The sbromwich series of kernels are my kernels with all current webos-internals testing patches applied, plus my own patches.

Patches applied for 1.4.1-23

  • Debug settings removed from default kernel build
  • Compile kernel with explicit cortex-a8 tuning flags for gcc
  • Tweak prcm power manager to more explicitly wait for power set calls to return, remove debug cruft, and add Wait For Interrupt instruction if a prcm setting attempt fails
  • Enable preempt kernel

Known problems

  • Pre can take some extra time to respond to certain activities, especially when waking up; lags of up to 2 seconds can be experienced on wakeup. The alternative is a reboot, which will take even longer.


  • User interactivity latency should be lower (time to respond to keypresses, etc).
  • Fewer powerd wakeups allowing the system to sleep longer.
