Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 190

post #1891 of 2113
Does anyone have a good guide for overclocking? I've done a good amount of searching, and I've found a lot of guides, but they were either incomplete and not from a trusted source, or provided the files for the international version. I have the SGH-I747 US version, and haven't been able to find a good guide for my mine. I could probably get by on rooting from what I've already read, just need a good guide and kernal/programs for the US version. I probably should've just asked here to begin with redface.gif

Your mileage may very as far as kernels go, you've gotta test that on your phone. Every phone is different.

After that, download SetCPU or a similar overclocking app and go to town.

You will have to root first though.

xda-developers forum for your device will give you the needed info.

This guide covers most stuff about overclocking:

Thanks. Finding a lot of good stuff there. This thread looks like it's going to be my new best friend- http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1725839

So there's no particular kernel that's better for overclocking? Just grab one and root, then get SetCPU?

Thanks. But at the top of that thread it says it's for the international version. I have the AT&T US version. No quad-core for me frown.gif. I'll still look through it though and take what I can from it. Looking for something just like that thread you posted, but for the US version. I think I found it though (link I posted above). Just found that thread, so I haven't read through it yet. But it looks like it's got everything I'd ever need to know.

+rep, thanks to both of you smile.gif

They're all the same for overclocking really. It's up to your device how well it'll respond. Most kernels let you pump it up to 1.9 GHz IIRC.

Nice, thanks again. I'd be happy with 1.8Ghz, but we'll see. Been looking through the couple xda threads. I think I'll be ready to go soon. Just going to have to pick out a kernel and rom. Am I really missing out on anything by going with a Samsung-based one instead of open-source? I don't want to get one that won't allow the camera and stuff to work.

You don't have to install a custom ROM to switch kernels. You can run stock with a different kernel just fine.


As for touchwiz vs AOSP, that's your call. Right now 4.2 AOSP ROMs are pretty buggy, and 4.2 touchwiz roms don't exist.

If you want stability, your best bet is 4.1. It's personal preference though. I love the reliability and bug-free nature of touchwiz, but I love the styling and simplicity of AOSP.

Right now I'm on touchwiz but i'll probably jump ship again soon.

So I can just root and flash a new kernel and stay with the stock rom, and run SetCPU? Nice.

And, I don't mind the stock layout/theme that much. I'd like all the bloat gone though, I don't even use half of it. So, it sounds like 4.1 touchwiz would be good for me.

You are correct.  If you'd like the bloat gone, there should be an AT&T touchwiz based ROM out there with your name on it.  I'm on a different carrier, and keep it pretty stock with 'CleanROM' no bloat, stable, and great performance with the kernel I'm using (not that the stock kernel was terrible).

Awesome. Yeah I don't use most of the extra stuff. And all of the games I got hit 100% load on the CPU, so I'm assuming a 20% overclock (1.8Ghz) or so would help a bit. What about the GPU though? I've seen the guide about overclocking/overvolting it in the international S3 section of xda, but not for the US version. I've been wondering if it's worth looking into further or not. I Google'd for any apps that show GPU load and nothing seems to be popping up, so, any info about if doing it would be of any benefit would be appreciated redface.gif

Sorry for all of the questions. Was literally never into phones before a few days ago. Had a much simpler Windows phone for years because I only had interest in computers. Well, now that changed tongue.gif So, thanks to those that've already helped, and for any future help as well.
