    Anyone have any good working profile setups to share? i have 1ghz installed. Is your battery life better? is it running hot? i know some settings if not adjusted correctly can make the phone not wake up to answer calls, etc. i know theres a bunch of threads on profiles, but some arent for froyo and/or CM6

    That thread you referenced will pretty much give you all the information you need to answer your question. There was a bit of discussion about exactly what you're asking around pages 15-18.

    I'm running a P3 1200MHz LV kernel with CM6 RC1.

    Here's the profiles I went with:
    Profile Name (Priority)
    Main - 400mhz min - 1200MHz max, ondemand
    Screen Off (100) 125 - 400, conservative
    CPU > 40C (95) 125 - 400, conservative
    Temp > 40C (95) 125 - 400, conservative
    Battery < 30% (75) 125 - 550, conservative
    Battery < 40% (70) 125 - 850, conservative

    I'm getting very good performance and at least a day and a half battery life with these settings. I originally had the Screen Off set to 125MHz min and max, but found some background tasks would take too long and the phone wasn't as responsive coming out of sleep in those cases.

    What's the difference between ondemand, conservative, and the other options?

    As far as I understand them, they go something like this:

    Ondemand - Default; scales the CPU as needed between min and max.
    Conservative - Scales the CPU between min and max, but is slower to increase clockspeed than the ondemand - potentially better battery life, but perhaps lower responsiveness.
    Powersave - Keeps the CPU at min clock.
    Performance - Keeps the CPU at max clock.
    Userspace - Useless.

    i have jdlfg 1GHz kernel. the lowest it goes is 300. from what ive read, every phone is different and you basically have to find one that works well with your phone. i also read that P3 kernels usually give long battery life, while chevy ones have better speed. But with the jdlfg kernel im pretty sure i got a day from it. i tried using battery left widget, but after calibrating it gave some crazy number like 59310:13

    im not an expert on setcpu yet, but going off some of others my settings right now are:

    Screen off: 300/300 ondemand 100
    Temp >51.3: 300/500 ondemand 96
    Charging USB/Full: 300/800 ondemand 95
    Charging/Full: 300/800 ondemand 81
    Charging AC/Full: 300/800 ondemand 80
    Battery < 20% 300/500 ondemand 75
    Battery < 31% 300/500 ondemand 70
    Battery < 40% 300/800 ondemand 66

    i might end up trying P3 soon
