Hi everyone, I have been using a pretty old Samsung Tab 2 as a secondary improvised screen (kind of like streamers have a secondary display for chat and other tasks). Thing is, it is really slow and I was wondering if I could OC it and if it was worth it. I heard about using special kernels for stuff like this and having the device rooted but I haven't done any of these things myself, though I want to try . I was thinking of also changing the android version if everything will be succesful. Should I take the risk or is my piece of hardware just too damn old?

Have not really head of someone overclocking a tablet, it may be possible to run it at a faster speed with a custom ROM. If you don't care if the thing ends up broken at the end, you won't really lose anything by trying if it's not usable for you as it is. Overclocking = more heat = higher risk of component damage.

It's possible because I have my s3 mini and it runs android 7.1.2 and overclocked from 800mhz to 1200mhz. Worth a try on your tablet if you know what to do
