So that it will be easy for me to control thread and add any new updates...


And on that note I am closing this thread... kindly refer to the above linked thread for further updates as Napstar will take over the kernel for this device...

---[ UPDATE ]---



[ info ]

hello guys this is a custom kernel for Huawei U9000 Ideos X6 which is also known as:
Cherry Mobile Magnum HD A400 (philippines)
Spice CSL Mi 410 - Slim (india)
WellcoM A99 (thailand)
CSL Blueberry Mi 410

Currently this kernel is built using ramdisk for this ROM: Andro-ID v3.3 RC2

we have tested this to be working on "Spice CSL Mi 410"... i cannot guarantee that this will work on other versions of same device... please test it out and let us know...


the kernel is based on merged sources of Mi410 v3.18D kernel source 2.6.32.9.7z, posted by [email protected] forums, into SEMC 4.0 FW kernel sources...


[ thanks to ]
  • ardX for posting those sources
  • tj_style for helping out with boot.img creation parameters
  • Napstar for testing on his device

[ credits for features ]


more features will be added in later versions


[ requirements ]

  • working Andro-ID v3.3 RC2 ROM


[ DISCLAIMER ]

I AM NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF U DAMAGE UR PHONE / SPILL UR COFFEE / MISS UR ALARMS / ANY OTHER CALAMITY/MISHAP


[ additional info ]

ok time for some gyan!
  • see each cpu/chip is different
  • each is unique and has different tolerances
  • slowly keep increasing the frequency
  • check its stability for 5-10 hrs
  • check for random reboots
  • check which one is best suitable for ur device
  • if u start getting reboots/freezes then throttle back and use lower frequencies
  • remember just because someone elses device was able to work at that frequency/voltage doesnt mean that ur phone can support/handle that frequency/voltage
  • i would recommend that u DO NOT use high frequencies for long time! this may damage ur device!
  • the high frequencies are just for temporary boost/benchmarks/showoff :P
  • you have been warned!


[ how to install ]
  1. please take full backup of system before testing/using this
  2. download the file posted above and flash using CWM

Anything above 1.5ghz is giving me restart, Quadrant as well as normal phone operation, maybe something wrong with my phone.
I'm on Andro-ID RC2 with Spice CSL MI-410 (Indian Version)

Just installed and tested a couple of games, Dungeon Defenders and H.A.W.X. Both game rock stable at 1.6GHz and game runs with smooth framerate, front and back of the phone exhibit unusual warmth though but it suffers no problems at all.

I just use for testing though, the vast frequency selection is just what I needed, now I set at 460MHz max for day-to-day usage like watching video and playing light games such as Angry Bird, not too slow that the GUI suffers and save battery at the same time.

EDIT: 1.9GHz stable in Dungeon Defender, but the touchscreen started to go haywire after prolong use because of the heat I suppose. Phone gets really REALLY warm now. So it is VERY dangerous to use it. Quadrant gives a score of 2602, not too shabby. Like DooMLorD said this high frequency is only usable for short benchmarking and not for long run, its pretty much the same story for overclocking in PC

Ok, so I think I need to clear dalvik and wipe user data and then try 1.9ghz for the benchmarking, will see later

I am not sure, but may be that will help. Because I had formatted my device for installing RC1 a day before testing this kernel.
Good luck!

Download the zip file and flash it through CWM, it is safe as long as you don't Overclock to extremes, 1.5ghz is ok.
