Can you overclock your Droid X like you would a PC? I still got mines kicking around cause I am outta work and cannot afford to upgrade....So I was looking to overclock the thing and possibly root it again.

Thanks

You can overclock it. You'll have to root it in order to do that. Do you know what android version you are running?

Once rooted you have some options for OCing. I always liked JRummy's Root Toolbox. There's a free version in the Play Store. It has many other uses also.
