BFS - Brain F*ck Scheduler and CFS - Completely Fair Scheduler

Love BFS name by the way. :hee:

On BFS...here is more info on the scheduler itself. Basically it's how the device handles how things are running...I believe.

I swear it seems like I'm the only here who doesn't run Fresh.

It would be nice to see some variety people! =P

I've debated on loading CM6...just need to find the time to go through the whole setup process. That's the biggest problem with switching ROMS. All the setup after flashing.

I want to try CM6 but not until this is fixed:
Known Issues:
* No 4G, FM radio, or HDMI yet.

No 4G in my area...I wish. :rolleyes:

FM radio...don't use and same with HDMI.

It's the whole setup of apps, homescreen, and everything else that takes so long. Even using Titanium backup it still take several hours to get it the way I want.

^^^^^ If you're not upgrading from Fresh to Fresh.. it takes forever to load up. I've nandroided and loaded CM6, EViO, Baked Snack and 1 more I can't remember but I always restore my nandroid of Fresh because it just has everything I need and everything is already setup.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of those ROMs ( well for 3 of them you have to like Sense ^.~ ). They all ran really smooth and EViO was just blazing fast.

I think if CM6 fixes the 4G issue I'll probably switch. I can live without the HDMI and FM radio.

Also on a side note, I'm getting some insane battery life on 3.3.0.1 Fresh. 33 hours off the charger and I'm at 35% battery. Granted I haven't used it much except for texts & email & browsing ( like 5 hours awake time ). I never squeezed this much out of my battery before on any custom kernel prior to the latest ota with similar use.

I installed netarchy's latest kernel. Battery life hasn't been as good as it was on Fresh 3.3.0.1. I may reflash if it doesn't improve.

If going back to Fresh, I would definitely go the nandroid backup route.

If you wanna go back to stock kernel without restoring the nandroid there is a link to the stock kernel in this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=789493

I haven't tested it myself yet though so don't delete your nandroid backup just yet.

If I just reflash Fresh's ROM it will install the kernel that came with his ROM. That's the easiest way.

I guess that is the easiest way. I had to use a stock kernel flash when I was messing with kernels otherwise my theme & battery mod would get overwritten and I'd have to do those all over again.

boomhower 09-29-2010 04:16 PM

I am back on CM again. The latest fresh killed my battery life. I am now on CM6 with Snap 7.6 kernal. I had some trouble getting texts but reflashing fixed that. As far as set-up, use titanium back-up and you will be up and running in five minutes.

I flashed Virusrom AirBouRne RC1.1 and was happy with it until it started randomly rebooting on me. I might try out Vaelpak next or maybe even CM6 using google for my voicemail needs.

pad191 09-30-2010 06:55 PM

After restoring my nandroid after getting stuck on netarchy's kernel, I've seen some amazing battery life today. I can't wait to see the new kernels based on the updated HTC ones because there was definitely significant improvements in the phone. So much so that stock kernel runs better than custom kernels based on the old one imo.

phynal 09-30-2010 07:11 PM

I use cm6 nightlys as my daily drivers, the newest, at the time of this post, is 9/30/10 it's the new froyo version 2.2.1. I have no 4G in my area, and the HDMI out is nearly useless. The other plus with cm6 is, that you can use a Wii controller to play snes or nes etc. games. It's not possible with any sense roms, they have a different stack of bluetooth drivers.

Beer Abuser 09-30-2010 08:00 PM

Interesting, I thought you could the Wii hack with any sense rom...I might have to give it a spin.

pad191 09-30-2010 09:07 PM

Ok, after reading the thread over at xda, people have said some good things about King's #10 CFS kernel, especially with Fresh 3.3. I don't think it's based off the new HTC kernel, but I figured I'd give it a shot. First I did a nandroid backup, then wiped cache/davlink twice, battery stats once, and installed the kernel.

Results:

FPS - 52, Stdev = 2.71
Linpack - 36.5 MFLOPS avg
Quadrant - 1306

This was done running overclocked at 1152 using SetCPU. Will test battery life tomorrow as compared to stock kernel on Fresh. So far feels smoother than the netarchy kernel, but not as smooth as stock fresh (measured purely in flipping through home screens).

I was debating on turning SetCPU back on with King's CFS #10 kernel. I just flashed that yesterday because I was disappointed in the battery drain with Netarchy's 4.19.1 kernel with Fresh 3.3.0.1. I wasn't even use SetCPU to overclock with Netarchy.

So far King's has seemed a little better. Glad he is getting his EVO soon...hoping for even better things to come. I seem to like his kernels better than Netarchy's lately.

I dumped Netachy's kernel as well. Battery drain was noticeable. I went back to the latest stock kernel. All is well.

pad191 10-01-2010 10:12 PM

I agree, noticed the same. King's #10 is similar to stock kernel with Fresh, battery life is about the same I think. Especially if you don't overclock. Seems like battery drain when the screen is off is a lot less with King's #10, but that may be because I have SetCPU set to 384/245 when screen's off. Hope there's a King's #11 soon with the new kernel base and after he gets his EVO.

th3taman 10-01-2010 10:30 PM

My EVO just went to the white HTC screen today out of the blue. :scratch:

Battery pull and restart wouldn't fix? I ended up reflashing Fresh 3.3.0.1, then King's CFS#10, and then a theme I had applied. Everything is back the way it was, but wondering if the Kernel created the problem?

Hope King has a new BFS kernel soon. :fingers:

pad191 10-01-2010 10:39 PM

It rebooted on its own? And then never got past the white HTC screen? I noticed that after wiping cache and davlink, the EVO takes exceptionally long to boot, so it might not be a freeze everytime it looks like it's not loading.

From King's thread:

"Guys I found the issue with battery life


I have fixed it for my HTC Incredible kernel and will merge the fix into my Evo kernel

Thank you all for the feedback!"

EDIT: Also, there's a website compiling benchmarks of all the kernels for those that are interested. Credit goes to someone at xda for putting time and effort into compiling this information and doing the testing. A lot of xda devs are using the results of this to help improve future kernels.

Did you flash the BFS #10. King even said it was causing battery problems. CFS #10 should be ok with the battery.

Yeah, there's some issues with the BFS #10, other people have reported lots of problems with it, such as excessive battery drain, wake lock, among other things. CFS #10 seems to be nice and stable.

Trying the cfs one now.so far so good

pad191 10-03-2010 09:07 AM

After a few days, looks like CFS#10 got better, I'm pulling very good battery life when idling, better than before on regular Fresh.

Did Titanium backup...seriously thinking of trying CM6.

tbakergobuck 10-03-2010 07:42 PM

I've been using the latest Fresh rom but kinda wanted to try something else. However I don't really have the patients/time to research what I want not mention still don't know what I'm doing. LOL

Go for it. I changed last week from Fresh to CM6 with the Snap kernal and am very very happy with it. Reason I switched was I never used Sense. I have an alternate launcher and used none of the Sense widgets so I didn't see the point in having it. The one thing I do like about Fresh/Sense better than CM6/ASOP is the dialer. You can't start typing the name of the contact and have the number come up like that. But it does have an easily accessible favorites tab which is a decent alternative.

th3taman 10-04-2010 09:09 AM

I did it...I switched to CM6! Now I need to figure out which SnapTurbo kernel to use. Lot's more complicated that Netarchy and King's custom Sense kernels.

boomhower 10-04-2010 11:53 AM

I just went with 7.6, seems to be the most popular. Turning on Turbo was simple enough and it's running along at a brisk 1.19Ghz, daddy like.

What are you using to back-up with? I use Titanium and once you run the restore it's back up like you had it, launcher and all.

Hard to say honestly. My use varies so much I can't really get a read on it. Some days I am so busy it stays idle all day save some texts. Other days it has heavy data use downloading podcasts and such where it's begging for a charger in no time.(that's going to be the case with any ROM, 3G kills battery regardless) Yesterday I pulled off the charger a 0545 and went home at 1920 with 39% left. Pretty mild usage with a few texts, probably 45 minutes total of web surfing, and a little bit of video via the NFL app.(that watch every touchdown mess is complete bliss!) Not scientific or exact by any stretch but it's the best I can do right now.

thekarens 10-04-2010 07:14 PM

Rom Manager doesn't like me and will not for love nor money work for me so I'm going to us this method to flash CM6 http://forum.androidcentral.com/hack...king-pros.html

1.Root with unrevoked unrevoked use the first option, not the forever one.
2. Go to Market and download ROM Manager
3. From ROM Manager, install Amon_Ra recovery (Clockworks gives some problems installing CM6)
4. Download CM6 and and google addons from here: [ROM][***][BBQ] CyanogenMod-6 - No Sense at ALL! - V6.0.0 (08/28/2010) - xda-developers
5. Download the ENG bootloader (PC36IMG.zip) from here: ENG bootloader (0.76 needed for CM6) extended fastboot commands. - xda-developers
6. Download the kernel CM6-Snapv7.6 Turbo (get the cfs 7.6 version) from here: xda-developers - View Single Post - [Kernel] CM6-Snapv7.6 Turbo! Splash Screens, Papersv3, Widgetv5
7. Copy the CM6, PC36IMG.zip, and the Snap kernel to the root of your sdcard
8. Power off your phone
9. Press power and Vol down, until you get to the white window with androids on skate board
10. It will see your PC36IMG, and ask you to press vol up to install...do so
11. When that is done, go to recovery it will show you the Amon_Ra recovery. Do a nandroid backup if you havenīt done it before. Then, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, wipe Dalvik cache.
12. Go to install zip from sdcard, look for the update-cm-6.0.0-Supersonic-signed and apply it.
13. When the above is done, do the same (install zip from sdcard), now look for cm6-snapv7.6cfs_signed an apply it.
14. When the above is done, do the same (install zip from sdcard), now look for gapps-hdpi-20100817-signed and apply it.
15. If no errors were found, then you are done...Reboot into your now working CM6 vanilla froyo.
16 Enjoy!!

Wish me luck!

thekarens 10-04-2010 09:16 PM

The steps make it sound harder than it was. Basically I swited to Amon Ra's recovery via Rom manager, added 4 files to my sd card, wiped the phone completely and then installed those 4 files and rebooted. That person just gave a step by step in great detail, which someone like me needs :)

So far I'm liking CM6. My only complaint is the Roam Control app does not work with it and I really need that for work. Whenever I try to use it it FC and reboots my phone. Just for entertainment I tried Fixing Permissions through Rom Manager, but that made no difference.

Nope, no 4G. If you live in a 4G area this isn't the ROM for you. Also no HDMI or FM radio.

th3taman 10-05-2010 07:26 AM

Well, I've tested out CM6 for 24 hours. I can definitely say that it is very speedy. No lag, nice and smooth. Pulls thing up quicker than when I used stock or Fresh. I also like the customizations that cyanogen brings to the ROM. It's definitely a nice ROM.

Now here's the bad...battery life. :td: :(

I'm around 13.5 hours and at 21 percent. I had 58% when I woke up. My phone dropped 10% overnight?!? My phone would usually drop maybe 1-2% overnight with Fresh. The 2ish hours that I've used my phone since I woke up it has dropped 38%. I would have had a drop of maybe 15% with Fresh. I used it just the same as I normally do. This is a real downer because I need my phone to last longer than this. I usually only had to charge my phone once a day with Fresh.

I will give CM6 another day or two and will probably try a custom kernel...but I'm really saddened by the very poor battery life I've gotten so far.

Hoping it improves! :fingers:

What have others experienced with their CM6 battery life?

thekarens 10-05-2010 07:38 AM

I've only had mine overnight, but it's been about the same as always, which was never great about 6 hours of fairly heavy use.

I used mine as normal...with the exception of making some small changes last night. But I would never be this low this quick on Fresh. Damn...so disappointed.

Going to look for a custom kernel for help. :fingers: Snap or King?

thekarens 10-05-2010 07:53 AM

I'm using Snap, maybe others have had better luck with King?

th3taman 10-05-2010 08:32 AM

Found this on the CM6 thread on xda...

I experienced horrible battery and I flashed over to another ROM and then did a complete wipe and made sure my battery was full when I flashed back to CM. That made all the difference for me. Even heavy usage I'm getting a full day now.

Think I may try this although it will be a hassle. Sigh.

Thanks, :-) Been super busy with school and work lately I have little time to jump on here like I could over the summer.

Anyway, finally loaded CM6 and SNAPturbo installed and it's not bad. Deffinately takes some getting used to coming from Sense based roms. I'm going to play with it for a few days and see how it goes.

th3taman 10-05-2010 01:18 PM

Flashed back to Fresh and then back to CM6 with a full battery. Hoping for better battery results. Going to try King's CM6 kernel...probably tomorrow.

Well that didn't last long for me. Cm6 decided it wanted to just keep force closing the core android system so I tried to wipe first and when that didn't work I tried to flash a nandroid backup. It said it was corrupt.

I finally got restored by going into recovery and actually using adb from my computer to run the restore.

I'm running the latest Fresh and it is killing my battery. I haven't really pushed it to the max just the occasional texting and email. Should I install a kernel? I don't really have a lot of apps either. Thanks :)

EDIT: I don't know if this matters, but I have SetCPU profiles to

Screen Off: 245 max/245min, ondemand, priority 100

Charging AC/Full: 768 max/245min, ondemand, priority 50

Charging/Full: 499max/245min, ondemand, priority 50

I just enabled "Turbo" on my Snap kernel. We'll see what kind of entertainment ensues (if any)

I had a small problem with my battery dying really fast after installing the latest Fresh. I found that there was a system process called suspend which was constantly keeping my cpu at 30-50% and killing my battery real fast ( like 1% every 10 min with screen off). It happened twice and all I did was reboot to resolve it. It hasn't come back since although I keep an eye out for it. You might want to install Spare Parts or System Panel to find out if something is keeping your phone awake.

Also, you shouldn't have a setCPU profile with the same priority. Change one of the profiles to 51 or something else different than 50 so you don't have issues with setCPU freaking out. ( maybe that's what's killing your battery? )

I had similar issue with cm on my hero a month ago, my fix was removing SD & boot without it, I guess a file was making it loop & failing restore =\

I think those are really restrictive and really want help save you battery life. How long do you go? I was running Fresh 3.3 and King's Kernel CFS #10 until just a few days ago. Was getting really good battery life sometimes over 24 hours with moderate to slightly more than moderate use.

zuberx6 10-12-2010 03:41 PM

So any new ROMS out there for a freshly rooted EVO. What is the best all around?

Thanks for that tip, I also took off the weather and news from syncing and that seemed to helped the battery life a little.

Hmm, so what do you recommend I change my profiles to or should I even have any? The battery lasts around 9-10 hours with moderate use. 24 hours is awesome. I might just have to get a kernel. I just get a little nervous messing with my evo's brain.

Bball:

I'm using some settings recommended by a user here and I get really good battery life with moderate usage. Here they are if you want to give them a try:

Battery 998max - 245min userspace
Screen Off 576 max - 245min userspace
Charging/Full 998max - 245mind ondemand

This works well for me. Good luck!

bball1011 10-13-2010 05:31 PM

Thanks Diana Prince, I'll give those profiles a try.

EDIT: Oh yea, what % of battery to you have the " Battery< " profile set to and also what do you have your priority settings to?

I've been staying stock with the deodexed ROM by Steel (just updated to Rev G) on xda and I have to say it is basically flawless. It's really been working well so far and I'm happy with the stock look.

Sorry forgot that part. Battery <50% priority setting is 52, screen off priority setting is 51 and charging full priority setting is 50.

Running CM6, Kernal Aosp cfs #1 and I'm receiving Android 9016 text voicemails. I downloaded visual voice mail and it's working but would like to find out how to stop the voice mail texts.

I told you, blacklist them through Chomp or Handcent. :rolleyes: That's the direction given on XDA. Test it out, you can always remove the blacklisting.

Download and install the Sprint VM apk I sent you. Change the voicemail settings to your number, and blacklist 9016.

Test it out. Should work.

Yea I did install the VM apk. Blacklisting just doesn't sound right. LOL I just want it to work like it should but I guess if that's the only option I will try.

You get the text from 9016 because you are using CM6. If you weren't using that ROM, I don't think you would get the text. Like I said, you can always remove the blacklist at anytime.

That's the solution I found on XDA. :tu:

I guess I need to read up on it but I need my phone to function as phone first and play second. lol I blacklistrd 9016 and still having the issue. Every time I restart my phone it shows a voice mail when I don't have one.

There is no way that I'm aware of? You can do things like minimize screen brightness, use custom kernels, turn off wifi, bluetooth, gps when not using. There's no app or settings that I'm aware of to specifically tweak the battery.

This Battery tweak is what I'm talking about. I installed it just like a rom but not sure how I tell if it's working. I haven't had time to really read up on it yet though.

Oh, I didn't mess with that because it could interfere with some of King's kernels and the batter savings he has implemented within them.

2nd bullet in last section under Download and Install.

You have to use ADB. There's a separate thread on XDA about it. I'd send the link, but I'm at work and can't access XDA here.

I like Fresh and even donated. But I think he's lost interest in development and had family/work keeping him busy. Fresh was the only custom ROM I used on my Hero and my EVO for the longest time.

But now I'm on CM6 because there is much larger devotion and development going on with it right now. Debating on flashing a nightly.

I would like CM6 very much if it included Sense. I like Sense a lot.

Plus I tried to flash CM6 to my EVO and my EVO just wouldn't take it at all no matter what I did. I've successfully Flashed 8 other ROM's successfully just to give them a try or whatever and had no issues. Just CM6 was a problem installing.

Did you do a factory wipe/reset? Wipe cache, davlick cache? And flash Gapps after flashing the CM6 ROM?

If it didn't work, I've heard that after doing all the wiping, flash a Sense based ROM...get a 3G connection established and then try to reflash CM6.

Hmm...not sure? Weird. If you really want to install, all I can say is go on xda and search/post on the CM6 thread or go to cyanogenmod.com and see what you might find there.

I just flashed the latest nightly. Seems to be good so far. I'm using the included kernel. Snap wasn't playing nicely.

wuuuutttt? Is it a new sense? I didn't read that in the release notes. Time to backup & flash!

th3taman 10-27-2010 07:38 AM

Normally, I would have been all over a Fresh update. But I think I'm addicted to CM now and might just stay with it...for now.

Let me know if there is anything new and exciting on Fresh 3.4 worth trying out.

Where? Is the fresh updater thing supposed to work? I went back to Fresh from CM6 because the annoying VM 9016 issue. I tried all the so called fixes and none worked.

thekarens 10-27-2010 09:46 AM

I tried Fresh for awhile (the new update was only available to donating members yesterday) but I swapped back to CM nightlies. I really prefer it over all the others I've tried. Fresh is my favorite Sense rom.
