Hey you all, I am trying to use a Sitecom (based on Asix 88772 chip) network adapter, on a rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 with official 4.1.2 ROM. Used it with the latest, siyah kernel which should be compatible with my Samsung Galaxy S2. I even copied this with the adb push command, which seemed to work but the adapter won't work. I also tried insmod over adb or terminal with su but with both mii.ko and asix.ko. Both ko files should be the right ones, but I am not for sure. With the insmod command it says that the module was not in the right format! When I check in os monitor I don't see an additional network adapter. Also tried to reboot with the adapter connected during reboot.Even the led's on the usb ethernet adapter will blink. I can read or write usb flash sticks with the otg adapter. When I use the adapter on the Samsung Galaxy S4 (without root) it will show up in os monitor with it's mac address as eth0 but it remains down. But the leds go on. And I probably need root to bring it up. But the adapter itself seems to work. It fully works on an Archos G9 tablet, without modification on this tablet, but you have to enable the 3g stick option. You also get en ethernet adapter icon besides the clock.

Can anybody help me with this? Does this only work on an older android version (4.0.x)? And or with and older Siyah kernel?

Would be great if anyone could give me a hint!

This development thread is not proper to post this kind of questions so I answered you here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=49720311&postcount=6302

Please use Siyah kernel discussions thread for the future if you have any questions/problems

thanks for your great work.
i'm going to have a galaxy s2, so i'm looking for a good kernel.
i wonder can i install your kernel on korean galaxy s2 with jellybean 4.1.2 (SHW-M250K/S) ?

I think i can give a word, since i developed it! :cyclops:


LulzactiveQ

I was decided to optimize Lulzactive governor by including the dec_cpu_load parameter.

----
I was going to put it because if the inc_cpu_load is setted at a high value (example: 90%) and the pump_down_steps is also setted high (2 or 3 steps down if load < inc_cpu_load) it would happen a problem:

Suppose the current load is between 80 and 89% all the sampling rate and the pum_down_steps is 2 or 3. Do you think is a good idea to go down 2/3 steps in the load at that high?

This is not a theorical issue, i really felt lag when playing some simple games and my conclusion was that situation was happening in that moment.

Thats why i created dec_cpu_load, in this way we can tell the governor exactly when go down pump_down_steps.
----

I also fixed a little bug as well that the up_sample_time and down_sample_time wasnt been respected (the governor was scaling up and down as soon as the load criteria was matched).
-----

And i added as gokhan requested, the hotplug parameters from pegasusq. So now we have two governors with hotplug queue logic.

To the hotplug part i had to create another sample rate. The name is hotplug_sample_rate. I created that to make the hotplug part completely independent from scale up / down frequencies part. In fact, they are running in different threads.
-----

That's it. I also putted some logs that can be enabled / disabled by the dvfs_debug parameter.
If do you think something was wrong, or a problem apperead please enable this parameter for a while and execute this command in terminal emulator or adb:

dmesg > /sdcard/lulzactiveq.log.txt
----------------------

This is only a battery profile suggestion for the 16 steps. Please explore it!!!!!!

I want to thank a lot Gokhan for the help he gave me to do this job!!!
This a wonderful governor, I am using it with latest stable Boeffla Kernel on i9300. In Boeffla you can tune the settings in the governor, but the list of possible adjustments is pretty exhaustive and I was wondering if there is any information available so that I can properly understand the functionality of the items therein?

Many thanks!

Hi metalgear,

I am really happy that you are enjoying the governor that i, with Gokhan's assistance, created.

Unfortunately i stopped any development, but i enjoyed so much making it as well.

About your doubt: There's at least two links describing governors in details including Luzactive and its Q variation.

One is the jurassic and spectacular thread by droidphile: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...nel-governors-modules-o-t1369817/post19846276

Other is a thread of mine, but is in my native language (i'm Brasilian): http://brasildroid.com.br/galaxy-s-...ks-script-gs2-tweaks-bateria-performance.html

Well, google translator may be helpful.

Just to explain about the "Q": It indicates that this governor has a independent hotplug logic, as pegasusQ has. But i also don't know what Q means!! = )

@Many40, how things are going? Long time i didnt see you. = )

Cya everyone!

Cheers.

[EDIT]: Sorry to mess up the dev thread. = )

Thanks so much for that! This governor is marvelous and runs a real treat with my setup. Forget intelliactive and zzmoove, lulzactiveq is simply superb, wiping the floor with then both with a great mix of lagless performance and kind on the battery also :good:

Thanks for remembering me still my old friend :)
I'm fine - still on s2, still on Siyah kernel (6b4) and I still hope that one day @gokhanmoral pops up here for short time and fix his recovery to make dual boot working. It's the only feature I'm missing from the kernel.
I know I'm naive but we say in Poland: "faith can move mountains"

I see you are on s4 -> are you supporting any kernels for s4 with your governor?

End of OT (moderators forgive me - but it's @robertobsc who is guilty for that mentioning my nickname ;))

Unfortunately in Galaxy s4 I'm a ordinary user [emoji24]

I couldn't even flash a custom kernel, do you believe that?

It's such a disaster...

Does this work well on XWMS3? I installed and the kernel worked, but sometimes i get an unreasonable freeze, which makes the touch screen useless (power, volume and soft keys still respond). I try philz kernel which match the latest build and there was no freeze

I would say it's unfortunately 'normal' for Siyah and Dorimanx kernel which are apparently based on same source, where there is something deeply unstable in them.

I tried number of times to stabilize Dorimanx kernel but each time without long term results. Recently, i tried to go with Siyah just to find out it is behaving pretty much the same. That's too sad, as they offer advanced features plus OC.

Are you on default kernel settings without any UC/UV?
- if yes, increase voltage by 50mV for the lowest GPU freq step
- if not, reset to default settings and see.

Ah yes, all the freeze come after i change something in stweak, specially gpu oc
Will try it for a couple if minutes and see
Edit: well i guest that it's beter then, less freeze than before. But i got a big battery issue, that after heavy usage (playing games or sth) and reboot, my battery drop from 60-80% to 20% or less. But when the power goes down to 1%, the phone turn off, and i turn it right back on with 12%. How could that happen? 2 batteries, 1 problem. I guess that it's the phone that causing the issue then, but what is it?

    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 :)
