    Taz is working on getting the mods adjusted to work with Froyo. As it stands now, the mods aren't working. I'm sorry but I don't have an ETA. Wish I had more info to give you.

    I've downloaded OS monitor from the market, and it's giving me a number that it says is the temp for the battery and cpu (2 separate values). Are these numbers not accurate/correct on Froyo? I just rooted/upgraded mine last week and downloaded OS monitor the day i upgraded.

    Some of p3droid's kernels are partially reporting temperatures, however, while these are actual cpu snapshots, they tend to freeze at some temp and fail to update. This is a problem with the cpu temp mods themselves, and has nothing to do with the stability of the kernel. I am in contact with p3 and other devs and all are aware of the problem.

    Setcpu also shows a temp, but again, fails to update for the same reason. If you watch the reported temp over the course of a day you will see what I mean. Tempmonitor will show the same data in these cases, but again, note that the reading is not updating correctly. This has nothing to do with the apps themselves. A correct temp reading should fluctuate fairly quickly.

    At times, you may notice that after a reboot you will see a -40 reported for cpu temp from other apps, while tempmonitor cancels its notification and does not show data... this is due to a catch I've added to tempmonitor that helps to prevent invalid data from from being displayed.

    Hooray! Been waiting for this for a while. It's always nerve wracking to be playing a flash game and feeling the Droid heat up but not really know how hot it's getting.

    So is this code public so other kernel devs can implement? I tried to send you a msg several times but for some reason it never took ... hopefully you didn't receive all of them!

    me too, running the exact same kernel over Jrummy's Lithium Mod 1.0.12 ROM, both CPU and Bat. temps seem to be reporting accurately.

    Absolutely chevy.. It's source now not later :)

    Feel free to hit up myself or p3... pls find my email on the tm market app screen.

    P3 also had the driver in his github account.

    All that failing you can find it on my home server:

    Downloaded and re-flashed P3's LV 125-1100 kernel. I installed temp monitor, but it keeps telling me its "Showing system stored data, waiting for real-time data." Also, i'm still only showing the battery temp. Any suggestions? This is the full $1.99 version btw.

    Update: Just had to check show CPU temp in program settings. Showing two different temperatures, looks like all is working well!
