Samsung Galaxy S II Hercules is one of the most popular Android device due to its beefed up specifications. The device is already having Dual Core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor making it one of the fastest device available in the market right now. XDA Recognized Developer Romanbb has taken it one step further and released a Kernel to over the device to an astounding 1.8 GHz.
The developers haven’t yet discovered any bug for this new Kernel but they have requested people testing the new kernel to report any random boots or boot loops.

What this is
- This is a way for me to play around with kernels and use you people as guinea pigs
- OC up to 1.836 ghz
- should boot into stock frequencies
- added BFQ I/O scheduler and made default
- patched drivers from newer Telus 989D source
- added zram
- working init.d support
The 1.8 GHz overclocked kernel also patches in the BFQ I/O scheduler and the ability to customize your voltages to suit your particular silicon. Overclocking device has always attracted inevitable bugs by pushing the clocks or voltages too high, so we suggest our readers to go for this only if they are very much sure about the entire Kernel process.
