    Hey, if you have been on the fence concerning overclocking you Pre to see how fast and good it can be, there is no need to wait any longer.

    Caj2008 has been working tirelessly to create the latest version of the Super Pre Kernel app. It is finally done and can be found HERE.

    Go install the app and installing or uninstalling a kernel is as easy as a single button tap.

    I have been running it and it runs faster than any kernel I have tried yet. It installs without a hitch. It doesn't have the hang/lag/luna restart issues that other kernels have had. It has a good battery useage rate and seems to keep the temperature in a good range as well.

    I run it at a fixed 800 and love it.

    So, go give it a try. If you like it, make sure and thank Caj2008 and donate to his work if you have a few extra bucks. He has made the Pre world so much more enjoyable.

    YES!!!!!! Sorry...just want to make sure you don't load SPK on top of an already altered kernel.

    As a former member of the 600 club I can say this new kernel is even better than the original.

    I've been leaning toward UberKernel instead. Jury is out. thorne

    UberKernel is a decent Kernel and I am sure when Rod gets finished with it, it will be a great kernel as well.

    I ran it for several days and found it to be more stable than previous kernels and loved the processor temp addittion. But I did have a couple of hang/luna restarts on wakeup while using it. It could have been due to leaving Govnah running in the background though. When I started closing Govnah I didn't have any more hangs. Also, Rod has intentionally made UberKernel settings to not remain persistent with a restart (for the time being). Uberkernel runs at the default 500MHz unless you use some form of governer/scaler to change the settings.

    All things being equal... the current SPK is faster than anything else I have ran to date and more stable as well. And, given the simplicity of install and removal of SPK and being able to change your settings all within the same app that you install or remove the kernel from (with a single tap for either). There isn't any reason to not try SPK. If you don't like it, uninstall the custom kernel, remove the SPK app and try something else.

    I'm not faulting Rod's work in any way. I like a lot of what they are doing but it is still being developed. So don't take this as a knock to anyone else's work. Caj, just has the best performing kernel out there right now based on my personal experience.

    EDIT- I have made decent donations to all of these guys work over the last several weeks as well as provided feedback on their various products. They can each vouch for that.

    pastorrich - I don't know about the easy install of SPK. You look at that 1st post and how verbose it is (and the PDF they insist you read first) and it scares me right off. And I've been a programmer for 30 years! =:-) thorne

    I have been in some form of tech work for 20+ years as well. I understand. But it's like opening up any manual... there are 40 pages dedicated to giving you three sentences of valuable information.

    Caj, is just being ultracautious based on the past experiences of people not reading the instructions and then attempting to do a fairly significant thing.

    In a nutshell...

    Make sure remove/uninstall any previous Kernel mods, shut down all scalers or governors, ensure you have a recent version of WOSQI installed and that you had the Package manager and Preware installed in that order.

    Download the two IPK's, drag the smaller file in to WOSQI first, then the larger one second. Click the big install button.

    Turn your Pre off, then back on. Tap the SPK icon and choose your speed.

    I have a question. Do you have to leave the Pre in developers mode even after you install the program and to run the program. Does it need to stay in that mode to change the clock speeds on your Pre?

    Unfortunately I don't know. I leave my Pre in Developer mode all the time since I mess around with the config so often.

    Perhaps one of the developers can answer that. You could post the question over in the SPK thread. Caj will get to it and give you an answer.

    If you only load 1 patch on your Pre, this HAS TO BE IT! This takes a good phone and just makes it great! Thank you guys for this!!! Love it!!

    I've been running the 800Mhz.sh since it became available and I'm happy with it. Since I'm waiting for the Verizon OTA 1.4.1.x update, I figured I'd wait until that's done before installing another overclock kernel. But I may get itchy to play so... =:-) thorne

    sounds awesome. can you scale with this? no need to keep it at 800 all the time.

    Govnah is still pretty alpha software; it doesn't page out any of the graph data, so if you leave the card open it will eventually fill system memory and force a Luna restart.

    The UberKernel is definitely the future though. The WOI team are amazing. Running "ondemand" mode on the UberKernel has dropped me down to about a percent of battery drain an hour on average with fairly regular use, and it still pumps back up to 800mhz when I'm doing anything processor intensive.

    Now all we need is an app that sleeps and wakes up the data connection and we'll be in iPhone battery consumption territory.

    Yes, you can scale this kernel with CPU Scaler Ultimate and I'm pretty sure Govnah, although the cpu temp won't work with Govnah or CPU Scaler at this time.

    AGREED! They do good work!

    I saw your post about the fast kernel and i want to try. i ahve installed some homebrew apps, so i'm not new to this. I just found out i need preware and package manager but when i go into web os quick install nothing happens when i click on the blue arrow button to download preware. I can't figure it out at all so now i'm down to asking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    By the way, the phone is in dev mode and shows up in webos quick intall.

    Working great for me!

    I do not see what makes this different from the other 800mhz.

    I use this app with dev mode off and it still changes kernel fine, to the earlier post.
    @Banger, it is different because it is an application you install on your phone, once installed you get to choose what kernel you want from the app without being hooked up to your computer. Also when it comes to a software update all you need to do is tap a button to remove the kernel and can leave the app on your phone without risking anything. (note: after software update it is likely that the app will have to be updated to be compatible).
