You know how a few days ago hackers managed to install a custom kernel on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer and get the Android tablet to run at up to 1.4 GHz? You know how the tablet wasn’t particularly stable at that speed, but ran OK at 1.2 GHz? Well, nevermind all that… because now xda-developers forum member Blades has posted a new kernel that allows you to run the tablet at up to 1.6 GHz.

Blades reports the tablet is relatively stable at that speed, but of course your results may vary. Bear in mind, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor is overclockable, out of the box most Tegra 2-based machines run at 1 GHz. You’re taking your battery life and your warranty into your own hands if you decide to boost the clock speed by 60%.

Still… would you look at that Quadrant score?

One reply on “Overclocked Asus Eee Pad Transformer hits 1.6 GHz”

  1. Transformer stuck at logo startup + click sound!

    On my asus
    transformer android 3.1, I installed from sd.zip the file to overclock to 1.6
    (after making a system backup in CWM). Forgot (important?) tot wipe cache and
    dalvik cache. Installation was succesfull.

    On reboot i
    saw a status bar very shortly between the top of the logo (EEE pad) and the Asus
    logo on the bottom. Than it looked like this system was going to start but the
    logo’s came op and freezed. After a few second a clicking/ticking sound comes
    up. Logo + clicksound stays and everything is realy stuck!

    I’have
    tried everything many times: on/off with button and in recovery, restore backup
    (complete and advanced part by part), battery drain etc. NOTHING helped.

    Whatever I
    do, when starting up the logo comes up and freeze + ticking sound.

    WHO can help
    me (beginner) out … or is this the end of my short life with this super
    tablet?

    Many thanks
    for a helping hand.

    Walter
