    Anyone have any suggestions on a good kernel for battery life? I had my phone plugged into the. AC while listening to i heart radio over bluetooth for a few hours and dropped to 50%. Not to mention the phone was pretty hot. Any good suggestions?

    Every phone reacts differently, you will just have to try one's you are interested in. For example mine will not run any of the ULV kernals, it just boot loops. good luck

    Just FYI, using the interactive governor will drain your battery significantly more quickly than using ondemand. It will perform better but that's because it spends a longer time at higher clock speeds.

    To be honest, I've had mine on interactive and its the best battery life i've had yet on this phone, so YMMV I guess.

    Interesting, I had read a thread somewhere that I can no longer find where the consensus seemed to be that interactive was not yet ready for everyday use due to the hit on battery life. But now after reading around it looks like there's no conclusive evidence either way really, so I apologize for posting questionable info.

    The thread you're probably thinking of is the Overclocking 101 Thread, and they ran OnDemand vs Interactive in an idling test and Interactive used more at the time I think.

    I think you're right. I'd be interested to know whether or not there have been improvements in the governor that would make it viable for day-to-day use. I'm going to try using interactive for a while and see if I notice additional battery drain.

    Don't mean to hijack the thread, I just wish there was more concrete data about interactive and how it compares to ondemand.

    Interactive may drain faster. But when you have results like these on this ROM using CVPCS's kernels, I dont think you could ask for more.

    Which kernels are interactive ones? All on the wiki page? Only the " Increasing" ones?

    "Interactive" is a type of governor, not a type of kernel. I believe all of the CVPCS kernels support it.

    Yes, all kernels from cvpcs should include the interactive governor as an option. Increasing kernels simply increase voltage respective to increases in clock speed. I would basically only use it if I couldn't run the LV kernel.
