This Kernel is only compatible with ROMS running on the VRALG1 Base!
Do not use this kernel on any base newer than that!
This Kernel is NOT compatible with the latest version of CleanROM!





Features
  • CPU Overclockable to 1.99 GHZ (vs 1.5GHZ stock).
  • CPU Underclockable to 192MHZ (vs 384MHZ stock).
  • The CPU comes clocked at normal Samsung specs of 384MHZ low and 1.5GHZ high. You will need an application like System Tuner or Set CPU to overlcock it. This can also be modified by advanced users in the init.rc but is not recommended or supported. See first two blocks of init.rc for details.
  • GPU Overclocked at 300/500 MHZ
  • Under-volted just a few milli-volts to help save battery.
  • There are no fancy governors or other such things. Its a modified stock kernel, plain and simple.
  • This kernel should be compatible with any VRAGL1 based ROM such as (of course) CleanROM and Nosympathy's stock rooted base. Good chance it will work well with Team Synergy's ROM too but I have not tested that ROM but its a VRALG1 Based ROM.
  • If your ROM has non Samsung Boot Animation you will more than likely loose it!
  • Its been said that flashing a kernel can cause IMIE loss. I have not seen it myself but I guess its possible.
  • This kernel will NOT work with any AOSP, AOKP, CM9, CM10, etc based ROMS! If the ROM is not a based on official Verizon VRAGL1 ROM then dont flash this kernel!



Instructions
  • Must have an UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER! No exceptions!
  • Should make a complete Nandroid back up before flashing!
  • Copy ROM to storage and flash
  • Use your favorite CPU controller app to set the speeds.


WARNING!
  • Overclocking can permanently ruin your device. I mean totally kill it! You accept this fact upon downloading the kernel and or source!
  • I cannot and will not take any responsibility for what this kernel does to your device!
  • Not all devices can maintain the same level of overclocking!
  • Just because the kernel can clock to 1.89 does not mean YOUR device can!
  • Be smart and start off low and bring upt the speed gradually just like O/C'ing a desktop CPU!
  • To return to what you had before this... Restore your Nandroid back up! You did make that back up, right?


Changes in this version
9/5/12 - Version 1.2
Added: O/C to 1.99
Possibly Fixed: O/C not OC'ing on some devices
Possibly Fixed: gsiff_daemon fix?
Added: Optimaztions to file system





THANKS!
Thanks to dsb9938 for helping me get my box set up and to sbryan12144 for schooling me on the edits to make. Without their help I would still be looking at an empty Ubuntu desktop wondering where to go!

Benchmarks dont matter! But your going to ask anyways so I already ran the three most popular benchmarks and the results are below. Your device and ROM set up may NOT acheive these benchmarks.

All testing was done on a fresh install of CleanROM 2.0 SP1 with no background sync 1.89GHZ and Ondemand governor.

These benchmarks are the best of 3 or 4 runs each. They didint vary too much from this except Linpack. That thing is all over the place.

Do not expect to get these scores!






Next your going to ask me how the battery life is. Being a new kernel it doesnt have as much metering under its belt so you I will need your input on what you see. Obvisouly if you clock it up high you will see a decrease in battery life. Let me know what you are seeing.

MD5's posted....

As stated in OP...

Quote:

This kernel is based of the Samsung stock kernel for the Verizon based SGS3. The kernel does not deviate from the stock kernel except as noted below...


In other words... No. Thats a Ramdisk edit anyways and not a kernel edit if I am not mistaken, no?

Its all good. I will post modified RAM disk that supports non Samsung boot animations later on... I just want to get a feel right now for the kernel and how it works out for people.

EDIT: But you do bring up a good point... I will post in the OP that you will loose custom boot ani's.
