If, like me, you want to give the basic Siyah 6.0beta4 or Siyah 6.0beta5 a go on JB but find it lacks Profiles, (Profiles in Recovery are disabled in these beta versions), in the STweaks app, then here are some quick settings that you can configure...

DEFAULT

Basically this is the setting that the kernels come with and is, by-and-large, the stock settings that will give you a balance between battery and performance. As they stand, they are an improvement on the stock, Samsung, kernel IMHO.

You may want to enable BLN, (Back Light Notificaion) or increase sound in Sound on STweaks.

PERFORMANCE

CPU

DEFAULT CPU GOVERNOR = ondemand

CPU MAX FREQUENCY = 1300 MHz

CPU MIN FREQUENCY = 200MHz

MISC

DEFAULT I/O SCHEDULER = sio or vr

(Do not enable JB Power Saving in JB Settings)


BATTERY

CPU

CPU UNDERVOLTING = -50mV

DEFAULT CPU GOVERNOR = conservative

CPU MAX FREQUENCY
= 800MHz

CPU MIN FREQUENCY = 100MHz (200MHz on beta5 only)

MISC

DEFAULT I/O SCHEDULER = noop

(Do enable JB Power Saving in JB Settings)


ALL CONFIGURATIONS

I uncheck in CPU, GENTLE_FAIR_SLEEPERS

DO NOT, in CPU_UV check, "Set on boot", until you are confident with your settings.

The above are just basic settings for each state that you can adjust to suit your needs accordingly. Proceed with care.

Ah you've seen the light and converted to the siyah side.....

Nice guide to settings old fruit.

Personally I stuck to default but limited max cpu to 10000. On this battery and performance both epic

Not a lot of choice Syd! Dorimanx wasn't doing the business for me on NEAT LSD and I needed a BLN kernel. I must say that I really had forgotten just how good Siyah is. Better battery on these settings than I had with the last 3 Dori releases.

My Battery settings are fine with HD video playback. I don't play intensive games on my phone. A tip I had from gokhanmoral was that you could save a lot more battery by u/c'ing than by u/v'ing. Hence my 800MHz with a -50mV across the board. Power Saving in JB Settings runs at 800MHz anyway.

The only thing I query about it, and I suppose as dorimanx is based on it.....

Isn't this version based on the lsj leak so won't necessarily be as buttery etc?

I don't know for definite as its just something I read elsewhere, I also like the bln so may just flash siyah again tomorrow, but I'll wait and see.

Thanks iron ass though for the guide :-)

I wouldn't worry about that sntaylor... by the time gokhanmoral has worked his magic on it, it bears as much resemblance to the original as Slug does to a member of the Brazilian Women's Beach Violleyball Team!

Siyah 6.0beta 4 on, "Battery", settings shown in post #602

Moderate, for me, usage.

Pretty good Ironass!

I'm back on siyah beta now and must say I missed it. Roughly 2.5% hour drain which is pretty good for me on moderate-ish usage!

You're not wrong there syd old boy! This is the best piece of news since the lsj leak.

Been on beta4 now for a week or so now after a spate of trying out the rest of the also-rans. It's been the best of the lot for me, and I'm not just talking siyah here.

Be interesting to see what gok will put in beta5.

And I bet curiously enough, working dori kernels won't be too far behind....?

What a gent gokhanmoral, the developer, is. He hasn't forgotten his old SGSII chums. Just read the proposed changelog, here. Looks good!

In the meantime, Siyah 6.0beta4 is doing great by me.

Now that Sammy has released the kernel source, it should make a difference for gok. As Hawker says.... Dorimanx shouldn't be too far behind.

Syd... stay away from it until the rest of us have installed it! You know what I mean.

Try again......

SiyahKernel S2-v6.0beta5
Posted on February 17, 2013
only tested on Samsung JB ROM. Although the kernel boots CM10.1 I will not support it until I fix dualbooting.

Changelog:

thanks to mbwatson@XDA for sending me an international Samsung Galaxy S2. Although the screen is cracked it is perfectly readable and also the touchscreen digitizer is working flawlessly.
based on latest I9100 JB Kernel source
home key is fixed. now it works both in recovery as well as CM10.1 and Samsung ROMs
increased default gpu freqs a little bit. the lowest freq is now 108MHz.
updated SuperSu.
fixed CPU and I/O scheduler changes in STweaks not being applied after reboot.
possible workaround for bootloop bug.
added boot animation support
removed custom CPU steps. the kernel has 6 CPU steps now (1400, 1200, 1000, 800, 500, 200)
fixed stock video player
power saving mode is now working
TODO & Known Problems

dual-boot code (both recovery and ramfs) needs to be refactored to support Samsung JB.
I need to find another trick to get cam working on both Sammy and CM ROMs without losing 50MB+ RAM.
cypress modifications (BLN, BLNWW, touchpad led timeout etc) should be moved to new driver source
needs to be tested more
TAR


ZIP (asserts are taken from cm10.1. if you cannot install cm10.1 with the recovery you are using then you won’t be able to install the kernel using CWM-flashable zip. the asserts are there to prevent curious&dull users hard-bricking their device and it is NOT a bug)

Let the fun begin!

This version of Siyah will have a lot to live up to after Siyah 6.0beta4.

Well done sntaylor... managing a baby and posting a changelog!

(Nice to see you've got your priorities right )

UPDATE

No problems installing Siyah 6.0beta5 to NEAT ROM Full LSJ after a GS2KernelWipe.

Had to re-install STweaks again.

CPU MIN FREQUENCY now 200MHz

Wi-Fi connects OK

PowerAmp music Player OK

MX Video Player on HD videos OK

Stock camera OK

Stock video camera, record and playback OK

Using battery settings from post #602

Have done 5 reboots with no problems.

Well, very early results are very good so far. No freezes, FC's or SoD's. Deep Sleep, 95%, is more like a short course of death on this release and is one of the best I've ever had on a kernel, with under 1% per hour battery drain.

How are you finding it Hawker old bean?

Very good so far my old committed belcher.

Everything is silky smooth (in fact, it may be placebo, but I think its smoother than before, not noticing one single lag up to now), getting good deep sleep so far so battery should be favourable (obviously will test over the next few days), and all seems to be working fine ie. camera/video/wifi/bluetooth.

Early signs are that we are getting another Gokhan masterpiece.
And now he has an S2 again, in the immortal words of D:Ream, Things can only get better!

Oh crikey! Another Hawker/Syd bandwagon!

Right! Back to life.. back to reality, in my original post earlier today, I said...

Well, I know it has only been on for about 14 hours so far, for me, but I can say that this release from the kernel master, gokhanmoral, is not disappointing me so far.

Normally I reserve judgement for 2 or 3 days at least, to allow the kernel to, "bed in", but at this rate, unless there is a spectacular failing that I'm totally unaware of, this kernel will not only equal the previous beta4 but may even surpass it. I can say that it is certainly no worse so far.

In the 14 hours, with 4 hours sleep and 10 hours moderate usage, my battery has dropped by 23% which, for me, puts this ahead of all other kernels released for JB so far. I just hope it is compatible with NEAT Full MS1.

Since this is a, "Beta", release, the configurations for Profiles is non operative in Recovery > kernel and so therefore all settings must be done manually. Also there is no Backup/Restore feature for the beta releases. I am sure that gok will rectify these in the final release, now that he has an SGSII to test it on.

So far... a big

EDIT It is fully compatible with JB, NEAT ROMM Full, MS1.

Had an error come up when trying to flash with lsj :-( think I'll have to stick with the first beta! Either that or I'll try again with mobile Odin instead of the zip if anyone else has used it successfully with lsj!

Can anyone else tell I'm bored sitting up at stupid o'clock with the wee man that has his body clock all wrong?

Errr... yes! Top Tip: Pour yourself a large glass of cognac and take a big swig... now, breathe the fumes all over sntaylor jnr. Repeat until one or other or both, are fast asleep.

Had the same problem. Everytime ending up with kernel panic and (status 7) error.
Flashed the .tar with Odin, everything went well and now i`m in testing it.

@ironass
Can I run Siyah 6.0beta5 with Power Saving enabled ?
I read your post regarding Siyah 6.0beta4, where you advise to enable PS mode for Battery profile; just curious if you had time to run the same configuration on the latest release.

In a word... yes!

The only thing that I had to do was to adjust the CPU MAX FREQUENCY in STweaks to 800MHz to match that of CPU power saving in Power Saving if you have selected that.

Yah I had that problem with the original beta version for jellybean but the difference was this time I had it correctly install at 2am then it froze and boot looped on me 20 or so hours later, and wouldn't flash a second time! :-\

I already love this kernel Super smooth, good battery after 2 days, and sorted out recent problem with deleting files, especially media files like mp3. When i wanted to delete file let say 50mb it took 10 sec to make this operation. Now with current Siyah it`s less than sec

After a complete disaster on Friday, when I flashed Dorimanx kernel, 7.48 and then had to do a restore, see, here... I chose a known, good, nandroid backup of NEAT ROM Full LSJ with the Siyah 6.0beta4 kernel, which I find is a little more battery friendly and snappier for me than the beta5 release.

NEAT ROM Full + Siyah 6.0beta4 moderate usage.

I am going to give it a try, just flashed Siyah 6.05beta5 on NEAT ROM Full LS8. I have been on NEAT ROM Full LS8 with PhilZ 4.35 for about 2 weeks now. Not any particular problem but the battery: the average battery hold time was 1day 9 hours (as reported by GSam battery monitor app). I am not a heavy user, I do not use 3G, just wifi from time to time, no games, nothing really cpu demanding.

But one thing is that I do not have mobile network coverage at work, and this may play a significant effect on the battery hold time. I was considering putting the phone in flight mode whenever I arrive at work, but I always forget... and with flight mode the wifi will not work.

Let's see if anything will change with Siyah 6.05beta5.

Have noticed Wi-Fi issues with beta 5 over weekend. Patchy connections and poor data speeds. Back to beta 4 and all fine.

Anyone else had this?

I was just saying to the Mrs that the wifi seems a bit slow!

Also finding battery life quite poor, I would revert back to beta 4 but cwm isn't letting me flash the extra file for mobile Odin, it keeps saying there is an issue with emmc or something, will try again when I get home and will take proper notes!

I have not noticed anything like this with beta5 (I mean patchy wifi or poor download speed) but I have not checked in detail. Regarding the battery life, it's way better than PhilZ 4.35 I was using until yesterday. Now I am at 37% after 24 hours of use, my average PhilZ battery life was 30 hours.

Decided to try the cwm file for beta 4, and the recent download of it now works the way its supposed to, still doesn't help getting mobile Odin to work, but at least I'm to beta 4!

Also, it didn't come with stweaks installed, which is a first for me!

It would be if you are trying to use it on ICS, as per your post, here...

I am no longer able to directly text number from a phone number I find on my chrome desktop.

Did you do a GS2KernelWipe before installing Siyah 6.0beta5?

Are you using a stock profile in STWeaks?

Have you under/over clocked or under/over volted?

Which version of JB are you using it on, stock or custom ROM?

no I didn't do the GS2kernelWipe, I don't think that was mentioned in the root guide. Using everything is stock, no custom rom.

For obvious reasons, you cannot use Hawker's KernelWiper prior to being rooted and so therefore it is shown in post #1 of this thread instead.

Only if you are having problems after rooting. If you are already rooted and coming from another kernel, the KernelWipe is done prior to flashing Siyah.

Default The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good

Gokhan Moral, developer of the Siyah kernel, has had a baby boy!

(I'm guessing it was Mrs Moral that actually gave birth. I do know some biology)


The Bad

There will be no further kernel developement until some time in April.


The Ugly

Do not expect Gokhan to support the new Samsung Galaxy SIV...

"I still have an s2 and xperia-t to play with and I am no way getting another Samsung any time soon (especially not S4)."

Great news on the baby , I don't have an xda account so can't congratulate him, but still.... Congratulations :-P

Sad to hear about the s4, especially after he jumped to the s3 so quickly :-(

But then as tempted as I am to consider buying a phone on developer support, the reality is I'm going top go for the one with the best specs etc that suit me.... Though I have found that although rooted, I've yet to put a custom ROM or kernel onto my nexus 7, but think that's mainly cos its a shared device, and my Mrs would kill me! Lol
