    I have been playing around with differnent kernels and have been trying to find the perfect match (if there is one). I have settled on chevys 800lv. It runs fast and smooth at 800 and idling down to 125 when the screen is off has worked out fine. Today I unhooked at 6 am and as of right now (7:20PM)I am at 80 percent with low use (couple of calls, bit of interent browsing and checking email).
    I have run faster kernels up to 1100 and have gotten quadrant scores in the 1500s but to tell you the truth I don't notice the phone running any faster or smoother at 1100 v. 800.
    Can someone explain the benifit of running at 1100 and what the quadrant scores mean in real life? I thought it would make the internet browser run faster but it seems the same, or if there is a difference it is not perceivable.
    On another note I have to say we are lucky to have people developing all these roms and kernels and have made donations to those I have used...much appreciated. I can't imagine the time these folks put into making these add ons to our phones.

    there are other more graphically intense things that i can tell a difference for, nesoid for one. Quadrant scores have also been shown to not be all that reliable or accurate

    Past 1GHz, there is little to no benefit in my eyes. Benchmarks mean nothing, by the way. They use unrealistic methods of testing (pure stressing CPU, GPU, etc.)

    If you use the browser heavily, you will notice the difference in load speed.

    i would say that if you cant tell the difference then stay at 800mhz as this will give you extended battery life. some users just dont need the speed. if you do want to see the difference in speed, or think you may need it, for one you could press the phone dialer and notice the how much quicker a one gig kernal brings the app up. it will also load web pages quicker but it will not increase your 3g speeds.
    now all this said if you want to see real speed increases, load the rom liquid frozen yogurt and one of slayhers kernals....WOW! :)

    If I don't like a kernel, what is the process for removal?

    You have to replace it with another kernel.

    BACKUP using x+power before flashing kernels!

    You can settle on a lower or higher speed kernel, a lower or higher voltage kernel, or a combination of the two. Good luck flashing :)

    I personally use a 1.25ghz OC kernel, but only ramp it up when emulating (I'm looking at you, FFVII).


    Unfortunately, the phone gets very hot to the touch, so I don't play PSX for very long. So I keep it in the 800-1000 max value during normal usage.

    Thank for the response. By going to LFY will I notice an increase in internet browser speed? This is really where I would like to see a differnce. I honestly cannot tell a differnce in browser speed with the 800 v. 1100 kernel using FRG22.
    Also do you have to download v 1.2 of LFY before you dowload the 1.4 patch?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    The pages will load faster. But only as fast as your g3 or wifi speed will allow. You can load liquid v1.4 reguardless of what rom, you are currently using.

    I just tried out the slahyer 1000uv and it flat out smokes! It works faster on interactive 1000/400 than any other 1000 kernel on performance. I also tried out LFY but it did not agree with my phone. The internest browser is noticably faster. Thanks for the tip on the Slahyer.

    Just my $0.02 here...but what does "excess" mean...what is this new word you speak of....LOL
    J/k...anyway, regarding loading LFY 1.4...no, you don't need to load 1.2 first. Regarding your OC...well, I'm currently using the slahyer 1.2ghz kernel...and with LFY it's smokin!
