Changelogs :

V14

24/03/2012 - BETA 6 :

- Upstream sync (modemctl, compass fix..)
- Fixed BLN, and added blink support
- Disabled Samsung sleep patches from Teamhacksung to prevent SODs
- Fascinate : Ported ssewk2x phantom keypress filter code from Glitch V13.1
- Vibrant : Merged GPS changes from FaultException
- Moved back to Deadline ioshed as default to fix nandroid
- Added Derteufel's selective LiveOC mod - It will prevent low frequency steps to OC, potentially providing enhanced stability and powersaving
- Fixed potential bug in vfat fs driver
- Fixed bug in ext4 fs driver
- Merged some audio changes from Teamhacksung
- Added touch support in Glitch recovery (incomplete)
- Some cleaning
22/02/2012 - BETA 5 :

- Voice audio through dock, thanks to xcaliburinhand (should fix related issues with Glitch volume boost hack)
- Renamed SmartassV2 governor to "GlitchassV2" to prevent latest NSTools version hanging
- Added FranciscoFranco Conservative governor tweaks for more speed
- Added a DIDLE enabler into screensate scaling script to kill BT in sleep and make DIDLE work with both TOP=ON and TOP=OFF. You'll need to enable screenstate scaling in Glitch menu from recovery in order to get DIDLE to use this (disabled by default). It's mostly for testing purposes - Feel free to report your experience with it.
- Moved back to previous sysinit to prevent the DIDLE enabler script to make the phone hanging on the bootlogo. Also fixes screenstate scaling making the phone unbootable, and some SOD/COD issues for guys using some other tweaking scripts
- Implemented BLN9 port from Derteufel with NSTools compatible sysfs. This way all the unsupported roms will get led notifications, and CMLed haters will hopefully stop to yell..
- The flash-time script has been updated to be able to clean more stuff
- A few fixes on the wifi driver to work better with our devices Please report your experience with DIDLE enabled. It may be required to disable DIDLE on some phones to prevent SOD/COD/softreboots or other instabilities. Also MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A DAMN GB BOOTLOADER !
- Reverted modemctl changes from Teamhacksung - should fix data issues some are having

21/02/2012 - BETA 4.1 :

- Reverted sleep GPIO stuff from THS stock samsung port. Should fix SODs some are encountering.

21/02/2012 - BETA 4 :

- Fixes on LiveOC and custom voltage from Ezekeel
- Fixes + various enhancements on I/O scheduling (up to 50% I/O speed improvement compared to beta 3)
- Fixed touchscreen freezing randomly
- Fixed various bugs here and there
- Back from Eugene's DIDLE to Ezekeel's DIDLE v2 mod (available through NSTools again) -> You may encounter SoD if enabled with wifi ON.
- Load balancing improvements
- Updated FIOPS I/O sched
- Sync with THS latest source

09/02/2012 - BETA 3 :

- LiveOC frequency steps changed again - Now all steps are using a 200MHz bus by default, so pushing liveOC % will give the same bus speed on all steps
- Default Int voltage for 1GHz set to Samsung's default to fix instability on bad overclocker devices
- Fixed recovery not displaying long lists items as well as cosmetic fixes - updated to latest source from Koush
- Fixed init.d support
- Switched to Tiny SHMEM, better on small devices
- Ext4 optimizations for more speed
- Readahead values tweaked a bit - should be better overall
- Fascinate : Use GB driver for i500 to fix prox/light sensors, and updated RIL init (Thanks to Sbrissen)
- Fsync() enabled again to prevent/limit data loss while experimenting with overclocking, and to (probably) fix the reboot->bootloop issue
- Disabled frame pointer, FIQ debugger, and some more debug stuff, Morfic-like :D
- Some writeback quickfixes
- Updated wifi drivers with added net fixes and optimizations
- GlitchOndemand polling tweaking for more stability
- Misc tweaks

29/01/2012 - BETA 2 :

- Updated to linux 3.1.10
- A few fixes on LiveOC (Thanks Ezekeel)
- GPU load affecting CPU frequency scaling (200 vs 100MHz) is back

- Added dynamic writeback & various writeback fixes
- Proportional rate reduction for TCP (thanks Google :D)
- Small fix on Lazy gov from Ezekeel
- Captivate : Port battery charging/fuel gauge code from stock --> Improves (but does not completely fix) phone turning off while
charging for some users (charging death). (Thanks to Pawitp)
- Vibrant : Headset buttons fix (Thanks to FaultException)
- Fixed and now built-in CIFS
- Changed OC steps (1152 step is now 1160, with 200MHz bus, 1440MHz step removed, added 1400 and 1500 MHz steps)
- Moved back to "old" DIDLE implementation for now
- Glitch call volume hack is back
- Various optimization and CPU load reduction in some typical cases
- Verizon Fascinate : fix for boot issue on preview 5 and BETA 1
- Updated USB host driver to build 5

23/01/2012 - BETA 1 :

- Dock audio support.
- Added gamma V1 hack and MDNIE bypass mode.
- Added more governors to play with & tweaked interactive and ondemand.
- DIDLE V2 added back for people who want to mod their framework (It may/will cause sleep of death on some devices, as always)

- Added back various governors.
- New colors from Samsung stock.
- Toolchain sorcery with linaro 4.4.5, and using NEON and hardfloat optimizations.
- Bootmode injection support.
- Various speed enhancements.

PREVIEW #4 :

- Fixed softkeys on Captivate and Fascinate.
- Refresh rate back to 60Hz as the uncap breaks colors (it'll help to get better smoothness on heavy games too).
- Better 720p video recording.
- Tweaked governors and schedulers for testing.
- Big cleanup.
- Removed DIDLE for now - useless anyway, the rom prevents it to work correctly.

PREVIEW #3 :

- Added color adjustments to Nexus S framebuffer.
- Dock audio stuff back in.
- Cleanup.

PREVIEW #2 :

- Fixed headset buttons
- Fixed randomly freezing softkeys
- Big cleanup and rewrite of some stuff
- Removed the 200MHz lock when the GPU is active for battery life. Depending on your launcher and/or widgets, you'll get some slowdowns. Change min freq to 200 to fix it.

Major additions, ported from Ezekeel's work on the Nexus S (thanks Morfic !) :

You will need NSTools app, available for free on the market, or here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1333696

- Added "LiveOC" system, giving access to GPU/bus overclocking on the fly, per 1% step.
- Added "Custom Voltage" control, giving access to ARM and Internal voltage undervoling and overvolting. (This makes the previous leakage system obsolete, which is now removed.)
- Added "Battery life eXtender" mod, allowing the user to limit the maximum charge percentage to preserve the battery life (not the battery runtime obviously)
- Added support for DIDLE V2, a very low power mode that will help battery life in many idle/semi-idle cases.
- Lazy governor sysfs, to enable or disable the frequency ramping up when screen is off (to end tasks quicker to sleep faster).

Keep in mind CM9 is at early stages of development and contains many bugs still.

I don't really understand the LiveOC system. Does using voltage control to set the different stops still work?

I like just setting min = 200 and max = 1300 and letting everything else stay the same.

So this work with build 6 or 6.1?

Sent from my SCH-I500 using XDA App
6.1. A 6.0 version will probably be released soon due to popular control.
Yes yes, I looked over the guide. I just don't feel the need to go through all that customization. My question is, if "Voltage Control" still works the same way it always has?

Personally, I have found bus overclocking to be so much more beneficial in ICS than CPU overclocking on it's own. If you still use Voltage Control, it will work, but won't provide near the impact that NStools does. Otherwise we wouldn't have implemented LiveOC. You don't have to tweak voltages for a small LiveOC.

Glitch 14 Beta 3 is causing bootloops for me. One question, say I liveOC to 120%, does that mean my bus speed is being increased by 120% as well?

I dunno what smoothass governor does but holy **** my phone has never been snappier. Great job guys.

Sent in an Ice Cream Sandwich from my SCH-I500.

    TWRP is coming very very soon.

    Don't look now, but i put up a new skunkworks kernel.

    Changelog:

    1. added the ability to run scripts at shutdown. If you want your phone to run a script on shutdown, place it in /system/etc/shutdown.d and make sure it has the right permissions (same as init.d). I did this so I could have my phone play a nice shutdown sound like I used to have way back when. There's a script there to do that, but it should be off by default. If you want a shutdown sound, you have 3 options:
    a. place your audio file here: /system/media/audio/ui/shutdown.ogg
    b. place your audio file here: /data/media/audio/ui/shutdown.ogg
    c. place the path to your audio file inside a file called /data/misc/shutdown_sound

    Note that C overrides B overrides A. Here's the shutdown.ogg I use: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/28682151/shutdown.ogg

    2. In my progress towards a working torch, I stumbled upon a fix / hack for the camcorder light. You can now turn the flash on / off manually within the camcorder app. Now I just need to fix the ROM to do the same thing when you hit the torch button somewhere else. That's harder than it sounds. I'm working on it.

    3. Not terribly relevant, but I turned on debug information in the camera driver, and left it on. The effect of this is you have a slightly larger kernel, it might be just a tiny little smidge slower when using the camera due to the extra text IO, and your dmesg logs will have a bunch of extra info when you use the camera. Honestly, this was a little bit of an oversight on my part, and I just forgot to shut it off before I built the kernel. Shouldn't be a huge deal, tho, I'll get it in the next one.

    Androtransfer is back up to the speeds you all know and love. If you want to know more about why, read on.
    So, I've always been quite an open developer, so I'm going to explain what's been happening. Outside of Glitch, stevespear46 and I have been working on adding more open-source support (Such as Gummy, CNA, and AOKP) to the Galaxy S line. That, combined with already high downloads of this kernel (~18,000 per release last I measured) and other developers that I host for, creates quite a bit of traffic. Specifically, 5.25TB so far this month, and it's only the 12th. My hosting company (currently OVH) didn't inform me of this, but instead capped my bandwidth to 8mb/s, which was problematic considering the server runs at 125mb/s pretty much constantly. So, what's being done to fix it: recently I was donated a server by bytemark hosting for first of all a buildbot, but secondly for hosting (for more information see http://glitchteam.com) I do not have bandwidth caps with them. Therefore, every android file for anything I host will be automatically mirrored between two dedicated servers until at least when my OVH lease is up.

    What this means for users: If you are a ROM dev that needs hosting, hit me up, I can help. For regular users, downloads will only be limited by your internet connection, never by the server. Which means, I can download a ROM on my connection in 32 seconds.
