Do You Have A Wave(Droid) And Would Like to Overclock It? Here Is How…
Well, it looks like development on the Samsung Wave is paying off rather nicely. In case, you haven’t been following the Bada scene, developers have successfully ported Android 2.2 (Froyo) and slapped it on top of Samsung’s proprietory OS in a project called Wavedroid. Well, now that Android is fully functional, tweaking efforts are underway. In this particular case, XDA member ispanecaaaa showed us how to overclock the device to about 1.6 GHz. Most of you Android users will be familiar with this process as it is done with setCPU. However, for this to work properly, a different image must be installed than the original wavedroid one. Also, you need root due to SetCPU being utilized. People have been reporting good results so far and seems to make the device less glitchy and more responsive, but only at lower clock speeds. Some people have also provided Quadrant scores as well as proof of improvement.
The dev provides rather clear instructions on how to achieve this and even links to the wavedroid project thread in case you are not certain on how to get Android going on the device. If you have any feedback or find any bugs, please let the dev know.
This is the tutorial how to overclock our Samsung wave with Android.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
