    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.
