Custom kernels are Hi-fi stuff. They unlock awesome features on your phone. We previously showed you how to flash the CF-Root Custom Kernel on Ace with BLN & Swap support. Today its time for overclock.
For overclock/underclock capabilities, you need to have a custom kernel that supports it. Thanks to the efforts of ketut.kumajaya , this is now possible on Samsung Galaxy Ace.
For now this will only work on the cyanogenmod 7 builds only . Refer here.
- Install cyanogenmod7 build if not already on it.
- Download the overclock kernel “cm-7.1-oc-kernel-18.104.22.168-perf-CL562111.zip”
- Flash it using the CWM recovery.
- Reboot & goto CM7 settings. Or use the SetCPU app for overclocking.
People are reporting 864,883 & even 940 MHz options as stable. Phone instantly reboots above those. It is not recommended to use too high a value. You will need to experiment for a stable value. Start from 800 and and go 1 level above at a time. Test for about half an hour atleast.
An undervolt module is yet not made for Ace. Till then be happy with whatever extra Hz you are getting.
