HTC One X for AT&T, Rogers and HTC EVO 4G LTE overclocked to 1.8 GHz
We don't have to remind you that you should know what you're doing before overclocking your phone. You could brick it, lose the warranty, and have a stupid friend try to fix it by putting it in the microwave oven. Also, it could mess with the earth's inner cellular clock and destroy the planet. But hey, Angry Birds plays faster so what the heck. Actually, we're just kidding about the destruction of the earth, but not with the destruction of your phone.
For those with the HTC One X, check out the first sourcelink while those with the HTC EVO 4G LTE should click on the second link. As usual. if you go ahead and take the risk, let us know how it turns out for you. You might even give us some benchmark scores from your overclocked device.

Vroom! Battery life suffers, but that's potent!

Yeah, I would be interested on the actual usefulness of this... would it be worth the process?
If anyone does this kind of stuff, please share the results!

IMO you really don't need to overclock a S4 dual core 1.5ghz processor. It just isn't worth the risk.

I would only really feel safe overclocking up to 1.7 GHz.

Tried over clocking it...drains battery even faster...running clean Rom 4.1...with 1.85 kernel...getting ~4600 on quadrant and decent battery life.

RootzWiki.com is better in my opinion. XDA is VERY, VERY cluttered.

And then just flash a custom kernel..thats it...
