I posted a quick cheat's guide to recovering the bootblock in one of the threads that stinger posted. See here --> bootblock v1.0 <--

Unfortunately, it sounds like the CPU goes off and executes complete rubbish when you overclock too far, rather than just crashing. As anyone who knows much about flash memory will tell you, the most dangerous thing to Flash is a CPU executing rubbish!

Unfortunatly no manufacturers seem to include the flash write jumper any longer. This was a jumper that disabled writes to the FLASH bios, when removed. I suppose something similar could be done with the existing FLASH bios by masking the write access pin. I suspect this would void the warrenty though!

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
