mpdecision and thermald are built into the kernel
Starting with the releases on 15 January 2013, mpdecision and thermald are built into the kernel. This means you have to disable them in your ROM, unless you are running the latest Synergy versions.
To disable mpdecision in the ROM, edit init.qcom.post_boot.sh and before the two lines that say "start mpdecision", add a "#", no quotes.
To disable thermald in the ROM, edit init.qcom.post_fs.sh and before the line that says "/system/bin/sh /system/etc/init.qcom.thermald_conf.sh", add a "#", no quotes.
