    OK, so I went through the actual code, for instance mddi_novatek_hvga.c. Also, check out zefie's revision history for Xionia.

    The code for the V is the same as his code for 007 (and later). So, if you are coming from Xionia 005, the driver code is different. The same is true with lots of other stuff in drivers/video/msm code as well as drivers/video/backlight (the config var LCD_CLASS_DEVICE toggles lowlevel support for contrast adjustments of fb devices).

    Now, this isn't necessarily "it" (one would have to build the kernel with both versions of the code and do a comparison) but I suspect it explains the issue.

    Remember, if you are running Xionia 005 on your V, you are running old unofficial code which was never even intended by zefie for your phone. It might work great for you, just don't use it as a baseline.

    I am still on version 6. I didn't notice anything but I was using Xionia 13 before this.

    Well, since the code changed, it's probably more likely that someone at LG agrees with you and it was changed on purpose than that it happened accidentally.

    Afternoon, everyone.

    Just applied the .7a kernel over a fully-wiped-then-just-installed Aphrodite 2.0.1 yesterday, and I have to tell you, picasticks, this has been a total pleasure to run on.

    For my personal experience (your mileage may very), here's what I've felt on my device with it:

    Buttons were correctly mapped. No issues whatsoever from a fresh install.

    My OC is thus far stable with a minimal heat feel from my device at a 'casual' 768/Performance scaling (the sweet spot for my particular V), and no locks, resets, or lag issues.

    I use LauncherPro, and in conjunction with this ROM/kernel combo, it feels about as smooth as a device in this hardware spec could realistically get. A far cry better than stock we have when we first buy our phones.

    Fresh-loaded my back-up apk's, and all work as they should on other ROMS with absolutely no strange force closings or glitching. (Everyone uses different apps, your experiences may vary - as always )

    Display for me is vibrant and looks great. No weirdness that I can see, but then again I keep my display brightness fairly low, and it still looks great.

    I haven't tried Bluetooth or hotspotting yet, so I can't comment on those features, but Wi-Fi and most other native phone functions I've used have worked like a champ.

    It's almost like we're using software for... our... device?! What is this MADNESS?!

    Still too early on battery life, but I'm doing high 90's% after 5 hours and mild texting/app useage. My auto screen turn off is set to 2 minutes, if that's relevant. It seems to be pretty good to me thus far.

    Still a lot to play with, but it seems to be top notch so far.

    Thanks very much for taking the time to make this, man. It's really appreciated.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about switching to aphrodite from rodimus myself... I would just like to be able to use some themes pretty easily. I hope someone creates some

    rodimus is great for battery, but Ive had issues with bluetooth crashing on pairing...

    I think I'll wait on aphrodite until someone natively uses this kernel and that rom instead of that rom with xionia and then picasticks on top of it.

    Update: About 7 hours of uptime, battery is at 75%, with two hours of TuneIn radio running in the background. With WiFi on as well, so far I'd consider it quite good on battery life.

    First possible (I stress possible, here) issue I've noticed is Auto-Rotation not working. I noticed it when browsing and using YouTube. Mind, this could absolutely be something I've done wrong, just something to bring up if anyone else can confirm or deny so I can poke around and see if it's a something I've done.

    Thanks again.

    I flashed RodimusRom then the kernel before booting. Then applied my theme. The accelerometer has worked fine even since.

    Perhaps it was some left stuff from xionia, when switching from Xionia13 I did have accelerometer troubles.

    Drezliok, I do believe you may be completely correct.

    I went ahead and fully wiped, then fresh installed Aphrodite 1.3.3 (old faithful ) and kernel flashed .7a over, and the accelerometer appears to now be working perfectly. Perhaps it's because the base of 1.3.3 is Xionia 005, or it was flashed overtop before reboot, but either way, it worked just fine for me and it's functioning perfectly as it should.

    Much appreciated for the idea to adjust up the install method a bit!
    Now to tinker a bit more.

    As you go up in Xionia numbers, things get more and more experimental and further from the original code.

    The same applies to CM7, it's even further from stock.

    That's a great point that sort of bonked me over the head when Drezliok mentioned it.

    I was well aware of the experimental state higher Xionia kernels would be for our device, and somehow completely spaced that would be a factor.

    My own stupidity aside, I'm happy to report that so far, Aphrodite 1.3.3 and picasticks .7a play very nicely together thus far, and it's still smooth like butter.

    This community never fails to impress!

    Not stupid, most just don't consider how far off it has moved. The fact that we got any of the newer ones to work is surprising. I went over some change logs, but those don't tell even half the story about what all has gone on with the Xionia kernel.

    But yeah, Aphrodite 1.3.3 really seems to love this kernel.

    Just an FYI, if you flash any of the Xionia kernels from my post, you cannot flash directly to this or any other kernel without things breaking. You need to restore your nandroid backup first. I'll work on making a reversing zip, but until then, restoring your backup is the only way you can use this custom kernel.

    How about coming from a fresh install of rodimus?

    You'll have to ask picasticks. I know that Rodimus has its own tweaks, and this kernel was made to work with the stock rom and drivers.

    On the ports of Xionia that I made, I change the file sensors.thunderc.so to get the accelerometer to work with the kernel. When you flash this kernel, it doesn't change that file back to the stock one and that might be what is causing the problems. Rodimus might also have an incompatible sensors.thunderc.so. I don't know.

    This could be an issue on Aphrodite 2.0.1 since I did toss Marzz kernel and files into it, I used his to avoid the Sprint animation.

    The rest it shouldn't be so much of an issue, they use a standard Xionia kernel. We already know 1.3.3 std. works extremely well with this kernel. I also ran a quick test of it on Aphrodite Extra Pure, and it works fine there as well. Considering that it is 100% Opt. V, it shouldn't be a shock.

    I flashed this earlier today and I love it, everything is fast and smooth. I had only one problem, I could not get link2sd to work with any of the ext formats so after formatting 4 different times I finally got it to work with the partition formatted as FAT.

    Rodimus uses Xionia 05, when I flashed fresh I did not let they system boot with Xionia. I flashed the new kernel into it so if there were any settings that get written at first boot would be for pickasticks.

    Atleast that kinda what I was thinking. But if mmarz made adjustments for all the other kernels and not the 05 it might be safe to say you can flash over 05 but not any higher.

    For those of you coming from the Xionia Kernels I posted, use this to reverse the tweaks it installs before or after installing Picasticks Kernel. It returns files that are found in the stock kernel. I thought this was the best name for it:
    OptimusV_Stock_Crap_signed.zip

    Flash it in recovery.

    I'm 99% sure it should fix the accelerometer issue. These files are different from what Rodimus uses. I'm not sure how that rom will react to these. Flash at your own risk. MAKE BACKUPS!

    Just a quick additional note on the Aphrodite front, then I'll let our fine Rodimus-using friends use the space for getting their kernel stuff discussed.

    Echoing your findings, LeslieAnn, just wanting to second the extra-virgin ROM of 1.3.3 has been smooth and issue free, a same, mirrored experience I'm finding with 1.3.3 standard. Still a quick pass, but I'm not finding weirdness or issues at this point.

    I suppose, like you said, coming from V kernel to a V kernel is probably a pretty practical idea.

    Anyway, thanks again everyone.

    Ah, so maybe I will back up my apps today and load the extra virgin 1.3.3 of aphrodite, and then put picasticks on, as you have done.

    Then I can get a nice clean experience with overclocking still present and the other benefits of picasticks.
