The Xoom get’s another awesome custom kernel yet again, named Launchpad thanks to RootzWiki forum member Steady Hawkin. This kernel brings in a maximum CPU frequency of 1.7Ghz with user adjustable voltages giving you control over overvolting or undervolting.

This kernel is meant for XOOM’s running Android 3.1 stock ROM or even the Tiamat 1.1 custom ROM. For a complete list of changleog and features, visit the forum thread at RootzWiki. As for voltage control, you will have to use an app such as Pimp my Cpu, but that would only give you options for undervolting, not overvolting. For that, you would have to execute a shell command. Details on how to do this can be found on the forum thread linked to above.
Here’s how you can install this kernel on your XOOM.
