BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!

Let's just get the usual comments out of the way shall we.

"This is dangerous."

"The reason why apple underclocked the processor is because it would kill it a lot faster; your battery's chargeability would last longer than an overclocked processor."

"It's going to brick your iDevice."

"My suggestion is to always free up your RAM, It's a lot safer and there's absolutely no risk."


Okay now that it's out of everybody's system. Let's continue...

This type of thing tickles my Pentium II Fancy. Not sure if it's legit though. Has anyone tried it?

Curious to see if anyone has tried it and what it does... seems odd that you just rename a plist file and don't actually edit anything inside the file.

This is very old. Needless to say it does nothing and has been proven to do nothing. All it does is drain your battery faster because the power control features of the CPU are turned off.

Move along.

From the video, it just tweeks the power management. I guess it fools the iPad into thinking that it has to throttle up all the time.
