    I've created a couple small shell scripts to turn smartreflex 550 on and off
    from terminal app (so I don't have to uninstall anything if the phone
    becomes unstable) and it seems ok so far.

    It's pretty basic.
    One shell script I call
    sr550on
    Code:
    echo -n 1 > /sys/power/sr_vdd1_autocomp
    echo -n 1 > /sys/power/sr_vdd2_autocomp
    echo 550000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed
    echo 550000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed
    and the second
    sr550off
    Code:
    echo -n 0 > /sys/power/sr_vdd1_autocomp
    echo -n 0 > /sys/power/sr_vdd2_autocomp
    echo 500000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed
    echo 500000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed
    I just fire off terminal app and run
    sh sr550on
    to activate it.

    The Pre's stock boot code sets it back to 500Mhz so if it ever becomes
    unstable I just reboot, and it's happy again.

    I guess my problem is I don't know how to write a shell script...

    A shell script is just a text file with a list of
    commands. You're looking at em in their
    entirety. Copy those lines into each of two files,
    put em at the root of your usb drive if you
    want, and access em from command line
    shell in Terminal app like

    sh /media/internal/sr550on
    or
    sh /media/internal/sr550off

    sh is the name of the command shell interpretter
    and it just executes the commands in the file
    as though they had been typed in one at a time.

    Sweet! Im learning!

    I have a few more questions though.

    What do I save the files as? sr550off.sh?

    Placing the files in my usb partition is a simple drag and drop no?

    When in terminal I type: sh sr550off?

    And not once has anyone actually posted authentic OEM-issued statements on the matter.

    Sigh....

    These patches should of NEVER been in Preware.
    we've been scaling the cpu months before. theres enough silicon, calm down.

    Can call it whatever you want, with whatever extension you want.
    Unix (Linux in this case) doesn't care about extensions at all,
    only that you use the full file name when you reference it.

    Placing the files in my usb partition is a simple drag and drop no?
    Presumably yes. I created them a different way in a different place.
    You should be able to just drag them from your desktop into
    the root of the Pre USB drive, and then reference that directory
    via /media/internal from the terminal app.

    When in terminal I type: sh sr550off?
    Only if that's what the file is called. If you called it sr550off.sh
    then you'd need to use sh sr550off.sh
    Note that when you start terminal you're probably *not* in
    /media/internal which is why I said to do it the way I did above.
    sh /media/internal/sr550on
    sh /media/internal/sr550off

    Excellent! Now if i may, how can I put the files to my root folder so that I don't have to type the additional media/internal?

    Additionally, how can I tell if SR is running?

    Okay, so I finally ran into problems with this patch.

    I'm on vacation, so I wanted my AIM and Yahoo messenger accounts on my phone (I usually don't have them since I don't like how the Pre handles them). I've also had SR600 running perfectly flawless for a couple weeks or so, but when I added my messenger accounts my phone didn't like that one bit.

    It burned thru my battery charge and started locking up. I let the phone sit and cool down and then uninstalled SR600 and then deleted my AIM and YM! accounts. The phone is now back to normal.

    The only problem I have now is that I can't reinstall SR600, and EPR won't even work now! (IPKG errors for both)

    Do I have to Doctor this thing? I'd rather not, but when the next update comes out I guess I'll have to.

    I have a fix. Hold on a minute.

    To remove SmartReflex:

    Use webOS Quick Install's delete file function to delete the following file.
    /etc/event.d/powersave-smartreflex

    To remove Upclock:

    Run this in the Linux Commandline:
    echo "500000" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq
  13. #93  
    mount -o remount, rw /
    rm /etc/event.d/powersave*

    Did those, but it still won't let me install SR600 thru WebOS QI... I can't access Preware at the moment because of a weak signal (no EVDO)

    terminal app command that manually removes sr.

    Root directory was mounted read-only so you need remount it with RW before you can remove anything from /etc/event.d. This is why you can't install the new patch because WebOS QI can't delete anything from a read-only FS.

    btw: don't forget to shutdown -r now, so phone can reboot.

    You could try using the shell script method we've been discussing over the last page or
    so. Those shell scripts can be easily created by hand through the terminal app (I did).

    BTW, I doubt your battery problems had anything to do with SR600. If
    you just installed Y!M then it brought in Yahoo Contacts as well, and that
    is a known battery sucker.

    I need help! I have SR550 installed. I want to give 600mhz another shot. Is there a command I can enter in the terminal to change from 550 to 600 or do I need to uninstall 550 and install 600?

    Edit the file /etc/event.d/powersave-smartreflex
    change the value 550000 to 600000 wherever you find it.
    Save reboot.

    For me, sr600 locked the phone several times.
    Running the equiv of sr550 from my shell scripts has been stable.
