Pixi overclock to 900MHz possible, and coming soon

Palm Pixi Overclocking Palm Pre owners have been enjoying ridiculous overclocking benefits for some time now, while our Pixi-toting friends have been left to look in from the outside. Thanks to the work of WebOS Internals, that’s changing, with the possibility of the 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7627 processor hitting up to 900MHz. This is all thanks to, of all groups, the Android community’s hacking of the LG Ally, which uses the same processor. Who says we can’t all just get along?

Rod Whitby of WebOS Internals let us know that they’re still working on getting the overclocked Pixi kernel up to its full potential, but a recent teaser screenshot posted on their Twitter feed shows they’ve already broken the 800MHz barrier. Homebrew developer WartHog Kernel is taking the lead on development, which bodes well for the Pixi kernel. Further testing is in order, and for that more Pixi devices are needed.

As always, WebOS Internals provides all of their awesome kernels, services, and patches free of charge to the community, relying on your donations to stay in business. In particular, they’re looking for donations to help finance the purchase of a few Pixi devices to give the new kernel a thorough testing. So if you haven’t donated before (or are a Pixi owner with dreams of overclocking dancing through your head), head on over and give a few bucks to further the awesomeness they bring.

Thanks to Rod for the heads up!
