    I added your changes and the bench in antutu jumped from the 12588 that I achieved with the CPU over clock to 13913. Amazing but still shy of the 15k I'm trying to get out of this thing. I'm not sure what's up with quadrant but the benches haven't moved.

    i havent been able to get over 15k on any 8960 device yet and trust me I've been around lol. i think if the row gov is added it may boost to ~14200? but i think with improvements we will get there

    I'm thinking of bumping the CPU clock up. Might take it to the full 1.8 you proposed. Ive made a zip for stock and DSF. Once I'm 100% that its safe as a daily driver I'll post it. I'm also going to start testing with cm10. Id really like to build ICS from aosp, but am lacking the hardware to do so

    wait you got almost 14k on less than 1.8? o_O
    wow thats awesome
    the only thing stopping me from pushing out a source based rom for every phone imaginable is hardware limitations lmao
    us folks on the galaxy victory side have wifi working but it reboots our phones for some reason (mem leak error or bad addr?) on cm10

    Im comfortable with 1.7 as this chip is designed for that speed, but there may be other ways to pick up a few points

    After installing it, what would be the procedure to remove it? Restore a previous nand?

    Fiops has not been added yet, and restoring your boot partition will remove it.

    im trying to add fiops but it doesnt wanna play nice with our kernel version (3.0.8) and the way elevator.c is setup. Im trying to hack it in without removing too much or adding too much. Every other sched goes in just fine (vr, row, sio) but this one wants to be a douchebag.
