Hi, I'm on 4.4.2 and I noticed a different haptic feedback (like shorter, and so it seems also weaker) with respect to stock kernel. This "problem" come out also with every other kernel that manages vibration intensity via STweaks, while there isn't neither in semi-stock kernel (Adam and Talexop, no vibration intensity management) nor in KT's (management via different app)..
Of course I set the intensity at max, but it feels really different from what I am habituate to
Has anyone noticed this?

Never noticed this, it's a long time ago since i last time used Stock, and Haptic feedback is the first thig i turn off.
Sorry that i can't help you.

Hello all and @friedrich420

It seems that stweaks does not present an accurate listing of all available cpu governors.

Trickster shows them just fine.

Latest tw 4.4.4 mainline.

Yank is what I was looking for and was unable to find.

Ael kernel debug lists it as an available governor..

Edit:
Looks like the last four listed are what is not available..

You are right my friend its my mistake for forgetting to add them to stweaks. The governors are there.. they just dont show on stweaks but i recommend trickster anyway my man.. i keep forgetting to remove stweaks completely.. theres no need for it. The free version of trickster mod works perfectly with it :thumbup:

Stweaks settings not in Trickster (free or paid)

[CPU]
Cpu Clock Control - MSM / Intelliplug / Hotplug
Intelliplug Additional
Intelli Hotplug Hysteresis

[GPU]
GPU Voltage Control

[MSM Thermal]
CPU Temp Control

[LED and GAMMA]
All those settings are totally different in Trickster.

[SOUND]
All those settings are totally different..

[IO]
Nothing for Internal/External just one

[MISC]
Dynamic FSYNC
Gentle Fair Sleepers
Disable Android Logger (this is a big deal imho)

[MEMORY]
LMK when screen off

[OTHER]
None of these exist in Trickster

[BUG REPORT]
Nothing like this in Trickster

I agree that Stweaks is old, but it does have it's place for kernel tweaking.

Just needs some attention :)

Thank you greatly for your response.

Stweaks isn't always very reliable applying some changes.
TricksterMod is the way to go for average users.
Faux or Franco kernel app is what's up :thumbup:

Purchased the faux app last night.

Great app.

Not good with error checking..

Looks like AEL does not have zram, if it does, faux after reboot can not make it work..

Hello sir; sorry to bother..

Having a heck of time trying to figure out what the deal is with zram..

ael.sh looks like it calls:

# zram 700M
if [ "$sammyzram" == "on" ];then
UNIT="M"
/system/bin/rtccd3 -a "$zramdisksize$UNIT"
fi;

[email protected]:/sbin # ls -al /system/bin/rtccd3
/system/bin/rtccd3: No such file or directory
1
[email protected]:/sbin # ls -al /system/bin/rtccd2
-rwxr-xr-x root shell 75328 2008-08-01 08:00 rtccd2

So if I set sammyzram=on and zramdisksize=500 inside my default.profile,

would that set a zram with a 500M size?

trickster will only do 10% and faux123 turns zram off and can do nothing with it :)

I'm trying to get zram on, so I can look at that little pie chart graph of the reads vs writes that zram has done..

If there is an easier way to see that or a different app; I'm all good..

Literally trying to evaluate the usefulness of zram..

Thanks in advance.

By default it looks like this:

[email protected]:/ $ free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 1858896 1209964 648932 0 15540
-/+ buffers: 1194424 664472
Swap: 511996 26452 485544

Which looks like a 500M zram drive..

Opening faux and touching 'Set on Boot' in the Memory Manager area breaks everything ;)

Unless there is a different/working way to set that 'Clear vfs cache after boot' and 'Auto fs writeback delay mode'..

Unless those are worthless ;)

Trying to set them seems to be great, until a reboot; then they are all not working..

Again, thank you.

Edit:

Using stweaks and trickster seems to be a win.. basically don't tell faux to do anything.. in zram..

Seems to work

Faux app works ok here, but I'm on AOSP (CM usually) based ROMs, so it may be an issue with TW/Samsung kernels (although he supports these, so not sure what is your issue.)
Regarding 'Clear VFS...' and 'Auto FS...'
these are values / files from (IIRC) /proc/sys/vm folder (Linux stuff.), more precisely you deal with drop_caches and laptop_mode. You can set these manually, (Google for options), or you can also use apps like android/system tuner, Rom Toolbox etc. These offer much more options in this regard (just like editing files with file browser/editor or terminal, faux only put stuff he considers to be of more practical value and what fits best for most of the users.

Hi guys..
I just saw this Kernel.. its awesome..
Any plans updating this to Linux 3.4.106
And Fauxsound driver to V36??

Thank you.

so im probaby not gonna make any changes to it until we get lollipop sources..
too much work for prob 2-3 weeks of waiting..

If you use the latest version (4.2) you can use it on lollipop. Just flash in recovery.
