AT&T HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE Overclocked to 1.8GHz
Overclocking a device can have a lot of uses. It can help eliminate the last few traces of UI lag, it can make games run faster, and it’s always fun to point out that a dual core running 1.8GHz is faster than most desktop computers were 10 years ago. Despite the setbacks, users generally enjoy being able to overclock their phones. For the AT&T/Rogers HTC One X/XL and the HTC EVO 4G LTE, overclocking is now available.
Originally brought to the EVO 3D by XDA Elite Recognized Developer coolbho3000, the kernel modules were brought to the AT&T/Rogers One series devices by coolbho3000 as well. The EVO LTE kernels modules were ported from the AT&T One to the EVO 4G LTE by XDA Senior Member Art2Fly.
Despite being for different devices, the method to install is the same. Users adb push the krait_oc.ko module, install the modified thermald.conf, and load the overclock. When finished, users will be able to set their overclock in applications like SetCPU. The removal process is simply restoring the original thermald.conf and removing the added module. For EVO LTE users, there is an easier route as XDA Recognized Developer Dread 7us has created an application to automate the process for those uncomfortable with doing it manually. Proceed with caution, however, as overclocking does have an inherent risk to the hardware of your phone.
To get started, AT&T/Rogers HTC One X/XL users can check out the HTC One series thread. HTC EVO LTE users can check out the EVO LTE thread and, for the automated app, the application thread. For users rocking the HTC One S, coolbho3000’s module may also work for you as well.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
