    I am currently running ICS .211 OTA 4.0.4, and I am rooted using matt's utility 1.7. I want to change the kernal so that I can overclock my phone. Is their a way for me to do this without using a custom Rom?

    If I cannot do it without using a custom rom can someone point me in the right direction on which rom I should use, and the best way to install it/accomplish this goal. I have never used a custom rom/kernal or safestrap/bootstrap.

    NOTE: I have an android razr maxx.

    Utterly pointless post fyi.

    I'm guessing that means I cannot change the kernel? would be nice if you would take the time to write out more than two words.

    The Razr/Maxx, along with almost every Motorola phone, has a locked bootloader meaning that there is no way for us to change the kernel. They claim it is for security purposes. We claim BS. Even if you flash a custom ROM, there is no way to change the kernel.

    SOME custom ROMs run a script, like a command in the software, to overclock. It doesn't change the kernel. You would have to ask a developer for the Razr about the script.

    I believe Matt's Utility has an overclock option.

    Not so sure the new version has OC'ing...

    But then again I ask myself, why overclock a RAZR??

    True enough, it's plenty fast and there are other options for preserving battery.
