If you think that running a pair of 1.4 GHz CPUs on the Galaxy Note is already at peak speed and blazing-fast for the average smartphone, think again. The guys at XDA-Developers have done it again, and this time around they cracked the kernel and have added a few tricks of their own for the Galaxy Note. Thanks to a custom kernel called AbyssNote, you can now underclock the Galaxy Note processor to as low as 50 Mhz or overclock to as high as 1.7 GHz. That’s a ton of battery juice you can save if you ask me–for underclocking, that is.
When it comes to installation of custom made Samsung kernels, many users tend to find it difficult to flash them via ODIN. However, a developer has found an easier method by packing the kernel into a recovery-flashable ZIP file. In other words, the method is the same procedure as installing custom ROMs using ClockworkMod recovery.
In this article, you will learn how to flash AbyssNote to your Galaxy Note.
You can check by installing SetCPU from the Android Market to set your Galaxy Note’s clock speed. Congratulations! You have successfully installed the AbyssNote kernel that will enable you to overclock or underclock your Galaxy Note’s processor.
