Don't even mention the charge rate when plugged into a usb port.
my biggest gripe so far with this otherwise excellent phone.
Jacking up the limit to around 3000ma on both ac and usb, and letting the phone draw the maximum current that the adapter can supply would really speed things up.
Do you have an idea on how to go about doing that? I'm actually a novice in this modding business, so I can't really do any original mods, but I can try to incorporate mods that others have done, providing that instructions are provided.
Having said that, I'm actually reluctant to attempt mods that tamper with voltage or current settings like what you're proposing. Maybe there's a good reason Samsung has limited the charging current. I don't want to fry my phone.
For now, I'm looking at mods that improve functionality, like BLN or CIFS. Maybe some overclocking of the CPU/GPU at later stage once I have more understanding of the platform.
