Whoa! Well, no, let me stop – we already knew the EVO 3D’s and the Sensation’s chipset could do at least 1.8GHz stable. What we didn’t expect was that a hobbyist developer would do it so soon, and without the kernel source or S-Off, no less. Coolbho3k has done just that, teasing the EVO owners with a mere image of his phone overclocked to 1.7GHz inside his application, SetCPU. While he hasn’t had a Sensation to show this off with, he says it should work for that phone as well.
You rooters already know how trustworthy and talented this guy is so you’re free to get as excited as you want. This is a loadable kernel module so all you’ll need is temporary root, something that’s already been made possible thanks to the folks behind Team Win. I’ve seen this chipset in action at 1.8GHz and I can tell you that you won’t be able to contain yourself once you apply this overclock. We look forward to more details.
