Hey folks,


P-Funk asked me to take a look at the kernel source for the Zio and see what I could make of it.

I won't lie to you, its not pretty. However, determination usually prevails, and so I present you with a kernel, currently beta, with minimal support (I don't have a Zio).



Use at your own risk! I, nor anyone else is responsible for damage done from, or to your device. Your device may become unstable. Your cat may marry your dog, and your gerbil may elope with your daughter or son. This is not my fault.

Features
2.6.32.9 source built
overclocked to 748mhz
lowmemkiller driver patches and tweaks
Boots at stock 600mhz speed. You must use setcpu to overclock.
sdcard read speed tweak
init.d support
smartass and interactive governors.
bfq i/o scheduler added and set as default.
kernel is pre-rooted, and will start usb debugging by default.
swap support


Download URL:

How to install:
Download file, place on sdcard, boot clockwrok recovery and flash.

Please note: I am trying to upload source to a mercurial repo, but it is having issues. I have a trouble ticket in with bitbucket. The source is too big to upload to github for free. If I do not hear back from them, I will tarball the source and upload it that way.

Thanks:

Every single soul in IRC #openzio who broke their phones testing stuff for me :D

For those that cannot boot this, SPz0 has a more stable version that he will be releasing with his rom.

729mhz seems to be the most stable clockspeed for this device.

for those that are wondering, the smartass governor eliminates the need for a "screen off" profile by automatically capping the CPU speed when the screen is off/phone goes to sleep.
More info.
Smartass will also cap the max frequency when sleeping to 352Mhz (or if your min frequency is higher than 352 – why?! – it will cap it to your min frequency). Lets take for example the 528/176 kernel, it will sleep at 352/176. No need for sleep profiles any more!
In other words, SetCPU would only be needed to OC (or use the Overclock widget, whatever floats your cookies).

Trying out swap, seems to be neutral on this device.
748 Freezes and causes random reboots for me.
Great job man, and much thanks from all of us Zio owners for your time and effort, thanks Adrynalyne!

Any reason anyone can think of why or what in the kernel would cause 2d graphics to choke out so bad? I was scoring 110-120 prior to OCing, and now 2d is scoring 70 if I'm lucky. Any thoughts or ideas?

I thought this device could run at 800mhz??? I thought wrong. Cheap cpu they are using.

Why on earth are you such an ungrateful douchebag?
Why not contribute something constructive instead of showing people how douchey you can be...


OnTopic:
749Mhz ran flawless for me. It seems to be random on who 749mhz freezes with.
@sinisin: did you flash 749oc with the openzio rom?

My ROM has Adrynalyne's stable 729Mhz overclock for those interested. :)

Hey Adrynalyne:
Think I could grab an 800Mhz OC from you at some point? I really wanna push the boundaries of this cpu.
Just a straight step from 748 to 800Mhz would be sufficient.

I want to see if I can get it to run stable @ 800Mhz. :)

Sprint users don't get no love at all...lol

All the cool kids have cricket ;)

Cricket users are lucky to have any development, my roommates told me there wouldn't be any Dev's interested in the ZIO. I think the main issue you're encountering is any Dev who has the droid options available on sprint, is not going to choose the ZIO for their personal phone or development. You're best bet is to start reading like crazy and head the development of the sprint side of things yourself or upgrade to a phone that has active development.
