Android is a really flexible platform and hackers are having fun pushing devices running the Android OS to their limits! blackjackboy @ XDA just released a custom kernel for the Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) overclocked to 1.2 GHz. The Samsung Captivate was already fast thanks to its 1GHz Hummingbird CPU now it is even faster.
blackjackboy even claims that the Hummingbird CPU could be safely overclocked to 1.6 GHz!!
If you’re interested in this overclock hack for the Samsung Captivate go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=746343. You’ll have to download the file, flash it using Odin3 Flasher and you’ll need to get SetCPU from the Android Market.
SetCPU is used to increase the CPU speed to 1.2 GHz.
