    I believe this is based off P3Droid's kernels, but I could be wrong. It is a very low voltage kernel apparently because it even gives me occassional reboots but the smartass governor is a nice addition. It basically will scale down your cpu when the screen is off without having to use any profiles in SetCPU. Check out the Overclocking 101 thread for more information regarding the governor.

    But I get GREAT performance and snappiness out of this with it set on Smartass or Interactive. I do get some reboots rarely though when I overload my phone which is rare. I also have a phone that can handle low voltages relatively friendly.

    I forgot where I even found this kernel but was somewhere in his section of the forums...and was buried within an unrelated thread. Please direct any further questions to him.

    Edit: CPU temperature monitoring is not enabled by default. To enable, run the following from a terminal app

    Code:
    su
    insmod /system/lib/modules/omap34xx_temp.ko
    
    Or you can attach the insmod /system/lib/modules/omap34xx_temp.ko in one of your startup scripts in /system/etc/init.d/

    Awesome! I couldn't remember for the life of me where I found that and if it was even from DF. :)

    Are you able to measure the cpu temperature with the stock kernel? It seems to be a very snappy kernel!

    no temps

    just battry temsp the stock kernel for 1.x and is a basic source kernel that runs well is snappy but few options and few governors but also has great battery life. there is nto a kernel i know of that runs on these customs roms thta doesnt run on sourcery. speeds and stability depend on your phone of course.
    wait till tommorow and see if we dont please you :)

    Oh I really do like the smooth functionality of this rom. It is very snappy and responsive. It has minimal lag when transitioning between screens. This is the best rom I have run so far. But as I was typing this the cpu overheated and it locked up for about 30 seconds then came back. I would like to set a profile in set cpu to clock the cpu down when it gets hot.

    ok ?

    Im taking it your talking about the other kernel that was linked.

    Since you are right the stock kernel does not support temp monitoring. I have kept the same kernel as stock for 2.0 (although other options available :) ) due to its stability and low temps.

    If you are talking about our stock kernel overheating at a max of 800mhz while typing a message than id be looking for a different kernel or a new phone :)

    I looked at the time at frequency info in set cpu and it was spending too much time at 800 mhz, so I turned up the up threshold. It seemed to have fixed the issues. This really is a great rom.

    using p3 kernel and can set a profile dependent on cpu temp (battery temp too) if needed.
    have not needed to do it but its there.

    Does the slayer kernel installer within sourcery work? I gave it a try and it didn't seem to work. I wasn't sure if these are stock slayher kernels or if they are customized for this rom. If they are just his standard 1.6 kernels ill use rom manager. Thanks for all the responses.

    The rMoD kernels are running rock solid on this ROM. Running Stability Test using rMoD's 1100 juiced kernel and had no issues. Tried the 1250 juiced but no matter what ROM I've ran it in then it is just too unstable for my Droid. These kernels are apparently very low voltage compared to other kernels. Maybe I'll give Chevy's 1250 a shot on this ROM later today.
