, but there is some downpoint which are explained in this posts. Here and here Thanks to @bedalus for pointing itn out!
Notice that the voltages on CM ROMs are higher that on OOS and that the values were shown there are from OOS. We are already working on a flashable zip or script for modifying those values since cannot be modified anyway else.

On the Snapdragon 820 (Our chipset) things have changed a lot from the previous chipsets like the 808 (Nexus 5X) and 810 (Nexus 6P). Now we are back to the Quad-Core, which is good, more cores= more battery consumption but we continue with the Little.BIG set up, where we have a Little Cluster (really efficient and fast) and a Big Cluster (slow but good for heavy loads). On previous chipsets, the Little kernel was really good on low-mid clock speeds and the Big cluster was really good on high frequencies and bad on low. Well, this is still true, but not we don't have such difference than before. Our Little cluster is going to be "the main thing" as it was before, but now the Big cluster has a really low consumption on lower frequencies so can be really good for sustained loads which only demand low~mid clock speeds as well it will be used as a quick burst for help the Little cluster to not reach High freq here it's not that efficient anymore.
  • How this affect your device (ROM/KERNEL)
You might NOT get the same results as me or other, it will depend mainly on your usage, secondly on the kernel and finally on the ROM that you currently using.
Not all the tweaks work the same way for certain kernel, what I mean with this is that the battery life/performance might be better running X kernel with X tweak, but the same tweak applied to another kernel might not be that good at all
Wait what? What you want to tell me is that some kernel is better than other, right?
Yes and No, Some kernel is better than other but also, some kernel perform better with certain tweaks as can be seen in the following screenshots (This test have been performed using AnTuTu tester with a clean install of last RR + the Kernel, nothing else. I know is a benchmark and the perfect thing whole be a real life test but that takes days, so If somebody wants to do it, I'll post the results)
Disclaimer:: This is just a profile (tweaks) for the interactive governor. If you experience any unexpected fc, reboots, massive stuttering/lagging, etc, this profile isn't most likely not responsible for that.
  • What About Touchboost?
Since I've noticed that a lot of people was asking about Thouchboost, I decided to add this little explanation from @soniCron

" Touchboost is a nifty feature in a lot of kernels (including stock on Nexus 5X) that jumps up the frequency so that you experience minimal lag. However, with all the above settings, touchboost is usually detrimental to the efficiency of the device!
We generally want to keep the CPU on the lowest possible frequency as much as possible, and touchboost interferes with that. Further, because we've set up the maximal and minimal efficient clock rates, as well as burst processing from the 2nd CPU core, we don't need touchboost!
If your kernel allows you to shut it off, try to do so and see if the responsiveness of your device is acceptable. On the OP3 (and pretty much all the devices), touchboost adds no perceptual performance gain and only hurts efficiency and battery life. If your kernel doesn't allow you to turn off touchboost, try another one.
Your battery life will thank you! "


With all that been said, you shouldn't confuse Touchboost with CPU Boost and more specifically Input boost. Both are used to boost the clock speed of our device whenever we touch the touchscreen, so we don't suffer any lags.
The difference is that Input boost can be configured and Touchboost cannot, making it a really inefficient.
  • MY DEVICE LAGS!!! WHY?!?!
First of all, it's a "normal" thing, as I have stated before, all these tweaks have been done for fit my usage or certain usage which is most likely not the same as yours. Because this, when the are put on a certain scenario the might stutter or lag just a bit (If you are experimenting huge lags, you have done something wrong)
And yes, this can be fixed. We have a couple of ways of fixing it:
  • First of all, Check If the tweaks have been applied correctly
  • Our first one is modifying the Input boost (not touchboost) most of our tweaks have an already established Input boost clock speeds and time, you can incise does too a bit. For example, we have 960(Mhz) for all the CPU at 40ms you could bump it up to ~1036(Mhz) and 42ms, don't modify too much this values since it will potentially increase your battery drain.
  • Our second tool for fixing lags is min_sample_time , my recommendation is to increase the value by 5000 each time till you no longer suffer any stutter or lag.
  • Try another tweak, for example;
    If you are using Project X.A.N.A Battery, try using Balanced option...
Still having lag?
  • Get rid of unnecessary (background-)apps
  • Try a different IO-Scheduler
  • Try another profile

My phone still uses too much battery
  • First of all, Check If the tweaks have been applied correctly
  • Make sure that you have disabled touchboost.
  • Set brightness to a lower level.
  • Use a dark / black theme
  • Don't play games all day
  • Try other tweak, for example;
    If you are using Project Zhana Balanced, try using Battery option...

================================================== ===============================================

Introducing Advanced Kernel Tweaks [A·K·T] | All-in-one Project
All the profiles will be featured there, some make sure to check it out!


Over here

================================================== ===============================================

Project Zhana & X.A.N.A v4.2: (Everybody should try it!!)

Go to this post for the full lenght explanation.
This tweak has all the new discovery voltages and some other new techniques, giving us great battery life without losing performance

The battery could be even better than FairPark *14 h SOT*


GhostPepper:

Uses a quantized, frequency-aligned parametric curve to influence low core clock rates while providing extremely smooth transitions from each clock rate and exceptional battery life
Really well-defined clock speed escalation for a good battery and performance.

FairPark:

There have been a lot of controversy about this tweak lately. So after you complain, this will NOT work for all of you guys.
For me, it works perfectly and it accomplished all that I'm going to state, but maybe you guys will experiment lags.
This tweak is not for everyone.
Probably the most battery efficient tweak ever created, fantastic battery with extremely smooth performance even playing games as Clash Royale or Pok?mon GO.
You can easily get 10 hours SOT or even more (If you don't play any games) just texting, browsing and so on could give you even 12 hours SOT.

HawkPepper:

As you might notice by the name is the union of the 2 tweaks above, GhostPepper for the Big cluster and HawkTail for the Little cluster, as GhoostPepper is highly optimized for the Big cluster and HawkTail for the Little.
Performance wise should be as good as GhostPepper but in terms of battery should be considerably better.

EOL Profiles:
You can still use them, but I won't give further support for them

HawkTail:

An advanced, modern profile that is both battery efficient and highly performant
It should be as battery efficient as GhostPepper but giving that extra performance for "high-end" games, as that was the only complaint on GhostPepper

Ketrel:

Really battery efficient tweak but only for light usage, when comes to playing games and some heavy multitasking the battery drain will increase exponentially

    In case you guys still want to use the old method:
    Keep scrolling to the third post, all that you need is there
    You can also check this video, as a picture is worth a thousand words - but a video, a million!

  • My settings don't show up after I reboot! What am I doing wrong??
  • If you are using [A·K·T] head to this post and scroll to the FAQs over there
    If you are using EX Kernel Manager, tap the power icon to the right of the setting after you set it. If you are using a different kernel manager, check with that developer to see how it's implemented. Also, give the kernel manager a few minutes after the device boots. The settings aren't applied immediately, so check back after 3 minutes and you should see the correct values.
  • Why is one of my CPUs not letting me change a setting or set a certain frequency?
  • The device may be thermally throttling and had turned off that CPU or limited it. Turn off your device and let it cool for 5 minutes, then try again. (Keep it unplugged and make sure you don't have any apps running that might be trying to use a lot of CPU while the device is off.)
  • These settings don't work/I'm not getting great screen on time!
  • You probably haven't disabled touch boost. YOU MUST DISABLE TOUCHBOOST, OR THIS WON'T SAVE YOU JACK SQUAT!!
    And keep in mind these tweaks have been tested on certain scenario that is not the same as yours
  • My kernel editor won't let me set [whatever]Mhz for a value you showed!
  • Either you have done something wrong, or you're using a kernel/device combo that isn't ElementalX on OP3, for which this guide was written. Follow the instructions in the first post to determine the appropriate settings for your own device!

Ok then.
First, thanks to @Asiier for making this thread with a more detailed explanation about the profiles, specially for our SD820.
As @Asiier said the profiles may not work the same for everyone because each one of us uses the phone different, so please take that in mind before filling the thread with questions why it works for Y but not for X.



HOW DID I START

I`ve started by releasing the Fusion Beta profile on Ex Kernel Manager thanks to @flar2.

After seeing almost all profiles from Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P threads i released the first version.
It was a fusion(that's why the name Fusion) of several profiles into one, but using the SD820 frequencies for our device.
After all this time and working alongside with great devs like @Asiier, @Mostafa Wael, @Senthil360 and many other users on our Slack channel i've improved my profiles to the point of releasing 2 new ones called FusionB and FusionP.
This time i've worked on them not just for me but for the entire community of our OP3, taking in mind tests maid by users on Slack channel (our private channel for development of profiles and much more).



Profiles

FusionB
This is a balanced profile.
Working alongside with testers and evolving from previous works i've came across with FusionB, a profile intended to be used out of the box with your phone.
You can expect a smooth experience without compromising battery to much.
This is based on the load percentage of the cpu.
Better than stock values, this profile should use almost all frequencies from little cluster(scale up one by one) and use the big cluster to more heavy duties till 1900 frequency jumping to the highest one just when needed.

FusionP
Based on FusionB this profile brings a more "agressive" way to scale frequencies.
It will scale frequencies sooner(regarding load values from cpu) and will use more the big cluster to provide more performance doing the tasks on hands.
Battery should not take a big hit but using heavy demanding tasks you can expect a higher drain.


Note:This aren't the normal profiles used some time ago.
This are beyond governor settings and go up till HMP values.
This will be provided as a single script on AKT script together with all the profiles from @Asiier, @Mostafa Wael and @Senthil360.
Older versions are still available below on hided content but won't be updated(at least some time soon).

Releases:
FusionB and FusionP ( 02 / 01 / 2017 )


Changelog:

New year,new start.
This will be first release.
Next updates will have changelogs accordling.

OLD VERSIONS:
This are the old one's and will still be available on my AFH but won't be updated.
There are 3 categories of profiles.(maybe more will come)

Thunder
This was made thinking only on a very fluid experience
It is set for speed, not battery.
It`s a performance profile and intended more for 3D Gaming and for those apps that needs more "power" to have a fluid experience.

Fusion
Set for a balanced between performance and battery this one should be what most of users want.
It should give you more or less the same performance as stock but with an improvement on battery.
This is what you should expect more or less for the new Fusion(depending on many factors this could be or not achived by you):





















Icecold
Set for extreme battery saving this one should suit those wich use the device for low end tasks.
This is an underclocked profile and because of that it isn't suitable for all.

How to use a profile with Ex Kernel Manager App
How to use a profile?
1-You need Ex Kernel Manager App
2-Download the desired profile and rename it removing ". txt"
3-Move the profile to sdcard/ElementalX/gov_profiles.
4-Before using any profile please uncheck all "set on boot" in Ex kernel manager and then reboot.
5-After reboot load the profile and then set on boot the following:

For all the profiles including mine, @Asiier and @Mostafa Wael

On CPU tab:
Governor settings
Input boost frequencie and input boost milliseconds
Touchboost

Because my profiles (and future @Asiier profiles) have more than governor settings this is what you also need to set on boot on mine and @Asiier profiles:

Memory tab:
Low memory killer
Adaptive low memory killer
Dirty ratio
Dirty background ratio
Min free kbytes
Vfs cache pressure

On Miscellaneous tab:
I/O Scheduler
Advanced I/O options
Read ahead kb
Tcp congestion algorithm

On tools/user settings tab:
Swappiness (add this /proc/sys/vm/swappiness)


For Icecold profile set this extra to be applied on boot:

Cpu tab:
Max CPU frequencie (Big Cluster)

Graphics Tab:
Max GPU frequencie











Credits:
All credits goes for all the users that shared their own profiles on Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P respective threads and of course for Me @Asiier, @Mostafa Wael and @Senthil360 for bringing this ones to our device.

Introducing...
Shotgun!

Strategy
This profile's main goal is to provide absolute maximum performance when needed, but lies low quite well. You see, some times I see the CPU hitting some of the high freqs of 1190 while making something as simple as watching YouTube or playing some spotify tracks needlessly, and sometimes I feel it is a bit slower than it should be in things like brute multitasking. Most profiles do aim at bringing a mid-ground to rest on. But with the sensible words of one of my favourite idols Jeremy Clarkson, he says 'Power solves everything' and right he is. By eliminating the mid freqs of the Little cluster and efficiently using some specific frequency steps, you get some power savings by staying on lower freqs as much as possible, and even on brutal tasks you get the job done faster as well, since the CPU will give you all the power to finish the job as fast as it can, and hit back to idle faster. Some may be worried about the power consumption with that turbo policy, but as it can be viewed from @Asiier OP's graphs and info, the difference in the voltage is not that high to make you that worried at all, and even numbers say it. I got a mighty 7.5 hours SOT over more than a day on OOS 3.2.7 with Mono kernel (tbh i used to get that value, but now I get it so easily without any extra battery conservation techniques) and i get better performance as to my usage patterns. As for the big cluster, I chose to stick with the stock Big cluster settings for better efficiency with slight tweaks to make it a little bit more bursty and lie low quicker. @Asiier I must point out something there. In your OP you advised (sort of) to tweak the big Kryos to be acting in a bursty manner. Well that is partially right, coz these big Kryos are no A57s where they heat up badly if engaged, rather their sustainable performance is quite lovely, and the fact that as much as the little cluster being in charge of most of your tasks as the 'main cluster', it is not being relied on as much as it was in the S810, and the big cores take charge of the load much more than it was in the S810. So it is a bit tricky to tweak now, coz you don't want it to be very dormant like the A57 coz that will sacrifice performance and smoothness noticeably.

Also take that into consideration

Also another thing that I want to clarify for everyone, what has the largest footprint in rendering some profiles laggy/more battery consuming or very efficient/lagfree is the ROM. You see, when you test the 'nominal' freq for a certain task, it also depends on the ROM. A quick example, if you wanted to see which is the nominal freq for scrolling a simple webpage or even a normal page without lags, by locking the freq to a certain step to test, while you do the scrolling test, there are background processes that inevitably take place whenever you use the phone. A stock OOS for instance potentially has more background processes running than say CM, and CM nightlies specially when they introduce a highly experimental change, can have some more background process (most likely you see the 'CyanogenMod system' ranking highest in your battery consumer apps) than a more stable nightly, and an AOSP may be having even less. A carefully debloated OOS can have less background services going on as well. Not to say a ROM is better than the other, but each ROM behaves uniquely and therefore when you scroll the webpage on say CM, it may be a tad smoother than when doing the same task on OOS with a specific profile, coz the frequency that is set to be used when scrolling the webpage, by any means, actually has to do the work of scrolling AND handle the background services running (be it a needless wakelock or a necessary service for some system apps or user apps, hence changing a CM nightly can actually cause some weird issues)
Now why don't you see this with the stock interactive governor settings? Coz it is like 'generic' settings that obeys these wakelocks and background services, and they will ramp up the freq readily with no 'restrictions', unlike custom settings profiles like mine, where I limit the CPU to use some certain freqs and cap the others, or Asiier's with whatever philosophy he uses.

In my opinion, the ROM has more effect on performance with each profile than a kernel. Of course a certain Kernel can have some battery tweaks or performance tweaks undergone, but they have the same effect as on the stock generic settings, in other words, these optimisations can already be felt even on stock settings and hence I sort of exclude it from the equation, since your target is to improve upon the stock governor settings


I suggest as always to turn off touchboost and use low input boost freqs for more time as always, but if you feel the need to use Touchboost or increase the input boost parameters, no problem at all. My usage is typing, reading, gaming for an hour or maybe slightly more, lots and lots of YouTube streaming and video playback, Spotify, WhatsApp and Telegram, XDA checking of course and some off-screen music playback. This profile has been tested on OOS 3.2.7 + Mono/Boeffla kernel, Arter97's CM13 + Arter97's custom kernel, OrionOS 11 Oct with its stock kernel

Shotgun_v1.0 EXKM profile here
init.d script here
Shotgun_v1.6 EXKM profile here
Shotgun_v1.7.6 EXKM profile here

->It is not 100% true that a newer version is better for you, but 99% it is <-
Changelist
  • Shotgun v1.0
    initial release
  • Shotgun v1.6
    -> eliminated more freqs for both little and big clusters, big cluster should be a little bit more dormant. Should be much
    smoother AND more battery friendly
  • Shotgun v1.7.6
    -> should be working fine without ANY Touchboost/Input boost/Bob boost settings (yes set input_boost freq to 0 freq for
    litte and big cores anf for 0 ms to turn it off)
    -> more smooth and battery friendly
  • >>>Shotgun is EOL after v1.7.6<<<

    Burnout PR

    -> Burnout PR1, make sure to apply the gears here
    -> Burnout PR2 Golden!. No gears needed, this is the absolute performance you can get! Gamers be cautious, this is NOT intended for gaming at all. Heavy browsing might be a bit warmer than your taste too. I have added some changes that work well with AOSP/CM LineageOS?/CAF Nougat but it seems that OB9 does NOT work as well as I expected.

Legacy: (imo Burnout PR2 moved leaps after that, but i never delete my trials since we are not the same
An intermediate profile has been cooked as well, dubbed as Burnout_Extreme. Learn more about it here


People who fail to automatically load the settings after booting even though the slider has been set to apply the settings on boot please notify me. Hope it does not fail you! Big thanks to @weeka89 and everybody here on this thread and the slack group for testing, couldn't have been that great or refined without your help and time, very much appreciated

Yes, but you need custom kernel and app for changing tunables.

No custom kernel needed.
Just needs Interactive governor wich all of them brings.

True. But there are also schedulers (zen) tuned in your profiles that are not found in stock kernel?

Yes, but if there`s no other tweaks in the kernel like the stock one it will only change governor settings and all other settings will remain untuched.
