CPU Overclock = Crash?
« on: May 12, 2011, 09:24:27 PM »
Hm... I was just bored so I figured I'd research more of the "Overclocking" crap. LOL Yeah yeah I know its probably never going to happen. But something happened. I used the "fstab" method to change the CPU minimum frequency, etc. The firs time I did it id did nothing. Then I changed the numbers and it took like 5 mins to boot only to crash right before lock screen appeared. SO I have to restore... >.< LOL



Does anyone know what files they CHANGED between iOS 1.0 and the next release where they changed the CPU clock from 400Mhz (or whatever it was) to 412Mhz?

Maximum = 570

Current = 550

Minimum = 412


Lol. Never did a crash before on me. It always just never worked... I wonder if that means it actually DID something???

Well it did something, I just think the max Mhz you set was to high. I think it did something to your iPhone before, overclocking just doesn't affect the boot time.
It's all about speed opening apps etc.
And I don't know the files added since IOS1, sorry

you CANNOT overlock iPhones; its hardcoded into the OS, no matter what you read it can't be done, or be proven to work.. Even if it did it would kill battery extremely fast.
