OverClock Droid CPU

Motorola Droid users are jealous of Nexus One coz of the higher hardware config, especially CPU. Droid is powered by 600Mhz ARM which is now Overclock to outperform Nexus One 1Ghz SnapDragon.

The overclocker ran various tests to check the system stability at various clock speeds: 800Mhz, 900Mhz, 1Ghz, 1.1Ghz.  800Mhz proved to be most stable and safe for ideal usage.

Warning: Overclocking can damage your hardware. Overclocking increases the CPU clock, and hence heat dissipation an can even cause irreversible changes

Alright, now you can go ahead:

Step 1: Root your Motorola Droid [Instant Root] or Root Motorola Droid [Traditional way]

Step 2: Make sure that you have flash_image on your system, in /system/xbin/ or /system/bin.

Step 3: Switch on USB debugging on the phone.

Step 4: Download evilboot8.img for 800Mhz, evilboot9.img for 900Mhz and evilboot1g.img for 1Ghz.

Step 5: Reboot into SPrecovery mode and mount:

mount /system
moust /sdcard

Run the adb command (form PC):

adb shell /system/xbin/flash_image boot /sdcard/evilboot8.img

(where xbin is xbin or bin depending on location of flash_image file on phone)

Step 6: Next, unmount in the following order and Reboot

unmount /system
unmount /sdcard

That’s all. Enjoy the faster Droid.

    Isn't the Droid powered by a clocked down 800+ chip in the first place?

    Wouldn't it therefore be within acceptance to put it back up at that level?
