    Default Make the iPhone CPU faster via Pwnage
    It's possible to adjust clock and FSB speed via software. Apple did it going from firmware 1.1.1 to 1.2. I wonder if the Dev-Team could build in a tool to adjust these speeds when building a custom firmware...

    good observation and idea.

    would overclocking put the iphone at risk? anyone know the max possible mhz the iphone can be pushed up to? maybe we could find a safe number if we knew what overdoing it would be lol
    1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

    You mean put it running like the Touch 2g processor? It might get alot of heat, and battery life would surely suck. But it would be nice to have a SBSettings toggle for turbo mode

    I've got a lot of OC experience with computers. But honestly, I don't think it'd be to smart to do it with the iPhone. When you OC the processor run at a higher voltage first drawing more power and lowering battery life. And second, generating a lot more heat which could in turn result in the "temperature warning" screen we saw a few posts back and possible processor damage. I've done my share of frying a few in my day. That's why overclockers build cooling systems that use either a monster fan or a refridgerant system.
    It could be cool to have a faster phone but I doubt the risk.
    Just my 2 cents. If anyone does have succes with it def let me know how it works out. That is a hobby of mine.

    Well it wouldn't technically be overclocking since the processors come de-clocked. I just want my 650mhz that my processor was made for.

    Any updates??? Has anyone enlisted the help of saurik or the Dev team???

    Might be useful for 3G owners I'd prefer underclocking, to be honest... anything to save battery life!

    I just think it would be nice to have a toggle for when the phone is running slowly but I know I have access to outlets soon and no worries abut power. Imagine a nice turbo mode toggle on SBS.
