CleanKERNEL is for one purpose, kick the clock speed up a hair.

This is for Verizon JellyBean ROMS ONLY. Not for the new KitKat ROM's.

  • Max clock is 1.89GHZ. <- This is the only difference over the stock kernel. Just two lines of code inserted at a specific point. No fancy features, no swipe to wake, etc.. just two frequencies added to the CPU frequency tables.
  • Not every phone will react the same way to this kernel. Some phones will love it, some phones will over heat and melt. Its highly unlikely your phone will melt but just in case... you have been warned!
  • Make a Nandroid back up of your entire system before flashing. There is no "undo" button.

  • I made this for me but figured I would share with everyone. Dont ask for any features. I'm not a kernel programmer (However I did sleep at a Holiday Inn last night!).
  • This is only for Verizon. It may work on every variant, it may only work on Verizon. I dont know. Flash at your own risk.

Benchmarks... Because someone is bound to ask...

Compared against a stock One and a Stock S4

I have a Sprint One Max sim unlocked to T-Mobile and I'll test the Kernel to see if it works.

Flashed the Kernel to my Sprint HTC One max and seems to work nicely. Great battery life also. Has been on 80% for almost 2 Hours in Standby mode.

Fyi 'flashable' Verizin stock insecure kernel in OP here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=257081

Always good to have files to return to stock before trying new ones.

Edit: *flashable* as in a .img you can flash with flashify or fastboot.

To be honest if all he did was edit 2 lines of code to enable a slight OC step that's probably placebo

I would also agree, it should not affect battery life positively or negatively.

The voltages that I used on the the top two frequencies are the same voltages it hits per PVS BIN for the top stock frequency.

So at a minimum you should similar results. Better may be pushing but then you have to look at other factors.

In theory if CPU is maintaining same power draw and is runing faster... The screen may not be on as much as save time by having a faster phone...

So in theory it could be better battery but hard to say. I never even ran the stock kernel for more than 10 hours.

Also another factor to take into consideration is the ROM you are on. If you are CleanROM and CleanlKERNEL, you over all battery will be better than stock.
