    Since I did not see a post for this and thought it would be a good one stop bump:

    Can anyone who upgraded their kernel and got good results post all their setup parameters. I want to upgrade and it would be easier for me or anyone else to just emulate it.

    Also please name the kernel and if its only for a specific ROM.

    You can't really do this because a kernel that works on my phone may make yours run horrible, I don't know why but kernels vary phone to phone. Although if you want to see what I'm running check the sig. The one in my sig is generally a good one but if it messes up on your pone try the one with less aggressive HAVS.

    You say you want to upgrade - are you using a custom/ROM kernel, right now, or are you just looking for suggestions for what to start with? I'm using mikfroyo 4.4, right now, with the same kernel as Urge (MA 4.3.2 CFS nosbc more HAVS, in case he changes his sig). Like he said, though, you have to try out various setups on your phone, as they might not work the same for you as they do for us. It's a good kernel to start with, though. It also depends on your usage. If you use the phone a lot, and it spends more time awake than idle, use a non-HAVS kernel. If your phone has frequent periods of inactivity, consider a HAVS kernel. Start with more aggressive HAVS, then switch to less aggressive HAVS, as Urge said. Also, try both CFS and BFS to see which one gets better battery life/performance for you.

    Not to get off topic her but have you tried Mik's 4.5 yet Akaza?

    Not yet. He released it on a Sunday night, and I need to know my phone works, now, lol. I'll try it out this weekend.

    Cool I'm probably going to flash it today and try it out, then I'll decide if I want to keep it or not, I'm not sure if I like Myn's or MikFroyo better yet.

    Not to derail the thread even more, but I like mik's more, aside from the theming. Thankfully, there are enough theming options out there to make it better.

    Yeah I have decided to keep Mik's unless something really big comes out that tops it, and I just flashed the new version and like it even more, not much has changed but I like a couple of things he added. I am still going to keep a backup of Myn's just incase.

    and still, no set ups listed.

    Lol. I think there are other threads like this, but if you insist...

    -Netarchy 4.3.2 CFS more aggressive HAVS nosbc.
    -Conservative governor
    -Setcpu main main profile set to 245/1152
    -Setcpu screen off profile set to 245/576
    -Setcpu charging profile set to 245/1152

    ROM is Mikfroyo 4.4, but Netarchy will work on any Sense ROM. The battery will usually drop anywhere between 0 and 2% during the night, but that could be due to other factors beyond just the kernel. Want to know anything else?

    Well it's a start. I guess I should have been more technical and said "profile settings" for the kernel.

    Thanxs for the replies.....
    I wanted to get "FULL" profiles such as the one AK gave (or more info if the application provides even more detail).
    In this way when experimentation is used, if one ever needs the orig profiles this thread can be used as a reference guide.
    Keep em coming

    You are not supposed to use profiles with the Smartass governor. They are supposed to conflict.
     
  16. akazabam

    akazabam Android Expert

    They conflict because they are both trying to set the min/max frequency at the same time. Did anyone say they were using both?

    Not that I have seen. My post was in reference to the "FULL" profiles request that was made previous to mine. :)

    I'm running the EXACT same setup as Akazabam.

    i am also using same kernel...dont have any setcpu profiles made at the moment but wanna explore, for better battery life ideally...any recommendations? Also, are all your profiles set to conservative??

    The two I have are probably the most common. I've also added > 43 C - 245/756. That one has the highest priority, with charging after that, and screen off last. That is probably the most common profile setup. Under those conditions, if the phone gets too hot, it will underclock, no matter what other conditions are met. Otherwise, if the phone is plugged in, there's no reason to care about battery life, so it can overclock even if the screen is off. Once you unplug it, though, and the screen is off, it will underclock.

    Other common profiles are ones used to scale the maximum frequency down as battery life goes down. If you're going to do that, you want to set the priority in reverse. That means, that the profile with the lowest battery life has the higher profile of the other battery level profiles. Those should all have a lower priority than the three I've listed above.

    If you want more information, read this link. Just remember, if you're going to use the smartass governor, don't use profiles. They'll conflict. Also, if you use HAVS, you'll probably be better off using only those first three profiles I mentioned. Most people report worse battery life with other profiles. You'll have to try it for yourself. In theory, though HAVS and profiles shouldn't conflict. HAVS deals with variable voltage, while profiles deal with variable frequency.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and all profiles are set to conservative (frenchy's reply reminded me :)). Really, there's no good reason to use a different governor for other profiles, except in a few conditions. For example, when the phone is plugged in, there's no reason to care about battery life, so you can set that to use the on-demand governor. That will give you slightly better performance while the phone is plugged in. I don't use my phone while it's plugged in much, and when I do, I don't really need the performance boost, so I don't bother. It's all a matter of trial and error to get everything exactly how you want it. There are just too many combinations to list here.

    You're going to want a screen off profile, definitely. Mine's currently set at 245/245. If you use any applications such as Navigation, and the screen turns off, you're going to need to scale your CPU a bit higher so it doesn't conflict with that running program; 245/576 is a good scaling range.

    Also, all governors with all my profiles are set at conservative btw.

    thanks fella's...i've read around and like to hear personal preferences as well...

    4.3.2 cfs more havs nosbc has provided me w/ about 15hrs battery life w/ 15% remaining w/ moderate use and no setcpu profiles...will try out ur preferences thanks :)

    i think i'll give the smarta** profile a shot to just to see what i can get as well...
