Firstly, this is NOT my work. We have Geno.Kolar to thank for this kernel.

Remember nothing is 100% safe - if YOU choose to install this YOU do so at YOUR own risk - if something goes wrong it is on YOU - make a nandroid backup!


This is a custom kernel for the G300 which allows you to modify the CPU frequencies to improve performance and battery life. It should work with all ROMs based on ICS b926 or higher.

To access these additional frequencies it is recommended that you use No Frills CPU Control.

Features:

I/O schedulers
noop, cfg

Govenors
smartarseV2, interactive, conservative, userspace, powersave, ondemand, performance

Available frequencys.
122Mhz, 245Mhz, 320Mhz, 480Mhz, 600Mhz, 806Mhz, 1.008Mhz, 1.075Mhz, 1.152Mhz, 1.228Mhz, 1.266Mhz, 1.305Mhz.


Init.d support

New to V2: Memory optimisations

I'm using with infusion and it works sweet. My phone doesn't like 1.3 but 1.26 and lower are rock solid.

Im using it with infusion too and everything seems fine. With omegamoon couldnt get to 1.3 too. Still need to try with this one.

Yeah, the same. 1.26 seems the stable number on both for me.

I get the same with 1.3, yet others can clock 1.3 fine. The luck of the draw I guess... until we get voltage control at least.

That said, even 1.22 is good. A stable 22% overclock is never bad.

Does it feel any different? I mean do the apps open faster and is the general UI experience smoother?

Also will this effectively wear out your phone faster? When I use my sat nav (Sygic) things get pretty hot at the back of the phone.

In theory yes , apps and ui should be faster but only slightly noticeably, one main benefit is game play, games that lag a little become smoother , could also help satnav pages render quicker. You're 1ghz processor is now running 25 per cent faster.
As for damage to you're phone, there's people out there that don't recommended over-clocking, for me personaly my ZTE Blade has been over-clocked to death , and is two year's old this Xmas and is still running fine. That may be down to luck. The best policy is to use it only when needed which is what the governor settings help you with on apps such as" no frills cpu' e.t.c.
Or set it manualy when needed. It's a nice extra to have either way.

It will only improve situations where the CPU was at 100% utilisation. Often the CPU is not, because running processes are waiting for IO to complete - reading or writing to storage, or the network, or waiting for user input.

In such 100% situations, if the workload is fixed then it will complete sooner and should therefore not consume additional battery. If the workload is not fixed, but a game that plays until you quit, then as has been said you may get smoother gameplay as more intermediate stages can be computed or displayed. This will consume batter faster.

I set the speed to 1266MHz and the phone just froze after some time, so I'll have to do some reinstalling before trying out the 1220MHz version. Thanks anyway for this awesome kernel

I can't imagine those 40mhz are making a huge difference

That reminds me of the year when a 386DX40 motherboard and CPU came into my price range. 40MHz.

I can't seem to get hspda speeds with this kernel - my phones phone signal bar always says G. Any ideas?
