Did you know you could overclock your Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0’s processor and GPU? To do that you will need to flash a custom kernel that lets you do that. An xda contributor, civato has released CivZ-StormBorn_Rev1.7 kernel that does exactly what the doctor ordered. You will need to have custom CWM onboard before you flash it though. Here are the features of this kernel.
Change nothing and it is 99% running at stock kernel functions.
OC up to 1920MHz Inspired by Xcstacy N-8000 kernel.
UC , new lower frequencies 100MHz.
Start up boot speed is 100MHz – 1600MHz (default speeds), you need to change that to your likings.
CPU savings power limit by Samsung still works , activating will drop max CPU to 1100MHz like the default.
UV/OV (Min UV 600mV , Max 1500mV) support on most cpu control apps (setcpu , trickster (included)) Thanks to Ezekeel , Netarchy & Andreilux
GPU voltage control and 533MHz step unlocked and selectable (with “TricksterMod”), Min uv is 600mV
ARM optimized algorithm
ARCH power enabled
Boeffla Sound 1.6.0 engine
Init.d support with I/O tweaks
Triangle Away app support
Extra modules= Cifs, dns_resolver, ntfs , ufs, scsi_wait_scan (loadable with terminal command)
Build in support= ISO9660_FS, UDF_FS (cd_rom/dvd filesystem) , HF & HF_Plus .
DynamicFSYNC = Use Terminal command or Trickster Mod app. = enabled by default.
Striped of debugging
Governors: Adaptive, Pegasusq(default), Interactive, Powersave, Performance, Ondemand, Userspace, LulzActivQ.
Schedulers: cfq (default), Noop, Deadline, Row, Sio, VR
Cpu frequencies according to load
Adaptive Body Bias control @ AndreiLux
MMC cap brick bugg disabled as a precaution.
GPS automated update of the lto2 file for faster gps lock-on.
Keep in mind that the above hack works only on the Galaxy Note 8.0 N5110, which is the Wi-Fi only version. Find more here.
