battery saving kernel for the dinc?
what is the best battery saving kernel? doesnt have to be overclocked, im not looking for performance, but id rather not have it underclocked
does it effect the ROM in any way? the ROM im running uses the stock kernel

well, im in the process of flashing HeyItsLou, im gonna test it out, as it seems very popular.
Im also runing the virtuous ROM with the sexy rosie mod. if HeyItsLou doesnt work out for me, then ill try Chad's kernel, i dont use exchange for my mail, and im not doing anything important with the phone... yet

well, im no expert, but the only ROM ive seen that has problems with certain kernels is CM6.1 not sure why
in theory, you should be able to flash HeyItsLou with no problems, but the one skyraider included is probably better, as its made according to that ROM

i have found the virtuous rom likes the modified kernel best and Kings too. chads was causing a couple annoying issues and ziggys never seem to mix well, lots of reboots. I am now running Kings #6 and it seems to be doing fine. I might give Lous a shot also.

Here's a basic overview of all the kernels mentioned in the thread:
Ziggy's: work very nicely with my phone. It can get a bit laggy at times, and battery is average, but it is generally a great kernel with good performance, but can be spotty at times.
King #6: its based off old source, but its quick and battery is good. No problems with this one.
Chad kernel: its great for some people, but laggy out for others. It looks promising, but it doesn't work with my phone.
Lou kernel: its stock with a few enhancement...what could go wrong here?
And just some quick info:
Smartass governor isn't so special, nor does it help. If you have a havs and undervolted kernel, there is no need for sa governor.

i tested out HeyItsLou, as it looked very promising, but i had no improvment what so ever, infact, it made it slightly worse for me
99% of the time, after school, i would have about 75%ish, today i had 69%, and i did nothing on it today, where as before, i would be all over other forums throughout the day
im gonna try King #6, it seems decent, ill let u guys know
btw, i cant seem to find it, can i get a link to it? i wanna try Chad's too, so ill try chad's first, as i found a link for it

ahh, kk thanks
one more thing.
what are some basic profiles i should have?
as of now, i have four
charging(goes down to 500-600mhz)
battery >50 (down to 500-700mhz)
temp over 46C(something like 114F?) down to 400-600mhz
if im not mistaking, with chad's i can go down to 125mhz? so ill set screen off to 125-245
and ill set my main from 900-1.1ghz
and the main is set at 700-900mhz
obviously the "00" isnt really exact, but im sure you get my point

i am using invisiblek #18. seems to be good so far. i am running it with CM 6.1 stable release. i have it over clocked at 1113max and 460min on smartass setting. and i have the screen off profile set up to 460 max 245 min on smartass scaling as well. seems to be working well for me. the reason for having the 460 max is because i was reading around that having it at 245 could have issues. some times you dont receive text messages and such.

i didn't know there was a #19, never seen it. so far 5hr 42m since unplugged and i have 85% battery left. so i guess thats good? i sent some text messages, browsed facebook, went to a few websites, played angry birds and listened to a lot of music with poweramp. personally i would say this is pretty good, but i am also new to all this kernel business. i am using the 1750mAh battery from seidio too.
welll, i had a full day with CHad's kernel, it did save battery life, and if i didnt wifi tether for my friend for an hour, it would have saved a lot more, it was at 74% at the end of the day after the wifi tethering
it would probably be around d78% without wifi tethering, but what i noticed is a couple bugs, and lag issues, and lots of lagg issues, which made it impossible for my to answer a call
i phone just(like 2 seconds ago) finished flashing King #6, i read about it, and apparently it saved the battery life like no other, and improved it by a ton
ill let u guys know tomorrow on how it goes

flash Lous on sunday night and today is the first full day without going to work to see how the battery fairs. Seems to be a little more use than Virtuous custom #2. Speedwise its pretty good. No lagging really like some others have had.
Overall for now it will stay on my phone and see what happens

So I used Virtuous Adrynalyne, till I tried Chads. Did not like how the phone reacted to Chads, even though it did save my battery some. Now I'm back to Virtuous's Adrynalyne (i believe that is custom #2 as mentioned) and I now have WORSE battery life than before. Any ideas why that may be? Should I clear battery stats? I don't understand why it is worse now then before. Stinkin Chad......shoulda left well enough alone!
