Those are performance tweaks, not batt. They make a HUGE difference in performance if set right though.

This is what I set mine up as
Code:
<br />
vm.dirty_radio = 90<br />
vm.dirty_background_ratio = 55<br />
vm.vfs_cache_pressure = 5<br />
vm.oom_kill_allocating_task = 1<br />
vm.min_free_kbytes = 4096<br />
vm.swappiness = 0<br />
kernel.sched_latency_ns = 500000<br />
kernel.sched_min_granularity = 1000000<br />
kernel.sched_wakeup_granularity_ns = 1000000<br />
vm.panic_on_oom = 2<br />
kernel.panic = 5<br />
Thats optimized based on Imoseyon and Drod2169's findings and much discussion with Derek (drod). I would recommend using a higher vm.vfs_cache_pressure value unless you are willing to set up a crontab to dump caches pretty frequently. Imoseyon suggested using "vm.vfs_cache_pressure = 20" on his blog unless you setup a crontab. I set my crontab for every 6 hours, rather aggressive but I have never had any problems with it. This page explains how to set up the crontab and in the comments in how to set it to drop caches.

Most of those values are explained on Imoseyon's blog if anyone is interested in the reasons why they are set like that

I also use a rather extensive init.d system but thats a topic for another thread/post.
Angel can I just go with these with cache_press=20 since I'm too lazy to setup chron? thanks!

Okay I just flashed this and set my max clock speed to 800. We will see how it goes. I was already getting pretty good batt life to begin with. Free juice is always a good thing.

That was on a homemade version of the GB-based CM7GB... it has all of the changes in 10-06 build, but my build environment has a couple customizations, such as the sysctl.conf gets built in, and I tweaked build.prop a bit to remove the minimum touch event delay, and increase dalvik heap size a bit... all doable with the 10-06 build, root explorer and/or adb and some knowhow.
Trying your sysctl values. What do you set dalvik heap too?

I like to be complete =P

Also, I like to tweak as much as I can. It gives me something to do when I'm bored as hell and cant have my phone not working. Sysctl and init.d are relatively safe things to test in those situations.

This is my full init.d/sysctl + cron tweaks in a flashable zip if anyone wants: http://x13thangelx.s....net/tweaks.zip
DO NOT UNCOMMENT THE OC SCRIPT IN INIT.D. It will cause problems, trust me. It was a wip but I kinda gave up on it. Its included if anyone wants to mess with it for lulz though.

Okay I cleaned out Jakebites and Smartass and flashed your .zip Brother. Going to give SetCPU progressive underclocking another shot now.

After various experiments shall we say, including progressive underclocking with SetCPU (ondemand) its:

x13thangel's tweaks.zip + smartass with max clock at 800 ftw......

It would be interesting to try progressive underclocking with a 5 slot ver of Smartass and SetCPU actually...

Quandrant. I think me and nuclearmistake both pulled off a couple in the 2600 range. I don't remember what tweaks I used thou other than we had to disable JIT to do it. I need to take notes sometimes... Grin....

Speaking of Quandrant on the OTA or any de blurred Rom like apex or liberty watch it when it hits database writes on the file i/I tests. It will lag there and jank the score down for some reason.

Yea, I easily get 12hrs on a charge now, where I was lucky to get 8 before. Conservative was a blessing.

Wait Bro, you are running Conservative now and not Smartass?

I'm not on CM at the moment due to the camcorder issues so.....
