So, I’ve compiled a new overclockable kernel off xda users’s NeoPhyTe.x360 SG2 kernel, this should give you better battery life and also performance when you needed.
NOTE: This is only for Gingerbread and very old kernel, I’ve stopped developing this kernel so please try another kernel!!! In other words, DO NOT USE!
For those of you who weren’t getting good battery life and also wasn’t getting performance, this kernel should help.
At stock 1.2Ghz (with no setCPU), you can get your performance back, getting like near 3400 on Quadrant without overclocking.
*Note – As always, this is experimental kernel, flash it at your risk and don’t take the battery out while you use ODIN!!!
Can be overclocked to 1.6Ghz usig setCPU.
Long battery life with 500-1200 Mhz ondemand (the best to get low batt drain, should drain lower in sleep)
Lowest maximum freq blocked to 400mhz (so if you put 200-200, it will run 200-400, locked due to better performance)
Performance increases without overclocking.
Download kernel tar file here and flash with Odin:
UPDATE: Download version 2 (file name with v2) as it comes with CWM Recovery!
