How to Overclock the Nokia n900 up to 1 GHz

A jack of all trades, the Nokia n900 proves his usefulness once more. If your hunger for speed has not been fed for some time, we have good news for you. The Nokia n900 can be overclocked to 1 GHz and still be booted. After some tests, where the n900 was overclocked a full weekend, the maximum stable frequency has been found: 900 MHz, for an average medium temperature.

In the lines bellow you will learn how to overclock the Nokia n900 to a frequency of your choosing. Also, this tutorial does not work on Windows 7 because of USB problems. We suggest Vista or Win XP.

A bit of a warning before, please do not keep your device overclocked for long period of times. It has not been created for these purposes. If you are a stunt junkie, try it sometimes, and head back to the original speed. Malfunctions are possible. There are many variables to count on, including the medium temperature and minor glitches to your phone.
