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.
