Since I am just an average Joe with all this android stuff I didn't wanna get to deep in the process of rooting my phone so I went with Unrevoked3, now since their claiming you can flash custom ROMs I was wondering if anyone knows how to accomplish this in a safe and easy way.
What is the best way to overclock Fresh 2.3.3? I am just looking for something I can flash once and be done with it. Want it to make the phone faster and get better battery life. Is 710 kernel/OC Widget combo best? Looking for links... Thanks! looking for something like gumbo custom kernel...
if there is one, to a kernel that includes the FPS fix and overclocking for 2.2? I installed the Ava release, and XDA is saying that the [Kernel]netarchy-toastmod, FPS 'fix' for Epson + Nova, now with hdmi - Version 3.7.5 - xda-developers is not supported on 2.2.
Issue is that I freeze at any speed over 604 max (via Setcpu). Tried setting higher speeds as a charge profile to see if being triggered would change yet didn't. I have done nothing with advanced menu as I have found nothing posted referencing it netting higher speeds. I am rooted, started with zanfur kernel, switched to a conap kernel (bfsv6), both with same results. Did dalvik wipe (i am running amon ra) then went back to zanfur kernel to try again, same results. What am I missing? If this is just equipment limit then what's the result of flashing a custom Rom with default clocks of 710+++?
So, I've just installed the two Hyra kernels and after checking the "about phone" section, I see the undervolt kernel has been installed. Now I've got a couple of questions.. 1. How do I know the overclock kernel was also installed? 2. Are there any settings or anything I need to turn the kernel "on" or is it automatic?
I installed ICS on my Transformer TF101 and I was thinking to overclock it. Now i saw some thread already on this forum about it, but it was talking about the Transformer Prime (TF201) is there any overclocking kernel for the transformer on ice cream sandwich?
I recently rooted my Evo using UnRevoked 3.2 and flashed Fresh 3.3 on it. I'm generally happy with the results, the upgrade seemed to fix some problems with random reboots and screen locks I was having on stock (I'm thinking that moving a lot of apps to SD may have helped, as I seemed to be always low on memory).
In any case, I do think the phone is a bit "laggy" after the update. I downloaded FPS2D and checked my FPS, seem to average right around 50fps with std dev of 9. It seems like many people are getting much better screen performance using the custom netarchy 4.1.9 kernel. I'd like to give that a try but I have a couple of basic questions...
1. I will do a nandroid backup and Titanium before I flash, but I noticed that restoring apps last time was a drag...I use FolderOrganizer and it's a pain to get them all set up the way I had them. Does flashing the kernel wipe your phone clean? How much app/Sense restoring would I have to do assuming all goes well? I'm assuming that flashing the kernel has little to no effect on installed apps or Sense screen layouts...he cried hopefully...
2. I'm assuming here that Fresh 3.3 is compatible with netarchy 4.1.9, correct? Also, I saw an indication that netarchy 5.0 may be around the corner...is it better to wait? Or is reflashing a kernel that easy so there's no reason to wait?
3. It looks like an overclocking app is included in the netarchy kernel? Is it necessary to tweak the profiles, and if so what are the recommended tweaks for best performance? I have some experience with this coming from an overclocked Palm Pre, but I care a lot more about my Evo...I don't want to hurt it!
4. Battery performance is less of a concern than screen performance for me...I have chargers everywhere. Still, I'd like to get the best battery performance I can. I believe there may be "rogue" services on my phone that are eating up the battery (for example, I use Exchange ActiveSync and I turned it off recently because sync problems were causing it to stay on in the background). What's a good way (or app) to identify rogue apps/services and kill them?
I am about to send word to a few evo owning friends to get the update and what it includes and want to know whether I should tell them it includes the big battery saving kernel flipz included in fresh 3.2
I installed the latest version of fresh last week and im loving it... My battery life is amazing now. I was just wondering if there is a big difference in performance between Fresh with the stock kernel & fresh with a custom. Did i half-ass it by only installing the new rom with no kernel? what about that set cpu app that people were using with unrevocked when the evo came out... Anyone using that still with their custom roms or is it unnecessary?
I just installed the netarchy kekrnel 18.104.22.168 w/HAVS and immediately I started to lose about 4% battery in about 15 minutes or less. Mostly idle too. Used netarchy-toastmod-22.214.171.124-havs-fresh-compatible-signed
The performance is wonderful with the fps unlock, but still the loss is insane.
I cleared my cache and dalvak cache prior to flashing the kernel.
Ive flashed with Fresh 2.1.1 and installed Systray monitor and off the bat the RAM memory was around 30 megs and otherwise performance was slower than what i was used to. I can tell its same or slightly faster than stock 1.5, but its way slower than Gumbo Kernel optimizations on fresh 1.1 When i reflashed fresh 1.1 and gumbo kernel, the available RAM went up to 86 megs and the phone became faster and usefull again.
Im afraid even when the official updates comes along, I wont be able to use it because I got used to Gumbo's speed. What are your opinions and pointers for Gumbo-like optimization of 2.1 roms?
So after a long debate of "to root" or "not to root", i decided to go ahead and root. I chose to manually root just so i could have the satisfaction of doing it myself.
I flashed Fresh 1.1 and Gumbo Kernel and LOVE the speed and the snappiness. But after a while i have been seeing some major issues.
1. Handcent does not seem to work. Everytime i get a message it either freezes up or it just automatically reboots. I just un-installed handcent and have been using the stock message app which is totally fine.
2. My phone randomly reboots to the Fresh screen.
3. NOW HERE LIES THE MAJOR PROBLEM. I try to open my browser and it says that "This applications requires network access. Enable mobile network or Wi-Fi to download data" Press "Settings" or "Cancel" First of all, my mobile network IS turned on. So i press cancel instead, and when i do, the page continues to load like normal. So i can surf the web, and everytime that box pops up, i press cancel, and i continue browsing with no problems. Now on occasion, i can open up the browser and not even get the pop-up box. So i have noticed that on the top of the screen next to where the time is on the upper right hand corner there's and icon that seems to appear when the network works fine and disappears when the network doesn't work. Now when i go to Settings>Wireless controls>Mobile Network it says, "Standby for connecting to mobile network". and when it works fine it just says, "Connected."
Why is my mobile network continuously going in and out of service?
I installed Fresh 3.2 and have used both netarchy-toasted and kings #8 (and9) kernels. With both combinations I've noticed that my battery drops 10-13% over night while i'm sleeping. I looked at Spare Parts and SystemPanel and nothing stands out, no app or service is taking over during that time. I did not have these problems when I was on the stock 2.2 unrooted setup.
I followed all the steps from [Guide] Root/ROM FAQ/Tutorial and installed Fresh. However, when the phone comes up everything is [OK] but in the bottom Initialize Fresh Rom [Wait] flashing.It keep on rebooting and comes to same point for past 30 minutes.Did I messed the rooting part or ROM installed?Is there anything can be done here? or do I wait?
