The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
Viewsonic GTab Overclocked to 1.6 GHz (And Scaled Down to 1.4 Later)
Ahh… the Viewsonic G Tablet. So far, one of the only true contenders to the Motorola Xoom (until the Transformer comes out, that is). This $300 dual core, 10.1 inch tablet has taken the world by storm, particularly because most of its competitors with similar hardware are charging twice as much for their products. In an attempt to make this device sweeter than it already is, XDA member pershoot has been playing around with the kernel and finally got it to a point where the device basically went into hypermode (look for G Gundam to understand the reference). The dev was able to get it to clock at 1.6 GHz, but because of UV being applied, it was scaled down to 1.4 GHz, which is still pretty amazing. The benchmarks run (I know that there are many out there who believe that benchmarks mean nothing) are nothing short of amazing: 57.657 on Linpack, 3088 on Quadrant, and 4433 on Smartbench.
Have you tried this kernel yet? If not, give it a shot and see how you like it. As always, be extra careful when overclocking anything as there is a potential danger for the device to get fried. Have fun!
- overclock to 1.4GHZ (mblaster)
- max bootup clock to 1000 (Cpasjuste)
- min mv: 800, max mv: 1200
- reduce voltages
- update FW for wifi from nvidia to 4.218.248-18

Notes from the Editor: As per the dev, the kernel runs at 1.6 GHz and bench scores are higher. All of these have been updated in the body of the article.

Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
