We recently reported that the Droid X and Droid 2 had been overclocked to the amazing speeds of 2.0 GHz! (See article here)
But sad to say that it appears we have been duped by the new “Team DeFuse”, and that it is a possible fake.
The information comes from long time developer coolbho3k, who is also the creator of the great app “setcpu”. As a long time member if the Android community, I personally consider him to be one if the most well known and trusted developers that our community has to offer.
His recent tweets explain it all:
@coolbho3k Okay, the 2GHz video is a deliberate and obvious hoax, not even confusion.
@coolbho3k Probably baksmali’d setcpu or did some very weird stuff with the Milestone Overclock module.
@coolbho3k The G1 community got this a long time ago: Just because CPUfreq (and by extension SetCPU) says you’re running at 2GHz doesn’t mean you are.
So it looks like we have been duped, as I would put my faith in coolbho3k any day of the week. But what do you think? Let us know.
