    This was first posted in @dominater01 's discord and was discovered by Title OS

    Enabling a basic overclock on your Xbox One
    This was discovered by Title OS:
    1) Download hwinit.overclock.gpucpu.cfg
    2) Rename it to hwinit.cfg
    3) put it on a usb drive under a folder named $SystemUpdate
    4) plug the usb into your xbox
    5) reboot

    If you hear your xbox beep twice on boot up that means its working

    hwinit.overclock.gpucpu.cfg : https://anonfiles.com/57J60cDdo2/hwinit.overclock.gpucpu_cfg

    More info:
    The file enables an overclocked mode controlled by a byte at 0x8 and can have a value between 0x01 - 0x58. File Magic: 0x1-0x58 - 4E,49,57,48,02.Unknown FF range.

    Very nice but is there a stock file to return to normal clock in case I want to?

    sound good but can you give us more information? I saw that at 0x8 the default value it's 18 but this is for cpu or gpu? or this value is for a performance profile? can you give us some samples?

    Yes
    It is unknown how specifically each mode affects your Xbox, the changes are not permanent so just try things out

    Thanks for sharing! How do you recognise if this is working? Any sort of message, pop-up, noticeable better performance?
    Any risk of damaging anything?

    its not gonna make your original xbox one an xbox one x but it will have some improvement and does not really risk damaging your xbox

    Alright "mate", I'm not going to use it anyways but I just find it interesting that there's not even the slightest but if explanation other than how to perform this supposed overclock.

    Why does Dax care?!? Simply curiosity and perhaps credit to the person/team responsible for finding it.

    Edit: egg on MY face, you did credit someone! Anyhoo, still just curious. Nbd

    Without any explanation or source, it's just a risk for people to take. Also stuff like that leaves people bricking their consoles, not that I say it will but you never know.

    Edit: I see you added a source. I will check it out.
    If this works, it would be interesting to see a fps comparison,

    Do I have to format the usb drive with the xbox first before moving the .cfg file to the drive?
    I have never used any usb device on my xbox...

    most games are fps locked, but there might be slight increases in games that are unlocked, i believe it happened to thge one S, which has a very slightyl higher clock than the fat one

    For anyone interested in what the .cfg file actually has in it and don't want to blindly download some random file:

    Code:

    No idea how this enables an overclock, but there you go. Would love to see someone show some actual comparisons of performance difference, if any exists at all.

    as far as i know there isnt any video of it kicking about but trusted people in discord have used it and tried it with retail retroarch. not sure what else it has been used with though. not 100% sure but i think i see someone saying it was encryted! could be wrong information though

    So just a quick test:
    Loading forza 7 (from the xbox home menu) and one track took 132 seconds without overclock and 122 seconds with overclock enabled which is approx. 7.5 % faster.
    Don´t blame me on any technical details behind this. This is just what I have measured.

    do you get an option/choice to what you overclock too? or is it just set to one speed?
