Want to enjoy dirty on older android version? See this post. NEW
F2FS Updates !!
Just to avoid multiple questions on this subject, I'll add f2fs related updates here, tomorrow.
Please point me to stuff outside this thread, as basically this is the only thread that I read everything on.
[*]What is this "f2fs" thingy?
Read more about this awesome file systems here
[*]How to use this f2fs?
Read this and this and this (nice workaround) . If you understand it all, go ahead and have fun.
There's a small guide by @p34rp34r here.
Another awesome guide for f2fs and our device. by @burstlam
Again, if you don't understand what you're doing, DONT DO IT.
[*]How to test f2fs thing?
Read this post

[*]Compatible ROMs?new
@aosp and @bsmitty83 have been using vanir's commotio builds for f2fs test on this thread
There's a SlimKat f2fs unofficial version here
I've managed to get a paranoid f2fs version. See post here
Here's the most beloved Liquidsmooth f2fs version by @Punkiderma
F2FS converted OmniROM by @pianistaPL

Our own @poo706 has ported and improved upon an awesome tool that would convert most ROMs to f2fs compatible ROMs. Jump to it's own thread for more info.
[*]More questions?new
Why not? Jump to the F2Fs Q&A thread by @jhonnyx .
Feel free to read and search thru the thread. Ask questions that you still are unsure of.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Updated 05-05-2014
Kernel FAQ :
  1. Whythree kernels?
    More choice for different users and different user activity.

    [*]What's the difference between these three kernels?

    DirtyV versions are the ones where your 1080p recording works.
    SR versions are the "SuperRAM" versions where a lot of RAM has been reclaimed. You get more RAM, but you need to give up 1080 recording, as a trade-off. If you plan to use this one, make sure you change your camera video recording to 720p instead of 1080p. Latest kernel versions will make this change automatic.
    The 3rd one is @bsmitty83 's own build that he's running for his tests. You can use this and feel like a developer. :D
    This one might not have all the governors/freqs/io/settings that you can't live without, so be prepared to be surprised.

    [*]What are recommended kernel settings?

    Follow @Nephilim 's kernel settings. Here they are

    [*]Anyone got any nice init scripts to automate neph's settings?

    Yes. @büscher got it all covered for you here Thank him.

    [*]Can I use on x ROM?

    Sure. If it doesn't work, let people here know. There might be a workaround.

    [*]How to submit a bug?

    Post a note here with relevant information(what you were doing when x happened, screenshots, how to replicate, logs, etc)

    [*]What is this log that people talk about? How to take a useful log?

    Read this
    or use syslog app from play store.

    [*] Does Touchwake/PGM/<your favorite touchmanager> work?

    This kernel has an inbuild touchwake. You can set it using a kenel settings application (eg. TricksterMod). Sadly, not any more.
    It's also got the required modules to support <your fav tool>. You need to ask the app developer to include support for dirty kernels.
    Latest smitty version has touchwake removed, so that PGM developer can update his app to support dirty kernel.
    PGM fans, see and thank this post

    [*] What is the difference between linaro and sabermod?

    The difference is just what toolchain was used to compile them. Linaro is a highly optimized custom built toolchain, and sabermod is based off aosp toolchain but with lots of extra patches for optimization
    Presently, @bsmitty83 is using @metalspring 's custom toolchain to compile all dirty versions. And, they come with a ramdisk, specially made for all of us, by @osm0sis

    [*] Is Fast Charge broken? I can still access my files with fast charge on!

    Nope. It's not broken. With some super voodoo now you can access your files along with fast charging your battery. But, do it only if you are in a hurry. Fast charging might not be good for battery life(citation needed).

    [*] My Antutu with <insert kernel name here> is bigger/better/wider/thicker than yours.

    Wateva :D

    [*] Can I try this on my favorite 4.2/4.0/2.6/0.1.1 ROM ?

    Check this post by @osm0sis on how to accomplish this not-so-difficult task.

    [*] When will the next version be released?

    Now. Just check the last couple pages, and you'll see @bsmitty83 's got another one for you. :victory:

    [*] Latest version does not have my favorite io/gov. Why he no love me no more?

    Most likely, smitty forgot to add it in. Just put a comment about the missing item and he'll put it back. In the meantime, try out other io/gov/freq/etc. Maybe you'll find a hidden gem (like @Nephilim found illinois)

    [*] I don't like the kernel splash screen (coming soon)

    Eyelids are provided for a reason. Close them for a couple seconds after turning on your phone and you'll get rid of the bootsplash


    [*] What is this synapse thing that I hear about?
    20412_blinking_new.gif

    Synapse is a kernel settings tool, that you can use to tweak kernel settings that smart people on this thread talk about. @osm0sis has been instrumental in making this tool work for our beloved kernel. Thank him for this free tool.

And Yea " 720p works on all of the builds. ":highfive::victory::good::cool:

I've been using art with pa modular gapps , works great , but dalvik is also good too . as for settings I'm not much help , I think the only way to find what's best for you is how you use your phone . that said I generally oc CPU to 1.5ghz min screen on to 500mhz , vr , GPU 500ghz , hyper or interactive , or on demand or any variation of them , zram on , fsync off , no cab .
Glad you decided to try vanir , I don't think you'll regret it

I tried vanir with art and dalvik, both. And, I'd say try with dalvik for a week or so. Then try art. They've done such a good job with this ROM that you'll feel it running almost the same on both runtimes.

I do just the opposite. I underclock my cpu to around 230-920. Max screen off of 525 and Min screen on of 350 (default), and still get no lag on vanir.
Basically, my phone stays on a standby for most of the time. So, UC makes sense for me. It's gonna be different for every user, depending on how they actually use their device.

So far vanir has been great, but I think the battery life is running out fast, will spend a day with it after a full charge to see if I can get over 2:30 hours of screen time

Maybe , idk what ROM you flashed . but as long as its using a stock ramdisk it should be OK




hi, i clean install vanir + pa gapps with your kernel. when switch to ART, it hold at bootlogo. please advice. thx

It did for me when I switched to art , it's still a wip from android but try a battery pull or try different gapps






@bsmitty83 Beastm0d3 ;)

You got one with the newer WiFi drivers for me?


Ill compile you one soon , be known it breaks WiFi tether , so I reverted it but I'll hook you up




I meant to say I dirty flashed a rom and this Kernel.. I guess it doesn't work with ART like someone else reported here..

I'm using it right now on vanir with this kernel .
dategyga.jpg


Again if you want to use art , be prepared its not perfect , but once its up it works good . best I can say is try a clean flash with a stock rom and ram disk

I was trying to flash the latest VANIR and this kernel. I was already using ART and dirty flashed both. I was stuck on the boot animation screen for ~15+ minutes. I then tried to flash a different kernel and it booted up (still using ART)

After everything came up I changed back to Delvik and flashed Dirty_V and everything worked fine.. I try to switch back to ART now and report back..

Thanks

UPDATE:
OK so Delvik->dirty flash Kernel->Switch to ART works.
But ART->dirty flash Kernel doesn't work

confirm ART works fine

I can confirm ART works fine with this kernel The thing making this wierd must be on ROM's side.

ART works fine with this kernel fine on these ROMS:

1.Cyanogen Mod 11 (Sometime BUGGY 1 out of 10)
2.PA beta 2 (Works Good rarely BUGGY 1 out of 1000)
3.Xenon HD (Works Good Lags rarely in transitions)
4.Cyan FOX 2.0.2 (Works Awesome)
4.Vanir AOSP (Works Awesome)
5.Mokee 4.4 (Works Good)

Note: I tried with CLEAN INSTALL ROM + PA GAPPS + Kernel.

This must help you guys ;)

Well , 512mhz I guess that should be . I think my avatar gives away why that happened lol

Glad everyone is digging it , I'll have a new kernel up soon with link time and graphite compiler flags .

Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk

?! Its a 4.4 AK kernel! Got the same options!

Getting some weird lag on Liquid... But its prob the ROM.

Will the kernel work on 4.3?

    • Max Screen Off Frequency @ 525MHz: To avoid music glitches with Poweramp - lowered as it seems to work way better than on previous versions
    • Min Frequency @ 190MHz: works good
    • Min Screen On Frequency @ 230MHz: to avoid choppiness with screen on
    • Interactive Governor
    • Hispeed Frequency @ 920MHz: Frequency which to initially ramp when CPU load hits the value specified in go_hispeed_load
    • Above Hispeed Delay 20000: When speed is at or above hispeed_freq, wait for this long before raising speed in response to continued high load.
    • go_hispeed_load @ 85: more aggressive than stock - and not 'being mean' to the governor
    • Input Boost Frequency @ 525MHz: Frequency which to ramp when you touch the phone
    • boostpulse_duration @ 500000: min time at input_boost_freq after touching the phone - less aggressive and more battery friendly
    • min_sample_time @ 10000: The minimum amount of time to spend at the current frequency before ramping down - gives the cpu the possibility to ramp down frequencies earlier - more battery friendly
    • target_loads @ 75: the lower the target load, the more often the governor will raise CPU speeds to bring load below the target - more aggressive than stock
    • timer_rate @ 10000: sample rate to increase freq - overall snappier feeling but less battery friendly
    • timer_slack @ 60000: maximum time to allow deferring of timer_rate - just raised to a 10'000th
    • sioplus as I/O Control
    • Read Ahead Buffer 512: new measurements lead me to this - you may want to try other values as my storage seems to be borked
    • Async_Expire 2500: Deadline for asynchronous requests
    • Sync_Expire 304: Deadline for synchronous requests (Default ~10 times less than async_expire)
    • fifo_batch 0: Number of requests to issue before checking for expired requests
    • TCP Congestion Control westwood: best results in Switzerland
    • Enable Content Adaptive Brightness: Saves Battery
    • Enable Fast Charge: Lets you charge your phone faster on USB - doesn't break media transfer anymore
    • Overclock GPU to 384 MHz: Same voltages as 307MHz - more battery friendly if you don't need your phone for gaming
    • Headphone Volume Boost is set to 2: I don't use Nexus Louder and just set this to two - can cause music stutters, set it to 1 if so
    • Enable High Performance Sound
    • Dynamic FSYNC: disabled: I had data loss more than once because of this
    • Multicore Power Saving 0: I can't get anything out of this
    • Apply SmittyV 4/6 default minfree settings
    • Disable ZRAM
    • Vibrator strength 70
    • more options available

    How to Install:

    1. Download scripts and rename to no extension
    2. Put the script to system/etc/init.d
    3. Set permission to 755 ( rwxr-xr-x )


    Some important lines:

    Not all of Neph's Settings are present in my scripts (undervolt, blx, vibrator strength) as I don't use them.
    undervolting with init.d scripts is to risky for me, the rest can be added if wanted and if I find the right path to the parameters.

    Please check frequently for changes
