    Hi everyone, I read about engineering screens a while ago and at that time I didn't tried them because I thought they might disable my device if something went wrong . just yesterday I read the post again and I thought maybe I should give it a shot. (not recommended though, It can permanently disable your device). First I tried it on my q10 and then on my passport and I changed the clock rate of processor from 1.5 to 1.7 ghz but there is no option to save the setting. if I close the escreen and then reopen it again it will show the old settings. I was wondering if anyone have tried it and can help me out. both devices are working fine though. and I can't find any changes. I think the settings are not getting saved. if anyone can help me out to save the settings. although I wouldn't prefer anyone to try it because the risks associated to it.

    here's the image of the changed MHz rate. -

    Don't think you can do that on any BlackBerry. They can't be rooted to give you access to the Hardware.

    actually, you can,the factory options were working at 10.2 or earlier OS. I tried on Q10.
    I think in the later OS blackberry aborted the development of these uncommom functions
    these options in the screenshots are designed for Q10 or Z10 with MSM8960 due core @1.5Ghz, passport has 4 cores @2.2Ghz, 1.7Ghz is really not overclocking at all. and even if it works, I don't recommend it , it will fix your CPU at the chosen speed and stop it from adjusting automatically.

    Nothing wrong with keeping the CPU at the chosen speed. I overclocked my HP Touchpad tablet with fixed speed constantly and it was just as stable as before. The only gripe is that it drains the battery faster (a little faster to much faster depending on the chosen o/c speed).
