Nexus 7 overclocked to 1.64 GHz, destroys benchmarks

Those awesome Android developers never let up when it comes to the cutting edge. Take the Nexus 7 for example. It rocks the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and packs plenty of power. Thanks to a few of our favorite developers and kernel builders we now have it overclocked to nearly 1.7 GHz, and destroying everything on the market in terms of benchmarks. More details to get started yourself below.

SetCPU overclock app updates to 2.3 for Ice Cream Sandwich

CPU speed isn't everything, but to a certain segment of the Android community, it's the only thing that matters. Not unlike the gaming PC world, getting your phone to run as fast as possible is a source of pride among hardcore geeks. SetCPU has become one of the most-used methods forvrclocking a rooted phone, and now it's got an Ice Cream Sandwich-flavored update. The new app is available on the Android Market  Google Play Store for $1.99 - and no, you don't need to re-buy it if you already have.

AT&T Galaxy S II kernel source code released already by Samsung

Let the hacking, modding and overclocking begin once this device is finally able to be purchased. Samsung has already released the kernel source code for the AT&T version of the Galaxy S II, even though the phone isn't even out yet. We sure wish other companies would do the same (hint HTC). While Samsung released the code for the Epic 4G Touch on launch day, they've gone a step further here and it's already available before the phone itself.

LG G2x Overclocked to 1.5 Ghz, scores almost 4600 in Quadrant

I know we talk about overclocking and benchmarks quite often, but it is a little exciting you have to admit. Seeing what the amazing developers and kernel builders can squeeze out of these devices, all that extra power they can unlock and keep the device stable. Today I have some benchmarks I have done myself this morning on my T-Mobile G2x running at 1.5 Ghz on a EXT4 kernel by Morfic, and I was getting some pretty huge benchmark results.

Xoom overclocked at XDA

A true constant in the gadget universe is that if a new Android device comes out, you can bet someone over at XDA forums is going to throw caution to the wind and push the edge of the envelop to see what it can do. And the Motorola Xoom is no exception. XDA forum member Coolbho3000 has reported he he overclocked the Xoom up to a max of 1.5 GHz. According to the post at XDA Forums, CoolBho3000 was able to safely get past the Xoom's max setting of 1Ghz using SetCPU, a utility he wrote to help users boost the power output of their devices.

Exclusive: Nexus S overclocked to 1.3GHz running flawlessly – Demo

We have been following up with Team Whiskey very closely, a well known development team that reaches out to XDA Developers. Our staff has installed their Trinity v1.3 ROM and can vouch for its stability in every area of functionality. This is Team Whiskey's latest release and has proved some amazing quadrant scores in comparison to the stock ROM on the Nexus S. You can clearly see how much higher the Trinity ROM + Kernal's CPU score is compared to stock. The voltage was also increased from the standard 1.2V to 1.4V. When the voltage is pushed higher, the memory increases as well. As we know, quadrant scores aren't everything. We need our smartphones to be extremely reliable and would prefer them to be as fast as possible. That's why we decided all of our visitors at Android Community deserve a true tour of an overclocked Nexus S. The below video displays the fastest phone we have yet to cover.

Nexus S overclocked to 1.2GHz with new Bionix NS1 kernel

The Nexus S' single-core Hummingbird processor was one of the main disappointments about the second official Googlephone, so we won't argue with a replacement kernel that can squeeze extra juice out of the Samsung chip. A new xda-developers kernel promises to overclock the Nexus S to 1.2GHz. The tweaked firmware is still a work in progress, with Bluetooth left to fix, and it builds on the existing Bionix NS1 mod. Obviously overclocking your phone leaves it potentially more vulnerable to hardware damage, so try at your own risk, but it'll be interesting to see how these tweaked Nexus S units compare to dual-core devices like the Tegra 2 based LG Optimus 2X.

T-Mobile G2 Overclocked to 1.9Ghz

So you want a fast phone, yes? You've got a fancy fabulous G2 in your hands and you want to see how far it can truly clock, perhaps? I think ye do, of COURSE ye do. You like to live on the wild side, and you want to see your phone clock in at 1.9Ghz and attain the lovely 2700+ mark in Quadrant. XDA forum member Flippy125 did it, and now so can you! But don't, of course, because more than likely most people trying it will fry their phone into oblivion. But if you don't think you're going to be one of those people, do read on!

DX/D2 Overclocker brings simple Droid X and Droid 2 Overclocking to the Android Market

From the same app developers that brought us Easy Root, we now have available some minor overclocking with a few simple taps.
