CWM doesn't want to boot. will investigate further.

Kickass kernel improves the phone a lot. but the v6 supercharger doesn't. because V6 is just a alternative Ram management tool, but you don't need that when you already have 1 gig of Ram.
here is a link to the kickass kernelizer (and a few other things -.^ ) : [url="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=18703418&postcount=5021"]http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=18703418&postcount=5021[/url]

So the "rooting manual" works, thanks.

But on my device, "Rom Toolbox" in general and cpu governor "ondemand" in detail are very unstable. Some system crashes, so I uninstalled Rom Toolbox.

more people set ondemand without problem...i try more apk to set the governor and [b]always[/b] get crash and reboot...

After more test i find an half solution: with SETCPU i set ondemand max 1000 min 500 without problem! if i set the min frequency at minus i have crash, it's strange!
My phone don't support underclock?!?!?!

try my frequency

two questions about the guide:

1) USB debugging must be enabled?
2) During the procedure, the phone must be switched on?

thanks
