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.

Other thanks: Faux123.

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.

Features:
Overclocking support. (up to 2.72GHz)
Voltage table support.
GPU overclocking up to 600MHz.
NTFS Support.
Interactive and OnDemand governor tweaks with cpufreq_screen_off support.
FauxSound.
More.

BeastMode is now being released with 3 versions:
CALM: 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.
ROAR: 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.)
RAGE: 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.

KitKat 4.4.2:
Stable kernel ROAR version 1.0: Download here
Rage and Calm coming soon.

Beta kernels:
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.

KitKat 4.4.2:
None.

Stable changelog:

Thumbs up
The beast mode kernel is what this device needed, getting better overall performance, and noticeable performance improvement in Asphalt 8.

Pls continue this fantastic work!

Thanks for the kernels. Greate for us with a T320, Thanks again.

A question, how/where i can download the different Beastkernels versions downunder? I tried soures but just got this downloaded "BeastModeKernel-ROAR-1.0-T320"

CALM: 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.
ROAR: 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.)
RAGE: 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.

What program do you recommend for set up the kernel? At the moment I use Trickster

The links to Calm and rage appear forthcoming.

As to programs, I use SetCPU for one profile set at boot, utilizing charge state as the event trigger, and Trickster for overall CPU and GPU overclocking.

I am using Trickster Mod to set the max CPU freq to 2.419 GHZ, and GPU freq to 600 MHZ.
This gets an Antutu Score of ~ 37,000, higher than the new Galaxy S5.
The lags in the transition animations also disappears with the GPU overclock.

No GPU or CPU Overclock. I am using Android Tuner for more Option.
