    Original droid, someone people are able to oc'd to 1.1 or 1.2 stable(from stock 550mhz).

    Droid X being already 1 Ghz.. what will be its potential to be able to oc'd to?(stable)

    Does anyone have info on this already?

    Thanks for this question as I would like to know? I would like at leasts 1.3 but not too much higher cause the phone would get too hot and eat the battery too fast!

    the droid was underclocked, I don't think the X is underclocked, much like the incredible. So the 1ghz you get with that phone is where it stays. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong though, but thats my understanding.

    Although yes the droid was underclocked, The X's cpu it better than the droids. It doesn't mean that the droid was a 1ghz cpu underclocked. So while the X's is at a normal 1ghz, you wont be able to squeeze as much out of it as you were able to on the droid. I would imagine a 1.2-1.5ghz speed it a good overclock for the X!

    Yes, but the Droid is underclocked from 600MHz to 550MHz. I've just moved from 1GHz to 1.2GHz with no issues, temp is a degree or two higher at most.

    someone correct me if I'm wrong, but with a locked bootloader, i don't think custom overclocked kernels are possible

    Thats right. It may be rotted, giving you the access to stuff like SetCPU to clock at your will, but without custom kernels, you wont get higher than 1GHz most likely.
    Course, I don't see a point with this phone being so speedy and snappy already..

    Well my Droid was snappy and speedy when I got it, 2.1 slowed it down, 70+ apps slowed it down .......

    You're wrong. The Milestone has been overclocked yet its' bootloader is locked.

    This is from Howardforums.com. Winston25, one of the two guys who work(ed) for Motorola and gave us lots of advanced information on the Droid X (the other being Bill23 who changed his forum name to something with an X... like Xbernaut or something, and who says he no longer works for Motorola).

    No entirely true. The Milestone is still locked down but it has been overclocked with just root access. I tried it and it worked. I don't know how that guy figured it out, but it is impressive. You should be able to do a search and find the explanation. His method may work on other phones as well, but I haven't tested it.
    I just did. I stand corrected.

    Natty_Lite: It has been. Apparently new parameters can be written to the kernel without actually flashing it. Seems like the only thing that people will be missing out on indefinitely, is the ability to flash new versions of the OS before they're pushed over the air. All the other hack related goodies like OC'ing, and WiFi tether appear to be in tact - Once the phone gets rooted of course

    Natty_Lite: Seems my info wasn't entirely correct. The phone can be overclocked. However, it will still take some trial and error to figure just how high it can go while maintaining stability."

    I must apologize to you from pete's forum cause i went and bought an X :\ :icon_ banana:

    Just remember people, the EVO 4G has been overclocked to 2.3Ghz... (correct me if i'm wrong) but i'm pretty sure i read that somewhere. So its not hard to believe we could see 2Ghz once our community works their magic.

    Don't the Evo, Nexus One, Incredible and X all have the same 1ghz Snapdragon CPU? Only difference in potential should be how well it's cooled.

    No, Incredible and Evo use snapdragon, X uses OMAP 3630 from TI, so they are different chips.

    I believe the EVO (Snapdragon) has been overclocked to 1.267Ghz so far. Seeing that the original Droid's 600Mhz OMAP has been more than doubled in overclocked speed, it would be insane to see the X's OMAP doubled to more than 2Ghz!

    Basically however I believe the point of the talk from the other posts is this:

    With the locked bootloader you won't be flashing a new OC'd kernal onto the X.

    But ... You would have to edit parameters in the current kernal to OC it once rooted.

    Thats what i gathered as well... we can still hold out hope that someone will crack it... I'm truely not holding my breathe.

    Have we gotten ACTUAL verification that its digitally signed? from someone that HAS the phone in hand???

    The Milestone has a locked bootloader, yet it has been rooted & overclocked. There is actually a free app in the Market (Milestone/Droid Overclock), that allows the Milestone to be overclocked with SetCPU without flashing anything. I used this app on my Droid when I first rooted, because I wasn't sure how to install kernals and it worked great. I believe that it only works for 2.1 though, I tried it when I went to BBv0.4 & it didn't work.

    SO, if this is possible on the Milestone with a locked bootloader, it should be possible on the X.
