    Hi, I recently rooted my galaxy apollo..I want to over clock my CPU to about 800MHz.. I came across 2 applications for that, setCPU and Overclock Widget.. both of them could not get me beyond my stock CPU speed that is 667MHz..
    In setCPU I do not know how to get it, but in Overclock widget I went to advanced settings> 'check' use your frequencies> click here to define> and added 720, 760 and 800..then went back and under 'Screen On Freq Settings' set 740 to be max and 380 to be minimum..but when I go back to the widget and set it there again it says 'set new clock successfully' but the widget says 667 only :( can you tell me is my CPU been overclocked by this or not? cuz when I ran the CPU benchmark application it says 667 MHz and 2840ms (which is same as earlier I think)
    So can anybody please tell me any other way to overclock or a correct way to use these apps? :(
    plz reply, thanks :)

    You can't until you find a recompiled kernel that unlocks the CPU.
