Overclock Samsung Galaxy Y to 1.2Ghz

Here is something special for all of you!  Here is something which could overclock your galaxy y from 832 MHz to 1.2 GHz. This overclocking is made possible by one the xda-developer “Maroc-OS” which his Kernel Merruk 2.5.

Maroc-OS, had removed the original download links to this kernel because more than 80% users reported that the kernel didn’t work (never boots up!). But it’s really great that one other developer “BiswajitBarman” find a way to install it. So try it yourself!

Keep in mind, This is not an officially released version and has bugs in it. So be carefull. Check the comments for bugs reported by others. Also remember to have a backup with cmw.

Things to download

  • ClockWorkMode : Download this if its not pre-installed. : Download
  •  Merruk technology2.0.tar  : Download
  •  Elite : Download
  • : Download
  •  Kernel : Download

How to? 

  • Copy all files to Sd-Card [be sure it is not in any folders].
  • Extract the “boot.img” file from Merruk technology 2.0.tar into the sd-card.
  • If you have the app “Link2Sd” installed, do a clean up sd-card. If you haven’t installed it, continue to step 4.
  • Go to phone’s recovery mode by switching off phone, press “Vol up + Home + Power”.
  • Flash if you haven’t pre-installed it [vol up/down for choosing options & home button for selection].
  • Now you are in Clockworkmod, Now choose “Install .zip from Sd-card” and flash “kernel”.
  • Go to Backup & Restore and backup your rom.
  • Now Flash
  • Next, Go to Advanced and do a Error Report.
  • Flash
  • Go to Back and restore > Advanced, Restore “System, data & cache”. Keep in mind not to restore boot and sd-ext.
  • Done! Reboot and enjoy.

First boot make take sometime. If it is not booted even after 10min, do the steps again and in step 3 clean up sd-card with link2sd.

  1. wayne says :

    I have link2sd installed. How can i do the step3. Can u please teach me

  2. sachinvjn says :

    its optional. you can also do it with any other kernel.

  3. Mr.X says :

    please i need some help i did all the steps in the video but i got stuck where you i try to do the advanced restore with the backup but it says e: cache not readable or something like that so i try to restore with the backup i made before doing any thing and it also says the same thing so i rebooted an the Samsung logo appears but it stays stuck there so i took the battery out and put it back and then i reboot in recovery mode and i don’t get the normal recovery red letters instead i get the cwm yellow letters without having to go to the install update from SD card thing so i rebooted once again with the backup i did before doing anything and it did restore just that it keeps restarting itself every once in a while all by itself but i install the CPU master but it says on the big letters 1248 MHz but. what do i do should i restore with Odin or what? please help me.
    i deleted both backups.

    • sachinvjn says :

      now do one thing, flash a new firmware with odin. then flash a new kernel (one of merruk’s) and then try it again. Hope it will work.

      • Mr.X says :

        what do i do if in Odin the yellow box doesn’t appear. cant i just install the kernel again and see if this time it installs correctly. my current ROM is creeds 3.5. does that change anything? please reply.

  15. b00sa98 says :

    Hi! I have a question. If i am with stock ROM and overclock to 1.2 GHz and then i change on custom ROM is it stay overclocked to 1.2 GHz or i need to overclock it again. PLEASE REPLY ME! (sorry for my bad english its not my first language)

    • sachinvjn says :

      if the custom rom has a kernel inside it, you’ll lost it. check inside the zip file (of custom rom) and see if there is a boot.img file present. If yes, then that rom has a kernel inside.
