That is the Kernel that I have been using this entire time, with 1.1.2
It has been working fantastic.

Does it support NoRefreshToggle?

I have NorefreshToggle installed, and it runs and gets superuser permissions and all that, I don't know if I know how to use it well enough to verifiy that it is working 100%. I have only messed around with the setting a little bit.

Simple bash script for 'Gscript' for toggling FastMode in FW 1.2 .
If I have time I'll write an apk to do that instead of 'Gscript'.
Quote:

if [ "$(cat /sys/devices/platform/omap3epfb.0/graphics/fb0/fmode)" == 0 ]; then
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/omap3epfb.0/graphics/fb0/fmode;
else
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/omap3epfb.0/graphics/fb0/fmode;
fi

to be placed in /sdcard/gscript/


EDIT :
I don't want to start a new thread so ...
- script to enable/disable 'partial refresh mode' [works fine when you flip pages using hardware buttons] [FW 1.2]
Can be quite useful because you don't lose contrast nor colors [bits per pixel].

You can add shortcuts to both scripts on your home screen in ADW / Legacy Launcher.


Gscript :

https://code.google.com/p/gscript-an...downloads/list

EDIT 2:

for the list to be full
- NoRefresh_toggler.sh to turn on NoRefresh via Gscript
- updated previous scripts so that Gscript launches them and kills itself

EDIT 3 :
- 2 scripts to turn WIFI on and off.
I replaced my default "clock" button action [Nook Touch Mod Manager] with a shortcut to 'Gscipt' so that solution is kind of useful for me.
EDIT 4 :
- Just got my NSTGL from US
glow.sh - script to turn on Glowlight Control
EDIT 5 :
- to keep everything in one post
semi-persistent No Refresh

This newest version of 176 works great for me too - I'm using Nook Simple Touch w/Glowlight 1.1.5

The older version of 174 did disable the glowlight, so I rolled back to 166, but that caused occasional crashing when the glowlight was on and I tried to plug the device in. Also crashed when I hit the rear button to sleep the device with the glowlight on. Also, some times the device just wouldn't wake up and I had to power down.

So far, this kernel runs a bit more zippy and slight less washed-out with fastmode on. Still a bit washed-out, though, to where it is more comfortable to embolden the font in coolreader.

Question:
I'd be interested to know how to lower the clock speed a bit to get slightly more contrast as I currently have to change the profile for button savior or it pretty much is rendered invisible at the default theme.

Edit: Adjusted transparency on the trigger button fixes the issue. Using Contrast(for E-INK) theme.

Also, the app tray button is barely visible but I know where it is so I just mash until I hit it.

With the clock speed slightly down, I might be able to hit the sweet spot between performance and visibility. Any advice?

Edit:
Tried AnTuTu CPU Master Free but it doesn't seem to make any changes.

If only need the kernel, you can get it from the boot folder on the zip.

File Type: zip install-kernel-usbhost-176.zip - [Click for QR Code] (2.15 MB, 51 views)

How do I go about installing either one of these zip files? I searched all over, and I am just unable to find the right commands to do so. Quite the novice with doing this, but am eager to learn.

With the help of guevor's instructions in the beginning of this thread, I think I got it with just the uImage file from one of the earlier builds.

I'm wanting to install the fastmode, and maybe usb host, hack, and just don't know how to.

I'm also wondering if it would be the same commands to install these zip files from osowiecki?

I was wondering what would be the best way to sideload apps to my NST, and remembered that I could go to the Google Play Store, and download then install directly from there. Didn't see this in any of the threads and just thought I should share this information.

to install these zip's you have to :

-prepare a mSDcard with CWR on it
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1360994
-place zips on mSD
-run CWR and select "install zip from sdcard"

My zips contain 2 sh scripts. Put them in /sdcard/gscript.
This is a somewhat dirty workaround for the problem of FastMode.apk not working under FW 1.2.
Install 'Gscript.apk' and than run toggle.sh with it to swich FastMode on and off.

shades of gray
When this fast mode is active, I cannot see shades of gray, I see only colors composited from black and white dots.
Is that what I have to see ?

Thank you

Thank you

If you have 'NoRefresh' installed check whether it is active (NoRefresh settings) when you try to launch 'FastMode' .
They cannot be both active at the same time.
