Overclocking the Blackjack

You can safely overclock your Samsung Blackjack up to 252 MHz.  The default processor speed for the Blackjack is 216 MHz. I haven’t heard of anyone having issues once they overclock the phone. I’ve had mine overclocked for weeks with no problems. I bumped mine to run at 240MHz and have seen very little impact on the battery life of my phone. Don’t just take my word for it Google It (Overclock Blackjack) and do your own research to make sure you are comfortable with this.

You may ask yourself… How can I overclock my Samsung Blackjack? Let me explain how…

  1. First and foremost you’ll need to unlock your phone. Read my earlier post on how to unlock your Blackjack. If you do not unlock your phone none of the following recommendations will work.
  2. Now that your phone is prepped for overclocking you’ll need to download a few applications. From the research I’ve done, there are a hundred ways to do this, but a developer by the name of Tom Gech has created a nifty little application to speed up the process and make overclocking your Blackjack a breeze. Tom created a program called OmapClockPlus which is a helper file for an application called OmapClock. OmapClock does the actual overclocking of your phone, here’s the readme file translated from Russian. You’ll need both these applications to set up continuous overclocking on your Blackjack. Go to this post on forum.xda-developers.com and download the following (2) files:
    • OmapClock & OmapClockPlus Manual Installation.zip (13.4 KB)
    • OmapClockPlus_Wm_Smartphone.zip (4.3 KB)
  3. Unzip OmapClock & OmapClockPlus Manual Installation.zip
  4. Unzip OmapClockPlus_Wm_Smartphone.zip
  5. Create an “OmapClock” folder in the “Program Files” folder on your Blackjack (e.g. \Program Files\OmapClock) and then copy the OmapClock.exe and OmapClockPlus.exe from the OmapClockPlus_Wm_Smartphone.zip file to this location.
  6. By default the overclock speed for this setup is 240MHz. If you want to increase the speed to 252MHz open the File: OmapClock.lnk with NotePad or some other text editor and change the “-clock 240″ to “-clock 252″ and hit save.
  7. Copy the OmapClock.lnk file to the Startup folder on your Blackjack. (e.g. \Windows\Startup)
  8. Download the following file by right click the following link and click “Save Target As…”. Download File: OmapClock Shortcuts.zip . Unzip and copy the two files to your Blackjack’s Start Menu folder. (e.g. \Windows\Start Menu\Applications)
  9. Launch OmapClockPlus (e.g. Start > Applications > OmapClockPlus) and click “Register” once OmapClockPlus opens.
  10. Exit & restart your Blackjack. That’s it! If you want to make sure everything took go to OmapClock (e.g.  Start > Applications > OmapClock) and it should say “Current Clock: 252 MHz”.

I hope find this helpful & happy overclocking!

    Please, Help me! A have a BlackJack phone. I am now in Ukraine, the Europe, I have unblocked my BlackJack phone under this card GSM, phone works normally. But I cannot use the Internet as in phone the password of an input in a network is blocked. How it is possible to unblock the password? Problem in that at input of structure GPRS it is impossible to keep the password of the new operator.

    Just wanted to let you know, I just followed your instructions for my BlackJack running the WM6 beta, and it all worked to perfection. Program load time doesn’t seem to be much improved, but scrolling using the scroll wheel is much faster. Thanks for putting it all together.

  • Bio9456 September 16, 2007, 9:58 am

    I having alittle trouble getting this to load up on my blackjack. I cant really figure out how to get the file (setup XML) to go on my phone using Windows Mobile Device Center. So I’ve just been clicking and draging the file into my documents but when I open Security Configuration Manager it is still telling me I have a two tier setup. Any help would be greatly apperciated.

    I happy to have found this site, I already unlocked my Blackjack, now i’m in the process of installing OmapClock.ink file to The phones windows\Startup menu, how do I do that. I cannot open or view the Windows file on my desktop. HELP!!!!!!!

  • Cory February 14, 2008, 7:03 pm

    For those that can’t find the Windows Folder, are you by chance navigating your files via ‘My Documents’ from the My Stuff link in your Start menu? For some reason, someone made the grand decision to only let you view certain file types using the My Stuff file manager. If that is the case then to get the cab file go: Start > Applications > File Explorer. All you need to do is hit “Up” and you should see the Windows folder near the bottom of the folder list. Let me know if this was helpful.

    There is only 1 file in the OmapClockPlus_Wm_Smartphone.zip file. Can you clarify?

  • TorturedSoul April 14, 2008, 9:56 pm

    if you cant see the windows folder, click tools>folder options>view>show hidden files and folders…. that should solve it

  • birdboyee April 21, 2008, 7:39 pm

  • KichouFumetsu August 27, 2008, 12:50 pm

    ok, i have everything downloaded and in the folders required. i’m runnin a BJ1 with mobile 6 standard. radio version UCHA1. I believe the device is unlocked as i get a notice stating that the software may be unsigned, but i have a softkey to bypass that on the screen, i bypass, and the software installs. now when i go through into my start menu and select OmapClockPlus, it gives me the software, but everything is greyed out( i can stroll through the path, but i cannot change it)…if i run OmapClock, it goves me “Error Initialization failed. reason: Can’t map I/O”…what am i doing wrong? i really want to speed things up…

  • schizo November 25, 2008, 3:14 pm

    I also had an error “unable to map i/o”
    I have an SGH-i617. WM 6 (standard)
    I did some searching & found a version that works on my BJ II.
    I’ll put a link on Schizo’s Place: http://schizo.tk/

  • schizo November 25, 2008, 3:58 pm

    Ps. I’ve found that my SGH-i617 runs best at 288 mHz.
    Any faster & audio gets dropped after a short time.
    The difference between 252 & 288 is quite noticeable.

  • Siobhter January 7, 2009, 2:04 pm

    Any ideas as to how fast is too fast for this processor?

  • schizo January 28, 2009, 2:36 am

    I have recently recieved a new SGH-i617 from at&t running WinMo 6.1 and the fastest my phone will run is 276Mhz.
    Any higher and it locks up.

  • Kessy_sim@hotmail.com June 23, 2009, 11:59 am

    Is the program suppose to lunch whenever you reboot your mobile? Cuz thats what mine has been doing, how would i get it to run in the back groud, if i make the shortcuts hidden would that work? Also ive head of Tornado Power Control, how would i use that program and Omapclock together. All the other Forums ive seen give really horrible and confusing instructions.
