    Tweaked OC Kernel. Alot of tweaks to the compile process.

    Special Note:
    The official latest Xionia for users with Baseband version less than VC is 005. There are no improvements for V9 or lower.

    Due to internal changes in VC it is required to seperate it for stability. If you try 006 or higher on V9 or lower and have problems, please revert to your nandroid backup, then flash 005. Please remember to restore your nandroid backup FIRST otherwise you will retain some of 006+'s features and things will REALLY break.

    Features:

    Added in 013
    • Switched LCD driver, resolves 'blank screen' issues for newer devices

    Added in 012
    • Re-added scaling_available_frequencies patch for CM7

    Added in 011
    • Completely rebuilt from VD sources
    • Upgraded to 2.6.32.33
    • All prior driver patches overwritten by VD drivers.
    • Still the super-optimized OC Xionia you have grown to love
    • Feels alot faster

    Added in 010

    Added in 009
    • Updated to LS670ZVD drivers
    • Now offering experimental LS670ZVD kernel only (AnyKernel Edition). May work for users having problems with boot.img edition eating space in /data.

    Added in 008
    • Exchanged some drivers with other LG kernel code
    • Optimization for Gingerbread

    Added in 007
    • Proper VC mach-msm drivers

    Added in 006
    • Many driver updates from VC kernel
    • boot.img format requires new initrd, due to driver changes. May also help compatibility with Optimus V. Stock Ramdisk
    • Be sure to make a Nandroid Backup before flashing, many users are reporting trouble
    • VC Baseband and higher only

    Added in 005
    • Final stable kernel for V6-V9 Baseband
    • pppoe and pppox support, still no VPN.. see update post
    • CIFS and NLS_UTF8 for CifsManager by request

    Added in 004
    • Standard Maintenance Release
    • Xionia Version added to Kernel Version, viewable under "About Phone -> Kernel version"

    Added in 003
    • BFS Scheduler
    • disabled control groups completely
    • disabled group cpu scheduler completely
    • lowest lag yet
    • IPv6 re-enabled
    • [? 01]: Fixed SoftAP issue in wireless driver, tethering repaired.

    Added in 002
    • more tweaks
    • older compiler
    • -O2 instead of -O3
    • -O2 instead of -Os on wifi driver
    • removed cgroup autosched
    • added BFQ
    • reduced lag slightly
    • wifi driver from P500 src
    • [? 01]: wifi tether broken, SoftAP was disabled.

    Added in 001
    • OC up to 864mhz
    • Optimized for ARM1136JF-S, the processor core in our Optimus S

    Quick question...

    Can we just keep flashing Kernels on top of Kernels or should we completely re-flash the rom and then flash Kernels?

    If that makes any sense.

    should be no problem flashing over an existing kernel/rom because the script only updates the kernel and not the ramdisk

    Do I need to use SetCPU to enable this? or just flash and it will be enabled after reboot?

    thanks for another option! It was pretty laggy on mine though. No matter what speed i clocked it too. Going to try flashing it again here later and see if maybe I just didnt get a bad flash.

    wifi causes lag for some unknown reason. if you disable wifi it works better.

    i didnt have the wifi on. I started with it on, then turned it off, and still had the lag. It was wierd. only on initial movements? like when I opened up the menu. the opening, and the first swipe was laggy, but then it was fast and smooth. Same thing with the programs.

    Is this kernel only for optimus S or for the whole line of LG P500?

    Kernels, once compiled, only work on one specific model.

    The source code can likely be easily tweaked for the P500.

    Zefie I was looking at the name of the thread and it says the kernel v2.6.32.36 but when you download it I get the same one I had before its showing 2.32.26 just wanted to tell you I think the file name is wrong or the thread name is

    Thanks for the hard work on this kernel, zefie.
    I'm plagued by the laggy phone after flashing the kernel however -- odd because it's not consistant, tried re-flashing/wifi/waiting for lock/airplane mode/rebooting.. no dice.. so I've restored to my nandroid backup pre-flashing. I'll keep my eye in for updates. Good stuff!

    I really appreciate you developing this Kernel for the Optimus.

    I know that I should have fully read this thread and been more aware of the lag issues prior to installing the Kernel but I didn't.

    Can someone please tell me how to uninstall the Xionia Kernel and go back to ThundeROM V1.3???
    (Note: I have NOT created a nandroid backup since installing ThundeROM so if there is a way to remove the Kernel but keep ThundeROM w/o a re-install, I'd appreciate it)

    Thanks, in advance, for your thoughtful feedback and thanks for your hard work in developing material for the Optimus S.

    Just reflash ThundeROM V1.3 and you should be fine. Dont do a wipe and you should not loose anything.

    quadrant numbers went from 980+ to 480ish. everything/apps get laggy - tried with wifi off, reboot ... all that. off to reflash thundeROM.

    EDIT:

    after i set cpu governor to ondemand quadrant went back up to 890. back of the phone feels a bit warmer than usual.
