Do NOT flash a kernel that isn't for your device

Also, Samsung is great at releasing source, so over clocking should be pretty easy


Finally, why overclock? If the phone isn't laggy, all you're doing is increasing the heat, decreasing battery life, and possibly causing damage

I just like to see how far the device can be pushed. Im mostly interested in using STweaks than just having a solid overclock runing.

Either way i need a custom kernel.

I'm pretty sure stweaks won't work unless gokhanmoral decides to change his mind and actually purchase an s4, otherwise we need to hope someone else with his great ability helps us out.

lol I think you're being a little impatient. How long has the phone been available?

Anyway, gokhanmoral's siyah isn't the only kernel that can be used with stweaks (on the S3). Perseus kernel also allows the same tweaks (overclocking, audio, etc). So all is not lost. There are bound to be custom kernels developed for the S4.

You won't see a custom kernel until Samsung releases source code for the S4 kernel. The best you can hope for until then is a modified stock kernel a la Chainfire or PhilZ, which obviously wont allow voltage/frequency table modifications.

You're lucky Perseus only had a few problems. The kernel is for the i9500 so isn't compatable with your i9505. What issues are you still having?

Yeah i worked that out eventually lol, perseus caused a boot hang and then i tried another custom, cant recall which one but i then got a joot, yet was left with problems of no wifi, no sd card read/write, apps attempting unpermitted actions warnings and lost loads of sd mounted apps. I then tried adams kernel, which solved a couple of the issues (wifi/sd card) but i still recieved regular error warnings for unpermitted actions.

I bit the bullet and reflashed the stock os, which as it happened, installed as an update, this solved all the issues and once that was done i decided to flash with the latest MGA 4.2.2 update.

Im considering moving over the the google edition 4.3 rom but im not sure i can be bithered to reinstall all my apps and settings.
