Default And now over clocked mobile phones

Id bought the nokia n900 back in december and though initially its future were glum things have changed now. Of all the good things that has happened since then, overclocking it has been the awesomest!

I used a kernel made by Lehto and over clocked the cortex a8 from 600 to 800MHz - 33% overclock. I used a ultra low voltage kernel and so core voltage has decreased to 1.14v giving me better battery life theoretically.

I've made a post with links on where you need to go for overclocking the n900.

If Any of you folks are interested in geeking out, move over to maemo.org and Search.

I have a general question. Can you do that after you buy the phone? Does Nokia provide that control to the user?

maemo.org - Talk

Do visit this site. every thing about N900 is right there.
@ampere. to answer your question. Nokia does allow anything to be done to the phone (N900 has linux operating system, hence open source). But If you overcloak and something happens to the phone, it falls out of warrenty. But still, every modicfication is doable on the phone owing to the open nature of the OS.

Yea, like anToNIcHeN said the OS is open source so you can do anything to it except that they will void the warranty. Then900 runs on Maemo, a debian distribution.

The overclocking is interesting for sure!

However, what i'm more interested to know about are the Apps, which is the one place where this phone can't quite match or beat its competitors (as yet) IMO :
- How many apps currently available? (compared to app store / andoid market)
- What are the best ones you've used?
- Do you know of any remote administration app?
- Can you recommend a winamp / vlc control app?

Maemo 5 doesn't have many compared to the competition - true. But when you install and use the LXDE (light weight desktop environment) then you can use any debian apps on the phone.. like GIMP and OpenOffice for instance. The Apple store has lots of apps with the same function but different names - you won't find stuff like that here. The apps in the maemo 5 repos are mostly free and easy to download and install using the built in app manager.

Apps i've used are varying, right now i mostly use firefox for browsing, xnote for scribbling notes and stuff, manual focus app to take total control of the carl zeiss optics, PyGTKEditor for coding, and a world of other utilities.. depends on what function your looking for.

If you meant accessing another system remotely that can be done if u have a linux system, iv seen people talk about it on the forums bout it, but have no experience.
