Default [Q] porting 4.2 Samsung stock || S3 mini hw, overclock

Hi!

I just saw that the SM-G730W8 variant of the S3 mini is shipped with 4.2 Jelly. Is it possible to port 4.2 stock to i8190 variant? Does the two phones have the same hardware? I can't find it on Google.. It only says that it has a 1.2 GHz CPU, but nothing about the exact type.. Btw, what kind of processor works in the i8190? Coz one app says NovaThor U8420, but another says that U8500... If it's U8500, can we overclock it to 1.2GHz? As far as I know the U8500 works in 1.2 GHz, but our chip is underclocked... Thanks in advance for the answers!

The SM-730W8 has an ARMv7 processor so I don't think you could overclock your I8190 by porting the SM-730W8 kernel.

How did you root your SM-G730W8 S3 Mini? I have S3 Mini also with that model. I updated it to OFW 4.4.2 Kitkat but I'm not rooted. And did you install a custom ROM for your s3 mini?

Sorry for the late reply I haven't been on XDA in a while. I used Towelroot to root my SM-G730W8 on the NF2 firmware(4.4.2 kitkat)
