    Default safe to overclock A6? this guys done it to 1.7ghz?
    Ok so apparently according to this video the A6 in the iphone 5 is overclockable, this seems to make sense as it supports dynamic adjustments. this guy in this vid has oc'ed to 1.7ghz, holy ****..



    I translated the instructions in his description, do they look like they'll work? how safe is this to do?

    "THIS VIDEO AND THIS STATEMENT IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES, I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY ON ME WHAT YOU WILL.

    to perform the overclocking you must have the program installed on your device:
    Mobile Terminal

    steps:
    open the program and write inside "su root".
    at this point will ask the password: alpine
    after entering the password type:
    sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency_max=1600000000
    sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=1300000000
    sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency_min=1000000000

    reboot the device and you're done."

    thanks
