    Default [Kernel]Zedomax Epic Touch Kernel [1.6Ghz OC][Quadrant 4000+][ACS


    So, I've compiled a new overclockable kernel off xda users's NeoPhyTe.x360 SG2 kernel, this should give you better battery life and also performance when you needed.

    Video Tour:


    Video Update on CWM:


    For those of you who weren't getting good battery life and also wasn't getting performance, this kernel should help.

    At stock 1.2Ghz (with no setCPU), you can get your performance back, getting like near 3400 on Quadrant without overclocking.

    *Note - As always, this is experimental kernel, flash it at your risk and don't take the battery out while you use ODIN!!!

    UPDATE: After using it for couple hours at 1.5Ghz, it works really well, everything works faster at 1.5Ghz!!! good battery life too.

    Features:
    Root+SU (yes, roots your phone too if coming from stock)
    ClockworkMod Recovery (USB Mount not working in recovery but will fix soon)
    To get into recovery, hold down Volume Up and Power button together until you see orange menus.
    Can be overclocked to 1.6Ghz usig setCPU.
    Long battery life with 500-1200 Mhz ondemand (the best to get low batt drain, should drain lower in sleep)
    Lowest maximum freq blocked to 400mhz (so if you put 200-200, it will run 200-400, locked due to better performance)
    Performance increases without overclocking.



    Overclocked users:


    Download kernel tar file here and flash with Odin:
    v2. Stock Recovery+Preroot+1.6OC + CWM Recovery:
    Download Epic4GTouch/kernel/ZedomaxEpicTouchKernel/SPH-D710_Zedomax_EpicTouchKernel-v2.tar at DownloadAndroidROM.com

    v1. Stock Recovery+Preroot+1.6OC:
    Download Epic4GTouch/kernel/ZedomaxEpicTouchKernel/SPH-D710_Zedomax_EpicTouchKernel-v1.tar at DownloadAndroidROM.com


    For those of you early adopters, please try and let me know of issues, thx!

    Having issues with voice and data?

    Most likely not from the kernel but you just need to do an MSL update,

    Hey Jay, I did the original root ZedoMax method. This was with Version one of the Kernal. I never did get clockwork. Is there something I need to do that I skipped? I can't seem to figure it out. I thought it would be included. If I boot to recovery I get "android system recovery" and instead of the orange menu I get a blue one with half the options. Obviously not clockwork... I've since flashed the v2 kernal.

    Suggestions or can you point me in the right direction?

    should've got CWM recovery when you flashed v2. v1 didn't have CWM in it, but v2 does.

    Hmmm... not sure what my next step would be. Like I'm familiar with cwm from the evo. This recovery is nothing like that. Just says Android recovery and tthe words are blue and not white. Ill post a pic here. I'd like to fix that issue.

    It took a second flashing of the V2 kernel for me to get CW but do it at your own risk....

    Thank you very much! I ended up flashing it again and everything is a-ok.

    wonder why.. Or if we are some of the only ones. I'm going to say I doubt it but I haven't seen any topics about at xda. Well off to play zombies..!

    Is it safe to use this if I have 2.3.6? Sorry, I'm completely new to rooting, don't want a $200 brick and two angry parents...

    No, I would use Sfhub's method here [ROOT][NCIQ][EG30/EG31/EK02] Auto root your existing stock ROM (w/o ODIN/ROM Flash) - xda-developers

    This really should get unstickied.

    Yes I totally agree. sfhub's root tool is really the best way to go now.

    Edit - I sent a PM to Paul627g to see if he can pull this sticky and move sfhub's root method thread up there.

    Okay, I used that and rooted my phone. I don't understand how to flash a ROM, however, I tried using ROM Manager to backup my stock ROM, but the little android guy with an exclamation mark in a triangle popped up so I had to pull the battery and go through the recovery screen to reboot. My phone is fine now, but I still want to flash a ROM so I can have some overclocking on my phone. Or do I not need a custom ROM to do that? Sorry, I'm new to all of this, I probably sound like an ***** right now... BTW, I can't download WiFi tethering app from the appstore; how am I supposed to utilize the unlocked tethering from rooting? Thanks for all the help.
