@gokhanmoral

Glad to see you back.
I have moved back to the 'real' Siyah kernel, I had no idea about the 'kernel wars' that went on.

So far, I've noticed when recording video, the sound is crackly.
Besides that, so far so good.
BTW, I'm using 4.2.1 based ROM, soon to be upgraded to 4.2.2.

I know you won't be working on this for a while, but just for future reference.

I'll test some more and let you know how things go.

Welcome home. :thumbup:

DoCoMo SC-02C {i9100} Lot 2/
P.A.C. ROM v19.9.1 {2/14}/
Siyah s2 v6.0b5+ {2/19}/
SimmoF A.R.P. Tweaker {2/04}

I've always used siyah since 4.1.5 now I use 5.0.1 and b4 I say what I wanna say I wanna say I'm not a hater of the siyah kernel but from the start I've had nothing but problems since I've used this kernel maybe its a problem caused by me or maybe its how I flash ROMs or the kernel anyway I've had kernel panic when I first flashed siyah v4.1.5 as a noobie on my stock 4.0.3 LPQ and am not pointing my finger at siyah but no matter what customROM I install none will charge my phone while I'm using it say if I'm listing to music or when I'm on YouTube the battery discharges real fast I lose like 30% standby through the night my phone is always hot and I know its not the kernels fault but I'm sick to death of having to turn off data every 40mins it jus hangs its lit up as if its being used buts its not I came from Nokia 5800 I now have sgs2 and I use to read on xda all the time b4 I rooted and I always read about bad battery life and I thought I was a lucky I easily got 15 hours of normal use now I'm lucky to get 4hours can someone help me get better battery life please I'm currently charging/discharging my freshly flashed pa2.54 (²hours ago) siyah v5.0.1 and I need a fix my gallery ain't showing my external pics

WISH I NEVER ROOTED BUT GLAD I DID
PS CANT WAIT FOR SIYAH 6.0 STABLE. WITH NEATROM MS1 LITE I WANT I WANT HA.

The latest source of siyahkernel3 on github when compiled produces a magic version of 3.0.32-Siyah-s2-v6.0b3+ and not beta5. Is that just a typo, or is that really the beta 3 kernel?

The sound on the video recording works fine. Sorry, user error. I tried a dirty flash and, ..... Ooooops! :(

Factory reset, wiped cache and dalvik, fromat the data, system and the cache, flashed ROM, gapps, kernel, patch, wipe cache and dalvik again, fix permissions, reboot and voila! The sound on video capture is fine. What I should've done in the first place, but just wanted to try anyway for testing purposes. ;) Hehe, now I know. :rolleyes:

More feedback after more tests.

Peace-Out! :cool:

you should extract the config by uncompressing /proc/config.gz from a running kernel. I do not push config dumps frequently but CONFIG_IKCONFIG is enabled. you can also extract it with extract-ikconfig utility in scripts folder.

Morning All
Hi Gokhanmoral - Please find last_kmsg attached. Hang /sod this am. Power key press rebooted ok.

Hi Kantjer - this is my first one!!! :eek:

NeatROM 4.3 Lite
Siyah 6.0b5+

none of the last_kmsg files had a kernel panic so far.
and yours has almost nothing in it.
I recommend you to reset stweaks settings (using stweaks app) and restart.
you can also try to increase the voltages for GPU as well, just a little and only for lowest 2 steps, and use the phone without touching anything else.
I believe people do not have any SOD but the screen doesn't turn on. in some previous logs I saw that the user pressed power button several times and then longpressed it to force reboot.
if you know how to use adb please try to use it when you think you have a SOD.

I've encountered screen sluggishness as well. I do undervolt my GPU and I think it had something to do with it.

Let me test it without undervolting and see if it solves the problem.

There's one more issue though. Each time I plug my phone to my laptop, I'll get the warning (on my S2) that my PC doesn't have the ability to detect my phone. Weird though that it detects my phone fine (MTP and Kies).

I don't think that it is related with Siyah.
I got the same with the stock (Phil's).
The warning displays on the S2 not necessarily when usb is connected but appears to be occasional - after each boot or something like that.

Thks Gok - maybe sod was wrong term - was in messaging app and phone hung. MA eventually closed but screen/phone totally non-responsive.
Power key hold rebooted ok.
I've reset in Stweaks - dont fiddle there anyway - always default.. Will do GPU as you suggest.
Can do ADB - will see what I can get next time.

Mod Edit
< snip....some idiotic rant.....>

you have no idea what you are talking about.

and I am writing this post not to educate you but to prevent people believe in the bulls hit you are talking about.

every kernel, including the stock, has bugs. and stock kernel had some serious bugs in the past (and nobody wants to test if it still has that) such as superbrick bug. I respect that philz is releasing a repacked & patched stock kernel and I'd recommend it to those who do not need any additional functionality or fun. but if you say that "it is perfect for everyone" then I'll nominate you the biggest moron of the month.

there are some features & setting that don't work on every phone (such as overclocking, undervolting and vpll_mode).
and there may be other bugs. but the purpose of this kernel is not to give people trouble and this is what you should learn as well.

just stop spamming the thread and go try to educate people by creating a new one. you are not welcomed here.

    siyahkernel-ics-wide1.png

    Features:
    • based on JB sources
    • DISABLED CAP_ERASE (No superbrick bug)
    • All-in-1kernel because it supports CM9, CM10, Samsung, MIUI and Boot-to-Gecko (B2G) ROMs with a single kernel image. (no Sense4all support)
    • Dual booting support for all supported ROM types. See droidphile's post for Dual Booting FAQ
    • Custom CWM touch recovery with swipe gestures and double-tap selection
    • 6-steps CPU freq
    • 5-step GPU frequency levels. VPLL Mode to have additional frequency steps. defaults frequencies: 66-108-166-267-330.
    • Auto-root. You can also remove root via STweaks app and install it without rebooting your phone again. Auto-root can be disabled as well.
    • CPU Overclock/Undervolt support (we have two interfaces for that. both of them are defacto standard)
    • Tweakable vitalij's value (set to 5 as default)
    • Adjustable touchpad led brightness
    • Fixed fuelalert wakelocks
    • You can completely disable android logger using STweaks app
    • Faster charging for misc and USB modes. There are 3 modes (AC, Misc, USB) and normally last two of them support only slow charging. You can have charging speed of AC by increasing it (especially user while charging in car or using USB port)
    • Cpu governor optimizations
    • Gpu voltage, clock and stepcount interfaces (GPU Overclock/Undervolt)
    • Screen brightness curve settings with original panel gamma values. panel values unchanged, so you will get stock colors and will be able to use supercurio's voodoo display app when it is released. brightness modification will only change auto-brightness response.
    • BLN support both for Samsung and CM ROMs (you can use STweaks, Nstools or BLNControl app from the market to enable it)
    • Breathing or Blinking effect for BLN. (Make sure you don't enable blinking in any other BLN app) Use STweaks to select one of them.
    • Better touch sensitivity
    • Available CPU Governors: Pegasusq (default), Ondemand, Lulzactive, SmartassV2, Interactive and Conservative, Performance, Userspace, Powersave
    • CIFS as module
    • Available I/O schedulers: CFQ (default), noop, Deadline, SIO, V(R)
    • J4FS as module
    • ARM topology support (SCHED_MC)
    • Automatic EFS Backup
    • Lots of I/O tweaks and filesystem optimizations via some parts of thunderbolt scripts.
    • USB Mass Storage mode is working in CWM Touch Recovery and you can mount both internal and external sdcard as a disk drive
    • NTFS automounting for USB sticks. When you plug in an NTFS formatted USB flash it will be automatically mounted to /mnt/ntfs folder.
    • USB mouse and keyboard support
    • built-in profile support with default, battery and performance presets (you can change them in CWM Recovery). Even using everything default will save you a lot of battery juice.
    • Eargasm for headphone amplification (in STweaks) as free Voodoo Louder replacement
    • Almost everything is configurable such as scheduler features, hotplug thresholds, GPU frequencies, voltages, arm topology modes... and they are configurable via simple and free STweaks app which is embedded in the kernel and soon in Google Play & Opensource
    • Adjustable mDNIe settings
    • optional sharpness tweaks from hardcore
    • mDNIe negative effect toggle with home button (press it four times)
    • Touch gesture support by Tungstwenty. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1831254)
    • BLNWW (BLN Without Wakelock)
    • Slide2Wake (originally by Fluxi)

    More to come...

    troubleshooting

    siyahkernel-ics-wide1.png

    READ THESE FIRST

    • Never report any bugs to CM9/CM10 threads if you use it together with SiyahKernel
    • Do not ask questions to me directly. This is a common thread, not my personal inbox. Ask your questions in the thread and do not target them to anyone.
    • Do not expect answers to all your questions. There are some questions which nobody knows the answer of.
    • Do not forget that this is a development thread. There is another thread in general section for those who wants to discuss battery life and chats. If your post does not include a feature request, bug report or suggestion it should be posted to the other thread.
    • No ETA for new version. Even if I sometimes talk about release dates those may change and they change for some good reason or because of my real-life obligations.
    • Make use of "Search this Thread -> Advanced Search"
    • Never ever discuss anything deep-sleep related in this thread. I do not make modifications to prevent sleep and 99% of deep sleep problems are application/ROM related. discuss it in general section. I do not want any positive ("this kernel sleeps like a baby") or negative ("There is a big problem with deep sleep. Please fix it") messages in my development thread.
    • If you do not provide details about your configuration and settings nobody can help you or nobody will care about your problem/bug report. The problems without details (ROM, settings, preferably the version that the problem first happened or the one that you don't experience the problem) will be ignored.
    • Never ever report any SOD issues if you are undervolting/overclocking and make sure you attach last_kmsg log. If you don't know what it is report the problem to the other thread because one more post without any useful information on dev thread will help noone including yourself.


    FAQ:

    Q: I am having some random lockups with some apps
    A: try removing root by using STweaks app and restart.

    Q: What is the difference between STweaks and ExTweaks?
    A: Both have similar functionality. ExTweak is Xan's implementation of the UCI interface (which is designed by Xan and me with the helps of AndreiLux and implemented in the kernel as open scripts by me) and STweaks is mine. I was hoping Xan would release the sources of ExTweaks (without profile support) but he changed his mind and I decided to open STweaks. Soon they will have almost identical functionality, so you can use whichever you like.

    Q: Does this kernel work on XXXXXX-ROM?
    A: If the ROM is based on Samsung Stock ICS Rom LPQ or newer, it should. Otherwise, search the thread... If you cannot find any reference to that ROM, try the kernel. You won't lose anything by trying this kernel. Worst case scenario is to reflash your previous kernel or ROM. You can backup your previous kernel with Hellcat's k-tool from the market.

    Q: Where is CM9, MIUI or Samsung ROM versions?
    A: There is only one version. Both ROMs are supported with a single kernel image.

    Q: What is the best settings?
    A: It is the one you try yourself and like.

    Q: I have just lost 20-30% battery by just rebooting/flashing the kernel. Is it a bug?
    A: No. It happens because of our fuel gauge chip which doesn't require calibration goes crazy sometimes. It is not related with kernel or ROM. Just reset fuel gauge chip using STweaks app (or remove the battery and wait 3 minutes) and then charge your phone.

    Q: BLN doesn't work.
    A: you need to enable it in stweaks or BLN app. if you have more than one app to configure bln make sure all of them use the same settings.

    Q: BLN works in test mode but it doesn't work otherwise.
    A: if test mode works you should blame the apps. Stock messaging and email apps may not support BLN and in some other applications you may need to enable notifications. Either find another application or change your ROM.

    Q: Can I use breathing effect without using BLN?
    A: for now, breathing effect only works in BLN. There is no way of using it otherwise.

    Q: I need to disable and re-enable BLN in stweaks to get it working again. What is the problem?
    A: You may have another BLN related application (BLNapp, nstools, or a script) which disables BLN after stweaks apply the setting at early boot stage. you have to either uninstall that app or enable BLN in that app as well.

    closing the thread once again...

    I don't want to piss the mods again because this thread attracts too many people.
    most of them misinterpret the "this is a development thread" statement and use the thread for their self-development purposes.

    There are very few people who give useful feedback and suggestions and I talk to them over gtalk, email or PMs anyway.

    greetings :)
