Overclocked kernels will increase the clockspeed on the tablet above what it is set to by default. For the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 that is two cores at 1 GHz each. The overclocked kernel can boost them up to over 1.3 GHz. This is still in development and might cause crashes, so make sure do…
Samsung released the kernel source code for the newly released Galaxy Tab 10.1 a few weeks ago and everybody wondered where the love was for the Galaxy Tab 10.1v. Well Samsung did not want to play favorites and released the kernel source code for the 10.1v.
So what is the good of a source code? Two words – overclocked kernels. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 already has a 1.4 GHz overclocked kernel and now we can expect the same from its slightly older brother.
Are you an excited Galaxy Tab 10.1v owner? Let us know in the comments or forums.
The kernel source was just recently released and the developers at XDA immediately went to work on an overclocked kernel. They managed to get it up to 1.4 GHz, but it is not quite ready for general consumption. It is still in a preview stage which basically means it is in alpha testing. You should expect many force closes and crashes. Initial testers claim to have boosted their Quadrant score by around 400 points.
I can not recommend that you flash this kernel at this point, but if you must, then follow the source link for instructions.
It looks like Samsung Mobile has released the source code for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Now this is not the Honeycomb operating source code that many have been waiting for Google to release to the public, but it is the source code to the kernel. A lot of manufacturers have been releasing source codes of their products to make developing for them easier. It begs the question as to why Samsung locked the bootloader on the Galaxy Tab 10.1?
Was the 1.2 GHz overclock not extreme enough for you? Hopefully this will get your adrenaline pumping. Bauxite over at XDA recently released version 2.0 of his overclock kernel. Even though the kernel is on version 2.0, the developer still considers it extremely alpha code.
Find out how to install after the break.
Let me start out by saying that this is potentially dangerous and you can brick your device very easily. Always make backups before you flash. If you don’t know what flashing is, then you should probably stay away.
