With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
HTC Jetstream Gets First Custom Kernel
basically this should encourage other devs to start working on the device now that they know its rooted, has recovery and can run custom kernels
The kernel itself seems pretty on par with DooMLoRD’s other kernel work, which is to say it’s loaded with features and is just all around awesome. Some of the features include:
CPU overclocked to 2.052 Ghz
CPU underclocked to 192 Mhz
GPU overclocked to 320 Mhz
for safe booting CPU is capped at bootup to 1.536GHz/384MHz (max/min)
slightly undervolted (atleast for stock frequencies)
uses LZMA compression
added lots of fixing/patches (including CPU HOTPLUG notifications/CPU unaligned access) thanks to faux132
VDD CPU voltage control (@ /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/vdd_table/vdd_levels)
compiled using Snapdragon optimizations
enabled few file systems support:
insecure kernel (ro.secure=0 & USB debugging enabled by default)
/system mounted as RW
Did anyone else notice the 2.052 GHz overclock capability on the CPU?
For those lucky enough to be carrying an HTC Jetstream who wants to check out this awesome kernel, you can find the full feature list, instructions, shout outs and download links in the original thread. The installation instructions aren’t hard to follow, but if you’re not familiar with the Fastboot on this device, you should probably should be before attempting to flash the kernel.
