    Here is the link to the site that shows the instructions: http://ipodtoucher55.blogspot.com/2009/10/how-to-overclock-ipod-touch-or-iphone.html

    If links such as this are not allowed then here is the article below. (sorry no pics)

    Overclocking is defined by Wikipedia as
    the process of running a computer component at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second) than it was designed for or was specified by the manufacturer, usually practiced by enthusiasts seeking an increase in the performance of their computers.
    Now this same concept can be applied to your jailbroken iPod touch or iPhone. This process will allow you to increase the amount of free ram your device has by using the flash memory that is intended for music, video, and apps and turning it into extra virtual memory.

    This virtual memory can be used by your device to perform normal functions while you play games and listen to music and have a movie downloading in the background with extra memory to spare. So lets get started!

    1. Make sure you are jailbroken. And that you are on or at an above firmware of 3.0.

    2. Open Cydia via your Ipod then, in the bottom right corner tap on the Manage tab.

    3. Tap on Sources then in the top right corner tap on Edit, then Add.

    4. Type in http://repo.beyouriphone.com and press Add Source.

    5. Once it's done, in the bottom right corner, tap on the Search tab.

    6. Type in iPhoneVM 2 (OS 3.X) and tap on it.

    7. Install iPhoneVM 2 (OS 3.X) to your device.



    There you have it, once you restart your device, you will have much more RAM to use for more functions.

    Please note that over-usage of this feature (running more than 7-8 memory intensive apps at once) may reduce the performance of your device over a period of time (a few years).


    Pretty simple! So simple I did it @ 3: a.m. this morning! LOL

    But is there a way to see Ram and memory and such?

    This has already been posted one way or another several times.

    As for your question on looking at RAM, if you have the latest version of SBSettings, one of the features in the "More" section is enabling the ability to look at your devices RAM in real time on the status bar.

    Gotcha!

    And about the "repost" I did a search and did not find this process, so it's good to give members a choice! Yes?

    Trust me I'm new here but I'm a serious veteran when it comes to forums! I'm a member of one forum that members there will publicly rip you apart for simply asking a question with out searching before hand! So I know my P's and Q's.

    Thanks for looking out for me!

    By the by, C4NNIBAL have you overcolocked?

    This is NOT overclocking.

    Overclocking is increasing the speed of your processor past manufacturer limits.

    This just configures iPhone OS to use a swap file.
