    Nothing in cydia. There's a few tutorials on the forum. Not sure if they work exactly tho.

    It is overclocking. Because the Processor is clocked to a value, if you increase that value its "over-clocking" - I wouldn't do it if I were you, as it can also damage the device badly.

    Ur logic is wrong. Overclocking is going beyond what the cpu is specified to run at. So no, this is just unlocking the cpu to run at specified specs like how its ment to be. Look at the psp it got it cpu unlocked and no harm was done.

    Overclocking is going 'over' the original value. You may be clocking it to its original potential, but you are going up the current value.

    The exact thing I said. You cannot unlock a cpu. Apple clocks the Processor to a speed. If you increase or "unlock" the value, ur going over Apple's standart, which means: no warranty and faster overheating (which can cause a really fast devicedeath as iDevices have no cooling options).

    Ok the 3rd gen 8gb and 2nd gens have a 620MHz cpu which has been underclocked by apple to 533MHz.So what he is doing is un-underclocking the cpu. In theory you could build custom firmware to change the clock speed, apple did this to the 1st gen ipod touch which also had a 620MHz which was underclocked to 400MHz and then a firmware update changed it to 420MHz.
