[Guide] Know your Device: Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562 | Root, Odin, CWM, ROM List & More...

Samsung Galaxy S Duos (GT-S7562) is a dual SIM smartphone, designed and marketed by Samsung Electronics. In contrast with other dual sim Samsung models, this phone is a part of the high-end "S" series, this is why it's marketed as a part of the "Galaxy S" family.
The phone also comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, along with Samsung's proprietary Touchwiz interface.
Unlike entry-level dual SIM models from Samsung, the Galaxy S Duos is active on both SIMs all the time so it is ready to receive calls on either SIM when a call is not already in progress. Optionally it can receive two calls simultaneously but this requires divert-on-busy to be set up on each number and is subject to availability from the carrier and may incur additional charges. A limitation of the Galaxy S Duos is that only one SIM can be active on UMTS (and therefore data) at a time and so it may be unsuitable for certain combinations of networks.

works perfect, tested with heavy games and normal use.
there are already some s7562 users that use them (watch in the signature).
actually sadman's is the most recent, updated today with latest linux kernel 3.0.31, all three have many cpu clock to test with, choose the one stable for you (for me is 1150 mhz, doesn't go beyond).
actually I'm using the sadman's with gpu oc.

absolutely recommended a cwm backup.

note: ba2x 2.0 and sadman 3.0.31 updates the modules so if you want to flash previous kernel again you must backup the /system/lib/modules folder or simply make a cwm backup

I noticed increased responsivness and few lags in games and multitasking
