    step by step for browser memory:

    available packages
    patch
    browser

    in there it should be titled 'allow browser in low mem'

    I installed all of this on the wifes pixi last night. I'll ask her tonight how significant the difference is and report back.

    im a doubter as well

    i heard this same line with the pre "its hardware limited to 800mhz, thats max"....ya, that lasted lol

    The difference is that the person who you heard that from (e.g. not someone from WebOS Internals) had never written a line of kernel code.

    But feel free to hope in vain. Just don't try to convince anyone else that your unfounded hope is in any way based on technical merit.

    True. I'm running at 1Ghz with Uberkernel.
    I own a Verizon Palm Pre 2 running WebOS 2.0.1

    Here to help and learn

    I am curious, is there a way to benchmark the compcache using dd and comparing that to speeds of the ssd?
    Because I am wondering if this cpu is slower or faster at compressing / decompressing data going in and out of compcache swap vs using ssd for swap file.

    I know using dd our ssd is about 20MB/sec read...
    I tried dd on /dev/ramzswap but that file seems to be a combination of both the compcache and swap file...so theres no way to tell.

    Im wondering is there a way to easily set up a ramz loop device and run benches on that?
    I dont seem to have rzcontrol available in terminal...so Im wondering whats the commands govnah uses to setup the compcache device, maybe could use those commands to create a loop ramz device.

    Thanks

    It's not possible to overclock the Pixi (well at least MY Pixi).

    How do I know? Well, afaikafaikafaik, $I$'$m$ $the$ $only$ $one$ $that$ $has$ $patched$ $the$ $Pixi$ $kernel$ $to$ $try$ $to$ $do$ $so$. $The$ $Pixi$ $is$ $much$ $more$ $limited$ $in$ $terms$ $of$ $possible$ $frequencies$. $The$ $next$ $possible$ $step$ $up$ $is$ $960Mhz$.

    You are welcome to try membooting the kernel but I really doubt that your phone would boot.

    Pixi (Sprint)

    If you have to ask about membooting, you should not be doing this. Also, this obviously voids any sort of warranty your phone has and I take no responsibility if your phone is damaged. YMMV.

    So, let me get this right, your memboot method has successfully ran the cpu at 960mhz or not? but you just know that frequency possibility exists...

    I tested this kernel for codecrumb on a couple of Pixi devices, and it did not boot.

    This was our only hope for Pixi overclocking (codecrumb is a WebOS Internals kernel developer), and unfortunately it was not successful.

    I own an LG Ally (Android phone) and a Pre Plus.

    It may be worth noting that the Ally has the same CPU as the Pixi and has been successfully overclocked to 729, 748, 768, and 787 MHz stops. The thread is here: Overclocking Ally - Android Forums

    The dev gives a freq chart and stuff, but not much I understand. It may be worth contacting him about how he accomplished what he has.

    Interesting...well now we know it can be done...

    Now we know it can be done on an LG Ally...which may have the same CPU, but I'm sure the rest of the architecture is different. It may be a step in a positive direction, but think of it this way. If I take the exact same (and I mean same..pop it out of 1 PC and into another) 2.4ghz amd phenom processor and toss it into an asus mobo, I may be able to clock it to 3.6ghz. Toss it into a foxconn, and I might be able to only get it up to 2.8 before it becomes unstable.

    My point is, there is a lot more to OCing than just what the CPU is capable of. You have to look at the hardware as a whole.

    That all being said...I hope the ally being OC'd does help out and allow just a bit more to be squeezed out of my pixi! If not though, I am still left with a very capable phone....especially if 1.4.5 ever is released for it anyway!

    I am sure the folks at webos internals already knew about the lg ally as android central is a sister site. If not, I sure hope they can learn from it and make it work on the pixi!

    Thanks for the pointer - this has opened up a new avenue of investigation, which codecrumb is exploring : Twitter

    are my dreams coming true? Another donation will be on it's way!!! Can't wait to test it!
  19. #39  
    if this happens I will be firing my Pixi back up. I dearly miss it.
