    How stable is this overclocking now? Will it work on Pre too? I have a few people i work with I would like to try it on

    the pre already has a much faster over clock than the pixi. Up to 1.2 gHz I believe

    codecrumb and rob,

    Would having lumberjack installed also help out...or is that just for apps? I don't mind greping through the logs myself, but maybe others might find that tool useful to submit any errors they are encountering?

    It is unstable experimental alpha testing. Do not instal unless you are willing to have your phone data completely wiped at any time without warning. Seriously.

    we need to have an 'iron fist' animation for everything Rod says, cause that's how it feels when he says anything. Like an iron fist, to the face...

    So I tested loading time on my pixi vs my wife's stock. She's only got the 3 apps that I installed on it, so mostly stock stuff.
    Email took about the same.
    Moo took same
    weather channel was a bit faster w/OC
    ABCs for kids took same
    google maps was faster w/OC
    web pages loaded about the same
    camera was about 2-3 seconds faster w/OC
    and finally ancient pond was about half a second faster on OC. Not a huge improvement in load times...but what I think there would really be an improvement on is framerate for some of the more graphically intense apps.

    Yes I also notice compressing in compcache is a lot faster vs stock clocks. The actual switching between apps that have been swapped into compcache and back out of it and also opening many apps at once is (demanding more on the fly compcache compression) is MUCH faster than stock clock.

    So there are benefits...the only downfalls thus far is the ui lag people are experiencing and some devices "seem" to be going the speed OC'd or not..

    I too am running into the UI lag on a Sprint Pixi.

    Thanks Pez. My apps tested were email, sms, calendar, browser, angry birds. If you switch your overclocked settings to ondemand the stock will win on all. Keeping the cpu speed fixed at 768 runs similar to the stock. (your findings) I found stock to be a little faster. I am not sure if we are really overclocking our devices. Either way I love my pixi and hope we can get to the bottom of this.

    there is no doubt that we are OCing. Look at CPU benchmarks and there is a vast improvement. Do this test btwn stock and your OC, get webosmark from the app catalog and run it on both. You'll see which is higher!
  11. #351  
    thanks again for running the test pez. I notice the sunspider tests are faster on overclocked pixi. I also notice that the stock pixi is faster at opening apps than overclocked ondemandtcl 768 max. Also notice very similar speed when running 768 fixed performance vs stock performance. (i believe this was your finding as well)
    I am not going to beat a dead horse with my "speed test" but if we are overclocking our cpu frequencies by 28% more than stock we should notice.

    Yeah I agree we need to get it running smoothly for all before release. But benchmarks themselves definitely show an improvement. I hit 342 in webos marks. Stock couldn't even touch that.
    Also sunspider I have seen as low as 20.05 seconds on OC.
    But the apparent smoothness needs to be figured out. It seems I am the only one in wanting a kernel only modded for OC and compcache module...no other changes.

    So far that sort of kernel has not beem released but I believe it's where we need to start!

    Can someone please send me a pm with the webos marks app. Cant find it in the catalog?
    Thanks in advance

    It's in the beta feed. Look for it in Preware with the Palm beta feed enabled.

    Wow, I didn't realise my short notes came across that way. Replying on forums is something where I can't spend a lot of time on each message, and is often done on the phone during idle minutes.

    Got it...Thanks Rod. BTW I appreciate your short notes and I get them as helpful.

    Hey Rod, are you guys over at webos-internals working on a kernel internally for the pixi or something? Because it seems like warthogs is only one available that we are testing. Or are you guys waiting for concrete results from him, or working in tandem w/ him?

    Wonderin whats goin on =)
  18. #358  
    agree with stu about your posts rod. In fact, you should stop with those posts. The next person that asks about stability and/or where to get and install the kernel, just respond with...ITS ALREADY BEEN POSTED, FIGURE IT OUT!!
  19. #359  
    codecrumb is a member of the webos internals team. Check out the kernel changelogs in the git repo. You'll see some commits in there by rod as well, and from other posts I've seen, it looks like codecrumb is getting plenty of help from others.

    codecrumb is a member of the WebOS Internals kernel team. As is unixPsycho, myself, sbromwich, ka6sox, etc.

    It's all one team. The different kernels are used for testing different things.

    I personally am currently working on how to get UberKernel/Pixi to boot at stock and then overclock under sticky profile control, so that the 7 principles of kernel design and packaging (http://forums.precentral.net/webos-i...packaging.html) can be met for a UberKernel public release.

    All the kernels are built from a common source code repository (http://git.webos-internals.org/?p=ke....git;a=summary) and build and release system (http://git.webos-internals.org/?p=pr....git;a=summary).
