I know that the kernel itself doesn't actually use the cache/dalvik but I always thought it was a good idea to wipe them. Don't apps like voltage control and external tweaks have cached info about the kernels, so would it not be beneficial to clear these?

/cache certainly isn't necessary Shotty.
I see your point about VC for example, but the script removes voltage control settings anyway. The only possibility perhaps is if you use VC and save the boot settings as a startup service.

I've now put up v1.8

Inspired by your words Shotty, it now removes Voltage Control, NSTools and SetCPU dalvik-cache areas specifically.

Are you competing with gokhanmoral, of Siyah kernel fame, for the most releases in one week?

I've given up using NSTools as it doesn't seem to be required with the Siyah kernel and ExTweaks on Battery config... or is it?

I think you need NSTools if you want BLN to work for missed calls butty.
I forgot about exTweaks.
Hang fire on downloading 1.8. Download it in 10 minutes or so....

Edit. Ok to download. Now includes ExTweaks.

@ hawker. Do you want me to share links to this on XDA on new Dorimanx kernel support thread.

Thanks again. I've been a fan of your work for a while. And so happy to hear you are using Dorimanx as your kernel and continuing your project.

Thanks buddy

Should prove useful and help many users and can be used as part of debug if anyone has issues to see if it resolves it.

I have copied your op and put a link to this thread with credits to you.

The same issue affecting the rom nuke script effected this too.?

Sorry about that caplja... you just can't get the staff these days!

I will have a strong word with the old Welsh Wizard when he's finished hanging out his toilet paper to dry.

In the meantime I have PM'd you with a link.

Strange happenings. On siyah beta 4, home button working fine. Switched to new dori. All fine. Flashed back siyah, using kernel wipe (of course) and home button dead. Back to dori, works again. Back to siyah, dead. Presumably something from dori has been left, despite using your wonderful kernel wipe.

Or is this something to do with the preload/symlinks malarkey?

Any ideas old boy?

This was a Dori problem which supposedly was fixed with 7.37.

I think (but not sure) flashing PhilZ then subsequently flashing Siayh may get around the problem.

then until a fix is released by Dori you will need to do the following:

use adb or terminal, then type the following (RTN after each line):


GPIOKEYS="/system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kl";
if [ -e $GPIOKEYS ]; then
KHCOUNT=`cat $GPIOKEYS | grep "102" -c`;
if [ $KHCOUNT == 1 ]; then
sed -i 's/102/172/g' $GPIOKEYS;
fi;
fi;

It will work and was the easiest and quickest way to do it. But a little bit of advice.

You want this due to going to another kernel other then dorimanx correct?

If you plan on flashing onto jeboo version 1.1c then job done and a decent and fairly stable kernel.

Though one thing I don't like is its forces a complete cache and dalvik clean on you.

But if you are to stay on that kernel then that's fine.

If you intend to move to siyah kernal version 6.0b4 then you need to this.


In Dorimanx kernel recovery flash jeeboo kernel
Don't reboot into its recovery as jeboo recovery has issues in it preventing you to flash siyah.

Then flash hawks kernel clean script to remove any residual dorimanx files.

In same dorimanx recovery flash siyah 6.0b4

Then reboot into siyah kernal recovery


You have to do another full dalvik and cache clean and this time fix permissions.

Job done and you are on siyah with working Home button

But i much prefer Dorimanx right now especially sense the sound issues have been discovered and the work around is simple and working fantastic for me;-)

Yup, it was going from dori back to siyah I was having issues so this is very helpful thanks.

I'm finding dori a stuttering nightmare, but most on here will be bored of hearing about my kernel woes, so not going to mention it!

Syd it's not your infamous kernel KOD, it's a bug we all seem to have. Setting CPU idle mode to idle only in STweaks, then rebooting has cured it for me and everybody else it seems.

It works. It took us ages to debug and find. We know the cause we know the solution.

To read about it here

If you select idle or AFTR that alone will work. I used both but apparently AFTR will be easier on the battery.

Or if you are willing to change governor that lulz in both onscreen and off screen will work with AFTR + LPA

This is what I'm using and is working great

Thanks fellas.

It was not actually this bug I was having issues with. Dori 7.37 was giving me a lot of stutter on scrolling. My screen was like porky pig on a bad day. All seems fine on 7.38 however.

But thanks for the solutions for the sound bug, it works, so now I have a nice smooth screen and perfect sound. Happy days.

I have had slight music stutter on aftr only, but it only happened once in a 45 minute commute home in my car via blue tooth. It happened about 4 our 5 times in the morning commute on the default setting.

I've set it to idle only now so I'll see how this performs when I go into work on Tuesday.

Everything else for 7.38 seems to be within very well for me. Nice and smooth with good battery both in use and on idle where I've been commonly getting 96+% deep sleep.

Once the /preload backup issue has been addressed this kernel will be a must-have.
