richardtrip from XDA Developer forums has come up with a custom overclocked kernel for the HTC Thunderbolt that allows to overclock the CPU up to 1.76 GHz in the latest revision! This is up from stock 1GHz speed of Snapdragon!! This is really impressive right?
- HTC Kernel 2.6.32 (Overclocked & Undervolted)
- Max 1.6Ghz (for now)
- Voltage min/max 900mV-1425mV
- SNQ’s VDD interface (change voltages on the fly)
- BFQ io Scheduler (Paolo Valente)
- EXT4 support
- TUN support (module)
- CIFS (+utf8) (module)
- You will need a rooted HTC Thunderbolt to make it work, so for that follow the one click root method that we reported earlier.
- Afterwards just download the kernel from the XDA developer forum and flash it through the recovery mode.
Note: Don’t forget some people are reporting rebooting issues after overclocking to 1.76 GHz by using this kernel so be warned!
