Even though HTC hasn't released the kernel source there are still a few things we can do.

Attached are two modified kernels.

3.0.8-01136 is based on the current HTC European kernel
3.0.8-01053 is based on the current T-Mobile kernel

They will probably work better if you use are currently running a similar kernel.

All I did was add the following frequencies to the cpufreq table:

1.62GHz, 1.728GHz and 1.809GHz

It boots at 1.809GHz

Use setCPU to change the maximum frequency if you don't want it to run at up 1.809GHz.

I know there is a module to do more or less the same thing as this but having it built into the kernel is much easier and it allows the ondemand governor to use all the new frequencies.

I wrote some code to patch the kernel so it's easy to make this work with any other kernel version.

See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=24 for the source and instructions.

These are installable zips, flash the kernel using the latest CWM (at least version 5.8.3.1).
Copy the zip file to /sdcard, reboot into recovery and install just like a ROM.

If you want to test it first you can extract the boot.img from the zip and boot using:

fastboot boot boot.img

This will update you to the newest kernel if you are still running the older version. Worked flawlessly for me

I can easily make an installable zip if there is demand for it.


I think this should be a standard thing and not based upon request.
Just my thought.

Zip for CWM Please!
Yes a zip for CWM would be well appreciated. And also, would this work while using BinDroid XTC v1.0.2? Thanks

Oh well I thought I'd ask since dzo said if we would request it enough he might make one. Thanks anyways.
