Wow, what a difference a kernel makes, well that and under volting! Experimenting with Talon kernel, overclocked to 1.2Ghz and under volted at most frequencies. 12 hours uptime and still 77%.

Glad to hear about the battery life. I tried Talon's kernel and it was slower than Speedmod even overclocked.

Speaking of battery life, my SGS is at 4% after 1 day, 15 hours, 38 minutes (and some seconds - I forget) which points to 40 hours on a charge. So safe to say that JPV is better battery-wise than JVH. And it needed to be.

The Sensation got a major hammering today with basically everything on for most of the time and I ran it flat in 8 hours and 5 minutes.

2.3.3.

 The first proper test is still to come and I'm intensely interested in how it will compare with the Galaxy.

Tomorrow, as the poets say, is a whole 'nother day. Much to be learned. Much to be shared.






Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Now using Galaxy S3. Eagerly awaiting release of the Note 3.

Speedmod K15H-T12 has not solved my problem. I just woke my phone out of coma just now (takes 10 seconds to hold down the power button).

I see you are having the same issue lokhor?

Not happy!

Yeah I might go back to T8B as that didn't have the problem

Hmm, I'm not sure what to try next, but if you say T8 has been trouble-free, I might consider that too.

well I'm going to flash back unless he has released a new version this afternoon

I think the issue is with deep idle which was disabled in T8B, not T8

Since I flashed to ZSJV5 2.3.3 with Speedmod k15g kernel, I am having problem with the time and date being set back to default 01/01/2005 and 13:00 after changing to my spare battery once the previous one was fully charged.

Is anyone else having this issue? Never had this problem on 2.2.1.

I realised I had not posted this to the correct forum - so moderators please remove the post in Android.


I want to tell you about my new Rom which offers blazing fast performance, SIP over wifi and 3g and staggering battery duration.

I have tried them all lately. Cyanogenmod 7, Insanity 014 (cm7) Miui 1.6.3 and the international Miui (both also CM7). Plus all the variations on stock JVH/JVP  Roms on XDA.

I then tried Romkitchen.org and using it rolled my own rom with Touchwiz 4, and all the useful tools available with that kitchen. I then flashed a theme by JKay - see  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1037157

JKay had kindly updated the themes resources for JVP themes to enable SIP over wifi and 3g. Don't forget to choose a JVP theme if you use JVP in Romkitchen

Instructions:

You must be on some form of Gingerbread Rom with bootloaders.  You must be able to get into download mode. 

I used Ficeto's Rom to start, which you can get http://www.multiupload.com/PFPFZYNA6N . I flashed it with Hiemdall which does not brick phones like Odin does (I have bricked two requiring the resistor modified connector to get them back). For Hiemdall you must totally unpack the archive (use winrar for that). You can then put each part in the appropriate Heimdall slot. Its easy. Don't forget to use the .pit file and select repartition

Assuming you don't stay with Ficeto, go to Romkitchen.org  and start cooking! 

Select Galaxy and go to generator. Under Base Rom choose JVP, and wipe or no wipe (that's up to you). 
Under Kernel choose the Chainfire kernel (havent tried the Talon one yet). For those who like Kernel flashing they all work but you are back to Hiemdall to get rid of Tegrak. There is a convenient kernel flashing tool in the apps. Remember , backup first!

IMPORTANT. Under Modem choose BUJP5 if you are Vodafone. I'm not sure which for Telecom.
Under apps choose as many as you want. Pull in all the utilities for now. Under themes choose JVP stock

Generate!

Download the following:

A new gps.conf http://www.darkyrom.com/community/index.php?threads/guide-gps-quickest-fix-solution.2022/ (if you want good gps)

A VNZ csc file http://www.bitstream.co.nz/samsung/vnz.rar

If you are using Touchwiz 4, try upgrading to the better modded one http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=13435895&postcount=1

Im sorry the VNZ.rar is not an installable zipfile.  Unpack it and copy the VNZ folder to the phone.

Put the resultant zips on the phone and then reboot to clockwork mod by pressing up-home-on in the usual manner. Select install zip from sd card and navigate to the zip and install away. Install the generated file first and reboot. Don't bother to set the phone up (I guess you will have to register google to get what's next).

Install Super Manager from market. Enable root on it in settings and then copy the VNZ folder to /system/csc. 

Use Nitrality tools set set the csc to VNZ. The phone will reboot and after that you can set it up.

Once all is good use the installed Quickboot app to go to recover and make a backup. Then you can apply the new JKay theme (or any other JVP theme) zipfile. Occasionally this seems to break some apps and you will have to restore the backup. 

Once all is good then do the following if you want great battery duration: 

Install the CFroot addon. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=591080&d=1304947623) and use it to select conservative cpu governing. You might also select to change to ext4 lagfix if you want. With that I get Quadrant 2500 after a couple of runs before changing the cpu governing

Install Juice Defender. Its great. One caveat is that when you use sip (available under settings/call settings/Internet call settings if you flash a JKay or similar theme) you wont be able to receive calls when the screen is blacked as data is them turned off to save energy unless downloads are in progress.

Sit back and marvel how your phone does not drain the battery when you are not using it!! I get at least a day and a half now even when I use it a lot. I even went to bed with it nearly flat and when I got up it was still nearly flat, maybe 1% down.

If you want far better gps in New Zealand, use Super manager to copy gps.conf to /system/etc/ replacing the old gps.conf. Reboot.

I will post my rom if you want.

I did this initially but I flashed JV1 modem which is the one that VF NZ have in their Gingerbread rom.
Even though I'm with 2 degrees, I found it an improvement over JP5.

There seems to be something wrong with deodexed JVP-based roms which is causing the phone to coma. I am very tempted to try stock JVP because I am totally fed up with checking my phone and finding I can't wake it.

Where can one get their hands on the JV1 modem?  XDA is so messed up trying to find stuff, didn't see it in Perkas stash and a quick google failed me also.  I wonder if it's an improvement over BUJV3.

Dowwnload JVH from Samfirmware.

Looks like there's another 2.3.4 release that's been leaked... XXJVQ

Early discussion and hex comparison with JVP shows little difference apart from a few areas.  Watch this space!

Differences taken from XDA:
HEX Differences between JVP and JVQ:


  • absolutely no change in /system/bin

  • absolutely no change in /system/etc

  • seems there are some changes in framework.jar and services.jar (services.jar being suspected for the charge bug some experience)

  • changes in /system/lib:

    • libandroid_runtime.so

    • libfmradio_jni.so

    • libsavsac.so

    • libsurfaceflinger.so

    • libsurfaceflinger_client.so

    • libwebcore.so

    • libXt9core.so



  • /system/app (main applications): considerable changes in:

    • Browser

    • Email

    • Gallery

    • MMS

    • SystemUI

    • Google*.apk

    • Maps

    • Swype

    • Talk

    • Voice search
