Droid X, Captivate Overclocked

Okay, there are two separate items on similar topics here. First, Elkay, a user over at DroidForums, is claiming that he’s overclocked his Droid X. There’s no proof as of yet, so we encourage you to take this with a grain of salt until it’s confirmed.

Second, BriefMobile reports that developers have managed to overclock the AT&T Samsung Captivate. Apparently, their lag fix “creates a VIRTUAL EXT2 filesystem inside the RFS filesystem on the internal SD card.” This fix reportedly increases your performance by 15-20%. More info on it is available at xda-developers. In addition, another developer has released a 1.2 GHz overclocked kernel for the Captivate. Together, the two hacks yeild Quandrant scores above 2500, though neither is stable at this time.

Man, devs are all over it this week.

    it is true ive got my droid x overclocked to 1.2 Gh and stable there is a thread on how to at android fourums

  3. Yes, the method was considered as overclocking Droid X, but not the bootloader is not broken. Using same way as hackers Milestone kernel module was built to inject that will overclock the CPU Droid X to about 1.15 GHz. Yes, we realize that only a 0.15 GHz gain does not make that much difference – is not worried with the increase in speed as we are of the simple fact that no matter how manufacturers and carriers are trying to keep us, someone will find a way c. Rooting and change the CPU frequency one of the most locked phones Android date is proof.

    Pretty sweet. I wonder if the X can be clocked that high considering it has a TI OMAP3630.
