Hi, it's certainly an impressive and thorough undertaking you have applied yourself too and achieved nice one!
I also very much appreciate-and agree-you don't want to promote one kernel against the other or demean one against the other but I'm still left wondering what the point of this thread is except to simply share and make us aware what indeed an impressive and thorough undertaking you have achieved!?
It's the Title, Abstract, Introduction and (loose) method of a scientific report without the Results, Findings, Discussion and Conclusion and so after 1700 or something words it was all a bit of an anti climax to a subject allot of people still don't fully understand, myself included. Well written though
Like I say, I'm no expert and if I'm wrong I'm sorry but its always seemed to me these Kernels tested and compared do not try to offer a better product to each other or even attempt to be in the same category (other than (obviously) being a Kernel for our beloved Note II) and have been written with different aims right?
I don't want to specifically say which kernel to avoid seeming prejudice or to be promoting certain products so the names have been changed- to protect the innocent-but (as stated by the talented Dev) the 'Peacock' kernel was simply written to keep stock feel but primarily to change the annoying S.E.Linux Enforcing mode-which affected a fair few apps but most importantly (for me at least) reading NTFS drives with OTG-to permissive.
Simple and very user friendly for those that would be lost with anything more complicated and time consuming.
Which is what the next kernel would be... Sitting at the opposite end of the spectrum the 'Shiva' kernel sets out to maximise our devices capabilities to it's full potential with enough tweaks, knobs and settings so it can suit our individual preferences and expectations and be dammed to Samsung stock. Perfect for us tweakers out there or users that demand more from the devices usual default boundaries.
Something Shiva very much succeeds at although a project of that scale will always need updating or refining. Still, it's an amazing and respect worthy undertaking.
And then there is the what shall be called.. The C. S. Lewis kernel which like it's name sakes endeavours were, an ongoing written project that is being created for its own fulfillment and well as ours... A self proclaimed hobby as much as anything else and still in relative infancy... BUT it comes with a breath of fresh air and direction because some of the options, tweaks and functions being written or included in it are worth taking a note to (exuse the pun, couldn't resist) and are impressive. Again a different target from the previous two projects.
So bearing that in mind, couldn't you have shared your hard earned results for the good of the forum? Not set out in a comparison or 1st, 2nd,3rd place but simple results.... Especially from within the kernels themselves, the different results you achieved with different settings in place... It would be an interesting and helpful read and also cement any doubt people have of.... Of anything lol
Must be worth considering?
I must apologise for only composing around half of the original posts length but do hope you found it as equally fluffy and ultimately fruitless as I did.
