    From what I'm reading over at the Cyanogen forums, it sounds like SetCPU really isn't needed since all the kernel/governor stuff can be controlled within the Cyanogenmod settings. Do any of you guys feel this is true? I haven't really tried changing much in the performance settings just yet, but I just downloaded a Savage-zen kernel so I am about to go down that path. Should I just uninstall SetCPU and go with the savagezen kernel?

    I noticed my battery will drop from 100 to 90 like a rock, and then stabilize after that.

    I'm running nightly 6 by the way.

    It honestly really isn't, but I still use it to set the CPU really low when the screen is off. Other than that the kernel I'm using is doing a stand up job. Takes me 30 minutes of heavy use to go from 100% to 99%.

    This one - SavagedZen-0.0.7-BFS-HAVS-WiMAX-GB-signed.zip - which I got from here.

    I'm using cfs 0.1.0. Weird. Seems like a crazy big difference.

    Did you set your CPU governor to be SavagedZen in your Cyanogen settings?

    No I just have it on whatever it defaults to. I haven't touched any of the performance in cyanogen settings. I just have SetCPU configured to underclock to 245/245 with the screen off and regular speeds otherwise.

    My scaling in SetCPU is set to ondemand. SavagedZen is an option. But this would be just like changing the settings in the cyanogenmod settings right? The only thing I can see is that SetCPU allows me to underclock with the screen off and I don't think I can make that distinction in the CM settings.

    I set the governor to SavagedZen and it works great. I only use SetCPU to underclock as you do. I just had a 30 minute phone call, and it was still on 100% when the call ended.

    Well I just switched it over so we'll see how it goes. That would really be amazing if I could get that kind of battery life. I have it set to "ondemand" on set CPU and "SavagedZen" in CyanogenMod Settings. I guess I probably should make sure that they both match?

    I have it set to "SavagedZen" in both places my own self. *shrug* Seems to work okay.

    It takes more time then average to connect and sometimes looks like it doesn't connect at all when I click the "Turn on USB storage"

    I also had a reboot when trying, only once though.

    Sigh, to me that sounds more like the dreaded USB port problem than a problem with the ROM. :(

    I am so, so sorry. The first time I flashed Cyanogen, I had the same issue, and thought it was the ROM. Then I noticed the phone would only charge in certain positions, and even then, my PC nor my girlfriend's Mac would see it when plugged into their USB ports. :(

    Ahh I can't find the thread. I just noticed it when I flashed over to the most recent nightly and thought that was it. But now I think you're right.

    Is this setup with the current nightly's? I noticed since the wimax drivers were added battery life has gotten noticably worse, and I'm looking to test out some different kernals but want to break anything...

    Also what is the difference between cfs and bfs.

    I usually flash the kernel after flashing the nightlies, and it's been working 99% fine for me, despite a few random reboots that might as well be the ROM.

    I'm on nightly 8 with no mods (other than cm7 itself of course) currently, and it seems to be running quite flawless, I even noticed the stock sense rom had way more issues, so I even go my wifes phone on nightly's as well, and she seems to be much happier with it as well. Honestly I haven't seen it reboot randomly since nightly 20, but I've stayed stock the whole time and likei said I noticed battery life has gotten pretty bad relatively, and im looking for some improvement...

    But what is the difference between cfs and bfs??

    Honestly? I'm not sure. It was recommended I try one of them to see how stable it was, and if I had problems, try the other one.

    Based on what I read today cfs will generally provide better battery life but ymmv

    It's different with every phone, apparently.

    Correct, so just try everything. I'm having better life with the 0.1.0 SavagedZen CFS kernel now that I uninstalled setCPU. I am just running off the SavagedZen governor in the Cyanogenmod Settings menu.
