tried it today and it was running well enough. nice benchmarks on browsermark with 67k on performance kernel. had it clocked at 1.8ghz, both cores on, and it didn't freeze on me.
however, battery died way too fast for my liking. i put it to sleep at 46% and about 3 hrs later when i turned it on, it was at 15%.
thats crazy it kills your battery i was thinking the same thing so i put mine back on 1.7 and i have been on it since and still got alot of battery left my lil girl was on it as well still got half a battery try 1.7 see how you like it (let me know)
Like: both cores are consistently load sharing, best performance at 1.7ghz over F15C and Warthog, touchpad is more responsive overall
Dislike: slightly lower battery life (but that is expected), more heat (also expected), still early in development
tried both F4 Phantom and F15C Eagle both only uses both core when first installed and turn on around 15 mins later 2nd core turns off.. only 1 core runs.. even now when turn of and turn on only 1 single core works...2nd core has issue will not run full time.. benchmark is at 66K
the TP has an asynchronious dual core CPU. meaning it will load one to its max usage, and use a second one as an offload buffer. the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation have near identical CPUs. And here in Android world we are now working with both cores on at all times. its a matter of time before it drifts to the TrollPad... (i call it that due to its elusive nature.)
Well I do not know where you guys are getting your Warthog, Phantom or F15C kernals as all I see in Preware is Uberkernal and my TP is updated to 3.0.2 and the preware app was updated few days ago. Also Uberkernal does use both cores, but it is only used as and when the TP requires the extra power as stated by Tide88. However if you change the profile in govnah from ondemandtcl to performance, both cores are used consistently, though the battery life is reduced. I leave it at ondemandtcl and the TP does seem slightly faster, with slight glitches or lags. And patches installed are, muffle system logging, reduce dropped packet thing, unthrottle downloads, remove ripple and my brightness is usually set to 10%...
Overall my TP lasts atleast 1.5days on sleep but if used, as I watch manga's at night (Naruto Shippuden :P), the battery is drained within 4-5hrs...
When I started overclocking I was excited about F15C but my TP just locks up on that kernel. I went to F4 Phantom because it is full time dual core and can go to 1.8, I have tried the ondemand tcl and usually just end up going to performance mode and am quite happy, usually at 1.8/1.8 or 1.8/1.7 in govnah, I don't set a minimum so that when its not in use it will slide down to lower output. It's been great and really responsive. The only issues I've noticed lately is that with the 3.04 the accelerometer seems little off, but there are threads out regarding this so I'm sure they will fix it. I've tried a few of the other kernels, and I might try warthog kernel to see if there is a difference in the sound quality, some people have suggested that since 3.04 the sound crackles sometimes, and their 3.04 update for warthog has gotten that fixed. Don't know if it's an issue because I usually have the sound low but am curious.
