ive seen that the processor will get clocked at different rates (1.0 or 1.2ghz) after the ics update.
so how do you check that?
i'm overclocked to 1.25ghz using this method: [KERNEL][GSM/CDMA][ICS] Extra modules pack v0.1.3 (feat. overclock module) | Tweakerz - xda-developers
Tweakerz Over clock module (apk) For Motorola Droid Bionic - xda-developers
i barely figured it out, but i just extracted the .ko files from extra_kernel_modules_0.1.2.zip into /system/lib/modules then installed the Tweakerz app and followed the guide in the second link. pretty simple looking back, but i was confused with all the script stuff, didn't know i could just skip it by using the app.
i'm on .246, btw. this does work. i think i can go as high as 1.6ghz, but 1.25 is running pretty stable. i've used my phone HEAVILY today, and got 10 hours out of the extended battery. half the time i was using mobile hotspot, so i'm very satisfied with ICS and my decision to overclock .
1.0ghz. I've read that gb didn't run dual cores well or something (not sure how true that is). Even before i overclocked, ics was way faster.Originally Posted by xPlatinum-Androidx
I have to say I was about at my wits end with this phone before the ICS update. I was on a very old build with theory rom, off upgrade path, so I couldnt get the newest 905 update. This past weekend Id finally had enough and decided to try the House of Bionic thing, then manually update to ICS. Its made a world of difference with this thing, almost like its a different phone. I actually dont hate my phone any more.
And I just saw this thread, downloaded the quadrant app, and see my processor is at 1200mhz. That was a pleasant surprise. I got my bionic maybe a week or 2 after it was released last year so its not like it was even an older build. Moto has actually restored some of the faith Id lost in them and in Android overall.
