    heres the kernel. hopefully i didnt break nothin
    (not a flashable zip. just the kernel and modules zipped up)
    Do you want me to decompile Bob's recovery and throw the zimage in?
    Have you thought of koush's anykernel flash zip? It's real helpful

    ive already modified his build.sh script to do it all for me. i was just lazy

    heres a flashable zip

    (note: its old. check the other thread i hijacked)

    If it improves performance I'll be sure to include it in my next MIUIgb update.

    Hold on a minute, is that download a new kernel? Does it work better or is it a placebo?

    If people notice extreme differences then its a placebo. But there are a few changes that could help some.
    The sio scheduler I know nothing about, but its used in quattrimus so I decided to try it (also have noop, deadline, and bfq compiled in as options). The -ck patchset works wonders on my desktops, so using it here should help (using bfs on the mytouch 3g was noticeably more responsive). Everything else.. idk.

    Also wanted to point something out, the kernel is kinda aiming at improved responsiveness. there's a difference between that and performance.
    example. My desktop using a kernel from the debian repo can compile a kernel quickly, but I can do nothing else while doing this = performance
    Vanilla kernel + ck patches takes a little longer to compile, but I barely notice its even doing anything while I watch YouTube and waste time in facebook = responsive
    My build box/web server is configured to be not very responsive at all (I even notice lag in ssh) but it does its jobs quick = performance

    On these phones, I think we want responsiveness
    (People smarter than me, please correct any errors I made)

    You seriously believe people besides Bob or tdm to read that and understand every word? LOL!
    jk, nice job! I'm seeing some overall better performances. Now to take a speed test to really determine

    I don't understand a lot of the mumbo jumbo, but I ran some tests of my own (basic tests).
    I flashed the newest version of bobzhome and ran neocore. It had 55-57 fps in the tests I ran. I then installed this kernel and found that the fps were the same, EXCEPT (here's where it gets good) I recorded myself dragging the statusbar too and fro with both kernels at slow, moderate, then fast speeds. Guess which one did better? The one you uploaded it felt and is more responsive.

    So then I consider this a success (didn't expect real benchmarks to show much). Thanks for testing for me.

    Tried to keep it simple, but I guess I'm just better at showing off.

    Enjoy

    Also, this kernel is now included in my iho-magpie rom from the 11.4.12 release on.
    Source is at https://github.com/tvall43/android_kernel_thunderc

    You can now go back to the previous discussion about the cm7 rom for the p500 with overkill tweaks, a nice theme, updated gpu libs, and a cool kernel

    And how does that compare to the rom without the kernel? (I'm assuming your showing a benchmark with the new kernel)

    Its just a kernel. Use it on any gb rom (its the default one in my rom)

    The numbers are a lot higher, they were just a little better than the hero before, now they are way better.

    The kernel has some patches from the one in the gtr rom. But they aren't too similar.
    My magpie rom has it built in. Flash it and.. that's all. If you want to use this kernel on another rom, flash it after flashing the rom.
    And I avoid recommending roms because I'm biased toward mine

    Are you talking about the performance governor? If that's the case, and you have it set at 245/600, it's going to stay at 600 all the time. You want to use onDemand, or smartass.
