So, I managed to pick up a Nexus 7 (2012) 32GB from NCIX on a boxing day sale for $129.99 which i thought was an absolute steal. I bought the 2012 version because, well, I don't planet on running "hardcore" games and whatnot. Just things like GTA and stuff. However, I'm always out for a little extra performance. I was told that there are kernels out there, and roms etc that can make this thing a pretty decent amount faster, as well as the ability to overclock it.

I'm not an android newb per say, I have a galaxy s3 which is thoroughly customized via CM10 and whatnot. I am however a Nexus newb:P I don't know the nexus 7 scene at all.

So, basically, I want my device to be as fast as possible whether that be from a custom kernel and rom or whatever, and to know how to overclock it.

Thanks

I would recommend learning adb and fastboot. They will help you flash and root your device. Also, I would stay away from toolkits.

There are good tutorials on this in this section

Maybe you can start out by learning more about kernels, Governors and io Schedulers.
Check this link for info about these: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1369817
Then maybe you will have a better idea of "what" you want and "how" you can get there!
Hope this helps!
