Hi friends.. this is my first post. So pardon me if I am posting in the wrong place.

I have a Swipe MTV Slash 4x tablet. In case you are wondering, its a chinese OEM tablet that has been imported & sold here in India by Swipe Telecom under their brand name.

Its based on a quadcore mediatek 8382 soc clocked at 1.3ghz & the GPU is a dual core Mali 400MP clocked at 533mhz. RAM is 1GB. Being of chinese make, the tablet came shipped with Jelly Bean 4.2.2 which is mostly stock with very little to no skinning.

I rooted the tablet very easily using Framaroot v1.9.0. I have installed Roehsoft Ram Expander & Xposed (Gravity Box module) & thus far everything is fine. I remember reading somewhere(guess wikipedia) that the mt8382 is designed for tablets & can run stable at speeds upto 1.6ghz. However since its meant for entry level & lower mid range devices, its usually underclocked to 1.2/1.3ghz out of the box.

I want to try my luck & "overclock" the cpu a bit. I am aware that the stock kernel doesn't support overclocking. So I basically have 2 options..

1. Flash a custom kernel that supports oc
2. Flash a custom ROM that ships with a kernel supporting oc, like cyanogen mod or anything else.

Here is my problem. I am unable to find a kernel or a ROM that is compatible with my device. I am aware of the risks involved in overclocking & am prepared to back up all my data & install a custom recovery before proceeding. I am also mentally prepared for the worst case scenario - a permanently bricked device.

Can somebody help me in finding a kernel for my device that supports overclocking or a custom ROM that has built in oc support?

I am attaching some screenshots that will help you in getting an idea of what device I have.

Thanks in advance
