    You can download quadrant standard to check the clock speed. That info is under system info.

    Thanks. I'm still at 1000.

    I'm starting to thank maybe they locked newer Bionics @ 1000Mhz, I got mine in April. some will overclock to 1200Mhz and some won't, it seems the luck of the draw.

    When did you purchase your Bionic?

    Opening Day for Bionic
    I'm at 1.2

    Good theory...newer Bionics locked at 1.0

    Purchased 4/12 im @ 1200....but my quadrant scores are lower than i thought..... any reason why....

    Maybe it was REGIONAL.

    I got my Bionic in South Florida and bought it on release day.
    1.2 Ghz here btw.

    I bought mine the week it was released in Georgia but I will have to wait until the OTA as I have not installed the leaks.

    I will post as soon as I know!

    After installing .246 I am at 1.2ghz...

    Lol Dan! I dont know if were ever gonna find out why some bionics are locked to 1ghz.

    Maybe the ICS leak for the bionic can sense your brains ability to process things through the touch screen and decides if the owner can handle the higher speed. Just saying that's my theory because no one else can figure it out. Oh and mine is clocked @ 1.2ghz

    As I've said the chips that fail 1200Ghz for Razr got retested at 1000Ghz for use in Bionic instead of scrapped. Of course most chips pass the 1200Ghz test so they got used in Bionic to. So some overclock fine and some won't under ICS.
    It's the only theory that makes any sense.

    Interesting. So, they put in failed CPUs in my BIONIC 2 months before they even put ht RAZR out?

    Mine is a day one purchase, and I have yet to see 1.2 GHz. I think it has to do with the time I upgrade to 5.X.893 and then tried to revert to 5.5.886 back in the day....

    I am still sticking with my theory....

    Then I'd be a 4.0 :p

    I'm running ICS .232 (didn't check prior builds) but I'm at 1.2 and I got mine shortly after release

    Bought mine on release day in Atlanta and have been clocked at 1.2GHz on all the ICS leaks. Wife's Bionic is the same way.

    Not sure I understand the theory about Bionic CPUs having failed the stability test for the Razr. If that were the case, then none of them should be stable @ 1.2GHz, no? Otherwise they would have been used in a Razr instead.

    My money is on the theory that the upgrade performs a stability (or possibly heat) test prior to first booting into ICS, and clocks the CPU based on the results. Either that or it's just some kind of glitch.

    Bought mine at CostCo in Morrow drop day - drove up from Warner Robins, got to CostCo about 45 minutes before the phones were released. First customer to get one (second phone overall, b/c the WA kiosk manager bought one for herself).

    And I'm on 1.0 GHz.

    I tried cooling the phone down a lot using compressed air on the last time I performed the upgrade. Made no difference. Still at 1.0.

    I might have stumbled onto something.

    I compared the contents of my kpanic partition with two other users, both of whom get 1.2 GHz (remember, I don't).

    Theirs were empty. Mine is full of data, 1400 lines of it.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    I'll test tomorrow and see.
