For those of you who’ve installed Cyanogen Mod ROM, you can overclock your Nexus S to 1.4Ghz. Depending on your phone’s CPU, it can be less. For mine, I was able to overclock my Nexus S to 1.3Ghz.
To do this, you will need to download the overclocked kernel here (Check here for the latest updates):
Or just download this:
You need to first copy the above zip file into your Nexus S SD Card.
After that, go into ROM Manager and reboot into recovery.
Once you are in Clockwork Recovery, just install from zip and select the zip file you copied over earlier.
Once it reboots, install the SetCPU, download here (any version will do).
Then unzip the zip file, copy over the .apk file to your Nexus S SD Card.
Then simply open the file and install using File Manager.
Open the SetCPU and see how fast you can get your Nexus S phone to go. Mine would reboot at 1.4Ghz but worked fine at 1.3Ghz.Need Help? Follow/add me on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter!
