Galaxy Tab 10.1 has just received an OC kernel developed by XDA-Developers forum member pershoot, letting you overclock your Galaxy Tab up to 1.4Ghz. It is important to note that the kernel has not been widely tested as yet, but according to the little feedback from users who installed this kernel, the device was stable and things were seemingly fast on the Galaxy Tab.
Pershoot has released this kernel as a preview for people to test and gain some feedback on any glitches that may or may not exist for further improvement of the kernel. More work is to be done and certain areas have yet to be smoothened out. That said, the kernel will let you take your tablet’s frequency up to 1.4Ghz. Use Set CPU to adjust the frequencies and governors.
Below you can see a few features of the kernel:
- Used GT-P7510 source from opensource.samsung.com and supplied defconfig. as a base.
- Merged up to kernel.org’s, 188.8.131.52.
- OC upto 1.4Ghz @ 1.200mV
- Same optimizations as gtab-2632 (-O1, cortex/vfp/fp optimisations via CodeSourcery 2009-q1).
- Merged in various changes from gtab-2632, vision-2635, AOSP and kernel.org.
- Autogroup (session), various ERRATAS, BFQ I/O scheduler.
The governor may reset back to conservative (default), when using ondemand, after wakeup. This will be investigated.
The installation is quite a simple one. We’ll show you how.
