Has anyone considered overclocking their set top boxes? There are a number of apps in the google play store for this, but they all require a rom capable of over clocking...
My Jynxbox or Pivos XIOS are my preferred candidates for this experiment.
They both run on a single core 1GHZ Cortex A9 CPU.
Does anyone recall a phone with a similar chip or other relevant specs? The reason I'm asking about phones is because there has been much more research on android phones then there have been to date with set top boxes. Lots of their lessons learned could be transferred to this application.
If anyone else has considered over clocking, or if you think this is a ridicules idea, let me know...
Yes, it would defiantly be something that would have to be watched closely and done in small increments of time and settings. The main chip appears to be on the bottom of these devices, and the bottom panned appears to serve as a heat sink. Someone could put a bigger heat sink and sit the device over a pc fan powered by usb...
It may look a little hacked but no worse than a raspberry pi
And I mean red hot after a while.. so I can see the life of the drive not lasting. So I have actually pulled the Drive cage out and left it open so there can be some air going through it..
With the Lastest M1 kernel from pivos I have it up to 900mhz and it seems to run fine, I keep an eye on it for heating issues and already have it sitting on a laptop usb fan base.
On another note, instead of O/C it.. something like this thread might be of more benifit..
