    Just wanted to chime in and say thanks for the unbelievable work that's going on here. Just made a webos-internals donation. Hack on!

    I believe that unixpsycho is also the main developer for UberKernal.

    From this post:

    "unixpsycho is the main developer of the Uber-Kernel overclocking features, and is contributing other features to the Uber-Kernel too."

    So, he did the SuperKernal and then moved on to the UberKernal.

    2. When coming back from screen off govnah shows my cpu is at 500mhz but no matter how many apps i open or what i do it never goes back up to 800mhz even though i have it set to.

    3. Does govnah have to be on the entire time or can i set it and then close the card?

    Thanks for all your hard work!
    I'll give it a go from what a have done / read so far...

    1 - Reboot and should be fine after that.

    2 - That appears to be a known issue. Something to do with brightness levels I think.

    3 - No, do not keep Govnah running. Just there to set the way you want it, check temp, or compile data from the graphs.. In fact if you keep it open, it will eventually use up too much memory at this time.

    1. Rebooted several times n no go for some reason

    2. Really? Ok i'll mess with the settings & check it out

    Thanks for the advice

    i hate this kernel. sure, it's nice to have a ui to controll it, but since i installed this my reboot rate (probatly lua crash) increase a lot! (from max 1 in a week to 5-8 a day!) Superkernel from caj2008 was much, much, MUCH (!!!!!!!!) better than this crap.... so, thats it....

    I've switch between com.unixpsycho.webos141_800MHzkernel_armv7 and UberKernal and to me it seems like the old 800mhz kernel seems to make my menus faster even though Uber is set to the same speed. I've switched back and the snappyness? seems to have come back even after restarting Uber a couple times to make sure.

    I know the uberkernel doesn't stick after a phone reboot, but how about a luna restart?

    Rod and Marco, thank you!!!!

    I had been running 800 MHz sh, and Alpha tested the newest version of SPK. Speedwise they were fine, but I was noticing issues with 1.4.1.1. Random restarts, stuttering, freezing.

    I installed Uber-Kernal 3G and the Govnah about three hours ago and I have to say: fabulous! Thus far, no random restarts, stuttering or freezing. I am using the Screenstate setting and it is working perfectly as shown by checking it over the two hours in Terminal (cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state), except if I turn the phone on while on the TS - sometimes it stays at 500, sometimes it changes to 800. If I lift it off the TS it comes on at 800 consistently.

    My battery life has already improved: 5% DPH with moderate use, as opposed to 7-9% previously. Temperature on the TS is 25 CPU, and 33 battery over two hours. I use BU, but have always had my screen minimum set to 10, so I seem to be avoiding the glitches that low screen brightness can cause.

    I haven't run this while streaming, yet, but will let you know what I find when I do.

    In short, this is working great on my Pre, for my needs...other overclocking solutions may work better for other folks. YMMV.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!!!!!!

    Try uninstalling Uber-Kernel, installing the 1.4.1 kernel, then reinstalling Uber-Kernel. This seems to have fixed issues for several people.

    I guess not.

    Yea i uninstalled the uber and reinstalled it and it works now. Thanks!

    FYI, I believe the default is something like 7, and you need Reduce Minimum to bring it down to zero.

    I don't know if anyone had answer your question.. but i would recommend first do webos doctor and start the process over.. I've been using it and got no problems with it.



    good luck.

    I 100% respect the decision to stick to the ideas and ideals of making UberKernel *not* do stuff automatically, but in the end, this thing is a PHONE. It should boot and Just Work(tm).

    My Linux computers (Gentoo!) sure, fiddle, script, hack, kernel boot params, whatever. Not my phone. I want my phone to boot, be fast, conserve as much power as possible, and Just Work because for 95% of my day, this is the only way people have to get in contact with me should something happen to my Son. UnixPsycho's kernels satisfy those needs Out-Of-The-Box.

    This is just my personal opinion, of course, and in no way meant to put down the efforts of all involved with this (or any other) project.


    M.
    I respect your decision. There should be a number of well-maintained alternatives for people to choose between, as not everyone has the same needs.

    The good news is that Marco has pretty much done the overclocking part of the kernel for every single overclocking solution that is available for the Palm Pre, and our eventual goal is to make all the kernels as easy to "set and forget" as the hard-coded ones are today by using fail-safe startup scripts. We just don't have the startup scripts fail-safe-enough for general distribution yet.

    Here's what Oil (who does all the Govnah front-end UI work) is working on at the moment:

    My phone has not crashed in the day and 1/2 I have been using Uber-Kernel. I had been using SPK for some time, during which I did have luna restarts.

    One of the most noticable things is that with SPK, pressing the power button would not instantly turn on the screen, or it would turn on "slow". Sometimes, it would not turn on but restart. I can also say that programs open quicker and things are snappier with the Uber-Kernel.

    Since I have Verizon, maybe the difference in performance is due to Uber-Kernel using the 1.4.1.1 kernel and the SPK using the 1.4 kernel. And, with Verizon, the 1.4.1.1 seems to have corrected the double-typing.

    I'm using the Screenstate setting and check it with WebOSQI command line. The speed increase from 500 t0 800 is basically instant. When screen is off, it is 500 and as soon as you turn it on, it is 800.

    I don't know why some others have had problems, but I'm extremely satisfied with Uber-Kernel.

    Yes, there is nothing in Uber-Kernel that is intentionally designed to fix that, but some people are reporting that different governors have different effects on that webOS bug. It seems to be quite device-dependent.

    One of the most noticable things is that with SPK, pressing the power button would not instantly turn on the screen, or it would turn on "slow". Sometimes, it would not turn on but restart. I can also say that programs open quicker and things are snappier with the Uber-Kernel.
    I think this also is related to governor choice.

    Since I have Verizon, maybe the difference in performance is due to Uber-Kernel using the 1.4.1.1 kernel and the SPK using the 1.4 kernel. And, with Verizon, the 1.4.1.1 seems to have corrected the double-typing.
    It has been confirmed by Palm that the 1.4.1.1 kernel keyboard driver was updated to correct the double-typing error, so we will take credit for this one (simply by using the correct kernel version)

    I'm using the Screenstate setting and check it with WebOSQI command line. The speed increase from 500 t0 800 is basically instant. When screen is off, it is 500 and as soon as you turn it on, it is 800.
    The frequency change is actually done *inside* the LCD display driver code, so it is indeed instantaneous.

    I don't know why some others have had problems, but I'm extremely satisfied with Uber-Kernel.
    Glad to hear that.

    We don't expect a 100% success rate, as overclocking is very device-dependent, so there will always be devices on which overclocking simply will never work properly - that's the nature of the beast when operating a device outside of it's guaranteed specification limits.
