looks neato
sbc?

downloading now!

Lets hope not! Looks like a pretty promising kernel, I might have to give this a shot after a bit. We need another kernel to run with CM7 that doesn't include SBC.


EDIT: So since this is based off of the CM kernel I am going to take a shot in the dark and guess it is a BFS base then or no?

installed, running good, change log says sbc in there 2.0.2, then revert sbc in 2.1.0

I don't have time right this second to give it a flash but if you figure out anything else that would make it seem like SBC please post back. I know I sound like a little girl whining about using SBC but I would rather not run the risk even if it hasn't been proven. My guess would be if this had SBC in the newest it would be included in the title.

Top notch kernel. The only one that will reconnect 4g automatically when entering and leaving a non 4g phone

Thanks for all the quick feedback. This kernel has been out for the incredible for a while and since I have an Evo too, I decided to bring it over (finally).

To answer some of the questions:
-No, this kernel does not have the SBC mod. In my experience, it did not work right on the Inc (as in, at all), and I am not really keen on the potential downsides, so I don't bother with it. If there is sufficient demand, I would consider changing my mind.
-Yes, the kernel is based on the cm-kernel. The stock cm-kernel that ships with CM7 uses the CFS (not BFS). The Evo version (unlike the Inc version) does use BFQ (not the same as BFS).
-No, I do not have a fast charge fix/tweak. If someone could point me in the direction of that code, I would be happy to add it in.
-4G - I haven't tested, but there is 4G near my office, so I will tomorrow. There is no reason it should not work though since it is up to date with the CM7 changes.

Also, multi-touch information in the OP is primarily geared toward the Incredible. The Evo releases should always have the standard 3/5 options, regardless of recovery version. For the Incredible, it gets more complicated - some screens support 10, others 3, and different versions of CWM recovery will and will not support any beyond 2. So, for Evo users, disregard that in the changelog.

Nice to have even more kernel options. I appreciate the Evo 4g support.

I don't think anyone has a solution for the slow SD card transfers while mounted. ADB push/pull seems to be faster than mounting and transferring.

Cheers, and thanks!

Wow

Man Cay you're just out there killing it! Another repo to fork. I'm gonna have to see what goodies I can cherrypick for my Xoom kernel still in the works. Great work bro!

    sorry for the stupid question but what does sbc stands for cuz i want to download to my evo but dont know which of the 2
    Check out this guide, it really helped me when I was trying to figure out which kernel to flash on to my EVO.

    But to answer your question......

    SBC=Superior Battery Charging

    SBC is a type of "trickle" charging. It's a full, slow, complete charge and it prevents the 10% drop that most users get when pulling the phone off the charger. This kernel performs best with an overnight charge. Some users asked questions on the safety of the SBC charging method. Ms79723 states that it slowly pushes mV into the battery and thus keeps the battery cool. SBC kernels push the battery past their normal 100% charged point, to a TRUE 100% charged battery. These kernels also charge extended batteries to their maximum and show true "on charger" voltages, which would deem these to be more accurate for checking voltages on your battery. There was and still are concerns of the SBC kernels destroying your battery, but to most people now these dont pose much concern anymore.

    If I helped, don't forget to hit the THANKS button! Also, don't let these "Senior Members" get to you.....they just got to make themselves feel important by picking on new members....that's all!

    Okay, I just discovered this app, and considering it works with the kernel, I figured I'd share it.

    Sysctl Config

    Anyone who has worked with Linux kernels before knows about messing with some of these settings, however I noticed significant responsiveness (and slightly better battery) after modifying them. You can use whatever settings you like, of course, but mine are:

    Min Free Kbytes = 2624
    Dirty Ratio = 95
    Dirty Background Ratio = 60
    VFS Cache Pressure = 10

    Changing these figures from what they are currently will modify the way that the system manages and recaptures resources. A good explanation can be found here.

    These settings applied on top of 4.0.7 SBC has made this kernel the best I've ever used.
