How to overclock or underclock Galaxy Note Edge

XDA developer user upintheair has released a custom kernel for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which allows the users to overclock or under clock their devices. Here are the overclocking and underclocking speeds:

* CPU max frequency A15 cores = 2000 MHz (stock/default = 1900 MHz)
* CPU min frequency A15 cores = 500 MHz (stock/default = 700 MHz)
* CPU max frequency A7 cores = 1500 MHz (stock/default = 1300 MHz)
* CPU min frequency A7 cores = 200 MHz (stock/default = 400 MHz)

You need to be using N915S model (Exynos model) with CWM recovery installed. You should also be rooted.

This kernel supports overclocking and underclocking on only for Note Edge SM-N915S models

Here are features of this kernel

* ramdisk source:
* Built with Stock ARM Tool chain 4.7
* KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 1
* SELinux PERMISSIVE (for Titanium Backup and other apps to work correctly)
* TIMA disabled
* adb insecure
* init.d script support (drop in script & set permissions to 755 or 777 and reboot)
* busybox v1.22.0-Dream-IRC installed to /sbin
* Possible Screen Mirroring / AllShare Cast fix
* Secure storage = false (should prevent WIFI settings & passwords wiping on flash)
* Synapse app support for many kernel configurations + more
* lzo kernel compression
* Reduced logging
* F2FS support in source (not tested)
* exFAT FS support
* NTFS R/W support with app
* CIFS support (not tested)
* Frandom
* mount partitions NOATIME and NODIRATIME by default
* /proc/.config.gz support
* Much more – check source commits & change-log

Installation procedure

Watch >> THIS <<
Uninstall any CPU control apps, tweaks and scripts etc.
Ensure KNOX is disabled / removed (refer to “Requirements” section above for how-to)
Recommend: Install Wanam DVFS disabler, may help with better kernel control
Install Synapse app from Google Play and rate it ☆☆☆☆☆ !!
Flash with: CWM recovery
If flashing from previous SkyHigh kernel – Open Synapse app and RESET ALL SETTINGS GLOBALLY
