Project is simple in design and is a work in progress, overclock as far as we can go with ample supplied voltage for maximum stability. These are the screenshots taken last night from the last few builds of the evening, were up to something like 40 builds so far trying to get everything just the way we want it to run, look, and feel.

Currently we are overclocking both the GPU and CPU using both base frequency modifiers and multipliers. This is allowing us to directly push the GPU to its stable limit while adjusting out the CPU accordingly.

Project Developers
Morfic and Viralblack of Team Whiskey. This is and will continue to be Morfic's baby until the phone prints money and/or can transform into a jet.

The Short and Long term goals are the following:

-To optimize the kernel with the best toolchains available to us
-Inject vital code enhancements for stability and to extend the feature set of the SGS Vibrant line
-To determine Min/Max Voltage, Bus Clock, and Multiplier values for Maximum Overclock and Maximum Effecient Overclock
-Continue to push the GPU to its theoretical maximum independant of CPU clock values.

Target Numbers and Current Results.
CPU Target 2.0GHz, Current Maximum Overclock 1.6 Stable (Time limitation only, havent rebuilt to try more)
GPU Target 85 FPS Stable Bench, Current 78 FPS
At current this is a JFD Stable build thats more than fairly bulletproof on battery life. To use with JI6 builds just flash Eugene's JFD/JI6 support package.



This is NOT a hoax or scam, these are real DDMS screenshots from the build currently in progress, as it has not yet been released we do not have code or kernels available until we know its running smoothly. The following zImage is a prerelease alpha. Its strictly for proof of concept. This kernel is mildly optimized and includes the CPU and GPU overclocks. In three of three test phones the CPU was stable, in two of three phones the GPU was stable. One test phone was not able to complete neocore under this coding.

Battery life has proven about the same as traditional OC/UV kernels. This is NOT our finished product, this is an Alpha for proof of concept for other developers. Run at your own risk. There is no failsafe, this does not require SetCPU to engage. It comes out of the box at 1.6GHz with steppings of 1,2,4,8,16

Currently, tested incorporations with the zMod have shown that overclocking renders the zMod unstable and bricks the device. I personally preferred to use RyanZAs OCLF v2.2 APK.

I had one out of 20 quadrant runs fail because I switched scheduler away from deadline. CFQ proved to be less stable for one reason or another when running quadrant.

This thread will be updated as work progresses, Do not flash this if you do not know what youre doing. Suggestions are welcome for integrated features you would like to see in this kernel, we will not however be fielding bug reports as this right now is staged as a Prerelease Alpha or RC0.

If when this is flashed your phone crashes and is unable to work, my suggestion is odin the stock kernel back in place and wait for a lighter overclock version to be released.

Removed while core is being rewritten


EDIT 10/28:

To update the project and to iterate why the download link was removed, the kernel seems to be misbehaving and we havent yet nailed down the correction as of yet.

As many people pointed out once it was released, the kernel seems to slow down 3D graphics. With this information and taking a day to go through all the options and data available to me, we discovered this issue isnt limited to just 3D graphics.

Imagine if you were running at 10MPH, and while you were running time slowed down but the slowdown didnt effect you. So youre still running at 10MPH but to the rest of the slowed down world, now youre running at 15MPH, even though your speed and direction havent changed.

The changes in the code for one reason or another arent playing nice with the Android system. Instead of pushing the clock up, in most cases, what its doing is simply slowing the internal clock down to the tune of about 30%. This is what is actually providing the benchmark gains that were being recorded, not an actual gain. This doesnt mean that the project is dead, we are recompiling to get a stable overclock with the new configurations. This doesnt mean the project was a failure, it just means we need to rewrite the alpha.

Edit 10/30 -
So, we are having distinct issues removing the timing error from the kernel while maintaining the integrity of the time system. So, being that the timing is much more important, we began rewriting it all from scratch. This is currently marked as Project Core in the same forums. Core is taking the best of the overclocking and fine tuning that this kernel has and combining it with energy effeciency and stability a daily driver phone needs.

So, we will be balencing the high end power thats desired and the low power use that is needed in this new project. With that being said, I dont believe that 1.6GHz (in my own humble opinion) is even remotely necessary for 99 percent of phone, let alone for daily use. This project is being succeeded by Core to make a power friendly daily driver kernel.

The kernel will still be available from the forums Alpha/Beta Download Section, but will not be supported as its being replaced by Core.

We found the redline Now we need to find the happy medium. If you enjoyed this release, youll love Core and Core with zMod.

Thread Locked until release, OP PM me when you want to release it

Good work TW

You guys should start working on a 2.2 version (Once you get this one smooth)

Thanks, but....

The processor already gets too hot at 1ghz.
I don't feel like cooking it just to say "hey wow, look how high I pushed it before it died".

Y'all really need to let people know that overclocking creates more heat and in the confined area of a tiny little cellphone there is next to zero cooling.
It's just asking for trouble.

Not that I don't appreciate the effort you guys are putting into the tweaks tho....

My phone never gets hot?
But they did put a warning, and you are the one modding your device.

Oh wow! This is great! I have an Epic 4g, will I be able to benefit from this awsome project?

Hopefully yes, the kernel will be ported to all SGS Variants if possible, Right now we have in our possession Vibrants and Captivates, were looking to expand and will probably be working with other developers to get this kernel ported across.

Yeah, mine will get warm, but I've never seen it get real hot.

Yes, its CWM flashable, but be careful with it. There is no failsafe, if your phone cant handle the overclock itll just crash as its set automatically to 1.6GHz topend
