    hey everyone ... does anybody know how to overclock a evo 4g passed 1190mhz and have it remain stable?

    Hi.
    Yeah. Are you on an ASOP rom? You could flash the tiamat kernel, which allows you to over clock up to 1267MHz. I find the one before it(1228MHz) would be most stable to me. Try it out and see.

    [Kernel][AOSP] Tiamat 4.0.2 | 2.6.38.6 | 5/11/11 - xda-developers

    Some phones can't handle that that much. That is why you see a lot of kernels only going to 1190. That is the range that all phones will stay stable.

    Totally normal, each chip is made ever so slightly different. The factory just makes sure it can run at 1ghz (1000) and anything over that is just bonus really.

    So some phones cannot go over 1190, some cant even go over 1130. There really isnt that much a performance difference with it so i wouldnt worry.

    Just make sure you don't set on boot until you are confident your phone is stable. The one and only time I had to do a complete fresh install was when Tiamat was clocked to high and it sent my phone into bootloops.

    I can occasionally go to 1228 on Tiamat 4.0.2 (yay HDMI-EDID fix merge!) but usually it will lock up. There's no tangible difference between the two clock speeds on Performance gov. for FPSe, so I really only push it to 1228 to see if it'll lock up. One thing I've learned is to uncheck Set on Boot when overclocking, lol! I have set it to 1190 min/max Performance for days on end (Seidio 3500 ftw!) without a problem. I couldn't care less about benchmarks, so eh!
