    Motorola Xoom Overclocked to 1.5Ghz - Available Now! (Video and Instructions)

    Credit to coolbho3000

    Instructions:
    1. Make sure you've unlocked your Xoom's bootloader for flashing first, then root it.
    2. Grab this zip and extract it. It includes a boot.img with the overclocked kernel and a corresponding wifi module: http://www.setcpu.com/files/xoom_ocboot.zip. Thanks to Koush for the rooted ramdisk in this boot.img!
    3. Reboot into the bootloader by running:
    adb reboot bootloader
    4. Flash the boot image to your boot partition by running:
    fastboot flash boot xoom_ocboot.img
    5. Push the bcm4329.ko to your /system/lib/modules folder and reboot to re-enable wifi:
    adb remount
    adb push bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko
    adb reboot

    The kernel defaults to 1GHz max for safety, and also includes 1.2GHz and 1.4GHz steps in addition to the 1.504GHz step. I've also updated SetCPU to support the Xoom, so grab that (I know the interface currently looks bad on the Xoom; a tablet optimized interface is coming soon!). SetCPU versions prior to 2.1.1 will not work for setting speeds on the Xoom.

    What is the Quadrant score of the XOOM not overclocked? Relative to Quadrant, I'm confused about the Moto Droid score. My stock Droid gets a score of 761. Is this due to the difference between the original OS and 2.2?

    That is crazy fast. I'll root and over clock once I get bored. But for now this is plenty fast. Maybe now more people will get the Xoom. Can't wait for the custom roms:-)

    Nice! I'm beginning to want a Xoom. Too bad I'm on financial lock-down until this summer. :'(
