Default [Kernel][CM7][CM9][MIUI][CTMOD/H.A.R.] Kato Kernel Beta 0.4 - Overclocked 946MHz[Update 3/30/12]

FOR EXPERIENCED USERS ONLY!!!


Thanks to: Hroark13, zcop, Koumajutsu, The~Skater~187, PlayfulGod, thachtunganh, Shabby and Interdepth. And the crash test dummies for putting their hardware in harms way Johnny424, Wetbiker7, thomasmbl, Slayer72.

DISCLAIMER: Extremely low or higher than normal frequencies may freeze your phone. Especially high frequencies (such as those enabled in certain custom kernels) have a risk of shortening the life of your phone. If your phone freezes, just yank out the battery. I CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THIS KERNEL MAY DO TO YOUR PHONE.

I have made a kernel that has been overclocked from 800MHz to 944Mhz (I was able to play angrybirds space with no lag, no reboots). Everyones phone is different an will respond as such to this kernel.

Our cpu Qualcomm S1 MSM7627-3 is recommended at a 600mhz (stock 800 speed could technically be seen as an overclock) so I would like to progress slowly upwards in frequency... hopefully twards 1000mhz

For information on what each IOScheuler and CPU Governor does
[REF][TWEAKS] Kernel Governors, Modules, I/O Schedulers, CPU Tweaks, AIO App Configs - xda-developers
Thanks to The~Skater~187 for this info

Installation:
1. Make sure you have a working version of cm7, cm9, or MIUI (if you are coming from another ROM allow the ROM to boot first!)
2. Reboot into Recovery mode
3. Flash the respective .zip
4. Reboot
5. Use Voltage Control to change your CPU governor to "Ondemand (or whatever you see fit)

**I cant stress enough, Make sure your ROM boots before adding this kernel**

Note: This kernel is based on the cm7 mapfix kernel. There is no need to install it. If you do it will remove oc

Changelog

Version 0.4
Changed max frequency to 946MHz (Improved stability)
Added I/O Scheduler -> Cfq
Tweeked OC script
Changed CPU Governor polling to 50 ticks (hopefully improves stability by increasing time between frequency changes)
Added Active Voltage Selection ::shrugs::
Added sd-ext version for CM7
Default frequency 800MHz
Changed default I/O scheduler to S(IO)

Version 0.3:
Added clocking slots up to 944Mhz
Added I/O Schedulers > V(R) and S(IO)
Added CPU Governors > Brazillianwax, interactive, scary, lazy, smoothass, savagedzen, interactivex, lagfree, minmax, smarassV2, and Lionheart

Version 0.2:
Updated to kernel version 2.6.35.14
Resolved bootloop some users were experiencing
Cleaned script and added parts from thachtunganh's script.
Added clocking slots up to 900MHz
Removed 19MHz slot (19MHz can still be used for power collapse if you have it enabled in your build.prop)

Version 0.1
Initial Release

I would like testers to file reports in this format:
Speed/responsiveness:
Battery life:
Phone temperature:

Screenshots:



The CTMOD/STOCK (halfassed ROM) kernel is nothing more than a kanged KoumaKernel 2.3
to configure sd-ext support you must visit his thread: http://androidforums.com/galaxy-prevail-all-things-root/429740-kernel-gb-koumakernel-2-3-a.html

DUE TO A BUG IN CM9/MIUI SD-EXT IS NOT SUPPORTED... YET...

Only cm7 for now. I could make a kouma 1.3 but I didn't because it is such a old version.

@hroark I will share my source when I make it back home

the only problem that I see with updating it is that when we use any other kernel string than 2.6.35.7


we have to hex edit the FSR and RSF modules

I was able to find other modules that work with a longer string name but it has to be exactly 12 characters

I found that the RFS modules seem to load and run, but can't/won't mount our device

hmm


well the only ROM that is still using RFS is the pure stock ROMs I think


so basically we have to keep the string 2.6.35.7 if we want RFS

but I really do not want or need RFS support in any of my ROMs

yeah, RFS is junk
I built some YAFFS drivers because some people were wanting to build roms based on the older FS, but I found no way to test it.

You use flash_eraseall to format a device as yaffs, and it requires a character device. The FSR drivers seem to only support Block mode.
I'm thinking of trying the onenand driver since it's claimed that it's FSR turned Opensource, but they don't seem to work for block mode

I have to admit, CTMod still holds a better battery charge than CM7 does on my phone... and I am kinda partial to CTMod because of that... it seems like I flash my phone every other week with CTMod and CM7... can't make my damn mind up!

Thanks you guys! Look forward to seeing a kernel for CTMod for this as well.

Crap ! I thought that I had fixed it but I didn't . I got it to the CM7 bootscreen this time but it started looping again then it just stayed on the Android screen . I've tried it with and without a sd-ext . I've cleared the Dalvik and everything that is supposed to be done but it just won't take it man . lol . I'm still working on it but I've done just about everything that I know of to do . I'll post results when either I get it or I don't . I'm gonna run through everything again 1 more time .

OK Trench , it's confirmed that my phone will not take this . I've used every tool in my toolbox and it will not fully boot . It's gone from only flashing between the Android screen and Samsung screen to actually making it to the CM7 boot animation then it just keeps looping until it freezes . I tried man . I'll wait until you figure out what's up with it . Thanks again posting this and I know you'll figure out what's going on .
