DROID 2 Overclocked Too!

And just as we got done telling you about a Droid X overclocking method yesterday, we get the same method ported over to the Droid 2 today.  There really isn’t much to say except, good luck!  The method is for pretty advanced rooted users, but we are seeing 1.2  and 1.4GHz overclocks which is pretty significant.

Anyone down to try it?

Full support thread with instructions at Android Forums.

Cheers Ben!

    lol one dude over in AF got a 2452 in quad! amazing!

    • Pandemic187

      Meh. That's ridiculously high. There are some things that can be done to make Quadrant scores higher than than they “should” be – which is one of the reasons why Quadrant scores don't mean all that much.

  • Arnmsctt

    This is awesome. Last night I was finally able to convince my girlfriend to let me root her pants-I mean D2! Now it's time to talk her into the fast and dirty world of overclocking.

  • RoadsterHD1

    Let's get more Quadrant score up….

    • Pandemic187

      1471 at 1.1 stock voltage.

      • RoadsterHD1

        Is that score with a DX

        • Pandemic187

          D2…that's what this article is about.

          • RoadsterHD1

            My bad, you're right. Do you have it OC'd

          • Pandemic187

            Yeah. 1.0 is stock. I'm at 1.1. I got ~1350 at 1.0.

          • RoadsterHD1

            Can you get it to 1.5GHz?

          • Pandemic187

            I don't know, but I know some have run at 1.4 with some stability.

  • Mr. Joshua

    (off topic) – question for you guys (maybe Dr. Root): what exactly does partitioning the sd card through rom manager do? And why should I do it (or not)?

    • EC8CH

      I believe it allows for apps2sd

    • Mrpicolas

      it allows you to use the space as virtual memory 4 older devices with limited memory and with newer devices is really not needed

      • Mr. Joshua

        So for Droid 1? Good idea?

        • Mrpicolas

          Not needed for the d1 more geared towards the older devices like g1

          • RoadsterHD1

            My D1 seems to run low on memory and it tends to slow down. Will partitioning the SD help?

          • Mr. Joshua

            So for newer apps (like flash) and potentially Gingerbread that are (or are rumored to) require more on-board memory than old faithful has – would this be the way to go?

        • Pandemic187

          I used to do this on my Tilt (phone is 3 years old now I think?).

      • RoadsterHD1

        So does this increase my internal memory by using the space as virtual memory like a RAM optimizer would do on a PC?
