    After reading several threads over the years there is a lot of debate as to if this is possible or not. People have come out with software scripts and plist edits to try and overclock but then other devs refute these fixes with contrary evidence. My opinion is that the clock speed is hardwired and if it was possible it would have been integrated into a pwnage tool or something years ago.

    My understanding (probably less than yours) of the various threads and debates seems to suggest it only worked (if it ever did) with a few specific kernels on a few specific devices; and the best reports of success were sketchy (not easily repeatable).
    I could believe that someone hacked up an older kernel, on a slower CPU that wasn't clock-locked, to get maybe 10% improvement. Even if some models are or were locked- that doesn't guarantee they all are.

    My opinion otoh, is that its just a huge waste of time.
    - It'll never be a feature Apple will normally support in the kernel,
    - the tricks you'd have to do would probably change with each new firmware
    - CPU might be clock-locked for all models anyway
    take your pick.
