    Overclocking project.

    a while back a friend of mine and I got interested in how to overclock an iPhone 3G.

    As you may or may not know, Apple underclocks all their iphones, the 3G seems to run at 420mhz or so, the 3GS at 600mhz, and the iphone 4 at about 850mhz. These numbers are questionable because there is no known accurate clock speed tester.

    I went in and edited some files with a plist editor to try and boost the clockspeed to either stock or OC but didn't have much success. I am going to give it another go soon when I get another iPhone.

    If anyone has any ideas on this or technical expertise please reply so we can try to get the most out of our devices.

    I tried that already using some tutorials online, they all come up with great intensive tests and nice results, then it gets wierd...
    Most of the ppl dont have any or none of the results as the ppl who created the tutorials. In this age of copy/paste without really trying and a-friend-of-a-friend-did-it experiences, I just cant trust most sites or achievements...

    This is the latest thread I was following on the issue:
    http://modmyi.com/forums/file-mods/7...g-3gs-4-a.html
    Again, I tried it and it didnt work, maybe I did something different or something important is missin from the tutorial..

    Btw, that happened too with the Game Center on 3G MOD, some really important files were missing from most tutorials online so I was sure it didnt worked untill it did.

    Same thing also on HDR pictures MOD:
    http://modmyi.com/forums/file-mods/7...1-devices.html
    It says it works in all 4.1 devices and appears to be working on 3GS already, but not in 3G.
    :/

    I've also heard some peoples benchmark scores have been reduced??

    Don't get me wrong though, I love the idea of overclocking and do it all the time on Android, but also maybe does anyone know a method of underclocking?

    Have you overclocked it then, it should show 800mhz if you haven't as Apple underclocked it from the start. But yes if you've overclocked it it should say that
