Rabid, Naked Bunnies Invade the Galaxy S3 i9300

XDA-Developers is developer-centered to its core. But if you browse the forums, you will often find it devoid of any humor from those same developers. Sure there are moments of genuine hilarity when a user avoids all semblance of cognitive thought and asks a question clearly answered in the first post. As expected, the user then is verbally given the boot from the thread. However, a little more humor in the form of rabid, naked bunnies never hurt anyone.

After a long hiatus from kernel development, the VillainROM kernel developer team of XDA Elite Recognized Developers netarchy and Hacre have returned to bring us yet another masterpiece. If you are not aware, Ninphetamine was one of the most viewed (just shy of 700,000) and most downloaded kernels for the Samsung Galaxy SII i9100. And if you want to see genuine laughs, read the first five posts in the thread. With the release of the Samsung Galaxy SIII i9300, the team have released what they are calling Ninphetamin3. It is already off to a rousing start, with “rabid naked bunnies” primed to take over the world. While still relatively new, the kernel provides marked battery and performance improvements over the stock kernel, and netarchy has this to say about the current feature set:

In the interests of improving battery life and performance on the sgs3, Ninpo and I have decided to pool our collective minds on a kernel, through which we aim to improve the sgs3 experience for everyone… and raise an army of rabid naked bunnies with which to take over the world.

Ninphetamin3 has arrived.

Current features/differences from stock

  • Overclocking up to 1800mhz
  • CPU Voltage Control Interface
  • GPU Voltage and Speed Control Interface
  • Tweaked Deadline Scheduler by default
  • Compiler optimizations aimed at improving performance/battery (OMG RICE!)
  • Removal of Debug overhead for performance/battery improvement
  • Triangle Away compatible
  • Various other tweaks and alterations too numerous to waste text posting, see the github commits if you really want the gritty details 

Hacre joins in with his own personal touch to the project:

In August 2011 a crack development unit left the SGS2 kernel scene, with patches they didn’t commit. This duo promptly escaped from the harrassment of noobs to the outside where the sun shines. Today, their work still wanted by XDA and users of Samsung phones they return to the SGS3’s good fortune.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
