    Sooooo, any plans to support other kernels, like Chevys perhaps? I miss my ulv.
    Every time i flash anything pretty much other than Slayhers kernels i get a bootloop. Any fixes, workarounds, or suggestions for another ulv kernel that WILL work with this rom?

    I love the rom, but im using Slayhers 1ghz 1.6 kernel (which appears to be the only one that doesnt cause a bootloop) and my phone was dead by lunch. With pretty much no use either. (thats 4ish hours of sitting idle in my pocket with wifi off and 3g on) Normally i have around 80-90% by the time schools over. It was completely dead by then. And i even had setCPU set up to under-clock to 250mhz on sleep! Whats the deal?

    Just flashed a Sapphire kernel to CM 6.1 RC3 and seems to be working fine so far. Cleared just cache in clockworkmod before flashing it. No bootloop.

    Sapphire kernels:

    Update: well maybe not. when I turned on wifi via the power control it rebooted and now may be stuck in a boot loop. lol

    The only kernal that i have been able to get to work for me are slayhers, which is an issue most people seem to be having. I tried 1.2lv chevy kernal on rc2 and rc3 and it didnt work for me :(. maybe ill try the ulv to see if that works

    would be nice to use other kernals for my phone though, im a fans of chevys as well.

    I have a hunch that they arent working properly because the android version is 2.2.1. I could be wrong but kernels seem to be version specific, as there are eclair kernels and froyo ones.

    I tried flashing one of chevy's to Sapphire 1.1.1 and it bootlooped.

    Restoring CM 6.1 RC3 w/stock kernel clockworkmod backup now. Might try one of P3Droid's next flashed to CM 6.1 RC3:

    P3Droid Kernels

    Update: installed P3Droid 900lv kernel from link above for Android 2.2 and works so far. WIFI turned on from Power Control in CM no problem. I don't use comcache so I don't care if it works. Just looking to see how battery life is using another kernel and overclock a bit more.

    I ran the 8-1 ULV 1.1 kernel with every CM build I've flashed up till I tried the RC-2. It's not 2.2.1, it's all the added stuff or possibly an even lower voltage in the LV/ULV.

    SlayHer 1.6 LV1.1GHz kernel runs on mine, but it heats up faster and the battery discharges slightly faster.

    However, compcache is the tradeoff. For the moment I can live with it.

    furbearingmammal seems to like it :) comcache slowed my phone down after a few days when I used it on Sapphire which required a reboot to get things running ok again.

    Sapphire 900lv kernel started bootlooping after turning on WIFI for me. Same exact kernel I ran with my phone and Sapphire 1.x.x for months.
