This is a kernel issue. Same effect with all kernel?

To Oma

Hello,

I used the software suitable for the battery (battery monitor widget pro). How can I provide you with information related to the battery?
I think I have a battery problem because I went from 70% to 1% very quickly.

Also I read on another forum that a new version improves the battery.
I put the link http://pan.baidu.com/s/1kTzHJkr

Yes,

The device boots when connecting the charger in all kernel versions.

Will you make a new release based on the same code riely 1.4 uses and that kiko95 linked to above?

Hi Oma,

I'm happily using your ROM and it works perfectly fine for me (besides battery drain) - according to statements in other forums like Freaktab there is already a new version of the official PIPO P8 ROM available (Pipo firmware dated 11/6/14 #177).

Any chance to get a new version of your ROM based on that version ?

Thanks a million !

Jo

EDIT:

post below is obsolet in the meantime as I went ahead in a try-and error approach and I have just installed the new kernel - perfect ! My P8 works even better - the smoothness increased to what I can tell so far with kernel #177. Battery drain I can't tell that much s it is still charging.

================================================

Perfect - thanks, Oma! 

Regarding installation of the kernel: do I need to

- install just the new kernel with RKAndroidTool or

- install the new kernel with the loader with RKAndroidTool or

- install the whole ROM including the new kernel? 

Thanks  for your support!

Double-post, but I have to report an error reg. battery drain in combination with the gravity sensor. Apps like lux or raumfeld controller  which are using the sensor produce some heavy battery drain. How can we resolve ?

I have stock ROM but I noticed horizontal scroll is laggy. It slows down every centimeter when I scroll horizontally. I tested it with drawing app and when I draw parallel lines it draws zig-zag lines and it looks like the screenshot. It seems like touch has vertical bands with different response. Anyone has the same problem?

In the meantime I have figured out the root cause of the battery drain: it is the UltraStick modem with causes the higher consumption. 

It was already factory installed an as soon as I have taken out the stick, the P8 was able to enter deep sleep mode.

All - another interesting finding: I have switched to the ART framework and guess what, the P8 turned into a very performant little beast with an extremely smooth UI

Thanks Oma !

 

I do have the following issues with the ROM as follows (kernel #177 *and* #194):

- the app Magine freezes after some minutes (not seen on other tablets/smartphones in the same wlan)
- last but not least - the P8 does not wake up from deep sleep and needs reboot

Thanks again !

Jo

EDIT: I am still wondering, if 5GHz WLAN is implemented at all as announced. I don't see any 5GHz WLAN compared to my other 5GHz WLAN devices ...

Deep sleep issues are always kernel/hardware related. Wifi depends on the wifi chip. Let me have a dmesg log.
