Burning Fingers – Kernel For EVO Enables 2 GHz Overclock
We have seen a lot of EVO 3D development over the last couple of days, all thanks to the wonders of S-OFF, courtesy of Revolutionary. Some of the fun that awaits you after performing the unlocking procedure includes flashing anything you can think of on your device. This includes (but is not limited to): roms, patches, radios, and kernels, as well as a few other things. The kernels will ensure that your devices run as smoothly as possible, giving you many options, one of which is the ability to overclock your device. XDA member klquicksall has prepared a kernel for the EVO 3D that among various things, it enables the device to be overeclocked to 2 GHz. If you wanted to see what a dual core processor was capable of, by all means try this out. Just watch out as your device may end up anticipating your actions at such speeds. There are other tweaks on this kernel as well such as the ability to connect to a wifi network that has a poor signal and CIFS.
Please try it out and see if you can find any bugs with it. If you do, please leave your feedback and reports for the dev to improve the kernel.
- V(R) I/O
- WIFI FIX
- WIMAX SUPPORT
- Wifi Tweak to connect a weaker signal -108db over stock -88db
You can find more information in the kernel thread.

This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups. But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
