    Not sure if this is the place to post it, but running @1.5ghz using uberkernel + Govnah, and the sound stopped working after leaving the Touchpad at home all day. A luna restart didn't work, but a full reboot fixed the issue.

Some of us do, esp. that want this to become useful in the business world will <need> this, as the ecosystem comes together. I actually really appreciate that it'll slow down and disable a core if the workload doesn't require it. IMHO, that's elegant programming.
    With the stock kernel it ramps up quicker due to the slower CPU speed. Also F15 starts it's bottom end at 432MHz (the real bottom) so the governor calculates things correctly when scaling up, so scaling from 192MHz during peak load will ramp up the 2nd core quicker, hence people seeing the 2nd core come online more than with my kernel. Along with the fact it's also 1.7GHz and I do other tweaks to run more efficient so it really doesnt need the 2nd core as much. Also, most users aren't ramping up Govnah to poll every 1s to actually see the 2nd core ramp up.

    New TP user here wanting to overclock.

    Is this the Preware a TouchPad user installs?

    Application:Preware - WebOS Internals

    Or is that just for Palm Phone devices?

    Have had Uberkernel along with Govnah running for a couple of weeks now and everything so far seems to running great. Battery life has not significantly changed, although I've been using the TP more lately in terms of playing games and watching vids. My temp is usually range between 26 to 35 degrees. I tried the NOOP option and found the CFQ option to be be better. I will however, do further comparisons between the two. No major issues, it still stalls ones in a blue moon, but I need to get into a habit of rebooting once in a while. Have had too many cards error, but only with too many browers open playing vids. Thanks!!

    I just downloaded Uberkernel. Working MUCH faster then original.

    I got it working.

    When official HP updates come what is the best policy?

    Revert to official kernel?+
    Remove patches?+
    Remove Governr?+
    Remove Preware?

    And then update and then reinstall them?

    No need to remove Preware or Govnah. Removing patches and reverting the kernel is a good idea though.

    There is never a need to revert UberKernel. Either the kernel is overwritten by the update (in which case you just reinstall UberKernel afterwards), or the kernel is not overwritten by the update (in which case by definition it will still work).

    Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification there.

    before installing uberkernel; I suffered from random periods of lag, where the screen seemingly accepted no input for 10 to 20 seconds (yes, running 3.0.2).

    after installing uberkernel; problems are completely gone!

    I just installed uberkernel. Certainly adds pep to my TP when running at 1.5. So far no issues.

    I just installed uberkernel. Govnah sees both CPUs running up to 1512. At idle, I see 1st CPU drop to 192MHz and 2nd CPU go to zero. Battery current draw with wifi off and screen at dimmest is 481-500 mA. Battery temp is 31*C.

    I have not played with it enough to notice any usability difference yet.

    I didn't see it in the Govnah settings - is there a CPU temp graph?

    Thanks to all for the efforts.

    We haven't found the temp sensor on the touchpad cpu yet.

    I'm going to be heading to my local Best Buy around 830ish because they start selling the TouchPad at 1000. What is the deal with this overclocking? I've never owned a WebOS based device (only apple). Does this speed the system up? Can this be done if I own a Apple Macbook as my computer?

    Thanks everyone.

    All you need, to overclock (speed up) the TouchPad, is 'Preware Homebrew Documentation' buy this from the app catalog and follow instructions to the wonders of webOS.
    Pre3 (AT&T meta-doctored to ROW) webOS 2.2.4 build 3175
    TouchPad WiFi (32GB) - webOS 3.0.5 build 86
    App Catalog (US) - Vodafone (India)

    Treo 180 > 270 > 600 > 650 > 680 > Pre+ > Pre2 > Pre+ > Pre3 & tPad

    It really is super easy. Bought my 149 touchpad yesterday at walmart, had preware installed and overclocked in a matter of minutes after reading the instructions. Even brand new the device was lagging at times but at 1.5ghz it's amazing the difference now

    I am another new touchpad user who is simply amazed at the difference in performance between stock and after Uberkernel @1.5GHz with the key non-logging patches and other speed patches. It's truly crazy how big of an improvement these make. Night and day...Fantastic job to you, Rod, and your team...and all the Homebrewers.
