So, I have time, phone, ubuntu 12.04, and a head, but no skills in android rom development. Some years ago I builded some roms for LG GM750 (Windows Mobile), so that's only I can for now

Firstly, i'd like overclock my SGA2. I know that I need to do something with a kernel? But what? Who can explane & give links? I know, antsm already tryed to overclock this phone, but no success. SetCpu is shownig right freq, but no any result in antutu and other benchmarks, so it isn't working. Any help is much appriciated

Hey friends did anybody get to overclock now?

I'm honestly not fond of overclock, but if I can Undervolt and improve the already great battery life, that's fantastic
