    I am currently running the De-sensed DAS_BAMF 1.4 Non-Themed Rom. I would like a few opinions on which kernel I should flash to run quick and smoothly but not kill my battery. I can overclock if need be but its not a must. I know with the rom im supposed to wipe everything but with kernels, its not necessary right?

    Drod 1.8GHz FTW!! Even better battery life than stock and quadrants of 2700+ :)
    No, you don't need to wipe when flashing a kernel.

    I have it at 1804/245 on demand. I also have a screen off profile at 368 min and max on demand (245 took too long to wake up)

    Its a profile(under profile tab in setcpu) that lowers your clock speed down when you have your screen off. This really helps with saving battery life.

    No problem. At the top of SetCPU, you'll see a box that says Profiles. One of your options is Screen Off. That's the min and max speed when your screen is off (and why so many swear by SetCPU). It can make a huge difference in battery life.

    well explained lol...but I will say though, depending on who the kernel is from, sometimes it can be automatically built in to lower the cpu when the screen is off. I believe for adrynalynes newer kernels, this is built in. I had the screen off profile set and I was getting lag while unlocking and the first couple seconds of using my phone. I believe the profile was conflicting with the kernels job to lower the cpu while the screen is off.

    OK cool. With the profile should I have it set at 100 priority or does it matter? Also would there be any reason why I am only getting close to 1300 for cpu in quadrant?

    Agreed! If you're using the smartass (Haha) governor, you don't really need SetCPU

    If that's the only profile you have, priority won't matter.
    For quadrant, set your governor to scale Performance and run it again.

    Some peoples phones just don't run equal... Don't base it off of quadrant scores they aren't always the best. Base it off of how well your phone runs. Some people are getting close to 3000 so,...idk all phones are different that's what makes it great

    you've been....THUNDASTRUCK!
