    OC kernel for the NST and NSTG available

    roustabout

      Super cool, someone's put together a kernel that supports clocking the NST and NSTG at 1 ghz. 

       

      The kernel is compiled with what's reportedly a very good set of tools, almost certainly better-performing tools than those available for the stock BN kernel, and bundled with a very simple CPU control utility which lets you dial the kernel back to 800 mhz if you want only the Linaro optimization but not the OC.  You can also use a more-responsive frequency governor if you choose to.

       

      Installing the kernel is not for the faint of heart or inexperienced, but I suspect that once the testing is done the dev will give permission for it to be included in the various nooter packages.

          I wasn't overly interested when the thread 1st started out, as performance hasn't been a problem for my NST, given what I use it for. I am, however, impressed with the video mode enhancements and multitouch that are being included along with the faster speeds.

           

          This is yet another example of why companies should embrace the developer community rather than try (futilely) to lock them out. I wonder how many of the long-standing B&N bugs would be fixed in short order if they'd release the source code to this crowd.
