    Default Overclock
    The Droid has it. I want it for my iPhone. why is it so much more difficult to do?

    I don't care about the risks of over heating and all that bullcrap so don't waste forum space with warnings and what not.

    I want to run my 3GS at 1ghz instead of 600mhz.

    The droid can go up to 1.3 and i'm constantly getting crap from a fellow nerd who has rooted his Droid. lol not to mention how sick it is to have the ability to control the CPU so u can save battery etc...

    I love my iPhone but the Droid is looking much for dev and root friendly. Although my contract with AT&T doesn't expire for like a year. I hate failed data connections and dropped calls. Droid..verizon.. i feel like a traitor saying that but hey supply and demand right?

    Why would u wanna overclock a 3gs.
    Already fast

  3. #3
    Sure Me 2 , I would test it

    I think the 3Gs only does 833Mhz

    I thought Apple did this in a software update before

    and many people say its impossible unless you tweak hardware

    I think it can be done

    Apple hasn't bumped the speed of the processor with firmware. Sony has for the PSP but don't think Apple has. There are threads on here about overclocking but nobody got it fully working correctly I don't think. You could start looking at that thread.

    I also want it done. I remember on the psp bumping it to 333mhz and runing isos with almost no load times.

    1.0 to 1.1.1 was a bump of 400mh/z to 412mh/z

    And yea, my PSP is still running at 333 xD It may not be running but the last clock speed it was ever at was 333.

    try this


    OK some people are confuse so I hope this helps
    (Do not use none of this method together they will cause lagging)
    The VM is a virtual memory on your phone. The
    Chinese method, the free ram method, and the com.dynamicpage.plist
    method. From experience I think the plist works better and smoother.

    Over clocking the iPhone. A couple of weeks ago people where
    talking about modified the iPhone
    com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist to change the processor
    speed so I had an idea to change the 3g plist with a 3gs SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist, the 3g
    CPU runs at 412mhz and the 3gs runs at 600mhz. It works great, my phone runs
    faster, my battery last 3 hrs more and my phone doesn't heat up anymore when I charge it. (This was teste on iPhone 3g)

    Which one is better? If you want more memory run multiple apps in the
    background and play big games, to do so use VM. Or
    if you want speed/better battery life/ a smooth running iPhone use the
    overclocking

    Installations:
    Here is the Chinese Version:
    Download the .deb file here: Download iPhoneVM.deb Download iPhoneVM.deb from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
    SSH and place the .deb file into directory of choice (i usually use /
    tmp)
    Open terminal and navigate to where .deb file is stored on iPhone (ex,
    use command cd /tmp)
    Install using command dpkg -i iPhoneVM.deb
    REBOOT iPhone (turn power off, then back on)

    Here is the .plist version (modified by stinky1):
    Download the .plist here: com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist
    SSH into your iPhone and place the .plist in /System/Library/
    LaunchDaemons/REBOOT your iPhone (turn power off, then back on)

    Here is the fREE RAM version
    Go to cydia and add this repo http:/vnmagic.net/cydia/ and install
    FREE RAM app. Reboot your phone

    Here is the overclocking version
    com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist version ssh into ur iphone
    and go to system/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle
    and replaces the file SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist save original
    and reboot your phone and ur done. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=3...4e75f6e8ebb871

    Uninstall
    Chinese Version
    Open Cydia and uninstall it. (Should be at the very bottom of packages)
    Now SSH into your iPhone and navigate to var/vm/ and delete the swap
    files inside. (DO NOT JUST DELETE THE ENTIRE var/vm DIRECTORY - ONLY
    DELETE THE FILES INSIDE)
    Now navigate to System/Library/LaunchDaemons and delete the
    com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist file Reboot and your done

    FREE RAM version
    Open Cydia and uninstall it.
    Now SSH into your iPhone and navigate to var/vm/ and delete the swap
    files inside. (DO NOT JUST DELETE THE ENTIRE var/vm DIRECTORY - ONLY
    DELETE THE FILES INSIDE)
    Now navigate to System/Library/LaunchDaemons and delete the
    com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist file Reboot and your done

    .plist Version
    SSH into your iPhone and navigate to var/vm/ and delete the swap files
    inside. (DO NOT JUST DELETE THE ENTIRE var/vm DIRECTORY - ONLY DELETE
    THE FILES INSIDE)
    Now navigate to System/Library/LaunchDaemons and delete the
    com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist file Reboot and your done

    overclocking version
    ssh into ur iphone and go to system/Library/SystemConfiguration/
    PowerManagement.bundle and replaces the file
    SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist with original and reboot your phone
    and ur done

    DISCLAIMER
    The above information may or may not work for you on your
    Iphone. Proceed at your own risk

    the only way to overclock is to ask planetbeing.. hes underclocked so he will know how to overclock, but i doubt he will tell anyone how to do it cause itll cause too much trouble with people not using it right or not knowing what it does

    Thanks! Just tried this on my 3g and have so far noticed the speed improvement. I'd already disabled many launch daemons and removed un-needed language packs,... but now even speedier!

    I've stated this at iPod touch fags before, The SystemPowerProfile, or anything thats a plist, has absolutely, ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the cpu speed.

    I was talking to Planetbeing on IRC roughly a week ago, he has had success with the overclock, as seen on one of his viemo videos. Its all set in iBoot, and any average joe can do it as long as they know how to use IDA Pro.

    He plans on releasing a application, much like LogoMe, edits the iBoot speed, flashes the img3, reboots. He told me he wanted to get it done in a few weeks, but who knows, hes working on Android quite a bit.

    awesome, i never thought he would release it

    I made the changes to the .plist to overclock a while ago, and it might be a placebo effect but the phone does in fact seem faster. I'm 100% willing to try the method you just mentioned once it's released but for now at least I think my iphone is faster

  14. #13
    The only relevent thing this plist has is it changes the speed to a much duller one, like hibernation in sleep mode. It should wake up quicker, In therory, but really, nothing too exciting, it does diddly swat.

    very nice..
    cant wait..... lag=death

    Really? SweetNESS But I hope it's soon, like 4.0 soon.

    @Nicholas Huh.. After using the 3G[S] plist my iPhone seems slower...?? I am on beta 4 however.

    EDIT

    nevermind.. Damn, it's BLAZING

    and go to system/Library/SystemConfiguration/PowerManagement.bundle

    The Info.plist file is home to the metadata about your application used by the operating system. Most Cocoa programmers know that it stores the bundle identifier, icon name and version number of an application but the Info.plist can also control access to essential iPhone hardware resources and can change the very nature of your Mac OS X applications. Which is the reason they are used in most mods since the code can access hardware processes, enable or disable depending on "state" of events.

    I have been running this mod for a few days along with Supercharged, everything feels a bit speedier, not a great increment but noticeable on my 3G.

    Didly squat that.

    It is faster. It works the same way it does on a pc
