    I had Slayher 1.2 V1.6 on UD 2.5 but recently went back to UD 2.3 as it was Flawless for me - I stuck with the same kernel 1.2 V1.6

    I'm using stock. I really found no appreciable difference. Actually, installing Slayher and comp cache I experienced a little bit of lag swiping screens. The stock kernel with Setcpu at 800mhz is silky smooth for me. Multitasking/switching apps is also very smooth, and battery life is outstanding. I'm giving up on kernel swaps. UD stock kernel works just fine. :)

    Stock @ 800 is as good on mine as any other. I even run at 600 most of the time.

    Im done with kernel swapping too.

    I love Chevy Kernels. Using the 1100MHz ULV kernel right now - blazing fast, stays cool, good battery life. I just wish Chevy would add compcache.

    Slayher's have always been super laggy and super hot on my phone.

    Chevy's have always given me the best quadrant scores but get a little hot.

    P3Droid's are top in my book: Give me only marginally worse quadrants than chevy's and stay so cool it's unbelievable. Compcache also works, I'm rocking the LV 250-1250 and have been since UD 2.3. I have had some success with the 125-1250 kernel but have a little trouble with LaucherPro dying while coming out of sleep.Check them out here

    If you scroll all the way to the bottom of that page you will find the "ramzswap.zip" file that you need for compcache, install just like the slayher directions and enjoy.

    It's really hard to get good kernel suggestions as each kernel will work differently on different phones. My only advice is to download a bunch and try and see which one works best on YOUR phone from the best in terms of battery/stability/speed.

    I used to use the Chevy 1.0ghz ULV kernel, but found out my issues with LauncherPro are resolved by using compcache, which unfortunately, Chevy is lacking.

    In my quest for compcache, all original Slayher kernels hated my phone, but the 1.0ghz Slayher LFY was acceptable.

    Still, Slayher had higher heat and lower battery life than I was comfortable with, so I moved over to P3Droid 1.0ghz LV with compcache (ramswap) and have been loving it.

    I think you can load the ramswap zip at the bottom of p3's page to enable compcache. Also if you remove all your other launchers including the stock one you get less redraws. I did that & took my home screen count from 7 to 1 & I've never been happier.

    I can agree with this. I've done some testing using Powertutor and BatteryDog to get some facts behind my assumptions, and man can I tell you that there is no solid answer. Depending on what version of what rom I'm running, different kernal's really have affected my phone differently. With Miui 12.3 Slayer LFY was kickass. But UD 2.4 sucked with the same kernal. And now Miui 12.11 is horrible with the same kernal. I'm talking up to 8-10 hours difference, with similar usage. UD 2.5 and P3droid's low voltage kernal actually seem to mesh really well on my phone. But Sapphire was pretty bad with P3droid's kernals on my phone so..... I dunno man. It's weird because I've seen post after post of people reporting the exact opposite of what I've experienced, as well as people posting confirmation that they've gotten the same mileage as me.

    Best I can say is test them all! They're all written by extremely intelligent and capable people, just gotta find the one that meshes with what you got running.

    I agree. its painless to flash roms, just go on your cpu, dl a bunch of em and put em on your sd then its mad easy to test and change and test rather then just dling em one at a time.
