**These settings are meant for 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 4.3 and 4.4 kernels that I specify, the tweaks to certain areas however should work on more than just the kernels I include in this thread.**





Hey guys, as most of you from the AK Kernel thread may know (or now the DirtyV Kernel thread) and a few others that checked my signature links, I take great pride in customizing the best possible kernel settings for excellent performance and great battery, Since we've moved on from Android 4.2.x based roms and Stefano (AK) has since moved to the Nexus 4 I have been trying out other kernels, this means new settings to tweak and improve.

This Thread is dedicated to the custom kernel settings I use with some of my favorite kernels, I will still include my AK Kernel 4.2.1/4.2.2 settings but in addition I will be adding some new settings for a few kernels I think are quite impressive. Feel free to ask any questions you like, take from my settings what you like and answer anyone elses questions that you may know the answer to. I want this thread to be a community of help and not just from me. I do not expect you all to use my custom settings exactly, if you want to experiment feel free to, these are just a base to start with if you are not familiar with tweaking kernels and for those that are and enjoy my settings/colors, feel free to use them as they are.

The 4.4.x kernel settings will be occasionally updated if and when I feel there are improvements worthy of making so keep an eye on the thread for information on changes that may have been made to the OP.​

I have no lag, no freezing, good battery life and excellent performance with these settings

Also, my ram sits at between 234mb and 145mb free on AK, ASKP and Golden kernels and between 355mb and 270mb free on Mpokang, DirtyV and Tiny kernels due the BIGMEM on Mpokang and DirtyV and ASRAM on Tiny. I have 128 apps installed.

My battery stats are as so, on low usage I get about 21hrs to 23hrs of standby and 1.5hrs to 2hrs of on-screen time. On normal use I get about 15hrs to 17hrs of standby and about 2hrs to 3hrs of on-screen time. On heavy usage (which is only occasional) I get about 11hrs to 13hrs of standby and about 3hrs to 4hrs of on-screen time. Take into consideration, these battery stats are from a Toro Galaxy Nexus, this means those of you on a Maguro (GSM) model will probably get much better battery life than even this by using my settings.


Section 3.

Jellybean/Kit-Kat Minfree Settings:
(Be advised, you must have the Donation version of Trickster Mod in order to add minfree settings)

Forground App: 10
Visible App: 20
Secondary Server: 100
Hidden App: 120
Content Provider: 95
Empty App: 195

These minfrees have been tested on DirtyV Kernels but should work just as well on all others. I've personally noticed an increase of 500+ points on AnTuTu as well as noticeable improvements on performance in everyday usage of my device.


Section 4.

Lollipop Minfree Settings:
(Be advised, you must have the Donation version of Trickster Mod in order to add minfree settings)

Forground App: 50
Visible App: 70
Secondary Server: 116
Hidden App: 130
Content Provider: 165
Empty App: 370

These minfrees have been tested on the latest SmittyL Lollipop Beta kernels but should work just as well on all other lollipop.



Color Settings:

Content Adaptive Brightness: On
Contrast: -5
Gamma Adjustment: 5
Gamma Offset Red: -5
Gamma Offset Green: -3
Gamma Offset Blue: 7
Color Multiplier Red: 260
Color Multiplier Green: 276
Color Multiplier Blue: 340
Regular Brightness Settings: Autobrightness is off and I have it manually set to 50%

If anyone has issues when the Green Gamma Offset is a negative number boost all Gamma Offset Colors up by 3 to make Red -2, Green 0 and Blue 10, then drop Contrast down to -8 rather than -5, this should give you almost the same result.


My color settings work with any custom kernel, I feel that they have a remarkably crisp and vibrant tone to them, feel free to use them and tweak them as you see fit. :)

i read in the past not to set color multiplier to 200+. is this still valid? yours is much higher i wonder if this will harm your display after a while...

Good question, actually it is not an issue, especially since I set my brightness to 50%, even if you had it at 100% it would not affect it though, I've been using these color settings since I got my Galaxy Nexus and I've had no problems whatsoever with my screen.

Look at it this way, you do not see issues with LCD television screens for at least 3 to 4 years after you get them the thing about our devices is that we will most likely have upgraded before any of these settings could possibly affect them if they even do. ;)

If another user's experience is useful, I used multipliers even higher than Nephilim and the only impact was a bright screen with vibrant colors. I used lux auto brightness so at time my screen would be at 100% brightness.

Thanks for the thread. Have been using your setting for screen for a week and loving them. Had to do the green trick to fix the screen though. I was using your ASKP settings but kept getting freezes coming out of deep sleep/screen off. Have been using golden ever since. I will try your golden settings as well.

Thanks for continuing to update your settings. I was ready to get rid of the gnex, but hopefully with my new battery coming and some good settings I can hold out for a while.

Congrats on getting he thread going Nephilim.

I've been getting much better battery using askp kernel. Golden kernel didn't impress me very much..

Also have you saw the program core2 management in the playstore? It let's you toggle core1 off completely. I haven't tried it yet fully. But so far seems smooth and stable with only using 1 core and max freq at 1000mhz...just a thought

Thanks for this thread !

This is a screenshot I just took. The black empty space In the graph shows where I flashed askp after trying golden. I also turned 1 core off. Much better battery on my end :)

    Jellybean/Kit-Kat Minfree Settings:
    (Be advised, you must have the Donation version of Trickster Mod in order to add minfree settings)

    Forground App: 10
    Visible App: 20
    Secondary Server: 100
    Hidden App: 120
    Content Provider: 95
    Empty App: 195

    These minfrees have been tested on DirtyV Kernels but should work just as well on all others. I've personally noticed an increase of 500+ points on AnTuTu as well as noticeable improvements on performance in everyday usage of my device.


    Section 4.

    Lollipop Minfree Settings:
    (Be advised, you must have the Donation version of Trickster Mod in order to add minfree settings)

    Forground App: 50
    Visible App: 70
    Secondary Server: 116
    Hidden App: 130
    Content Provider: 165
    Empty App: 370

    These minfrees have been tested on the latest SmittyL Lollipop Beta kernels but should work just as well on all other lollipop.



    Color Settings:

    Content Adaptive Brightness: On
    Contrast: -5
    Gamma Adjustment: 5
    Gamma Offset Red: -5
    Gamma Offset Green: -3
    Gamma Offset Blue: 7
    Color Multiplier Red: 260
    Color Multiplier Green: 276
    Color Multiplier Blue: 340
    Regular Brightness Settings: Autobrightness is off and I have it manually set to 50%

    If anyone has issues when the Green Gamma Offset is a negative number boost all Gamma Offset Colors up by 3 to make Red -2, Green 0 and Blue 10, then drop Contrast down to -8 rather than -5, this should give you almost the same result.


    My color settings work with any custom kernel, I feel that they have a remarkably crisp and vibrant tone to them, feel free to use them and tweak them as you see fit. :)

    Alright guys, if you are using Metalspring's SmittyV v2 kernel here are the PegasusQ governor control tunables I've created:

    cpu_down_rate: 15

    cpu_up_rate: 10

    down_differential: 8

    dvfs_debug: 0

    freq_for_responsiveness: 350000

    freq_step: 45

    hotplug_freq_1_1: 450000

    hotplug_freq_2_0: 300000

    hotplug_freq_2_1:450000

    hotplug_lock: 0

    hotplug_rq_1_1: 275

    hotplug_rq_2_0: 275

    hotplug_rq_2_1: 200

    ignore_nice_load: 0

    io_is_busy: 1

    max_cpu_lock: 0

    sampling_down_factor: 2

    sampling_rate: 50000

    sampling_rate_min: 10000

    up_threshold: 80

    up_threshold_at_min_freq: 190000


    This kernel absolutely flies, this is the fastest and smoothest my device has been in a long time, battery so far is great as well! All other settings are the usual SmittyV/DirtyV settings I have posted in the OP. Enjoy


    P.S. These settings are just numbers picked at random as usual. :p

    Ok...well which one of those three do you think is faster? Also, I keep hearing about f2fs and ART, and I have no idea what that is..lol! Again I'm totally brand new to this. I could google the terms but you really seem to know what you're talking about and I thought I would get your explanation of them.

    Thanks again! I really appreciate all of your help!!
    basically the 3 are the same , the biggest differences are the amount of ram available to the system . the nexus allocates ram for the camera to use , but it was discovered we can change the amount without affecting camera functionality . smittyV is the kernel that I personally use . it's normal ram , dirtyV is the main kernel , it has more CPU governors than my version , and the dirtyV-SR version has the most available ram but breaks 1080 recording and video playback . so its up to you which to use .
    ART is a replacement for the dalvik just in time compiler , its a bit smoother , apps open faster , and it will be the default run-time in the next android version . you can find the two under settings/developer options .

    f2fs is a filesystem , like ext4 , NTFS , etc . it is supposed to be made specifically for solid-state drives and flash memory . currently for the gnex its new and not as polished as ext4 , but it does make a bit of difference combating lag during play store installs and other things. be warned , to use f2fs you must format your phones storage , so you will lose everything if you don't back the data up on your computer or somewhere else . I'd say hold off on f2fs until your a little more "seasoned" at the phone customization .

    hope this helps a little , and welcome to the fun stuff [emoji3]

    **DIRTYV UPDATE**

    *Changed I/O Scheduler from Noop to Zen, I/O Tunable Settings Are As Followed:

    add_random: 0
    iostats: 0
    nomerges: 0
    rotational: 0
    rq_affinity: 2

    async_expire: 2500
    fifo_batch: 0
    sync_expire: 304
    (won't allow me to set 300, which was my original choice, really don't think there is a difference though lol)


    Thanks,
    Neph
