So nobody blames me later on-

What is overclocking?? Overclocking is the process of operating a computer component at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second) than it was designed for or was specified by the manufacturer, but some manufacturers purposely underclock their components to improve battery life.

In other words overclocking your device will almost definitely shorten our battery life (in a very noticeable way) and might cause your phone to overheat which may damage your centeral components (motherboard, GPU… they might stop working).

Now enough warnings, last night a tweet popped up in my timeline claiming there was a 1GHZ overclock for the Nokia N8m, now I haven’t tried this yet so I have no idea if it even works (nor do I plan on trying it, considering my battery is horrible as it is). Now you need a HACKED Nokia N8 to run this (simply signing your own certificates wont work, you have to have ROM manager and the other hacked files on your N8).

Apparently it’s quite straightforward, just unsign the .SIS file, rename it to Internal.SIS and Install. once you get it up and running all you have to do to revert to the default 680MGHZ is:

 To revert back to 680MHz, just delete the file C:\private\10202be9\20001079.txt

Once again I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS, I DO NOT TAKE ANY Responsibility FOR WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO YOUR PHONE (NEITHER DOES MyNokiaBlog) TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK (this will probably void your warranty, but hacking your phone in the first place also voids your warranty)

*Update: A bunch of people telling me that this is a Old Irrelevant mod that doesn’t work for N8 (Sounds extremly likely considering it’s coming form the same person who claimed to have an N8-01) check out what the file actually contains: http://twitter.com/#!/marvelprash/status/142891772903829505/photo/1 Thanks Prashant

But since you’re already here, do you think the N8 actually needs to be overclocked?? Is there any use?
