Default OC Past 864MHz

How does one overclock the Avail past 864MHz? Is it possible?

Its completely possible with the proper kernel. The kernel limits determine Max clock speed.

...as well as using a few factors like how much heat your chipset can survive to determine if its worth it or not. More Mhz =more heat and strain on the prosseser. I have noticed that my phone actually seems runs faster clocked down a bit from the max.

The safety of your device needs to be taken into consideration.

It'll run up to 125* (ask me how I know via PM ). It does get highly unstable at those temps though.

I am not worried about overheating here in Alaska. My device never gets hotter than 25 degrees Celsius.

There's a rumor of a kernel with a Max clock of 1.5ghz. Its not readily available at this time, but, I bet it will be soon. I've heard its completely stable at 1.2, but the heat is an issue. It shouldn't be a problem in Alaska though.

I had mine locked at 846 least night for a few hours. in the middle of a phone call I could still hear the other person but they couldn't hear me. I looked at the screen & it just showed the boot screen. After a few minuets I pulled the battery.

The phone was hot so I assume the two was related.
