    You need a kernel to take full advantage of it

    even if i want to underclock

    Rxpert83 Dr. Feelgood

    I'm not sure if the stock one supports under clock.

    I'd suggest a custom kernel either way :p

    I would go with the anthrax kernel if you want performance increases, or underworld if you want better battery life

    Kernels are different for everyone.

    I gave you some suggestions, flash them and try each out.

    Kernels vary with different phones.
    You want performance?--Anthrax
    You want battery life?--Underworld
    What works for me, may not work for you as kernels play differently with different phones......try it, flash it, let it settle for 3 days and then judge it.
    You will not lose your hotspot app:D
     
  18. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    ok for any kernel you need ti give a few days to let it settle in before making a change to a different kernel.

    and it is not the rom that drains the battery, it will most likely be your kernel.

    here is some reading for you:
    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/389360-kernels-dummies.html

    and you will need setcpu to control the kernel:

    here is the link for anthrax:

    edit: i merged your other thread here as it more pertains to this thread.

    I would also added that true battery drain is often caused by poor setup. Like how many things do you have setup to sync in the background? Are you leaving 4g or wifi on when you're not using them? Like if I'm at work where I don't have wifi I turn it of so it's not searching for a wifi signal all day long. Try turning off 3g when you're not using it also. You can still get texts and voicemails with your data disabled.

    These kinds of things are more important for achieving good battery life than any kernel ever will be.

    I would try the sbcnohavs.zip.
    viper mod will be needed to change stock voltages if necessary but I dont mess with that at all.
    There are other apps such as system tuner or Incredicontrol to change voltages if you desire.

    Just download to computer and transfer to sd card.
    Boot into recovery.
    Wipe cache and dalvik cache.
    Flash kernel.
    Wipe cache and dalvik cache again (I do, some dont)
    Reboot.
