The HTC Inspire 4G on AT&T might have HSUPA disabled — at least until a firmware update re-enables it — but it also had its Kernel Source Code released by the manufacturer which always means custom ROMs are on their way pronto.
There’s a custom kernel for Cyanogenmod 7 over at XDA Developers which is modified to overclock the smartphone’s processor to 1.8GHz — among other features added. Overclocking a Qualcomm 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU to 1.8GHz, meaning an 80% increase of frequency is dangerous as with the case of any other overclocking procedures and deep hacking applied. That being said, if you need to give it a try, follow the source link to grab the kernel and read the instructions as well as the feedback.
