Featuring a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, the Motorola Droid RAZR and its younger brother, the power-packed Droid RAZR Maxx can now be overclocked at higher speeds or can be underclocked to save battery life. All of this is possible, thanks to an overclock/underclock script developed by developer coryjohn87.
Users will never have to worry with regards to setting the clock speed of the processors as the overlock/underclock script already features several overclocking and underclocking profiles already set at different maximum and minimum frequencies.
Take note that overclocking your device is a dangerous thing to do and can cause serious damage to your phone. Proceed only if you are sure of what you are doing and already experienced modifying Android phones in the past.

Paul and I.T. are synonyms. If you need help with I.T.-related stuff, call on Paul. His experience with Android phones goes way back to the ancient single-core-phone days. But, he keeps himself up to date, so now he has a dual-core beast in his pocket, and is looking forward to getting his first quad-core monster, and when it comes, his first eight-core phone. Perhaps he should be called Mr. X-Core, where "X" equals the number of CPU cores.
