eXtreme Kernel: Turbo-charge Poco F1 Performance 1

Xiaomi Poco F1 is a beast. Unlock it and you can unleash the beast. Flash this custom Android Kernel to overclock its performance while maintaining stability and safety.

Enter eXtremeKernel! A custom kernel to turbo-charge default performance of an Android phone. Luckily, this kernel is fully compatible with Pocophone F1 device.

The Poco F1, codename Beryllium, is a lowered edition of a flagship phone. It sports the same powerful processors as Mi 8, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC.

This phone is the most affordable phone for gaming and on-device video editing.

However, some users may not get satisfied enough with its performance. Some still find it lagging during gameplays.

Know what? The phone can actually perform better and faster. The secret key is a balanced fine-tuning by overclocking its system.

There are some root-only apps to do the job but the actual end results may not as good as expected.

Overclocking, on the other hand, requires technical knowledge of programming and messing around with Android system source code.

Fortunately, there are some developers who are kind enough to build custom settings jump-packed in tweaks to alter the default kernel.

eXtreme Kernel by Alex Dev is one of the good ones. He stated that his fine-tuned kernel can fulfill your desire for performance and battery consumption.

It means you can boost its performance while keeping the system stable.
