I am currently in the middle of testing the 500-550 ranges.
BTW, thanks a lot for this method!

how do you know this works? is there a way to see what speed the iphone's cpu is running after?

I wrote a small plugin for mobile substrate that displays my clock speed in the top-bar instead of the clock.
But unfortunately, when you set the number to anything but the system default it totally breaks the systems stability...
I really doubt it works.

Ok I tried this and used isystem info from iTunes and it still says 412 MHz. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I fallow all instructions. Maybe it's the text editor. What do you all use?iam on windows and just used notepad to change and save than but back in phone with ifunbox.

HowTo Overclock iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS CPU
05-25-2010, 03:16 AM #49Overclock, how to
Steps to Overclock or increase CPU Speed of iPhone and iPod Touch
Step 1. Navigate to System/Library/System/System Configuration/PowerManagement.bundle/
Step 2. You will see a file named “com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefault.plist”
Step 3. Instead of editing, you are just rename it to “SystemPowerProfileDefaultbak.plist” so the device does not recognize it.
Step 4. Do a reboot and you overclock your iPhone.
Increasing the clock speed would degrade the CPU’s lifespan and is therefore not recommended. Do at your own risk. We will not be held responsible for bricking your iPhone or iPod Touch.

"sysctl hw.cpufrequency" from the terminal to see clock speed. *
after changing the file name previously mentioned it will reset to the default clock speed of the chip. (600mhz ish for 09-10 models)
emulators are actually playable now.
side note : battery does drain faster which is expected but also seems to drop while sleeping / in standby.

I tried to edit the .plist so that it doesn't overclock to 600 but abit less but I can't seem to find anywhere on the .plist the number 412. Is that possible?
06-08-2010, 12:39 AM #55
does it work by renaming the file name? it doesnt seems to work on mine..

This quoted method is a freakin joke

The iPhone 2g does a lot faster with that method mladen2008 posted. I'm wondering if you edit this "<key>Reduce Processor Speed</key>", would you be able to keep the clocks up and still have power saving functions. The power doesn't seem to be that big of a drain on my phone. It seeems about normal to me. My iPhone usually can only last 1 day of use before dying.
