What do you want to overclock? Memory or Processor?
Why do you want to overclock?
My xCover is stable now. Have you problem with stability, on your?

Hello! begal gerber

I'm sorry, I haven't got my hands on a custom kernel (custom room). But I'm searching for it every day.
Do you have problem with stability? I have myself downloaded an upgrade to the xCover through Kies.
And now I have no problem with instability. But I'm on the same page as you. The hardware have to be able to perform more than it does. I can't for example play flash based movies directly in the web browser (Opera), I have to get it to an internal movie player.

But I now a way for you to tweak the SD-card memory, and make the read/write time for the memory faster (The name of the program: SD Speed Increase). The program manages the size of the cache on the memory card [(SD-card) (The optimize cache is: 2048 kb)].

Would be great if you also post if you find a custom kernel/room to the Samsung Galaxy S5690 xCover. Let's help each other to find this. But I'm unsure that someone would/have develop this :(

Have a question for you; What do you think about the internal memory? It's only about: 160Mb, whats the deal with this?
(In a way you can move programs to the SD-cards memory but this isn't good enough according to me, it seams that all programs take space in the internal memory, even if you move it to SD)

I think it's very strange that Samsung did not put in more memory. Do you know something about the next version of xCover?

Think if Samsung would construct a phone with the same hardware/software as the S3 but with the robustness and stability on the chassi/frame as the Samsung xCover, this would be the dream phone :grin:
