Overclock Huawei Ideos X6 To 2Ghz [How To]

ideos-x6-2GhzHonestly who would have though the Ideos X6 was capable of leaping to a massive, 2Ghz overclock. We’re talking about a budget oriented phone here after all. This comes in from XDA-Developer Napstar who developed a custom kernel for the device that was then overclocked to 2Ghz. Credit also goes to XDA-Developers forum member DoomLoRD.

The developer has released quite a few iterations of the kernel, which are specific to the ROM you may be running on your device. There’s a kernel for Stock and most custom ROMs, CyanogenMod ROM, edowar’s release and MIUI ROMs. You can head over to the forum thread to download the kernel specific to your ROM and also check out all the changes that have been made to the kernel over time.
