G2 goes jiggawatt

The T-Mobile G2 has been overclocked to an astonishing 1.9 GHz.  Read it slowly, it's not a typo -- I read it two or three times myself to be sure of what I was seeing.  Now to be clear, if you are a normal, well-balanced person who likes your G2 and uses it every day you probably won't want to do this one.  On the other hand, if you're like us, and you smile when the magic blue smoke comes out the back of a phone (then cry when you have to tell your wife what you did), hit the source link and give it a try.  Anyone still think the G2's CPU is slow?

And for the love of all things holy, share some screenshots in the forums.  [XDA-Developers via Android Police]

Ive been running 1.8ghz and its stable on my g2, its the 1.9ghz kernel that has the issues with stability. Im just saying this cause your article makes it seem more "foolish" than it really is, since you can use SetCPU to underclock it once it starts getting warm (profiles!)

I have often wondered why people overclock their phones to such an extreme? I understand that overclocking the phone may help lead to other things that can advance cell phone tech, but someone is going to rip a whole in the space-time continuum! When future Steve Jobs finds out, he is going to be pissed.... mildly.

2 girls with in a half mile? Yes I would like to view pics.
