Just one short day after the Motorola Xoom was overclocked to 1.2GHZ, itâ€™s now been pushed all the way to 1.5GHZ. This new speed helped propel the Xoom to a Quadrant score of over 3100 and a Linpack score of 47. The stock ratings are 2200 and 35 respectively. If youâ€™re ready to push your Xoom up to this new clock speed hit the jump for the full instructions. As usual, modding your device voids your warranty and you assume all responsibility if anything goes wrong.
1. Make sure you’veÂ unlocked your Xoom’s bootloader for flashing first, thenÂ root it.
2. Grab this zip and extract it. It includes a boot.img with the overclocked kernel and a corresponding wifi module:Â http://www.setcpu.com/files/xoom_ocboot.zip. Thanks to Koush for the rooted ramdisk in this boot.img!
3. Reboot into the bootloader by running:
adb reboot bootloader
4. Flash the boot image to your boot partition by running:
fastboot flash boot xoom_ocboot.img
5. Push the bcm4329.ko to your /system/lib/modules folder and reboot to re-enable wifi:
adb push bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko
The kernel defaults to 1GHz max for safety, and also includes 1.2GHz and 1.4GHz steps in addition to the 1.504GHz step. I’ve also updated SetCPU to support the Xoom, so grab that (I know the interface currently looks bad on the Xoom; a tablet optimized interface is coming soon!). SetCPU versions prior to 2.1.1 will not work for setting speeds on the Xoom.
