should i do this? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1840030
i have flashed my phone 3 times now with the siyah v 5.0.1 now but it still fails reboot. and when i go into cms recovery it says that i still have the old siyah v6.0b5 kernal that i first used.
You cannot flash a kernel via Recovery unless you are properly rooted to begin with. See post #1...
The only way to root your phone is by using Odin on your PC and the steps in posts #1, #2 and #3 of the Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide as I described in my earlier reply to you... which you quote!
You cannot flash a kernel via Recovery until you have correctly rooted your phone first, which was not the case in your post #669.
Upgrading only every six months now it seems. Upgraded to NeatROMLite LSS and Siyah 6.0B4 and it's a great combination.
I found Siyah 6.0B5 didn't go into deep sleep and Dorimanx 8.19 was unstable. NeatROMLite required uninstalling some framework thing from system/app that kept crashing to make it stable.
Now it's all working fine with great battery life using Ironass's STweaks settings - thanks Ironass!
I too have found siyah v6.0 b5 less battery friendly than siyah v6.0 b4.
I'm currently on NeatROM Lite LSW and with siyah v6.0 b5 I was getting max 15/16 hrs at most.
Just reverted back to siyah v6.0b4 and and it's getting better. Gonna wait a couple of days more before deciding anything.
I've always been a siyah fan though.
Agreed avushkaa! :thumbup:
Both Syd and I reckon that the Siyah 6.0b4 is better than the b5.
oh yeah baby, beta 4 is rock solid and in combo with NEAT gave me the best battery ever in my 2 years with the S2
Siyah 6b4 is giving me 2-3% battery drain overnight.
Whereas it was only 1% with Philz.
I think I'm going to flash Philz now.
Anyone still using the Siyah kernels with latest neat rom lite XWMS1 V5.3 ? Im not getting great battery life with philz kernel and am considering going back to Siyah ? any thoughts ?
Try Apolo 4.12 kernel. Siyah project is dead...
Ended up going back to neat rom 5.0 , alls well now .
With 5.3 the phone want going to sleep for some reason and the battery was draining very quickly .
try latest NeatROM 5.5
While what you said sure is true....is it worth the switch? What version are you currently using?
4.13 Regular, got it 2 days ago and testing but for now all ok. check results in antutu:
