    I have not made any changes to the kernels myself; this is just an updated pull from android.git.kernel.org Git. As you know changes happen there from other contributors, and I want you all to have the latest and greatest. Let me know if you have any issues with them!

    I like to know as well. Also, what's the difference between interactive and on demand? Can SetCPU use the interactive governor?
    Thanks,

    Interactive is a modified performance setting. It ramps your CPU up to max at the slightest hint of demand and then sits there, very slowly creeping downwards.

    As opposed to On Demand wherein it scales to load and then clocks down again very quickly.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/47871-overclocking-101-a.html

    It's kind of buried, but it's in there. He says it's not good for battery life, heat, etc, and a few people have backed him up in there.

    Setcpu has the interactive feature. ...yes.

    Dont know exactly what it does cause ive not searched for info on it.

    I can confirm it is an option in the menu for setcpu though.


    ON that topic, does anyone have any suggestions for profile settings? which ones should be on demand and which ones should be interactive?

    Interactive setting on main seems faster responding than on demand.

    Love the new kernels. I can confirm that the interactive setting sucks the juice right out of my phone. But it does make the phone super responsive.

    First flash and I have to call no-joy. Boot-looped on the M. Since the 1.1GHz ULV kernel is my go-to kernel, I was surprised.

    I'm going to try again after making sure my battery is as close to 100% as possible, and redownload it, just to rule out the possibility of a bad flash/file. I'll repost with the results from that.

    sorry fur! im running the 1.25 ulv now... runs just as cool and 1700 on my third quadrent (1530 on the first)

    interestingly enough in another thread chevy said he only uses the lv not his ulv...do you know what gives?

    also did you get the ss? it is simply stunning!

    Don't know if this is the case for Chevy's phone or not, but if your phone doesn't agree with the ulow voltage it will work harder and therefore get hotter and drain your battery faster then even the medium voltage would. Just a trial and error thing.

    damn! ulv 1.2, my go-to kernel is overheating, as did ulv 1.25. the 1.25 did when i was using gps, and the 1.2 did on the quadrant. trying lv now

    update...lv while doing a quadrant test just rebooted out of no where. back to ulv 1.2.

    are the old kernels still out there?

    Yeah, they're still in the original place. It wouldn't be Chevy quality if he just tossed it out there without testing! :)

    In the past I used 1.0ghz low voltage, but downloading the new kernals at the same speed and voltage boot loops. Is this normal?

    I'm wondering if I should just stick with the old kernals?

    Edit

    Just tried 1.0ghz on med, boot looped. :(
