Motorola Droid :: Kernals And Roms

Jul 28, 2010

I just got my droid (ONLY the droid, no battery, backplate, or charger) lol. I know irritating right. Well since I have a couple days before everything comes that I need, i am contemplating on which ROM to put on it. I have done some reading and seems that the majority of people are happy with BB (right?)

But my question is:
What about Kernals? I have heard to flash new Kernals for overclocking and such, but should I flash a different Kernal or do the ROMS already have the fastest Kernal installed on them? Not sure if this question makes sense, but I'm just trying to get the fastest ROM & Kernal available for my Droid.

Motorola Droid :: Flashing Different ROMs - Kernals Onto Phone

Jul 25, 2010

I just put Froyo 2.2 on my Moto Droid using this ROM:

And I used the 800mHz kernal found here:

How To: Get Android 2.2 (Froyo) On Your Motorola Droid Right Now! | TheUnlockr

I am experiancing a few freezing problems and bad start ups, but I am assuming these kind of surprises come with flashing different ROMs/kernals onto your phone. I noticed, however, that occasionally my screen will get really "twitchy" e.g. when I press a key on the android on screen keyboard it types the letter 4 times. or when i drag the notifications bar down half way and keep my finger still i can see the bar twitch up and down rapidly. I have heard from several review sites that twitchiness and stuttering usually have to do with the processing, which made me think of the kernal change. Does this mean i picked a bad kernal or a bad speed? If i get this twitching does it mean get a faster kernal or a slower kernal?

HTC Incredible :: Radios / Kernals / ROMs And Boot Loaders

Aug 5, 2010

I ask for some clarification on ROMs, radios, bootloaders and kernals.I am currently running a rooted stock incredible. I want to try CM6, the 2.2 leak, and the 2.2 lite or Sky Raider. I know there are issues with having the right radio and kernal with all these. If I understand it right, the stock kernal will work with all of them. If I wan't to try another kernal I would be limited to kernals made to get along with those specific roms. Is this correct?I have the 1.x radio right now, which will work with CM6 right? If I go to the 2.2 leak it will upgrade it to 2.x, which will work with 2.2 lite or Sky Raider. However I am I right in thinking to go back to CM6 or stock from 2.2 leak I will have to downgrade the radio? Also, I will have to downgrade the bootloader as well?Whew, this is all so confusing.

Motorola Droid :: Different Kernals

Jul 5, 2010

ok so i get that everyone's phone reacts differently to different kernals. but what i'd like to know is what if i got a kernal that yields great results as far as performance, but drains the battery to quickly? im using chevy's ulv 1.25. will using set cpu to scale it back to 1.1 be as beneficial as using a new 1.1 kernal?

Motorola Droid :: How To Uninstall Kernals

Jun 17, 2010

I recently installed one of Chevy's low voltage kernels a few days ago and have since experience extremely laggy performance, random reboots, and terrible battery life compare to what I used to get before I installed it. And most of that stuff has been happening even when I have it maxed at 550. How do I go about uninstalling this kernel?

Motorola Droid :: How To Overclock Kernals Actually Reach Their Max Speed

Feb 24, 2010

I was wondering how they actually reach their max speed? If you have a kernal that has 250, 600, 800, 1000, 1200. Does it start at 250 then go 600, 800, 1000, then finally hit 1200? Or does it jump to the necessary speed that your using (like start at 250 then it could go to 1000 then 1200)? Because if it has to go through each speed to get to its max, then a kernal with 5 different ones would be much better than 10 wouldn't it? I've never seen this question asked before, so does anyone know how they actually get up to their max?

Just so everyone knows I'm rooted and running overclock of 1200.. I have it set up. Just want to know how it works.

Motorola Droid :: 2.1 ROMs And 2.0.1 ROMs

Mar 7, 2010

Maybe i'm not really seeing anything that stick out to me but could someone please give me an answer.

Whats the difference between a 2.0.1 ROM and 2.1 ROM?

I've been rooted for awhile and always stuck with either AdamZ ROM or Pete's Bugless Beast and they were all based off of 2.0.1. Is there something special I need to do in order to run a ROM based off of 2.1?

Motorola Droid :: Too Many ROMS

Jun 13, 2010

I've had my Droid since February and have it rooted. I've been using Smoked Glass v6.0.1 ROM and now I'm ready to change things up. I have ROM manager premium but I'm too overwhelmed by all the choices. I've been trying to research the different ROMs out there but there are too many.

Can we make a list here of what ROMs do what? For instance I've read Bugless Beast is great for speed but Ultimate Droid is better if you want looks and don't care about speed. Don't even get me started on CyanogenMod. There are way to many options with that one.

Motorola Droid :: Roms

Mar 22, 2010

In here you can put what rom you are running and all the info, OC range kernels all that, and a screen shot of the main home screen. and you can discuss on which one is better. what one has that the other doesn't and etc.... i like talking about all that for some reason.

I'm running CYANOGEN MOD 5.0.5 W/ 24K THEME AND OC RANGE OF 1000-800MHZ. I have in the past run simmply stunning and smoked glass and droid mod and the desire build roms. i find cyanogen to be the smoothest and most customizable to me. I also like the updater its all very easy to use.
cons: i dont like clockwork recovery, im use to SPRecovery.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting 2.1 ROMS

Feb 18, 2010

I'm rooted, and swap roms, backup everything pretty confidently (thanks again to Joe for helping me get in the pool).

But there are some things I don't understand. I really want to go to a 2.1 ROM. I've tried a few with verying degrees of happyness, and some of the later ones I've tried just send me through enless reboot cycles. I've tried Pete's new one (figuring if anybody put out something dependable it would be him) and though it boots up FAST and runs great, after playing around for a while it sends me through reboot cycles and freezes up.

I always follow all instructions to the "T", so it makes no sense that others are having success when I am not. Is there some other process that I have to go through that are just unspoken "common sense" steps among the more advanced users that aren't outlined in install instructions? Or am I just supposed to let the phone do it's thing for a while after installing? It just makes me nervouse when it is looping through 3-5 reboots in a row.
