Hn.. got a few Trickster settings for ya. These'll go for most ROM/kernel combos. Had one of the screens with the dingy yellow-whites.
So an aged amoled (a year is good enough to fit in such a catagory tbh) might benefit most from these.

Contrast: -7
Gamma: +7

Gamma Offsets-
Red: 0
Green: 0
Blue: 7

Multipliers-
Red: 217
Green: 207
Blue: 327

If using a kernel with Trinity colors (since there's no Gamma control) , Contrast Offset should be -24 and Red & Green in Multipliers should be lowered 20 points.
If using mpokang, up Red & Green by 30 points.

Note: If you're using a kernel that has UV controls, and an Auxiliary (I think it was called) section where the MMC and Regulator stuff goes.. there's one control that affects the screen display. It's default voltage is around 3200 I think. Anyways, if lowered to 2850, Gamma/Contrast and such will be heavily affected. These are my Trickster settings after undervolting this... anomaly:

Contrast: Low as possible
Gamma: +10

Gamma Offsets-
Red: 4
Green: 4
Blue: 11

Multipliers-
Red: 278
Green: 264
Blue: 378

All Multiplier values can be lowered or raised relative to each other, depending how much brightness one prefers.

Hope this helps a bit!

Wow, thanks!

Can't believe this worked out so well:

Contrast: -24
Gamma: 0
Gamma Offsets-
Red: 0
Green: 0
Blue: 7
Multipliers-
Red: 197
Green: 187
Blue: 327

And just as I was about to finally give in to upgrading when last week I was comparing my GN display next to my bro's N5 and yes I know it's not even a close/fair match up, but I never thought my display was really that bad, it was like completely yellow.

Now the whites really look white even when putting my GN up next to my 60" Sharp quattron 240hz LED TV set at full backlight.
LOL

Thanks guys!, I can't test those options completely cuz I'm on official CM10.2 and I just have 2 types of settings
*Colour Calibration R-G-B from 0% to 100%
*Gamma correction R-G-B from -20 to 20
What I should do?

Are you using the option in settings? If yes then download trickster mod from the play store. If you still cant set any color calibration just flash a custom kernel.

Yes, I'm using the option in settings (Official CM10.2)

Trickster Mod has the color option but just the pro version :/

I'm facing some problems with CM10.2 (insane battery drain from "phone", inclusive in Idle mode, more that 40% in just one night :/...) so, Im thinking switch again to stock rom, maybe 4.1, so, there's some good kernel for 4.1 that include color settings?, Im tired of 4.3 problems...really!

Thanks!

I think for now I prefer using your settings, they seem like a better compromise especially for a user like myself that has never changed any display color settings before, it still gives me the slightest warm whites, but not at all yellowish like it had been previously.

Guess my eyes need to get use to not seeing completely yellow whites first, then perhaps the ultra white settings I previously tested will be easier to view.

BTW
I'm running:
4.1.2 PA 2.57 ROM
Zen V10 kernel
