    no real need for overclock really, will just cause more battery drain. ;)

    *unless you actually properly overclock :p

    my s4 has lower voltages on 2.1ghz than it does on stock 1.9ghz thus draining less battery overall.

    the cpu table has the voltages, stock uses x amount but you can use less
    unfortunately you cant, the kernel is what ties the hardware to the rom, and 97% of devices used teh very different hardware, even teh sgs3 from one carrier to another cant use most kernels

    How long would it take to make? And can it be done via phone? Like text editor?

    nha you need to download the kernel source and edit all the .c files add to the freq table the freq's and voltages that will work and then compile the zImage, pack into a boot.img and then loki it up :)

    Sounds like you're looking for one of these... :rolleyes: :D

    Spirit Maximus kernel

    Huge thanks to djrbliss. Without his root and loki patch I wouldn't have gotten to build this kernel.

    Maybe later on when I get some time I'll grab firmware f boot.img and lg kernel source for motion and build an OC kernel for it. Unless someone is already building one. If I don't get to it, when my source goes up any of the devs here can look up my cpu_freq_table. Same cpu for both devices, so it's prolly copy/paste. lol

    Soon as you get your source up, I think I'll try a crack at it, but no promises to anyone :smokingsomb:
    My hardest struggle is repacking a boot.img :vroam:

    No problem. Once you have your zImage I'll repack it for you. ;)

    I'm gonna fine tune the overclock a little more today and test it, It'll prolly be a couple days before I have my source code up.

    Don't worry about all that now. We'll get it done when the time comes.

    I repack all my zimages in kitchen through option 12 menu since it's quick and easy. I'll do it for you, I don't mind.

    Some sort of bad news. The motion and spirit clock table is a little different, so can't copy paste as I originally thought. No biggie, I'll make one for motion.

    Can you link me a firmware f boot.img?
    @sammyz would you be willing to test?


    Just did the final tweaks to my spirit kernel and got nearly 7,000 bench @1.836ghz running smooth as a baby's a$$. lol :D

    Yes, I'd love to test! Only one problem though, still don't have my replacement :eek::p Gonna try to get it replaced fast tomorrow if they have any in stock.
