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.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
