    I've read earlier threads about overclocking.

    However, I would love some insight from other people. Have you overclocked your iPod Touch 2G? If so, how was the experience, was it difficult, are there speed differences?

    I would really appreciate if people would answer.

    Thanks.

    I heard battery life would decrease a LOT, as more energy is required to power up overclocked devices. Also, there's more chance of being hotter and even damage it. Even explosions may occur. I'd rather not to try it. Think twice before overclocking, trust me

    No methods work on the latest firmwares, there was a method that worked, but the files used changed with 3.x.

    I tested a few methods. None of them worked even the slightest.

    The only logical way to overclock now is to modify the kernel.

    Say I could go back to 3.x.x. What would be a good target clock for the iPod Touch 2G be?

    I think it was changed in 3.x, but I'm not sure, I know that the files weren't there for 4.0+ anyway.
