    On 2.2.1 there was a .plist hack that was blocked im running a 3g 412mzh. Apple underclocked them to probley save battery life or meet an energy star requirment.

    There's nothing available that would do that at the moment.

    Even if you could, don't you think the added heat would fry the "innards" pretty quick ?

    Running the processor chip faster than it was set up to run by the manufacturer.

    I was looking into this about a year ago, and there is no way to do it. I actually came across a forum that had a donation set up for this one hacker to work on finding out how to do it. After a couple months he said that he found where the file was to change but it was hardcoded or something and could not be changed. Others confirmed it and they all agreed to give up.

    Or something along those lines

    There was a youtube video (taken down) that people claimed worked and had little to minor heat issues around 530mzh ill have to post some links. Considering its already underclocked and apple did overclock from 400mzh to 412mzh in a firmware update i would feel safe at 480-500mzh.

    I have just come to the conclusion that this is pointless.
