Palm: Don't use the unofficial "overclocking" patch

Last time I checked no manufacturer condones overclocking...

That's not 100% accurate anymore with the newer i7 intel chipset they recommend an overclocking option. I would assume that this is so that you don't over over clock and melt your pc.

And the phone with this intel chip would be...?

They should upgrade the processor so their poor customers dont have to OC... and while theyre at it, up the screen size so its not so girly.

As long as you don't overclock the phone to the point where you can't reset it to factory defaults, it's highly unlikely that anyone would be able to tell that the phone was damaged due to overclocking. I don't really get the big deal though. I overclocked my Droid and didn't see much of a difference in speed or performance. Unrooted it and went back to defaults, I'm waiting for the 2.1 upgrade, but I am getting impatient. Might just have to hack it again.

I don't know a manufactuer out there that wouldn't love being able to report better speeds or accelerated performance for their devices. However, as phone333 pointed out, when you run the processor at full throttle, overheating begins to be a concern (my car's speedometer reaches 180, it's prob not recommended I run it at that speed consistently). If you get a warranty exchange, and the manufactuer finds the board melted when they inspect it (and they DO inspect them), it's a simple matter to find out which acct had that deviec last and slap a charge (full retail) for the voided warranty replacement.
