How To Overclock Motorola Xoom To 1.5 GHz

Ok guys the big news is here! Motorola XOOM has been overclocked to give a whooping stable experience at 1.5 GHZ! The credit for this overclocking of Motorola Xoom running Android 3.0 Honeycomb goes straight to coolbho3000 at XDA forums. According to the hacker, some simple kernel modification turns the XOOM dual core chip into a real beast and makes it snappier than the Tegra 2 3D.

Here is the step by step guide to overclock your Honeycomb tablet straight from the developer:
1. Make sure you’ve unlocked your Xoom’s bootloaderfor flashing first, then root it.
2. Grab this zip and extract it. It includes a boot.img with the overclocked kernel and a corresponding wifi module: 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 remount
adb push bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko
adb reboot
Here is the video of Motorola Xoom doing 1504 MHz!
