Motorola DROID overclocked to 1.1GHz
The guys at AllDroid have done it again. This time, they have overclocked the DROID to a top speed of 1.1GHz. At that rate, the device was faster than a stock model of the Nexus One which comes with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood. The testing set the DROID's processor to speeds of 800MHz, 900MHz, 1GHz and 1.1GHz. The DROID was deemed to be most stable at 800MHz-900MHz. 1GHz was tested for just 5 minutes and 1.1 GHz was unstable. The DROID comes out of the box with a TI OMAP 600MHz chip underclocked to 550MHz.

That they overclocked the Droid to 1.1 gigahertz. I'm sure the context clues were simply too subtle, yes?

I would mind finding out how to overclock my droid to 800MHz. They should come out with a how to guide and an app to help.

At 1.1 Ghz it'll iron your pants, fry an egg, and reheat your cold starbucks in the morning.

Seeiing as how the proc is underclocked anyway I'm guessing this wasn't that hard to accomplish. Someone had already oc'd the Droid to 800MHz a few days after it's realease. At least according to a post I read on 1 of the Android forums.

They also set a record for the fastest death of a full charged Li-Ion battery

What are the chances that overclocking slightly to like 600-700 not interfering or causing too much heat? It would be good to know b/c if you boost it even 110mHz you get 20% increase which is doable and would seem like a legitimate hack without causing too much harm.

Is there an Over Clocking app for android yet? On a weird note: There an iphone "hand warmer" app that runs the processor crazily in the background to overheat the iphone and warm your hands!!

This feedback section is great just for the smart-ass remarks. Kudos to you guys. And who are these speed-demons pushing these processors?
