    Chevy's, because I know that it's stable and fast on my phone. Don't want to change what isn't broken.

    About the only differences between AdamZ's and mine:

    1. Potentially different slots/speeds
    2. Potentially varying voltages
    3. I include TUN in my kernel which some people need.

    All in all, like the other said, it's what works best for your phone, and there are enough differences in the hardware such that one may work better for you than another, where it could be the opposite for someone else.

    Agreed! I have used both, and I'm a fan of both. However, Adamz worked better on my droid for the UltimateDroid ROMs. And, if it ain't broke, why fix it? :)

    Sorry to hijack

    chevy I am curious if you have considered making kernels for Koush's cyanogenmod. I would love to see a low voltage 1.2 kernel.

    Yes, I actually did compile a test kernel for his ROM's and had another verify it did work ... but to date I have not gotten any further with it ...

    For me, it definitely has differed from ROM to ROM. On the 2.0.1 ROMs I tried, Chevy's kernels ran cooler than Adam's or DroidMod's, at the same level (1.2GHz). I switched to ESE53 over the weekend and tried several kernels. It turned out that Adam's medium-voltage runs cooler on my current ROM than Chevy's or Adam's low voltage.

    I've had SS 2.0.3 on my phone longer than any other ROM. It works so well, so need to change.

    I'm sure Adamz is awesome too. I used his for a week a while back.

    I use SS 2.03 w/Adamz's low volt 1.1...

    Dumb question, are both apps for undervolting the CPU to extend battery life, and reduce heat?

    I put the words "bekit" "p3droid" "chevyno1" "adamz" on bits of paper and put them in a hat. I then shuffle it around and pick one out.

    I personally can't tell the difference. I've never had a kernel from any of them that was unstable. I can't see any difference in performance or battery life.

    Yes. Some CPUs can't handle the lower voltage and higher clock speeds and maintain stability though which is why the medium voltage kernels exist.

    thanks, I do this on my laptops with RightMarkCPU, I've been looking for something similar for my Eris... now just waiting for kernels to play with.

    After trying all of them, the one that works best for my Droid is AdamZ's LV 1.2GHz. I only could get up to 1.1GHz on Chevy's, and P3 and Bekit's always ran a lil hotter and not quite as responsive. Just weird how each Droid is so diff.

    If this is anything like the PC world... its because of the chips abilities. Each chip is cut from a large silcon waffer. Depending on the location chip 1a and chip 1az (of the same 1 waffer) will have different max and min limits. This is why the semiconductors always set a general voltage and speed rating on their chip sets.

    Same thing happens on laptops/pc's. identical machines and processors some can be volted down and remain stable others will crash right away and must remain at the same voltage. Thats all these phones are... fun portable computers.

    Ah, no one's ever had an answer before. Learn something new everyday. And since it's 3:30 in the am, I have the rest of the day to be ignorant!
