Installed Android 4.0.3 on my Cortex A9 (First impression)

On January 3th this year I wrote that I had installed ICS 4.0.1 on my Zenithink Cortex A9 C91. After that I tested the 4.0.2 and now the 4.0.3 release of the official Zenithink Beta builds of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Must say that ICS on this tablet works smooth and using it is even more fun than before with the Gingerbread release.

Today I did go a step further, I changed the kernel to a custom kernel inside the official release of ICS 4.0.3.

The problem is that the 1Ghz CPU never got it’s full power with the official firmware Zenithink released it usually never got over the 800Mhz barrier.

As you can see it is still a fast tablet but it could do much better.

As you can see now with the custom kernel it is a 100Mhz faster and the total rating is 280 BogoMIPS higher than with the standard kernel.

For now it also seems a bit smoother than before..
