Dear XDA,

I have an mt6589 phone and recently it just stopped detecting the network, after trying everything I realized there's no hope so i decided to use it as a phone just for games and entertainment. It's rooted.

I turned off messaging, calendar, and i accidentally turned off "phone" service because I confused it with dialer.
I use games, and browser and calculator.

Any recommendations to boost gaming performance or other tips?

Thank you

PS: i do not have a custom recovery installed because i fear i will brick my device, just granted root rights.

If you want to boost your device for gaming, you need to change your native kernel by a another which one will allow you to be able to change the governor for a better fluidity => Android Development and Hacking > Miscellaneous Android Development > [KERNEL-3.4.67] MT6589 / MT6589M / MT6589T

But you will need to flash a custom recovery. For this you can go here => Android Development and Hacking > Miscellaneous Android Development > [RECOVERY][CWM][MT6589][ENGLISH] - CWM for practically any MT6589 phone

If it's your intent to make more Ram available and cpu cycles, then point them to V6 Supercharger Mod by zeppelinrox
If you want more help about this solution, go here => Want to Overclock/Undervolt? by @Perseus71

Or as one of my colleague suggest me, you can use Titanium Backup for freeze all apps you don't need, but don't uninstall, you could have issues (FC) and be in trouble. Then you can unfreeze if needed. (thanks @KJ )
