Pershoot overclocks Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to 1.4 ghz in his preview release.

One of our favorite Android kernel hackers, Pershoot, has been hard at work on a new project. This time around he is overclocking the newly released Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.  I’ve been talking to him a bit throughout this process and let me say one thing- he works hard for you Android fans out there.   This is definitely exciting news and only the beginning of the Android barriers.  Without further adieu, let’s hear from Pershoot regarding a taste of what he’s working on and what’s to come:

[Kernel] [Preview] – 2.6.36.4 – OC-VFP_FP 1.4GHZ – Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Update: 6/23/11)

This is a preview of what I have been working on. There is more to do, so I’m making this a preview until I have some other things smoothed out and other things honed down. I will post an extensive changelog and add to RM after the upload to github completes.  Here’s a quick rundown:

     

  • Use GT-P7510 source from opensource.samsung.com and supplied defconfig, as a base
  • Merged up to kernel.org’s, 2.6.36.4
  • OC to 1.4GHZ @ 1.200
  • Same optimizations as gtab-2632 (-O1, cortex/vfp 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

- Pershoot

This is a preview release (meaning it isn’t perfectly polished yet).  This isn’t for the squeamish or feint of heart.  Don’t try this at home if you aren’t comfortable with the entire process.  I know many of you out there are like Pershoot.  You see 1 GHZ and you envision 1.4 GHZ.  Then you download and flash his hard work and enjoy the benefits.  These are the best moments for many Android fans out there. So head over to his blog and take a look at his instructions and get to work.

Before you head over to the droid basement please take a moment and post some kudos and and gratitude here for him.  I’ ve asked him several times to put out a tip jar so he can be rewarded for his efforts but he won’t do it.   So make certain to send him some goodwill and encouragement for his efforts.

Pershoot, keep up the good work.  You inspire a lot of us here at New Tablet Reviews.
