    Hope the title didn't get you too excited... it's still being worked on, but no kernel is correctly reporting CPU temp at the moment (at least none that I've tested).

    TempMonitor itself will blaze right up just fine when the kernel support is there and show cpu temp as always. Some of P3Droid's kernels now have partial support, but the temperature doesn't update correctly (yet). It is actual CPU temp, not battery, but it locks up and fails to update when temp changes.

    I've seen/heard of TM causing a reboot if used with a 2.2 kernel compiled with old mods. This is not TM, but the mods themselves causing the reboot. If you are a user, and you run into this, please install another kernel. If you are a dev, and run into this... well... everyone else has too... remove the mods and re-compile.

    If anyone has any pertinent info that I'm not privy to, please let me know.

    Side Note: Widgets are still coming... I've been slacking... had to move... swamped etc. Their still in the game plan, before anyone asks.

    Dustin cvpcs has some kernels out right now with working CPU temps. I would link you but I'm on my droid. Jump into their irc #cvpcs for a link to a ton of them. The 1300 is real buggy right now but the 1250 runs great.

    I'm aware of the other driver floating around recently. This is the reason p3 and I are dropping this mod tonight rather than saturday.... It's pretty important to us that the proper driver be compiled with any kernel supporting cpu temp... the driver source itself is also being distributed.

    That's all I can say without stepping on any toes.

    SV = Standard Voltage
    IV = Increased Voltage

    They all should have CPU Temp support.

    This is my first time having CPU temps (rooted for Froyo)

    Should it fluctuate so much? For example, I do a stress test for about 30 seconds and I'm going from 35c to 50c, I stop it and it's back down to 35c in about 5 seconds.
