I assume you are asking about overclocking XScale CPUs as opposed to ARM (JS Overclock
) or MIPS (I overclocked my old E-125 to 204MHz using the pencil trick
, but it eventually died on me!).
I believe both XCPUScalar
and Pocket Hack Master
have some sort of a safe mode disabling speeds that would freeze your Pocket PC (an older version of XCPUScalar allowed me to push my e755 to 500MHz but also forcing me to do a hard reset!!).
A great option in both software automatically adapts the CPU speed depending on the CPU actual usage and as a result saves battery life.
FYI a third software option for older XScale CPUS is Clear Speed
