    Is there any way to overclock an iPhone 4 processor so it runs as fast as the iPads? I have searched, and haven't found any methods that are proven to work.

    Why would you want to? The phone works just fine the way it now. Wait till the next firmware and maybe this will be needed. =p

    It's needed. Maybe not for the iPhone 4, But definitely for the iPhone 3G. 4.0 has brought pain and agony to us, its so slow it's almost unbearable. We really need to get a processor bump soon, or Apple is just asking for trouble.

    As with medical conditions if there is one treatment/cure it works (most of the time) but if there is a whole range of treatments then none of them will work that well.

    So it is with 'overclocking' methods, I have found a few and none have worked. If there was a way which worked you would be able to find it much easier. Probably the only way to do it effectively would be to make a custom kernel.

    Well, is this something the dev team would be interested in one day?

    I don't know, the reason it is underclocked is because it can kill your device. I don't think they would want to be responsible for stupid people going nuts with their device speed. But if it was unchangeable and device specific 40-50Mhz more than apples imposed speed would work fairly well with minimal heat issues.

    I see. I don't get why apple would put a 1GhZ processor in the device if they only run it at 600-800 MhZ? Why not put an 800 MhZ processor in the iPhone and cut down on production cost?
