Can u give me any feedback about the phone?

Every iPhone is actually underclocked. They do it for the battery life.

The cpu is really powerfull. The chipset is NovaThor U8500, with an ARM dual Cortex - A9 cpu at 1ghz (in sga2 it is underclocked to 800mhz), and the powerfull arm mali 400 gpu! More info here: http://www.stericsson.com/products/u8500-novathor.jsp

Hello antms,

at first thanks lot of for your work.

I did not try it, because I had concern to brick the phone...
Could the phone brick due this methode?
I mean, to loose the warranty is not the problem. I'm sure, one day is it solved to unroot, but to brick the phone would be not funny...

Generally, i don't belive with it, since kernel image doesn't affects on bootloader, which implements download mode.
But since i don't have SGA2 and can't test it personally, i can't take responsibility to say about 100% safety of this method.

Ok, maybe i'll test it. But! What will happen if something go wrong? I'll need to flash a new firmware? But how? If it may be flashed with odin, where can I get a rom?

Just flash stock kernel back (I8160XXLD3_original.tar.md5).
If you are looking for a firmware, you can get it at http://samfirmware.com (type i8160 in a search field).

Stock recovery usually performs signature verification for every zip-package. If the package is not signed by Samsung, then it will not be applied.
