    Anyone find out what speed the A4 is running on the new Ipod Touch? Also, I wonder if it would be possible to overclock it?

    Unfortunately not going to happen mate. The heat output of the touch is high enough anyway. Overclocking would probably melt the thing. Maybe if you could adapt a third party colling system then it might be possible. but still unlikely

    Well I know with my Palm Pre I was able to overclock it from 600 - 800 without adding much heat to it. And the Palm Pre is plastic. I was thinking if you jumped the Ipod Touch a few hundred mhz it might not be so bad since the back is metal. Just a thought.

    OC'ing would be cool, but it most likely would damage components :(

    WHY would you want to overclock an ipod touch?

    This would add another feature to the iPt, you could use it as a mobile cooking plate!

    I'm sorry, but I was literally bursting out laughing when I saw the thread title. Come on, get a good laugh everyone. Its good to laugh. :)

    Anyways, no, it's not possible. It would seriously strain the battery, and overheat the iPod and all that other bad stuff. We wouldn't want your brand new iPod touch to explode ;)

    Makes you live longer. :)

    :Laughs uncontrollably:

    I don't think it would matter much. Even if you could, it would probably mess it up some how.

    lmao

    the processor speed of the A4 chip in the ipod touch 4g is 1Ghz but its underclocked to 800MHz to keep it cool :p

    At 800Mhz it still runs pretty hot after about 10 mins of gaming. And also for the heat to get to the metal at the back it still has to run through all the internal components first. So over clocking will probably kill the thing in less than an hour or so.

    know its old but actually you CAN

    incredibly or maybe not so much ¬¬*all idevices are UNDERclocked why? to make battery last little longer anyway you can modify a file if you have a jailbroken itouch and make processor run at stock speed for example itouch 4g's A4 is actually 1ghz but it runs at 800mhz you can modify some files to make it run at 1ghz if you want even more performance at cost of battery duration.. greetings to all.. know its old just wanted to revive the thread :D :apple:

    Even if it's possible, why? The heat issue would outweigh any performance gain.

    That has long ago been dis-proven. I'm assuming you're referring to the power bundle hack. All that does is prevent the CPU from going into low power mode when the screen is off. Thus, causing the battery to drain faster with no speed gain.

    Please stop spreading disinformation about the topic of overclocking via the power bundle hack.

    overclock ipt 4g

    if you have had an ipod touch 2g or iphone 3g that was jailbroken, most of you would have wanted to overclock it by going to power management and removing the reduce processor speed key.
    well the power management file is no longer in pod touch 4g i am currently running ios5 but i found it in a different file go to /system/library/coreservices/ the go down untill you see powered.bundle.
    you will see a text document that says com.apple.systempowerprofiledefaults.plist
    open that and and go throught and remove all keys reduce proccessor speed and above the key it will say interger 1 remove that to.


    hope this helped!:)

    This does not overclock the iPod or increase its speed. All it does is force the iPod to run at its set speed of 800Mhz all the time and not allow it to sleep the CPU. What this actually does it decrease the battery life drastically because the CPU cannot sleep when the screen is off. Do not do this unless you want a much reduced battery life and no speed gain.

    To overclock an iPod touch or iPhone...

    Go to System/Library/System/System Configuration/PowerManagement.bundle/ and delete the com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefault.plist file or rename it. Reboot the iPod touch and you get an extra 200mhz. (1GHz instead of 800mhz)

    Like I said two times already in this thread, that does not overclock it. All that does is prevent the CPU from going into low power mode when the screen is off. Thus, causing the battery to drain faster with no speed gain. It does not get you 200Mhz more. The clock speed is set by the iBBS, not by iOS and cannot be changed by altering anything in iOS.

    Change this plist's name

    com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefault.plist

    com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaultBACKUP.plist

    it is located here

    System/Library/System Configuration/PowerManagement.bundle/

    That doesn't overclock it. You can't overclock an iOS device.

    Doesn't it just aggravate you when someone answers with invalid information without even bothering to read the less than a page thread?

    Yes. Compound that onto reviving a 6 month old thread.

    Speed intensifier: Overclock

    You could always jailbreak your iPod or iPhone and download Speed Intensifier.

    1. download the latest version jailbreak
    2. jailbreak your device (instructions should be in the program)
    3. add the source: "repo.insanelyi.com"
    4. download "speed intensifier"

    Enjoy your overclock :)
