[Kernel-TW-ND3][6/1/14] BeastMode 1.0 Enhanced Stock/SpeedBurst (OC/UV/GPU OC)
Hi guys, here is my first kernel for the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 WiFi edition.
I'll update this post to look prettier and with more information regarding the kernel but for now--here it is. This kernel is based solely on stock with tweaks. I do this to keep it as stable as the stock kernel as possible. There will be no features added that may impact stability because I am also keeping it as close to Samsung source as possible. But it does include a few things: Overclocking up to 2.72GHz, GPU overclocking support, voltage table support, removed debugging, and random tweaks here and there.
Please remember that all phones are not equal and choosing a frequency over stock (2.26GHz) can introduce instabilities, but it is not due to a crappy kernel or crappy coding. I've tried my best to calculate my overclocking voltages based on the stock voltage table.
Also, please leave feedback on your experience, requests, dislikes, pretty much anything you can so I can know what I need to do with this kernel to improve it.
For those who want to see what CPU BIN you have (the higher the better) run this command, from adb or terminal: cat /sys/devices/system/soc/soc0/soc_pvs
Post your results and I will try my best to reply to them with information on your particular CPU. The results will be a single number ranging 0-6.
Huge thanks to imoseyon and morfic for all of their help, support, and general awesomeness.

SpeedBurst? Yup! You may notice that your CPU spikes up to 2.3GHz (Roar) or 2.41GHz (Rage) occasionally. This is "SpeedBurst," and is meant to give you that extra burst of speed when you need it most lol. These two frequencies are given the most performance increases because it is assumed that most, if not all Tab Pro 8.4s can handle it since it is such a small step up from the stock 2.26GHz frequency.
Overclocking support. (up to 2.72GHz)
Voltage table support.
GPU overclocking up to 600MHz.
Interactive and OnDemand governor tweaks with cpufreq_screen_off support.
BeastMode is now being released with 3 versions:
: This is essentially CatMode but with all other non OC/UV related tweaks done as well. This means no L2 or bus changes, but all other changes are included.
: This is a step up and includes a slight bump for L2 with a slightly higher L2 in frequencies 2.3-2.41 GHz. (Most tablets should handle this fine.)
: This is BeastMode in its current form with a heavy bump for L2 as well as bus with the highest bump in frequencies 2.3-2.41 GHz.
Keep in mind that voltages, L2, and bus speeds are and will always remain stock for all frequencies up to 2.26 GHz for all versions of BeastMode.

Rage and Calm coming soon.
I've started to post beta versions of the kernel before stable release. These may introduce issues, but more than likely the issues will be small.
