Earlier we covered a guide on overclocking Motorola XOOM tablet to 1.5Ghz. Now we have an overclock at 1.6Ghz thanks to Android Central forum member TDR who basically wrapped it up in a kernel developed by XDA-Developers forum member bigrushdog. Now many might wonder what’s the point of a 100Mhz increase? Not much, but this overlclocked kernel is meant for the new Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS.
From responses in Android Central and XDA-Developers, it’s easy to say that the kernel has been tested and reportedly working well. So if you like benchmarking your XOOM tablet and want to show of some incredible quadrant scores and can’t wait, we’ll move onto the instructions.
