    The last time i ran one of the ulowv kernels it actually seemed to drain my battery faster than the lowv version, is that even possible? i going to run a UlowV one again tonight to see what happens.

    Yes, it is possible - if your phone doesn't like it, it may end up working harder ...

    It has to do with failed read/writes of the on board memory. The ECC is constantly monitoring for this situation. If it finds bad read/writes, it will constantly correct and you will notice three things based on severity. Heat, lag, and battery life.

    Sure, not all CPU are made 100% alike and you could just have one of those CPU that perform better with more voltage. For instance I tried all the ulv kernels and it kept causing my video camera recordings to freeze within a minute of recording forcing me to close the app. Once I changed to a lv kernel, the problem disappeared because I'm no longer starving my phone of the necessary voltage required to run the video camera app.

    Check out this thread up above from Skull One.

    I can vouch for this. Suprisingly enough I am noticing 20 to 30% more battery life
    using the ULV 1.25 Kernal than the ULV 1.2 Kernal.

    At work battery life is one of my main requirements so typically i never run my ph faster than 0.8ghz...& the ulv kernel i tried before was the 0.8ghz one, but since i will be home today (so i can charge as needed) i just dropped in the ulv 1.25 kernel just to see what happens.

    I am trying a few different kernels ranging from p3 to chevy and slayher. So far the 1.0 ulv from chevy seems to be giving me the least amount of grief. I will see if I can post some actual data in a few days.

    I find myself swapping kernels much more often than even roms...I still have not found one im overall happy with 100% giving me an equal balance of speed & battery life, right now im running jdlfg 1.266 kernel & its one of the snappiest by far.

    You should be able to download and install anywhere. I do.

    I don't even make a nandroid.
    I use the clockwork path/directory to the download folder on the sdcard and install. If it bootloops hold x and install a different kernal.
    Simple as that.
