At the start of the week we saw the new Droid X being overclocked nicely to a stable 1.1GHz. And at the extreme other end we saw some outlandish speeds of 2.0GHz on both the Droid 2 and the Droid X!
Now even if you were considering to modestly overclock your new Motorola Droid device, you would of had to endure some lengthy and intimidating steps to get it done. Well we knew that wouldn’t cut it, with all the great Devs out there working their magic, we knew it wouldn’t be long before a nice and simple method would make its way into the community.
Today has brought us not one, but two new apps that allow rooted Droid X and Droid 2 users to overclock and adjust their core voltages to to a varying degree. First off the Devs from Unstable Apps, who are well known for the release of the 1-click Root app (Easy Root), have released a simple and straightforward app called DX/D2 Overclocker. This app is contains a basic UI and lets the rooted user easily overclock their device. It doesn’t let you go crazy, but it will safely overclock your DX or D2.
Second on the docket is an app from ROM developer, JRummy. The app is named Droid X/2 Overclock and gives the user a little more control and few extra goodies. Droid X/2 Overclock gives a pretty good selection of core speeds and voltages, the highest being 1.45GHz! If that wasn’t enough, JRummy threw in a AD blocker and apps to SD support.
Both apps are great and each come highly recommended. They both can be found on Android Marketplace, and won’t cost you more than .99 cents.
