How to modify and overclock Nexus 4 GPU.


You might have faced some lagging issues while using High-end Android Smartphone, and when you have a number of games and other apps dumped in your device you will feel your device much slower and laggy. Android is designed in such a way that there are many apps that use to run in the background and consume lots of RAM and CPU processing.

To Solve these issues there are many apps available on the market, particularly the cache cleaning apps that maintain your system RAM intact to get better results.

However if you still want to gain some extra power from your CPU you can modify the kernel. There are different modified versions available for High-End Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC devices. But for today we test our skills in overclocking Adreno 320 GPU fitted in Google Nexus 4 or you can say LG Nexus 4.

Do it at your own risk.
