So nokia has made this phone for hackers it appears. It seems that to get the most out of this fone user will have to become hacker. Normal user neither has time nor inclination for geeky things. It is therefore not surprising that nokia is lagging behind other cos. Because other cos makes fones for users and not geeks.

Infact the modded fw is actually based on the latest v21 update and everything in v21 is still there in the mod. The only difference is some performance boost and visual tweaks.

And as far as I know, the ARM11 434MHz processor has actually been underclocked by Nokia to conserve power. The default clock speed is actually 600MHz which is the same used in E72. Not sure if it the same processor though but I'm guessing this processor is definitely capable of doing morethan 434MHz.
Sbdevilmind, 25 Aug 2010Hi. Since you said that you have got your cpu modded, i think you meant Cpu overclocking, righ... moreYes mate... I'm using a modded fw with CPU mod. Don't know if it actually increases the CPU clock. I've read somewhere that symbian doesn't have such a provision for controlling the clock speed. Anyway I'm not sure if it is the CPU or the optimised fw for all i know my phone is very snappy and responsive and is better at multitasking than when I was using the original fw. Battery is also not a major concern as I easily get 2 days of usage on a single charge but the increase in performance is appreciable. In addition I use a custom flash based home screen so I wouldn't be much surprised even if the battery backup is a bit on the lower side.

Wont overclocking heat up the electronic circuitry (other than cpu)and damage it. the ckts must be having some rating. Im sure nokia is not fools otherwise they would have increased clk too.
