    I wonder if it is somehow overclocking the CPU on the iPhone. Are y'all noticing any increases in heat while using it?

    From what I learned Googling "Speed Intensifier", all it does is speed up the UI animations, thus making the device appear faster. It's not gonna break anything at all.

    you say its just the animations.....but a side by side test of my phone with it and my wifes without made me really wonder
    my phone is WAY faster

    try searching for stuf on maps....omg the difference
    netflix is almost instant now
    the server i run for my videos from the house is almost instant now
    even side buy side reboots are crazy different
    wonder if the iOverclock i run helps with this tweek.....SMOK'IN!!!!!!

    just seems all round a much better machine to have and to hold
    now i have only had it on an hour or so....ill get back after a good run with it.

    Well, like I said; that's what I gathered by Googling for the tweak. I don't really buy the fact that all it does is mess with the animations either, though.

    Here's what I think it does: the iPhone 4 uses a 1GHz processor that is supposedly underclocked to 800MHz for battery life purposes. I'm thinking that the tweak allows the CPU to run at its full 1GHz speed.

    I will continue to research this tweak and see if I can find a real answer as to how it works.

    im not sure if i want to push my phone to its full potential i mean its just like a computer, sure overclocking is great and it makes it faster, but it also makes it less stable and more prone to maybe hiccuping or crashing, and also i think the iphone is already fast enough

    This is a pretty neat tweak but it is just graphical only. Just try to move your icons they wiggle like crazy...lol

    For those that have installed iOverclock..... How much difference in battery life have you noticed? There is bound to be some difference.
