    Hey guys I'm at work and just spent about 40 mins searching for Koush's anyrom.zip kernels to use with my BB.V.04 as stated by pete. I want to upgrade to 1ghz and i can't find them.

    All i can find is Chevy's ULV nd LV kernels, but no Koush's. I don't care which kernel i use as long as it doesn't give me problems with Petes BBv.04 froyo 2.2.

    I've read a few people had issues when applying the chevy's LV kernels so i wanted to skip that kernel. Can someone re-direct me to the proper kernels I should use with my built? Thank you so much!

    If your phone can run them I'd advise the ULV ones. Otherwise the rest of his kernals are rock solid

    Index of /froyo/4.3/kernels

    These ones are updated. He re-did them all, very good

    The problem I had with Chevy's kernels was with the ulv. The lv one's work fine on v0.4. I am now, and have been for a long while, using P3Droid's 1.25Ghz kernel.

    if you're trying to use the built in tethering programs, thats a Froyo problem and not a BB problem. the built in programs take you to a VZW site or something...

    As far as kernels go, my phone is running a 1ghz ULV kernel from Chevy and my battery life has gone through the roof. Coincidence, maybe, but I'm still giving the credit to the kernel.

    Question, LowV i'm assuming low voltage right? MediumV medium and Ultra Low? Is the lower the slower ? Also the lower the less battery it uses i'm assuming right ? Can someone explain to me how it works so I can download the one that best fits my needs? Thank you.

    Oh I missed read that, I thought he meant WiFi in general not the tether, just normal wifi. Thanks.

    I'm trying to use the wireless tether application from the market, and my laptop can connect to it, I just can't get any data through...tried with my gf's ipad and the same thing happens.

    I heard it was because of the lower voltage of the kernels, but what do I know? :) Maybe I should try one of the P3 kernels???

    What is the difference between Low voltage and Medium voltage and ULOW?

    Ultra low
    Low
    Med

    refers to voltage used so power/battery life also lower heat, not speed. Lowervoltage does NOT mean lower speed

    1.25Ghz has slots fo 1.25,1.1ghz,800,700,600,550,250 (i think those are the slots) and lower speeds just have a lower max.

    although some phones due to hardware differences just can't run some ulv or lv kernals, it's the phone not the kernal or rom.

    Ah, I haven't read about any problems with tethering caused by his kernels; then again, I never have a need to tether, so its probably something I don't pay attention to.

    I am using jdlfg's 7 slot 1 Ghz froyo kernels on BB.V.04 and I have yet to see the same performance, battery life, and low temps on any other kernel. I haven't tried chevy's new ULV 1 Ghz froyo kernels but if anyone who has used jdlfg's kernel and switched to chevy's ULV could tell me if they noticed a difference (good or bad), I would greatly appreciate it. =D

    use p3 droid kernels you get insane battery life, well insane for running at 1.2 ghz anyways. Their great because the lowest slot is 125 rather than 250. This kernel with setcpu gives me a full day of battery life.

    Now that Froyo seems to be able to handle 125Mhz coming out of sleep/standby, that's the only thing missing from Chevy's (at least to try)

    with moderate use (a lot of texting, some wifi and 3G use through browser/facebook/twitter/etc, brightness turned all the way down unless I'm outside), I got almost two full days out of my stock Droid battery. and only half of that was with data turned off (since I realized that you can turn data completely off when you aren't using it with Froyo). Hoping to repeat that today and tomorrow. We'll see.

    where are the p3 kernals located in rom manager. I usually just download a kernal and install.

    You don't need to use chevy, P3 Kernels works just fine.
