Instructional Thread Helps Users Learn and Tune ICS Kernels

You’ve rooted your device, installed a custom recovery, and flashed a custom kernel. You’ve even tuned your kernel, after have read through the kernel tweaking guide we covered roughly five months ago. However, you recently also upgraded your device to Ice Cream Sandwich, only to realize that while ICS-compatible kernels are largely the same, there are several notable differences. Kernel tweaks you were used to in the past had changed somewhat.

Extending his previous instructional thread, XDA Recognized Contributor droidphile has created a follow up thread to explain the differences between ICS kernels and those of previous Android versions. And just as before, he explains how to tweak the kernel tunables in order to eke out the most performance and functionality.

The scope of the thread is just as large as that of its predecessor. As seen in the thread’s table of contents:

Post 1: Understanding all the Kernel Tunables
Post 2: Exclusive Features – Dual Booting and BLN Breathing
Post 3: All New Governor – Pegasusq. Parameter Explanations, Sample Tweaks, How to Tweak
Post 4: Kmemhelper Binary Interface – Enjoy Virtual Kernel Hacking
Post 5: Miscellaneous FAQs on Kernel from Different Angles

Those wishing to dive a little deeper should grab a nice beverage and head over to the original thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
