About DireWolf Kernel

I added governors, i/o schedulers, various other things to get the maximum out of the device. It supports spectrum profiles and also has a lot of other stuffs that tweakers like.

Nah mate, I haven't found my sweet spot yet. Well Dire is spectrum compatible so for the meantime go with spectrum. I'm not using spectrum though. The only significant thing I've done is just set the max freq to 1651 and min freq to 200, deactivated CC (core control), turned on autosmp Hotplug and rewrite the the interactive governor's target load to "1 200000:90" to make sure it drops to 200Mhz when my phones idle. Maple was set on default (thank LordShenron for that) and now we have westwood (total bliss) as TCP. Oh I did change entropy settings, I don't know why in Infinity it had a big difference in snappiness, but when I changed the read_wakeup_threshold to 80 (def 64) it speed up my 5A a lil. Haven't seen major difference in Dire though, maybe it's not needed, but still I'm holding on to 80

I don't know if this is right (havent have the time to read the logs or dmsegs) but I think with autosmp on, sometimes it makes the device hard to wake up (from sleep) and there was this one time (yesterday) that when I was on the road with music on, the player just played choppy sounds as if the my phone was slow (no heating issues though). So I rebooted and it didn't happen again. I don't know what happened back then, but I don't see it as a bug because after that it didn't since I rebooted the phone.

Try finding your own sweet spot on dire and post it here, I'd love to implement it too

Agreed my friend. But I'm really grateful that you showed up. We would've lost updated kernels without your DireWolf. Will be rooting for any development from you. Keep it up, and stay happy mate. I expect nothing more than you doing your hobby. If you got to leave the devs, thats fine its your life and its way much important than anything else.

Yes AutoSMP is little bit harsh. I also found it makes device wakeup a difficult task. But since i found its quite efficient in battery saving so i kept it. Now the choppy sound will most likely be fixed if u add some speaker gain (as i tested). And for the death sleep i think autosmp after wakeup doesn't let the cpus come online, so if after wakeup all cpus come online at the higest frequency there will be no issues. I will test this soon.

Take your time mate, thanks for the quick reply, If I got issues I'll PM you on Telegram or I'll just chat on Catalyst & Dire group.
