Trinity kernel brings overclocking and better battery to Galaxy Nexus
No matter how good your device's battery life may be, it can always be better, and allow you to play more games or watch more video, or even some of those less battery intensive things like checking e-mail or using your phone to make actual phone calls. Now, if you're a Galaxy Nexus user with root access, you could get a boost in battery life.

The boost comes from the custom Trinity kernel by Morfic. Trinity kernels are known for boosting performance, but this one will also help battery life. The trick is that this custom kernel overclocks the CPU while also undervolting, as well as underclocking the CPU when the phone is in sleep mode in order to both kick up performance and add battery life.

The Trinity kernel is available for both CDMA and GSM variants of the Galaxy Nexus, and you just need to have your device rooted and unlocked.

Are there any sources that compare how custom ROMs and kernels fare to each other? I know each phone is slightly different, but a single review comparison on the same model would go a long way to help prospective users in adopting new ROMs and kernels.

Also testing Codename, have you tried Lean Kernel? I haven't had time to try the other kernels.

I have tried all sorts of rom kernel combos and the best for me so far is AOKP with Franco's. Yesterday I got 16 hours with 2 hours screen on with the standard battery. If you haven't tried AOKP by roman I highly recommend it. I was all about CNA until I gave this a whirl and I haven't looked back since.

Dude it's so worth it. I have my processor slightly undervolted and underclocked and I still get the same performance as before but I'm averaging 14-18 hours of battery life... it's amazing.

Search Wugfresh's one click unlock/unroot tool. Easy as pie.

I may have to try this one too.. right now I'm rocking the Gummy ROM with Franco's kernel. The great thing about Franco is that the app you can get from the Market allows you to VERY easily OC or undervolt. How is undervolting accomplished with Trinity?
