Motorola Droid X/Droid 2 Overclocked To 2GHz!

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha had promised that the company will release a phone equipped with a 2GHz processor by the year end. Well, Motorola might or might not be able to fulfil the promise but the Droid X and the Droid 2 modding community already has. Matt4542 of the DeFuse team has managed to overclock his Droid X and Droid 2 to a whopping 2GHz.

It was just a couple of days ago; we had reported that FreeWELL had managed to overclock the Droid X and the Droid 2 to 1.2GHz. Heck! These guys are trying to get the processor to run stably at 2.5GHz!!!

Along with this, another member in the Droid X/2 modding scene JRummy has released an app which allows Droid X and Droid 2 owners to easily overclock their phone’s processor. The application allows users to overclock their phone’s processor up to 1.45GHz as well as allow them to change the voltage supplied to the phone’s processor. The application also has Apps To SD support and an inbuilt Ad blocker.

The application is available on the Android market for a measly 0.99$.

Motorola Droid X Overclocked To 1.1 GHz

The Droid X is already a beast of a phone. The handset is powered by a 1GHz OMAP processor and sports a huge 4.3-inch LCD screen. After the Android 2.2 update, the Droid X is among the fastest Android handsets out there. Well, fast was not enough for the Droid X modders and in a bid to make the phone the fastest Android phone out there, they have managed to overclock the X CPU to 1.1 GHz. Motorola_Droid_X

A 100 MHz boost may seem paltry for now, but we should keep in mind that this overclocking mod is still in its infant stage. As time passes, I expect the Droid X processor to reach the 1.2 – 1.4GHz mark.   The man who made this possible is FreeWELL. He took the Motorola Milestone overclocking technique and used it on the Droid X. Along with overclocking; Droid X owners can also underclock their CPU using SetCPU so as to preserve battery.

P.S. The Droid X could already be overclocked on Android 2.1, this mod specifically refers to Droid X running on Android 2.2
